A couple days ago, I told you about a popular new exfoliation treatment that’s all the rage in Hollywood right now called dermaplaning. This procedure involves an esthetician “shaving” a layer of dead skin cells off your face — revealing glowing, radiant skin underneath. Many of you wrote in asking how to get the benefits […]
One of my favorite things about summer are the al fresco dinners my friend Julie hosts in her backyard.

I want to start by saying that I always have your best interest at heart. Sadly, I cannot say the same for other skincare companies. Just two weeks ago, dozens of anti-aging products sold on “reputable” e-commerce giants Amazon and eBay were found to contain dangerous levels of mercury. In the U.S., the legal limit […]
It was the kind of Thanksgiving you dream about. Everyone was getting along. The in-laws were laughing together.

Cleopatra was well known for her beauty. And she went to great lengths to enhance her looks. Historians say she bathed in donkey’s milk, crushed beetles for blush, and exercised her face daily to prevent her skin from sagging. We might not use donkey’s milk anymore, but women are still exercising their face muscles… it’s called […]

You take care of the skin on your face, but what about the skin on your body? I moisturize everyday, but recently, I’ve started a new beauty ritual that’s given my entire body the softest, smoothest skin of my life.

Holding it in place with a fork, I began sawing the thick veggie burger into bite-sized pieces. Did I look ridiculous? Probably. But that was better than the pain I’d get if I opened my mouth wide – which was like slicing into my own cracked lip corners. The condition that gives you cracked lip […]

Have you or someone you know ever been affected by those tiny hard “goosebumps” commonly found on the back of the thighs and arms?
