How hair changes as we age

When we talk about aging in beauty, we typically talk about skin. We talk about the dark spots and wrinkles that pop up as we get older. We talk about anti-aging skincare products and ingredients that can counteract these changes. What we don't commonly hear about, though, is aging hair (other than the obvious graying). Similar to skin, hair undergoes gradual changes. So we're here to lay it all out and cover the changes that happen to hair as we get older.

Foods that give you wrinkles

One day you're looking in the mirror and notice a line where you hadn't seen one before. Oh my, you have wrinkles! At first, they tend to pop up around the eyes, forehead, and mouth because normal facial expressions tend to weaken the skin. Also, you may see some in areas that are exposed to the sun since the sun causes skin damage that leads to wrinkles.

5 Ways to stay healthy in your forties

How to stay healthy and fabulous over 40

Keeping healthy and active through regular exercise and eating sensibly is important at any age. But let's be real — health in your 40s is even more important than your 30s. If you didn't lay a good foundation in your 30s, you will most likely be paying for it later on in life — or maybe feeling it now… hello, bloat and acid reflux.

From Nutrition to Masks, Here's How to Get Clear Skin the Right Way

Smooth skin is totally achievable — it just takes a little work

How to get clear, brighter skin is the age-old beauty question — and for a lot of us, it always seems like we're fighting a losing battle.

What happens to your body when you cut out sugar

In 1822, the average American consumed about 45 grams of sugar every five days — and I'm guessing that he wasn't getting it from Ding Dongs and Skittles.

You want to take a stab at how much sugar the average American consumes today? 765 grams every five days. Or rather, the same amount that ye old American was drinking, but in seven hours instead of five days.

The truth behind those tiger stripes.
Tiger stripes. Angel scratches. We’ve all tried our best to come up with more charming names for these less than charming squiggles on our skin, but the truth is that for many, many women (it’s estimated that over 80% of us worldwide have them) stretch marks are a fact of life. Yet, for such a common malady, most of us know surprisingly little about them; and yes, we’re including doctors in that “us.”

Foods that prevent wrinkles

Aging can be scary for some of us as you start to see those wrinkles pop up one by one. You might be looking for that magical fountain of youth that will keep you looking and feeling young forever, I know a lot of us are. People are so interested in staying youthful that an incredible amount of money is spent on potions, lotions, and cosmetic surgery, making beauty a multi-billion dollar industry. But, although these products may help, they don't actually address the underlying cause of wrinkles—lifestyle and diet.

Incredibly Delicious Homemade Pizza Recipe

Time: 2 3/4 hours. The extended mixing time for the dough develops the gluten in the flour and produces a pizza crust with a nice stretchy texture around the rim. A pizza stone, available at cookware shops, creates the super-heated surface you need for a great crust. You can get decent results, though, with a preheated baking sheet instead.

How Gwyneth Paltrow Stays Slim Without Eating Less or Moving Her Body

I admire people who can motivate themselves to exercise every day. I always thought that one day, when I was all grown up, an urge to move my body for an hour three to four times a week would suddenly strike me.

What healthy people eat for dinner

As a registered dietitian, I'm used to people making assumptions about me and my diet.

Surprise: Makeup Wipes Are Actually Really Bad For Your Skin

As a beauty editor, and as a rational human being, I literally, yes literally, die inside each time someone says to me, “Of course I wash my face—well, OK, I use makeup wipes, but it’s the same thing.” Oh my god.

And because a good majority of you reading this just got defensive, clutching your wipes to your chest like a wounded animal, I’m going to patiently explain, once and for all, why you should never, ever, ever use makeup wipes, ever again.

Seeing double

Kendall Jenner freely admits that Paris Hilton is one of her fashion icons.

"At My 21st birthday party, I wore a dress inspired by the one Paris wore in 2002 at her 21st birthday party. She was there to celebrate with me that night and loved my look."

Your body is changing, you feel icky sicky, emotions are running high, and you can't fit into your normal tried and true styles — such is the life of a pregnant lady. So even when the most stylish of us decides to get knocked up, the social contract includes some allowances for the mom-to-be, including a generally lowered expectation for her fashion game.

But did international superstar singer, songwriter, dancer, style maven, and badass feminist, Beyoncé, decide that she was going to sit back and relax when she became pregnant for the second time (this time with twins) with husband, rapper and Tidal creator, Jay Z?
