If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hand sanitizer and the electric toothbrush. We asked Jean Godfrey-June, beauty director of Goop, about the ground coffee, facial moisturizer, and egg poacher she can’t live without.
You know how the moms of now try to disguise cauliflower by ricing it into mac ‘n’ cheese? I disguise foul-tasting-but-miracle-working health powders with delicious coffee. It really works. During the week, I further health-ify the coffee by using macadamia-nut milk (17 billion times more milklike than any other nut milk in my opinion) instead of actual milk. I started with the nut-milk-in-coffee after I saw the Forks Over Knives documentary, which is beyond convincing on the go-vegan-now front. I haven’t gone full vegan, but I figured the milk in my coffee was really going to add up over the years, more than the occasional prosciutto-something. On the weekends, I live it up with the grass-fed, organic, full-fat real stuff, but either way, the Peet’s totally drowns out the noxiously curative powders.
Massage your feet at night, and the next day will be better, I’m convinced. I’ve done this forever: Just a minute or two tells your whole body that everything is as it should be, that everything will be okay. Plus, it keeps your feet soft and appealing all winter. And if you do it for your kids, they will always be happy to see you right before bed, even when they are sullen teenagers. The people at UMA — who make this trance-inducing, brilliantly clean and nontoxic blend of oils — taught me to go a step further. Make sure to massage between your toes: It’s where the skin is thinnest, so the oils absorb better.
