The latest in retro fashion statements? Slathering streaks of colored sunblock on your nose or cheeks with Zinka products. The gnarly sun protection brand has been popular with surfers for over 20 years, and re-entering the mainstream. Ironic? Awesome? Hilarious? Oh, pipe down hipsters. We see you rolling your eyes while simultaneously applying a stripe of neon yellow to your nose. For those interested in the lifeguard look, you can choose from some 10 colors (mix and match, dude!) including army green, electric blue, blindingly bright orange, and pink.

Unless you are some sort of superhuman, summer inevitably brings on the butt sweats, and, um, sweat in other private areas. This extra moisture can cause inner thigh irritation if you’re doing a good amount of walking in a skirt or dress. One way to avoid this super uncomfortable rash would be to wear shorts under your skirt (or just not wear skirts?), or you could safeguard against chafing with an anti-chafing gel. Our pick: Monistat’s Anti-Chafing Powder-Gel, which is non-greasy (meaning it won’t damage your clothes) and guards against wetness (ew, sorry, we know that sounds dirty). If you’ve already hit Chafe City, try a diaper cream (no, really) to relieve irritation in a snap. Mustela’s Vitamin Barrier Cream has an incredibly rich texture to soothe and reduce redness.

Animal rights activists are currently hating on Elle Macpherson because she admitted to using rhino horn powder as a beauty treatment. Talk about weird beauty products people eat (collagen coffee, anyone?), the supermodel engages in a rare practice of ingesting ground-up rhinoceros horn, which, she says, tastes like “crushed bone and fungus in a capsule.” Besides the ick factor, rhino powder is illegal because the animals are an endangered species and on the no-poach list. Macpherson’s admission is pretty careless considering she’s previously been engaged in animal rights causes and projects. So, what gives, Elle? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Judging by her appearance in Cancun, Mexico yesterday at the international press junket for her latest film, “Salt,” you’d never know that this 35-year-old Hollywood starlet had any problem keeping her sexy strands sleek and smooth.
But celebrity stylist and mastermind behind Jolie’s gorgeous and frizz-free locks, David Babaii, knew just what to do. Read more … Keep reading »
Last time I checked, having blue hair was a sure indication that you’ve passed the prime moments in your life and have officially hit old age. However, pop stars and designers are looking to change those preconceived notions, and now, with their approval, blue hair is all the rage. Marc Jacobs started it off a few years ago, as he dyed his dark hair a hue of electric blue; then Katy Perry took the stage to perform “California Gurls” at the MTV Movie Awards in a vivid blue wig. To round out the trend, Juliette Lewis appeared during a performance in London with a few blue highlights, perfectly matching her Ray-Bans. And, of course, our own Kate has been rocking a rad blue streak in her hair for years. So, what do you say — would you go blue? [Telegraph] Keep reading »
