Don't have time to commit to a 10-step routine? Just do this.
It would be nice if we could just eat and drink our way to perfect skin: a bite of salmon here, a glass or two or water there. “Unfortunately when you ingest things orally, they don’t necessarily go to the skin to give benefits,” says Dr. Kucy Pon, a Toronto-based dermatologist. “With regard to collagen-based drinks or food, there is not a lot of data in the medical literature to know whether there are true benefits to the skin.” Takeaway: Apply a topical product in addition to any supplements you might be taking.
If you do just one thing in your…
Exfoliate. “A healthy rate of skin-cell renewal is one of the key components of radiant and even-toned skin,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross, who recommends the daily use of alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids.
"Scientific research shows that collagen and elastin production starts to decline in quantity and quality when we reach the age of 30,” he explains. A retinoid will stimulate new cell production and “inhibit the body’s natural enzymes that break down collagen.”
Add peptides into your routine. "They stimulate collagen in a very unique way,” says Gross. “The more receptors you put to work, the more firming you’ll see. If your concern is wrinkles or laxity, then it’s an important ingredient to look for in your products.” (See here for more info on why they are key.)
Skin is drier now than ever before. Use an oil, like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules ($135 for 60), to hydrate and prevent water loss.

It's only $3 million.
Aside from getting your official Victoria's Secret wings, wearing the Fantasy Bra is the highest honour a VS Angel can have. This year, Jasmine Tookes gets to live that dream.
The 25-year-old model, who walked her very first Victoria's Secret fashion show in 2012, will be strutting down the catwalk in a $3-million diamond-and-emerald encrusted bra by jewellery designer Eddie Borgo.

The bra took around 700 hours to make and is made up of 450 carats of precious stones set in 18-karat gold, so it's no wonder Jasmine was so pumped to be chosen. See her reaction below.
You can watch the full Victoria's Secret fashion show on Monday, December 5.

Whether you're Team Dean, Team Jess, or Team Logan, it's hard to imagine Rory dating anyone else. But what if that someone was Ryan Gosling? According to casting director Jami Rudofsky, the La La Land star once auditioned for the role of a young football player who we can only imagine/dream/hope above all hopes would have had some kind of romantic relationship with Rory.
Watch below as Rudofsky dishes on Gosling's audition during a Gilmore Girls' fan fest this weekend.

Proud mom and dad alert.
Of course Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin procreated super-talented celebrity scions.
Apple and Moses Martin joined their dad onstage to sing a song at a Boys and Girls Club fundraiser in Malibu. Moses, 10, covered Twenty One Pilots’ “House of Gold,” earning cheers from the crowd. Twelve-year-old Apple impressed with Ariana Grande’s “Just a Little Bit of Your Heart,” with her Coldplay frontman dad on piano.
Mom and dad have some competition.
