13 Cellulite Treatments That Are Almost as Good as Hitting the Gym

Not so fun fact: Nearly 90 percent of all women have cellulite. You know, those annoying dimples on your thighs, butt and stomach (if you don't know what I'm talking about, consider yourself lucky). These dimples are caused by fat that pushes through the connective cords that attach your skin to your muscles (kind of like mesh).   See products

Eyebrow Extensions Were the Beauty-Treatment Highlight of My Year

Eyebrow extensions, which are similar to eyelash extensions, are popping up on salon menus across the country. We can blame the legions of celebs with thick-yet-perfectly-arched brows for making bold brows a must-have in recent years -- and probably for years to come.   read more

5 New Fiber Mascaras for Huge Lashes

Fiber mascara has been around for a while, but the formulas were lackluster. They were messy (imagine fibers sprinkled all over your face), extremely clumpy (not in a good way) and hard to remove.

8 New Beauty Products to Scoop Up This July

If I could only write about one category of beauty product for the rest of my career, it would be skin care. Which is why I'm so excited about the new products launching in July: There's a lot of skin care. From the best-selling cleansing oil in Korea (you'll be shocked to learn the brand) to a cooling, moisturizing cucumber mist you can pick up at Target to an overnight moisture mask made with snow mushroom, there are some fascinating skin care buys this month. You'll also find the prettiest new line of lip gloss, a gorgeous candle and so much more. Ready to shop? I certainly am.   read more

We Tried It: A Skin Care Device That Makes Wrinkles and Breakouts Disappear

I had the opportunity to experience the Ziip Nano Current Skin Care Device, $495, in the hands of its creator, electrical esthetician Melanie Simon, a few days after getting an acid-packed facial that made my skin break out. Up until that point, I'd been blissfully blemish-free for many months, making it even more embarrassing to meet Simon -- a facialist with a bevy of celebrity clients -- for the first time with a giant zit on both my chin and forehead.

Sarah Hyland's Must-Have Summer Product

If I were to describe Sarah Hyland in one word, it would be "energetic." ("Adorable" and "funny" are tied for a close second.) When I met up with the "Modern Family" actress to discuss her summer plans, she was barefoot, wearing a palm-printed romper and quite literally bouncing on the couch in a hotel room. (She said she'd had a lot of coffee.)   read more
