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]

Beauty How-To: Fake Perfect Skin With Minimal Makeup

Sit down, everybody, and let’s talk about that most elusive of all makeup looks, the majestic, seemingly intangible unicorn that is Perfect Skin. One need not be born with — nor consume only omega-3 rich fishes, avocado, and $12 green juices to acquire — perfect skin to appear as if one has perfect skin, do you follow? One need certainly not spackle on layers of HD foundation, either, because that never seems to result in perfect skin but rather “whoa, that’s a lot of makeup” skin. If your skincare routine isn’t quite up to snuff, and your diet includes more Keebler elf cookies than kale, that’s your life, your choice, bro, and it shouldn’t stand in the way of you looking like the portrait of glowing health. Isn’t makeup the best?

I had the kind of no-makeup-necessary perfect skin that strangers commented on my entire life, including the quintessential 12-15 greasy years, and then suddenly, randomly, INFURIATINGLY started developing skin probz (acne, clogged pores, oiliness, scarring, redness, whatever), like, five whole years after I foolishly assumed I would be in the clear for life. I’ve always been fairly (lol) vain, and my skin had never been something I had to worry about, but when it did become a concern, I learned pretty quickly how to fake the same flawless skin I used to wake up with. I mean, is it as good as the real thing? No, definitely not, but it’s still pretty damn good. Keep reading »

Pigeon

Though rare in the United States, using bird feces for facial treatments is a well-known and common in Japan. And if you’re just dying to have bird poop smeared on your face in the hopes it will improve your skin, one New York spa offers the treatment for $180.

This poop isn’t just from any old garbage-ingesting pigeon. The treatment uses imported Asian nightingale poop on the faces of its customers. Only the fanciest of bird poops are fit for these facials!

wearing makeup to bed is bad for your skin

Chronic makeup-to-bed-wearer here. As such, I read with interest a new, very scientific study undertaken by Anna Pursglove, a writer over at the Daily Mail, who spent a month wearing her makeup to bed (and basically not washing her face) to see what might happen.

Short answer: It’s not pretty. Keep reading »

I Want That: Luxurious Face Masks!

I Want That: Luxurious Face Mask Edition
Face Masks And Skincare, Oh My!

A face mask is a great way to wind down from the week and de-stress. I love a face mask, especially when my skin is feeling totally oily and out of control, but our friend Andy from Celebuzz had never tried one. So we thought, what better time to introduce him to the joys of throwing a bunch of glop on your face than on camera, for potentially millions to see?! Andy was a great sport, and helped us try out a few different types of masks. How’d it go? Click the video and find out!

Nipple Crayons, Nose Straighteners & More: 11 Amazing & Terrifying Beauty Products From Japan

Japanese beauty products are wild, man. They are at once super futuristic but also hopelessly outdated. Like if Betty Draper met “Tron” or something — you’d be wearing a crazy space suit but worried about “reducing” and “slimming your figure.” I’m totally fascinated by these things, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I pretty much would buy all of this crap if my budget allowed. Who doesn’t want a $4,000 animatronic seal, you guys? Or a bizarre medieval face-stretching device? This stuff is the coolest!

Check out 10 of our favorite bizarre beauty products from the Japan Trend Shop above.
