I know that all the products I use in my daily life certainly can’t be good for me. But I had no idea that, on a day-to-day basis, I could possibly be exposing my body to 515 chemicals. Fear! According to Bionsen, a natural deodorant company, women have up to 515 different chemicals in their body on any given day. Now, of course, this varies depending on how many and which kinds of product you use. But it’s a real problem, as some of the nastiness has reportedly been the cause of breast cancer, fertility issues, skin cancer, and hormonal issues. The most common of the chemicals comes from parabens (preservatives) that basically extend the shelf life of items. When those parabens mutate (from the sun, its infiltration in the body, or the dosage level), in come the problems. So what’s the solution? Cut down, use organic, and make sure to read all the little details on the labels. You can also get hazard ratings on specific products here. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
We spend tons of time (and money) washing, toning, and moisturizing our faces to keep them smooth and free of blemishes and fine lines, but most of us just slap on any ole body moisturizer. When we’re old and gray, our faces will be oh-so-smooth, and our limbs will be covered in wrinkles. But not if we slather on Hissyfit Body Double Moisturizer With Anti-Aging Ingredients and SPF 30. The mix of anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants means our skin will be protected and improved in just one step. Plus, the lotion, which is scented with vanilla, almond, orange, and grapefruit essential oils, smells light and isn’t sticky or greasy. [$45, Dermstore]
We’re giving away five bottles of Hissyfit Body Double Moisturizer With SPF 30+, but you have to work if you want your skin to look good. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Nov. 20 through Thursday, Nov. 26 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Here’s one of those celeb makeup moments that makes you go, “Hey, that’s a cool idea and looks pretty,” but then makes you think, “How would I ever really wear that?” Surely, Rihanna‘s pink eyeliner is a bit dramatic, and unless you’re going out to ’80s night (or an award show, whatever), it probably won’t fly in most situations (work, date, daytime look). However, tone down the intensity on that fuchsia, and it can become a really pretty complement to your skin tone. After the jump, instructions on how to get a subdued pink eye.

First, ignore the fact that not only did Leighton Meester play up her lips (bright red!), but also her eyes (major smokey shadow!) at the same time—I’m not a fan, but, hey, rules are created to be broken. Instead, let’s focus on the
crazy interesting eye shadow trick she’s got going on: Shadow in her crease, shadow above her eye, but no shadow (or at least a totally different and light shadow) on her eyelids. While I’m not advising you do that for anything other than a red carpet appearance, I do think you could copy that trick with less jarring colors and it’d look pretty freaking awesome. I’m feeling a lighter wash of, say, peachy brown?
Here’s how to do it …

Unless you are very, very lucky, many women spend tons of money and time in the pursuit of perfect skin. No one seems to stop buying products, and new treatments continue to come out, so it would seem nearly no one achieves the goal.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, chief of dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, recently went on CBS’s “The Early Show” to talk about the subject, and some of her tips were very surprising. The first issue (which we’re all guilty of), is in fact treating the problem too much. “Many women and men use too many products, like exfoliating way too much,” says Marmur. In the end, she suggests, if you don’t know what the product is going to do for you, then chuck it. Which also debunks the myth that you have to spend a lot on fancy creams and lotions: “You can do that for 100 bucks a year. That’s less than 50 cents a day.” Keep reading »
