The Scar Removal Creams That Really Work, According To Experts

Scars have a way of telling your life story. The one on your leg may be from the first time you tried (and failed) to ride a bike. The stretch marks — which are indeed scars — on your hips may be from a time in your life when you were growing up, maturing. The one on your stomach may be a C-section scar, which you were left with after giving birth.There's no reason to feel like you have to hide your scars, or like they're a point of shame.

A Plant for Every Room in Your Home

It’s easy to see why we reach for plants in a decorative pinch: they’re vibrant, they’re aromatic, and they add a simple decorative touch to space that may be lacking. Although we can safely say everyone can see the visual appeal in adding a plant to your room, not everyone knows that some can be used for additional purposes, ranging from air purification, allergy help, and more. Here are the indoor plants you should keep in each room, based on their purpose. Eucalyptus ...

Everything You Want To Know About Butt Hair (& We Mean Everything)

“Can You Talk To Me About Butt Hair?” is the email subject line I never thought I’d write.

The point is: When we test a new product, service, or treatment, we often anticipate immediate, life-altering results that...

What I Wish I'd Known Before I Went Freelance

Up until last year, I was a full-time freelancer for four years. It was a career path I kind of fell into; I love to travel, value my freedom of movement, and revel in the ability to be creative and explore a spectrum of crafts, tasks, and projects.When I first started working as a freelancer, I was scared. While, on one hand, I saw a limitless path stretching out in front of me, I also had a lot of questions: How does billing work? How do you do your taxes? What makes a good contract? What abo...
