And by 'escape' we actually mean representing his grandmother on a tour of some Commonwealth countries.
Prince Harry's escaping the November gloom for a little pre-Christmas fun in the sun.
The redheaded royal is off on a solo tour of Antigua, Barbuda, St Kitts, St Lucia and (stop to catch breath) St Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Grenada and finally Guyana. He'll be island hopping between November 20 and December 4.
Last time the royal went to the Caribbean we got this picture, so...lots to look forward to, friends.
Are you using it yet?
We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.
Bust a move!
Devin Brugman used to need to wear three sports bras to get through a workout. (She’s a 32DDD.) “The only options were these maternity-style harness bras or slim, sexy types,” says Brugman, the co-founder of the A Bikini a Day Instagram and website. (Yes, she and bestie Natasha Oakley pose in swimwear every day; no, they are not insane.) So she designed her own bra, the “Devin,” for her Monday Active sportswear line. Here are her non-negotiables:
We need this so our breasts stay in place and because it prevents the stretching of the Cooper’s ligaments – the connective tissue in the breasts. (Stretching = sagging.) “Eighty percent of the strength and support of the bra is in the band,” says Jenine LaFayette of Brooks Running Canada. “It’s like the foundation of a house.” (The band should be tighter than your typical bra, so you may need to go down a size.)
If the cup is wrinkling, it’s too small and can chafe. Make sure it sits smoothly over the breasts.
Run in place, squat or do your best Britney Spears impression while trying on the bra in the change room. If it’s even the slightest bit pinchy, walk away.
(Don’t) free the nipple
Sleeping in a sports bra won’t make your girls perkier (sorry), but it can reduce pre-period tenderness. “It feels better because your breasts aren’t moving around at night,” says Dr. Ruth Heisey of Women’s College Hospital in Toronto.

He had a party. Taylor, Katy and John Mayer were there. Rihanna wasn’t.
On Sunday night, Champagne Papi rang in his 30th birthday by dropping four new tracks on OVO Sound Radio, and hosting a star-studded birthday celebration at Delilah’s restaurant in West Hollywood. A-list celebs like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and John Mayer attended the fête (hopefully that wasn’t too awk), along with Jamie Foxx, French Montana and Zoë Kravitz. Sadly, there were no RiRi spottings.
Drizzy didn’t seem too bothered...especially when the 6ix God was treated to a signed photo from British singer Sade. (Drake is a longtime fan.)
Drake’s cake however, possibly stole the show, (not just because we are in the middle of a huge Halloween candy craving). The gorgeous three-tiered gateau featured baby pics of him and album artwork for his upcoming Apple Music playlist More Life.
"It really means a lot to me, everybody being here," Drizzy said in an Instagram video taken at the celebration. “The support that you give, night in and night out for the team that's with me every day..."
More life, Drizzy, we wish you all the best.
