5 Revolutionary Anti-Aging Products That Won a Nobel Prize

Beauty editor confession: I'm a huge skeptic when it comes to beauty products. Why? I've been duped too many times by the lure of pretty packaging and over-the-top claims. It's an unfortunate fact that sometimes labels exaggerate. I've never met a foundation that truly lasts 24 hours, a zit-zapper that gets rid of pimples overnight or a split-ends salve that magically repairs damaged strands.   read more


The Only Way Ever to Apply Your Skin Care Products

What comes first? Forget the chicken and the egg, we're talking about our skin care products, like serum, moisturizer, face oil and sunscreen. A cabinet full of products to keep you blemish-, wrinkle- and sun spot-free means nothing if you don't know in what order to apply them. Instead of slapping them on and crossing our fingers, we conducted a skin care nerd-out session with board certified dermatologists Dendy Engelman, M.D., and Craig Kraffert, M.D., who is also the president of Korean skincare line Amarté. We grilled them to find out which products should be applied first, last and everywhere in between so that they can perform exactly as they're supposed to. Here, these derms school us in the exhaustive process of layering skin care.   read more


Can You Really Get Rid of Crow's Feet?

It's happened to all of us: That one fateful morning when you wake up, catch yourself in the mirror and notice a pair of crow's feet -- those telltale wrinkles that branch out from the corners of your eyes. Welp, it finally happened, you say to yourself, deciding whether to accept your crinkly lines or start obsessively Googling how to get rid of crow's feet.   read more


Your City is Giving You Wrinkles

I think about pollution every day. I really think about it when I run outside (which I do three or four mornings a week). Next to a highway. In Manhattan. While I'm diligent about applying an antioxidant serum and sunscreen before I run (even if it's cloudy in the middle of February), according to a recent study published in the "Journal of Investigative Dermatology," that's not enough. Pollution is giving me wrinkles.   read more


13 Turmeric Face Mask Recipes for Clear, Glowy Skin

You know a skin care ingredient has star power when beauty products start including it in the name, rather than just the ingredient list. Such is the Cinderella story of turmeric, an ingredient long used in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-inflammatory properties, but little utilized in Western skin treatments until recently. It's popping up in high-end, luxe-feeling beauty products like Kiehl's Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Exfoliant Mask, Skin Authority Beauty Infusion Turmeric & Blueberry for Brightening and Juara Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask.   read more


How to Get Rid of Acne Scars for Good

The ABCs of Anti-Aging

You know those stories about the latest, greatest breakthroughs and research into anti-aging -- the ones that make you feel like you need a masters degree in chemistry, biology and dermatology to understand? This isn't one of them. Because creating an amazing anti-aging skin care regimen isn't about knowing every nuance behind the science of anti-aging. It's about distilling all of the research and how-to tips out there into a plan that suits you -- a plan that fits your life and your unique skin care needs.   read more


7 Secret-Weapon Ingredients For Making Your Skin Glow

Alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids are the workhorses of your skin care routine. They exfoliate dull skin and fade imperfections, minus scratchy microbeads. Pretty much everyone can benefit from having acid in her routines -- but you shouldn't pick just any ol' AHA cleanser. If you wanna get nerdy about it, the various alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids (like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid and malic acid) work differently on a molecular level, and choosing which one to use can make or break your skin. We asked Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., a Washington, D.C.-based dermatologist, to decode some of the most common AHAs and BHAs and tell which one you should be using.   read more


10 Anti-Aging Face Oils for Youthful, Radiant Skin

We sometimes look a little crazy in our quest to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. (Be honest: How many times have you scared your husband wearing a sheet mask?) The latest trend in anti-aging is a little less Hannibal Lector and a lot more subtle: anti-aging face oils. While face oils have been around for a while, the latest crop promises to provide more than superior hydration. Namely, they promise to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm your skin and generally make you look so glowy and youthful you could be mistaken for a member of Taylor Swift's squad.   read more


Add This Ingredient to Your Nightly Skin Care Routine Now

You know all about antioxidants. Wearing one every day is almost as important as applying SPF. Antioxidants protect your skin from free-radical damage by scooping up wayward electrons that would otherwise attack your cells (and result in the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which leads to wrinkles and sagging). But that's old news.   read more
