In the last couple years, coconut oil became the fat everybody’s not afraid of. It went from being the hippie beauty aid of choice to spawning 1,000 posts on beauty blogs praising its outlandish magical qualities–put it in your hair! use it as a makeup remover! moisturize everywhere! It was enough to make us go out and buy a jar, which now occasionally ends up in sauteed greens but not much else. We’ll probably die ugly.
But now, apparently, we learn of another reason to buy the jar: gargling. Yes, you should also be gargling your coconut oil. More
This post was brought to you by our friends at Gurl.
Despite what my friends say and what people think when looking at me from far away, I do not have perfect skin. I just don’t, and that’s fine with me. Do I hate breaking out? For sure. But I’ve been dealing with acne for most of my life, and I’m used to it now. More
Singapore-based beauty blogger Bun Bun (pre-allergic reaction, above) has blogged about her skin troubles before–she suffers from acne and describes her skin as generally sensitive. As part of some recent blogging duties, Bun Bun received a free extraction facial from a local salon for a sponsored post–she won’t name the salon because she believes the ensuing ordeal was an accident (and she can’t pinpoint what exactly caused the terrible reaction) but what happened to her is the stuff of grooming nightmares.

Upon visiting a dermatologist in New York to curb post-college breakouts, we were surprised when she suggested refined carbohydrates were causing (at least some of) the problems. After speaking with a few skin experts, we found they all didn’t necessarily agree on everything, but they did agree on this: less processed foods, more whole ones. Like spinach. And blueberries. And fatty fish. And avocado. Ahead, 10 good foods for good skin.
I got to spend my teen years blessedly free of breakouts. Through college, I had a blemish every now and again. Right around graduation, maybe a little before, I noticed an uptick in spots. Then, I moved to New York City, current reigning champ of America’s dirtiest metropolises. It’s the only city I’ve ever lived where you can step over a puddle of urine only to accidentally step on a rat–pray it’s not one of the rabies kinds.
Needless to say, my skin worsened. More
The weather is shitty.
A nice way to pass the time when you can’t go outside is online shopping (well, online window shopping). At the moment, we’re interested in ankle boots of the Winter-friendly variety (no stillettos, no slender heels)–basically, closed toe leather boots for clomping down slick streets. Bonus points if they liven up drab winter staples like puffer jackets and scarves. More

Katy Perry might not have forged a name for herself with subtlety–she dresses like a rubber duckie, for one–but she may want to scale back a bit on the makeup. More
Here’s a little something about me you may never glean from reading my posts: I have acne. I’ve been told my acne is “adult acne”. Perhaps I should feel better I wasn’t told my acne is “immature”, “sophomoric”, or “could apply itself more”. More
When the video begins, Cassandra appears as she normally does with flawless make-up. She then explains she suffers from severe cystic acne (which you’d never believe) and within a minute, the make-up goes away. More
