FYI: You're Showering All Wrong

My showers usually fall on either end of a spectrum: they're either super short (like hop in, do one turn under the running water and hop out) or ridiculously drawn out blocks of contemplation -- drawn out to the point that I start getting lightheaded and I risk ending up unconscious, passed out on the shower floor. Turns out, both of these are doing a number on my hair and beauty routine.   read more


Solve Your Winter Skin Problems -- Stat!

When the weather turns from sunny and mild to cold and blustery, our skin often turns too -- from supple and hydrated to cracked, flaky and ashy. We know that adding moisture-infused products to our skin will help hydrate it. We also know (and have heard a thousand times) that in the winter we usually need to switch from lighter moisturizers to more intensely hydrating ones, right? Right.   See skin problems


7 Secrets to French Women's Flawless Skin

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by the glamour that seems to come from simply being French. I always went straight for my mom's Chanel lipstick when playing dress up -- sorry, mom. And I never got tired of watching "Sabrina" where one trip to Paris (and a jaw dropping collection of Givenchy gowns) transforms Audrey Hepburn from the less-than-glamorous chauffeur's daughter into a knockout.   read more


Your Makeup-Removing Wipe Just Got a Makeover


Your Makeup-Removing Wipe Just Got a Makeover

Let's be honest: after a typical, jam-packed busy day, how many times have you run a wet washcloth over your face before bedtime and thought, "Too. Tired. To wash." ? Or maybe you spend a good 15 minutes washing, scrubbing and cleansing the last stubborn bits of makeup off ... only to wake up with raccoon eyes anyway.   read more


No Animals Harmed: 7 Most Bizarre Beauty Treatments

When shopping for beauty products, we tend to look for a few key words on a bottle's label -- namely ones that assure us the product we're about to use has been tested on humans, not animals. But beauty treatments involving live animals? That's a whole different story.   read more


Lethal Beauty Product Combos

Really, who doesn't have "combination" skin? I'm not talking about T-zones or the amount of oil one's skin produces. I'm talking about the battalion of products the average woman needs to combat her myriad of skin problems. When you've got wrinkles, breakouts, age spots and chapped lips at the same time, it's hard not to pile on a slew of products aimed at fighting different skin issues. But according to New York City dermatologist Jeannette Graf, M.D., assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center, the concoction of products we layer on our face may not be the best recipe for great skin -- in fact, it could be a recipe for disaster (kind of like the time you blew up the living room with your chemistry set).   read more


The Right Skin Care for Every Age

When it comes to skin care, most of us fall into one of two camps. There are those of us who never change our routine, using the same ill-suited face wash and moisturizer from our high school days. Then there's the other group, who embrace treatments like Botox and acid peels before there's a wrinkle in sight.   Find your regime


Your Beauty Dream Team: Nighttime Facial Masks

If you're anything like me, you love your eight hours a night (okay, seven … on a good day), but you wish you could function with less. All that time spent horizontal just seems so, well, unproductive. If sleep came in capsule form, I'd take it.   read more


10 Best -- and Worst -- Celebrity Beauty Brands

It's one thing when a celebrity endorses a brand. They sign on for a year or two, and their eerily airbrushed photos appear in magazine ads. They tell us in the beauty press about their favorite lotion or whatever the product line might be, but when the contract ends, POOF. They move on to the next big deal and I'm left thinking, "Maybe she didn't like that lotion after all …"   read more


Acne Sharpshooters: New Recruits in the War on Pimples

One thing's for sure: acne is a major drag. Whether it's one giant zit or a cluster of breakouts, there's no silver lining about it.   read more
