This is going to be our year, you guys. We’re going to work coconut oil into our goddamn beauty routine if it kills me. And by “it” I mean the four tubs of Trader Joe’s oil precariously stacked in my pantry. Let’s start where it really matters —with how to use coconut oil on your face. Smooth legs are great, but… More »
Hey, someone finally realized that all human skin is just about chemically the same regardless of gender! Fancy that! David Arbuthnot, formerly of Gant, Dior Couture, Donna Karan, and Gucci, wanted a simplicity in his own skincare regime, so he took matters into his own hands and created CONTEXT, which debuted at … More »
Lots of things happened after I turned 30. Hangovers went from tolerable nuisances to crippling events that required utter silence and very little movement. Eating pizza and maybe some peanut butter from a spoon at 11:30 p.m. was no longer a suitable dinner, and the soft blub that formed at my waistline didn’t go away… More »
Anyone who has played fantasy football — from the novices to the paralyzed with indecision until kickoff — knows Matthew Berry. The Talented Mr. Roto founder who migrated over to ESPN to become their Senior Fantasy Sports Analyst has built a brand out of being the guy you go to when your friends are tired of… More »
There is perhaps no beauty product more superfluous than face mist. Yeah, you kind of need moisturizer, and some would argue that lipstick or eyeliner is a requirement, but a bottle of water that contains mysterious “minerals” and is scented with various flowers that you spray on your face intermittently throughout the day is not… More »
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,… More »
Having perfect skin can seem like an unlikely dream for those of us who have battled skin conditions over the years. Don’t surrender yet though! In the six years I’ve been an esthetician, I’ve helped people with all skin types deal with tons of skin issues, and I’ve learned quite a few secrets, DIY treatments,… More »
We love coconut oil! Not only does it taste oh-so-delicious, it’s also super healthy and can be used in place of many conventional body care products. Since we also love the earth and saving money, swapping out coconut oil for traditional products is a no-brainer. From cooking to skincare to hair treatments to mouthwash, the… More »
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… More »
“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… More »
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… More »
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… More »
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. … More »
This is Totally Coveted, our new whenever series documenting all the super ridiculous crap we want but (probably, most certainly) are too sensible to buy. Hey, a girl can dream — about $1,200 shoes — can’t she? Take a peek at what we’re coveting, and then tell us what you’re lusting after in the comments!… More »
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… More »
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… More »
While I’ve personally never found any remedy that can mollify the sting, maybe you’ll have better luck. Check out these seven soothing products we recommend slathering all over in case you get burned big time. … More »
My skin has been all but terrible lately, and it’s all but my fault. My breakouts, dryness, redness, blotchiness, sensitivity, and unidentified non-pimple bumps covering my forehead have either everything or nothing to do with my recent proclivity toward sleeping in my makeup, staying out late, eating terribly (but deliciously), hanging out in smoke-filled rooms,… More »
They aren’t the sexiest or most exciting beauty product — not by a long shot — but facial wipes are an absolute necessity. If you’re prone to late-night laziness or, um, unforeseen sleepovers, a pack thrown in your purse can mean the difference between a fresh face and eyeliner on your cheeks in the morning. More »
