You’re probably no stranger to the fact that stretch marks—or striae distensae if you want to sound a touch more scientific—are pretty common to get during and after pregnancy. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with stretch marks, so don’t stress if you’ve already gotten some along the way. However, if you’re looking to minimize them (or treat and fade stretch marks you already have), we spoke to a dermatologist and two OB-GYNs to get all their best tips. Ahead, learn all you need to know on how to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. What Are Stretch Marks? According to the American…

Potential Side Effects The Cost Aftercare The Final Takeaway The best part of waking up is when I finally get to ice roll my face, as it helps de-puff and add that extra radiance I desperately need in the morning. Cold therapy is one of my favorite, albeit cheapest, and most immediately effective parts of my skincare routine. So you can probably imagine I jumped at the chance to try Glacial Rx, a brand new CryoAesthetic treatment (i.e., a cold facial treatment) that promises to illuminate the skin and reduce age spots and hyperpigmentation in the most painless way possible.…

Can You Try It at Home? Potential Side Effects Cost Aftercare The Final Takeaway Addressing and treating sagging skin on the face isn’t new, but a minimally invasive treatment with results comparable to a facelift is. Sagging skin can happen for various reasons like aging or weight loss, and while there are plenty of skin-tightening treatments (like radiofrequency, lasers, and microneedling), the options for medium to severe skin sagging are fewer and can be much more invasive. That’s where micro-coring, a minimally invasive treatment that achieves scarless skin removal and targets moderate to severe skin laxity and wrinkles, comes in.…

Alternatives The Final Takeaway For even the most skincare savvy among us, figuring out which ingredients and products can be used together can get slightly confusing. Among these skincare mysteries: “Can benzoyl peroxide and retinol both be part of my skincare routine?” As far as we’re concerned, that’s a great question. We know that retinol and benzoyl peroxide each have amazing benefits for your skin, like clearing up acne and reducing some common signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. But what isn’t clear is whether these skincare powerhouses can go hand in hand and be used at the…

Building a Routine The Final Takeaway Once upon a time, I had an eight-step pre-flight skincare routine. I'd read how bad airplane air is for the skin and seen countless celebs share their in-flight regimens. So, I thought, I must need one too. These days, truthfully, I only cleanse, hydrate with hyaluronic acid, apply vitamin C, and then layer SPF. This isn’t just for flying— it’s my everyday skincare routine. No extras. But scrolling through TikTok, I’ve seen tons of GRWM videos with thoughtful step-by-steps showcasing how people prep their skin before and during flights. However, after many years as…

While vitamin C serums are often heralded as miracle products, the truth is, they’re not a one-size-fits all situation. To some, vitamin C is a life-changing ingredient that evens their skin tone, protects them from free radicals, and promotes collagen production for plump, glowy skin as promised. But for others, the ingredient can be a little too intense, causing irritation and redness—this is especially true for sensitive skin types. However, Kate Hudson seems to have found her holy grail formula, and its gentle enough for her picky skin. In a TikTok posted on September 8, the acto shared a short…

Dry cuticles can have an array of causes, ranging from the weather to UV nail driers and more, according to board-certified dermatologist Anna Guanche, MD. Board-certified dermatologist Onyeka Obioha, MD, adds that health conditions such as eczema or psoriasis can also be the culprit. Cuticle oil is the natural go-to solution for dry cuticles. “Cuticle oils are helpful to lubricate and hydrate the cuticle as well as create a barrier to other potential irritants,”…

Acne is something that I’ve been battling for what feels like forever. I was one of the first people to get acne in middle school and continued to have serious breakouts until I got on hormonal birth control at 16. Fortunately, the pill kept my skin relatively clear for 10+ years—but when I recently went off of it, my acne came back with a vengeance. All of a sudden, I was dealing with recurring cystic breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and texture that I hadn’t seen in over a decade. After trying everything from upping my Spironolactone prescription, to changing my pillowcases frequently…
