The Only 5 Makeup Items You Should Have in Your Purse -- Ever

Whether it's an overnight bag or the moving box marked "kitchen utensils," my over-packing problem is one that no amount of duct tape (or therapy) can fix. This everything-but-the-kitchen-sink mentality overflows into my beauty habits as well. It doesn't matter if I'm going for a natural, no-makeup, makeup look or full glam; my handbag still ends up crammed full of just about every product I own. To ward off the early stages of Poshitis (also known as heavy handbag syndrome), I took my problem to the experts to find out how to touch up my look on the go without getting weighed down.   read more

12 Best Sunscreens -- and the 4 Worst

Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is a must for all of us. And according to Heidi Waldorf, M.D., of Waldorf Dermatology & Laser Associates in Nanuet, NY, we need "an SPF of at least 15 daily."

She also suggests choosing a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone or mexoryl as its active ingredient.   See sunscreens

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

Study: You Can be Obese and Still be Super Healthy

13 Ways to Work Messy Bedhead Hair

It takes a special kind of gal to wake up in the morning, give her hair a quick fluff or twist and head out the door looking genuinely hot. Most of us would get a sympathetic look, an inquiry about our general health or possibly a request to undergo a drug test. That's because that just-rolled-out-of-bed hair usually translates to just-rolled-off-a-garbage-truck hair in real life. But what if you could make bedhead work for, not against you? What if you could take that natural-texture, cool-fuzziness thing you've got going on in the A.M. and make it look chic -- without a lot of fuss? Try these quick styles and little tweaks for making the most of your slept-in locks.   read more

What to Look for in a Sports Bra

When it comes to taking care of your girls, it's important to pick a sports bra that helps you fight the bounce to reduce discomfort and long-term sagging. Breasts are held up by the surrounding skin and a web of springy coils known as Cooper's ligaments. With time, these ligaments no longer help your breasts rebound as nicely as you'd like due to jumping, gravity and genetics. To maximize comfort and minimize this unattractive drooping effect, check out these basic guidelines for choosing a sports bra so you can confidently make the right decision, and then head over to Dick's Sporting Goods online to check out a huge selection of styles available this season!   read more
