8 New Beauty Products to Scoop Up This July

If I could only write about one category of beauty product for the rest of my career, it would be skin care. Which is why I'm so excited about the new products launching in July: There's a lot of skin care.

12 Best Sunscreens -- and the 2 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." For prolonged sun exposure (anything more than the incidental exposure you might get from driving or working near a window), she recommends an SPF of 30 above with a water-resistant formula. She also suggests choosing a sunscreen containing titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone or mexoryl as its active ingredient.   See sunscreens

Massages, hot tubs and aromatic meditation rooms all rank high on the self-indulgence scale, but spoiling yourself with a full-blown beauty treatment takes the cake. And one of the best ways to treat your skin (while still enjoying a little time off) is with face masks.   read more

The Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Collection is Too Pretty for Words

If you look at makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's Instagram, you'll find images by famed fashion photographer Norman Parkinson (he spent over 50 years in the business, and photographed icons like Sophia Loren, Vivien Leigh and Iman) sprinkled throughout her posts of celebrity clients and backstage snaps.
