From mindfulness apps to diet hacks, New York’s grounded gurus have a wealth of wellness knowledge to share.
Golnar and Haleh Abivardi Dentists and vVardis founders
In the age of bathroom shelfies, leveling up your dental hygiene game is an essential. Enter ultrachic Swiss dentalcare line vVardis. Founded by dentists (and superstylish sisters) Golnar and Haleh Abivardi, the buzzybrand takes a holistic approach to dental hygiene. Instead of toxic plastic bleach trays, think naturally whitening treatments that you brush on to strengthen enamel. Clearly the queens of a clean routine, we asked the savvy sisters to share their self-care snapshot.
