17 DIY Bath Bomb Recipes to Revolutionize Your Bath Time

We all love Lush bath bombs, but we're also well-acquainted with the fact that they can get expensive -- which is where DIY comes in, of course. It turns out that it's actually pretty easy to make your own bath bombs -- most are made with baking soda and citric acid (which is what makes it so satisfyingly fizzy) and not much more. Plus, with dozens of aromatic essential oils to choose from (not to mention fun add-ons, like cosmetic grade glitter and dried flowers), there's a ton of room for customization. That said, you can basically create the DIY bath bomb of your dreams with a little practice... and once you've perfected it, you can start gifting it to all your friends.   read more


7 Reasons Your New Vaginal Care Regimen Is Dangerously Nuts

Our vaginas are dirtier, smellier and more toxin-filled than ever -- or at least that's what the personal-care industry leads us to believe. A quick Google search can acquaint you with more vaginal cleansing products and treatments than you probably knew existed. You can make your vagina smell like fruits and flowers with deodorizing washes, sprays, wipes and suppositories; clean it with probiotic douches; "detoxify" it with herbal sachets; balance its "hormonal levels" with a steam treatment; and "clear" your "chi pathways" by sticking a jade egg in it.   read more


9 Products That Are Better Than a Butt Lift

Neck Hair Is the New Thing the Internet Wants You to Be Self-Conscious About

Women's body hair has been on the table for discussion and analysis -- as well as the pressure to do something with it -- pretty much since the dawn of time. Specifically, the female form in many ancient cultures has historically been shown as fully hairless from the eyebrows down. In ancient Egypt, shaving (with a sharp piece of flint, yikes) and sugaring were the preferred methods of hair removal, and in the Middle Ages, European women removed their eyebrows and forehead hair to create a larger brow.   read more

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


10 Products for Totally Pain-Free Hair Removal

Beauty routines should be as restorative and fun as they are necessary -- after all, there's a deep satisfaction in selecting a lipstick to pull together your look or patting in your beloved serums at the end of a long day. Even the not-so-glamorous process of using a nose strip to clear out your pores can be oddly satisfying, if just slightly off-putting.   read more
