  • Don’t Sweat It: Can Botox Save Your Blowout?

    If you’re an early adopter of fitness and beauty trends, then you no doubt noticed the early summer headlines touting the latest holy grail of the hair/skin set. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Shape Magazine, InStyle and more, devotees of the daily workout have started having Botox administered to their scalps in order to stop excessive sweating at the gym from ruining their costly blowouts. After all, dry shampoo can only do so much, right?  

    Maybe.  

  • Is a “Cooling-Off Period” for Plastic Surgery on its Way?

    We live in an age of immediate gratification, with little to no room for any “patience is a virtue” idealism. But when it comes to plastic surgery, both the U.K. and Australia are thinking that’s just what consumers need. Both countries are proposing guidelines for plastic surgery that would instate mandatory “cooling off periods” after the initial consultation, for patients seeking these elective procedures, and many doctors agree with their thinking.  

  • Myth Busting: Plastic surgery Fact vs. Fiction

    For all the factual information out there on cosmetic surgery, there’s an equal amount of gobbledygook, flimflam and hornswoggle. Today we’re going to look at a few popular misconceptions being bandied about in order to clear the air using a little something we like to call reality. Here we go! 

  • The Latest in Weird and Wonderful: 2015’s Most Unusual Procedures

    There’s a unique intersection in our culture where advances in science meet an “extreme” section of the population and create such pop cultural anomalies as the Human Ken and Barbie doll, Cat Women and the three-boobed Floridian. Then there are the rest of us.  

  • Hair Removal Goes High Tech

    A cascade of luscious locks is a woman’s crowning glory, but hair anywhere south of the top of your head has certainly gotten a bum wrap. Leg hair, back hair, chin hair, hair down there — it doesn’t matter how many perfectly rational and functional reasons the science-set serves up in defense of body hair, the modern species simply does not care. We want our skin silky, smooth and bare, and by golly, we’ll go to high-tech lengths to get it. 

  • Tattoo Removal: Can You Undo Your Tattoo?

    While my own ink isn’t something I recklessly committed to after a night of drunken carousing or in the over-heated throes of a summer fling, it has increasingly through the years become something that I’m less and less jazzed about. Regret is probably too strong a word — in fact, I don’t think about it that often as it’s strategically placed somewhere I can’t see without enlisting the help of a mirror — but when I’m pining over the low-back of an award-season dress or shopping for a vacation bikini I often think, “Hmm… I wonder what would happen if I attempted to undo my tattoo?”  

  • Fortifying My Eye Fringe with Latisse: Part 1

    Remember when a rapid fluttering of your youthful lashes could create a devastating windstorm capable of charming the masses and clearing your desk of a day’s workload? Me too. And I want them back. 

  • How to Combat Under-Eye Baggage at Every Age

    Ladies love pillows. This I know is true. We love hordes of them on the bed, chairs and sofas. However, there is one “pillow” that strikes fear into the heart of every gal — and guy for that matter — and that would be the one that resides under your eyes. This pillow is sometimes accompanied by dark circles and a look of exhaustion. Puffy, pillowy under-eye baggage.  

  • Glycation Station: Sugar Highs and Lows

    Today is the day you face the devastating truth that your best and most delicious friend is, in fact, your complexion’s biggest foe: Sugar. It’s frenemy No. 1. Cue the tears. 

    Sugar is more of a menace than your Pilates instructor would lead you to believe, not only wreaking havoc on your waistline, but also leading your complexion in a direct line to wrinkle, fine line and sagging-town. It’s all due to a little something called ‘glycation’. 

  • Man Power: Men Get Cued in and Queue Up for Cosmetic Surgery

    Once the stomping ground of vintage Hollywood actresses and grande dames clamoring for their lost youth, the world of cosmetic surgery has come a long way, baby. From neuromodulators (Botox) and fillers, to lasers, facelifts and beyond — we may not be winning the war on aging, but we’re certainly looking better for the fight. And gosh darn it the menfolk want in on that action too.
