Style Sasheer Zamata Swears This $4 Mask Helps With Acne
Why I use my Slip silk sleep mask every night for a good night’s sleep
Too much tossing and turning in bed led me to the Slip silk eye mask. Now, I can only fall asleep with my Slip on.While there are definitely “pandemic purchases” I regret — a pair of boots still in their box, blazer for the office covered in creases and unused lipstick in overly colorful hues — my Slip sleep mask isn’t one of them. In fact, I can’t imagine sleeping without it now.
After spending the past year and change inside, Sasheer Zamata has been feeling a certain type of way about her closet: “I keep looking at it and thinking, 'I have too much stuff." (Can relate.)
That “stuff” comes from a lot of places, but thealum has especially enjoyed scouring for vintage clothes on Etsy during this COVID-19 era of her life. Her finds don't always match her current wardrobe vibe—"I've been wearing a lot of matching sweatsuits because, well, where are we going," she says—but they'll work for her post-pandemic life. “Usually, my style is very flow-y and boho. Like, she's a witch who likes to travel around in the forest kind of look.”
3 Reasons Avocado Oil Has Serious Benefits for Skin
Plus, the products to help you add it in."Avocado oil has numerous skin benefits because of its bioactive molecules, including fatty acids, folate, vitamin C and vitamin E," says board-certified dermatologist Hadley King, MD. "Vitamins C and E are potent antioxidants that can help protect the skin from damage from free radicals from UV rays and pollution. And fatty acids are great for moisturizing and nourishing the skin barrier. Avocado oil also has anti-inflammatory properties." Now, keep scrolling to find out why avocado is just as beneficial to your skin-care routine as it is to your snacking routine.
Denise, Zamata's character on the new ABC show Home Economics, also favors a boho look—though her budget for shopping is likely much smaller. As a second grade teacher living in the notoriously expensive Bay Area, Denise and her wife Sarah (Caitlin McGee) are dealing with a financial situation that Zamata describes as “a bit gloomy.” Sarah's brothers Tom and Connor (Topher Grace, Jimmy Tatro), meanwhile, are at other end of the wealth spectrum, and this leads to frank conversations about money and other topics rarely explored on half-hour sitcoms. The result is a heartwarming family comedy—and Zamata is the standout star.

Help your skin age gracefully, whether you're in your 20s or your 60s.Once you find a skin care product that works (like, really works), it can be tempting to stick with your formula until the end of time. Unfortunately, loyalty is not the best skin care ingredient.
The essential oil that helps me get ready for bed
I like essential oils a lot, and I've been using an oil diffuser to let lavender waft in the air while I wind down from the day. I can fall asleep really anytime, anywhere—so I definitely don't need help sleeping—but this does ease me into it. I like. Their stuff smells really good, and I'll wear their oils out and about. I catch myself smelling my wrist when I do because it smells so good.
The kitchen tool that got me through quarantine
I got a toaster oven by. I've never liked microwaves that much because they kind of make things soggy sometimes, and it's not great to have those waves so close to a human body. I had a lot of friends suggest a toaster oven, and I love this one. I make so much stuff in there; it's nice to not have to preheat a whole oven in order to make something really quick. It's been a lifesaver during the pandemic.
There's a Nationwide Shortage of This Popular Milk
Americans love Oatly oat milk, but retailers are explaining how a shortage is affecting coffee and grocery orders around the country.Late last week, Starbucks Corp. and Fresh Direct, the 19-year-old grocery delivery company that was one of the first in the country, confirmed short supplies of Oatly oat milk to Bloomberg. It seems the main reason for the scarcity is that the beloved plant-based milk brand has been working on a new plant in Utah to keep up with demand, but construction on that factory has reportedly been delayed because of issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
My favorite comfy pants
I've been wearing a lot oflately. They have these matching sweatsuits that I've been living in for last few months, and I'll rotate from gray to lavender to brown depending on my mood. They are very comfy and warm. I think I'll probably keep wearing sweats even as things open up, because you can dress them up. Put some fun sneakers on, or jewelry, or maybe a cool jacket and it looks like you've tried a little bit.
The book I'm reading to tap into my creative side
I'm currently readingand actively doing it. It's a 12-week course on how to tap into your creativity. I did it years ago in another kind of isolating moment in time: After college, when I didn't know what I was going to do, what city I was going to live in, or what direction to go in my career. I just started this during the pandemic because I wanted to tap into it again and see if the words still connected with me. It's showed me that I miss plays, so I've tried to read more lately and see what that sparks.
Um, What Are Blind Pimples and Why Won't They Leave Me Alone?
Everything (and every treatment) you need to know ASAP.If you’re only going off the name alone, a blind pimple sounds like the best-case scenario, right? Like, totally invisible to everyone but you? Great! Perfect! Nice! Buuut if you’ve ever had one of these deep, painful pimples that truly take forever to get rid of, you know this type of zit is far from best-case scenario, especially when it leaves behind a cute lil’ acne scar or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that’s far from“blind.
The one thing I'm telling everyone in my family to buy
My family and I started doing Zooms once a month during the pandemic, which is nice because I'm talking to my extended family more than ever. Recently, people were suggesting different health things to do, like vitamins to take and things like that. I told them about these chewable beet supplements bythat I started taking because the medic on Home Economics recommended them. They taste like candy, which is great because I don't actually like beets, and are full of nutrients. I think they've been working—I feel like my blood circulation has been getting better, and I'm not cold all the time like I usually am.
My number-one beauty item
I like using the. It feels really good and isn't slimy or sticky—it just works with my skin. And I like that there's primer in it because I can put that on and be done. It's just one thing and I'm out the door. It's a nice base for makeup as well.
My go-to products to help with acne
I love a mask. I've been using thisbecause I read somewhere that spearmint is really helpful for acne, which I still get sometimes. I feel like it's helping–it's drying out the spots that are problem areas while refreshing the other areas of my face. also has great products, including this white algae mask that I like a lot. It feels like a clay mask.
Can You Dye or Bleach Your Hair While Pregnant?
OBGYNs explain why it’s probably OK to change your hair color during pregnancy — but why you may not want to nonetheless.Needless to say, pregnancy doesn't disqualify you from boredom, nor the urge to make a big beauty change. Take Hilary Duff, for example. The actor recently shared video clips to her Instagram Stories in which her entire head was covered in foils as colorists bleached her hair, creating the ideal canvas for the blue hue she then dyed it. She remarked what a good client she was, only getting up once to go to the bathroom because she's eight months pregnant.
I've started using, which is an acne treatment program. You say what your needs are, and you actually talk to dermatologists throughout the journey. I've been doing it for the last few months. I feel like it's working, which is so awesome because I've tried lots of things like that before and have seen no results. It's been awhile since I've had a flare up, and I'm pretty excited about that.
My friend, makeup artist Andrew Sotomayor, showed me how to take makeup off my face. That's probably part of the reason I was getting a lot of acne, because I wasn't taking makeup completely off before. I use an oil that breaks down the makeup, then I wash it off, and then I do it again. After that, I get a cleanser and wash again. I basically just wash my face over and over again until I don't see any more makeup. Then I getwitch hazel and use that until everything's gone. After Andrew described how much I need to wash my face, I was like, “Oh! I was mostly walking around with makeup before this point and I didn't even know.”
