Skim vs. Whole Milk Which One Is Better?

We ask the experts

You might be surprised to learn that the best option for your and your family when it comes to dairy might not, in fact, be skim. We spoke with Tammy Lakatos Shames and Lyssie Lakato, registered dietitian nutritionists and personal trainers with 15 years of experience helping thousands of clients, to find out their thoughts on the skim vs whole milk debate. Here’s what they had to say!

“When it comes to skim vs. whole milk, the answer is not as simple as once thought. For most Americans who get far too much saturated fat (and calories for that matter) choosing low-fat milk is what we recommend and is healthier for them. For someone who doesn’t get much saturated fat, having a little bit in milk won’t hurt them, and we’d say it’s ok to for them to have whole milk in their coffee if they prefer it. However, substituting those saturated fat calories with polynunsaturated fat (found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and fatty fish) provides a greater benefit because doing so actually reduces risk of heart disease. At this time, we recommend that most Americans choose low-fat milk and get their fat sources from the polyunsaturated fats to lower their risk of heart disease. However, if someone doesn’t [...]

Ellovi Body Butter

Pure and natural skincare

L’Oréal Paris’ Expert Guide to Choosing Flattering Colors this Winter

From polish to lipstick, we’ve got you covered

Choosing the most flattering hair color, nail polish and lipstick can be a challenge. Skin tone fluctuates throughout the year, so a color that looks phenomenal in the summer could easily make you look tired and washed out in the winter. Fortunately, L’Oréal Paris experts Kari Hill, Tom Bachik and Billy B. share some tips on how to choose the most flattering shades along with product recommendations!

Kari Hill, L’Oréal Paris Consulting Hair Colorist

· Tip: Instead of using the face, I look at the forearm to determine a more precise and unaffected matching of skin tone. When choosing hair color, in addition to skin tone, you should also consider your natural eye color, present choice of makeup, desired maintenance/upkeep and the time of year.

· Cool haircolor tones look best on skin with cool undertones, which can be blue or pink on fair skin to event an olive undertone for darker. On fair skin, L’Oréal Paris Mousse Absolue in Lightest Icy Blonde ($14.99) or Feria Absolute Platinum ($9.99) typically look great. For darker skin, consider L’Oréal Paris Mousse Absolue Icy Dark Brown ($14.99) or Superior Preference Luminere Black Sapphire ($9.99).

· Warm haircolor tones look best on skin with golden or yellow undertones, regardless of dark or light skin. Some at-home hair color options that look good on warm skin tones include, L’Oréal Paris Mousse Absolue Lightest Golden Blonde ($14.99), L’Oréal Paris Excellence Crème Medium Golden Blonde($8.99) or L’Oréal Paris Feria Dark Gold Blonde ($9.99).

· Neutral toned haircolor is the closest tone that could complement a wide variety of skin tones. I liken a neutral color to the tone of a child’s hair. Here are some haircolor options for accommodating varied skin tones: L’Oréal [...]

Celebrity Nail Artist’s Cracked Cuticle Cure

What does the pro use?

Cracked cuticles and dry hands can take even the best manicure from chic to…oy! Cuticle picking and biting can also lead to bacterial and viral infections and did you know, even dental problems. One of the best ways to break this habit or keep pesky dry cuticles at bay is to quench skin with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer.

Celebrity nail artist for the likes of Katy Perry, Pink, Rachael Ray and Allison Williams, Pattie Yankee’s go-to hand and cuticle moisturizer is Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream. “I love how hydrating it is,” says Pattie, “not only does it instantly replenish moisture, it is silky and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.” Yu-Be’s Moisturizing Cream is a concentrated glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with vitamin E and B2, sodium hyaluronate and camphor. Yu-Be’s ultra-healing capabilities are largely due to is high glycerin content which helps skin attract and retain moisture.

In order to keep cuticles in check, Pattie also recommends the following:

 

1. After showering, using your fingers, push cuticles back when they are still [...]
