All The Science You Need To Know About Your Skin’s pH Level

I have been having THE WORST breakout lately. What bothers me isn’t so much that it’s been all over my face — although lately it has — but that it’s lasted for such a long time, and no matter what I did, I couldn’t get rid of it.

When I stopped shampooing my hair, I tried to switch over to all-natural body care products, too. The gist of my no-poo conviction is this: Soap-based shampoos strip the natural oils out of your hair and replace them with chemical gunk to artificially make your hair smooth. I get way more volume out of washing my hair with baking soda and lemon juice, and if it’s a little dry, I put a little oil in it. (I need to come back to this point toward the end of the post, though, because there’s some science here that I’ve been neglecting for the last six months.) Keep reading »

Taking care of my skin always feels like a chore. Whether it’s taking my makeup off before I go to bed or using the Clarisonic Mia (which gets me tons of compliments, for real), it’s not a habit. Or it’s a bad habit. Whatever, you know what I mean. But when Origins sent The Frisky office one of their moisturizers, I found a reason to actually enjoy washing my face. Their Make A Difference Plus+ ultra-rich moisturizer feels so good on my dry skin.  Keep reading »

Pharrell Williams, 40, Knows The Importance Of Skincare

Pharrell Williams knows the importance of skincare

“You have to clean your face. You can’t sit around and assume it’s going to be OK. I wash my face every day — don’t be afraid to wash yours before you go to bed! … At the end of the day, you just have to take care of your face. I’m being honest with you.”

— This information from Pharrell Williams is absolutely critical, and do you know why? It is critical because that man, yes, the man pictured above, is FORTY YEARS OLD. Most dudes, in my experience, just don’t grasp the importance of washing one’s face, but Pharrell does, and it’s obviously paid off. Cleansing, toning, and moisturizing: it’s not just for the ladiez!

This Is The Worst Thing You Will See All Day

This Is The Worst Thing You Will See All Day
Dear God, What Is That Thing?!

At first I was excited. “The Epic, Disgusting Removal of a Blackhead 25 Years in the Making,” posted on Jezebel, sounds exactly like my idea of a good time. I love gross shit, I’m a picker myself, and I think we can all agree (right?) that there is something so disgustingly satisfying about popping a zip or removing a blackhead (or watching someone else do those things on YouTube). But a 25-year-old blackhead? Apparently, there is some gross shit that is even too much for me. I suppose I should have realized what I was in for, given Jezebel’s description of the carnage: “It took six minutes to extract what looks to be a rotting Tootsie Roll.” I barely made it through the whole thing and almost burst into tears. Obviously, I need you all to experience the horror as well. (FWIW, I enjoyed this video more than the 27-minute proposal video.) [Jezebel]
