Setting Up a DIY Foot Spa Should Be Your Next Self-Care Activity: Here's What You Need

You know the parts of a pedicure before the polish comes out . . . like the foot soaking, scrubbing, massaging, and moisturizing? Well, why not bring a similar self-care treat to your own feet? Sure, you may not have a special DIY foot bath, but if you've got a large, wide bowl, or even just a tub, guess what, you now have your own at-home spa with just a few more additions. If you like tea, you could make yourself a cup but steep extra and add some of that to your soak. Or have some flowers you...

I Finally Gave In to the Silk-Pillowcase Hype - and I'm Never Going Back

Image Source: Night I love my linen sheets - like, a lot. I would shout my devotion from the rooftops if that was socially acceptable. So the idea of switching to a silk pillowcase always seemed a little pointless to me. I've always thought the hype of the silk pillow was a bit overblown; could a change in fabric really make that much of a difference to the overnight care of my skin and hair? However, seeing as I have a lot more time on my hands to do some experimenting (aka sleeping), I figure...

Ready to Take Off Your Manicure? These Nail Polish Removers Make It Easy

For one, acetone can act like a sanitizing fairy godmother against bacteria on surfaces (except, you know, the painted ones) at a time we need it most.

Don't Be Flaky: Try One of These Scalp Treatments From Sephora and Get Your Scalp Right

If you notice flakes in your hair or it's simply looking drab, chances are there's something making its home on your head that you definitely don't want there.

This Spot Treatment Helped My Hormonal Breakout Vanish in 48 Hours

I've struggled with acne for more than a decade. Over time, I perfected my daily skin-care routine down to a science. From finding the right cleanser to a hydrating serum that doesn't break me out, these products have saved my skin. Unfortunately though, they don't always help me combat hormonal breakouts. Like clockwork, right around the time of my period, a blemish pops up. I don't mean a small whitehead or blackhead, I'm talking an under-the-skin throbbing cyst-like pimple. For these, I alway...

If you're diligent about making sure your diet is free of animal-derived ingredients and byproducts, you shouldn't have to settle for anything less when it comes to beauty.

The Reviews Are In: These Are the Very Best Dry Shampoos You Can Get at Sephora

OK, now that we've established we don't need to shower every day, let's get real about washing our hair, too. If you're not seeing anyone other than yourself in the mirror, are you still washing (and styling) hair as frequently as you did back when you were leaving the house regularly? We'll be the first to admit that we're stretching time between washes, and know that dry shampoo can be our partner-in-crime in these situations. But what better time to see which dry shampoos can make our hair lo...

How My Skin-Care Routine Has Become a Form of Self-Care During These Uncertain Times

We were one week into shelter-in-place in the Bay Area, and I felt like I was letting things really fall apart. I struggled to find the balance of being a parent and an employee (still do!), ate sad meals I quickly hacked together, and lived in my sweatpants. I still took my daily shower, but I'd say my efforts to take care of myself were at about 15 percent of normal. Then, that night, I washed my face. I followed that with toner, serum, and my night cream. It was the first time I had completed...

I Tried Drunk Elephant's New Scalp Scrub and, OMG, Is This What Clean Feels Like?

Let me start off by admitting my hair doesn't meet shampoo often, and rarely meets said shampoo applied with my very own hands. I typically rely on biweekly Drybar blowouts - a non-negotiable beauty splurge that I'd make many other sacrifices in my life to always continue. You may then (very logically) deduce that I wouldn't have ever tried a scalp scrub either, and you would be right. But when Drunk Elephant recently released its new haircare products, it was like the pink-tipped T.L.C. Happi ...
