Can I Get Rid Of My Cellulite?

A while ago, we ran a post about a cellulite cream that a blogger at StyleList tried that she said works. After that, Karin Herzog, the company that makes the product, got in touch and asked if I wanted to give it a try myself. Get rid of my cellulite? Sure! I guess I’d say my cellulite situation is about “average.” I’ve got some on the backs of my thighs and on my butt. Can a skin cream get rid of my cellulite? I am dubious. Yet, I’ll keep an open mind while I try their Silhouette and Tonus B12 creams for a month. I can’t promise that I’ll post before and after shots of my butt (which is probably for the best, really), but I will let you know in 30 days if my rear end has more or less cellulite. [Karin Herzog] Karin Herzog sent me two free tubes of anti-cellulite creams, but my 30-day cellulite status report will be 100% influence-free. Keep reading »

I’m 25 And I Still Have Acne—When Will It End?

I’ve never had acne that’s been bad enough to earn me the nickname “Pizza Face” or to produce yearbook photos that needed to be burned. But I have had persistent breakouts since I was a teenager, and have gone through the ringer of treatments from the prescribed (creams, cleansers, oral antibiotics) to the popular (microdermabrasion, galvanic facials, weird “As Seen on TV” heat-treating gadgets). The only thing that’s ever worked for me is Accutane, the hard-core prescription drug which is no pretty process and will give you a deformed baby if you happen to get pregnant on it. Yet, even after a few courses of Accutane, I’ve found (as is common with the drug), that its effects wear off after about a year … Keep reading »

Helen Mirren Shares Her Beauty Secrets

“Holding your tummy in is another trick for making you look and feel good. I don’t know why, but I do, by nature, hold my tummy in. [... And] Four-inch platforms give you great height and make your legs look unbelievably long. I used only to be able to get them in stripper shops, but now you can buy them everywhere – although, unfortunately, that means everyone else has discovered the trick too.”

Helen Mirren, who turned heads with her bikini pics two years ago when she was just shy of 63, shares some of her beauty tips with the Daily Mail. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Bikini Waxer Suggested I Get Liposuction

I am a hairy person. Think of the hairiest person you know, then think hairier. Think “Harry and the Hendersons” hairy. Anytime I am within a tongue depressor’s distance of an aesthetician, they find something new to wax. (This is how I learned the hard way that upper-lip waxing is not something you should agree to do lightly.) I’m super laid-back in the vanity department, so I am pretty used to waxers offering — nay, begging — to rip hot wax off my eyebrows, my upper lip, my arms, my legs and my lady parts. What I am not used to, however, is the suggestion that I fly to Colombia to get liposuction. Keep reading »
