Is Drinking Lots of Water Really the Key to Healthy Skin?

We've all heard that drinking water is good for our skin. In fact, plenty of celebrities and influencers have attributed their flawless and glowy complexions to them simply drinking their eight glasses a day. But is achieving healthy, hydrated skin really as easy as just . . . chugging water? The answer to that would be a resounding no (if that were the case, we'd all have amazing skin, right?) and we talked to celebrity facialist, Candace Marino, to get the scoop on what else you should know a...

Does Hand Cream Stop Hand Sanitizer From Working? We Asked the Pros

We've all been washing our hands and slathering on more hand sanitizer than we ever thought possible. And while we should absolutely still continue practicing good hand hygiene, we also need to take care of our dry and irritated hands. Thankfully, there are plenty of hand creams out there to soothe sore skin. But with all of the talk of obsessive washing, it got our editors wondering: could using hand cream immediately after using hand sanitizer alter the gel's ability to effectively kill bact...

Yes, You Should Be Wearing (and Reapplying) Sunscreen While Self-Isolating Indoors

For a lot of people, the last thing they're thinking about right now is whether or not they should be reapplying sunscreen after their 1 p.m. Zoom work call. But there are a lot of reasons why you shouldn't let this essential skin-care step fall by the wayside, even if you're spending most of your time indoors. "Daily sunscreen use can help guard against skin cancer and premature skin aging", said Dr Anjali Mahto, a London-based consultant dermatologist. That means come rain, wind, or shine, pro...

The Bright Spot to All This Extra Time at Home? These 26 New Skin-Care Products

Harley Quinn once described "normal" as nothing but a setting on your hair dryer, and, for all intents and purposes, she's not wrong.

Here's What You Should Know Before You Put Witch Hazel on Your Skin

Over the past few years, witch hazel has garnered something of a cult following, with many people praising the ingredient for its supposed anti-inflammatory, pore-minimizing, and acne-reducing benefits. In case you're unfamiliar, witch hazel is a plant that grows in North America and Asia, and its leaves and bark are often used to create topical products like toners and ointments that many have incorporated into their daily skin-care routines. But as far as expert opinion is concerned, the rese...

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...

NYC's Top Piercer Breaks Down the Piercing Trends You Can Start Planning For Now

Lil Nas X and his cute-ass dangly earring are proof: piercing trends are getting cooler by the minute. It's not just about the jewelry - although, yes, that plays a part - but also the area you choose, how it vibes with your other pieces of ear bling, and just how perfectly "imperfect" you're willing to go. Although piercing shops are closed at the moment, the latter point will be key as you plan for your next ones: "We are going to continue to see asymmetry in styling of earrings and in the nu...

We Asked the Pros: This Is How Often You Should Be Washing Your Face Right Now

For the last two weeks, most people around the world have (hopefully) been social distancing, meaning they are staying home to help flatten the coronavirus curve. Consequently, there is likely less of an emphasis on keeping up day-to-day appearances. Like many others, you might not be wearing makeup like you normally would for a typical work day, and the number of times you go outside is less than before. So, you are probably wondering: does that mean you should still be washing your face every...

In Between Waxing Appointments? We Tested the Best At-Home Kits to DIY (If You Dare)

For me, the worst part about getting a Brazilian wax isn't the pain. (Which, if you haven't heard, feels like a bolt of lightning traveling from your butthole to the back of your throat, where the audible gasp you'll inevitably be making originates.) Rather, it's the act of voluntarily spending the time and money each month to have a nice lady in pink floral scrubs completely ruin your day. I reserve these tender moments only for special occasions. For every other time I need a wax, I lean on D...
