~ Retail stores are capitalizing on the wellness trend. From in-store meditations to aromatherapy blending, pop-up shops and even big-name department stores are trying to appeal to health-savvy customers to build brand loyalty and boost sales. — Well+Good

 

~ There’s a not-so-pretty downside to lip injections. While they’ll make your lips perfectly plump at first, routine lip injections can stretch the skin, causing the lips to deflate and sag when the filler wears off. Yikes. — Allure

 

~ Is skincare more effective if you mix it fresh at home? The DIY skincare trend is taking over the beauty world and for good reason. — ELLE

 

~ Go with your gut. By now you’ve probably heard the claims that gut health is crucial to long-term health, but is it really true? See what an expert has to say— Marie Claire

 

~ Retinol oil: anti-aging without the irritation. Now you can get your daily dose of retinol without all the irritation and flaking. Take your pick from these top 6 retinol oils.  — StyleCaster

 

~ Now there’s even more reason to slather on the SPF. New research reveals that wearing SPF not only prevents sun damage, but reverses it by improving skin’s texture, clarity and pigmentation. — The Coveteur

 

~ Red wine does the brain good. A recent study in Frontiers in Nutrition found that the metabolites left over from drinking red wine could delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. — Science Daily
