The last thing you want to hear in your head after slathering on a self-tanner is that Oompa-Loompa song. We've all been duped by too-orange self-tanners, no? Nothing's worse than trying to do the right thing by avoiding the sun and arduously applying a lotion, cream, foam, gel or spray to your body, only to wind up with dark elbows and streaky legs.

"Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn't if it had a neck." So said the late Nora Ephron in her best-selling memoir, "I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman". read more
What causes acne, how to prevent acne from forming, and how to treat existing acne are three of the most mystifying issues in dermatology today. That's because acne can be influenced by such a weird amalgamation of factors -- from major influences like lifestyle, heredity and stress down to seemingly insignificant details like what you pour over your cereal in the morning. Here's everything we know about acne and how to cure it, from the foods that cause acne to pimple home remedies to antibiotics for acne. read more
Pinterest is great for many things: finding braid inspiration; planning your fantasy wedding; reading motivational fitness quotes; scoping out your next DIY project. But just because you saw it on Pinterest doesn't mean it's a good idea -- in fact, some of those beauty DIYs can seriously damage your skin. read more
If you think that face masks are nonessential, luxurious treats for your skin, you're about to get schooled. According to celebrity aesthetician Sonya Dakar, a face mask is "an integral part of a regular skin care regimen." Whether you're looking to fill out fine lines, rehydrate parched skin or detox congested pores, face masks are the secret weapon that takes your results to a new level, explains Dakar. read more
On the street, we call it chicken skin. But in the dermatologist's office, they call it Keratosis Pilaris (KP) -- pronounced "Pie-LAIR-is," like the "pie" you eat and the "air" you breathe. Odds are you're familiar with this skin condition: KP consists of those little red bumps that commonly speckle the back of the arms and thighs, and it effects a whopping 40 percent of the population. Though it's not a dangerous or painful condition, KP is an international enemy purely for its stubbornness -- medical science has yet to find a cure. read more
Hybrids are everywhere: The freeway, the grocery store (tangelo, anyone?) and, now, in our skin-care routine. Melting cleansers give us the best of both worlds: An easy-to-apply gel makeup remover that transforms into a cleansing oil that rinses away as a silky milk. read more
Botox has been around for a long time -- long enough that it's regarded as a normal, not-so-crazy procedure. Once associated with Beverly Hills housewives, Botox is now a procedure that someone you know probably gets -- or maybe you've considered yourself. read more
We've all been there: You glance into a mirror and you're suddenly shocked by the scary state of your skin. Spurred into action by your crossover into bad skin territory, you book the first facial appointment available. Surely, an hour on the table in some able aesthetician's hands will get you back to glowing. You zone out while your aesthetician slathers blissful-smelling concoctions on your face, with visions of clear, lit-from-within skin dancing in your head. You're so relaxed, you barely even remember swiping your credit card and being steered out the door. When you break out a few days later, you wonder: Is it a coincidence? Am I just purging? Or did I put my skin into the hands of a bad aesthetician? read more
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
