There are a lot of claims about DIY tricks that can improve hair growth, speed up your metabolism, or increase the negative ions in the air around you, but what does science have to say–what actually works?

If you’re looking to ditch the fake eyelashes and eyelash extensions, there are several methods for how to make eyelashes grow. Latisse lash serum is a popular solution to help you grow longer eyelashes, but studies have shown that it can cause irritation to the eye for certain people. The FDA warns that in addition to eye irritation, Latisse can also cause skin discoloration and even potentially change your eye color permanently. Yep.

Making the decision to get injectable wrinkle reducers — a treatment that temporarily smooths moderate to severe lines on the face — is not a choice one takes lightly. There are numerous factors to consider, including which dermatologist you should go to, what your desired end results are, and whether or not — deep down — you’re comfortable enough coming face to face with a syringe. Many people wonder what getting injections actually feels like and if it hurts during or after. We decided to lay it all out there by having an experienced derm give us the rundown on what to expect, and by asking a handful of beauty editors what it’s actually like to get injections.

HealthCentral / Dr. Anna Guanche How Men Can Protect Their Skin During Winter June 14, 2018

15539650082_997aef4867_b

Winter can be hard on your automobile, your heating bill, your furnace, and your skin. While women often settle into a winter skincare regimen with ease, when it comes to knowing how to protect their skin during the winter months most men are clueless.

“The winter season brings challenges for our skin,” says Dr. Anna Guanche, a widely respected board-certified specialist in dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, anti-ageing, and beauty. “The heaters are cranking and the moisture in the air is usually low. This leaves our skin dry. Without its proper moisture barrier, the skin can become irritated, inflamed, and even cracked.”

Readers Digest / Dr. Anna Guanche 12 Signs You Just Bought the Wrong Sunscreen May 23, 2018

With sunscreen, the number matters. “An SPF less than 30 doesn’t afford you the level of sun protection that you need,” says Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD, FAAD, a dermatologist at Connecticut Dermatology Group. Higher is also important because you’re unlikely to apply the sunscreen well enough to reach full protection. “The average person applies 25 to 50 percent of the recommended amount of sunscreen,” says Adrienne Haughton, MD, director of clinical and cosmetic dermatologist at Stony Brook Medicine at Commack in New York. “In one study, patients applying what they perceived as an adequate amount of sunscreen labeled SPF of 70 and 100 provided an actual SPF of 19 and 27 percent respectively.”

Even for women who approach their beauty routine au naturel, a swipe of mascara is a necessity before leaving their home. When our eyelashes are long and wispy, our eyes automatically appear larger and clearer, making us look more awake and vibrant. Unfortunately, this trusty makeup bag essential is a double-edged sword: it gives the impression our lashes are fuller but can also make them shorter and more brittle if we aren’t caring for them properly. There are ways to naturally improve the health — and length! — of your lashes though, without trying an invasive treatment like Latisse. As New York City dermatologist Dr. Hadley King explains, while these products do work very well to elongate, darken and thicken our eyes’ protectors, many people prefer to avoid chemicals that could have side effects.

You know what it feels like when you’re stressed–but do you know what it looks like? The uncomfortable experience of feeling overworked, under pressure and stretched thin doesn’t just make your stomach rumble and your heart race, but it’s illustrated on your skin, your nails and your hair. As holistic esthetician Tammy Fender explains, stress affects all of our body systems, our mind, emotions and sense of wellness, but symptoms often arrive first in our largest organ–our skin.

Because stress causes our body to fire off more cortisol, you begin to develop poor habits–like turning to salty, fatty foods or wrestling with the sandman–lowering your overall state of health. Not only dangerous for your waistline and your productivity at work, but also, your skin’s elasticity and appearance.

Here, some clear ways your skin, hair and nails are impacted by stress–and, more important, what to do about it.

After months of enduring dry air and chilly temperatures, the land isn’t the only thing that needs some much-needed renewal this spring. We’re talking about your skin. Your face may have kept its radiant glow, but some of us are guilty of neglecting the rest of our body.

The frustrating thing is, they don’t do anything differently than what I do for skin care. We all grew up eating the same things, doing the same extracurricular activities, and exercising the same mindful skin care regimens. To this day, we still use the same night creams.
