Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is best known for leopard prints, but he also has a reputation as a stereotypical Italian ladies' man -- and he revels in that persona. So when he set out to develop a new fragrance for his eponymous brand, sex appeal was his first priority. "A woman should be confident -- and smell confident," says Cavalli.

Of course you know you should go to the derm once a year (and we can't stress enough how important it is), but a recent study found that 60 percent of women have actually never been to a skin doctor. And unless they have a serious problem or concern, they may never make an appointment -- even if they aren't happy with their skin care routine.
To help women who need basic skin care advice, DDF invented a new special device called the Skin Evaluation System. It attaches to an iPhone and takes photos of the skin at a microscopic level. The photos are then assessed by a computer program, which suggests the best treatment regimen.
