Posts for April 26th 2010
As we kick off wedding traditions week here at Sugar HQ, I couldn't help but think of the old adage of "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue." Each item from this Old English rhyme is meant to bring good luck to the bride, with "something old" meant to represent continuity with the past. If you're a bride-to-be, or if you're a friend or relative looking to make the bride's day a bit more special, here are five ways you can do "something old" the beauty way. Look for the rest of the traditions throughout the week, and be sure to check out all of our wonderful wedding content, too.
According to the study, which was published in the April issue of Archives of Dermatology, Dr. Alice Watson, along with her colleagues, treated two groups of patients with mild to moderate acne. Some went the regular office visit route, while others were instructed to upload photos of their skin, submitting symptoms questions. For the latter group, doctors followed up within three days with advice and treatments.
The outcome? Patients saw almost the same results (reduced pimples) whether they were treated online or at the office. While dermatologists spent about the same amount of time with patients regardless, patients loved the time online visits saved them, with most of them saying they'd opt for the online method again. While I'm sure "visiting" the doc online isn't perfect, perhaps we might be seeing more of these types of services available in the future. Would you jump all over this, or do you prefer the tried-and-true office visit?
I'll admit that with a few exceptions, most beauty supply stores are not the place to go for your glamorous upscale shopping. Whether it's megachain Sally's Beauty Supply or the local beauty emporium down the street, the majority of you said you're fans of these types of establishments — and with good reason. We at Team Bella love them too, and that's why we compiled a list of five of our favorite beauty supply store items.
For sensitive skin, using eco-friendly shampoos can be one way to cure dry, itchy scalp. Here are some tips on what to look for and what to avoid when visiting the hair care aisle. Watch now!
Another day, another mascara tested, photographed, and filed. If this is your first time reading one of our Mascara Madness posts, then let me give you a quick rundown. Because mascara buying is so hit and miss, and ads don't give you any idea what the stuff really looks like on, Team Bella and our friends at Sugar HQ have tested dozens of mascaras for you. We've taken photographs of what they look like on real women's lashes and had our testers give an unbiased report of the pros and cons of each. This time, we tested out Estée Lauder Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara ($19.50). To see what this mascara looks like in real life and find out if it's really as smudge-proof as it claims, just keep reading.
I mentioned to you guys earlier today that this Sephora by OPI polish I'm holding, Run With It ($9), reminded me of fresh, sparkling sand. So I got this bug in my brain that I wanted to use it in some nail art. I went Googling and looked at palm tree images and nail art with palm trees and gave freehanding one a try. It didn't work out so great. So I got out my trusty Konad plates and used Plate m29 and Plate m79 and got to work. (To find out how she did it, just keep reading.)
