How to Transition Your Skin-Care Routine From Summer to Fall

With fall in full swing (we see you, PSL), it’s time to talk skin. Autumn brings cooler weather (sweater weather!) and a drop in humidity, which makes for dry, stale air and even drier skin. “Mix this with dry heat from radiators, and it’s a setup for skin disasters like eczema and dry, itchy skin,” says Shari Marchbein, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.

To avoid the itch fest, here are the five top tips from dermatologists to thwart autumnal skin-related freak-outs.

She recommends a heavy cream made with ceramides, which are the “essential and healthy fatty acids that occur naturally in the skin but need to be replenished during the colder months.” Her top pick? CeraVe’s Moisturizing Cream, which

Planet Fitness’ Unit Economics Show Signs of a Bright Future

Planet Fitness’ franchise business model is attractive to investors as long as the unit economics of individual locations generate favorable cash-on-cash returns. While its gyms begin to reopen across the country, I believe the company can get back to producing those pre-coronavirus returns and still provide a solid runway for growth.

We Asked People How the Pandemic Has Changed Their Approach to Health and Wellness

This research is powered by the VICE Media Group audience. Using our websites and social channels, we invited the VICE, Refinery29, and i-D audiences to take an online survey in June 2020. We spoke to more than 4,000 people in more than 30 countries around the world. The majority of respondents were 16 to 39 years old.
