    I swear it happens to me every time I shave, no matter if I spend an hour in the tub. It's like the hairs just sprout up as a cruel joke... and the more important the event, the more hair I miss.

    And forget about using a regular razor on dry skin. Hello, razor burn!

    That's why I was pumped to discover a new Kickstarter campaign for the Sphynx 3-in-1 portable razor. It's a compact shaving system that combines a razor with soap and a refillable water compartment that works together to give you a smooth, safe shave on the go.

    The best part? It was created by an ingenious woman, Leila Kashani.

    "It took us months to find the perfect soap formula for Sphynx. We had three quality requirements we refused to budge on — the soap had to be non-stick, leave your skin feeling smooth after your shave, and actually be good for your skin. After months of testing, we created the perfect, all-natural soap that you'll love!" Kashani and the Sphynx team wrote on the Kickstarter page.

    Check it out in action:

    The Sphynx is set to hit the market next month, but you can secure yours now with a pledge. Pretty sure I'm going to grab a few: one for my desk at work, one for my gym bag, one for the car, one for my front pocket...

    The "vajaycial," as dubbed by the New York Post, is a scrub and cleaning of the pores and skin that surround a woman's nether regions. The vagina facial is not necessarily a new concept, but in recent days, it has gained steam thanks to the famous J Sisters, waxers to the stars, who made a name for themselves with the Brazilian wax. They operate a salon in Manhattan.

    This treatment, known as "Gommage Therapy," is described as: "a facial type thing for the area 'down there,' and helps deal with cosmetic issues including ingrown hairs." "Gommage" is a form of facial exfoliation that is not typically used on women's nether regions.

    As a woman, I am horrified on so many levels. First, is there any part of us that is sacred? Between "vajazzling" and plastic surgery for our vulva, it's really kind of overwhelming how many parts of us can be "ugly." Isn't it possible for a woman to just feel good about herself? Or is it just our lot that every part of us is up for scrutiny?

    I am all for beauty treatments if they make us feel good. By all means, enjoy a pedicure or manicure or a massage. All of these treatments serve a higher purpose than just "beauty." They help us feel polished and relaxed. They allow us to feel better about ourselves and enjoy our lives a bit more. But a vajaycial? What purpose does that serve? Does it improve our sex life? Maybe. But it seems unlikely.

    I've never in my life heard of a man who is lucky enough to get in that general region with a woman who then complains about it being ugly. "Gee, thanks for the opportunity to get between your legs, but I think I am going to pass on this experience since you are just not pretty enough there."

    Get serious. This is just another way to get women to spend their money unnecessarily. Personally, I have no interest in beautifying an area of my body I can't see anyway. Keep it clean, by all means. But the buck stops there. To imply that we need to do anything more is just insulting.

    Look, I am a busy mom of three. When I want to get a beauty treatment, you'd better believe there has to be something in it for me to see or enjoy. This? Sounds painful. My vagina has been through enough after three kids. I think I'll sit this trend out.

    Would you get a vaginal facial?

    Leather pants are often worn with delicate, strappy heels but Halle Berry pairs leather leggings with leather booties and it works even as a casual weekend look for winter.

    With its simple silhouette and metallic accents, this black v-neck jumpsuit looks a lot like something Katniss might wear to one of her many post-Games functions.

    Sure, she spends most of her time fending off killers in the Arena, but during promo tours and TV spots, Katniss gets all dolled up just like Jennifer.

    There's a reason they call Katniss the girl on fire, you know, and fiery red dresses like this one earned her the name.

    In front of the cameras, both ladies always go for glam statement gowns, but in their downtime, earthy, darker tones in casual styles reign over their style game.

    During the post-Games promo tour, Katniss tries her best to graciously visit each District, and we see a softer side of her in cute coats and soft colors. If we didn't know better, we'd say Jenn took a page out of her character's book in this chic coat dress.

    Jenn's edgy, sexy mini from this year's Vanity Fair Oscars party sure does remind us of some of the bolder styles Katniss dons as she comes into her own.

    Fans of the books and movies know how much Katniss' stylist, Cinna, liked to push style boundaries. This dark and mysterious look definitely seems like it would meet his approval.

    Some wonder if the hassle of waking up in the wee hours of the morning or looping around the parking lot for minutes to get settled for a shopping spree is worth it, but I am here to say: Yes, it is.

    Most notably, wondering why our skin is flaking off like snowfall. We caught up with women's health and anti-aging expert Dr. Susan Lin to find out how to troubleshoot dry winter skin with five tips that take less than five minutes each.

    1. Hang a wet towel over your door

    Moisten a bath towel before bedtime, and hang it over your door frame before going to sleep at night. Doing so emulates the effect of a humidifier, for a fraction of the cost. "A simple wet towel works to hydrate the air," explained Lin, which can prevent dry patches from forming.

    2. Seal your lotion with oil

    After using a moisturizer on your dry patches, seal it in with a product like Vaseline or coconut oil. "You can use any petroleum jelly, natural oil or vitamin C serum," said Lin. Oils hold in your skin's natural moisture, which can revitalize dryness overnight.

    3. Ban hot showers

    It's tempting to warm up in a blazing hot shower, but Lin advises against the practice. "Wash with cooler water in your shower," she said. "If you must use hot water, keep your shower short to prevent further dryness."

    4. Choose a non-lathering soap

    Lathering is synonymous with cleaning, right? Nope, says Lin, lathering just strips the skin of its protective outer layers. "Use natural soaps fortified with essential oil instead. Moisturizing soaps shouldn't lather."

    5. Reap the benefits of toner

    Finally, if your skin still resists moisture after you troubleshoot, Lin suggests that you invest in one or two products that can tone and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out. "A balancing toner both exfoliates dry, flaky skin, while soothing underlying irritation," she said. A good toner also avoids the irritation that can occur with harsh exfoliants. She suggests MD Skin Balancing Solution for deeply troubled winter skin.

    Now get out there and enjoy the snowfall — you know, the variety that doesn't come from your skin.

    To be fair, this is not the first weird beauty thing. There's been urine, bee venom, "vampire" blood, placenta and even a highly toxic bacteria that could kill you (that's Botox, by the way), and those were just in the past couple of years. But beef fat, also known as tallow, is the most recent trend to jump from your plate to your face. And it might just be the grossest yet.

    Now before you get all horrified, here are some facts: That stuff has actually been used as a natural emollient for eons. Back in the days when nothing was wasted, our ancient foremothers used tallow to make candles, soap, cleaners and, yes, lotions and even lip balms. All natural, you say? Indeed. There are no harsh chemicals like sulfates and phthalates, and using cow parts does sound a lot more wholesome than oil-based petroleum products (that's what Vaseline is!).

    And while you could, I suppose, just buy a nice steak and smoosh it around — dinner and a spa treatment! — most people render the fat first, a process which clarifies it, and then use it as a base for other ingredients, like herbs, scents and other emollients. Proponents say you must use only the fat of grass-fed and pastured cows, as their higher nutrient profile will enhance your skin, and the fat, factory-farmed animal is full of harmful hormones and antibiotics. They say the end result is a smooth, non-beef-scented, light face cream. (And hey, if you start with a milk facial and follow it with a whipped cream body butter, then you'll get the full bovine experience!)

    That said, a lot of the claims on breathless blogs and beauty sites may not be true. While beef fat is definitely moisturizing, any other sells — like saying it's anti-inflammatory or antimicrobial or anti-aging — don't have any science and very little experience to back them up, LA-based dermatologist Karen Stolman told Racked.

    "Tallow is made up of fatty acids, so it would only fit in the emollient category," Stolman says. Because of its molecular structure, the antioxidants that exist in tallow sit on the surface of the skin and are unable to penetrate to where they can do the most good.

    Still, when it comes to smearing something on my face — a necessity for cold winter weather — this sounds intriguing. Black smelly goo, or Sunday dinner? It's a hard choice!

    Would you try this?

    I'm using one of my favorite bold red lipsticks of all time, L'Oreal Colour Riche in British Red. You can use any color you choose, but bold colors tend to have the most range from subtle to vivid. So, don't be frightened by the bright color you see in the store.

    1. Make lipstick into a lighter lip stain

    Lipstick stain

    Apply even the brightest of lip colors like a soft, natural stain by swiping your finger across the surface, then tapping and pressing the color onto lips. Build slowly and make sure to apply sparingly. This look is "I woke up like this" sexy and also a great way to make a bright "what was I thinking?" color more wearable.

    stain-after

    2. Make any lipstick into lip gloss

    gloss

    Apply a clear gloss or lip balm first. Next, swipe lipstick lightly on top. The two textures will mesh to create a glossy, juicy pout. When the winter winds are whipping your hair back and forth, this application is both hydrating and reminiscent of summer.

    3. Give any lipstick a satin finish

    satin finish

    This one is easy because lipstick is at its creamiest, most satiny texture applied straight from its tube. There is something retro and ritual about it.

    4. Give any lipstick a matte finish

    matte finish

    No need to buy a separate lipstick to rock the matte trend. Just transform the one you already own. Apply one coat from the tube, then blot lips with a tissue and dust a translucent powder over lips. Reapply and blot again. This technique is also great for creating budge-proof color that lasts longer.

    Confused on what color blush to pair with your lipstick? Using your lipstick as a cream blush will definitely erase any matching concerns. I like to apply a bit of lipstick to my ring finger and then lightly tap onto the apples of the cheeks and sweep back.

    She also knows that she may fall into a deep slumber only to be rescued by a Prince's kiss. Let's not forget the fairest of them all: She manages to be loved for cleaning after seven short men. Wow, the world we have created for our beautiful creatures.

    I watched all these cartoons. I imagined my prince choosing me over all the others. I imagined dancing across the ballroom while everyone's eyes followed my graceful steps. I was the envy of every ball in every childhood fantasy.

    These fantasies were quite a contrast to my reality at home. Now allow me to elaborate before you jump to conclusions, I had a fantastic childhood.

    From as young as I can remember my mother kept my hair short. As a toddler this meant wild red curls. The majority of my pictures were of me in funny poses. One with my father's big glasses, another with ketchup all over my face and another swinging off a gate at our home. There are very few pictures where I am sitting like a pretty proper girl with perfect clips in my hair. In fact I remember always getting scraped and having yet another bruise on my knee.

    As I got a little older, my classmates had perfect pigtails and long ponytails or fancy clips. I remember looking at the flowing locks of hair wishing I had the same. I had a boy cut. Yes, famously known as the "Diana Cut." Surprisingly, I looked nothing like Princess Diana. Instead I looked like a skinny boy with bruised knees and short black hair, wearing a dress. In fact I once went on a strike and refused to go to the salon so my mom was forced to grow out my hair. I think I lost the battle when I started looking like a 1800s philosopher with sideburns and thick hair on top.

    According to my mom, it was so I could enjoy being a kid. So I could run, jump, swing from the monkey bars without having to worry about a ponytail or braids getting undone.

    Finally, I started looking like a girl. Nonetheless, it was a long journey. I still was not able to do what other teenage girls did. For some reason, I was not allowed to wear lip gloss, blush or mascara. Instead I would get a Nivea face cream, some nice clothes and I was sent on my way.

    This actually lasted all the way to high school. I finally put on eyeliner during senior year in high school and also experimented with lipstick. But by then, all the girls were way ahead of me. They had been putting on makeup for years. They knew what foundation, blush, concealer and primer was. I was just getting started, there was no way I could catch up. After all, I just realized I could straighten my hair.

    So, I am assuming when you read the scenario I describe above you feel very sorry for me. I sound like a plain Jane feeling like an ugly duckling when all she needed was a pretty set of pigtails and lip gloss.

    Well, here is the catch: I never felt ugly, and never even knew I was a plain Jane. I never felt I needed lip gloss and I certainly never felt I needed any concealer to conceal anything, ever. Other than wanting long locks of hair, I was simply perfect in my mind.

    In fact now that I look at pictures of the plain Jane I am so surprised about how pretty I felt inside. I only know that because I was able to try so many new things, take risks and excel in so many different things in school that I must have honestly thought I was pretty amazing all the way around. I am not saying this to brag, I am simply analyzing how a plain Jane surrounded by beauty queens managed to be a well-rounded, extremely confident young girl. I did see not myself the way I see myself in those photos now. Now that I know the power of concealer, blush and eyeliner. I also did not see myself perhaps how others saw me.

    I saw me how my mother saw me.

    My mother never called me beautiful. In fact she never called anyone beautiful. My mother only talked about other girls as smart, funny, classy or confident. Thus, naturally I started to appreciate those qualities in other girls and wanted to emulate myself to be a girl with such attributes. Thus, in turn, others responded to me in kind. I thought I had it all and knowing that I knew that, they believed it too. What a lesson for life.

    Beautiful was powerless to me. It was a word that had no value in my mother's eyes. It was a happy accident and perhaps why it was never impressed upon in my home.

    When I look at my pictures as a teenager, I see the brilliance of it all. The calculated strategy my mother imposed on me to help me gain inner confidence without relying on my exterior. In fact it was not until I reached adulthood, mid-20s did I realize how others viewed me physically. It was through the eyes of strangers that I realized how much people really respond to and judge you on your looks. Luckily, I had blossomed from a plain Jane to someone who understood the power of MAC and Prescriptives makeup by then. It was actually a disheartening reality. Especially when I realized that older women analyze the beauty of younger girls. Women are unnecessarily tough on others. Perhaps it is because a lot of women have been victims of the cycle themselves, always feeling that they were not pretty enough.

    Just last week, my mother was casually telling me why I had a boy cut when I was 4. It went beyond the fact that she wanted me to run and jump without hair in my face. She simply looked into the face of her granddaughter (my 2-year-old daughter) and elaborated, "You looked so cute, the short hair was part of your charm." How wonderful I feel even now to hear those words. My mother really thought that, even as a child, her daughter's charm was the most important.

    I have a daughter with wild beautiful curls and I let them run wild. They jump as she jumps. I can only hope I make her feel beautiful in the same way my mother made my feel beautiful: by never telling her.

    To properly trim your cuticles, you'll need cuticle removing solution. This can be picked up at Walmart for less than five dollars. You'll also need a basic nail kit that includes a cuticle trimmer, a cuticle pusher and a nail buffer to get the best results.

    The most important thing to remember when caring for your cuticles is to be careful. If you push or pull too hard, you may rip the skin and bleed. Make sure to be gentle and your results will be much better. Rubbing your nails with cuticle oil after you're finished is the best way to keep your nails looking great.

    The fact is, in today's society, the choice not to shave one's armpits can be a shocking one. I have known many a man who has reacted with disgust upon hearing that a woman chooses not to shave there. But what if it were pink? Or blue? Or some other electric shade that calls undeniable attention to the underarm region?

    For some women, the answer is a resounding yes.

    Dyeing one's armpit hair seems to be a trend on the rise. YouTube is full of videos of women who have taken the colored armpit plunge. Their reasons are varied. Some just thought it looked cool. Others saw it was a trend and wanted to give it a shot. For others, it has been a matter of the "carpet matching the drapes." If you have never heard that expression, suffice it to say: The color on one's head ought to match the hair elsewhere on the body.

    For some, this means their blue hair needs a friend. Or two. But would real women do this?

    I have to admit that when I first saw the photos, my instinct was to be horrified. But after watching the videos and seeing a few more photos, the idea grew on me. The truth is, I (and many other women) have never really had armpit hair. From the day I grew it, I started shaving it. That's just the norm in our culture.

    The same is true of my leg hair and bikini line. It's unsightly and part of most women's beauty ritual to remove. But it's not natural. Women who want to rebel against our rigorous (and often ridiculous) beauty standards have always chosen to flaunt their hair.

    But how is this different than shaving?

    The fact is, if women are seeking an end to the rigid beauty standards they have had to live up to for years, they won't find that here. The fact is, any change to a woman's natural look is automatically "unnatural." So whether you are waxing, shaving, using depilatory cream or dyeing it pink, your armpit hair is anything but natural.

    Want to fight convention? Go for the long hair. Want to go against the standards? Don't dye it pink.

    It's cute. It's funny. But you are kidding yourself if you think it's progress.

    I barely have a moment to rummage through Pinterest let alone find the time and patience to create said hairdo, given the time crunch to get everything done before heading home to see family. Any attempt I make would be a far cry from any internet-worthy photo.

    Easiest trick in the book that many don't schedule or even think to do: Get a blowout. It lasts for days and can easily lift your entire look.

    My new-found friends at Kolorbar NYC felt like family the minute I met them, and gave me the skinny on what it takes to get magazine-worthy hair, and how to make it last throughout the holiday.

    I tend to think I do a great job air drying, but getting a professional blowout takes you from Kurt Cobain (love me some Kurt) to feeling like a semi-accomplished adult.

    What I thought I woke up looking like:

    What I actually looked like:

    GIF credit: Giphy.com

    Here are some of my tips for getting the perfect blowout just in time for the holidays:

    1. Do your reserach

    Always get a blowout from places that use the highest quality products. Kolorbar uses sulfate-free Bumble & Bumble products, so that was a check in the box for me.

    2. Ask for referrals

    Before making an appointment, ask the salon who their "go-to" blowout maven is. When you go to a restaurant, you ask the waiter what the must-have dishes are. This is no different. I was told Marjana would have me looking like new, and she was a doll.

    3. Make it last

    Put your hair up at night to extend the life of your style. Most women complain of grease or creases. Creases are easily solved with the right hair tie. Stay away from elastics and use cloth hair ties, which most salons now carry. For any grease, dry shampoo at the scalp is your best bet.

    When going out to run errands, walk the dog, you name it, just tie it up to preserve your volume.

    4. Touch ups

    Use your hair dryer on low heat and take a round brush to the front pieces of your hair to retrieve lost volume. This is another great time to hit the roots with dry shampoo.

    What a difference a quick blowout can make!

    For any of you who need a holiday pick-me-up, a blowout is one of the best things you can do for yourself and saves time in the long run. Not to mention, your future mother-in-law may just think you have it all together.

    The video takes one beautiful model through 100 years of different looks, starting in 1910. It's truly incredible.

    For me, someone born in the late 1970s who didn't really do much with my hair until the 1990s, it didn't offer such a strong retrospective. But it was incredibly cool all the same. What's amazing is that just with some curlers, makeup, hairspray and time, a person can look like they belong in any decade. Don't believe me? Check out the before:

    Before Shot

    Just a normal woman, right? I mean, OK, obviously she's beautiful. But she looks like someone with today's style. But just you wait... Here she is in her 1920s look:

    1920's look

    It's so Clara Bow, right? I love the look of the little bit of lipstick in the middle and the perfectly coiffed hair. Then we go forward 10 years... The look from the 1930s is by far my favorite:

    1930's style

    I love the soft waves. It's just a beautiful look. More than any other decade, I think it is what I might describe as "classic." The 1980s on the other hand? Not so much! Here is the worst look:

    1980's look

    Bad news, right? What were they thinking? The funny thing is I remember that decade. I remember my teenage babysitters with their teased and crimped hair. I remember their blue eyeshadow and frosted pink lips. It was a look I loved. Then. Now it just looks ridiculous. Be gone, 1980s!

    It seems in recent years we have embraced a more natural, tousled look. I am a big fan. What will come next? Only time will tell! But I hope they can add an extra 10 seconds to the video per decade. I'd love to see it again in 100 years!

    Do you ever have those days where you need your hair off your neck? The obvious go-to style is a ponytail. But how many times have you tried to do a quick ponytail that ends up falling flat during the day? In this how-to video, Allison Pynn shows you a few tricks to keep your ponytail where you want it. Her number one trick is to make two smaller ponytails to start and combine them together to create more volume that stays for as long as you need it to.

    Beyoncé's "7/11" video makes all kinds of interesting holiday fashion statements that we can now steal — thanks to Hollywood Reporter's Spring mobile app.

    No, you won't be competing in an auction in which the highest bidder scores the actual "Ugly Holiday Ski Lodge Sweater" Bey wears in the video — no one has time for all that. Instead, you'll fork over $40 and buy yourself a lovely replica of the red knit sweater, as well as other items like the light blue "No Angel" tee she wears. Then you'll pair them with underwear and knee pads and everyone will think you've lost your damn mind.

    Beyonce 7/11 video clothes

    After you've shopped Beyoncé's video shoot, don't stop there — you haven't completed the Beyoncé-ification of your body from head to toe quite yet. Your next purchase will have to be her new nail wrap collection that she created with beauty company NCLA and her personal manicurist, Lisa Logan, and which, at $18 each, I'm betting are selling like hot cakes on shop.Beyonce.com.

    Beyonce NCLA nail wraps

    Want plaid nails like the ones Bey wore in her "Flawless" video? She's got you covered. Maybe you prefer rainbow nails, jewel-toned mosaics from her "No Rest in the Kingdom" video or black and white nails that announce to the world "I Come With a Side of Trouble" — no matter that you'll be wearing them while spending your Friday night putting three kids in time-out. Remember: Beyoncé has a toddler, too, and is just like us.
