I remember the trance I fell into as I stood there, mindlessly picking the skin surrounding my nail until it bled and I had to cover it with a Band-Aid.

But from that moment forward, scanning for rough skin in that one particular area and picking until it bled became something I did, compulsively. When, years after sticking to just…

How to Use The Final Takeaway If you’ve walked down the dental aisle at your local drugstore—or even if you’ve simply scrolled through your Instagram feed—chances are, you’ve come across coconut oil-infused oral care products.

Sleep masks (the cloth variety, not to be confused with their skincare counterpart: overnight face masks) are essentially mini personal blackout curtains designed to block any outside light that may get in and interfere with you catching your z’s. “Light plays a huge role in sleep because it can impact our melatonin production as well as circadian rhythms,” explains product expert Keith Cushner of the Sleep Foundation. He goes on to say, "Light-blocking eye masks can help create a dark sleeping environment, which can improve your sleep quality." To find the best available, we conducted hours of research evaluating each…

How to Increase Hydration Is It Possible to Drink Too Much Water? The Takeaway We all know the importance of drinking water and have the harrowing, cautionary tales of run-ins with dehydration (usually linked to particularly noteworthy hangovers) to prove it. Those lessons were learned the hard way and set the foundation for the long-term relationship with our emotional support water bottle we’ve since been nurturing.

Regardless of how much water we…

And that’s all part of its function, you slather it all over your chest and allow the vapors to eradicate a plethora of evils, from sniffles to obstructed airways. But in addition to its marketing use, everyone’s favorite blue goo has a handful of other, lesser-known uses that…

For me, a person who’s already predisposed to overthinking, marijuana, no matter what the form, would typically put my mind into overdrive and result in a common yet dreaded side effect: Paranoia. But, let’s back up a bit. What even is CBD? What Is CBD? Unlike THC, the other crucial compound in hemp and marijuana plants, CBD (when derived from the hemp plant) does not produce the psychoactive effects…
