The Gross Things That Can Happen to Your Skin When You Wax

Aside from the pain of actually yanking hair from its follicle, waxing can cause other traumas to your skin. It's important to note that getting silky-smooth, hairless skin via a hot wax can actually yield uncomfortable or irritating results, and we've enlisted the help of two top dermatologists, Joshua Zeichner, MD, and Kavita Mariwalla, MD, to break them down. The Possible Side Effects and How to Treat Them Burns: Ideally, wax is applied to your skin at body temperature. If it's not, there ...

Does This $40 Exfoliating Toner Actually Rival P50?

Everyone, with the possible exception of my mother (who doesn't even wear night cream) and my ex-boyfriend (who still uses Proactiv samples he ordered in 2004), knows about Biologique Recherche's Lotion P50. Even if they haven't themselves purchased a full-size bottle of the pricey exfoliating tonic, they're familiar with the elusive tales of its power; its rumored ability to exfoliate, refine, and smooth the skin and turn whoever uses it into a borderline masochist who begs for the unmistakabl...

8 Vitamin C Serums The Pros Actually Use

If, like Kanye West, we were to fulfill a lifetime dream of being on Family Feud, our fantasy prompt would look something like this: "We asked 100 dermatologists for the gold-standard skin-care products no one should go without." Right away, we'd nail the top three answers on the board: sunscreen, a retinol product, vitamin C serum (and take all the money).The holy trinity of skin care is comprised of ingredients that have been scientifically proven again and again to protect and heal the skin,...

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. Not that butt hair is a rare thing: You have it, I have it, the Kardashians have it (or they did at one point, anyway). But even in a culture of oversharing, in which we talk openly about nipple piercings and pimple popping , this is one topic that nobody really touches (even though we all have questions).So we sent off our queries to derms, OB/GYNs, aestheticians, waxing and laser professionals, and t...

The Best Clarifying Shampoos To Remove All That Buildup

"Heavy" is not an adjective that we like to use when it comes to our hair. The word might as well be synonymous with shitty, because that's exactly how our hair feels when we haven't washed it in days or when that new leave-in conditioner we're trying has a formula that sits on the scalp. But, luckily, there's a solution for weighed-down hair: clarifying shampoos."Periodic use of purifying or clarifying shampoos can help remove ingredients like silicones, thickening ingredients, and other addit...

7 Skin-Illuminating Ingredients That Might Replace Your Vitamin C

Dermatologists have long touted vitamin C as the be-all, end-all of antioxidants in skin care — and for good reason. Decades of research show that, used topically, ascorbic acid and its derivatives can lighten hyperpigmentation, encourage collagen production, and brighten the complexion overall, which are three things we'll never say no to.But when it comes to stamping out dullness, C isn't the only game in town. In fact, if you ask some derms, the idea of relying only on vitamin C as a one-and...

The Definitive Guide To Picking The Perfect Sunscreen — No Matter The Season

When it comes to sunscreen options, to quote the iconic rapper T.I., "You can have whatever you like." While we're fairly certain he was not, in fact, referring to the numerous ways in which you can protect yourself against sun damage, his words still apply: There are many, many sunscreens to choose from.So when and where should you be using each type? Does one type of formula tend to work better than the others? And do you really need to be wearing one right now, in the dead of winter, when th...

The Biggest — & Most Futuristic — Skin Trends Coming In 2019

2018 was the year you bought a derma roller, learned to respect your gut, tried PRP for the first time, washed your face with sparkling water, and spent all your money on Tatcha just because Meghan Markle said you should. Your bathroom shelves were lined with vitamin C eye creams, chemical exfoliants, that ubiquitous blue aluminum tube, and The Ordinary (because of course you stocked up in a panic). You let no skin-care trend, big or small, go untested, no new in-office procedure unconsidered.B...

Can Your Skin Type Change? We Asked the Experts

I've had oily skin for as long as I can remember, and by the time I was a senior in high school wearing makeup regularly, I had pretty much tried out every little trick I found on the internet to try to permanently banish all the excess oils from my face. When nothing seemed to work for me, I figured that my relationship with blotting papers would undoubtedly last a lifetime. That is, until very recently when I noticed that the midafternoon shine I once found myself constantly fighting off hasn...

What Is Milia — & How Do You Get Rid Of It?

The first tenet of good skin care, as any dermatologist will tell you, is to never, ever pick at your skin — even if you have a zit that's just waiting to be popped. Still, the fact remains that, when a pimple arises, most of us ignore MD advice and go straight to the squeezing. Playing Dr. Pimple Popper isn't advised, but if you've ever found yourself in a situation where even picking, popping, and squeezing just won't do the trick, it could be that your pimple isn't a pimple at all — it's a m...

Why Moisturizers That Come In Jars Are My Personal Hell

There was a time in my life where I was young and carefree and did reckless things. I kissed strangers. I stayed out until the sun came up. I disappointed my parents. I lost my keys twice in one weekend. I drank, a lot, without fear of spending the entire next day in bed spooning an empty 32 oz bottle of blue Gatorade. Worst of all, I repeatedly — not once, not twice, but multiple times, day after day, for years on end — stuck my fingers into open jars of moisturizer, put the product on my face...

14 Products Dermatologists Actually Use When They're Breaking Out

It's unavoidable: Every single time we sit in the exam chair at a dermatologist appointment, there's a moment where we stop paying attention while the doctor is mid-sentence to evaluate their skin. After all, it's only normal to look at the skin of the person who is trained to tell you what to do with yours... right?Derms spend their days treating skin conditions and concerns, including hyperpigmentation, unwanted signs of aging, and acne.

The Top-Reviewed Hydrating Skincare Products You Need to Stock up on for Winter

A list of the top hydrating holy grails for the upcoming cold season! Don't be sorry later -- prep now! Winter is coming and while that means it's time to swap our fall jackets for thick winter parkas and ankle booties for snow boots, it also means that we have to swap out our skincare products. Unlike other seasons, winter significantly affects our skin because of the harsh temperature drop. While in the summer you need lightweight products because of the heat, in the winter your skin is strip...

Nervous to Try Retinol? Bakuchiol Is the Skincare Ingredient You Need to Know

You might have to google the pronunciation of bakuchiol - it's OK, we did too - but this new skincare ingredient is more than just a mouthful. It's been making its way into more serums, creams, and skin tonics as of late, and for good reason. "Bakuchiol is a botanical extract that works similarly to a topical retinol and for this reason, it is often referred to as a phyto-retinol," said dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD. Like the vitamin A derivative, it also has the ability to significantly de...

This Is What's Really Coming Out When You Pop Your Pimples

We know, we know, we shouldn't pop our pimples. We’ve heard that advice for most of our lives, but there’s just something about those bumps that begs us to break the rules.If you do give in to temptation against your best interests, there are a few things you should know to avoid infection, scarring, or simply making the spot worse. For starters, only extract a pimple when there’s a visible head on the surface of the skin, otherwise you risk leaving a permanent mark.The next step: understand wh...

The Tiny Skin-Care Tweaks You Should Make When It's Cold Outside

Photo: Courtesy of HBO. We've heard the warning before: "Winter is coming." In fact, we heard it for about seven seasons of Game of Thrones. Still, not once during Jon Snow's defense against the White Walkers did we see him ready his skin for the inevitably harsh winds and icy climate past the Wall. Luckily, we're planning on being far more prepared this winter than Snow was.It's time to face the facts: The moment the seasons change — from a moderately crisp fall to brick-cold winter — your...

Can This Hyaluronic Acid Perfume Replace 1 of Your Skincare Steps?

"Moisturizing" and "fragrance" are two words that rarely go together, if ever. But the Ellis Brooklyn Myth Hydraparfum ($70) made it happen with its alcohol-free perfume oil that the brand promises will also hydrate your skin. I'll admit, I thought it was a hoax at first. When I pressed down on the perfume's spray pump, I was surprised to see it dispense a serum -like liquid onto my wrist. It was milky in color and thick enough that it didn't drip or move around on my skin - it just sat there ...

Think Kombucha Is Only Good For Drinking? We're Spilling the Skincare Tea

If 2017 was the year of turmeric latte, then 2018 is the year of kombucha. The once-hard-to-find fermented tea drink is now everywhere from health stores to restaurants. So, what is it? It's simple: kombucha is a fermented tea that contains living probiotic bacteria. Drinking it is thought to help improve gut health by balancing the microbiome, which is the collection of natural microorganisms that live inside our bodies, explained dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD. "When there is an overgrowth...

Serum Is Better Than Moisturizer — Don’t @ Me

A lot of skin care is straightforward: Cleansers cleanse, moisturizers moisturize, and so on and so forth. But facial serums have been known to send those unfamiliar with skin-care specifics to Google, where they'll find this horrible (and, for these purposes, inaccurate) definition for the word: "an amber-colored, protein-rich liquid that separates out when blood coagulates," named after the Latin word for "whey," which is the liquid that remains after milk has been curdled and strained during...

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...

How To Get Rid Of Cystic Acne, According To Top Derms

Think back to middle school when, year after year, person after person would tell us that we’d grow out of our acne. We get it: The adults in our lives wanted to be encouraging. They threw out a glimmer of hope — an “it gets better” kind of thing that has us bamboozled all these years later. Because after countless cycles of hormonal acne, we’re here to say that it does not, in fact, always get better: A 2011 study showed that nearly half of women aged 20-29 has clinical acne.One of the most no...

5 Common Scalp Issues You Shouldn't Be Embarrassed About

When it comes to taking care of our hair, it’s easy to forget about the scalp — probably because we’re far too focused on the parts people can see: our lengths and ends. But what if we said that your scalp is the #key to optimal hair health? The follicle, after all, is the only part of your hair that’s living.While the scalp may seem to be more behind the scenes, it can impact everything from how long your hair grows to how soft and shiny it looks. Which means that, yes, those greasy roots are ...

How To Get Rid Of Dark Circles Without Really Trying

Before it was a punchline for terrible jokes about pirates, scurvy was a very real threat for a very long time. Hippocrates was the first one to be like, "Hey, what's this?" in his day; the ancient Egyptians knew about it, too, and documented its symptoms in hieroglyphics as early as 1550 BCE. At one point, during the three hundred years now known as the Age of Sail, it was assumed that 50% of sailors on any given voyage would perish of the disease. Gums rotted. Teeth fell out. Skin turned sall...

Blotting Papers Are The Biggest Scam Of The Summer

Nothing brings me back to being 14, greasy, and profoundly insecure quite like the sight of a certain pale-blue pack of blotting papers. There is no song, scent, or memory that triggers that same visceral reaction in me — the opposite of nostalgia, whatever that is, a longing to get as far away from that moment in time as possible. My stomach drops. My palms sweat. My oil production goes into overdrive. I... think I want to go to the nurse's office?That's only part of the reason why I hate blot...
