Our feet have pretty much been in hibernation mode for the last few months: They've been stuffed into thick woolly socks and fleece-lined boots all winter long. But with the weather warming up, it's time to say goodbye to cozy boots — and hello to strappy sandals and chic mules. That said, flaky, peeling feet aren't something we want to pair our warm weather footwear with, thank you very much — so we've been busy looking for the best foot-softening scrubs, masks and treatments.
More and more women are switching to menstrual cups, and they claim that Aunt Flo's monthly visits have never been easier. (In case you haven't heard of them — though we're guessing you have — a menstrual cup is, well, a silicone cup designed to catch menstrual fluid, thus negating the need for the traditional tampons or pads.)
If you've scrolled through your Instagram feed lately, you may have noticed that shimmering body oils are having *quite* the moment. What started as a model- and influencer-approved beauty look — showcasing ultra-glowy cheekbones, décolletages, arms, and legs — has quickly caught on for the general public. So much so, in fact, that beauty brands saw the need for an easy-to-use product that delivers the look, without needing a professional makeup artist to apply it.
A woman who can never take too many trips to Sephora and jumps for joy each month when her Birchbox subscription arrives might appreciate a lovely bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day, but what she really wants is the new, new in the world of beauty. We're talking the latest and greatest hair tools, makeup palettes, skin smoothers and more.
Love beauty products? Love wine? Well, we've got a treat for you: A little round up of all of our favorite wine-inspired (and even wine-infused) skin care and makeup buys. Sometimes, the wine adds benefits — for example, resveratrol, which is a component of red wine, happens to be a great antioxidant. Other times, the wine is just for fun, which is honestly just as awesome (after all, who among us wouldn't love and cherish a face brush shaped like a glass of wine?)
We all have that one product (or several) that's just so gosh-darn beautiful that we can't quite bear to take it out of the box. It's so pretty that you almost — almost, being the key word — don't even want to use it. That said, you almost inevitably do, and you always get a little extra boost of joy from its beauty. (And it's a gorgeous addition to any Instagram story; though maybe that goes without saying.)
While you might think that it's officially time to break out the SPF (given the gorgeous weather and all), the truth is, you should be wearing it year-round. To help you commit to regular sun protection, we've scoured the web for all the best new sunscreens you'll actually be excited to apply. (You know, so it won't feel like quite so much of a chore.) From shimmering lotions and glowing body oils to powders that double as dry shampoo, ahead you'll find 11 goodies to add to your sun care arsenal.
Brandless — the super affordable, no-frills home and food line where everything costs just a few dollars — has ventured into beauty and we couldn't be happier. We especially love the Depuffing Eye Gel, $8, a blend of probiotics, caffeine, green tea, and pomegranate that smooths fine lines, reduces puffiness, and costs, mercifully, less than 10 bucks.
Let's cut right to the chase, shall we? If you're not yet using sunscreen every single day of the year, please start doing so, like, now. Contrary to popular belief, protecting your skin is a year-round event, and not something reserved solely for summer. Why, you ask? The sun produces both UVA and UVB rays. UVB, the ones responsible for burning your skin, are stronger during the summer, so yes, you likely won't get a sunburn in January. But UVA rays, those that cause signs of aging, such as fine lines, spots and sagging, are the same strength year-round and can penetrate through clouds and even glass. The bottom line: Your skin is susceptible 12 months out of the year — even when you're driving in your car or sitting indoors near a window. And along with all those unsightly effects we mentioned, the damage caused by UVA and UVB rays has a much more serious effect: skin cancer.
