Blake Lively is drained and only has time for mois­tur­izer; not just for snack­ing, wa­ter­melon can ben­e­fit your skin, too; and a tat­too balm that will keep your ink from fad­ing in the sun.

Blake Lively is curled up with a blan­ket, pump­ing breast milk in a ho­tel room in Toronto. “I’m lit­er­ally drained—lit­er­ally!” she says, mo­tion­ing to the mech­a­nism hum­ming away, which is why mois­tur­izer is the only beauty prod­uct the mom of two has time for lately. She’s flown in to host the L’ORÉAL PARIS Women of Worth Awards Gala, an event that rec­og­nizes 10 Cana­dian women who are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in their com­mu­ni­ties through char­i­ta­ble causes. Lively is no stranger to pro­mot­ing causes her­self: She works with Child Res­cue Coali­tion and took to the streets of Wash­ing­ton, D.C., for the Women’s March back in Jan­uary. The ac­tress didn’t view the lat­ter as anti-Trump but rather as an oc­ca­sion to unite forces. “We are valu­able, equal and stand­ing up for our power, and I think that’s a re­ally beau­ti­ful thing.” When it comes to her own sense of self-worth, Lively’s has def­i­nitely evolved. “Now, more than ever, I’m hy­per-aware of cer­tain things that have hap­pened in my life that I’ve just ac­cepted be­cause I’m a woman,” she says. “I didn’t judge them or feel up­set by them [at the time] be­cause it’s just how it is. But I don’t want my daugh­ters to ex­pe­ri­ence that.” —Lesa Han­nah
