Barbie Ferreira on Having Her Acne Accentuated on Euphoria: "It Was Grounded in Reality"

In an admission that's about as surprising as Euphoria's much-anticipated return to HBO: "I used to be bit of a maximalist with my beauty routine," Barbie Ferreira confessed with a laugh. "I was very extravagant. I wore a blue smoky eye with winged eyeliner and fake lashes all through ninth grade." Revelatory? No. But unlike her character Kat Hernandez on the show, Ferreira's approach to makeup has since evolved. (We forgot to ask where she's shifted in terms of lace-up bustiers and fishnet tigh...

Imagine If Your Hair Determined If You Could Walk at Graduation

Imagine if how you wore your hair determined whether or not you could walk with your classmates at your graduation. That as a high-school student - in 2020, nonetheless - you'd be forced to face the impossible decision of either getting rid of a hairstyle you've felt proud of for years or not being able to celebrate a milestone with your peers. That's exactly what's happening to DeAndre Arnold, a senior at Barbers Hill High School in Mont Belvieu, TX, who's spent the last week speaking out ab...

Vispi Speaks: How Much Water Do You Really Need To Drink

Hydration is important, especially in hotter regions where people lose more water from sweating and exhalation. There are plenty of clear associations between hydration and metabolism, skin health, and general fitness.  But too much of anything isn’t good. Even water. So, how much is the right amount of water you should drink? A couple of human studies have suggested that individuals who drink very, very small amounts of fluid, significantly less than 800-900 mL/day, may be at higher risk for ...

The Jos Buttler formula and the Ben Stokes toolkit – how ‘trust your defence’ and ‘play your natural game’ aren’t competing philosophies

Jos Buttler is a Test batsman who talks as if he needs to approach his innings in a certain way. Maybe taking a philosophy into the middle is counterproductive. What’s your natural game? Our natural game is a lot of tea, coffee and reading, a small amount of writing, maybe a bike ride and probably three beers late on watching something like Roadhouse, the film that taught Michael Vaughan so much. As you’d imagine, we play our natural game basically never, which is fine, bec...

I Never Put Much Faith in Dry Shampoo, Until I Used This $5 Brand For 3 Days Straight

As someone with a slew of friends who regularly rely on dry shampoo to get them through the day, I know the power of a solid spray. But because I have superthick and pretty oily hair, I've never been able to fully embrace the dry shampoo movement. Sure, I've used it in the past to hold me over for an event here and there, but I've never considered it a product I can truly fall back on. Is it because I'm a serial hair washer who's been known to shower twice a day? Probably. (And yes, I know this...

Digital Zoroastrian at the British Library

The British Library is fortunate in having an unparalled collection of over 100 Zoroastrian works ranging from the oldest, the ninth century Ashem Vohu prayer written in Sogdian script discovered by Aurel Stein in Central Asia in 1907, to, most recently, manuscripts collected especially for the Royal Society in London during the late-nineteenth century. Although Zoroastrianism is Iranian in origin, most of our manuscripts in fact come from India. They are written in Avestan (Old Iranian), Middle...

New doc explores the super-gay history of the International Male Catalog

Before there were Instagays and overtly gay underwear brands, the International Male catalog offered a somewhat coded window into homoeroticism, and the company behind it was happy to reap the rewards. A new documentary titled All Man: The International Male Story explores the catalog’s history, beginning in the 1970s and peaking in the ’90s when roughly three million copies were mailed out each quarter. At that time, annual revenue exceeded $100 million. Watch the trailer below: AdBridg.cmd.p...

I Thought I'd Sworn Off Concealer Forever, but This $10 Formula Changed My Mind

I've had an up-and-down relationship with makeup. Growing up as a dancer, it was a requirement on stage from an early age, which ultimately piqued my interest as a tween. I can specifically recall piling on every shade from a neutral CoverGirl eye shadow palette and applying perhaps one too many coats of Maybelline's classic Great Lash mascara at every chance I could, even if I was just going to the grocery store with my mom. The novelty was real. Cut to my early 20s when putting on makeup star...

Gay adult film performer blasts studio for paying bottoms less than tops

Adult entertainer Armond Rizzo claims that a studio called Blacks on Boys — the self-proclaimed “home to the best interracial” gay content — pays bottoms “way less” than tops under the rationale that the site is “more top dominant.” “This has never happened to me but there’s a studio who is interested in me and what I found out about them is mind blowing,” Rizzo tweeted on January 25. “They pay bottoms way less than tops [and their] excuse [is] the site is more top dominant. I don’t give a f*ck...

Using the logic of neuroscience to heal from a breakup

According to a study from anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher, when humans fall in love, regions of the brain that are rich in dopamine (a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in feeling pleasure) light up and parts of the brain that are used in fear and social judgment are operating at lower rates. The surge and decline of hormones in our brains when we experience a breakup are also similar to those felt when withdrawing from an addiction to drugs - and the pain felt during a breakup has appeared...

Should You Be Rinsing Your Hair With Apple Cider Vinegar? (For Most, the Answer Is Yes)

As someone who can only wash her hair once a week, I know all too well that sometimes I need a little more than shampoo to get rid of the grease and product buildup on my scalp. To add to that, my hair also has a bit of a dryness problem thanks to my highly porous strands that sometimes make it impossible for moisture to retain itself. Thankfully, I've spent the past few months listening to my hair needs and trying to figure out what kinds of products it benefits from the most, one of which is ...
