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.
Time to make nice with static, as seen at Sonia Rykiel's Spring 2017 show.
Spring 2017's most exciting message—to genuinely embrace the undone, aesthetic—is highlighted in the most beautiful way through hair.
Let us count the ways windblown hair looked fresh—not frazzled—on the Spring 2017 runways.
At Chloé, where the hair was slightly bent and the ends were left unfinished.
At Dorhout Mees, where models let their frizz flags fly.
At Etro, where the fuzz encircled the set of waves like an angelic halo.
At Tommy Hilfiger, where it looked as if the models spent the morning at one of the four corners of the earth.
Hair looked like it had air-dried after a morning lake dip (think summer camp and Herbal Essences) at Veronique Leroy.
At Koche, where the glory of the '90s hair flip worked in tandem with all the messy bits.
And at Philosophy, where surfer girl hair story matched freshly scrubbed skin—and freckles.
We know, not everyone can try this look at home. But something everyone can try is frizz forgiveness. The next time you're about to flat-iron, soak your strands in something heavy that will stomp out those flyaways—step back. Your lax hair finish might just be the next big trend in beauty. No need to fuzz off.
Up your costume game on October 31st.
He had us at hello.
Tom Cruise relived some of his best performances in a live montage on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night.
The video is nine minutes long (so grab a coffee before you tune in), but totally worth the watch to hear the Oscar nom utter some of his most famous lines like "I have the need, the need for speed" and "Show me the money!"
Also hilarious: a surprise guest appearance around the four-minute mark.
