Our content philosophy has always been more in the quality vs. quantity at The Fold. We realize this can lead to a somewhat inconsistent posting schedule and are currently working hard behind the scenes to streamline both our processes and the categories we cover on the site. 

An area that we have neglected and don't intend to cover heavily are product round-ups. We initially assumed there were enough of those to go around but have since realized that there are discoveries made worth sharing in the variety of categories we cover. The first is a topic we shamelessly love: skincare. 

Friend of The Fold, Elizabeth Kendig, is our go-to for all product, process and trends in both the beauty and spiritual world. We asked her to share the places, people and products that are currently on her radar for women of an "uncertain age".

1. It’s not so much about looking younger, as about being dewy. Eight Faces Boundless Solid Oil ($88) delivers both. Use it like an (all-natural!) anti-aging face cream then enjoy the gorgeous sheen that it leaves behind.

2. We’d like to look away from all of those sponsored instagram posts, but let’s be honest. Most recent late-night haul: RoseGlow Sonic Depuffer. Maybe you’ve seen it taking five pounds of bloat off the model’s face, too? This handheld, battery-operated facial firmer also works on fortysomethings the morning after too much champagne or fried chicken.

3. There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman who does exactly what she wants to do. If that means staying in on a Friday night, then the Girls Night In newsletter is for you. With book recommendations, movie releases, and self-care tips, you’ll never have FOMO again.

4. The most transcendent facial we’ve had in years comes courtesy of Diane Avitable at Jill Lindsey in Brooklyn. From the jade roller and herbal poultice to facial massage and Avitable’s own line of magical masks and potions, our skin and spirit has never been more tended to.

5. Baths are the new . . . we’re not sure, but they’re back and we approve. You don’t need anything fancy to make yours special: Ye olde Dr. Teals mineral soaks are still the best readily availabe at your local drugstore. Light a few candles, pour yourself a cup of herbal tea or lemon water, and have a good, releasing cry.
