There's no denying that in the world of skin care ingredients, retinoids reign supreme. They're the cream of the crop (pun intended), beloved by dermatologists for their ability to deliver a laundry list of benefits for the skin. This group of vitamin A derivatives—of which retinol is one over-the-counter version—can pretty much do it all. They reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, prompt cells on the surface to slough off leading to brighter skin and a more even tone, and decrease excess pigmentation...

When it comes to important pieces of self-knowledge, we'd like to argue that knowing your skin type is perhaps one of the most worthwhile bits of information you can have. Skin typing is a very real thing and is extremely helpful when it comes to choosing products and creating an effective skincare routine. Knowing your skin type allows you to better understand what products will benefit your skin and which could end up potentially doing more harm than good. Most over the counter skin care isn't 'one size fits all,'...

It's no secret that aloe vera, the original natural sunburn soother, has a variety of health benefits for your skin: You can use it as a primer before applying foundation, a makeup remover, moisturizer, even as a scalp treatment for irritated follicles. It only makes sense that aloe vera is the ultimate DIY face mask, both potent enough to target whatever skin issue you've got (be it irritated, discolored, or sun-damaged skin) and gentle enough to prevent dryness. The only question that remains: Is there anything this plant can't do? ...

We all tend to think that body lotion is pretty universal to slather from the neck down, right? And while it’s true, there’s an actual reason as to why specific products are created for the hands, feet, face, etc. As an example, you wouldn’t want to use foot cream on your face…that seems a little backwards. At least you may not purchase foot cream to use as face cream, and even in a pinch where you really need some moisturizer for your face and foot cream is all you can...

What makes a truth? How much proof or evidence do we need to accept something as absolute? How many peer-reviewed scientific reports turn a theory into a fact? It's a difficult question, especially when it comes to the world of DIY beauty. Centuries of tradition and practice have cemented the power of natural ingredients and at-home beauty recipes—and there's definitely scientific evidence to back up a lot of these claims. When it comes to hair, coconut oil, honey, bananas, and avocados are all lauded for their reparative and moisturizing properties,...

Pores: We've all got these tiny openings in our skin for releasing sweat and oil, but for some people, they can be more temperamental than others. Or, rather, clogged pores happen more often to some of us than others. Clogged pores happen when oil doesn't or can't flow through them as it should. Typically, this is caused by the overproduction of oil that then becomes trapped by dead cells that haven't properly shed from the lining of the pore. Makeup, dirt, and/or comedogenic ingredients can also block the pore, and...

Eczema is no small skin condition to have to deal with.

It can get expensive to find the right treatment for eczema – or does it have to be? The Common Eczema Creams For as long as lotions and body creams have been around, everyone dealing with eczema has most likely tried them all. Even while the National Eczema Association promotes the use...

Picture this: It's Thursday night, your pulling your hair into a bun to cook dinner and your hands feel that all-too-familiar mix of oil and dry shampoo that has been keeping this blowout going since Monday. (Or was it Sunday?) We're all guilty of sometimes pushing wash day just a little too far, but sometimes that delay between cleanses can lead to scalp buildup. And that is no easy task to get rid of. Don’t worry, we gathered the seven best ways to remove scalp buildup! Keep reading to learn...

The two terms are interchanged as regularly as "dinner" and "tea," but dry and dehydrated skin is not the same thing. Yes, you might have spent the past few mornings staring into the mirror, marveling at how your once bouncy, glowy, happy skin has suddenly turned rough, dull, and dry, but did you ever consider that what you're looking at might be a severely dehydrated complexion? Or that perhaps the troublesome skin you've branded dehydrated could, in fact, be haunted by a deep-set dryness? Granted, it might sound like we're...

  If you have acne-prone skin, skin care options, "solutions," and suggestions can feel endless and overwhelming—but caring for your skin doesn't have to be. To help navigate the best products, tips, and routines for treating acne-prone skin, we put together the best ways for you to take care of your adult acne for morning and night.
