It's All Good: Gwyneth Paltrow's New Cookbook

Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great 

Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy-Award winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the foods she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.

Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all! 

An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor's guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great. Now, in IT'S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Hummus Tartine with Scallion-Mint Pesto, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana "Ice Cream," and more!

YSL Introduces Radiant Matte Bronzers for a Shine-Free Finish

Summer 2013 heralds a new era for YSL Beauty. Since launching in 1968, the brand's Saharienne bronzers have built a reputation as a go-to cult classic, and this summer they get even better: the season brings the launch of Terre Saharienne 2013, three new formulas with a radiant matte finish.

"With its ultra light, satiny textures, it mattifies while at the same time providing lots of radiance," said Lloyd Simmonds, creative director of makeup for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute. "I wanted to wrap the YSL women in light [and given her] the essential 'sun kiss' that beautifies without altering the skin's natural luminosity."

The three shades (Terra Amber, Terra Ochre, and Terra Tan), which run $50 a pieces, contain a special combination of mica particles coated in amino acids that help absorb perspiration and oil, leaving the skin with a desirable luminous, soft, and shine-free effect.

You Can Now Self-Tan in the Shower

The golden rule to a successful faux-bronzing session is to put off rinsing the chemicals off for as long as possible. You want the agent to fully absorb into dry skin and "set" for at least 24 hours (48 is ideal). But beauty maven Josie Maran is about to change the tanning game: Her new Argan Self-Tanning Body Wash is meant to be applied in your shower, where it's obviously pretty wet.
The formula, which dispenses out of a pump in a foamy mousse, is loaded with moisturizing elements like aloe vera and her blend of skin-softening argan oil plus self-tanning agent DHA. According to the directions, you just pump the stuff onto a long-handled loofah (included within the package) — each section of the body requires one pump — and swiftly rub the foam in circular motions. This whole process needs to be done out from under the water stream, so either shut your shower off or huddle in the far corner of your tub, like you do when the water suddenly turns a shocking ice cold. Wait 30 seconds for the tanning body wash to penetrate the skin, then rinse. Post-shower you pat, not rub, your skin dry with a towel, then follow with a moisturizer (Josie Maran's Bronzing one will leave bits of shimmer on the skin) to keep skin hydrated and smooth.  If you follow the directions correctly, your clean skin will glow with a non-streaky, subtle tan.
