What Is a Skin Essence, and Do You Really Need One?

Here's Every Face Oil I Use for Every Possible Skin Concern

Of all skincare products, face oils are my favorite. Nothing ensures I wake up to a newfound glow-skin soft to the touch, dry patches banished, and creeping blemishes curbed-like applying one of my favorite oils before bedtime.

I Tried 7 Blackhead Treatments, and the Best Wasn't the Most Expensive

They say there's no such thing as a magic pill. But when the pill in question is hyaluronic acid, is there an exception?

I Felt Guilty for Taking a Prescription for My Acne-Until My Skin Cleared Up

Erin Jahns For years, I've had an irrational fear of taking a prescription long-term, which, for the most part, stems from my first-ever experience truly taking a long-term prescription-birth control.
