I Got Undereye Fillers For the First Time, and the Results Are Game-Changing

I didn't grow up trying on my mom's lipstick or learning passed-down beauty secrets. A California flower child through and through, my mother has always been all about aging naturally, so things like Botox, dermal fillers, plastic surgery, or any other face-altering procedures were, if I'm being honest, scoffed at in my family for the majority of my life, written off as things that only serve to make older people look silly. Of course times have changed, even since I graduated from college near...

4 Skincare Apps to Try If You Can't Get a Quick Derm Appointment

If you live in a rural area, you're probably used to having to wait weeks to see a dermatologist. It may seem normal to you, but the delay is actually because of an alarming shortage of dermatologists in this country. Recent studies have estimated that there are about 3.3 derms per every 100,000 people. While self-diagnosing serious conditions such as melanoma or skin cancer isn't advisable, you probably don't want to wait three weeks to talk to a doctor about a breakout you're having right no...

I Haven’t Moved My Forehead in 14 Years, and It’s the Best Anti-Wrinkle Trick Ever

Please join me on a brief journey back in time. The year is 2005, and I'm a fledgling beauty assistant at Lucky Magazine (RIP) just trying to figure out how to book car service and program my boss's Palm Pilot (a lot has changed in the last decade and a half). Botox has only been FDA-approved for aesthetic treatments since 2002, and it's all anybody can talk about - the miracle injection that stops your forehead muscles from making repetitive movements, thereby smoothing (and maybe even prevent...

How To Actually Get Rid Of A Keloid — According To A Dermatologist

The aftermath of a piercing should be an uncomplicated experience — but it's not unheard of to get an infection, or for an unidentified fleshy bump to pop up right near your brand-new piercing hole.

Dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, explains that it's an area of irregular fibrous tissue that usually forms at the site of ...

The Real Reason Your Stretch Marks Are So Damn Itchy

Like lighting strikes and fingerprints, no two stretch marks are exactly alike. They can appear on your butt or hips or back or breasts or stomach or really anywhere your skin might stretch. The marks, which are technically scars, can reach up vertically or branch out like a tree or wind along your curves. They can vary in color from bright white to deep red. Oh, and they can itch — like really itch.It's a phenomenon that we've experienced ourselves that — to be honest — concerned even us. It's...

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. But if you've ever sought to conceal yours, you probabl...

These Are The Best Dandruff Shampoos, According To Dermatologists

Dandruff is one of those common issues many of us have yet shy away from speaking about. Having white flakes fall on your black turtleneck has been portrayed in beauty campaigns and commercials as a nightmare, but the reality is that dandruff is super common and doesn't have to prevent you from feeling fabulous in black — or in general. Some cases are mild, and others more severe, but thankfully, with the right regimen, dandruff can be easily controlled.Stephen Pullan, a trichologist at the Phi...

These Non-Irritating Exfoliators Are Here To Save Your Winter Skin

The Anti-Aging Treatments Pain Scale You Need To Know About

For Allure, by Katie Becker. Discomfort and beauty are always in tension, so we teach ourselves the algorithm of: Is it worth it? We learn the calculations between ouch and better skin (or flatter abs, or a firmer jawline, or...). But you can't do the math without knowing what kind of pain you're in for. We went to the people who know best—the patients—to find out exactly what it feels like to be on the receiving end of all those needles, blades, and lasers. *Pain Meter runs on a scale of 1-5. B...

9 Acne Products Beauty Editors Swear By

Here's a universal, and unfortunate, truth: We all get zits. Pre-teens, adults, men, women, and, yes, even beauty editors with bathrooms that look like drugstores.And while editors don't display their go-to blemish-clearing formulas front-and-center (that's reserved for Tom Ford perfumes), don't be mistaken: They have entire arsenals. They’re not all emergency formulas, either. That’s because after years of talking to dermatologists (never about themselves, no, never), they've learned that clea...

The Skin-Care Products You Need To Use At Every Age

Fighting the signs of aging is like setting up a 401(k) for your skin. You want to start early, making contributions that will pay off decades later. Of course, you can invest in your skin at any time, but the sooner you start, the less expensive it’ll be to undo the damage later. “It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin,” says Jessica Wu, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist in Los Angeles. “The more you do now to prevent the signs of aging, the less you’ll have to do down the road.” The...
