The best acne treatments for every type of skin, according to dermatologists

There are four main types of acne that dermatologists say can be treated at home: comedonal acne, inflammatory acne, pustular acne, and cystic acne. Each type of acne has different causes and looks completely different - and because of that, they require different types of acne treatment. In order to find the best acne treatments out there, we spoke to three dermatologists to determine different types of acne as well as the correct ways to treat each. Before starting any new treatment for your a...

I’m Pregnant, I Didn’t Change My Beauty Routine, and the Mom Guilt Is Real

I've interviewed 1,756 brand founders during my tenure as a beauty editor, and almost every woman who started a natural or clean beauty brand tells the same story: "I got pregnant, started reading the labels on my beauty products, and quickly realized nothing was natural enough for my growing fetus. So I started my own line." I've heard this story so many times that whenever I go into a meeting with a new clean beauty brand, I have to mentally prepare myself to hear it again without just saying ...

"Blotox" For Hair Might Just Make You Toss Your Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is a modern-day miracle: Its ability to make three-days-post-blowout hair look freshly-washed is nothing short of life-altering. But what if we told you that there was a way to trick your hair into holding up just as well on its own, without any styling products whatsoever? It's possible — though not without its caveats — through "Blotox."The procedure is exactly what it sounds like: Botox injections applied to the scalp in order to cut down on sweating and extend blowouts by a coup...

This Is What Happens to Our Skin When We Travel (Spoiler Alert: It's Not Pretty)

Traveling can take its toll on our wallets and our sleep schedule - that much is obvious. What we often fail to remember is how much hell we put our skin through during that 14-hour flight to Tokyo or that cross-country bus ride. Flights lift the moisture straight from our faces, leaving us with duller complexions, tightness, and even irritation. "This happens especially on long flights," said dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, MD. "Our skin is exposed to recirculated air for hours." Dermatologist...

Could This Makeup Product Be Messing Up Your Skin?

Primer is divisive. There are those who swear by it — and have the Instagram-ready skin to prove it — and those who think the stuff is a pore-clogging, breakout-causing nightmare. To be honest, we're not entirely sure where we stand. As with all products, there are some amazing priming bases out there, but we've also fallen victim to heavy, sticky, flaky formulas. So we asked the skin pros: Could this makeup step be doing more harm than good?Ahead, we answer four of the most common questions we...

How to Keep Your Skin Hydrated While Traveling, According to a Flight Attendant

Where you stand on airplane food is one thing, but there's a universal truth about traveling that pretty much everyone can agree on: it dries the sh*t out of your skin. That's because the air at high altitudes has very little moisture, which means it looks for water wherever it can. "Plane cabins are pressurized to simulate a 6,000 to 8,000-foot elevation above Earth, and your blood absorbs less oxygen at those altitudes," explained dermatologist Dendy Engelman, MD. "This can cause dizziness, s...

Your Guide To 6 Common Skin Concerns & How To Treat Them

Adulting may get a bad rap in memes, but in practice, it’s one of the best things ever. Take exhibits A through C, to start: We call the shots — whether that means eating popcorn for dinner, dousing our living room in hot-pink paint, or, after years of trial and error, finally landing on a skin-care routine that works. But that grown-up life also means that when the random bout of redness, flakiness, or hyperpigmentation pops up, we’re often caught off guard and underprepared. Exactly where did...

These Serums Actually Work, According To Top Dermatologists

That said, there are a few things in the way of finding a complexion potion that’ll actually lead you on a path to improving your biggest skin-care issues — namely, lots of confusing marketing jargon, and campaigns that promise flawless complexions but don’t always deliver.The pattern seems to go like this: The ...

Washing Your Face In Sparkling Water Is Huge In Korea — So I Tried It

As we've all learned from the ubiquity of K-beauty on the Western market over the past few years, some of the world's best skin-care secrets do indeed hail from the East, and the sparkling-water technique is no different."The idea of the fizzy face cleanse started originally in Japan and then went crazy in Korea, and now we’re just hearing about this trend," says dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D., who's working with SodaStream, the go-to home carbonation device, to spread the word.

How To Find The Right Serum To Transform Your Skin

Like booster supplements in smoothies and freshly pressed green-drink orders, the use of serums in skin care can at first seem like a superfluous, if not costly indulgence. Sure, these shots of concentrated nutrients might add extra oomph to our complexions, but if we’re already keeping our skin clean and hydrated, can adding a serum to the mix make that much of a difference?According to Dr. Alexander Rivkin, a Los Angeles-based cosmetic surgeon, and New Orleans-based dermatologist Mary Lupo, M...

The Moisturizers Derms Swear By For Sensitive Skin

If your skin is so sensitive that you have to move out of the way when your desk neighbor starts spritzing her essential oil face mist, and a gentle sleeping mask leaves you red, itchy, and bumpy by morning, we understand how frustrating it is to go moisturizer shopping. Without guidance, an aisle full of creams can look like a straight shot to acne and irritation.That's why we called in the pros: Dermatologists Dendy Engelman and Elizabeth Tanzi know a thing or two about what to do — and what ...

Why You Should Never, Ever Cover Up A Sunburn With Foundation

You might recall that last summer, a Reddit post showing a before-and-after photo of a woman with a serious sunburn went viral. On the left side, she’s shown makeup-free, her red, inflamed skin on full display. On the right, she’s pictured after using a full-coverage foundation, looking a touch flushed but otherwise fresh-faced and dewy. It’s a dramatic transformation — you’d never even guess she was hiding a raging second-degree burn under there.The internet loved it — but not because it was t...

What Are Sun Drops — & Do They Actually Work?

Makeup drops have taken many forms, from foundation to highlighter to primer. But, when the hot weather hits, I find myself itching for an SPF version, which not only shaves a few seconds off my morning routine, but also turns pretty much any product into a skin-protecting shield.Sounds like a miracle, right? They are in many ways, but SPF drops aren't without their caveats. When using a mixable product, consumers have a tendency to use a few drops and call it a day. "In order for the booster t...

I Lasered Off My Hormonal Acne and Scars - and It Didn't Hurt One Bit

I'm 16, and until recently had no acne. It seemed to good to be true. Even as I faced a myriad of stressful school work and boy drama, I was surprised that no pesky pimples had popped up . . . until they did. As a beauty influencer, I am constantly polishing my skin with the latest products. Since I take care of my skin religiously, I thought maybe I could avoid the inevitable plague of teenage hormonal acne. Little did I know, slathering on my favorite face mask on wasn't the answer to elimina...

The Real Reason You Keep Getting Dry Patches On Your Skin

Like your parents and siblings all jetting off to Paris for the holidays and accidentally leaving you behind to defend the family mansion against petty crooks, dry patches are usually something that only happens in the winter — or, ideally, not at all. But as for me, I live with them on a daily basis, in scattered areas on my neck and face, no matter the season.

These Treatments Will Plump Your Lips Without Irritating The Hell Out Of Them

Remember the old school topical lip plumpers? They stung like crazy. And if you happened to get ‘em on your finger, then touch your face, well, good luck dealing with the ensuing inflammation. Plus, derms weren't fans due to their tendency to irritate lips. A few years ago, dermatologist Chris Adigun, MD, told us something she still stands by today: “I would steer people away from menthol products — it does not serve any healing or hydrating property for the lips. It will impart a cooling sensa...

5 Skincare Ingredients You Should Never Mix - and 4 You Should

I'm a little obsessed. Plus, it's kind of my job to try different products, right? Well, at least that's how I justify it.

10 Ways to Tell If You're Overpaying For Pricey Skincare Products

And where dollar signs are concerned, quality is more important the quantity. As a beauty writer who's tried her fair share of product lines, I certainly understand this to be true. I've been sent a myriad of different serums, night creams, day creams, etc., and have broken out even from the ones that promise to fight pimples,...

What's the Real Deal With Hydroquinone?

Hydroquinone has become pretty controversial in the beauty world. One minute, it's the miracle ingredient for clearing up dark spots, and the next, it's supposedly carcinogenic. It's hard for anything to be deemed trustworthy and effective once labeled as a cancer causer. Yet, through all the fuss, experts have maintained that hydroquinone remains the gold standard for erasing hyperpigmentation and age spots. So in all that toxic talk, what's the truth? We asked three experts to weigh in. Why...

This Is The Beauty Secret You Forgot About

Illustrated By: Norah Stone Sure, people are still obsessing over getting fuller lips and contoured cheeks, but lately there’s been quite a buzz surrounding a less in-your-face body part: your neck. Despite the fact that the neck shows evidence of sun damage much faster than the face, this sensitive area has commonly been one of the most neglected spots on the body in terms of sun protection and anti-aging action. That is, until now.Subtle changes often start in the neck area — dry or thinni...

I Got Bad BO After Getting Laser Under My Arms - and 6 Other Unusual Side Effects

It might not be fast, painless, or cheap, but laser hair removal is quickly becoming one of the more preferred methods of hair loss. The main reason is because it's permanent. Why spend a lifetime shaving your pits when you can spend the better part of a year getting rid of it - for good? That's what I thought when I decided to get the procedure. And while I'm glad I did, it was a lot more intense than I expected. After all, it directs a strong, targeted laser light straight to your hair folli...
