New And Improved! The Top 15 Celebrity Plastic Surgeries Gone Right

Celebrity plastic surgeries can go horribly wrong, but what about those that actually ended up good? After all, it’s easy to pick on plastic surgeries that went bad, but not enough attention has been focused on procedures that either maintained or improved a celebrity’s looks.

Experts Reveal Why the ‘Ribbon Zone’ Should Be the Focus of All Your Skincare

Slathering on layers of the best anti-aging products day and night is considered one of the best – and only – non surgical options as far as maintaining a youthful appearance is concerned.

But skincare experts are now claiming that all that effort may well be in vain if you aren’t focusing your products on the correct area of the face – the ‘ribbon zone’.

The so-called zone, which was first highlighted by Korean skincare brand IOPE, is the area comprised of under the eyes, both cheeks up to the front of your ears, the nose and around the mouth, and is – experts say – the part of the face that is most susceptible to visible signs of aging.

Madonna Spills Her Thoughts on Aging and Her Skincare Line MDNA SKIN

If you didn’t already know—Madonna has a skincare line. It’s called MDNA SKIN (naturally) and her newest product is called The Reinvention Cream (because of course). The creams, serums, and toners in the line are all designed around a blend of four healing thermal waters found in Montecatini, Italy.

“This isn’t just a vanity product, this is something I have been working on for five years,” Madonna exclusively told BAZAAR.com. “It’s important to me that the ingredients not only pure, but that they work. I stand by all of them, and I use all of them.”

Study: Skin Cancer Survivors Less Likely to Die of Melanoma

Those who have survived skin cancer don’t want to get it again, which likely makes them more vigilant about the state of their flesh. And a new study shows that vigilance can be life-saving.

For the study, published in the May issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology , researchers looked at more than 900 cases of melanoma reported through the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. They found that men with a history of nonmelanoma skin cancer were less likely to die of melanoma than those without a history. The research was led by Jiali Han, a professor and chair of epidemiology at the Indiana University Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health in Indianapolis.

The Facial That Came From Outer Space

You may have seen them on Instagram: featureless, eerie white masks glowing brightly in selfies by Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Chrissy Teigen, or even soccer player Paul Pogba.

The strange device dispenses the latest cutting-edge anti-aging regimen: LLLT, or low-level light therapy. The masks are studded with light-emitting diodes that pulse or flash in preprogrammed patterns of red, blue, and infrared light. Devotees swear that they are an electrical fountain of youth.

Hormonal Antiandrogen Therapy for Acne May Help Reduce Antibiotic Use

The use of hormonal antiandrogen acne treatment (HAAT) among women with acne should be encouraged in an effort to curtail the extended duration of systemic antibiotic therapy in this population, according to the results of a 10-year retrospective study conducted at an academic medical center and published in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology.

The investigators sought to examine HAAT prescribing habits among dermatologists and the impact of HAAT on the use of systemic antibiotics in women with acne. Patients who were receiving HAAT (combined oral contraceptives and spironolactone) for acne between January 2005 and October 2015 were evaluated. Data from a group of female patients who had never received HAAT (control arm) were also collected.

8 Ways to Deal With That Frustrating Hand Eczema

Hand eczema is one of those things that might not sound so bad…unless you actually have it. It’s easy for people to dismiss eczema as dry skin that just goes a little overboard, but as anyone with the condition knows, there’s way more to the itchy, inflamed story than that.

Eczema can create incredibly irritated and tender skin pretty much anywhere on your body. Unfortunately, your hands are one of the most likely—and inconvenient—spots for this skin condition to make itself known, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Microneedling to Treat Acne Scars in Patients With Dark Skin Color

Microneedling has been shown to be an effective treatment for both acne scars and the associated hyperpigmentation observed in patients with dark skin color, according to the results of a study conducted in the Department of Dermatology at the Jordan University of Science and Technology in Irbid, Jordan, and published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.

The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the improvement in pigmentation linked to acne scarring in patients with dark skin achieved by the use of microneedling. Secondary objectives included assessment of postacne scarring improvement and the safety of microneedling in pigmented skin.
