The Best Sunscreen: This One Will Really Have You Covered

NextTribe best sunscreen

Think back to your teenage summers. Remember slathering on baby oil, grabbing one of those silver reflective gizmos, and lying on a beach, by a pool, or pretty much anywhere unshaded in pursuit of the perfect tan? Your older and wiser self knows that was not the smartest strategy, but you may think an SPF 30 cream is the best sunscreen you can use right now. Nope!

The Real Swimsuit Models of NextTribe

Bikini Models in Middle Age: The Real Swimsuit Models of NextTribe

We said, “Damn straight.” This got us to thinking why we–as mature women–have to look at these willowy teens (or just about) and try to imagine ourselves in their suits. We need real bikini models of our very own.

For Women Only: Are All-Female Resorts and Offices a Good Thing?

For Women Only: Are All-Female Resorts and Offices a Good Thing? | NextTribe

For centuries, women have debated and hated men’s clubs, those bastions of the old boys’ network. But in this era of #metoo and #timesup, women are thinking maybe they will go their own way and create special, for women only spaces. The idea is that women can create their own communities and empowerment without men running the show or making females feel threatened. While some question if this role-reversal is viable in the long-term, for now, it seems to be a growing wave.

The (Next)Tribe Has Spoken: Here are the Beauty Habits That are Working For Us at Midlife

Best Beauty Habits at Midlife: What's Working for Our Tribe | NextTribe

We asked and the tribe has spoken—and you had some pretty enlightening things to say about what beauty tips are (and aren’t) working for you now. In a survey we posted a couple weeks ago, you loyal readers shared your best beauty habits and other intel—from how many products you’re using to what celebs you look up to as beauty icons (Helen Mirren, Cindy Gallop, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren—did we mention Helen Mirren?).

A big take-away? We’re not spending a huge amount of time on beauty. About 46 percent of you responded you spend 30 total minutes a day on grooming. And that’s the whole shebang: Combined makeup, hair, skincare for morning and night on a routine day. And while 46 percent of us claim to spend more time on beauty than 20 years ago, some (12 percent, to be exact) are doing less.

Proving that her memorable pipes can also carry a tune, she’s now performing at New York City’s famed Café Carlyle with a cabaret-style show called Finding My Voice.

Meal Kits: What You Lose When You Use Them

NextTribe meal kits

Back in the day, when our moms didn’t have much time to cook, they grabbed a box of Hamburger Helper and — boom! — dinner was served. Times sure have changed thanks to the likes of Plated, Blue Apron and Sun Basket— meal kits offering all kinds of flavorful dishes. Several of my friends are converts, saying they want to avoid the time spent at the supermarket or get introduced to new tastes and techniques. But to me, these convenient culinary crash-courses come at the price of two essential cooking components: creativity and ingenuity.
