  • French Girls Are Way Ahead of Me With These 5 Fall Trends
    22 October 2020

    When I think about it, I'm not exactly sure why fall is my favorite season considering the weather barely changes in Southern California.Nevertheless, I still look forward to the season every year, not least because I love all the new cute, cozy clothes that hit the market. For me, comfort is the name of the game, but I'm also looking forward to getting out of my sweatpants and try out some fun trends.

    When it comes to inspiring outfits, they're certainly in no shortage in France. Parisian influencers I follow like Ellie from Slip Into Style and Leia Sfez always come through with the coolest interpretations of the biggest trends. Not only are they more experimental than I tend to be, but they're also ahead of me literally speaking since the weather in Paris cools down much sooner than L.A. So, without further ado, scroll down to see the

  • "My Skin Looked Like a Baby's": The 15 Skincare Tools That Will Reverse-Age You
    22 October 2020

    Mostskincare tools promise to do a whole lot. Need to zap zits? There's a tool for that. Sculpt sagging skin? There are a couple of devices for that, too. Reduce dark spots? Yes, a gadget can help. The technology is so advanced these days that there are so many options that claim to target the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Some are self-proclaimed better alternatives to in-office procedures like Botox injections.

    But I know you're probably wondering, Do they really work? Valid question, especially since a lot of these devices aren't exactly the cheapest. Well, first, no tool or beauty product can really give you brand-new skin entirely, but there are a lot of effective devices out there that can get you pretty dang close.

    To help you shop smarter (and not waste your money on something completely worthless), take a look at some highly rated gadgets and editor-favorite devices that have some pretty incredible results below.

    Full disclosure: Thanks to genetics, I have pretty good skin to start. But I decided to try this tool to give my skin a little more oomph since it was looking dull in quarantine. The microneedling tool exfoliates the skin, increasing cell turnover and stimulating collagen and elastin production. After using it for a week, my skin looked and felt like a baby's, meaning it felt smoother, plumper, and more glowy. Rolling a spiky thing all over your face can feel a little weird and uncomfortable at first, but I got used to it, and the results were pretty cool!

    Consider this one of the hardest-working multitasking devices. The kit comes with the Trinity Device and three attachments to tone the face and reduce wrinkles. There's an attachment for your face and neck, one for your lips and eyes, and another to target wrinkles. One Dermstore reviewer wrote, "I can't lie—it's a daily time commitment, and I'm not always perfect in my everyday use. However, I do see a difference in my skin when I do use it consistently. If you do get into the habit of consistent use, I think your skin will look amazing."

    This vibrating facial massager works to stimulate the skin to promote blood circulation, firmness, and elasticity. Use it all over your face, from your cheeks to forehead to around the eye area. One Amazon reviewer said, "This is incredible! My first day of using it, I eliminated a lot of my neck 'hang.' I am absolutely incredulous! It has definitely firmed up my face. I am absolutely thrilled I found this… and at this price!"

    This skin wand encourages cell turnover and slows the aging process. There are four different tips: a bent tube and a tongue tube to eliminate acne; a mushroom tube for the cheeks, forehead, and jawline; and a comb tube to stimulate hair follicles.

    Even though this price point is pretty steep, associate beauty editor Courtney Higgs says it really works: "This mask is life, and that's coming from someone who can't be bothered to use skincare tools most of the time. I've just been duped by one too many gizmos and gadgets and consider my time and my cash too valuable for those games." She was skeptical at first, but after using it for three minutes every day for a couple of months, she began to see some noteworthy results. The red- and blue-light device works to smooth and firm skin, fight acne-causing bacteria, and help reduce dark spots.

    You might be familiar with Foreo's popular facial brushes, but now, it's getting into the toning game. Reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck with this microcurrent massaging device. A Sephora reviewer wrote, "I just started using Bear a few days ago, and wow! I am completely in love with this product. I am new to microcurrent technology and was initially nervous because I have read reviews on different microcurrent devices, and this one by far exceeded my expectations. I love Foreo included the anti-shock technology. I felt so comfortable using this device knowing I did not have to worry about zapping myself. Most importantly, I am also starting to see improvement with the fine lines around my mouth, as they are already starting to fade."

    If you can't make it to your doctor's office to get a microdermabrasion treatment, this is your solution. The device leaves your skin looking fresh and glowy with weekly use. Not only does it have anti-aging benefits, but it can also help with acne and enlarged pores. A Sephora customer wrote, "I love this product. It does work, but it takes some getting used to. The first time I used it, I had some scratches from leaving it in one spot too long. But after I got the hang of it, it works pretty amazingly. Definitely smoothes the skin and helps with lightening brown spots and acne scars."

    Ziip's wireless device uses nanocurrents to stimulate the skin, encourage production of collagen and elastin, promote lymphatic drainage and circulation, and target acne-causing bacteria. The gadget comes with a gel to apply before use. Use it before you cleanse and do the other steps in your skincare routine.

    This tool has 24 massage stones that can energize and lift your skin. It's almost like getting a massaging facial at home, but you'll be saving a lot of money on treatments with this one. Use it on different areas of your face for 30 to 45 seconds.

    LightStim's device uses LED technology to treat wrinkles, smooth texture, even skin tone, and reduce puffy under-eye circles. It has a built-in three-minute timer, so you'll place it on the desired area of your skin, and it will beep when it's done so you can move onto the next spot. You can use it two to three times a week.

    Managing editor of branded content Caitie Schlisserman says this little tool does a whole lot: "It increases blood circulation, which increases elastin and collagen, and it also helps with lymphatic drainage. My face looks lifted after five minutes, both morning and night."

    When I first saw this device, I thought it was a handheld showerhead. It's actually a high-tech device that uses LED light therapy to get below the skin's surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves blood flow and circulation and encourages cell renewal. And because of its size, you can use it on larger areas and shorten your treatment time. One reviewer on Dermstore said, "This is, by far, the best investment in natural skincare I've ever bought! It takes time—really it takes months before you begin to see the results—but it is so worth it! I look at least five years younger since I started using it!"

    This microneedling pen has adjustable lengths (0.25 mm to two mm) and five different speed settings, so you can personalize it to your own specific skin needs. You can use it on your face and body, and even your scalp to stimulate hair growth. It's recommended to apply serum or cream after a treatment.

    This wand has four different modes, including hot and cold settings, so you can choose based on what type of treatment you need. The hot mode cleanses the skin, while the cool and massage mode decreases puffiness and firms.

    If you're concerned about fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area, this light therapy device can help. Just place the device over the eye area and let it work its magic for three minutes. A Sephora reviewer wrote, "I was skeptical about purchasing this considering the price, but I'm shocked to see that the '11 lines' between my eyes have diminished greatly. I also see a new fullness/plumpness around my eyes, especially my smile lines." Next up, These 8 Ladies Over 40 Just Shut Down Every Cliché I've Ever Heard About Aging

  • These Are the Best Sneakers for Wide Feet, According to a Podiatrist
    22 October 2020

    It's an age-old tale: You see a pair of shoes you absolutely love and insist on buying them, even though the fit isn't perfect, reasoning to yourself that you’ll be able to wear them in. Unfortunately, according to podiatrist Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, a Vionic Innovation Lab member, this shoe-shopping philosophy is an absolute no-no, especially when you’ve got a wider foot.

    “From the moment you try them on in the store, the shoes should fit comfortably and feel just right,” Sutera explains. “If they’re tight, try the next width up or a different style. Breaking shoes in damages feet in the process.” Luckily, finding sneakers that comfortably fit a wide foot isn’t that hard. According to Sutera, styles with adjustable straps and a more rounded or square-shaped toe box tend to better suit a wide foot. Many brands also allow shoppers to pick their preferred width (e.g., M for medium and W for wide).

    Another top tip for spotting the best sneakers for wide feet? Make sure the shoe width matches the width of your foot. “Put the shoe next to your foot to quickly see if it’s the correct shape,” Sutera says. “Shoes that don’t match your natural shape will be too tight and cause short-term—and possibly long-term—pain and potential problems.”

    Sutera notes that ingrown toenails, bunions, hammertoes, calluses, corns, pinched nerves, and bone spurs are some long-term effects of wearing footwear that doesn’t fit properly. She also listed Vionic, New Balance, and Saucony as three of the most trusted offerings. Speaking of which, see and shop our favorite trainers from each brand—plus a few others—below.

  • Beauty Editors Agree—No Skin Ritual Is Complete Without a Bottle From This Brand
    22 October 2020

    My fellow beauty editor Courtney Higgs and I probably spend 80% of our lives texting and Slacking each other about beauty products. (It's the nature of our jobs, but we also just happen to bebeauty-obsessed soul mates and get ridiculously squealy about amazing new finds.) We try plenty of products and brands that make our stomachs flutter with butterflies on a weekly cadence, but once in a while, we encounter a new beauty product that quite literally sends us over the edge. (Think frantic, all-caps text messages, an unhealthy number of emojis, and gushy follow-ups the next day on Slack just to make sure we're still as obsessed with the object of our affection as we were in our 10 p.m. states of delirium the night before.)

    Despite the roller-coaster ride of 2020, it's been, refreshingly, an amazing year for beauty, and the above saga seems to happen on an almost weekly basis. But a week or two ago, it reached a 2020 fever pitch following Klur's latest skincare launch: the Supreme Seed Delicate Purification Mask ($60) aka the brand's first new product since its collection debuted in 2019. I'd heard amazing things about Klur for months and months (Courtney has been a huge fan since day one), so the fresh, new launch felt like the perfect opportunity to review and celebrate the brand in its entirety. 

    Sustainably made in California and studded with tons of organic, high-quality botanicals, Klur describes itself as "eco-inclusive beauty" and reflects esthetician and founder Lesley Thornton's vision to create a brand epitomizing clean, ethical, and inclusive beauty for all. Let it be known Thornton didn't just slap together another ho-hum skincare brand that would be lost among the thousands. Instead, she honed, perfected, and curated a small yet beautifully balanced array of formulas prioritizing simplicity, usability, efficacy, and long-term results and topped off with a hard-to-miss dose of instant gratification. (Try any of Klur's stunning bottles, and you'll immediately know what we mean.) 

    "To me, Klur is more than just quality products and a conscious ethos," Thornton explains on the brand's website. "It's about a human connection. At its heart, there is a well-considered functional approach in both process and products. We are an independent, self-funded, woman-owned and operated company. We believe that sustainability not only means addressing the long-term impact on our ecosystem but that we must also make products that meet the demands of everyday life."

    Courtney and I have been busy test-driving the majority of Klur's products, and we've both forcefully experienced the above sentiments firsthand. So to welcome Klur's new masking arrival and to extend some well-deserved love to a brand that's truly setting the bar in today's skincare market, we're sharing and discussing all of our favorite Klur products below. Keep scrolling! Oh, and clear some real estate on your vanity—new neighbors are imminent. 

    Erin's take: I didn't know it was possible to be blown away by a cleanser (and I mean blown away) until I tried Gentle Matter for the first time last week. I'll get into more detail shortly, but let me start here: This cleanser is so delicious that after I rinsed and patted my skin dry with a towel, I thought to myself, "Well, this is it." Forget all of my other face products—this organic concoction of green tea, dandelion, and olive oil (and so much more) was all my skin needed to look like a clean, balanced, and surprisingly hydrated orb of glowing light. It's non-foaming, but it does have a light, satisfying lather that feels soothing and velvety-soft while you're working it into your skin. My complexion tends to be highly reactive, and even though certain ingredients like coconut milk have given me issues in the past, I haven't experienced any newfound bumps, pimples, or irritation since I began using this cleanser daily, morning and night. (This just goes to show you that the quality of ingredients and how they're composed within a formula makes a huge difference in the world of skincare.) Gentle Matter is on another level entirely compared to almost every other cleanser I've tried, and I highly recommend indulging—it's a skin treat worth splurging for.  Courtney's take: It wasn't until very recently that I started getting more particular about facial cleanser. For most of my life, I thought of it as a necessary evil that, by its very nature, was meant to strip my skin of everything luscious for the sake of purification. For this reason, and because the suds literally rinse down the drain within seconds, I couldn't be convinced to spend more than $10 or so on the stuff. It's cleansers like this one that finally made me believe that cleansers can be good for your skin. This one is soothing, gentle, and effective all at once, which I'd think was impossible if I hadn't experienced it for myself. It actually adds moisture and nutrients like green tea, dandelion, and olive oil into my skin instead of just pulling everything out and leaving me scrambling for heavy moisturizers to replace all that I've lost. I love it.

    Erin's take: I have to say it. I was initially terrified to try this mask. I did my research beforehand and noticed it included coconut oil and cocoa butter, two ingredients my acne-prone complexion, historically, has never been able to tolerate. Both cocoa and coconut are highly comedogenic and basically fertilize my face for a fresh crop of zits whenever they're stealthily lurking in skincare products I try. So you can imagine my surprise when I applied this delicious mask (it legit smells like a chocolate-vanilla swirl soft-serve ice cream cone, and you will want to eat it). And… Absolutely nothing bad happened. I've used Supreme Seed twice in the past week, and I have no new pimples. What I have noticed, however, is smooth, radiant, and supremely hydrated skin. Now, I think part of the reason my skin hasn't freaked is that I'm only wearing it a few times a week for about 10 to 15 minutes (I do think it would cause congestion for me if I was using it more often), but again, I think this just speaks to how delicately and thoughtfully Thornton composes her formulas. I also let my 73-year-old mom give it a test-drive, and she was left basically speechless by the smooth, even, and significantly brighter tone of her complexion. In all honesty, this is probably the best new mask of 2020.  Courtney's take: I was always under the impression that there are two kinds of face masks: clay masks and everything else. To me, clay is the stuff you reach for when you want to dry out a zit or otherwise suck out gunk, even if it means sitting through an uncomfortably tight and itchy treatment that may or may not be sucking out too much oil. This mask is like a hybrid, combining the detoxifying benefits of kaolin clay with a blend of panthenol, calendula, and cacao. As a result, it's not overly drying or uncomfortable to wear. It remains soft and pliable, even when dry, so removing it is also way easier than you'd expect from any sort of clay or mud. So far, I'm a fan of this, too!

    Courtney's take: I'm all for any serum that aims to aid in my skin's defense against environmental stressors. I do enough treating and use a good amount of super-active ingredients, but when it comes down to it, some of those practices can actually weaken my skin's ability to protect itself from the elements. (Skincare can be a little backward that way sometimes.) The first thing that struck me about this fluid was the color. It's not bleached clear or colored some fantastical hue to prove its potency. Instead, it looks like something you'd find in nature, which I love. It has tons of nourishing and protecting ingredients like squalane from olive, glycerin, vitamin C, and algae. I just love how it makes my skin feel.

    Erin's take: I just arrived in Tucson to visit my family, and regardless of how many times I've been here over the years, I always seem to forget just how hot and dry it is. Even if I guzzle water and apply five layers of lip balm before bed, I wake up looking like an extra from Holes, complete with dry, chapped lips and tight, flaky skin. So it truly speaks volumes when I say this lightweight hydrating serum has helped me get my moisturized, dewy skin back. Key ingredients like vitamins C, E, and B5 provide optimum nutrition to thirst-starved skin while ingredients like beta-glucan and aloe keep things plump and hydrated. I love that it's clear, lightweight, and easy to spread over my entire face (you literally only need one drop), and despite the fact that it absorbs almost instantly, it doesn't leave my skin wanting more. Most nights, I even end up skipping my nighttime moisturizer!

    Erin's take: Where to start? Even though Klur is still a comparably new brand, this body oil has already gained a cult celeb following. (You can watch Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gush about it here!) I've been very forthright in the past about not really being a big body-oil person. There is a time and a place, and while I love how glowy and hydrated they leave my skin, I hate how most formulas make my body feel like a syrup-drenched Slip 'N Slide. And you can absolutely forget it if I'm going to be crawling into bed or pulling on tight-fitting clothes soon after my application. This oil, however, is different. The scent is amazing and surprisingly complex for something as straightforward as a body oil, but the finish is really the star benefit for me. It absorbs quickly but not as quickly as a dry oil. Basically, you're getting the best of both worlds—the long-lasting dewy luster of an oil but a smooth-as-silk finish with zero stickiness or tack.  Courtney's take: I don't know who needs to hear this, but everyone needs to buy this oil. Like… right now. Click this link and make the purchase, sis. The first time I ever used it, my mind immediately jumped to the time that this bottle of oil would run dry, which I was sure would be in the very near future. I decided just then that I could never let that happen. I literally cannot be without this oil. It has the most beautiful scent, with notes of neroli, orange blossom, and spicy wildflowers jumping out first. It leaves my skin so soft and moisturized and absorbs beautifully, even into dry skin. It's one of those products that leaves you sniffing your own skin in wonder as it sets in.

    For anyone looking for a vitamin-spiked retinol complex, Stellar Restoration is going to be your game changer. In addition to the aforementioned vitamins (specifically A, C, and B), this little bottle of magic tag teams with bioactive botanicals and nutrients to tackle congested, dull, uneven, or just plain damaged skin. For your best and brightest results, Klur doesn't recommend applying the dose of three to four drops more than three nights per week. Top it off with your favorite moisturizer after it's had the chance to fully absorb, and make sure you're keeping up with your daily sunscreen application each and every day. 

    Dare we say this thoughtfully balanced serum rivals the biggest C and E heavy hitter in the market? (Ahem, the iconic SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, $166) Yes, yes we do. Artfully constructed, this potent blend of brightening vitamins C and E boasts other lush ingredients such as rosehip, aloe, and licorice to gift a stressed-out complexion with unparalleled protection and glow. Apply one to two pumps to clean, damp skin every other day (either morning or night) and make sure you give it ample time to absorb before layering your SPF or moisturizer on top. 

    One of this exfoliant's (many) beautiful perks is its versatility. Regardless of how you choose to use it, you'll reap a clean, polished, completely de-gunked finish without any of the harsh side effects so many scrubs out there incur. It features a delicate yet efficient blend of refined, botanically sourced grains (think brown rice powder, rosehip seed powder, and MSM), effortlessly suffering away buildup and spiking healthy cell turnover. Try mixing a small pinch with your cleanser (water based is best) to create a gentle exfoliating paste. Using a light touch, glide and work the mixture over your face before thoroughly rinsing off. Klur recommends reserving this treatment for once- or twice-weekly usage.

  • I'm 5'4" and Live in the South—These Are the 8 Fall Trends I Bought This Year
    22 October 2020

    Shop With WWW, our annual two-day shopping event, is here! Between now and 11:59 p.m. PT on October 22, you get to shop with exclusive discounts from our favorite brands and retailers. Be sure to visit our event page to browse all the incredible deals on offer. Happy shopping!

    I suppose it's not essential that you know my height and geographical location for me to share whichtrends I'm buying this season, but I'm all about context. Given my average (borderline petite) height and that I live in a climate that's around 60 degrees on average this time of year, I thought that my fall trend selects might be helpful to some of you. (Regardless, there are still some cute items to shop below.)

    Given my height, there are some trends I choose to pass on. It can be a tough call to make when something looks great on a 5'10" model, but I just have to remind myself that models and I don't always look good in the same things. But I'm not too worried about that and you shouldn't be either, because there are plenty of trends this season that do work for us petite girls. Keep scrolling to find out which ones I invested in this year.

    As a person that's on the shorter side, I love this sneaky trend. Lug-sole boots and loafers feel like flats but they add a couple of inches to my frame.

    Wearing: Totême Annecy Coat ($1100); Dôen Rune Top ($190); J Brand 1212 Runway Jeans ($230); Prada shoes

    Like several other trends on this list, this one doesn't have much to do with height. Everyone can wear a collared sweater, which has quickly become my favorite knitwear trend of the year.

    Wearing: Sayaka Davis New York Knit Polo ($366); Missoma Lucy Williams Gold Flat Curb Chain Necklace ($239)

    Skirts can be a little tricky for someone of my height, so I gravitate toward leg-elongating mini lengths. Luckily, the biggest skirt trend of the season is just that.

    Wearing: Who What Wear Cardigan ($35); Aritzia Olive Skirt ($88); Loewe Chelsea Boots ($650)

    Since it doesn't get that cold in North Carolina in the fall, blazers are my go-to jacket style. Just opt for an oversize one so that you can layer.

    Wearing: Veda Bowery Leather Blazer ($398)

    When the baggy jeans trend first came to be, I didn't think it would work for me, but I was wrong to hesitate. The trick is to just choose a pair with an inseam that's no longer than 29 inches if you're short like me.

    Wearing: Totême hat; Daily Ritual Teddy Bear Fleece Quarter Zip Jacket ($49); Madewell x Kule Relaxed Dadjeans ($148); Clergerie Gillef Sherpa Slippers ($695)

    Patchwork is another one of those anyone-can-wear-it trends, regardless of height. I've been throwing this jacket on to brighten up my neutral outfits.

    Wearing: Ciao Lucia Marco Patchwork Jacket ($506); Agolde jeans; Prada jacket; Prada bag and shoes

    This product is part of our Shop With WWW event! Make sure to enter the code TR20 at checkout to receive the discount.

    A cropped cardigan with high-waisted jeans is my go-to outfit formula. Without fail, it always makes me look taller (especially if I wear those sneaky chunky-sole shoes I was talking about before).

    Wearing: Zara cardigan

    This brand-new sweater trend is great in that you can go with a cropped or oversize style, depending on how you plan on wearing it. I'm tempted to invest in both.

  • Cambio ora 2020: quando spostare le lancette di un'ora
    22 October 2020

    Con l'immergerci nell'autunno torna anche l'ora solare e le lancette torneranno a spostarsi di 60 minuti.

    Ma quando dovremo spostare le lancette di un'ora? E sarà uno spostamento in avanti o indietro?

    Come sempre, l'ora solare prevede l'indietreggiare delle lancette di un'ora e questo avverrà alle 3 di notte tra il 24 e il 25 ottobre, quindi tra sabato e domenica. In forza del ritorno dell'ora solare, quindi, le giornate guadagneranno un'ora di sole in più la sera in cambio di un alba che arriverà un po' più tardi mentre nella notte tra sabato e domenica recupereremo un'ora di sonno.

    Sarà però l'ultima volta che sposteremo le lancette dell'orologio? Attualmente non si sa ancora se l'Italia vorrà tornare all'ora legale o se le diremo addio per sempre, per deciderlo dovremo attendere aprile, mese in cui tutti i paesi dell'Unione Europea decideranno, ciascuno per sé, se procedere o meno con l'abolizione dell'ora legale.
