We're all well aware of the benefits of acupuncture. But if you're needle-phobic, those benefits don't really matter. Thankfully, Seyhart in Santa Monica, California offers an alternative way to get the pros of acupuncture without those pointy cons via a technique known as Tuina (pronounced twee-nah).
There are a number of things that can cause body acne. Figuring out the culprit(s) is a big part of the battle. Tight clothing, sweat and not showering post-hot yoga are some of the likely causes of breakouts. Another common yet often overlooked cause is hair care products.
Having spent almost six summers in the sweltering Tel Aviv heat, I've learned a thing or two about keeping my skin protected, acne-free and glowing during workouts. Especially when my sweat sesh is outside. Pale-skinned and prone to moles, dark spots and blemishes, working out outdoors isn't something I take lightly.
Heat waves, never-ending Zoom calls and planning that long-overdue vacation can leave you exhausted. While an iced latte can work wonders, it isn't the only option. Energizing beauty products can really get you going. Especially since some even contain caffeine.
Sandal season is here. After months of cooping up your feet in sneakers and boots, chances are you're dealing with your fair share of issues. We're talking corns and calluses, cracked heels, yellow toenails and potentially even some foot pain.
Summer calls for endless mimosas, photo ops on pool floaties and (finally) the opportunity to bare more skin. There's no shame in owning your natural skin tone, but we totally get it if you're keen on achieving the perfect summer tan. Instead of spending hours in the sun and damaging your skin leading to wrinkles and even cancer, we suggest embracing a faux glow.
A few months ago, I decided to make the switch to natural deodorant. Natural deodorant is free of aluminum, the ingredient found in conventional antiperspirants that stops you from sweating. While rumors have swirled for years that the aforementioned aluminum ups your risk of breast cancer, there's little scientific evidence supporting that claim.
Though it may seem abundant, water is a coveted, finite resource becoming scarcer by the day. We should be using and consuming water, but at the same time there are ways to be smarter about it. In the same way it's important to veer away from single-use plastic, it's also a good idea to transition away from water-based products.
March is the month set aside to honor women. But we celebrate women all year long. So we decided to highlight some of the contributions powerful women have made in the beauty and wellness industries.

If you've never noticed a blemish on Hannah Bronfman's face it might have less to do with Instagram filters and more to do with what's in her skin care arsenal. When we spoke to the wellness influencer and DJ, who now splits her time between the Hamptons and Manhattan as she cares for her new son Preston, she shared key products to fight hyperpigmentation, redness and inflammation.
The right branding and packaging can normalize any product. No longer are vaginal bacteria-killing products and eczema creams banished to the back of your medicine cabinet. Even acne is being embraced thanks to brands like Starface , which turned brightly colored blemish patches into must-have accessories. Brands like Starface aren't all about style over substance, however. The industry-shifting products featured in the following slideshow work just as great as they look and effectively treat everything from boob sweat to thigh chafing.

The internet influencer turned entrepreneur consistently tackles some of the most unsexy product categories, like thigh chafing and boob sweat. But in a fun, approachable way.

Megababe's first product, Thigh Rescue, $14, sold out in a week.
The cold wind doesn't seem quite so bitter. Daffodils and tulips are beginning to come up. We're starting to dream about pastel makeup even more than usual. It can only mean one thing: spring is coming. The new season signals a skin care switch as well as the need for a fragrance update. The warming, musky scents of winter should be traded in for brighter floral or fruity fragrances that truly celebrate the season.
As a teenage debutante in Richmond, Tinsley Mortimer says she has been experimenting with makeup and skincare from a very young age. While her signature southern charm can be traced back to her Virgina upbringing, most of us didn't get to know her until the early aughts when she became a veritable it girl on the New York social scene, culminating with her own CW reality show High Society. Fast forward a few years and she joined the cast of Real Housewives of New York only to leave three years later, in 2020, after her engagement to Chicago-based CouponCabin CEO Scott Klut.
For the longest time the collective beauty community has been a bit fixated on tending to the skin on our faces. There are enough vitamin C serums to last a lifetime, way too many creams to count, and scrubs, peels, and cleansers galore.
Let's be real. Taking those five minutes morning, noon, and night to brush and floss your teeth isn't exactly the most exciting part of the day. In fact, it's pretty dang monotonous and there's great temptation to cut corners. That said, oral hygiene is super important — and not just because it keeps cavities, stinky breath, and infections away. Your oral health is actually tied to your greater well-being and, more specifically, your heart health.
For years now, moving to a more eco-friendly, sustainable manufacturing model has been gaining momentum. It's been a bit slower going than what many might like, but the shift is definitely happening. In addition to new brands dedicated to producing cleaner products, tried-and-true brands are switching gears, too. In fact, you might have even noticed that some of your favorite beauty products are getting the eco revamp. We've rounded up some of them here, along with a couple of brands that have long been clean but are going into overtime to do innovative stuff in the clean space.
There is no shortage of stellar new beauty brands competing for our attention. While testing through them can be part of the journey, sometimes we don't have the energy, time or funds to waste on lackluster lines. So, we've asked beauty experts for their picks of the under-the-radar hair, wellness and skin care brands that are totally worth a spot on your shelf.
At this point you'd be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't heard of Botox's ability to fight fine lines and wrinkles. "It's one of the number one treatments I do at my practice," says Dr. Dennis Gross, MD, a dermatologist and dermatological surgeon. "There's no golden age to start Botox — every person ages differently due to genetics and lifestyle choices and there's no age where you're too old for Botox. That being said, Botox is only FDA-approved and available for patients 18 and older." It's also worth underlining that Botox is not safe for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding and, those with a neurological disease, need clearance from their neurologist.
