"Barack Obama is the Nickelback of presidents."
Everybody hurts – even Barack Obama. But that didn't stop him from returning to Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the second edition of “Mean Tweets: President Obama." (It's reportedly the last late night show he'll do as president... sigh.)
In the two-minute clip, the POTUS read tweets from haters about everything from his policies to his dad jeans. But the most intriguing message of all came from Donald Trump himself. Obama's response to the Republican presidential nominee is pure gold.
And are still best friends.
It’s about to be officially over for Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom. According the TMZ, the pair have reached a settlement in their divorce, they just need a judge to sign off on it. (There's no details on the terms.)
Khloé and Lamar wed in September 2009 a month after they met. They separated in December 2013, but have remained super close.
Khloé helped him through his overdose last year and the pair attended the Yeezy Season 3 show at New York Fashion Week together in February. At the time, she shut down rumours of reconciliation. “God forbid exes are cordial right?!?!” she said on Twitter. “Wtf is wrong with people?!?! People should praise kindness. Not question it.”

We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.
