Which Frames Fit Your Face?

Closeup portrait of a blonde woman with hands under chin wearing glassesGlasses are no longer simply tools for improving your vision; they are now a fashion statement. Sure, your reading glasses at home may be outdated, but if you need a pair of eyeglasses to go out in public, it is important that you get frames that you feel good wearing. How do you know which ones will look best on you? By finding your face shape.

Find Your Shape

One of the first steps in choosing a pair of glasses is knowing what the shape of your face is. There are four basic face shapes, and each can benefit from a flattering pair of eyeglasses. Take a look in the mirror at your face. If you have long hair, pull it back so you can see the true shape. If you have trouble discerning the shape, use this guide:

Lindsay-Lohan celebs who look old feature

Celebrities Who Look Older Than They Really Are

Lindsay-Lohan Celebs WHo Look OldWe all know Hollywood has a reputation for never aging, and there are plenty of stars who seem to have already had a drink from the Fountain of Youth. Helen Mirren, Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry come easily to mind. But what about those celebrities who look a little worse for the wear? Below are some of the celebs who actually appear older than they really are, provided by River Place Mohs & Dermatologic Surgery Center.

Lindsay Lohan, 27

This is an easy one. Lindsay, who had an early career in childhood, seems to get older and older as her peers get more youthful. Hard partying and plenty of stints in rehab could be to blame here.

Fergie, 38

Fergie has all the makings of a stunner and she’s certainly a beautiful woman. But she hasn’t even hit 40 yet, a fact you wouldn’t know just by looking at her. This songstress does love her plastic surgery though, which could be part of the problem. Either way, she’s starting to look much older than smoldering husband Josh Duhamel.

Jason Segel, 33

Jason Segel is everyone’s favorite funnyman, and it’s no wonder he lands so many leading roles. But many of those parts are with actresses several years older than him. At 33, Jason looks much older than he actually is, which could account for his placement alongside much-older Cameron Diaz in “Bad Teacher.”

Set The Date With Makeup Timestrips

Makeup TimeStrips Know When to Throw Your Makeup AwayRemember my idea for keeping track of when your makeup expires by writing the purchase date on your products with a White-Out pen? Here’s an even smarter idea.

Timestrips are useful little stickers to put on your makeup that track both time and temperature with an indicator that changes color when a product has gone kaput. Stick them on your new foundation bottle, lipstick tube, or compact and they’ll keep you informed of when your makeup has met its germy end.

Timestrips even did a super cool case study with integrating their expiry trackers into Cargo’s existing makeup containers. I hope this is indicative of future advancements – we need some more safety surrounding cosmetics, don’t you think?

6 Products That Should Never be Used for Skin Care

If you’re having any sort of skin troubles, chances are a friend or family member will come to you with some sort of natural wonder cure. There are some home remedies that work wonders for some, but there are plenty of substances no one should put on their face. They can cause dangerous skin reactions, worsen the problem you’re having or decrease skin’s health over time. Here are some regular household products that Delray Beach dermatologist Janet Allenby says you should never use for skin care.

​lemon juice and citrusLemon Juice and Citrus

Put this in your tea, not on your skin. Citrus is highly acidic, very drying, and can cause contact dermatitis, a skin condition that can result in dryness, itching, loss of moisture, and itchy rashes. Not to mention that going out in the sun after having citrus on your skin can cause blistering.
