13 Best Self Tanners for a Healthy Glow

jhon pablo

Spending lots of time indoors gives you plenty of opportunities to indulge in self-care — but it can also leave you slightly paler than you’d like to be. If you’re not venturing outside too much and are longing for your usual summery faux glow, the answer lies in a quality self tanner.

While self tanner has a reputation for being tricky to apply — it can end up developing unevenly, in streaks or outrageously orange — certain products make it easier than others.

These days, sunless tanners come in tons of formulas: spray mist, mousse, serum, lotion, towelettes and even double-duty tinted moisturizer. Just choose the one that you’re already most comfortable applying (we love a good airbrush-like mist), give yourself a thorough body scrub to slough off dead skin cells, dry your skin completely and then follow the instructions on your chosen bottle.

A few tips: If you have

Core Change fitness studio still adapting since reopening

jhon pablo

“There is so much more than fighting this one virus. We need to pay attention to it, but need to think about things to improve our overall lives.”

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — While many small businesses have slowly been reopening over the last few months, it’s still a tough road ahead.

Fitness studios are one group of businesses that are still adapting to the new regulations and change of pace.

Inside the Core Change’s Bearden studio, the whir of music and machines is an encouraging sound for owner Lacey Robinette.

“It’s definitely been tricky, opening a small business then only having six months to get it off the ground, then being shut down completely. We have certainly felt the impact,” Robinette said.

She’s one of many small business owners trying to get back on their feet during the coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s obviously a lot of nervousness and unknown around COVID and

Your diet, hormones, and skincare routine could play a role in excess shine. Dermatologists share the top reasons for oily skin, plus what to do about it.

Even though it can feel like you’re plagued to battle adult acne forever, know this: “Having oily skin is not necessarily a bad thing,” explains Tyler Hollmig, M.D., director of Dermatologic Surgery and Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at Ascension Texas. It protects your skin barrier which locks moisture in, and therefore “can help keep you looking younger as you age.”

That said, excessively oil skin has a laundry list of potential causes—some of which can signal that something is off in your body. More likely than not, a combination

Self-Imposed Obstacles That Ensure Failure

Gordon G. Andrew is Founder of Highlander Consulting Inc., a New Jersey-based firm that helps clients to create, grow and keep customers.

There are practical reasons diet companies and national gym chains spend most of their advertising budgets within two seasonal windows: in advance of the new year, when people make their annual resolutions, and in springtime, when beachgoers face the prospect of wearing a bathing suit in public.

Despite best intentions, many people who join gyms in January are likely to drop out in February, and many other new members will drop out within the next few months. Countless research studies also suggest that many people who lose weight will regain all of those pounds within a year, and likely add more.

There are valid social and physiological reasons most people don’t do the things necessary to maintain their personal health and fitness. On their journeys, they

If Your Diet Isn’t Working, Try the Anti-Diet Instead

Diet culture is scary. Even the word “diet” can send a shiver up our spine. We’ve been conditioned to believe that dieting is all about cutting out our favorite foods, tedious meal-prepping, never ordering out, working out every day and pushing through the hardships rather than enjoying the ride. And if our results don’t look the same as someone else’s? Automatic failure.

It’s time we all expand our definition of good health. It doesn’t have to mean just one thing. We’re all different people, after all. And that’s exactly why the “anti-diet” is starting to make waves. What if, instead of focusing so much on weight loss and a body that’s impossible without Photoshop, there were a different way to approach a long-term lifestyle change
