Bad Skin Got You Down? I Give You Full Permission to Use My Go-To Skin Imperfection Fix Bad Skin Got You Down? I Give You Full Permission to Use My Go-To Skin Imperfection Fix

The best thing about being a woman of "a certain age" is that I don't get zits anymore. Gone are the battles with blemishes and, for that, I'm totally stoked. What I'm not particularly tickled by, however, is how all of a sudden the years of havoc I've wreaked on my skin are starting to take their toll. My complexion is mottled as a result of too many hours clocked baking in the sun. I honestly…

2010 Emmys: Here's the Celebrity Makeup Look I Liked Best -- Which Star's Style Do You Think Rocked? 2010 Emmys: Here's the Celebrity Makeup Look I Liked Best -- Which Star's Style Do You Think Rocked?

More than any other self-congratulatory Hollywood shindig, I love watching the Emmys. Of course, it's entertaining to see what everyone's wearing and to make fun of the fashion don'ts (unfortunately I'm talking to you January Jones -- sorry) but, because I write about TV for a living, I have a semi-vested interest in who actually wins.

Oh, and it was a good thing that, with all that zigging and zagging going on, she kept her hair and makeup low key. And I have to say; I'm loving the…

What's Your Beauty Phobia? The Treatment that Freaks Me Out Is ... What's Your Beauty Phobia? The Treatment that Freaks Me Out Is ...

When it comes to putting myself in uncomfortable or awkward positions in the pursuit of maintaining a modicum of attractiveness, I'm a trooper. I've had injections, lasers wielded at my face, hot wax smeared on places hot wax really doesn't belong and my body pummeled by a Brazilian deep tissue aficionado who is clearly a sadist.
