A few years ago I was up in Cape Cod during the dog days of summer when my hair took on a life of its own. If you’ve ever seen the episode of Friends where the group traveled to Barbados and the humidity got the best of Monica’s hair, frizzing up to the 10nth degree, that was me. My own husband almost didn’t recognize me and had to take a double take. Lots of hair gel and a slicked back look was de rigueur the rest of the week until the humidity level took a nose dive. Since then I’ve embraced the holy grail that is keratin to help me keep things in check. I know I should consider myself lucky to have an abundance of hair, even if the weather can make it hard to control at times. It seems th

There was so much to love at the Spring/Summer 2018 runway shows.

Though they — and many other runway shows — differed greatly in fashion, they had on thing in common, an abundance of gorgeously highlighted skin!

Lit-from-within skin is trending in a very big way, and when done right it flatters absolutely everyone. Whether you get the look through shimmery, matte or dewy products, here’s how to nail it every time:

The Asian beauty market has exploded in the US over the past several years and there are lots of good reasons for that – they rock! This is due in part to an uptake in Korean beauty products and rituals that put the focus on a skincare-first lifestyle. K-beauty devotees swear by the results they get from a 10+ step skincare ritual that includes cleansing twice, toning, the use of multi-serum cocktails, exfoliating products, masks and more. Though I love incorporating some stellar K-beauty products into my own regimen from time to time, I don’t always have the time, energy and coin to allow for this lifestyle choice. That’s where the buzz-worthy J-Beauty trend comes in.
