Beauty Packing List: Here’s What Almost 30 Podcaster Krista Williams Is Taking on Tour

Wellness and lifestyle blogger/podcaster Krista Williams is ready to go on tour: “I’m all about growth, learning and transformation, so having the opportunity to be surrounded by new environments, people, places and things fills me up.” She and her Almost 30 podcast cohost, Lindsey Simcik, have packed their bags for a whirlwind trip across the country, where they will have a chance to meet their enthusiastic listeners and share insights on health, wellness, spirituality, relationships and careers.

It came as no surprise to us that Williams, our most trusted lifestyle guru, is also a masterful traveler. Her packing tips and pre-flight health rituals teach us that turbulent travel can be avoided with simple preparation. Ahead of her tour, we caught up with Williams to get the nitty-gritty on how she stays organized, calm and moisturized while jet-setting. As usual, she keeps it 100.

Get the HUM Glow with This One Vitamin and Some Yummy Recipes

Aging, stress, environmental pollutants and a poor diet all have negative impacts on the skin, causing it to lose moisture, luminosity and elasticity over time. A dire prognosis, since we can’t stop the clock. Luckily, the beauty experts at Hum Nutrition have a highly effective solution, proven to help you regain your glow from the inside-out, without messing with the laws of nature.

Glow Sweet Glow is a vegan gummy vitamin that helps the skin retain moisture thanks to low-molecular, easy-to-absorb hyaluronic acid. That, plus a combination of vitamins C and E, gives the skin a protective barrier. Best yet, the gummy tastes like an orange creamsicle.

We chatted with registered dietitian Sarah Greenfield about the radiant effects of hyaluronic acid and vitamins C and E contained in Glow Sweet Glow, Hum’s newest daily vitamin for optimal skin health. As a bonus, Sarah shares her favorite delicious recipes for clear, hydrated skin.

Dr. Raj Teaches Us About Our Skin’s Microbiome

Despite regimented facials and thorough double cleanses, what happens in your gut will eventually show on your skin. “If the good and bad bacteria aren’t balanced in your gut and intestines, you can develop conditions like acne, redness, psoriasis, dry skin and eczema,” says Dr. Roshini Raj, the woman behind TULA Probiotic Skincare. The  gastroenterologist with glowing skin is a big believer in approaching beauty from the inside out. Her range of prebiotic- and probiotic-infused skin care is free of toxins and full of skin-loving superfoods, like blueberries, turmeric and vitamin C, which maintain a healthy skin microbiome and improve skin barrier function.

So what is a microbiome, exactly? To better understand the connection between the skin and the gut and how this can all result in a breakout, we called on Dr. Raj to help us understand what’s going on inside our bodies, and therefore, on our skin’s surface. And most urgently, how do we correct an imbalance? Her advice and her beauty breakdown, ahead.

THE DOCTOR IS IN

Moon Juice’s (Yummy) Chocolate Spirit Shake Recipe

In her morning routineMoon Juice founder and beauty alchemist Amanda Chantal Bacon revealed that in order to manage our weight and our mental and physical health, what we really need to focus on is reducing stress: “Exercise and diet actually inform what your hormone profile looks like, which then will design your body. So nourish yourself, get proper sleep and don’t stress your body by forcing it to work out five days a week.”

To show us how, Bacon concocted an indulgent smoothie aimed to satisfy our sweet tooth while nourishing our bodies with critical superfoods that regulate our stress and improve overall health. Oh, and this chocolate morning smoothie tastes absolutely incredible.

Nike Air Max 270 Style

The Evolution of Nike Air Max

Since legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield put the brand’s revolutionary air technology on display in 1987, the Air Max has earned a devoted following that includes sneakerheads, athletes, pop stars and, most recently, the fashion elite. Rita Ora rocks them on- and offstage, and Beyoncé has been spotted in a pair (in Liquid Gold, of course). Fashion Week attendees count on the sneaker for walking comfortably from show to show, and minimalist-style-queen Phoebe Philo pairs them with understated separates. The sneaker is majorly cushioned, incredibly innovative and super fly—a solid streetwear staple. March is Nike Air Max month and to celebrate, we’re looking back at a few iterations of the game-changing sneaker.
