Your Top 10 Natural Beauty Wishes -- Granted

Recently we posed this question in a blog post: What Three Wishes Would You Ask Your Natural Beauty Genie For? (Well, If One Actually Existed.) We got an overwhelming amount of responses from you. There were surprisingly lots of feet-related wishes (go figure), but unsurprisingly a ton of perfect-skin requests. As we scrolled through the comments, we were nodding and agreeing right along with you. Some actually even made us tear up (OK, we may have been PMSing, but nonetheless), like this one:   See wishes granted

Summer Beauty Makeovers

On a recent Saturday morning three moms walked into the Argyle Salon and Spa on Los Angeles' famed Sunset Strip. And, while the celeb-centric spot welcomes hundreds of clients through its mahogany doors six days a week, these three were different -- none had taken the time to "maintain" their naturally good looks or spent money on being primped, in a long, long time.   See makeovers

America's 8 Ugliest Cities

To determine who's the ugliest of them all, we looked at many studies and opinion polls on said undesirable qualities, from our own surveys like the Eight Cities with the Ugliest Guys (which considers how much sex the locals might not be having) to sources like Travel and Leisure Magazine, the American Fitness Index, U.S. News and World Report, Sperling's Best Places, Gallup, Men's Health and Forbes.com. We also looked up the birthplaces and residences of the ugliest celebrities named by The Good Surgeon Guide, AOL and by us in our personal list of ugly celeb guys. (To those who say, "but that's just, like, your opinion, man," we say, "okay, celebrities are usually somewhat attractive ... but have you SEEN these people?")   See list

Easiest Ways to Reduce Stress and Body Tension

Let's start with the obvious assertion that the world we live in is a hectic and overwhelming place. Now let's move on to the less appropriate reaction we often have to this frenzied existence: total freak-out, meltdown, why-me?, fists-banging-on-the-floor tantrums that are scarily as reckless as Britney Spears shaving her head (a health and beauty cry for help that landed her, among other celebrities, in The Biggest Beauty Blunders of All Time photo gallery). Or, even more dramatic, we suffer from depression, over eating, insomnia and a host of other serious side effects from the heart-attack king known as "stress."

Wedding Day Beauty Countdown

It seems the second that princess-cut diamond is slipped on your finger you're expected to launch into full-force bridal mode. Well-meaning friends and family ask you about the date, venue, and of course, the dress. To say it's overwhelming would be a huge understatement.   See countdown

A Beauty Fan's Guide to Facebook

Ah Facebook, perhaps one of the greatest websites ever created, well besides TotalBeauty.com (of course) -- shameless, we know. Started by some computer science nerds at Harvard, the little-social-networking-site-that-could quickly expanded to become everyone's favorite destination for distraction. People love it for a variety of reasons, which is probably why it has been such a huge cultural phenomenon. Where else can you keep up with friends and family, spy on ex-boyfriends, network or even see how many pounds the prom queen gained since high school? Whether you joined to build virtual farms (no judgment), or if you're like us and just wanted another place to gab about beauty products and makeup trends; you aren't alone in your obsessive adoration of the site.   See pages
