Claire Harmeyer Mar 03, 2021 @ 12:39 pm Despite what you may have heard, you can’t fix split ends, and shaving your hair won’t make it grow back thicker. In Myth Busters, we debunk common beauty misconceptions and set the record straight. Everyone has some sort of facial hair, whether it’s peach fuzz or chin stubble. I first noticed my mustache when I was 13, and have been tending to it ever since. Plus, I pluck the same single black hair on my chin every month. But have you heard the rumor that facial hair grows thicker as women age? I hate to break it to you, but there is… read more

By Rachel Lapidos March 1, 2021 The skin on your face gets to steal the beauty routine spotlight. Sure, your face, limbs, torso, and phalanges also get some love, but there’s another important part of your dermis that’s worth remembering: your neck. And dermatologists firmly believe in the benefits of adopting a neck skin care routine. “Neck is becoming the new face,” Dr. Mona Gohara, M.D., a Danbury, Connecticut-based dermatologist tells Bustle, noting that people have been paying more attention to it than ever — feeling bad about their necks, as Nora Ephron would put it — thanks to countless hours on Zoom. The pandemic has exacerbated “tech neck,” aka the… read more

Pit care is the new self-care. By:Michelle Rostamian Fact: Most of us are at least somewhat guilty of neglecting the skin on every part of ourselves except our faces. And while in some cases this is understandable (maskne is still alive and well, folks), there’s a little-talked-about area that’s just as deserving of our TLC: our underarms. Sure, armpits aren’t nearly as exciting to talk about as, say, a new acne-busting face mask or a trendy serum, but it remains undisputed that taking care of the underarm area is essential, given the fact that our armpits are prone to bacteria and yeast buildup, which can lead to odor, ingrown hairs,… read more

Why Psoriatic Arthritis Is So Difficult to Diagnose

It’s a relatively common condition, yet few people actually know what it is. This makes it all the more important to learn which symptoms to look for and the treatment options currently available to patients. By Lauren Caruso February 26, 2021 In 2019, psoriatic arthritis made its prime-time debut on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, thrusting the chronic disease into the spotlight. Sure, a reality-TV show plotline may not seem to offer the most accurate take, but the depiction of Kim’s experience, which was marked by joint pain, psoriatic flare-ups, and major fatigue, was spot-on — after her experience had initially been misdiagnosed for an entire episode.… read more

Including how to find the right tattoo artist. By Garrett Munce Feb 27, 2021 Getting a tattoo is a decision that should never be taken lightly. After all, that ink is permanent. You need to think about everything from the placement, the design, the colors, and most importantly, the artist before you hand over your money and way before the needle touches skin. But for people of color and those with darker skin tones, the tattoo decision making process can be far more complicated. Like many other industries, tattooing has been dominated by white men for decades. “When I started tattooing in the 90s, I might’ve known of maybe five… read more

Plus, the treatment options for signs of aging. By:Hannah Baxter If you’re of a certain age, you might have given some thought to the creeping signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. There’s a reason why medical professionals performed 7.7 million Botulinum Toxin Type A (like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) procedures in 2019. Minimizing the appearance of fine lines in various areas of the face is a big business, and it’s only getting bigger (there’s been an 878 percent increase in these types of injectables from 2000 to 2019), which is why we weren’t surprised to learn that dermatologists are seeing more and more patients that are concerned about… read more
