I have problem skin. And dermatological fixes have only been temporary. Why? For starters, there are only so many times I will put my body through courses of Accutane and antibiotics.

As I’ve mentioned before, I spend approximately 80 percent of my time and income at the Walgreens down the street from my house. I love wandering the aisles of cosmetics, checking out new products, and buying more sparkly eyeshadows and pink lipsticks even though I already own, you know, all of them. I thought it… READ MORE »

Have you heard of micellar water? I never had until a few months ago, when I read an interview with the stunning French actress Roxane Mesquida.

Marion Cotillard is my consummate object of envy. Ethereal beauty? Check. Ridiculously handsome actor-director beau? Check. Radiant talent in strong, incredible roles, even portraying Edith Piaf herself? Check. Tack on the fact that she’s about as Gallic as they come and there you have it. My beauty-crazed, Francophile self is utterly enraptured by Marion. For… READ MORE »

Until then, I was the poster girl for oily/combination blemish-prone skin, and I’ve always taken great care to stay as freakishly matte as possible. It seems like the hellish combination of cold, blustery weather and my take-no-prisoners approach to anti-acne skincare has… READ MORE »

If your inner circle is anything like mine, they sure as hell expect something nice. Oven mitts just aren’t going to fly for my mom anymore, and… READ MORE »

Oh, dichotomous winter. I love your pretty snow, your brisk air, your holidays… but I loathe what you do to my skin, my hair, my lips! You turn my most powerful (ahem) feminine assets from soft, smooth, and silky to dry, breaking, and brittle. What ever shall I do? … READ MORE »

It’s the least wonderful time of the year. My skin is dry year-round, but fall and winter are the worst of the worst (as in, before writing this post I went to the ladies’ room to slater on face cream for the second time today). I don’t just have to worry about keeping the skin… READ MORE »

I thought Botox would change my life. I admired the shiny, perfect foreheads of my elders on “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (or New York, New Jersey, D.C. and Miami, for that matter) and wished that I too could include myself in the natural-but-not club. I’m 28 and definitely the only one in my… READ MORE »
