Scientists at Harvard and M.I.T. have developed something they are calling a “second skin,” which they expect will be used in a variety of ways—to lock in sunscreen, to treat eczema and other skin conditions, and to give users the poreless, unlined skin of a young Ansel Elgort.
You might think that staying hydrated can keep the inevitable haggardness at bay, but experts warn that regularly swigging from water bottles could prematurely age you.
I never really thought about it before, but I guess "sad" and "angry" are emotions stereotypically applied to the elderly. Get off my lawn and all that. Dropping it into the ocean at the end. No, you can't have equal rights because the '50s. Et al. But a new study suggests that older people don't actually exhibit…
Of all the insane things that people have done to appear youthful throughout time — injecting fillers into your face, eating tapeworms, bathing in virgins' blood (and those are just the preferred procedures of Kenny Rogers. Haha! Relevant!) — using tape to smooth out your wrinkles actually ranks pretty low on the…
Everyone knows that their fingers get all wrinkled after spending too much time in the tub or swimming, but apparently nobody was really certain as to why—until now. According to a new study, it has to do with evolution and the way our ancestors lived.
Uh-oh: The FDA has just made public a letter it sent to more than 350 medical practices last month, informing them that they may have received some bum Botox.
As anyone who's spent any time peering into the mirror inspecting every inch of their face can tell you, it's easy to obsess for hours about the size of your pores, every tiny pock or mark, and, of course, wrinkles. Well, naturally there's now an iPhone app to assist you with the poring over of your pores. It's called…
A while back we received a product that advertised itself as "a new treatment in beauty that's perfect for tonight's big date." That product was Biobliss, a patch that, when applied to your face for an hour, supposedly "reduces wrinkles up to 50%." Because of our commitment to science, we had to test it.
Soon instead of just rubbing yourself down with various creams in a futile attempt to get rid of wrinkles, you can start popping lots of pills. Unilever is releasing a capsule that combats wrinkling in deep layers of skin, and scientific testing shows that the drug may reduce the appearance of lines ever so slightly!
Remember the photos Megan Fox published last week, "proving" that she does not use Botox? Well! Some doctors saw those images. "Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment," says plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. "Those lines on her forehead are totally fake. …Muscles in the…
We've already read that Botox may dull people's emotions. Now it turns out the popular face-freezer may hamper users' ability to judge how others are feeling.
At last! We finally have a bra designed to keep our breasts "in place" while we sleep. It's hard to believe that before today, women were forced to use all sorts of levers and pulleys to achieve this goal, but now there's a new bra that will finally spare us from the horrors of "cleavage wrinkles."
Wearing this once a day for five minutes is supposed to give you the prominent, pointy (more Anglo-Saxon?) nose of your dreams. You may also find that you can't smell anything. And that your nose hurts.
There's a new anti-aging cream on the market which may work better than all the others. By which we mean: slightly better than nothing at all.
Nothing is permanent. And everything good goes away eventually. Right? That's life. That's the deal.
There's a lot of scary shit in this month's Marie Claire, like an enormous blood-red flower blossoming from a pair of panties, or a dress that looks like sweetbreads. But most terrifying of all is the magazine's new discovery: aging.
"President Obama didn't look his age when he took office in January," writes Jane Ridley for the NY Daily News. "Ten months later, nobody would mistake him for a kid." We have a Commander in Chief who ages! The indecency!
This weekend, I stayed with a friend - who, despite the mere three-month gap between our birthdays, is unquestionably a grownup. She has a mortgage, and people who answer to her. Most of all, she has anti-aging products.
A new wrinkle and scar injection called Vavelta promises to smooth out fine lines and scarring with a radical new ingredient: Cells from babies' foreskins, which are injected in the lower layers of the epidermis, eventually revealing younger-looking skin after a few months. The foreskins are donated by mothers of…
