“A mixture of ylangylang and vanilla essential oils.” Hair and makeup artist Tony Masciangelo, co-owner of Toronto’s Alcorn Salon, has been in the beauty business for two decades and travelled the world to work for Glamour, ELLE and Vanity Fair as well as on faces like Taylor Swift and Kim Cattrall. In this issue, he worked his magic on our fashion shoot, “Electric Avenue” (pg. 68). “I enjoyed playing with the idea of hair that defies reality yet still looks very real,” he says. Follow him on Instagram @thealcorn.
“A rosewater and vanilla cologne that’s rich, sexy and smoky.” Toronto-based editor and writer Gabrielle Johnson shops for work, play and therapy, but not necessarily in that order. For this issue she interviewed Cake Beauty’s Heather Reier for Beauty Crush (pg. 28). “It was like chatting with an old friend—one who’s incredibly smart, ambitious and motivated,” she says. “I left feeling energized and inspired.” Johnson (@msgabriellej) has also written for FASHION, Hello!, Toronto Life and The Toronto Star, and loves cups of tea, her toddler’s sense of humour and buying shoes in every available colour.
“I always have a rose and blackcurrant leaf candle burning on set.” Alvaro Goveia shot the sparkly holiday makeup looks in our beauty shoot, “That’s Rich” (pg. 53). “We had a day filled with sequins, sparkle and glitter, traces of which are still being found in the studio,” he says. The Toronto-based photographer, whose work has also appeared in FASHION, Chatelaine, Weddingbells, Cosmopolitan and Maclean’s, marked a career highlight last summer when he did a shoot atop a glacier in Whistler, B.C.

EASY TO PLEASE
Talk about decadent. Here's a snap of me and Canadian supermodel Daria Werbowy at Lancôme's 80th lunch fete. Check out that flower wall!
Since there is no hibernating when it comes to winter beauty, here are my tried-trusted-and-true survival products.
(left to right) Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair Balm, $29. Chapped lips are the bane of my beauty existence, and this balm helps me keep ’em in check. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, $41. My parched skin drinks up all the moisturizing benefits this overnight mask offers. Chanel Lamé Rouge Noir Top Coat, $31 (available at select beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart locations). Sure, this shimmery yet sheer top coat elevates any polish, but when applied to my bare nails, it instantly pulls my look together.
ON THE COVER
Unsurprisingly, it mostly has to do with food (the quality of ingredients more than the portion size). As a child, I remember requesting steak for breakfast on more than one occasion, only to be met with raised eyebrows from my parents. To those who know me or follow my Instagram feed, this admission probably comes as MY LATEST SPOILS no surprise—though I’m careful not to wear the self-indulgent label, as that implies no restraint. Lately, I’ve been exercising my indulge muscle in simpler ways. On my hour-long commute to work I devour thought-provoking, emotion-heavy Homemade black tea cupcakes podcasts instead of top 40 radio; with honey buttercream I enjoy meaningful social media time by applying the quality vs. quantity approach; and I’ve started dipping into my collection of someday beauty products (I’m looking at you, Chanel shower gel) I was saving for who knows what. After all, I do believe that fulllment can come from doing/ enjoying/experiencing things that you love and are passionate about. Call me a cheese ball, but it’s true! We at Glow are saying cheers to a season lled with quiet indulgences, Beautiful blooms instantly which is (in case you hadn’t guessed already) the theme of this issue. brighten my mood For some, I realize that reading this magazine from cover to cover is an indulgent act in its own right—so thank you. For others it may be something meaningful like charity work or a donation (this always provides me with immense joy). It could even be something as simple as a bubble bath, and that’s perfectly OK. During the busy holiday season, being mindful of the pleasurable things at your disposal can be the last box to check off on your to-do list. With that in mind, we’ve assembled some My latest binge-listen: stories you’ll hopefully relish as much as we do. Crybabies podcast Kicking off the indulgent theme is a thoughtful prole on Heather Reier, Canadian founder of the aptly named Cake Beauty, whose brilliant idea of bottling decadent beauty products paid off (page 28). Since you can’t talk about pampering without mentioning beauty products, we’ve got tons of festive beauty ideas in our By the Numbers feature (page 34) and in “That’s Rich” (page 53), as well as indulgences of the mind/body/health variety on page 79. There were many laugh-out-loud moments while we were producing this year’s gift guide, in which staffers share what they’d like to give and receive this holiday season. The super talented Joanna Kam, our very own associate art director, perfectly captured staffers’ personalities through caricatures. See for yourself on page 42. If there’s one story not to miss, it’s the head-nodding piece on handling holiday stress like a boss (page 88). Its main goal? To raise awareness around and support mental health, which, frankly, is a subject that could always use more attention. Here’s to a new year of stockpiling simple pleasures and taking care of you.

If there is an indulge gene, I’m clearly in possession of it. Always have been.
LETTER OF THE MONTH “Night Rider” really touched a nerve for me, because I too suffer from “bad sleep” and I know first hand the toll it takes on overall health and the natural beauty that comes from a good night’s sleep. I cannot blame raising young children or a challenging work schedule, I just can’t seem to get more than three hours of uninterrupted sleep. I loved Jacquelyn Francis’s statement about wanting to wake up feeling pretty and her solution—adopting a beauty routine that works for her. Thank you, Jacquelyn, for the awesome tips. Here’s to beautiful dreams. - Nicoletta, Markham, Ont. I love this magazine! Each page offers up some magical new insight. The tips and tricks—from the proper way of applying gel nail polish to the tools to help a home hair dye job turn out looking more professionally done to the right age-appropriate foundation and application method—are fantastic. We lead such busy and hectic lives, and leafing through these pages gives us pause to focus on ourselves for a beautiful moment. - Laura, Niagara on the Lake, Ont. I particularly liked the “score” for economical products and the “splurge” for more expensive items. It was a super idea to feature Trends as we change seasons and want to search for fall fashions, etc. Thanks! I will watch for your next edition. - Janet, Orleans, Ont. The Trend Alert thumbnails were a nifty touch in the most recent issue of Glow. They informed me about trends which I otherwise
would not have known about. Wearing pastels during autumn? Peach and melon eyeshadows and lipstick at this time of year? Interesting! -Janelle, Edmonton The Yukon is gorgeous, one of my favourite places on Earth, and after spending eight years living in the Territory, it made me really happy to see a photo editorial done there. Thank you for bringing my memories back to me and going off the beaten track for this shoot. - Andrea, Calgary I absolutely love Glow! I’m not a big fan of makeup, but I find so many useful tips on skincare and the best products and fragrances that I simply must have. I also love to travel, and your recent Glow Travels article on the Yukon left me completely inspired. I’m in the process of booking my trip for 2016. Your tips on where to explore and eat are a must-have! Thank you Glow! - Veronica, Ottawa
Tell us what you love about this issue of Glow, at letters@glow. ca, for your chance to win a StriVectin prize package worth $283.
Earlier this month, my daughter left for university. Wondering what to place in her first care package, I read Body Talk’s “Face Off” and filled the package with all the Fixes mentioned in the article. I then added my well-read copy of Glow, as the two of us always enjoyed reading it together. My daughter loved the package and Skyped me to enjoy October’s Glow again together. - Tami, Ottawa In your recent issue you featured an article entitled Beauty by the Numbers. The introduction stated, “Here’s how to put your best base forward at every age.” The article then provides skin strategies for each decade up to the 50s. Considering that the average life expectancy for women in Canada is 84, why did the article not address the later decades? Women aged 60 and up still want to look their best—they’re not dead yet! Just look at Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren and Sophia Loren, for example. - Barbara, Thornhill, Ont.

THREE HOLIDAY HAIR TIPS FROM CELEBRITY HAIRSTYLIST DANILO
If you know your hair will be getting a workout, apply a leave-in cream like Pantene Pro-V Dry Defy Velvet Crème Infusion before you reach for the blow-dryer, advises Danilo, global ambassador for Pantene Pro-V. Want to avoid going overboard with product? “Apply it when your hair is damp— it’s going to break it up a little and move it around since there’s water in there.”

Ask any woman on the street what her desert island must-have is and chances are she’ll say mascara. Lucky for us, mascaras are the Madonna of beauty products, constantly reinventing themselves. Whether you’re after a lush fringe or a super curl, here are three new wands you won’t want to leave the house without.
For über-length: Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara, $14
For a full, falsie-worthy flutter: L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Superstar Mascara, $17
For the ultimate curl: Rimmel London 24HR Super Curler Mascara, $10
While this multi-tasking tube checks off a laundry list of wants (including definition and lift), it’s the length for days it delivers that we can’t get enough of.
This double-ended wand has a thickening primer on one end and a lengthening topcoat on the other. The results mimic the fanned-out effect you get from individual false lashes.
This may cause a breakup with your eyelash curler. With a curved brush and a curlinducing formula that was 10 years in the making, this wand coats every single lash for an eye-framing fringe.
MEET YOUR MATCH
Having a hand cream at the ready tops our list of musthaves once winter rolls in. These two hydrating tubes will have you looking for every excuse to reapply. Marc Anthony Moisturizing Shea Butter & Marula Oil Deep Moisture Hand Cream, $7; Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream, $19 (available at murale.ca).

BAKER’S DELIGHT: Reier began her sweet beauty concoctions in her kitchen before taking them out into the real world.
SOMETIMES IT’S HARD to remember what the world was like before Instagram, before the Hermès Apple watch, before artisanal coffee shops cropped up on every corner and kale became cool enough to warrant its own must-have sweatshirt. But that was the world—way back in 2003—into which Cake Beauty, a Canadian line of adorably packaged beauty products with natural ingredients, was born. It hardly seems groundbreaking now, accustomed as we are to studying labels like we’ll be tested later and stocking our fridges with fresh veggies from organic produce-box subscriptions, but 12 years ago, the concept was a revelation. “To me, it was a no-brainer in the marketplace,” says Heather Reier, Cake’s founder and CEO, over loose-leaf green tea at Boxcar Social, a new (you guessed it) artisanal coffee shop near her east Toronto ofce. At 41, Reier is a tall, blonde, model-like mother of two young boys. Her glowing skin is accentuated with minimal makeup; she’s basically a living, breathing ad for her brand. “The whole idea of great body products that had natural ingredients, that had a playful feel, and that all the magazines and celebrities loved was important to me, and nothing existed then,” she says. Reier was working in retail operations for Roots Canada at the time, sitting a mere 20 feet away from the ofce of its co-founder, Michael Budman (“the epitome of Canadian entrepreneurship”), and apparently his spirit was contagious. Taking matters—or, more specically, shea butter and coconut oil—into her own hands, she learned how to make lotion with knowledge gleaned from books 28 GLOW WINTER 2016
(actual books!) and the web and began whipping up Cake Beauty prototypes in her own kitchen. Like many other wish-I’d-thoughtof-that genius ideas, Reier took an everyday product and gured out how to make it sexy and covetable. “I would go to the farmers’ market all the time, buy a big Mason jar of shea butter and slather it on,” she says. “It smelled horrendous and [it was] packaged horribly, but there was something decadent about it that I loved.” The natural-beauty market existed in isolation at the time, says Reier. “It was still really attached to a super-kitschy feel, a farmers’ market sensibility: ‘I’m a natural product and I’m beige, and I do great things and I smell like hemp,’” she says, while luxury beauty companies shied away from using natural ingredients. “I bridged the two ideas.” With her strong business background (she managed a national account for a chain of department-store hair salons straight out of university) and marketing savvy, Reier understood the need for a real hook. “I wanted Cake to live beside brands owned by P&G. I had to come up with a strategy that was going to get me out there and get some attention without the money,” she says. “The celebrity aspect was important. We were at the height of a very specic celebrity culture. At the time, it wasn’t as saturated as it is today. If someone really loved a product, it made a huge difference, and people listened to that.” Reier reached out to a number of celebs, including Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, Debra Messing and Rihanna, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. “It validated what I was doing,” she says.

â€œ[Celebrities] get so many things sent to them, so to get feedback like, â€˜Wow, this is my favourite product, I love it,â€™ mattered.â€? Imagine trying to do that now, when even bloggersâ€”never mind Hollywood starsâ€”get paid mega-bucks for a single Insta-endorsement. Reier spent a few years carving out a niche, supplying body lotions and hand creams to independent boutiques and online retailers which would quickly sell out of the celeb-approved goods. â€œMy story is very different from most in this industry,â€? she says. â€œI started in the kitchen with, â€˜Hi, Iâ€™ve got a lotion, do you want to buy it?â€™ I was very grassroots for a long time. Today, you couldnâ€™t start a brand that way. Itâ€™s too competitive. You need to get on the scene quickly.â€? But it was that indie vibe that made Cake a best-selling year alone and eventually propelling it to international success. Today, the line is carried in 2,500 Canadian stores (like Murale) and roughly 4,500 worldwide, with dry shampoos like Satin Sugar and Rush ! Never one to rest on her laurelsâ€”â€œI feel like the minute you take your foot off the gas to pat yourself on the back is the moment you lose that hunger,â€? she saysâ€”Reier set her sights on supermarket beauty, launching Delectable in 2012. The ultra-affordable collection of hair and body products was spawned from an economic downturn and shifting consumer buying habits. â€œPeople were more sensitive to price, but the expectation never changed. It was like, â€˜I want a product for $12, but I want it to be just as good as my $24 product,â€™â€? she says. â€œIt was a gut feeling.â€? Delectable was an instant hit, and is now stocked at major retailers like Shoppers Drug Mart. So whatâ€™s next for the forward-looking CEO? Skincare, for one our bathroom cabinets with Cake Beauty face creams if Reier has her way, while Delectable will expand into the lifestyle category with baby products and hand soaps. Considering her impeccable business timing, Reier seems to have a crystal ball tucked in her back pocket, one she might eventually use to reinvent the wheel once again. When asked if sheâ€™ll continue on â€œLike until Iâ€™m in the old-age home? No. I have a lot of interests,â€? she says. And though her demeanour is serene as she sips the last of her tea, itâ€™s clear that Reierâ€™s brain is churning out new ideas a mile a minuteâ€”and that Cake and Delectable are just the beginning.

Once the temperature drops, the struggle to keep hair smooth is real. Shoppers Drug Mart’s Pierce Rees shows us how to kick static-prone hair to the curb. BY EMILY MACCULLOCH

The right brush is everything. In the battle of the brushes, boar wins. Its bristles carry oil from the scalp to the ends of the hair, which means smoother, more conditioned locks.
Wash hair with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, then apply a volumizing mousse on towel-dried strands, beginning at the roots.
It’s a material world. “[To avoid] breakage, wear a cotton hat, not wool,” says Rees. Wool creates friction on the head, which can cause hair to split (cue yaways).
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo, $16
Blow-dry hair using a round boar bristle brush. To pump up the volume and ensure your locks stay smooth, lift hair up and away from the scalp with your brush while drying.
Dry shampoo solves all problems. If you’re suffering from limp locks, Rees recommends ipping your head upside down and spraying your roots. “It won’t frizz out the ends, and will give volume.” Don’t be afraid of a good chop. “Regular haircuts [help prevent] split ends and breakage, which are the biggest causes of frizz,” says Rees. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum, $8 32 GLOW WINTER 2016
Bounce Dryer Sheets, $10 (for 120 sheets)
Static sheets aren’t just for the dryer. The solution to hat hair: “Rub the sheet inside your hat before putting it on your head, or rub the sheet on your hands, then run your hands over your hair.”
Once hair is dry, squeeze two or three drops of shine serum into your hands and run your fingers through strands to tame any static.

BEAUTY BY THE NUMBERS
Whether you’re the hostess or on the guest list, these red carpet-worthy beauty looks are guaranteed to win you compliments. BY MEGAN KIRKWOOD FESTIVE MAKEUP—METALLIC highlighters, red lipsticks and sparkly, smoky shadows—always seems like
a total no-brainer until you crack open one of those gorgeous palettes and realize you have no idea what to do next. Skip the guesswork this season (there’s already enough of that at this time of year) and follow these easy steps for a knock-em-dead look that will take that trusty little lace number to the next level come cocktail hour.
TRY THIS: Monochromatic makeup MAKE IT HAPPEN: Soft, all-over colour is the perfect complement to an already plump complexion (if you’ve got it, aunt it). “Go for a monochromatic look and soft denition everywhere—because everything is already dened and plump, it’s really going to let your face speak for itself,” says Maxime Poulin, international makeup artist for Guerlain. Since it’s all about skin, prep with a good moisturizer and an essential oils-infused foundation to boost your natural glow. Your secret weapon: a cream-based blush or multipurpose colour applied with your ngers. Pick a rosy shade if you’re on the fair side, or peachy hues with gold undertones if you have a warmer skin tone. You can really diffuse the colour in a large area on your cheeks for a sexy, ushed appearance, which will enhance the volume in your face, explains Poulin. Next, place the colour directly onto your browbones, leaving the skin on your eyelids and just under your brows bare. PAIR IT: Use your ngers to dab the same creamy colour onto your lips. Finish off with a highlighter, either on your bare eyelids or on the top of your cheekbones, to make them pop. Skip ultra-shimmery nishes, which can easily look over-the-top. Less iridescence means you can always add more shimmer later, but you can’t always take it away, says Rachel Goodwin, an L.A.-based makeup artist who counts Emma Stone and January Jones as regular clients.
TRY THIS: Graphic liner MAKE IT HAPPEN: Ditch the heavy, smoky shadow—which can be the equivalent of I-haven’t-slept-in-days—in favour of bold liner. “[This look] can be very glamorous if you wear it with a lip, or played down if you wear it alone. It’s versatile and looks good on all eye shapes,” says Goodwin. Ace the application by using a creamy formula (it’s the most forgiving) with a stiff, angled eyeliner brush, or a pointed kajal-style pencil. Poulin recommends matching the thickness of your liner with the natural attributes of your face: Full lips, cheeks and brows can withstand heavily lined eyes, while more petite features stand out better with thinly drawn lines. If you fancy a cat eye, create the upturned ick by lining up with the angle of your cheekbone and following your bottom lash line as a foolproof guide to a natural-looking slant. Want to avoid black? Navy and green are both options, says Goodwin, as long as you keep the shape clean and elegant. PAIR IT: Match your dramatic gaze with a soft, radiant lip and cheek in pink or coral so the nal look reads modern, not vintage. “Since the liner is only adding denition to your lash line, it’s also important to frame your eyes by lling in your brows to add balance,” says Poulin.

BEAUTY BY THE NUMBERS
TRY THIS: Bright, bold lips MAKE IT HAPPEN: A bold lipstick makes as much of a style statement as an LBD. “Strongly [coloured lips] will brighten and lift your entire face,” says Poulin, who suggests pairing them with bold brows to help atter and dene your face shape. Choose a smooth texture to prevent the attening effect that mattenish lipsticks can have. Start with a primer to ll in any ne lines on and around your mouth and prevent your colour from bleeding. If you have a less pronounced lip shape, ll it in with a waterproof lip pencil in nude or a matching shade, which will also help your colour fade more evenly throughout the night, says Goodwin. Dab the liner softly with your nger to get a slightly blurred effect instead of a “stamped on” lip look, which can look too unnatural. Then apply your lipstick, either from the bullet or with a brush, blot with a tissue and reapply. “A hint of gloss in the centre captures the light and gives the illusion of a fuller lip, especially in photos,” says Goodwin. PAIR IT: Use a deep chocolate eye pencil applied as close to the base of your lash line as possible. If you have black hair, go ahead and use a jet-coloured pencil. “If there’s a bit of red in your brown, it can make your eyes look tired, so choose a nice dark, ashy brown,” suggests Poulin.
TRY THIS: Ultra-highlighted skin MAKE IT HAPPEN: Add dimension and help your skin reect light by swapping opaque colours for softer, subtler hues. Highlighting the planes of your face has a lifting effect, explains Poulin. Look for sheer highlighter shades in the rose gold and champagne family for a halo-like appearance. Soft, ne pigments will add warmth to your overall colour, which becomes greyer as you age, he says. Prime skin with a formula that will hydrate and colour correct, making the nal look appear fresher. Apply the highlighter between your brows, up to the centre of your forehead and down to the bridge of your nose. This really works to disguise frown lines and lift your whole face, says Poulin. Avoid placing it along your browbone, or on the lower part of your nose. Finish with a rosy blush. “In your 50s, cream formulations are your friend,” says Goodwin. “Dab it on the apples of your cheeks with your ngers and blend it in to give a beautiful life to your skin and make you look awake and fresh.” PAIR IT: Skip the heavy eyeliner, but top up mascara and add a few individual lashes to help disguise thinning hairs. Layer the most on the outer corner of your eye to make your lashes appear thicker and fuller, says Poulin.

ASK A BEAUTY EXPERT
Q: What’s the best way to remove my heavy makeup? A: Start with a makeup remover that works on all skin types like Bioderma Sensibio H20 Makeup Removing Micelle Solution ($27 for 500 ml), says Lysa Estay, a beautyBOUTIQUE manager at Shoppers Drug Mart in Toronto. Once you’ve taken off your makeup, lather up with an extra-strength cleanser like Clarins ExtraComfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream, $44, which will whisk away any remaining dirt and oil from the skin. 36 GLOW WINTER 2016

BEAUTY CONFESSION what gives? Even though we tend to think of acne as something that checks out for good once you hit legal drinking age, it’s actually quite common in adult women: one in ve between the ages of 25 and 45 suffers from the condition. In many cases, our hormones are the culprits (a spike in testosterone before menstruation kicks our oil glands into overdrive, resulting in clogged pores and, you guessed it, pimples). “The location of the acne usually suggests that it’s a hormonal problem,” explains Dr. Ben Barankin, medical director and founder of the Toronto Dermatology Centre and spokesperson for the Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada, over the phone. They crop up in the same telltale areas, like the lower jawline and neck. I nod vehemently (he can’t see me, but I can’t help myself). This is exactly what I’m experiencing: the super-attractive “acne goatee,” as my friend Emily calls it. “Another feature of hormonal acne is that it ares up consistently at the same time—before your period,” Barankin continues. I keep nodding. My pimples predictably appear along with other PMS symptoms like bloating and chocolate cravings. The real kicker is that as I near my mid-30s, I’m also noticing early signs of aging like ne lines and sunspots. This is all the more reason to get my acne under control, insists Barankin. “Inammatory acne breaks down your collagen further, which is why you get divots and scars, but also wrinkles.” If that isn’t a call to arms, I don’t know what is. I heed his advice and beef up my at-home arsenal with some heavy-duty products (FYI: glycolic acid, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are a triple threat when it comes to zit-zapping). I incorporate a new toner, NeoStrata’s Acne Clear Clarifying Solution, into my daily routine, and after several uses my skin looks smoother and my red spots less angry, thanks to a one-two punch from glycolic acid and salicylic acid. I feel like I sort of have things under control … until a huge pimple emerges on the left side of my face. I wish I were exaggerating for the sake of a good story, but I’m not. My loved ones assure me “it’s not that noticeable,” but their widened pupils tell a different story. It’s time to call in the Terminator Acne Spot Treatment (featuring 5 per cent benzoyl peroxide) by the encouragingly named AcneFree. Twenty-four hours later, my not-solittle friend is swiftly retreating: Hasta la vista, pimple! I start mulling over something else Barankin said: “Don’t mess with success. If you’ve done well with [a product] in the past, there’s a higher chance you’ll do well with it again.” When I was a teenager, Oxy’s medicated acne pads were my go-to, and as luck would have it, they’re available with a gentler formula and come in sophisticated black packaging (a far cry from the bright turquoise and pink I remember). It turns out the pre-soaked, salicylic-acid-laden pads still do the trick. Maybe it’s time I embraced the ’90s again after all.
What happens when you’re in your 30s but your skin is staging a teenage rebellion? Nicole Keen tackles the problem one pimple at a time. DON’T GET ME wrong. I loved the ’90s as much as the next girl, and seeing brown lipstick (RIP Maybelline New York Toasted Almond) and oral babydoll dresses stage a comeback denitely makes me nostalgic, but I’m more than happy to leave these all-toofamiliar trends to the next generation. You see, I’m just not willing to rock overalls and plastic tattoo chokers a second time around. My personal style has evolved since my teen years. My skin? Not so much. Unfortunately, my acne also received the memo about a retro revival because, at 34, I’m struggling with the same skin issues I faced in 1995. Like many teenagers, I battled with breakouts (there are some pictures of myself—with a bumpy forehead and inamed cheeks—I’d like to toss on a bonre), but I thought I’d left all of that behind along with my oversized annel shirts. I realize now that the clear skin I enjoyed throughout my 20s and early 30s was probably a pleasant side effect of the birth control pill. Since quitting the Pill for health reasons a few years ago, all hell has broken loose—on my face. So

HOLIDAY WITH�MANSCAPING�AND�MAN�BUNS now part of our vocabulary, one thing is clear: Men are looking at grooming in a whole new light. And as their interest in it grows, so does their interest in grooming gadgets. Philips has elevated the shaving and hair removal game, and oﬀers gi�-worthy options for every guy on your list, whether it’s a bearded bf who likes his mirror time, or a discerning dad who prefers the path of least resistance when it comes to grooming.
DOUBLE DUTY Just like smartphones and apps, we expect our beauty products and grooming tools to make our lives easier and adapt to whatever situation we’re in. The Philips AquaTouch Shaver o�ers versatility in the palm of his hand. Its AquaTec Seal means it can be used wet or dry, and if he has sensitive skin, he can use shaving gel or foam for extra comfort and minimal irritation. So, whether he prefers to shave in the shower or does his best work on the go, he gets killer results no matter what.
MULTIPLE CHOICE Studies say women are better multitaskers. We agree, but Philips Multigroom Series 5000 arms men with a collection of all-terrain shave and trim tools that just may level the playing field—at least in the grooming department. With 18 length setting options (including Turbo, for the follically blessed), guys have a versatile 8-piece kit (including a nose trimmer attachment) that allows them to do everything from creating a 3-day beard to targeting unwanted hair below the neck.
SMOOTH FINISH Tough exterior or not, men like a smooth shave. The Philips Shaver Series 7000 delivers precision without the irritation. Blades float across skin, thanks to a trio of comfort rings that keep things gliding along smoothly. And, while its adaptable heads hug all the right curves (targeting even the stubbiest stubble), that’s not the only flexible feature: AquaTec technology allows for shaving in the shower or on dry land, and an attachable trimmer can do moustache and sideburn touchups on the fly.
EASY DOES IT Even if we’ve spent a lot of time getting ready, we want it to look like it took us five minutes tops. Leading man stubble or a well-groomed beard should look e�ortless, too. And maintaining the look should be just as easy. The Philips Beardtrimmer Series 3000 makes it a cinch with ergonomic design for an easy grip, and settings that let him lock in his ideal style depending on the look he wants. Meanwhile, barbershop-sharp titanium blades o�er cuttingedge results without irritation thanks to rounded blade tips and combs.

FOR MY DAUGHTER’S TEACHER Truthfully, I can’t thank my daughter’s teacher enough (she’s surrounded by four-year-olds all day), but this Quo cosmetic set will certainly help. Who can resist the nostalgiainduced excitement of opening a holiday cracker? And with longer-lasting treasures like berry-toned lipglosses and neutral eyeshadows, she’ll want to keep all four for herself. FOR MY HUSBAND By association, my hubby is a fragrance end. He’s picky, and will surely love the fresh and smoky qualities of this new Dior men’s eau. It has a burst of freshness from Calabrian bergamot and settles into a sexy tobacco-laced scent with notes of lavender (my fave!) and geranium. It’s so versatile that he can wear it with a suit or jeans. That is, when I’m not stealing a spritz for myself. FOR MYSELF Beauty products are great and all, but candles are what really do it for me. I collect them and consider them a decor staple (right next to my stack of coffee-table books). The luxe factor of this Nest 3-wick candle ambience maker is twofold: The glass jar is impossibly chic (hello future home of my makeup brushes), and the smoky scent, thanks to oud wood and frankincense, is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Burning it is like being transported to the most glam campre ever.

FOR MY DOG WALKER What can you get the person you entrust to look after your most prized possession? My dog Gertrude is my sidekick and the light of my life, and it takes a kind soul to put up with my demands (Gert only gets the best!) and her stubborn nature (she’s a bulldog, after all). My dog walker is so busy looking after little critters that she doesn’t get much time to treat herself. This stylish oral scent by Michael Kors will let her indulge a little. FOR MY GRANDMOTHER My g-ma is a total babe with impeccable taste. At 87, she always takes time in the morning for her beauty rituals. Every time I see her, she’s sporting lush silver waves and subtly highlighted eyes. She’s never without a touch of champagne shadow to brighten up her lids, and Chanel’s next-level eyeshadow palette would add a dash of decadence to her a.m. primping. FOR MYSELF Nars has produced some of my all-time favourite collections, and this year it paired up with photographer Steven Klein. The collection’s pièce de résistance is this cool-girl cheek palette. It contains four totally wearable hues in one killer case.
Philosophy Vanilla Bean Nutmeg Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath, $21
FOR MY NEIGHBOUR I’ve known her since childhood, and she often shares homemade treats around the holidays. This year I’ll return the favour—without slaving over the oven—by gifting her with this mouth-watering vanilla bean nutmeg concoction by Philosophy. Bonus: the bottle features a tasty recipe, so she’ll have plenty of inspiration for next year’s baking session. FOR MY MOM-IN-LAW She always has an arrangement of fresh cut owers in the house, so Lancôme’s new La Vie Est Belle Intense perfume, with feminine notes of iris pallida and orange blossom, is a natural addition to her dressing table. (It doesn’t hurt that the ladylike lavender glass bottle is so darn pretty.) FOR MYSELF Considering polka dots are my jam, I knew this quirky tin packed with Benet products had to be mine as soon as I laid eyes on it. I’m already a fan of Benetint (who doesn’t love a good lip-meets-cheek tint?) and Fakeup concealer, and I can’t wait to try out the primer and mascara that are also included.

FOR MY CO-WORKER What do you get a person who works at a beauty magazine? Something that has Valentino Uomo both form and function. Urban Decay’s Vice4 Palette ts the bill. From its stunning case inspired Eau de Toilette, by broken glass to the 20 beautiful shades, including deep jewel tones and easy neutrals, it’s sure $75 for 50 ml to please even the biggest beauty buff. FOR MY BOYFRIEND My boyfriend’s a tad obsessed with his skincare regimen (as in we’ve spent many Sundays sitting on the sofa watching TV neck-deep in a mud mask). Foreo Luna for Men practically screams his name. This nifty device’s vibrating soft silicone brush helps deep clean your skin, while prepping it for a closer shave. Since he’s design-inclined, I’m also sure the slick black silhouette will be appreciated. FOR MYSELF Full disclosure: I’m a scent junkie. Rows upon rows of bottles line the dresser in my bedroom, like soldiers awaiting duty. Don’t get me wrong, I am deeply discerning about any new recruits. Boss The Scent is absolutely up for the job.

GLOW PROMOTION Emily MacCulloch, Glow’s Assistant Beauty and Fashion Editor The holiday season is the perfect excuse to pull out all the stops and show off your best in beauty. I like to become my own personal glam squad, trying out new looks using my favourite go-to products. It’s time to pop some bubbly and throw on your fave playlist (Beyoncé, anyone?). Here’s my step-by-step guide to getting gorgeous.
PREP + PRIME
AT FIRST BLUSH
3 4 5 6 7 8
No matter how much time you spend getting ready, it will all be for naught without the proper prep steps. Enter Smashbox Primer Water. I always give myself a spritz post-moisturizer and after makeup to help my foundation go the distance.
Blush is one of my desert island items (seriously, you’ll never spot me without it)! To get a lit-from-within-glow, use your ngers to swirl a cream formula like Lise Watier Blush Fondant Supreme in Natural onto the apples of your cheeks.
Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong
Lise Watier Blush Fondant Supreme in Natural
No soiree is complete without a heavy dose of sparkle. I like to buff a champagne shadow like Clinique All About Shadow Singles in French Vanilla over my lids and up to my browbones to add dimension and prep my eyes for liner.
LINER NOTES A bold cat eye is my go-to if I’m having a big night out. I always reach for a smudge-free liquid that promises to stay put like Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. Its marker-like tip helps the quick-dry formula glide on easily.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
LASH OUT A full, uttery fringe is always a good idea. To nish off my eyes, I curl my lashes then load up with a few coats of a volume-boosting formula like Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-À-Porter Mascara.
BROW BOOSTER The bold arch trend is here to stay. A long-wearing gel like Benet Cosmetics Gimme Brow is a must-have for perfectly sculpted brows. Simply comb through and mould hairs into shape.

PUCKER UP I’ve been really into the bold fuchsias and reds of this year’s fall season. Bourjois Paris Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong is one of my faves since it sets without budging so I can eat, drink and be merry without touch-ups.
FINISHING TOUCH A few spritzes from a festive scent sets my mood for the evening. I like a fruity oral blend with sweet notes like Ari by Ariana Grande Eau de Parfum that’s girly but still has edge.

Pop star and ponytail aficionado Ariana Grande gives us a glimpse into her sugary-sweet life with the launch of her debut scent, Ari. BY EMILY MACCULLOCH EVEN THOUGH 22-year-old Ariana Grande has legions of fans (called Arianators, FYI), a smash sophomore album and a successful acting career that includes Nickelodeon’s Victorious and a guest-starring role on the new TV show Scream Queens, the pint-sized singer insists she’s still just a down-toearth girl from Boca Raton, Florida. She also doesn’t take herself too seriously (just Google her impersonations on Jimmy Fallon), which makes us like her even more. And now the cat eye- and sky-high-ponytail-wearing singer is joining the ranks of pop royalty with the launch of Ari by Ariana Grande. From the blush-hued glass, complete with a uffy white pompom, to the oral fruity gourmand, the fragrance is Grande to a T. The singing sensation gives us an all-access pass into how she’s connecting with her fans and why her new scent is hitting all the right notes.
ARI BY ARIANA GRANDE EAU DE PARFUM, $58 for 50 ml, is exactly what you’d imagine the singer smelling like IRL. A blend of raspberry, vanilla orchid and musk with a touch of marshmallow, it’s sweet and spunky just like her.
FAN-GIRLING TO THE FULLEST “Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe are my first and foremost beauty icons. They really found their niche and had such classic looks that they stuck with for their whole careers. They weren’t afraid to wear what they loved and be themselves, and they stood for such different things. I also love Madonna because she switches it up all the time. There isn’t a look she hasn’t done, yet you still know it’s Madonna. She has celebrated so many kinds of beauty, done so many different looks and changes it up all the time, and I think that’s beautiful too.”

THE SMELL OF SUCCESS “I’ve been a huge fragrance fan my whole life. I always carried multiple [scents] in my purse, kept them in my locker at school and in my backpack. I was really intimidated [to launch my own] because I wanted to make sure it was perfect. I think we made something perfect, and I’m very, very happy with it.”
WAYBACK PLAYBACK “I wanted the bottle to be old school and look retro and mod, like something you’d see on Audrey
Hepburn’s wardrobe. I [pictured] it on her dresser while she was getting ready and doing her hair and makeup.”

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE “My fragrance is tied to a campaign called ‘Be You’ (#beyou). Because it’s called Ari by Ariana Grande, it’s like a little part of me for my fans. What I love about the campaign is that it’s telling my fans that they can be their own kind of beautiful and that’s more than enough. There’s such a weird thing in society where we hold men and women, more so women, to such high standards in beauty and body and trends, but none of that should really matter. We should celebrate individuality, and that’s what the campaignn is all about.” about.
PERFORMING FOR HER ARIANATORS “It’s been such a blessing to travel the world, perform for my fans and see their faces every day. Just seeing them in the audience and the funny signs that they hold up— they’re so cute.”

THAT'S LUXE LACQUERED LIPS, EMBELLISHED LIDS AND GOLDDUSTED SKIN—THESE HOLIDAY BEAUTY LOOKS LET YOU INDULGE IN DECADENT BEHAVIOUR, GUILT-FREE. BY MISHAL CAZMI PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALVARO GOVEIA
PRODUCT PHOTOS: CARLO MENDOZA
Nothing turns heads quite like dark lips, as proven by the fall runway’s moodiest pouts (see Emanuel Ungaro). Give red a rest by swiping on a deep purple lipgloss and kick it up a notch by dabbing a metallic eyeshadow on top. Let your lips do the talking and keep your overall look low-key—a soft bronze cream eyeshadow sans mascara will do the trick.

BLING IT ON
The sequined eyes at Temperley London had us seeing stars. If you want less glitz and more glamour, place a few sequins on the outer corners of your eyes or in a single row on your upper lash line (think of it as an OTT liner). Add a thin layer of clear lipgloss where you’d like to place them and use tweezers to gently stick them on. Dial up the glow factor with a luminous foundation and an illuminator.

INTO THE GLOSS
This isn’t your mother’s smoky eye. The opulent take on the classic look uses three metallic shades in navy blue, burnt orange and cranberry red. Create your base with a black kohl liner, filling it in and diffusing the shade. Liner on the waterline and some mascara will give it smokiness and depth while gloss will add dimension.

The good news is that past research has shown it’s good for your heart, but it may also be good for your brain, according to a brand new study in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.

When a cold strikes, we’d rather take #fromwhereilie Instas in bed than work or hit the party circuit. But have to adult (yes, adulting is a verb). Makeup artist Vanessa Jarman shares her tips on how to look your best with a cold.
YOUR NAILS LONGER STRONGER HEALTHIER ! Unique
1. Splash a tired face with cold water, then cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize. “It freshens the skin and the psyche,” Jarman says. For pale skin, she uses a soft blush and a bright peachy lipstick. A dark lip makes you look sallow, she warns. To combat flushed skin, she lightly applies foundation and makes use of the redness as a natural blush. 2. “You can tell if someone’s sick by their eyes,” she says. For red peepers, she uses Visine. “Then, I’ll line the waterline with a beige eyeliner.” Don’t forget waterproof mascara! Try: Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in In The Nude, $9, with Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash Waterproof Mascara, $11.
3. Wiping your nose can mess up foundation and cause skin to flake. “Blow your nose, then use HydraSense,” says Jarman, speaking on behalf of the company. “Do this before you put on makeup so the nasal cavities are moisturized and cleared of extra mucous.” Jarman stocks travel-size sprays in her makeup kit. Try: HydraSense Daily Nasal Care Spray, 100 ml, $17.
The Ecrinal Nail Strengthener with Provitamin B5 and patented Silk Lipesters quickly penetrates the nail keratin enhancing its growth and its resistance. Totally invisible, it can also be used over nail polish.

I’m hungover. What can I take to feel better?
THE PHARMACIST SAYS: “Treat a hangover like you would any other ailment: Consider the symptoms. If your stomach isn’t upset and you can take ibuprofen, it may help with a headache. Acetaminophen shouldn’t be taken with alcohol because it can put stress on the liver. To recoup electrolytes lost through dehydration—alcohol is a diuretic—drink a sports drink. To combat red eyes, try moisturizing eye drops. And, of course, let yourself rest for the day. Next time, pace yourself and have a glass of water between drinks.” —Maria Nenadovich, Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist-owner in Toronto
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING Want to pay it forward? Let Vaseline make a donation for you. In partnership with Direct Relief, a non-profit that helps in emergency situations and works to improve the health of poor populations, Unilever will donate Vaseline petroleum jelly when you visit vaseline.ca/en/thevaselinehealingproject. That helps a lot, say dermatologists Dr. Grace Bandow, a Bristol, R.I.-based doctor, and Dr. Samer Jaber, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. In 2015, they went to Jordan as part of the Vaseline Healing Project. “People need shelter and food and water,” says Jaber, “but skincare is important in these situations. We saw 1,200 patients in one week.” Bandow adds: “We saw a lot of people suffering from burns and cracked and dry skin. It’s an example of how a simple product like Vaseline can be used to heal skin. We were surprised by the need for such a basic product.” V The aselin rap e Li y, $ p 4

SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS Enjoy this time of year by staying healthy. Here’s how you can cope with a cold, fight the flu and enjoy the season.
Symptoms & Solutions SORE THROAT
Consider: Halls® MenthoLyptus cough drops* or Cepacol® Extra Strength Lozenges
Consider: HelixiaTM Cough or Robitussin® Cough Control
Consider: hydraSense® Daily Nasal Care or Otrivin Complete® Nasal Care
Consider: Vicks® NyQuil® CompleteTM Cold & Flu Liquid or Tylenol® Complete Cold, Cough and Flu
“Many cough, cold and flu medications contain more than one active ingredient,” says Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacist Bhavika Prajapati, “so it’s important to ask your pharmacist what you should be taking to avoid double dosing.” Taking multiple meds may put you at risk for harmful side effects. Never take more than the recommended dose, even when mixing over-the-counter products, she adds.
STAY IN BED
“I wouldn’t recommend going out when you’re sick, especially when you’re taking medications,” says Prajapati. “They can have uncomfortable side effects, such as feeling drowsy. Give your body and mind the time to relax and recharge. If you have the flu, stay home.”
4 TIPS TO FEEL BETTER & STAY HEALTHY 1. “Get enough rest,” says Prajapati. “Not enough people do this, but it will help your body ght off the virus.” 2. Drink lots of uids, she says. Staying hydrated keeps nasal passages clear, and it also helps you take your medications. 3. Some cold medications can make you drowsy, but so can beer, wine and liquor, which may make the side effects worse. Always read and follow medication labels. Also, “Check with your pharmacist about interactions with alcohol,” she says. 4. Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. This protects you from spreading a virus, and will also help you avoid getting infected by a virus.
That’s the approximate number of different viruses that cause colds. The most common types are rhinoviruses. —Canadian Centre of Occupational Health and Safety
GO TO THE PARTY “When you first catch a virus, you’re at your most contagious,” says Prajapati. “A cold can last between seven to 14 days .” That’s the entire holidays! “When you feel better and you’ve regained your strength—without the help of medication—you should be okay to go out.”
Ask your Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacist how you can feel better this holiday season. These products may not be right for you. Always read and follow the label. *Halls® Mentho-Lyptus for the temporary relief of sore throat, cough and nasal congestion.
You can get drug-free nasal congestion relief with Breathe Right® nasal strips or help relieve symptoms with a natural health product like COLD-FX® First SignsTM Capsules.

Are you between 35-58 yrs and coping with hot flushes or night sweats? Help us find effective treatment for hot flushes for you and others like you. We are looking for women based anywhere in Canada to participate in a government-funded 4-month study on how progesterone can be used to control hot flushes in perimenopausal women. You can participate if you: • Are between the ages of 35 – 58 • Have menstruated within 12 months • Experience 4 hot flushes a day or twice weekly night sweats • Have not taken estrogen, progesterone or birth control pills within 6 months You will be asked to keep a daily record of hot flushes and night sweats and receive study medication (progesterone or placebo) for 3 months. Whether you receive the progesterone or the placebo, you are likely to see a reduction in your hot flushes and night sweats while also making a major contribution to women’s health and the advancement of Canadian science. To find out more, please contact the Research Coordinator: Andrea Cameron, RN BScN Tel: (604) 875-5960 Toll free: 1 (855) 875-5960 Email: email@example.com Visit: www.cemcor.ubc.ca
There is currently no proven effective treatment for hot flushes in perimenopausal women. However, a recent trial conducted by Dr. Jerilynn Prior (UBC Professor of Medicine) at the Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) showed that the progesterone pill is safe and effective for hot flushes in menopausal women. We are now looking to prove that progesterone can be as effective in menstruating, perimenopausal women. Recruiting participants until October 2016

Listen up: This year is going to be the year. Hit the like button on 2016 with these celeb health hacks and insider tips for living your best life. BY FLANNERY DEAN
alas!—most, if not all, of us can live like a star when it comes to our overall health. Don’t take cues from airbrushed reality TV stars, who always seem to be shamelessly schlepping a new cleanse. Instead, follow the long and lean footsteps of a gawd-shelooks-amazing star (think TRX-loving
model Izabel Goulart, enviably t Ellie Goulding or blissed-out Zoe Saldana). You want a solid plan, not a temporary effort resulting in feelings of failure from doing the same short-term diet and exercise plans of New Years past. Here are six A-list ways to give your health top billing this year.
IND M R U O Y C N Y S . 1 Y WITH YOUR BOD
Here’s a radical little exercise aha, courtesy of celeb trainer Harley Pasternak. Your workout isn’t going to transform your body– your life will. “Stop focusing on the workout. There’s a lot of unhealthy overweight people who never miss a spin class and still aren’t meeting their goals,” says Pasternak, who trains Natalie Portman, Megan Fox and Kate Beckinsale. In fact, it’s not the hour spent at the gym that will help you t into a body-con frock by Valentine’s Day, it’s what you do for the other 23 hours, says Pasternak. He advocates an overall healthy lifestyle as the surest way to be red carpet-ready all year long. That means maintaining consistent, regular activity. “Take at least 10,000 84 GLOW WINTER 2016
2. REFRESH YOUR “HEALTHY LIFESTYLE” P.O.V. steps a day,” he says. “II wear a Fi Fitbit, bi and d so do my clients.” It also means getting at least seven hours of sleep each night and powering down from life-force-draining technology, in Pasternak’s opinion. “Charge your phone in another room,” he says, and turn off all tech at an appointed time, like, say, 9 p.m. You’ll decompress by the time you hit the sheets. By committing to these behaviours, you’ll make a serious dent in curbing unhealthy ones, such as overeating and a buzzing mind. A lack of sleep negatively affects metabolism, ramps up your appetite and almost always guarantees you’ll be sluggish. Get a good rest, however, and make your steps goal. “The synergy has a giant impact,” he says.

What does a starlet with a beachfront home know about health and wellness that we haven’t wel quite figured out (or don’t have the time to contemplate)? That the mind and body are connected, says Jesse Hanson, clinical director and co-founder of Helix Healthcare Group, with two private healthcare facilities in Toronto. “In California, it’s just common knowledge that your mind and body are connected, and if you’re feeling sick or have something going on physically, there’s something going on emotionally too, and those emotions probably precede the ailment.” Away from La La Land, though, there’s still a divide between the mind and the body, says Hanson, who is familiar with celebrity lifestyles, having spent six years of his career working for the celeb-friendly rehab centre Passages in Malibu and Ventura. The importance of grasping that connection can’t be underestimated, he says. Once you really understand the relationship between mind and body, you will be more inclined to make healthy decisions, he believes. To kick off your mind-body awareness, Hanson recommends reading the books Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom and Bodymind. And the next time you feel your health sliding—you’re lethargic, you have an injury that just won’t go away or you’re getting sick more often—ask yourself how you’re doing emotionally.

ive! s u l c Ex dams A Amy veggies. eats Cleansing, souping, juicing—please stop falling for quick-results hype that just results in a #dietfail. Fad diets are about as useful as a hair straightener on a rainy day, so let them go and embrace eating healthfully consistently. Celebs like Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow understand that eating wisely and well isn’t a secret; it’s a habit, even when you’re on vacation. Sebastien Agnes, chef at Seared restaurant at the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico, confirms that celebs are consistent with their diets. The fivestar resort, which is the preferred haunt of the likes of Aniston and Diane Kruger, serves up “simple organic fare,” says Agnes. “The more simple the better.” Go for lean proteins (steamed or grilled), fresh veggies, whole grains and fruit. This way of eating gets the thumbs up from Pasternak, who was recently in Toronto touting the benefits of Metamucil. He insists that all his clients follow a straightforward formula: three meals and two snacks a day—and make sure that each meal has protein and fibre. “[Eating] protein and fibre five times a day is really important,” he says. “Those nutrients don’t contribute to weight gain and do contribute to satiety and metabolism.” For breakfast, lunch and dinner, have a piece of protein that’s roughly the size of your hand, plus unlimited veggies, a thumb-sized dash of a healthy fat and a palmful of whole grains (or high-fibre fruit), advises Pasternak. Snacks should consist of a small piece of protein (about a third of your main meal) plus fibre. 86 GLOW WINTER 2016

Celebs don’t make the common mistake of thinking all exercise is created equal, says Pasternak. If you aim to tone, strengthen and sculpt your body, you can’t rely on cardio alone; you must add resistance training to your daily activity (in addition to the 10,000-step cardio commitment). Pasternak advises people to start by doing one resistance training exercise (think lunges, squats, push-ups, etc.) a day for ve to 10 minutes. If your goal is to really sculpt your backside or your legs, he says, amp up the intensity and the duration of your workout. Again, the effectiveness is dependent on an overarching commitment to being active and healthy. “If you’re sleeping and eating well and hitting your 10,000-steps goal every day, that ve to 10 minutes of resistance training a day is all you need.”
IT’S OK TO BE A FLAKE Yoga, tai chi, Qigong, walking meditation, sound therapy—when it comes to finding a healing modality that’s right for you, Hanson says don’t be afraid to try anything and everything. He admits to saying to clients: “I don’t care if it’s underwater basket weaving or yodelling off the top of a mountain, what’s important is that when you find your practice you start to find more peace inside. Who am I to say that you must sit on a pillow and meditate every day?” Make like a celeb and give yourself free rein to be a wellness flake. Eventually, you’ll find what works for you.
6. Take advantage of YOUR #GIRLSQUAD Disappointment, breakups, death, debt, unemployment—when it comes to life’s ups and downs, celebrities really are just like us. They, too, must nd sanctuary to heal broken hearts, shattered dreams and decimated savings accounts. Fortunately for them, they also have access to private wellness facilities—a denite bonus. “[Speak with] a real trained professional who can work with you psychotherapeutically, spiritually, emotionally and all of the above,” says Hanson. If you’re low on funds and spirit, don’t isolate yourself. Instead, seek a supportive entourage, just like an A-lister would. “We are biologically engineered to evolve through connection and relationships,” says Hanson. Luckily, connection doesn’t cost a thing.
YOU DESERVE A GOLD STAR The key to attaining anything you want, whether it’s a Hollywood bod, red carpet confidence or a healthy diet, is about making solid choices that pay big dividends. Cast yourself as the star in your own ever-evolving life story, and be sure to make it a kick-ass coming-of-age tale.

HANDLE HOLIDAY STRESS LIKE A BOSS Do the hustle and bustle of the season have you wanting to stay home, binge-watching Xmas specials on Netflix? Pull yourself together—we’ve got you covered with four ways to tackle your inner Miss Scrooge. BY ANNE T. DONAHUE LAST YEAR, I survived the holidays on Imodium and Gravol. I hit a wall so hard on December 24th that I spent the day popping pills. By dinnertime I was clutching my cell, trying to discreetly edit an article under the kitchen counter. The worst part: I couldn’t even enjoy my new Altuzarra for Target outt. I’ve since realized the most wonderful time of the year doesn’t have to be that dreadful. Here’s how to take stressful holiday situations in stride.

To reaffirm my belief that attending everything is ridiculous, Dawn Kingston, assistant professor of nursing at the University of Alberta, assures me that if you don’t want to go somewhere, you don’t have to. “Ask yourself, ‘Do I really need to go to both?’” she says in response to my partyhopping query. “We need to ask ourselves what
value will come from events where we have brief, superficial contact with people. Is this how we want to invest our time and energy?” Nope. Especially since, by the third party of the night, most of us are shells standing around the snack table and glowering at anyone who dares to double dip.
The more stressed we get, the more irrational some of us become (umm, hi!). Instead of treating work deadlines like we normally would, we Tetris our schedules and end up with no actual downtime. Fortunately, the key to managing time is
simple: Imagine it’s not the holidays. Any other time of year, it’s perfectly acceptable to RSVP “I’m swamped.” On the ip side, it’s not unreasonable to ask for extra time with an assignment. Admitting you can’t do it all (ugh) isn’t defeat, it’s sanity-saving.
Sure, we start the holidays budgeting like grown-ass women, but dinner parties, gift exchanges and everything else kill that dream. This time of year is expensive. Kingston points me toward the budgeting system from Smart Money Smart Kids authors Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze. They suggest using envelopes to define purchases—an
envelope for each person, and cash only. Is your Longchamp nylon bag already stuffed? Download an app like Santa’s Bag or Gift It. Having a budget strategy helps spread out your spending over weeks, which makes you less likely to overspend on last-minute gifts. Unless, of course, you’re buying a gift for me— in which case, go all out.
Thanks to Instagram, few of us (hello again!) fear anything more than the repeat outt. Since we don’t have a Kardashian’s wardrobe, we’re forced to compromise. The thing is, nobody wants to spend a fortune on a new wardrobe now. You can either seek your inner minimalist (stick to neutrals, abiding by a uniform-like code), or take solace in knowing that no one is cataloguing your looks. The dress you wore to that wedding last summer? It’s safe to repeat. The same goes for
workwear. “Throwing on accessories, like a statement necklace or earrings, can change your outt,” says London-based fashion PR pro Genevieve Torabi. (Think: layered metallic pieces with an embellished clutch.) Last resort: Makeup amps up any look with minimal effort. Take the fall/winter 2015 beauty looks at Carolina Herrera, Rodarte and Temperley London. The models wore glittery, sparkly eye makeup. Do this and no one will notice your signature leather jacket.
’TIS THE SEASON OF LOVE Mental health is a real priority, especially at this time of year. So it’s best for you (and your famjam) to learn to de-stress around the holidays. Shoppers LOVE. YOU—Putting Women’s Health First—supports local women’s health initiatives across Canada, including mental health efforts.

THE SLIMMING EFFECT OF STABLE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS The link between sugar consumption and increased body fat has long been known. Too much sugar in the diet promotes more insulin, the fat storing hormone, and thus more body fat.
ecently an Italian study of a sugar-blocking supplement showed impressive weight loss results.1 �e supplement, called ZuccarinTM, produced on average 20 pounds of weight loss, in only 90 days.
�e subjects lost 10% of their body weight and lost 3 times the weight of the control group, who were on a controlled diet, but without a mulberry supplement. In addition, the subjects also experienced healthier blood sugar levels a�er using this mulberry supplement. The explanation for the weight loss is that Zuccarin uses natural mulberry leaf extract and chromium to block absorption of sugars in the foods we eat. When these sugars are undigested, our blood sugar stabilizes, and weight loss occurs.
ZUCCARIN MAX CHANGED MY LIFE “I read about Zuccarin in a magazine and since I have blood sugar issues, I started taking the supplement right away. I have taken it for 2 years now and can’t imagine being without it. I have seen my blood sugar levels stabilize and I have even lost 25 pounds of weight since starting. I have recommended Zuccarin to a lot of my friends and they are now experiencing the same good results as I have. I love this product.”
Elenor C., Mia i, FL. Zuccarin™ from New Nordic is the no.1 selling mulberry leaf supplement in the world. Simply take one tablet before each meal. Do something good for your blood sugar and soon feel the difference.
Available at participating pharmacies.

WE STILL REMEMBER the moment we rst saw Dior Tribale double-pearl earrings grace earlobes and instantly wanted a pair (or two, or three. In every colour). We feel the same way about the fashion house’s nail polishes, which are guaranteed to elicit full-blown oohs and ahhs. Every holiday season, Dior issues swoon-worthy limited-edition lacquers that can be easily led under “Things You’d Wear With Every Outt.” The polishes are opulent in every sense of the word, housed in ornament-like bottles with mirrored gold caps (if there’s such a thing as couture nails, these are it). This year, there are four shades: ery red, shimmering gold, deep plum and “Gris-Or,” which changes colour like a mood ring from amber to platinum to yellow. Luckily, there are enough RSVPs on our social calendar to take each one out for a spin. –MISHAL CAZMI Dior Dioric Nail Vernis in Passion, State of Gold, Mystère and Gris-Or, $33 each.
