How To Fade Acne Scars For Good — Without A Trip To The Derm

First came the acne and then came the fully-loaded pile of salicylic acid cleansers, benzoyl peroxide creams, and spot treatments. Now all that remains are the ghosts of pimples past: acne scars — and they can haunt you long after the initial breakout has gone away.The hard truth is that nothing you can buy over-the-counter will be as effective for deep-seated scarring as a derm-recommended prescription or in-office procedure, but there are plenty of at-home skin-care products that do a damn go...

Clearly we're not mad about it, because loading up on moisturizer, lip balm, and a fresh pack of face wipes is a hell of a lot more fun than shopping for loose-leaf paper and three-ring-binders.From the $2 jelly e...

Many a legend tells of the big breakout that came as the result of an early pickup by a college radio station, and while radio may not have the grip it once did, college radio stations remain an extremely desirable place for emerging artists, and are much more likely to take on chance on an artist than their massive commercial counterparts. _________________________________ Guest post by Angela Mastrogiacomo from Soundfly's Flypaper You’ve heard the breakout stories — bands who get p...

These Are The Podcasts Money Diarists Love Listening To

Money Diaries provide a unique window into the way women across the country — and the world — save and spend, but they also illuminate the commonalities many of us share in our daily lives, no matter where we live or how much we make per paycheck.This is especially apparent when it comes to waking up in the morning and getting to work. Most of us have to deal with less-than-ideal commutes to work — be they by car, subway, or foot. OPs often talk about the ways they pass this time: with music, b...

What’s Next For Jenna Lyons After J. Crew? She’s Not Saying (Not Exactly)

Jenna Lyons highly recommends boredom. After more than a quarter century at J. Crew, the brand’s iconoclastic President and Creative Director — you probably know her signature thick-framed glasses and drum-tight side-part well — left in 2017. And despite an initial compulsion to stay busy, Lyons was deliberately un productive following her headline-making exit from the job that had come to define her (more likely, it was also the other way around).“I remember this pressure when I was leaving th...

The Hidden Section At Sephora You Never Knew Existed

There are very few beauty items in this world that can't be found at Sephora.

The Eternally-Cool '70s Hairstyles We Still Can't Get Enough Of

It’s been almost four decades since the defining ’70s hotspot Studio 54 closed its doors with a final blowout party in February 1980.

Blondie’s Parallel Lines Turns 40: 8 Memorable Covers

Parallel Lines changed everything. Not instantly, but soon enough.
