• “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” I’d say we all are, or rather, we each have the potential to be. Once upon a time, beauty seemed easy to achieve – preadolescence and acne, pre-college and packing on the freshman 15, and pre-menopause and prevailing signs of age (like wrinkles, age <... >

  • I was skeptical too. Who needs threading when there’s a perfectly capable eyebrow waxer conveniently located in the same place as my neighborhood manicurist? Besides, doesn’t the thought of twisting a piece of thread around one strand of hair and pulling it out from the root sound downright painful? So what if my eyes are <... >

  • As a girl, I always dreamed of having an Ugly Duckling makeover. My cou would transform into a long spell of smooth, luminescent alabaster. Of course, reality set in, and I began to experiment with haircuts (a shag works wonders) and necklines (no crewnecks, please) to make my tiki hut look like an ivory tower. <... >

  • When I was thirteen, the inevitable fate of adolescence came upon me. Mercifully, the hair trends of the late 1980′s saved me from being the victim of teenage ridicule.

  • “Microdermabrasion in a jar” sounds about as promising as “Lasik in an aerosol can”. I think of both as expensive procedures best confined to doctors’ offices. Microdermabrasion always seemed too costly for me to contemplate seriously, and even if I did decide to pursue it, how would I find a reputable dermatologist? Since I have <... >

  • Do you ever dream of creating fabulous new products? Do you imagine what it would be like to have your own beauty line/store/company?

  • There is no greater skeptic than me when it comes to a spa treatment; I’m a really tough sell. While I find it all very indulgent and luxurious, I generally tend to be a soap-and-water kind of girl. And my routine has always worked: When I was about 10, my grandmother, my mother, and I, <... >

  • Rescue me! Oh take me in your arms. Rescue me! I want your tender charms. Having that Aretha Franklin mantra stuck in my head for 3 days straight was a small price to pay for such an experience!

  • It’s hard to believe a man could understand women, their skin problems and the way they look at themselves as well as Erno Laszlo did. Or rather still does, as his legend continues today. Ahead of his time, this Budapest doctor not only discovered but understood the true secret of skincare. He once said, “It <... >
