The Best Foundations for Aging Skin, According to Experts and Reviews

Finding the perfect foundation for mature skin that won't exaggerate fine lines and wrinkles or fail to conceal age spots, can be a truly tall order. As you get older, the foundation you used in your 20s or 30s just might not hack it, since skin requires more care and different ingredients as it loses its plumpness, produces less collagen, begins to crease, takes longer to heal, and starts to show the effects of sun damage from years of exposure.

This Hair Thickening Treatment Is So Powerful, Reviewers Notice a Difference In a Single Use

This story originally appeared on InStyle.com Rachel Nussbaum. As someone with curly hair, I distinctly remember searching, nay, pleading with the universe to come out with de-volumizing products during my tween years. The lack of defining products for 3B curls was a travesty, so color me surprised to now nurture an abiding love for hair thickening oils and shampoos. Pandemic hair loss, along with showering...less, will do that to you — but thankfully, one effective French brand has dominated the niche.

This Makeup Remover Balm Melts Away My Waterproof Makeup in Seconds

This story originally appeared on RealSimple.com by Nina Huang. Waterproof makeup is all but essential in the summertime. My naturally drooping eyelashes easily cause non-water resistant mascara to streak due to the humidity, and leave me looking like I haven't slept all night with a grayish bag under my eyes. But waterproof makeup is typically more stubborn to remove, and although wiping them away with a cotton pad is super satisfying, harsh makeup removers I've tried in the past have always left my skin dry and itchy. That's why I was shocked the first time I used Glow Recipe's Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm and Makeup Remover — it's truly the best makeup remover I've tried in the years since I started wearing makeup.

Simone Biles Stepping Away from the Olympics Is Exactly What Makes Her the G.O.A.T.

Society celebrates the success of its athletes, idolizes their work ethic and superhuman talents, and — particularly during the Olympic Games — holds onto their triumphs as its own.
