Your Nails Can Harbor Bacteria, Too - Here's How to Keep Them Clean

Washing your hands often is a key element to staying germ-free, but none of that matters if you're not also making sure you're sanitizing your nails. Your nails can also harbor bacteria and, if you're a nail-biter and/or frequently eat with your fingers (pizza, anyone?), those bacteria can easily be transferred to your mouth. According to Purvi Parikh, an allergy and infectious disease specialist with New York University's Langone Medical Center, germs transferring from the hands to the mouth ...

Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Lisa Peterson It's hard to believe it now, but until COVID-19 sent New Yorkers indoors, I regularly wore pants with buttons. I also wasn't riddled with anxiety about touching door handles and cardboard boxes, and I even indulged in the monthly manicure without fear. My, how times have changed. I'm lucky that my experience with the novel coronavirus thus far has mostly meant a new surplus of downtime to fill. According to my social media feeds, many are using...

27 Skin-Care Products Our Editors Are Leaning On the Most This Month

Harley Quinn once described "normal" as nothing but a setting on your hair dryer, and, for all intents and purposes, she's not wrong.

Miley Cyrus Was Coached Through Trimming Her Bangs - For a Second Time - Over FaceTime

Never one to shy away from self-expression and trying new things, last week Miley Cyrus ever-so-boldly decided to give herself a DIY bang trim at home. However, she joked during one of her Instagram Live episodes of Bright Minded that the result was more Tiger King than she was originally hoping for. Nevertheless, Cyrus didn't let it get her down and marked the occasion as a lesson learned rather than a regret. To help remedy the situation, celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger came to Cyrus'...

I Didn’t Realize How Dry My Lips Were Until I Tried Summer Fridays’ New Lip Butter Balm

Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Renee Rodriguez Out of all of the beauty products I use on a daily basis, there is one beauty product I can't live without: lip balm.

Here's What You Should Know Before You Put Witch Hazel on Your Skin

Over the past few years, witch hazel has garnered something of a cult following, with many people praising the ingredient for its supposed anti-inflammatory, pore-minimizing, and acne-reducing benefits. In case you're unfamiliar, witch hazel is a plant that grows in North America and Asia, and its leaves and bark are often used to create topical products like toners and ointments that many have incorporated into their daily skin-care routines. But as far as expert opinion is concerned, the rese...

Thinking About Trying a Hair Relaxer For the First Time? Here's What You Need to Know

Up until I was about 16, I used to get my hair chemically relaxed about once every six weeks. At that point, I started wearing my hair in weaves and other protective styles, which is why I held off on the relaxers for about two years. I only ended up relaxing my hair one more time after I graduating high school before deciding to natural in college thanks to a little bit of influence by a few of my classmates at the time. For as long as I can remember, hair relaxers have been a debated topic in...

Alexa Demie on Being Everyone's New Favorite Makeup Muse: "I'm Not Mad"

For the 25 years I've been on this planet, I never once had the innate urgency to bedazzle my eyelid crease with tiny rhinestones. Then, around some time last August, I watched Euphoria and was introduced to Maddy Perez, played by Alexa Demie. Almost all at once I, along with a vast majority of my generation, became eager to craft the most experimental makeup looks we could dream up. While most of the credit for that goes to the show's creator Sam Levinson and makeup department head Doniella Da...
