Her skincare specialist explains.
When you get a bespoke facial from Jennifer Brodeur at Bella Clinique in Montreal, you’ll also meet “Max,” the LED-light-therapy machine that Brodeur designed in 2003 and always refers to as a person. (It’s actually called “Max+.”)
The machine, she explains, harnesses research from NASA and uses light wavelengths to treat skin concerns. Skin cells absorb the UV-free light as energy. Red-light wavelengths, for example, are said to stimulate fibroblasts to create collagen, while yellow light tightens skin.
“It’s interesting because you don’t feel anything, so a lot of clients at first were like, ‘Are you sure you’re doing something?’” she says, laughing. Any disbelievers can call Oprah; Brodeur has been treating her since 2012.

How Marvel-ous! According to E! News, Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter are going to have another Cumberbaby. The pair welcomed their first child, Christopher, just over a year ago in June 2015.
The couple walked last night's Doctor Strange red carpet in L.A. together. (Although with the draped dress Sophie, we can't see the slightest hint of a bump.)
...And, just because, here's Cumberbatch on Jimmy Kimmel.

Okay, first – look, we have exciting new (Canadian exclusive!) posters for the Gilmore Girls sorta-sequel, premiering on Netflix November 25!
Second, OMG we also have never-before-revealed plot details of what's going down in the four 90-minute episodes!
In a release accompanying the photos, Netflix very casualllllly shares this little blurb about where we find our favourite Stars Hollow-ians, 9 years after the first series ended.
"...Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard."
Take a moment to scroll through these posters (organised according to the four seasons, aka 'winter, spring, summer or fallllll, all you have to do is call'), digest, reread and come find us in the comment section to share how you're processing all this.
The bare necessities.
The new bareMinerals BarePro Performance Wear Powder Foundation comes in 30 shades, including its deepest-ever colour offerings, thanks to new technologies and the removal of physical sunscreen, which allowed for the creation of richer pigments.
“It was a limiting factor for us,” says Bill Hughes, the brand’s senior director of global marketing and product development, of the SPF. “We believe in mineral sunscreen, but titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a very ashy cast.”
Added in its wake: vitamins D and E, for hydration, and vitamin B6. “Customers with oily skin tend to be deficient in B6,” says Hughes. “So, along with the silica and mica, it will help control oil absorption.”
These minerals and vitamins are milled to create superfine particles, so the powder foundation avoids looking, well, powdery. Just make sure you apply sunscreen first.
