    Why we're obsessed

    Amy usually dazzles us in gorgeous jewel tones, so we were pleasantly surprised when she stepped out in this pretty pink dress. The slinky, flattering silhouette, the saturated hue and the otherwise minimalistic look really made Amy stand out from the crowd.

    How to style the look

    A strapless pink gown is enough to get you in the spotlight, so keep the rest of your look simple. Nude leg-elongating pumps, drop earrings and a nice clutch are just the right accessories to round out your look.

     DIY Individual shower jellies

    DIY individual shower jellies fit in somewhere between a bar of soap and shower gel, but they're way more fun to use when it's time to hit the shower. You may have seen soap-tastic shower jelly from LUSH, a favorite luxury soap and skin care brand. It's easy to make a LUSH-like version yourself with this DIY recipe. Pick a color, scent and shape, and whip up a batch for a fun way to get clean. Think about how fun these would be to put in the bathroom when you have house guests staying with you.

     DIY Individual shower jellies

    Visit your local craft store to find small candy molds in fun shapes that you can use for this project. These molds work well to make individual-use jellies. When you're ready to run with it, remember that you'll need something to help transfer the liquid to the molds, so check in with your pharmacist. Yep. Your pharmacist. Mine gave me a plastic syringe that worked perfectly.

     DIY Individual shower jellies

    I added bergamot essential oil to these jellies because it's a light and refreshing scent. Bergamot is an essential oil known to have antiseptic properties, and can also help to calm skin — perfect for shower or bath time.

    Use your favorite unscented liquid soap to make these jellies. I used Castile soap, which is made with 100 percent pure plant oils (no animal fats). It's gentle, biodegradable and hypoallergenic. The addition of glycerin will help your skin retain moisture and stay soft. To keep the jellies from turning back to liquid, keep them in a plastic or glass jar with a lid and refrigerate them.

     DIY Individual shower jellies

    Note: If you are pregnant, you should not use essential oils. For facts and safety information of essential oils and aromatherapy, check out the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.

    DIY individual shower jellies

    Ingredients:

    • 2 (1-ounce) packets unflavored gelatin
    • 2 ounces boiling water
    • 1/4 cup Castile soap, or another favorite unscented liquid soap
    • 4 drops bergamot essential oil
    • 2 drops food coloring
    • 1/2 teaspoon glycerin
    • Plastic syringe or eye dropper
    • 1 (18-count) plastic or silicone candy mold with cavities about the width of a quarter

    Directions

    1. Add the gelatin powder to a medium-sized bowl. Pour the hot water over the gelatin and mix it until it dissolves.
    2. Add the liquid soap to the mixture along with the essential oil, food coloring and glycerin, mixing well as you go.
    3. Place the candy mold on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Place the baking sheet on a flat surface near the mixture.
    4. Fill the syringe with the mixture, and carefully fill each cavity to the very top with the liquid. If you find some air bubbles in your jellies, use the tip of a paper towel to gently remove them.
    5. Refrigerate the jellies on the baking sheet for several hours, or until the jellies have set.
    6. Pop each jelly out from the mold. Use one for each shower or bath.
    7. Store the jellies in a plastic or glass container with a lid, and keep it in the refrigerator.
    8. Use within a week.

    These jellies will get you wiggling in the shower.

    1. Start with dry hair and apply a light coating of L'Oréal Professionnel Texture Expert Freezing Mist to the crown area of the head.
    2. Using a brush, pull back hair into a medium height pony, brushing back as you go until all flyaways are smoothed into the pony. Spray crown area liberally with L'Oréal Professionnel Perfect Shimmer Shine Illuminating Mist Hairspray for shine and additional hold, and secure with a thick, hair colored elastic.
    3. Take a 1-inch section from the tail and wrap around the elastic, securing with a bobby pin.
    4. Next, working with the tail, add L'Oréal Professionnel True Grip Finishing Texturizing Powder from elastic to ends to achieve a tousled and volumized texture. Tease tail for additional volume and texture where needed.
    5. Braid tail loosely, pulling apart gently as you go and secure end with a clear elastic.

    Katy Perry added the green hue after her latest split from John Mayer.

    "I've wanted to go slime green for a long time," she told E! in March. "It's springtime, and I think it's time to freshen up my look," she said.

    "I'm really excited about slime green, but I hope my hair doesn't fall out."

    Sadly it looks like green is on the way out, judging from this greenish-brown style she rocked earlier this month in London.

    Celeb Hairstyle of the Week: Bella Thorne
    Photo credit: Brian To/WENN.com

    Bella Thorne makes our weekly column yet again! The young star always wears her pretty locks in complex 'dos and this week, we're showing you how to score her most recent stunner. The braided bun combo is perfect for your next special event and is a lot easier to create than you might think. Aubrey Loots, Celebrity Hairstylist and Wella Professionals Top Artist, is sharing tips for scoring Bella's style. Have fun, ladies!

    Get the look

    "I love this look, it’s very 'Bohemian Chic.' Bella’s hair is a great modern take on Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's," Aubrey says. "This style can be dressed up for a red carpet, or look great dressed down in a pair of jeans."

    1. Start off by using a generous helping of Wella Professionals Natural Volume Mousse. Run it through your hair and then rough dry with your blow dryer of choice.
    2. Next, use a light spray of Wella Professionals Stay Essential Hairspray and make a loose braid.
    3. Take the braid and do a soft twist and tie it into a loose top knot or bun.
    4. Secure your look with bobby pins. Spray again with Spray Essential for hold.
    5. Use hairpins to secure the base of the twist all the way up, creating texture.
    6. Spray one last time all over for light hold.
    7. If you have bangs, create a center part for them to finish off the look.

    Jessica Alba

    Meet your new go-to spring look, ladies. Once again, Jessica Alba proved that she's got some major fashion game in a trendy and totally fresh ensemble this week.

    Photo credit: Owen Beiny/WENN.com

    This is how we want to look — like all the time, please. As with most looks we obsess over in this column, Jess' outfit won us over for its chic versatility and clean finish. With a few accessory swaps, she could take her colorful look from a business meeting to GNO seamlessly, and as busy gals we like outfits that are easy to transition. We really can't even decide which we like the most, that delicate pink three-quarter sleeve coat, the cool perforated My Tribe top she layered it over or that stunning bag. Combined together, they create a super cool outfit we're dying to copy.

    The final verdict? Spring style at its finest. This confection of colors is pleasing to our eyes and style palette.

    Kate Hudson

    As celeb style stalkers, we find ourselves oohing and ahhing over many a street style look daily. Sometimes, a special look hits our screen and we all just have to dedicate a moment to admire its genius. This week, Kate Hudson won that honor.

    Kate Hudson

    While out and about in New York City, Kate channeled a girly rocker vibe in a gray crop top and black leather fit and flare skirt. White pumps, a black chain strap bag and cool shades were all Kate really needed to accessorize here. In true California girl style, beachy waves and glowing makeup were the beauty look du jour, pulling together an edgy yet approachable ensemble.

    The final verdict? Crop tops are a scary trend to attempt if you haven't been besties with crunches over the past few months (or even if you have). If you're not as daring as Kate, fret not, because you can always show just a sliver of midriff with a more high-waisted skirt and longer crop top.

    One Direction

    Photo credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage/Getty Images

    Are you dying to get your hair like Harry Styles and the rest of the dreamy dudes in One Direction? Probably not, but you might want to adopt the secret spray their hair pro, Lou Teasdale, uses to turn their hair into the side-swept styles they're famous for sporting onstage and on the red carpet.

    Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray.

    The thing that makes them beautiful? Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray.

    "It's a must for boys' hairstyles," she tells People of the coconut-scented mix. "I like to keep the products simple on the boys."

    The light-hold spray gives the hair just enough texture and volume to create the messy "beach" look we're all after in the summer heat... and, well, year-round. According to the manufacturer, Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray also contains natural UV filters to protect the hair from the intense sun exposure in the summer.

    Its simplicity is what makes the spray her go-to for the 1D guys.

    "I try to use two products on each boy — one styling product and one finishing product so that I don't end up piling more and more product in and it looks too 'done,'" Teasdale adds. "I'm also buzzing when I find a product that I use on, like, three out of five boys. Then it's less to carry around."

    So, this one product will help cut our summer hair care routine in half? Sign us up.

    Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray is readily available online, but it's also pretty easy to make your own with — what else? — sea salt. Our favorite DIY blend includes coarse salt, essential oil, water and hair gel. Mix the concoction in a water bottle, and you've got a summer's supply of beautiful waves that are super sexy, not crunchy.

    It's probably the only thing we'll adopt from One Direction's style, but it's definitely worth it.

    Part of being a teen is learning how to take care of your skin, doing anything to avoid a massive breakout. But just like your style, your skin care routine should evolve as you get older. With the help of Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C., and Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection, we've rounded up the best beauty habits you need to have right now.

    Stop stripping your skin

    You may have used astringent toners in high school to help degrease and unclog pores, but those toners are way too irritating to use past the age of 20. They strip the skin of healthy oils. "Instead, use gentle products with a low percentage of salicylic acid to help unclog or a hand-held device (like a Clarisonic) to gently dislodge debris without stripping the skin of its much-needed natural oils," says Dr. Tanzi.

    Use facial oil

    During your teenage years, you probably avoided any facial product with oil. Like me, you were probably afraid that adding more oil to your skin would result in pimples popping up all over your face. Have no fear, however, because oil is your friend. "The best solution is always fight oil with oil," says Vargas. The right oil will not only properly hydrate your skin, it will banish dark spots and even prevent acne. (What? Yes.) Vargas suggests, "Look for products that contain jojoba oil, which monitors the skin's natural oils and actually signals the skin to stop producing so much oil." I use Bio-Oil twice a day, applying it immediately after I use a toner and before I massage a moisturizer into my skin. As a result, my skin is even-toned and I no longer fall victim to a super-shiny forehead.

    Stick to what works

    Long gone are the days where you would rush to the drugstore to try the latest facial cleanser or cream. Now that you have your skin care routine down, you don't need to check out every single new product that comes out. You know your problem areas, and you know what you need. This doesn't mean you shouldn't try new products. You absolutely should, but now there's no need for you to seek out the newest product in hopes that it will cure your facial problems. There's no one product that's a miracle in a bottle. It takes a combination, which you now know from experience.

    Change your body wash

    Back in the day, an anti-acne body wash like Neutrogena was your best friend. Now, you need to steer clear of these types of products. They also strip your body of its natural oils and will make your skin extra dry. Dr. Tanzi suggests, "A gentler body wash is more appropriate." Think Dove Go Fresh Cool Body Wash.

    Wear more sunscreen

    "The number one thing to do if you are serious about anti-aging is to start wearing a moisturizer or makeup with sunscreen every day," says Dr. Tanzi. Forgo the tanning at the beach or salon. You no longer need to "look healthier for prom." Proper skin care for the sun will help combat aging quicker. Do it now and you won't regret it 20 years down the line.

    Test new products in patches

    Remember that time you thought you discovered the cleanser that would minimize your acne in days? And then you found out you were incredibly allergic to it, resulting in your face looking like it was riddled with more zits? Stop that. Now that you're older and wiser, you know you should test products in patches. Got a new dark spot corrector that you think will do wonders? Test it on your neck or on a spot on your face for a week before you decide to apply it to your entire face. Doing this will save you time and an embarrassing how-do-I-explain-this moment.

    Don't cake on the acne cream

    Woman applying acne cream

    Back in the day, putting cream or lotion on your face in an excessive amount seemed like a bright idea. However, a dab of moisturizer goes a long way. In fact, the less you use, the better. Dr. Tanzi advises, "The best moisturizers to use are lightweight." No giant amount of product will make your pimple go away quicker or your skin less shiny. It's about putting just enough on your skin so it can work with the creams and lotions. If you put too much moisturizer on, you run into the chance of having oily skin when that's not the case. You just needed to slow down on the amount of product you applied.

    Get ready to spend even more money on gear created by one of your favorite celebrities.

    No, the company isn't launching another fabulous designer collection. This time, the place where we deposit our paychecks — otherwise known as Target — is partnering with Jessica Alba to launch products from The Honest Company in stores.

    Honest Company conditioner

    Starting June 15, Target will sell products from the successful line of eco-friendly products, ranging from hair and beauty products to household products like dish soap and laundry detergent. Target.com will also feature 150 exclusive products, including bug spray, produce wash, dish towels and more. The best part? Most of the products will be affordable, with prices starting at $4.95 and going up to $124.95.

    Honest Company body oil

    The mom of Honor and Haven is just as thrilled as we are about her company's latest retail partner.

    "As a busy working mom, I know you can't always anticipate when you're going to need something. It's great to have a partner like Target that offers convenience and great values at any given moment," she said in a press release.

    Honest Company bubble bath

    Alba was inspired to start her forward-thinking company after the "baby-safe" laundry detergent she used when Honor was a baby ended up giving Honor a rash.

    Honest Company sunscreen

    "I was trying to find better quality products and it was really hard to find a company that I could trust," she told JustJared last year. "So I was like, 'It would be so much easier if there were a company that did all the hard work and provided everything I needed, was affordable and easy to get.'"

    Honest Company balm

    We can't wait to easily pick up some Honest gear at Target, but what we're really waiting for is a clothing line designed by the fashion icon herself. C'mon Jessica, get to work!

    Tell us: Are you excited about the new launch at Target?

OK, maybe the actual definition is a little closer to "coil of hair," but this adorably loose chignon will have your girlfriends gasping with jealousy. All you have to do is form loose waves with a flat iron and pin them to the nape of your neck for a casually polished look.

    Did you have a pimple or two (or three) in every school photo from seventh grade onward? Bet you wish the photographers had made use of Photoshop back then! Westfell frequently uses the Spot Healing Brush tool to erase blemishes from her clients' images. To re-create the effects at home, she recommends applying a medicated antibacterial spot-treatment which will reduce inflammation, diminish redness, and prevent future breakouts. Choose one that doubles as cover-up.

    Contouring

    contouring cheek bones

    The camera has a way of adding ten pounds, but digital enhancement tools have a way of taking them right off. Want the effects of a slimmer face right now, no juice cleanse necessary? Try contouring. This technique highlights your cheekbones and enhances your best features while disguising imperfections. The art of contouring may seem intimidating if your biggest makeup trick is smudging your eyeliner with your fingertips for a bit of edge, but it's actually quite simple. "The key to contouring like a pro is proper skin preparation and having the correct tools," says Mauk.

    Check out our in-depth facial contouring how-to guide >>

    Mauk advises prepping the skin by exfoliating at least once a week, preferably at night, to leave time for redness to dissipate and skin to soften. The smoother your face, the easier it will be for you to apply product to your bare skin. When choosing your product, consider sunless tanner, which is longer lasting than bronzer. Look for a tanner specifically designed for the face rather than one for the whole body, and stick to a product with low-impact color, or make your own SPF version by blending sunscreen with a pinch of mineral bronzer. Just a light bronze shade will do the trick — anything too dark and you'll show up at the office looking like an orange Muppet.

    Don't be intimidated by complicated guides to contouring — you simply need to know where to start. For high impact with minimal effort, apply product to the places where the sun naturally hits your face. This includes the cheekbones, the upper corners of the forehead, and the jawline. Use a small amount of blender to buff the tanner into the skin without leaving harsh lines.

    Smooth skin

    If you're someone who needs to work for your smooth skin, Photoshop's High Pass filter is a dream come true. On a day-to-day basis, Westfall recommends another dream come true: BB cream. For the uninitiated, BB stands for "blemish balm." These creams are a sort of all-in-one designed to help you overhaul your 15-step skin routine by acting as a concealer, foundation, and bronzer at once. If you're lacking any serious skin issues, BB cream is perfect for smoothing out your skin and giving you that Photoshopped glow.

    4

    Shine serum

    Shine serum is another way to polish your look, with the added bonus of moisturizing and hydrating your skin. If you're more of a dew-drenched fairy queen than a sun-tanned beach bunny, shine serum is the way to go. Mauk recommends using a daytime serum and applying with a concealer brush. Pump the product on one side of the brush and press or pat onto the skin, focusing on the center of the face and moving outward. The patting or pressing technique prevents the product from fully absorbing into the skin, meaning it will take longer to dry, giving you a dewy appearance.

    Under-eye circles

    Dark circles and bags under your eyes may seem like a fact of life by now. After all, you've had them permanently since you first began pulling all-nighters in college. Westfall uses the Clone Stamp Tool in Photoshop to even out skin tone under the eyes, but you can wake up your look all on your own by using antioxidant-infused eye pads. Once applied to the eyes, they soothe and tone sensitive skin. Keep an eye out for products that contain natural ingredients like green tea and cucumber, which will have you appearing wide-eyed before your first cup of coffee.

    The most important thing to know about skin care is: Don't cut corners! Good skin is the difference between aging like a disheveled raisin and aging like Meryl Streep. Invest in quality products and tailor your regimen to your different body parts. The skin on your face is not equal to the skin on your legs.

    For full-body skin maintenance, Dr. Monica Bonakdar, an experienced cosmetic physician, tells us that hydration and protection are the most important factors. What does that mean for you? Don't leave the house without applying a good moisturizer and sunscreen (drinking lots of water won't hurt, either).

    Face

    You already know that if you don't take good care of your face you'll wrinkle, but facial skin can be really, really sensitive, so it's important to have an effective routine in place. The best course of action is to moisturize your face daily and use sunscreen. My favorite thing in the world is SPF moisturizer, which saves time and money with a two-for-one protective punch.

    Certain parts of your face may require extra care. The skin around your eyes, for example, is thinner and more prone to visible aging. For dark circles under the eyes, Dr. Bonakdar recommends eye creams that contain caffeine, which minimizes the appearance of darkness by constricting the blood vessels. Washing your face nightly is also key. Yes, that means no more falling asleep with your makeup still on! Use a gentle cleanser to clean your face.

    Neck

    Your neck is about as sensitive to the signs of aging as your face. To avoid the dreaded "chicken neck" when you get older, always apply sunscreen. Neck creams are sometimes stronger than those designated for the face, but to streamline your routine you may treat the neck with any facial cream that contains retinol. Retinoic acids "are the most studied group of active ingredients for the skin to increase cell turnover, shrink pores, brighten skin and correct acne," said Bonakdar.

    Ears

    Here's a not-so-fun fact for you: The ears are one of the top three areas most often affected by skin cancer, according to Kelley Pagliai Redbord, MD, and C. William Hanke, MD, of the Skin Cancer Foundation. Why such a high-risk area? Because you're probably not taking good care of them! Always use sunscreen on your ears.

    Check out Burt's Bees Brightening Face Care line >>

    Arms and legs

    Your arms and legs are the parts of your body most likely to suffer from dry skin. When it comes to arms and legs, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! For dry skin on the elbows and feet, Dr. Bonakdar suggests you look for "creams containing uric acid, which help with exfoliation of the top dead layer of the skin," for a softening effect.

    Scalp

    Hair care and scalp care go hand in hand. Most people don't give much thought to the scalp unless they have a noticeable issue (e.g., super visible dandruff), but it happens to be a fairly common area to develop skin cancer. Unfortunately, we can't exactly lather our hair with sunscreen. Wear a hat when you'll be out in the sun all day to protect the skin on the top of your head.

    To prevent dryness on your scalp, only wash your hair with lukewarm water. We all love a good scalding hot rinse to wake us up in the morning, but blistering temps aren't so great for keeping your skin moisturized.

    Back

    Back acne is one of life's great annoyances. If you suffer from it, your perspiration may be partially to blame. Dried perspiration clogs pores and aids in the formation of bacne (sorry, I had to!), so never let the sweat dry on your body after a workout. To clear bacne, SoFeminine recommends a homemade exfoliant of lime juice and sugar applied to your back and removed with a gentle cotton ball.

    Hands

    We abuse our hands on a daily basis, whether we're typing, washing dishes, or waving them around while trying to make a salient point. The skin on your hands is very thin, making them sensitive. Wear rubber gloves when you use harsh cleaning products (duh!) and pamper your hands with a nightly massage. After applying moisturizer, massage for at least five minutes. If you have very rough hands, StyleCraze suggests mixing some Vaseline in with your lotion for extra moisture.

    1

    Exfoliate

    The skin on your feet is bound to get a little hard from all the high-heel shoes you wear. Get rid of your dead skin cells by using a callus-scraping tool. Doing this often will prevent build-up on your feet and leave them smooth. You can also use a foot scrub.

    2

    Moisturize

    The more you moisturize, the less you have to exfoliate. Use a foot cream twice a day. But if you don’t have time for that, cover your feet in lotion and then put on socks right before bed. Think of this as a deep conditioner for your feet. And if you find sleeping with socks annoying, do this process right when you get home from work. You’ll get the same benefits by simply walking around the home with your freshly moisturized tootsies in socks.

    3

    Deodorize

    Your underarms aren’t the only place that need to be refreshed. Your feet need some loving too. Smelly ones are a big no-no, but it happens. This is when you need to reach for a foot deodorant. A couple spritzes or puffs from your favorite aerosol or powder brand will leave your feet odorless and provide wetness protection, so any sweat you accumulate throughout the day won't result in a funky smell.

    4

    Toenails

    The most important part of your feet are your toenails. Treat them like you would your fingernails. Clip, file, and moisturize often to keep them healthy and strong. Give yourself an at-home pedicure by purchasing the proper tools to keep your toenails in good shape and length. Pay attention to things like possible fungus and ingrown nails. If you notice white or yellow discoloring at the tip of your toenails, as well as crumbly edges, you might have a fungal infection. Remedying what might be fungus right when it starts with over-the-counter products will prevent it from spreading to the rest of your nail. Take care of your ingrown nail situation by purchasing and regularly using an ingrown toenail file.

    5

    Skip the heels

    Once in a while. Nothing makes you feel better than strutting your stuff in a pair of sexy high heels. But the very same thing that is making you feel good about yourself is also damaging your feet. The rubbing against the shoe material and squeezing does no justice to your tootsies. Let your feet breathe in flats or sneakers with more wiggle room for your toes. It'll help prevent things like bunions.

    6

    Use blister block

    If you absolutely can't put down the heels, guard your feet. Apply blister block to the areas of your feet you know get irritated before you put on your shoes. This will prevent any nasty and painful blisters from popping up.

    Part of being a teen is learning how to take care of your skin, doing anything to avoid a massive breakout. But just like your style, your skin care routine should evolve as you get older. With the help of Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C., and Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection, we've rounded up the best beauty habits you need to have right now.

    Stop stripping your skin

    You may have used astringent toners in high school to help degrease and unclog pores, but those toners are way too irritating to use past the age of 20. They strip the skin of healthy oils. "Instead, use gentle products with a low percentage of salicylic acid to help unclog or a hand-held device (like a Clarisonic) to gently dislodge debris without stripping the skin of its much-needed natural oils," says Dr. Tanzi.

    Use facial oil

    During your teenage years, you probably avoided any facial product with oil. Like me, you were probably afraid that adding more oil to your skin would result in pimples popping up all over your face. Have no fear, however, because oil is your friend. "The best solution is always fight oil with oil," says Vargas. The right oil will not only properly hydrate your skin, it will banish dark spots and even prevent acne. (What? Yes.) Vargas suggests, "Look for products that contain jojoba oil, which monitors the skin's natural oils and actually signals the skin to stop producing so much oil." I use Bio-Oil twice a day, applying it immediately after I use a toner and before I massage a moisturizer into my skin. As a result, my skin is even-toned and I no longer fall victim to a super-shiny forehead.

    Stick to what works

    Long gone are the days where you would rush to the drugstore to try the latest facial cleanser or cream. Now that you have your skin care routine down, you don't need to check out every single new product that comes out. You know your problem areas, and you know what you need. This doesn't mean you shouldn't try new products. You absolutely should, but now there's no need for you to seek out the newest product in hopes that it will cure your facial problems. There's no one product that's a miracle in a bottle. It takes a combination, which you now know from experience.

    Change your body wash

    Back in the day, an anti-acne body wash like Neutrogena was your best friend. Now, you need to steer clear of these types of products. They also strip your body of its natural oils and will make your skin extra dry. Dr. Tanzi suggests, "A gentler body wash is more appropriate." Think Dove Go Fresh Cool Body Wash.

    Wear more sunscreen

    "The number one thing to do if you are serious about anti-aging is to start wearing a moisturizer or makeup with sunscreen every day," says Dr. Tanzi. Forgo the tanning at the beach or salon. You no longer need to "look healthier for prom." Proper skin care for the sun will help combat aging quicker. Do it now and you won't regret it 20 years down the line.

    Test new products in patches

    Remember that time you thought you discovered the cleanser that would minimize your acne in days? And then you found out you were incredibly allergic to it, resulting in your face looking like it was riddled with more zits? Stop that. Now that you're older and wiser, you know you should test products in patches. Got a new dark spot corrector that you think will do wonders? Test it on your neck or on a spot on your face for a week before you decide to apply it to your entire face. Doing this will save you time and an embarrassing how-do-I-explain-this moment.

    Don't cake on the acne cream

    Woman applying acne cream

    Back in the day, putting cream or lotion on your face in an excessive amount seemed like a bright idea. However, a dab of moisturizer goes a long way. In fact, the less you use, the better. Dr. Tanzi advises, "The best moisturizers to use are lightweight." No giant amount of product will make your pimple go away quicker or your skin less shiny. It's about putting just enough on your skin so it can work with the creams and lotions. If you put too much moisturizer on, you run into the chance of having oily skin when that's not the case. You just needed to slow down on the amount of product you applied.

    For the gradient on the big toes, apply one layer of tint starting a little from the top to let the white show through. Let dry for a minute and then follow with another coat, starting a little lower than the first blue coat.

    This assumption is what caused me to impulsively buy Biore's Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, which stood out to me in a sea of charcoal cleansers solely because it was under $7. Once I brought my new baby home, though, I started feeling more skeptical.

    The scientific foundation for charcoal cleansers

    Biore's Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser

    If you're as cynical as me, take heart: The charcoal trend is actually based on science. Activated charcoal — which you can find at your local pharmacy — is simply carbon treated with oxygen. The oxygen adds tiny, absorptive pockets to each granule of charcoal so it can slurp up impurities and toxins from its surroundings. Seriously. This is why overdose patients are given activated charcoal when they arrive in the emergency room. It absorbs drug toxins and poisons from the digestive tract so that patients don't die of overdose.

    Not only that, activated charcoal is well-known for whitening teeth, purifying water and filtering farts. Now, that's some gritty grit. But how does it measure up as the cleansing component of your beauty regimen?

    Charcoal for skin care

    The jury is in, and it turns out that charcoal can actually be great for your complexion, especially if you deal with the tricky combination of oily and sensitive skin. The absorptive characteristics of charcoal can remove stubborn dirt, makeup and oil, without fear of a chemical-based allergic reaction. Furthermore, a National Institutes of Health study found that activated charcoal can effectively remove lingering bacteria from the skin, which may prevent acne infections.

    How to find the right charcoal product

    Unfortunately, not all charcoal cleansers are made alike. I was right to be skeptical of my Biore product, because 1) I strongly dislike it, 2) it doesn't have enough charcoal in it to make a difference, and 3) even if it did have more charcoal, consumers must remove it from the skin before it can absorb anything.

    When you look for a product, make sure that charcoal is listed at the top of the ingredients. Sad to say, but some companies are profiting off the charcoal trend by dyeing their products black and removing charcoal from the equation entirely. Also, make sure you purchase a product that is designed to stay on the skin for five to 10 minutes. Most facial cleansers are only on the skin for about a minute, which doesn't give charcoal any time to absorb dirt. Your best bet is to look for a charcoal facial mask instead, like Origins Clear Improvement. (Origins, $24)
