A Dermatologist Debunks Beauty And Skincare Old Wives’ Tales

There’s something undeniably appealing about the idea that a cure to your skincare woes can be found in your kitchen cupboards or first-aid kit. But is there any truth to some of skincare’s strangest old wives’ tales? I asked dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD for his professional opinion – and the results may just surprise you. Using butter to treat burns by rubbing an unmelted, room-temp stick over the affected area is a remedy that’s been tossed around for years. And while the application of grease won’t assuage the pain, it should work to speed up healing and minimize scarring.

Current Spring Makeup Favorites

While there’s no particular theme for this makeup roundup (I guess you could say all of these products are great for warmer weather), I thought I would share a handful of current spring makeup favorites.

Liquid Liners That Work

Cat-eye, kitten eye, winged lines, even graphic lines all have one product in common: a kick-ass pigmented eyeliner. Our preference is liquid, especially for any winged looks, because creating the swoop takes precision, and you can’t get more precise than liquid liner.

SHINE BRIGHT… Tifeny Moreira

This look is not only simple to create but it’s a high impact, low maintenance style if you are heading to Coachella this weekend. I purchased clear Swarovski crystals at a local craft shop and applied them using Duo Brush On Adhesive – it’s an updated version of the classic Duo Lash Adhesive and is ideal for gluing sparkly bits to your eyelids or any other part of your face. Simply dot the back of each crystal with the adhesive and press it gently on your eyelid. You can use your fingers or a pair of tweezers or better yet, grab a friend and do eachothers!Note: It’s best to curl your lashes after you glue on the crystals.
