New Heights

Epicurious’s Kendra Vaculin explains how she uses old cookbooks to prop up her desk computer:

“Building a cookbook standing desk (or laptop lift, if I’m feeling sedentary) has done wonders for my productivity during this new WFH era. After weeks of wondering why I couldn’t focus while curled on the couch in a position called The Chiropractor’s Nightmare, balancing my computer on a little pile of culinary inspiration was enough to set me straight.”

Skin Deep

Want glowing skin? Try using superfoods, writes Laura Pitcher:

“You might think your skincare routine starts with a simple cleanser, but many nutritionists would argue that it starts with what you eat. ‘What you put in your body literally becomes your skin,’ says holistic nutritionist Afya Ibomu. As a result, kitchen ingredients are gradually becoming beauty staples, with a rising interest in superfoods in particular.”
