Is soap made with BACTERIA the secret to healthy skin?

We should be buying body washes and moisturisers that nurture the billions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that live on our skin to keep it healthy — if big skincare brands are to be believed.

Like the gut microbiome, the trillions of ‘friendly’ bacteria that inhabit our gut where they keep ‘bad bacteria’ at bay, the skin microbiome is increasingly believed to be important for health, with imbalances linked to skin conditions, including rosacea, acne and eczema.

Harsh cleansers, body washes and scrubs are being blamed for disrupting the balance of our skin microbiome and, just as ‘probiotic’ yoghurts are marketed as a way to up the ‘good’ bacteria in the gut, it is now possible to buy toiletries designed to nurture and boost the ‘friendly’ bacteria on our skin.

Age: 27

Skin Type: Combination

Skin Concerns: Congestion, dryness, uneven skin tone

Growing up, I was never really aware of my skin. TBH, I was one of those girls who never wore foundation and rarely ever got a blemish. Back then, my skincare routine consisted of just splashing cold water on my face and using a random drugstore cleanser in the shower. But those days are long gone.

I developed hormonal acne, a picking habit, and hyperpigmentation in my early twenties. I tried dozens of skincare products, usually whatever made it onto Sephora’s bestseller list, but none of them worked long-term. My skin

13 Best Self Tanners for a Healthy Glow

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

Is a Low-Protein Diet Healthy? Here’s What Dietitians Think

While the only traveling I’ve done during quarantine is from my bedroom to the couch, Netflix’s Down To Earth With Zac Efron is at least providing a little window into life in more exciting, distant locales. (And I mean, Zac Efron is the tour guide, so there’s that.)

In episode four, Efron travels down to Sardinia, Italy, one of the world’s five Blue Zones. In these regions, people regularly live to be over 100 and in good health; Sardinia itself houses 10 times more centenarians per capita than the U.S. So Efron spent his trip gaining some insight into what exactly makes Sardinians so darn healthy.

The most shocking fact he learned was that, compared to how we eat here in the States, Sardinians have a low-protein diet, tending to cap their intake at 50 grams a day. To compare, the average American is supposed to eat 75 grams of

A new research report about leveraging your health to drive 401(k) contributions says you can boost your retirement savings to the tune of $100,000 or more simply by making better health choices.
