9 New Beauty Products You Have to Get Your Hands On In September

Every time September rolls around, I'm filled with mixed emotions. There's the inevitable sadness that ros&‌egrave; season is coming to an end, but then there's that "back-to-school" excitement that comes with the start of a new season. And even though I'm long past actually going back to school, those September vibes always make me want to stock my beauty stash with lots of fresh new goodies. Conveniently, September is when most companies launch their fall products, so there's no shortage to choose from. I narrowed it down to nine, including (spoiler alert) everything from brightening eye patches that work in minutes to a liquid liner like you've never seen before. Forget the pens and pencils, this is the kind of shopping you should be doing this month.   read more

Everything You Need to Know About Chemical Peels

If you've never had a chemical peel, you might imagine it would make your skin look like beef carpaccio a la Samantha in "Sex and the City." But the truth is, chemical peels have come a long way in the last 15 years. "You used to have redness for three to four weeks," says Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon Taylor Pollei, MD, of Lasky Skin Center. Now, thanks to buffering ingredients and customizable treatments, there's minimal downtime. "Even though you're peeling, exfoliating, and flaking... you can still get out and about and do your thing. That's different from the peels I used in the past," he says.   read more

How to Get Your Flip-Flop-Battered Feet Pretty Again

How Becoming a Beauty Editor Taught Me to Embrace My Makeup-Free Face

There I sat, a 25-year-old beauty editor living in the fashion and beauty capital of the world, looking at my profile picture and briefly wondering if I'd really go through with it. There once was a time not too long ago when the idea of posting my bare face to Instagram -- land of unrealistic beauty standards and perfectly Facetuned Insta-models -- was unthinkable. No-makeup selfies were for celebrities with perfect skin only. At least, that's how I felt. But, like I said, that was then, so I proudly pressed 'post' -- and felt no regret. You see, nowadays, I have a genuine belief that beauty isn't so much about unicorn highlighters and a perfect cut crease (though I love those too). When I look in the mirror, what I regard as beautiful is a strong sense of self and an appreciation for my natural features. I hope one day this will be the accepted and appreciated norm for all women.   read more
