Remember the first makeup you had as a little girl? I’ll bet it tasted like strawberries, fit perfectly in your pocket and triggered a collection (or should I say obsession?) of flavors and colors that took up every free inch of surface space on your dresser—well into your teenage years.

A new baby is a bundle of joy—there’s no doubt about it. But those squiggly, purplish lines left running across your once even-toned skin after Sweetie’s tucked safely in your arms? Not so much. A reader recently asked if there’s anything she could do to make her stretch marks disappear.
Life is full of surprises. Just when you think you’ve got it together, something (or someone) comes along and turns it all upside down. Well today, ladies, I’m that someone. I’m going to point out a few mistakes many of us make in our daily beauty routines—and show you how to fix them.
If it’s been one of those days (or weeks, or even months), more than just your nerves may be frazzled. From unkempt hair to gnawed-up nails, stress takes a toll on your appearance—not to mention the number it does on your insides. But I’ve got good news. You can tackle tension and tend to your looks in one easy step with these soothing, pampering products.
You know that non-clumping mascara you love? That irresistibly tingly lip gloss? The puffy under-eye circle cream? They all have one thing in common: chemicals. All those dazzling effects come at a high price (and I’m not talking about sticker tags, here).
In order for many beauty products to work their magic, manufacturers add substances such as sulfates (which make extra-bubbly body washes), phthalates (for less-stiff hairspray), lead (to make lipstick “pearly”), parabens (to keep bacteria at bay) and fragrances (which may be concocted from a shocking number of chemicals, expertly blended to make you smell just like a fresh-picked flower).
A little older, a lot wiser—who cares about numbers anyway?! Keep them guessing your age with a smart skincare routine that highlights the three Rs of looking great at any age.
