Do You Take Collagen In Your Coffee?

Can you drink your way to perfect skin? And when we say “drink,” we’re unfortunately not referring to beer and wine.

The New

Quick Tip Of The Day: Do Not Combine Acne-Fighting Face Wash With Colored Towels

Something mysterious has been going on in my bathroom. My blue towels have big bleached splotches. For a while I couldn’t figure out why.

How To Get Ridiculously Perfect-Looking Skin

I’m pretty dang obsessed with Rad Hourani for making lots of hard-edged, androgynous black clothes that look good on girls and boys.

Derms have been recommending this vibrating, rechargeable, pore-cleaning brush in magazine articles and during office appointments since the dinos roamed the earth. Seriously, even Wilma Flintstone keyed Betty Rubble into its gorgeous skin results way back when. I tried to block out all the talk and labeled the Clarisonic brush as nothing but hype—make that…

What Would Happen If Anti-Aging Products Really Worked?

As rational, educated women, we know in our heads that when it comes to the often outlandish promises skincare companies make, applying a so-called wrinkle cure will not actually erase lines from our face.

The obsession with staying youthful has led many to paralyze their faces with toxin and completely alter the face they were given.
