Why Are People Freaking Out About Collagen Peptides—and What Do They Even Do?

BY AMBER PETTY

Another day, another supplement’s taking over the internet. If you’ve been cruising around Paleo websites or following the latest beauty advice, you’ve probably seen the word "collagen" thrown around more than once. Until recently, collagen was a treasured ingredient in antiaging creams, but didn’t play a big factor in the Western supplement industry.

What Does a Messy Room Say About You?

What Does a Messy Room Say About You?

By Kendra Cherry  | Reviewed by a board-certified physician

Do you ever dream of living in the perfectly clean and organized rooms of a home decor catalog? Or would you rather spend your time in a room cluttered with objects, souvenirs, books, art, and items that make up your daily life.

For some people, a tidy room can be soothing. An orderly retreat in an often disorderly world. For others, such rooms can be sterile, bland, and uninspiring.

10 Trendy Foods You’ll Soon See Everywhere

By Maura Judkis

Every year, thousands of food brands head to New York to show off their wares and entice buyers from grocery stores to stock their products. It’s a trade show called the Fancy Foods Show, and it’s one of the best places to catch trends before they hit grocery store shelves: New products make their debut here, and months later, they appear on the shelves of your local Whole Foods.

Is Dairy Bad for You? Here Are the Facts

BY ANISHA JHAVERI

Is it criminal to put pineapple on pizza? Is avocado toast overrated? Should we all really be terrified of gluten? Should mayonnaise even be allowed to exist?

When it comes to food and health, there’s no shortage of polarizing opinions on any given subject, but if there’s one topic that’s been especially divisive for years, it’s dairy. “There’s a lot of conflicting information about this on the internet, says registered dietitian E.A Stewart. “As a result, a lot of my clients get confused about whether or not to consume dairy.”

Sound relatable? Depending on the year, milk products have been labeled as either essential for growth and development, or as one-way tickets to heart disease. It’s not surprising that the inconsistent info has a lot of us scratching our heads over whether they have a place in a healthy diet.

Face Yoga Is Super Weird, but It Actually Works

Face Yoga Is Super Weird, but It Actually Works

by LISA L. KIRCHNER

I want to start by saying I’m not "anti" aging. I want to live a long life, and that means I’m going to get old. The changes that go along with that are not signs of failure.

So when "Yoga for Your Face" popped up on my Facebook ad feed, despite the "anti-aging" marketing, I clicked immediately.
