Editors' Pick: 12 Best Foundations

Finding the best foundation can feel a bit like winning the lottery. More so than any other beauty product, foundation can make or break your entire look -- and the trial and error process to find the right formula can be arduous. Got oily skin? You need matte coverage that stays put all day. Mature skin requires something lightweight and dewy that won't cake or settle into fine lines.   read more

20 Best Soaps

Soap was probably the first beauty item you were ever introduced to. But what defines the soap of the new millennium? Considering its humble beginnings in the Roman bathhouses of 312 B.C., when soap was made out of goat's tallow, wood ashes and salt, we've come a long way. Now we've got bars that massage, exfoliate, soothe, moisturize and make you smell heavenly (aka, nothing like wood ashes).   Get soap

15 Best Bronzers

We know sunbathing, tanning beds and even spray tanning can cause some serious skin issues, but does that mean we're doomed to be pale and pasty forever? Not a chance. There's still one safe way to get that golden glow, and it's in your makeup bag: bronzer.   See bronzers

12 Best Sunscreens -- and the 2 Worst

Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is a must for all of us. And according to Heidi Waldorf, M.D., of Waldorf Dermatology & Laser Associates in Nanuet, NY, we need "an SPF of at least 15 daily." For prolonged sun exposure (anything more than the incidental exposure you might get from driving or working near a window), she recommends an SPF of 30 above with a water-resistant formula. She also suggests choosing a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone or mexoryl as its active ingredient.   See sunscreens

14 Best Facial Masks

It's hard to deny the satisfying experience of a spa treatment. The feeling of pampering yourself and giving your skin some much needed TLC. The pleasure of relaxation and allowing your mind, body and soul the chance to escape from reality -- for a few minutes, at least. Massages, hot tubs and aromatic meditation rooms all rank high on the self-indulgence scale, but spoiling yourself with a full-blown beauty treatment takes the cake. And one of the best ways to treat your skin (while still enjoying a little time off) is with face masks.   read more

10 Best Eczema Treatments Under $14

Anyone who suffers from eczema knows how tricky it is to find a product that will provide more than just temporary relief.

9 Best Self-Tanners

The last thing you want to hear in your head after slathering on a self-tanner is that Oompa-Loompa song. We've all been duped by too-orange self-tanners, no? Nothing's worse than trying to do the right thing by avoiding the sun and arduously applying a lotion, cream, foam, gel or spray to your body, only to wind up with dark elbows and streaky legs.   See products

12 Best Products for Curly Hair

Those of us with curly hair know it can be both a blessing and a curse. When it behaves, nothing's better than having a head full of perfect ringlets or waves that cascade over your shoulders. But when it's acting ornery or piqued -- look out. Thirsty, frizzy, stressed-out curls are never pretty. And when we try to wrestle those same misbehaving curls into submission, it only makes things worse. (Because, really, the only thing that looks worse than fried curls are fried curls that have been further fried in an attempt to make them behave.)   Best curl products

13 Best Summer Hair Care Products -- and the 2 Worst

Summer is an invitation for a more lackadaisical approach to hair. (Hallelujah!) It means letting bangs grow out, letting hair air-dry, getting beachy waves from actually going to the beach and covering up unwashed summer hair with floppy hats. But with the season also comes certain summer hair hazards, like chlorine, UV rays, salt water and humidity -- all of which can lead to pool-hair, fried scalps and frizzy, dried-out, damaged strands.   See products
