Happy Wednesday! Welcome back to our Take 5 column, where we invite you to take a hump-day break with the week’s most revitalizing lifestyle stories. Ready for a breather?

Take 1: If you got a little lazy with the sunscreen last weekend

These at-home skin peeling remedies from SheFinds are a game changer. Don't be fooled—your August base tan isn't enough to protect you from the sun's powerful UV rays. Try olive oil, aloe vera, or an oatmeal bath to soothe your sunburn and beat the flake. 

Take 2: If you think the Kanye/Taylor feud will never get old

IKEA is giving Kanye a taste of his own medicine, and it'll make your day. After the rapper inadvertently propositioned IKEA by way of a BBC Radio 1 interview on Monday, the design store's Australian branch fired back with a cheeky response: "Hey Kanye, we’d love to see what you’d create… We could make you famous!"

Take 3: If you already finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

It's not over yet: There's a Harry Potter Go game in the works, because no '90s revival would be complete without a little HP. Called "Magic," the makers of Pokémon Go decided to appease fans everywhere and create a Harry Potter version of the game. Can't. Wait.

Take 4: If you always let your avocados go bad

Thanks to Australian company Naturo Technologies, brown avocados are now a thing of the past. Dubbed the Natavo Zero, the machine essentially uses steam to turn off the oxidation process that turns your avocados brown. A true game changer.

Take 5: If you're still on the waiting list for rosé gummies

Thanks to Caroline Pirozzolo at SheFinds, you can cut to the chase and learn how to make them yourself. Start off by ordering these gummy bear molds from Amazon, and follow the surprisingly simple recipe here.

Your afternoon pick-me-up:

Try adding a little pea protein to your daily green juice. Packed with amino acids and without lactose or whey, pea protein is the latest trend in drinkable superfoods. Pick up a carton here
