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
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
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
If a facial peel still makes you think of that "SATC" episode where Samantha has to hide her red, blistering face behind a veil, it's time to reconsider. Most new peels have minimal downtime, and there are even at-home peel pads that make skin look instantly better. read more
You probably already know that retinol is one of the best anti-aging ingredients in your skin care arsenal. read more
Even though we take our skin care very seriously, slathering on every kind of SPF you can think of, sometimes even the most cautious still get burned -- leaving our skin begging for sunburn treatments that bring instant relief. We have a long list pool parties to attend this summer, after all, and can't let a sunburn put a damper on fun. read more
It's time for you to get acquainted with oxygen masks (no, not the kind on airplanes), aka bubble masks. You apply them to your face while they're in a cream or gel state, and they snap, crackle, pop into a foaming masterpiece that gives your skin a boost of anti-aging oxygen. Consider these masks CPR for dull, tired and aging skin. read more

Dealing with acne as an adult is like a cruel joke. Shouldn't acne be something you leave in your past, along with scrunchies and bad taste in boys? And I'm not talking about the monthly hormonal zit or two. I see bright red pimples and inflamed cysts all over my face, all year round. Read her diary
When it comes to the art of face washing, we ladies take it pretty seriously. We carefully select our skin care products and practically give ourselves a facial twice a day. We do this ritual in the morning to look and feel refreshed and awake (even when we likely get less than six hours of sleep). And then we wash the day off of our faces in the evening, removing all traces of makeup, as well as any dirt and excess oil. See cleansers
