Some people love their belly hair. Some don't, and find it embarrassing. If you find it's cropping up at the wrong times, you should know you can safely wax it away and you'll have a fuzz-free stomach for weeks. It's always best to seek out a professional, but if you're on a budget and willing to give it a try, it's not unheard of to do it at home.
It's safe to say that the most cutting-edge skincare often originates from Korea. From sheet masks to snail gel, if something is big in Korean skincare, it's likely to become a buzz over in the West, too. So it might come as no surprise that we have Korea to thank for the surge of skin essences cropping up in our bathroom cabinets.
Hallie Gould When I first received an email thatВ Skin Laundry had addedВ toВ its menu of skincare treatments, I was intrigued. I'd always really loved the results ofВ its first treatment, the Signature Laser + Light Facial, as it cleans out your pores and leaves your face super bright and toned. But I have to admit, I would always leave the treatment room wanting more.
Charley Gallay / Getty Images It's not often that we see candid, sans makeup pics of Kim Kardashian West. And while she's undeniably beautiful in person, most of the images we see of the business mogul are fine-tuned copies that have been Kim-approved once her glam squad has worked their magic. But in a rare moment of vulnerability, she shared the reality of her skin underneath the filters and KKW concealer-guess what?
Like niacinamide or benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid is a hero ingredient in many anti-acne skincare products, which is why you've likely been using it for years if you're someone who struggles with chronic breakouts. What you might not know, however, is that it's not exclusive to anti-acne skincare.
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. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate ($49), a hardworking oil of distilled botanicals that replenishes skin overnight, was actually the very first real grown-up product I introduced to (what were the beginnings of) my skincare routine in my twenties.
Mango Acne, by far, is one of the most common-albeit confusing, frustrating, and all-around mysterious-skin conditions we deal with. It's highly personal, and even though we're often prescribed umbrella-like quick fixes in the form of supplements or topical skincare products, there is hardly an effective, one-size-fits-all approach for treating breakouts.
For some, a Botox treatment is as routine as a haircut. No judgment here, but if there's a less invasive, less paralyzing way to reverse the signs of aging, we'll take it. But to be fair, Botox isn't necessarily always the face-freezing treatment you'd imagine it to be, according to dermatologist Dr.
Before we get started, let's get a better understanding of what a blackhead is: Once your hair follicle becomes clogged with excess sebum and the melanin in the sebum oxidizes at the surface of the skin, it turns that wonderful black color that sticks out like a sore thumb. And as overtly obvious as they are on our noses and T-zones, they're extremely difficult to get rid of.
For years, eyebrows have been a beauty-industry obsession. From Cara Delevingne to Zendaya, from microblading to microshading, and from Boy Brow ($16) to Brow Flick ($18), we all seem to love a well-maintained brow-a look so coveted that the very idea of shaving eyebrows might seem like a complete and utter abomination.
Roughly one month ago, IВ got the opportunity of a lifetime and attendedВ Cosmoprof North America (CPNA), the single largest business-to-business beauty trade show in all the Americas. The show spans a full three days, is held annually in Las Vegas's Mandalay Bay Convention Center, and this year alone hosted an incredible 40,000 attendeesВ and a record-breaking 1415 exhibitors from 56 different countries.
Celebrities seem to possess naturally glowy skin, luscious locks, and wide-awake eyes. There are three main reasons for this: good genes, amazing glam teams, and someВ veryВ well-kept industry secrets.В Dermaplaning В is one of those secrets-chances are, even if you haven't heard of it, you've seen the results.
Luke Fontana It's always fun catching an actress on the rise right before everyone in the world wants a piece of her-especially one as enthusiastic about beauty asВ Shaunette RenГ©e Wilson. You might recognize the New York-based performer, who was born in Guyana (where much of her family still lives). Wilson went on to graduate from the prestigious Yale School of Drama in 2016 and then had her turn on the big screen inВ Black Panther before appearing on the small screen in Fox's medical drama seriesВ The Resident .
Stocksy It's a jarring moment when you look in the mirror and can see that you've aged. It doesn't occur to you gradually; it just hits you like a tonne of bricks one day out of the blue. For me, this moment happened shortly after my 28th birthday. At one moment, I was being asked what college I attended, and the next, a stranger had assumed we were both entering our 30s.
Though some might prefer theirs in a giant bouquet (preferably held in the grasp of a charming, dashingВ individual), while others are team single stem, we choose to soak in the beauty of the world's most romantic flower in skincare form. Yes, we're talking about theВ rose.В Ahead, you'll find our favorite rose-infused skincare products for every budget, whether you're spending $15 or $150.
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'd been hearing a lot of buzz about ingestible hyaluronic acid (which our bodies produce naturally, but the production of which declines as we age, like everything good in life), so when a box landed on my desk, it was a no-brainer to put it to the test.
When you have a breakout, you probably see it as just that-a terribly unfortunate and potentially day-ruining development, but a breakout nonetheless. However, not all acne is the same, meaning you can't treat small, red papules the same way you'd approach an inflamed pustule. To break down the unique treatment plan required for each type of acne, we called in celebrity esthetician RenГ©e Rouleau.
When it comes to skincare, you'd think that actual royals would settle forВ nothing less than the "royal treatment." If I had toВ put a price point on Kate Middleton's skincare routine, I'd guess something in the thousands. After all, her skin looks impeccable. Fillers and at least $500 have to be involved, right?
We all know that eye cream is a necessity to prevent fine lines and puffiness, but if you have sensitive eyes, your go-to formula may be doing more harm than good. How? If your products cause, for example, watering, redness, or itchy skin, they're also causing inflammation, which makes your eyes puffy.
В Frazer Harrison/FilmMagic/Getty Images The fashion elite stormed NYC last night to celebrate Vogue 's annual first Monday in May: The Met Ball. This year, the theme married together religious works of art and couture, aptly named Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination . Naturally, the dresses, headpieces, and elaborate jewelry were a focus, but for us, it was more about the hair, makeup, and skin .
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. It didn't go well, and essentially, my body rebelled. I could barely get out of bed due to nausea, I suffered from a spree of migraines, and my mood was unpredictable and overall less than stellar.
