Kourtney Kardashian Swears by LED Light Therapy, So I Gave It a Try to Treat My Acne

As someone who is used to getting regular facials to keep my skin in tiptop shape, the last few months of social distancing have prompted me to find at-home solutions for some of my favorite in-salon beauty treatments, like LED light therapy. Using LED light to treat different skin-care concerns is nothing new, but the increase in popularity for home devices really spiked in the last few years. Still, I had never given one of these DIY skin-care gadgets a try until just last month.

In full transparency, I was inspired to look for an LED light therapy gadget by none other than Kourtney Kardashian. The oldest Kardashian sister and founder of Poosh is constantly posting selfies and taking videos in her full-face LED light mask and in addition to wanting to test out the benefits of the treatment myself, I just thought the device looked cool. That's when the opportunity to try the Lightstim presented itself and I jumped on it.

  • 3 Cool-As-Hell Fall Haircut Trends That Are Big on Style - but Little on Upkeep

    Look to the cyclical nature of trends, and summer has long been established as the all-compassing season of ease. Pool floats! Low-key hairstyles! Vacation days that aren't confined to the white-plastered walls of your tiny apartment living room. But as the all-mighty coronavirus pandemic has shown: societal norms are shifting, in everything from holiday plans to salon requests. Now, it's fall's biggest haircut trends that are truly breezy. "During this time, most people will want easy, low-maintenance, but stylish haircuts this fall," Larry Sims, celebrity hairstylist and co-founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union , told POPSUGAR. "Everyone has been quarantined up in their homes for the most part this year. With not being able to get to salons frequently, most people will opt for cuts that look fly without the commitment of major upkeep." Whereas historically the autumnal season saw an influx of polished cuts to match those crisp new wardrobes, those are exactly the types of styles to avoid these next few months. "I wouldn't suggest any precision cuts," he said. "Cuts like severe blunt bangs or asymmetrical cuts aren't the prettiest when they grow out, which is important especially if people are unable to get to their hairstylists regularly." Below, we're breaking down the three pro-approved haircut trends worth trying this fall. Rest assured: they couldn't get any easier.

  • These Pretty Marble Mugs Are My Proudest Purchase From World Market

    My BFF Natalie is the true home decor expert in our friendship. She's always adding cool touches to her apartment that I want to emulate in my own place. One thing I've been obsessing over is her Instagram-worthy mugs - the colorful touches and sturdy shape make them the perfect vessels for sipping coffee every morning. She loves them so much herself that she often gifts new sets of them as housewarming presents. As soon as I moved into my new loft, I immediately bought these marble mugs ($21, set of three) from Cost Plus Work Market. I have to say, they are now my most used items from the kitchen. Even over Zoom meetings and Facetimes, I get compliments on them! Who knew I could be so passionate about some dishware? Ahead, shop the set and treat yourself to my beloved mugs.
