  • The perfect his and her skincare for Valentine's Day

    When it comes to skincare, men need to focus on cleansing and hydrating just as much as women do. We found a skincare line that is affordable and transforms any person's look.

  • Why I’ll Never Shower the Same Way Again

    The Luv Scrub is unlike any other exfoliator you’ve ever tried. Yahoo Beauty would like to introduce you to The New-New, a column by Beauty Director Dana Oliver on the latest products, tools, and treatments that she’d happily spend her hard-earned money on. When Caroline Ansah was 5 years old, her mother introduced her to bathing with an exfoliating body net that looked a lot like the tool that fishermen would launch out into the sea.

  • The Charcoal Sheet Mask You’ve Been Waiting For Is Here

    Yahoo Beauty would like to introduce you to “The New-New,” a column by Beauty Director Dana Oliver on the newest products, tools, and treatments that she’d happily spend her hard-earned money on. Not one to mask my face with foundation, I reached for the Erno Laszlo Exfoliate & Detox Hydrogel Mask in hopes that it would get my skin back to being brighter and blemish-free. Tucked inside the thin gray and white package was a sheet mask broken into two separate pieces, one for the top half of the face and the other for the mouth area.

  • Why You Should Be Exfoliating Your Scalp

    To say that dry shampoo is the best thing to enter my life may sound like I’m being hyperbolic, but I’m really not. This heaven-sent elixir has saved me many times: When I’d rather spend an extra half-hour sleeping, not primping; after a sweaty workout and I have to be at work ASAP; when my hair is looking lackluster and needs a boost of texture and volume. But underneath its magical exterior lies a dark side. A really dark, really icky side that involves scalp acne, dandruff and irritation. 

  • Want Great Skin? Give Your Face a Hit of Acid

    Yet, the labels on our skin care products are positively loaded with acids of all kinds. While many acids are included in skin care to help thicken creams or help stabilize products, others serve as skin care power players, helping to better our complexions by exfoliating, fading dark spots, hydrating and more. We talked with Dr. Melanie Palm, a dermatologist and assistant clinical professor at the University of California, San Diego and Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, a dermatologist and clinical professor of dermatology at the George Washington Medical Center, to round up which acids are most likely to improve your complexion, no matter what your skin type.

  • Hair Care is the New Skin Care

    Remember the days when a skin care routine consisted of soap, water, and lotion? The hair care industry is following suit, naming products with a familiar lexicon — serums, exfoliants, SPF, priming mists — and firmly position hair care as the new skin care. Aside from incorporating nourishing ingredients (see BB creams), we can also pinpoint a personalized routine (like a custom skin care regimens) to achieve well-behaved, lustrous hair and ultimately, more perfect hair days, no matter what kind of hair we’re working with.
