Did Gwyneth always know that she had a professional rebrand in her future? Probably not. But in a way, goop came to her in her 30s as naturally as the urge to act did in her younger years. “I was always curious and asking questions, so why not make it official?” she says. “The idea of goop evolved and grew, and I along with it.” To celebrate her birthday today, we put together a (not entirely comprehensive) timeline of her five decades of forging her own path.

“I understand on some level that life is linear, that I have lived x number of days thus far and I have more in the basket under my arm than I do in the field before me. But there is something about the sweetness of life that exists deep within me that is unchanged, that will not change. It is the essence of the essence. It seems to be getting sweeter,” writes Gwyneth, ahead of her birthday next week.

Our hair and scalp accumulate sebum (a natural protective oil), hair products, dead skin cells, sweat, and other buildup in the course of everyday living. Over time, this can weigh hair down, making it look dull or feel heavy. Here, the best (clean) ways to clarify hair, leaving it fresh, with renewed volume and shine.

Take a look at the new LYMA laser’s before-and-after photos—wrinkles plumped to youthful suppleness, crepey knees beautifully smoothed—and you might think they’ve been tampered with. They have not; the FDA-approved laser dramatically firms and smooths both face and body.

Tapping therapy, also known as emotional
freedom techniques or EFT, combines three
modalities—cognitive therapy, exposure therapy,
and acupressure—to help reframe old negative
beliefs. “The frame through which we hold a
memory is more important than the memory
itself,” says Dawson Church, PhD, who’s conducted
decades of research on tapping. “It determines if
the memory becomes traumatic or not.”

[Carbon38] Looks You NEED This Week!

I’ve packed my week with activities I want to
squeeze in before summer ends: paddleboarding,
a Pilates session, and a game of tennis with a
friend. I picked some great styles to take me from
each endeavor right into anything else my day
brings and that I can wear right through Fall. I hope
you’re able to get some movement in and enjoy
these last warm weeks of the season, too.

Ayurvedic practitioner Avanti Kumar-Singh, MD,
doesn’t believe in dosha quizzes. Instead, she
outlines how intuitive the everyday practice of
Ayurveda can be. It mostly involves asking
ourselves simple questions, like: What do my
symptoms feel like? Hot or cold? Oily or dry? And
then tuning in to our bodies for the answers.

These clean, all-mineral formulas feel
luxurious and smooth on like a dream.

[Lotus Tribe] Fats… The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Do you love rich and creamy foods? How about desert? Comfort foods?

All of these foods are typically high in fat, and this is what we are looking at in our next installment of our blogs on nutrition and healthy eating.

Check out the excerpt below and click the button to continue reading for more insight.

Fats, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Why do we love eating fatty foods so much? Fats are the things that make food rich and creamy, giving them their smooth texture. We know that fats can lead to clogged arteries and many other health problems, but are all fats unhealthy?

Does eating fat make us fat? The short answer to both of these questions is no, they do not. The low-fat and fat-free craze was really a marketing campaign and had nothing to do with healthy eating. In fact, anything marketed as low-fat or fat-free is usually higher in sugar and preservatives. These processed foods are in no way healthier or a better alternative. Naturally occurring low fat foods, that are not processed, can however be beneficial. It really comes down to natural versus man made and animal versus plant based fats. Finding the “good fats” and including them in your diet is the healthiest way to eat. You just need to pick your fats wisely.

In this installment of our blogs on nutrition, we will be taking a look at fats- what they are, why they are important, how much we need, fats and health, great sources of fats and more.
