Coronavirus: All the Celebrities Who Have Tested Positive For COVID-19

Looks like Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande were right about the coronavirus pandemic: everyone who is able to stay home amidst the spread of COVID-19 should do so. Not even your favorite celebrities are immune. Since Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson confirmed their diagnoses in Australia, the question became a matter of when other famous faces would come down with the virus next, not if. Even Heidi Klum, who says she could not get a hold of a test, revealed she’d been experiencing symptoms.

Here’s every celebrity who’s said they tested positive for coronavirus:

Idris Elba

“This morning I tested positive for Covid 19,” he captioned a video on Twitter on Monday, March 16. “I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing 👊🏾👊🏾 No panic.”

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson

After first sharing the news on Instagram that he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus last week, Hanks has been keeping us posted on his status.

As of Monday, March 16, Hanks and Wilson left the hospital and are now staying in a rented home in Australia for five days, according to People.

14 Best Silk Pillowcases for Smoother Hair & Skin in 2020

Few things are as soul crushing as going to bed with a fresh blowout only to wake up with a rumpled mess of frizz. Chances are a night of particularly deep sleep has wreaked havoc on your hair at least once before, but the best silk pillowcases can help you avoid crazy bedhead in the future.

Aside from keeping your hairstyle intact, the smooth texture prevents hair breakage caused by friction (something that can happen with regular cotton pillowcases). What’s more—sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help prevent wrinkles, so bringing them into your bedroom could have a positive impact on your hair and skin, and who doesn’t want that?

Why should you use a silk pillowcase?

Derived from domesticated silkworms, silk pillowcases are naturally hypoallergenic, so they prevent buildup of dust mites, fungus, mold, and other allergens. Silk pillowcases also tend to be good heat regulators, which means no flipping your pillow over to the cold side every 20 minutes. But the main draw to silk pillowcases is the potential hair and skin benefits.

As mentioned above, delicate silk won’t cause fine lines that rougher materials, like cotton, are believed to contribute to, and they can actually help make your skin care products more effective. “They keep your products from escaping from your skin, so you can really ensure they are penetrating,” says celebrity facialist and La Mer global skin-care adviser Georgia Louise. Last (and perhaps most important), they lessen the amount of breakage you get from moving around on your pillow while you sleep, making for smoother, healthier hair.

What’s momme, and how much of it do I want in my silk pillowcase?

Momme refers to the density of the silk and indicates the quality of the material. Think of it like thread count—more threads mean extra durability, making for a more luxurious experience. A 13 to 19 momme count is perfectly fine, while 25 is top-of-the-line. A 25-momme variety is going to be significantly more dense than a 22- or 19-momme—and far more expensive. If it’s your first time buying a silk pillowcase, one with momme in the teens will get the job done. Really looking for a splurge? Pick an option that’s at least 22 momme and made with mulberry silk, which is basically the equivalent of Egyptian cotton. The fibers are longer and more uniform, so the fabric is smoother and will hold up through more washes.

What are the best silk pillowcases?

Great, we’ve convinced you. There are plenty of silk pillowcases out there, and we’ve tried many of them. In an effort to upgrade your beauty sleep, we asked our editors to test the best silk pillowcases out there and report back with their favorites. Read on to find out which brands made the cut.

Sleep is a $70 billion industry—we throw our money at a dreamier night’s rest, promise ourselves we’ll prioritize it, and then gripe when we’re still, inevitably, so tired. Despite our collective obsession with sleep, we seem totally unable to get more of it. In fact, we’re clocking fewer hours than ever. So, this month, we’re taking a look at what’s getting in the way—and what to do about it.

Avoid Retinol Burn and Irritation with This Buffering Trick

Despite dermatologists describing retinol as a skin care star, it can come with an unpleasant side effect: retinol burn. Also known as retinol irritation, it’s essentially what happens when your face can’t tolerate the powerful ingredient and subsequently devolves into a flaky, peeling, red mess. Derms and editors alike often describe it as the most powerful exfoliant out there, so when you hit the sweet spot, it makes for glowing, luminous skinHeather Rogers, M.D., calls it a wonder cream. But, if you accidentally overdo it or use it incorrectly, the reaction can be sudden and unpleasant—something that discourages many from even trying retinol.

“Some patients jump into using retinols with too much excitement—it’s important to ease your way in to avoid excessive irritation,” says Union Square Laser Dermatology‘s Y. Claire Chang, M.D.. “I always recommend a spot test before applying to your whole face. Incorrect application and misuse can also lead to excess irritation.”

There is, however, an easy trick to foolproof retinol application. It’s called buffering, and it involves combining retinol with moisturizer to dilute it so your skin can adjust. Below, experts break down the process.

Why does retinol burn my skin?

“Of all of the topical options you have for antiaging, retinols have been most often proven effective,” says dermatologist Hadley King, M.D.. Retinol works by increasing cell turnover so that brown spots go away faster, blackheads and blocked pores clear out, sun damage is repaired, and your skin builds collagen (which keeps wrinkles and fine lines at bay). The tricky part: The more it gets on your skin, the more it’s going to kick cells into overdrive. Your face does what it’s told, so if too much of the ingredient sinks in, not-ready skin will surface—and just like that, you’re left with red, peeling irritation.

Retinol burn may also occur depending on the formulation you’re using and how often you’re applying it. “Over-the-counter retinols tend to cause less irritation than prescription retinoids,” says Chang. “It can take weeks for your skin to get used to them, so it’s important to ease your way in. Use as tolerated.” She often advises patients to only incorporate the ingredient every few nights initially, then increasing frequency slowly. Consider your skin type too; retinol is a powerful ingredient, so if you tend to be sensitive (or have skin conditions like eczema and rosacea), avoid flare-up areas and go slowly.

How to prevent skin irritation from retinol

Preventing irritation is where buffering comes in—answering the common question of whether you should apply your retinol before or after moisturizer. Answer: Try applying it at the same time instead. While it’s more potent when applied beforehand, some complexions can benefit from an additional layer of moisturizer.

“Buffering dilutes the retinol and makes it more tolerable overall,” explains dermatologist and co-founder of LM Medical NYC Morgan Rabach, M.D.. “This is recommended for people who get dry after using retinols.”

If you want to reap the benefits of the ingredient without the gamble that you’re using it wrong, moisturizer is key. Rogers agrees, pointing out that the process both hydrates your skin and acts as a buffer for a gentler experience.

While it does mean you won’t get the full thrust of retinol’s abilities, for people with dry or sensitive skin, that can be a good thing. The thinner or more reactive your skin, the more retinol will be absorbed, so adding a plain, basic moisturizer like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream keeps your skin happy. If you want to simplify even more, King says you can moisturize first, then top with your retinol. Still, buffering—mixing the two together—is a great way to be extra sure you’re not overdoing it, and Rogers says she recommends it for people who’ve had a bad retinol experience but want to give it another shot.

8 Best White Noise Machines in 2020: Snooz, YogaSleep, & More

So you’ve secured the best sheets in all the land, your cozy pajamas are on deck, and your mattress is top-notch—but you still can’t manage to doze off peacefully. Bringing the best white noise machine into the mix might be the fix you’ve been searching for. Whether the wall clock in your living room seems to grow exponentially louder the second you lie down, or dead silence magnifies that internal voice spewing off your mental to-do list—a white noise machine has the potential to finally bring on some solid shut-eye. With so many options on the market, Glamour editors wanted to figure out which ones deserve a spot on your nightstand—so for Sleep Month, we put them to the test. From portable devices to free apps, these are the eight best white noise machines of 2020—along with expert answers to your burning questions around the popular technological sleep aids.

What is a white noise machine?

A white noise machine is a device designed to drown out unwanted sounds that might keep you up at night, or trigger distraction during a deep sleep session. Sometimes they mimic nature sounds like waterfalls or wind, but the most popular sounds are uninterrupted white, pink, and brown noise—which vary in frequency, and allow “unwanted noises that do occur to become less noticeable and thus less disturbing,” explains Sam Nicolino, President and CEO of Adaptive Sound Technologies. “As an analogy, a tiny ink spot on a blank sheet of paper grabs your attention, but the same ink spot on a speckled sheet is not even seen.” So while you can’t control whether a horn honks or your partner starts snoring to high heavens, a white noise machine can help drown out surprise sounds and keep you snoozing through the night.

How do white noise machines work?

Back in the day, your family may have used a good ol’ fashioned fan to get to sleep, but these days there’s a range of white noise machines to consider—from new-age devices with electrically-generated sounds, to command-able smart speakers, to decades-old classics with tiny fans inside. “There are two types of white-noise machines–electronic and electromechanical,” says Steve Cummings of YogaSleep. “The former produces sounds with electronics (most are circuit boards), and electromechanical options have real physical parts, driven by electricity, that make the sound. In our case, there’s a real fan inside which resonates out of a dome-shaped shell.”

The plethora of machines on the market deliver a range of repeating or non-repeating sounds, and are available in different sizes, volumes, and price points. “The general theory is that sound machines, essentially, fill in the troughs of silence and minimize the startling effect by reducing the arousal effect of abrupt sounds,” says Cummings.

Where to buy white noise machines

Amazon has a wide selection of top-rated white noise machines, with thousands of impassioned reviewers detailing their best features (and shortcomings), and Bed Bath and Beyond is a good option if you’re looking to shop in-person.

Is a white noise machine good for babies?

Being a new parent comes with countless challenges, but getting your baby to fall (and stay) asleep might be the biggest one of all. A 1990 study on white noise and sleep induction found white noise can get babies to fall asleep faster, and some devices are designed with little ones in mind, such as the Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine and Night Light. Check with your pediatrician on recommended volumes for your child, and be prepared to keep the machine around for the long haul. “If you want to introduce a white noise machine into your baby’s bedtime routine, prepare to keep it around for 3-5 years,” pHd board certified sleep specialist Michael Breus advises. “Kids do not adapt well to change, so if you use a noise machine and they get used to it, you will need to bring it on trips, etc. It’s no different than a teddy bear.”

So, you’re ready to experience white noise for yourself. We tested and narrowed down the eight best options to shop now, based on various needs. Read Glamour editors’ takes on why these machines worked for them, and get ready for game-changing snoozes ahead.

Sleep is a $70 billion industry—we throw our money at a dreamier night’s rest, promise ourselves we’ll prioritize it, and then gripe when we’re still, inevitably, so tired. Despite our collective obsession with sleep, we seem totally unable to get more of it. In fact, we’re clocking fewer hours than ever. So, this month, we’re taking a look at what’s getting in the way—and what to do about it.

Prince Harry and Prince William’s Relationship Is Reportedly ‘Worse Than Ever’

If you thought Prince Harry and Prince William’s reunion at Westminster Abbey in early March was awkward, well, you might’ve been onto something.

The royal brothers’ relationship has allegedly been strained for quite some time, with Harry first addressing the gossip back in October 2019. “Inevitably stuff happens. But we’re brothers; we’ll always be brothers,” Harry said in a documentary. “We’re certainly on different paths at the moment. I’ll always be there for him and as I know, he’ll always be there for me. We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but I love him dearly.”

However, their tense relationship apparently continued until Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, announced in January 2020 they were stepping down from their senior royal duties and moving to Canada. “They didn’t leave on good terms by any means, but they are both relieved that it’s over,” a source told People in February. Sources also told the publication that the brothers were working on it by “talking more” over the phone.

Then, they reunited in England earlier this month, and we all saw how that turned out.

Since Harry returned to Canada, sources with The Daily Mail have reported that the rift between the brothers is “worse than ever.”

According to those sources, William is “insulted” by how Harry and Meghan have “implied criticisms of the royal family.” On the other hand, Harry is apparently “profoundly unhappy” and feels “he has been cut adrift by his own relatives.” Furthermore, he reportedly believes Meghan “was not made sufficiently welcome.”

Back in March of 2019, royals expert, Katie Nicholl attempted to break down Kate Middleton and Meghan’s relationship—which has faced similar feud rumors—to Glamour. “They quite quickly realized they were two pretty mature women—quite different women—and really the only thing they had in common was they’d married princes,” Nicholl said. “Not just Prince Harry, I think probably the world wanted them to become best friends.”

At the time, Nicholl went on to address the emotional distance between the two brothers. “I do think there is some truth to there having been some tension—not just between the duchesses but between the dukes, as well,” she said.

Luckily, the group will have another chance to come together sooner than we may have thought. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly accepted an invitation to spend the summer with the queen at her Balmoral estate. Perhaps the brothers and sisters-in-law will be able to make peace then.

Night Sweats: The Best Sleepwear Brands to Keep You Dry

I’ve never been a morning person, but dragging myself out of bed has gotten harder in recent years thanks to a fun new factor: night sweats. For the blissfully unfamiliar, let me tell you: it feels incredibly unpleasant to wake up clammy with chalk-outline-at-a-murder-scene type of sweat marks on your bed sheets.

Night sweats are often associated with middle-aged women going through menopause and while that’s a reality—an average of 27 million women experience menopause each year, and for 80%, the hormonal shift is symptomatic, per the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ 2016 findings—for many other women, myself included, they can be caused by a vast range of triggers. These include standard pain relievers, blood pressure medications, thyroid conditions, autoimmune diseases, the flu, alcohol, spicy foods, anxiety, your cycle—the list goes on. And, like so many afflictions that affect mostly women, we just aren’t talking about it. “Some studies suggest that although nighttime sweating can have a significant negative impact on sleep quality, and quality of life, it’s often under-reported to care providers,” says Dr. Katherine Revelle, MD, a psychiatrist based in New England.

Prescription meds for anxiety and depression—and, often, the anxiety itself—can cause night sweats as well, says Dr. Revelle. “Stress and anxiety leave us in a prolonged ‘fight or flight’ state, telling our nervous system to stay vigilant, including our sweat glands,” she explains. “Night sweats are a common side effect of anxiety disorders, as well as the medications used to treat them: Roughly 10% of patients taking SSRI’s, the most common class of antidepressant and anti-anxiety medications, experience night sweats.”

I’m probably among that minority of people taking SSRIs that deals with this particular side effect, though the effectiveness of the meds for helping manage and improve my anxiety and depression is valuable enough for me to continue taking them, but weighing the pros and cons is a personal choice. I’m willing to deal with the night sweats but I’ve taken to seeking out remedies that might make them less intense—including testing out the several sleepwear brands that promise to stop moisture in its tracks.

I wondered if certain fabrics, brands, or sleepwear silhouettes really help ultra-sweaty sleepers regulate body temperature and reduce perspiration. Are these just glorified loungewear made from fancy-sounding fibers or do they actually make a difference? Let’s find out.

Lara Smith, founder and CEO of Lusomé, a Canada-based sleepwear brand for night sweats, was inspired to launch the brand in 2014 because of her sister’s fraught sleep due to excessive sweating from chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. Smith spent two years working on the technology with a premium fabric mill famous for textile innovation for high-end technical sports brands. There are cozy, modest styles like piped tops and sleepshirts as well as saucier, lace- and mesh-trimmed options (strappy minidresses, tanks, and V necks). Now with over 35 styles available, its five core styles remain most popular, like its bestselling Donna PJ set. Those pants are one of my go-to’s because they have an ultra-comfortable fit, with a soft, wide elastic waistband and billowy wide legs. While I love how the matching top looks, the buttons tend to come undone while sleeping (or even just lounging around awake). So, if you’re on the bustier side, I suggest sticking to the brand’s pants and nighties, like a curve-skimming, 3/4 -sleeved, lace-trimmed, knee-length style that’s surprisingly sexy despite being so covered-up.

As for the science behind the sweat-free snoozing experience? “Our technology starts at the fiber stage with a very unique knitting technique, which causes a pull-push reaction, and as soon as moisture hits our fabric, there is a rapid pull-away from the skin surface through to the top of the fabric, where it is pushed away from the fabric into the air,” Smith explains.

This brand’s BambooDreams sleepwear collection is slightly more affordable than Lusomé. While some styles are similar—classic piped sets and shirt dresses, plus nightgowns with various lengths and sleeve options—Yala’s aesthetic is a bit more basic and functional. While Yala doesn’t have a proprietary material like Lusomé, the sustainability-focused brand’s sleepwear is made of a fiber known for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties: organic, sustainable bamboo which is transformed into viscose via a closed-loop process. “Viscose from bamboo is a naturally flowing fabric ideal for creating flattering, comfortable garments that move with you,” according to a rep for the brand. “It is soft, thin, and breathable. Unlike cotton, bamboo wicks moisture away from the body for comfort throughout the night.” How does it feel? Slinky and super-soft, with much more stretch than Lusome pieces, but also more sheerness. (Aka, you’ll want to throw on a robe or hoodie over Yala PJs before answering the door for your Seamless delivery to cover up nip exposure.) I also like the looser cut through the arms and hips of Yala’s nightgowns versus Lusome’s, comfier for both vegging for a Netflix binge and sleeping in.

A niche loungewear brand that’s definitely worth a try for sweaty sleeper is Saint Haven. While designed for those with ultra-sensitive skin, particularly eczema, the proprietary material is extremely soft, thin, and breathable, and helps minimize sweating while sleeping for me while also being a godsend for soothing my fickle, severe eczema (which, for me, worsens with perspiration, and at night). Many of Saint Haven’s designs are intended to be snug, though a couple styles, like the relaxed pant and T-shirt dress, have a looser, body-skimming fit. The mesh detailing, which trims the necklines, sleeves, and hems and pops up as a cool waistband inset on those pants, is a stylish detail that’s not as itchy or irritating as lace—and gets bonus points for providing a little extra airflow for sweaty slumbering. Initially, I worried the paper-thin material would wear out quickly and get beat up when laundered (I’m really not a hand-wash-only type of girl, especially for items that tend to get sweaty), but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how they’ve held up. Air-drying is ideal, though I honestly have forgotten to do so on a number laundry days, and the dryer hasn’t completely wreaked havoc, thankfully.

This hip loungewear label is perhaps best known for their slinky, stylish, machine washable silk PJs, and though I haven’t splurged on those (yet), their Cool Pima collection is most of interest for us sweaty slumbers. The Cool Pima pieces are enticingly billed as “like sleeping with an ocean breeze, a fan, and having someone else do your laundry — all in one.” I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of their muscle tee, which I’d call a tank top as sleepwear, workout garb, and versatile travel item. The insets under the pits add a subtle yet interesting design detail, and the higher neckline helps soak up neck sweat, which I find particularly pesky, whether working out or sleeping. There are matching shorts, too, though I personally find pants or nightgowns to be the most comfortable—the former can absorb any sleep sweat instead of my thighs or calves grossly sticking together, while the latter allows for max airflow—plus, Lunya’s shorts run too snug for my wider hips, resulting in a waistband annoyingly rides up and a pesky mid-slumber wedgie. I haven’t test-driven Lunya’s Cool Pima dress yet, but it’s next on my list of sweat-conquering PJs to try.

Miley Cyrus Is Sharing Hannah Montana Clips to Work Through Her Coronavirus Feelings

Like everyone else around the world, Miley Cyrus is figuring out how to navigate the current coronavirus/COVID-19 situation.

As more regulations are put into place around social distancing and isolation, she’s taken to posting old Hannah Montana clips to express her feelings—and, honestly, we love her for it. Everyone could use a little levity and nostalgia right now, and Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana is a welcome sight.

In the first clip, Cyrus is wearing a face mask and cleaning a bathroom when she freaks out over dirty clothes falling on her head. “Day 2 Quarantine. This is the REAL ME. RIGHT NOW. 😷🧼🧹🛀🦠🧽🧻,” Cyrus wrote in the caption. Her IRL boyfriend, Cody Simpson, commented, “She isn’t lying.”

Her second post included screenshots where Hannah says, “Did you see that? The new guy touched me. Didn’t anybody tell him? Hello! Never touch the star.” In the caption, Cyrus wrote, “Social Fucking Distancing. #HannahAlwaysKnowsBest”

Next, she dropped in a clip of an “emergency” shopping trip, but this time she had a more serious message for her fans and followers. “Be thoughtful. Respectful. Compassionate. HUMAN. while preparing for social distancing…. NO ONE needs every soup in the store, The more we hoard the more expensive and sparse necessities will become, leaving many without essentials,” the singer wrote. “This is a great time to practice restraint… it’s incredibly difficult to make smart decisions while panicking , but think twice before following the fear and being inconsiderate. There is enough to go around if we take care of one another. This is a beautiful time to LEAD!”

Finally, Cyrus posted a scene where Lilly (Emily Osment) has scrubbed down the Stewart home (including the plants!), much to the delight of Miley and her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, who played Robby Ray Stewart on the show. “Find yourself a Lilly …… #HannahMontanapredictedcoronavirus 🧽🦠😷🧹🧼🧻,” she wrote in the caption.

We can’t wait to see which clip Miley Cyrus posts next. Or maybe now would be a great moment to drop some new music?!?

Casey Wilson: In Times Like These, We Need More Reality Garbage Like Love Is Blind

It’s a stressful time right now. There’s a lot going on in the world that is problematic and troublesome. Not to mention the global pandemic. Everything is moving fast. We all feel busy and overwhelmed. Sometimes, life just feels like a series of uncomfortable moments strung together.

And yes, we all need to resist and work hard to make the world better. But there’s so much expected of us these days—especially women. So after a full day, I want nothing more than to relax into the loving arms of screaming women on reality TV. Watching these monstrous, majestic creatures yell at each other is soothing. Really.

I’ll always consider Bravo’s Real Housewives my form of self-care, but I’ve also gotten deeply involved with Love Is Blind on Netflix. I can’t even tell you what’s going on between that show and me lately. It’s too much. For someone else, it might be Love After Lock Up, 90 Day Fiancé, or The Bachelor. Whatever reality show you prefer, I don’t think you should be ashamed if that’s your outlet to recharge. Would I love it if meditation and journaling helped me de-stress? Sure. But in reality, I’m putting my kids to bed, settling in with a glass of wine, and turning on reality garbage.

It’s fun to care so passionately and deeply about something so meaningless and silly! I’ve been watching Real Housewives for decades. I know their full histories, and it feels like I’m a part of their families. I call them my weird drunk aunts.

There’s a bonding process that happens when you meet other fans, too. My friend and Bitch Sesh podcast co-host Danielle Schneider and I love the community our listeners have built. Major, major lifelong friendships have been developed over talking about women we don’t know. We post memes. We send each other information about what’s going on. Well, information is a strong word. It’s more like, “I saw Dorinda Medley walking down the street.” That’s it. It’s frivolous, sure, but it’s all we need to get a lift for the day.

Look at sports fanatics and nerd culture—it’s no different whatsoever. The reunions are my Superbowl, and I’m not going to be a reality TV apologist about it. It’s a way to connect with people when you might not have much to talk about beyond the weather. You can have a heated, passionate debate about Jessica from Love Is Blind and know there’s nothing behind it.
