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

The harsh reality is, UVA and UVB rays are dangerous to everybody, no matter how dark your complexion is. And where more serious consequences like skin cancer are concerned, dark-skinned people may be at an even greater risk.   read more

The 15 Sunscreen Mistakes You're Making

Raise your hand if you've ever gotten an embarrassing, lobster-like sunburn or a dorky farmer's tan. Yup, us too. What about having tanorexic tendencies by soaking up the sun any chance you get and/or hitting up the tanning bed for that insta-bronze and rush of endorphins? Check.

Must-Have Products to Make Pores Do a Disappearing Act

Poor pores. Even though they're essential for a healthy complexion (they release protective oils onto the surface of your skin), we like to think we'd be better off without them.
