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

22 Best Toners and Astringents

Everyone likes a good debate, right? Coffee lovers argue with tea aficionados on what's a better source of caffeine; children fight over the virtues of chocolate versus vanilla ice cream; and in this office, we have lively discussions (alright, they're fights) about toners: Do they play a critical role in a skin care regimen or are they an unnecessary step in the cleanse-tone-moisturize process?   See products

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

11 Best At-Home Microdermabrasion Products

Are you familiar with mircodermabrasion? Microdermabrasion uses physical exfoliation to help slough away the top layer of skin to give it a healthy glow and help increase cell turnover. Have you been to a spa or dermatologist's office for a microdermabrasion treatment? If so, you may have loved how each and every dead skin cell was removed and noticed softer skin, fewer fine lines and even a reduction in acne. Microdermabrasion can benefit oily or dry skin, but those with sensitive skin should proceed with caution.   See products

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

17 Best Body Scrubs

We love a rich, moisturizing body scrub. Unfortunately, exfoliating in the shower can take circus-like stability to avoid slipping on the layer of oil that many body scrubs leave all over the tub. That's why an excellent scrub must have great balance, too: the right ratio of skin-sloughing and moisturizing elements, and an amazing fragrance that's not too strong, energizing, and still relaxing enough to feel like you've stepped into a luxury spa. Sound like a tall order? That's why only 17 scrubs made the cut. Click through to see which reader-reviewed products stood up to the challenge.   See reviews

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
