Treat the hands like an extension of your face and neck by protecting the skin with SPF 50 or higher each morning. I slather mine on throughout the day like hand cream.  Once protection is in order, what's the solution to existing sun damage on the hands? Recently Radiesse, the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation,...

Instead it's about the model, a 12-year-old boy in giant shades and teetering heels. "The cut, the shape, and the character of the garment is the crucial thing," Acne's creative director Jonny Johansson told WWD, "rather than seeking approval from society or to follow set norms."But that can't be the whole story. If the garment were "the crucial thing," it would be photographed on a hanger, or maybe...

Or so says Rihanna.GETTYEarlier this summer, it was reported that a Rihanna fashion line is coming. And, because Rihanna can't stop/won't stop/is the best, a beauty line is also happening.

She calls this one "Black Fresh Water Pearl": https://instagram.com/p/6hpV50xUcD/?taken-by=auracolorist Once upon a time,...
