Editors may be the beauty industry’s traditional arbiters of taste, but in the digital age, Redditors are just as influential. A vast online forum with discussion groups dedicated to every topic imaginable, Reddit is stacked with highly engaged beauty communities whose members passionately swap acne hacks, holy-grail product recommendations, and skin-care science intel.

At the beginning of February 2020, the moderator of r/AusSkincare—an Australian beauty subreddit with nearly 12,000 members—started a wiki for the community titled Reduce, Reuse, Continue Reading

When Instagram ‘wellness influencers’ sound like the pro-anorexia blogs that fueled my eating disorder

My best friend’s Instagram “discover” page is full of photos of golden retrievers. My mother’s, of inspirational quotes superimposed onto nature scenes (you know the ones).

For me, routine is everything. I want to know what I’m eating every day (I show up to restaurants having read the full menu), what my weekend plans are (five days early), and I absolutely cannot see a movie in theaters unless I’m there an hour before showtime.

For some reason, I had never gotten in on the fermented drink movement, but in the spirit of stepping out Continue Reading
