Here’s Why Your Mascara Keeps Sliding And Smudging Under Your Eyes

smudges-eyeliner-1513280223
Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by your mascara. Okay, every single makeup-wearing human in the world can put their hands down, because I know you’ve all been there. I know you’ve all looked in the mirror at noon and seen faint black streaks on your upper lids from blinking, or had to wipe away black smudges from beneath your eyes at the end of the day. And I know you just blame your “weird eyelids” or your “bad mascara” and have resigned yourself to a life of melting makeup, but here’s a little secret: You can easily and totally prevent it from happening—like, even with the world’s weirdest eyelids and mascara—and all it takes is a few...

I Tried a Sleep Massage For Insomnia

gettyimages-119202858-1513105531
There's nothing I won't do for better sleep. I have hidden my phone, set a bedtime, quit caffeine—I’ve tried sleep teas, sleep elixirs, and sleep gummies. I’ve taken Melatonin and NyQuil. But none of the above has ever significantly improved the quality of the low-grade sleep I'm accustomed to. I usually fall asleep around 12:30 and wake up by 3 or 4 a.m. That's fine, I used to think, resigning myself to a life of abbreviated rest. Some people are just meant to be awake more than others. Unfortunately for me, and 1 in 3 other people who experience some degree of insomnia, short sleep has longterm ramifications. In his book, Why We Sleep, neuroscientist Matthew Walker examines the effects of sleep deprivation...

Benjamin Millepied’s New Online Dance Workouts Bring The Calorie-Torching Choreography To You

00-story-image-benjamin-m
Dance like nobody’s watching . . . even when one of ballet’s biggest icons, dancer and choreographer Benjamin Millepied, is sitting right in front of you, watching. Now, that’s a bigger challenge. I’m in downtown L.A., in a vast and airy warehouse-like space, to try out Millepied’s new venture: LA Dance Workout. LA Dance Workout is a digital platform with short (2- to 10-minute long) workout videos that at-home users can stream on their own devices—perfect for breaking through holiday-induced lethargy. (On-site classes will soon be added to the offerings.) Each clip is beautifully filmed, against urban backdrops or majestic mountaintops, and scored with a punchy beat. The routines are divided into sections with names like “Bringin’ Sexy Back” and “Ready for the Slopes.”...

This Is Proof That Birth Control Could Be A Game-Changer For Your Acne

image (1)
Birth control, in its many forms, is something at least 99% percent of all sexually experienced women have used at least once in their lives. And while there are various reasons one might decide to take oral contraceptives in particular, there is a common and welcome side effect of them that some experience: Acne tends to disappear. But if you still need proof of the effect your pill could have on your hormonal breakouts, there's a Reddit user prepared to make you a believer. Reddit threads are often scattered with before-and-after photos proving — or disproving — the efficacy of hyped skin-care products. And while your tiny white pill isn't something you'd find next to your Differin gel in the drugstore, it does...

This stuff is a true miracle worker, trust us. All you need to do is give it a chance. Here, CR brings you five unexpected ways to incorporate it into your beauty routine.

10 Performance-Enhancing Gym Hairstyles From Spring Runways

elle-workout-runway-hair-1-1511305715

Hair often feels like an afterthought at the gym—pull it back and go—but if competitive athletes are any indication, workout hair might actually affect your performance. Professional boxers are required to secure hair with "soft and non-abrasive materials" according to the Women's Boxing Association. For gymnasts, hair must be pulled back away from the face so as not to obscure vision. And female Taekwondo competitors are required to wear long hair in a bun or a ponytail to prevent snags. Of course, taking the time to get overly done up for a workout is probably going overboard. These runway styles strike the balance.
