But between the growing popularity of plant-based diets and the appetite for clean beauty products free from harmful chemicals, it seems we are more conscious than ever of what we put into and on to our bodies.

The Best Products For Crepey Skin, According To Skin Care Experts

If you’re talking about paper streamers to hang in the gym, then “crepe” is a perfectly good word. But when you’re talking about your eyes, face, neck, hands, arms and even (ugh) your knees, then it becomes something truly dispiriting.

I Don’t Do Skin Care, but I Swear By This Face Mask

I do not wear makeup. It’s not a habit I picked up, and I was also fortunate that during the coming-of-age years, my skin was relatively clear. The endless tubes of lipstick, cakey (or not) foundations, eyeshadows, and blush were overwhelming. It didn’t help that I spent 10 years as an ice skater, where cakey make-up was obligatory.

Vanessa Hudgens And Madison Beer On Their Skin Care Brand, Know Beauty

Vanessa Hudgens and Madison Beer are, in some ways, each other’s opposite. Hudgens is bubbly and prone to laugh, while Beer is quiet and more reserved. They don’t finish each other’s sentences, though Hudgens frequently ends hers with, “What about you, Mad?” They’re not best friends, nor, in this Zoom to promote their new skin care line, are they trying to present as such.
