Get That Kardashian Glow With Kardashian Glamour Tan

Though we may be sick of seeing the Kardashian sisters flaunting their bikini bodies on countless magazine covers, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe aren’t tired of showing off their toned figures, perfect tans, and flawless makeup. We’re not at all shocked that the sisters are launching a Kardashian Beauty line, and the very first Kardashian-branded beauty product will be Kardashian Glamour Tan, retailing for $34 at Sephora. As with all self-tanners, this one promises a streak-free look without making you appear orange or splotchy. Interestingly, the Kardashian bronze will be the first self-tanner to include Imudulin, which is essentially an anti-aging product. Maybe Kim can use her new fake tanner to ward off wrinkle lines instead of getting Botox? [Stylelist] Keep reading »

How To Give Yourself A Great Pedicure

Beauty-wise, there are two really great things about winter: 1) you don’t really have to shave, and 2) the state of your toes is largely irrelevant because they’re so often encased in boots and other toe-hiding shoes. Come summer, both of these become weird and disgusting, so you have to start, you know, taking care of yourself. It’s lame, but we generally go along with it, if only to avoid that talk about the importance of “always looking your best!” from our mothers. Shaving is easy enough, but pedicures can be a pain. Either they’re prohibitively expensive or badly bungled when you attempt a DIY job. Now is the time to screw spending $25 every other week or slathering polish all over your feet like a toddler with no motor skills. Keep reading for our tips on how to get the perfect at-home pedicure. Keep reading »

The Pee Facial: There Are No Words

Prepare to be traumatized. Earlier this week on “The Doctors,” a panel of experts discussed the use of—gag—urine in skin care. “Urea,” explains one doctor, “on the skin potentially has some benefits,” before then applying pee-soaked cotton balls to each other’s faces as “urine facials.” There’s a lot we’d go through to get great skin … but putting piss on our faces surely isn’t one of them.

Think Twice Before Drying Your Nails At Salons

Personally, I loathe the little hand dryers at nail salons because I see them as a breeding area for germs. But most of the time, I’ll suck it up in an effort to keep my brand-new manicure chip-free. If I’m going to spend upwards of $10 for polish, then I’d like it to be perfect. Now, however, I’m going to think twice about my post-manicure plans, because those little hand dryers are actually full of UV rays! Dermatologist Neal Schultz wants women (and men) to be aware of the damage they’re doing to their fingers by sitting under the salon dryers for anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. “Reports of unusual numbers of skin cancers on the fingers of frequent users are compelling reasons to avoid them until controlled studies can demonstrate safe parameters for their use (if they even exist),” he said. So, I’ll be staying away from those little tanning beds for your hands from now on. Solution? Fan dryers are a safe option, or if those aren’t available at your local salon, simply sit sans dryer until your wet polish turns hard, like they did in the good ol’ days. [Glamour] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

We’re generally pretty skeptical of any beauty product that claims to fix up our messy bits while we sleep. What happened to the whole beauty is pain concept? Suddenly beauty is supposed to be just easy? Well, apparently so. Kiehl’s new Midnight Recovery Concentrate did, in fact, have a visible effect on my face overnight. No, I didn’t wake up with the world’s best skin and, mysteriously, 10 pounds lighter. But I did look and feel more hydrated and smoother than usual. [$42, Kiehl’s] Keep reading »

Kylie Minogue’s Cheap Secret For Perfect Skin

Forget expensive skin creams and trips to the dermatologist. If you really want perfect skin, Kylie Minogue has the answer, and it’s a whole lot cheaper than you’d expect. Apparently, the star relies on Pond’s Cold Cream for her wrinkle-free complexion, a product you’ve seen in the vanity of your grandmother’s house, no doubt. “It’s really changed my skin,” she said. “It’s all I really use to look after my skin. It’s such an old classic.” Though the skin cream has been around forever and costs a measly $4.99, you might not be aware that its roots are really based in ancient Greece, which officially makes it that much cooler, not to mention a total steal. The cream derives inspiration and its base — water and fats — from a cleanser used over 2,000 years ago, making it a historical gem in the beauty world. Kylie’s must-have product proves two things: 1) You shouldn’t judge skincare products by their price tag because sometimes the best finds are the cheapest, and 2) Grandma always know best. If this cream will give you flawless skin through your 40s, like Kylie’s, I’m picking some up on my way home today. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
