All in Get Me Body

Turn Your Hotel Room Into a Personal Gym

I invested in some fitness equipment I could easily travel with as well as a back-to-basics workout routine that can be executed inside a hotel room. Resistance bands comfortably fit into a carry-on or checked bag. Once you get back to the daily grind, you won’t feel like you’re starting at square one.

Freeze It, Hold It, Squeeze It!

But for those who are unable to invest in training sessions or feel more comfortable sweating it out on their own (motivation: Beyonce’s Lemonade album— word to the wise… “Don’t Hurt Yourself”), there are many ways to optimize your workouts by simply changing your approach to some popular exercises. Hiding in plain sight are key tweaks that can dramatically enhance the results of your familiar routine making the exercises more effective at getting you closer to reaching your fitness goals.

The 'Scurge' of Acne and the Skincare Regimen that Saved Me

The truth is, besides my hormones, the biggest contributor to my continual problem with acne has been my own ignorance. I didn’t know what to use, how to use it, or how often I should. Now that I’m 32 with enough trial and error and Biore blackhead strips behind me, I’ve finally found a skincare regimen that’s working for me...at least for now.

To Whey Or Not To Whey?

Like kale and quinoa, whey protein has enjoyed a place of prominence thanks to fitness marketing—promising to be the best for building lean muscle. Here’s the problem, for many people (especially brown people) whey protein doesn’t agree with their systems.
