Orange peel skin, cottage cheese thighs ... no matter what food item or snack you try to associate it with, cellulite still sucks. And the majority of us feel the pain -- about 80 percent of women (of every age and every size) have some form of cellulite on their thighs, butts, legs and arms. What's a girl to do? We talked to Dr. Whitney Bowe, a dermatologist in New York City, who revealed why we're plagued with skin dimples in the first place and what we can do about it. Here, what works, what doesn't and everything else you need to know about getting a smoother tush and thighs. read more
Whoever said that puns are the lowest form of humor never saw these clever tattoos. If they had, they would have to revise that quote, replacing "puns" with "tattoo puns." These are the clever and funny tattoos that commemorate more than just a memory or a loved one -- these tattoos are a test of wit. Can you decipher them all? read more
I'm not sure why I didn't take notice when Jergens' breakthrough BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream came out last year -- when women were paying three times the retail price on eBay/selling their first-born children to get the stuff. I guess I was too busy smearing diluted tinted moisturizer on my legs. (It's just for special occasions! Don't judge me!) Suffice it to say when word of this body BB cream came my way, I was intrigued. I've spent so many cumulative hours trying to elevate this mug of mine from "blotchy Northern European pale-face" to "Christina Hendricks alabaster" that taking a few seconds to apply a tone-enhancing, skin-perfecting product on my body seemed completely appropriate. read more
Heat and humidity, be damned: After what goes down as the worst winter in our memory, we're spending every last second outdoors this summer. And we're not even going to complain about the furnace-like temperatures or the melt-in-a-puddle mugginess that makes us feel less beach babe and more swamp monster. read more
You may be trying to achieve the perfect orange lip, or demolish the entire new season of "Orange Is The New Black" in one sitting, but self-tanners that leave you carrot colored are one type of orange trend no one is on board with. See guide
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, she recommends "a higher SPF (30 or above) and a water-resistant formulation." She also suggests choosing a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone or mexoryl as its active ingredient. See sunscreens
Tattoos tell a story. Sometimes, that story is really meaningful -- such as when they commemorate a lost loved one, a battle won or lost, or a special moment in the wearer's life. Sometimes that story is a work of art, one that an artist labored over for months, or even years, before it was perfected. And still other times, tattoos tell stories that leave us cringing or scratching our head. These are those times. read more
Breakouts can put a damper on just about anything, but they're especially loathsome in the summertime. Spot treatments and expert concealing can help camouflage the red bumps on your nose, but it gets exponentially harder to cover up body blemishes in hard-to-reach spots like your back. read more
Summertime means shorts, and shorts mean baring those ghostly pale winter legs you've been hiding beneath jeans all season. Rather than turning to a tanning bed this season, give your skin a boost of color the healthy way with one of these new self-tanners. But before you start grumbling about acrid smells, Oompa Loompa color or obvious-from-a-mile-away streaks, think again. These new instant self-tanners and gradual self-tanners are nothing like the old products you've tried and thrown out in the past. Some of the best self-tanners for face and body in years have hit the market recently -- products that work overnight, last for weeks and even (if you can believe it) smell as good as regular lotions. read more
Plastic surgery isn't exactly a small undertaking. Unlike Botox, which fades over time, plastic surgery is considered permanent. It's a once-and-you're-done procedure -- a smart long-term investment, which is why those of us willing to go under the knife will swallow the hefty price tag. But, as it turns out, a nip and tuck meant to erase the hands of time can defy age for only so long. And, often, patients who thought their first procedure would be their last find themselves shelling out for a tune-up. According to Chicago board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Geldner, M.D., so-called plastic surgery revisions may be inevitable -- because no one, not even your surgeon, can say whether your procedure will stand the test of time. "You cannot predict what will happen. We take you as you are now, and we change you as you are now," says Geldner. read more
