Your Face Mist Might Be Making Your Skin Way, Way Worse

face-mists-dry-out-skin-1511294559
Once upon a time, at a previous magazine where I was surrounded by beauty editors, we would engage in hourly face-misting breaks, during which one editor would spritz her face with a mist and promptly trigger a reaction of editors misting their faces in a row, like a chain of vain, skin-obsessed sneezes. But despite the fact that my incredibly dry skin was constantly getting covered in a layer of water, my skin never felt drier and more irritated. And, as I later learned, it wasn’t because I was living in a constant state of stress (I mean, I was, but whatever), but because of my face mist. Yes, my glorious group of mists were actually drying out my skin, and...

Actress Haley Bennett Ate Dirt For Her Chloé Fragrance Campaign

screen-shot-2017-10-06-at-12-14-30-pm-1507306707
Chloé fragrance ads boast some impressive alumna. There’s indie royalty like Chloe Sevigny, model bombshells like Anja Rubik, and Tri-Wizard Tournament star Fleur de la Coeur. The newest addition to the roster is Haley Bennett. She’s an actress (Girl on the Train, The Magnificent Seven), a photography enthusiast, and a self-proclaimed “sunscreen connoisseur,” which happens when—like Bennett—you’re freckled and Floridian. Bennett’s Chloé gig includes a series of commercials and print ads for the house’s latest scent, Absolu de Parfum. It’s an adults-only riff on Chloé’s signature sweetness, with patchouli, vanilla, and the concentrated essence of Rose Centrifolia for more depth. And to ensure we got the memo that this new Chloé fragrance is scented shorthand for French-Girl-Cool, we spoke with Bennett in Paris—where the...

This Japanese Lotion Has a Cult Following On The Internet For Literally Transforming Your Skin

clear-skin-4-1510779659

Lurk around the skin-obsessed forums of Reddit for more than five seconds, and you’ll see one product mentioned over and over again, generally surrounded by hearts and odes and declarations of life-changing, skin-changing love: the Hada Labo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist, which is less like a lotion and more like a super thin, ultra-lightweight liquid that sinks into your skin to deeply moisturize it, leaving it shockingly plump and dewy.

And when I say shockingly, I mean shockingly. Because as a dry-skinned human who has a complexion akin to stale melba toast, I’ve tried literally every single “remedy” for dry, dehydrated skin, and most of them—including layers of Vaseline—barely make a difference in my skin. So despite the...

Is This Age-Old Treatment The Ultimate Cure For The Modern-Day Cold?

00-story-image-stuffy-nose-cure
Perhaps it was the yo-yoing temperatures outside, or the looming deadlines inside, but last week I was battling a serious cold at the office. No matter how much vitamin C I took, or how early I fell asleep, my nose remained stuffy and red—and that lump in my throat would not go away. Which is why when I heard Soho’s Pratima Spa recently added the traditional Ayurvedic practice of Nasya, which opens the nasal cavities and strengthens the upper respiratory system, to their roster of detoxifying facials and four-handed massages, I immediately signed myself up. (The 5,000-year-old treatment can also be found at the Gwyneth Paltrow–approved Surya Spa in Los Angeles and Iowa’s destination resort, The Raj.) And so, in lieu of running to The Row sample sale with my...

This Is What Happens To Your Skin When You Pop a Pimple—Snd When You Don’t

breakouts-pimples-1508961206
As Prince Hamlet once famously pondered, “to squeeze, or not to squeeze—that is the question.” Okay, fine, maybe Shakespeare wasn’t actually talking about the patch of blackheads on your nose, or that big zit on your cheek, but he might as well have been, because when you’re dealing with a breakout and pressing your face a millimeter from the mirror, waffling over whether or not to mess with your skin can feel like an existential crisis. Because honestly, sometimes squeezing that tiny pimple really does feel like the fastest and easiest solution, since I, personally, would rather deal with a red mark than a whitehead for a week, even if zero derms would approve. Of course, I’ve also been on the...
