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.
Age—we all have one! And with each year after, say, 21, brings more drooping, more lines, a reduced ability to digest alcohol. The best remedy? A good skincare regimen.
A recent study from the University of Texas shows girls who are charged with crimes serve longer sentences than boys. Even if their offenses are less serious, young females are held in detention centers while they wait for trial an average of five days longer than males.
In case you missed the super-crucial young pop star news, Becky G and Austin Mahone are CONFIRMED to be dating, which is so cute I would near-puke if I didn’t feel so protective of my little sister (in my mind). Austin! Where are those wandering hands going! BRING HER HOME BY CURFEW!
It's Bisexual Visibility Day in the western hemisphere, which should be cause for celebration and pride. Unfortunately, a new report from the Human Rights Campaign says that bi youth in the United States receive more harassment and less support than their lesbian and gay peers.
We've had a bad run of coming out stories lately. It was heartbreaking to see Daniel Pierce come out to his parents and it was even more awful to learn that LGBT youth homelesness was on the rise. That's why it's so awesome to see this video of a teen come out to his mom and hear her shocking confession.
In an interview with Women's Wear Daily promoting Dior's J'adore perfume, Charlize Theron took a moment to discuss why it's so insane that youths in our society are considered so beautiful: they don't know anything!
This weekend was a hot time for blood: several new studies about how you're only as good as the red stuff running through your veins were released.
Science keeps coming up with more reasons as to why we should get up off our asses on a regular basis and actually move around. The latest: exercise not only keeps skin looking young, it may also reverse the aging of skin for people who start working out later in life.
A new study has zeroed in on a chemical which, when elevated in mice, rejuvenated muscles, with dramatic results.
Top Chinese social media site Sina Weibo (a Twitter-Facebook hybrid) recently held a competition to find China's hottest mom, modeled after Coach's Mother's Day Hot Mom campaign, which aimed to promote a more youthful image for Coach in China. Users submitted photos of themselves with their children, but in some…
There's an incredibly Times-y debate happening at the New York Times today — is it possible for men to dress in too youthful a style? If so, then what should be the penalty for men who dress to squire-ly? Lashings? Violent eye-shaming? Will the Fashion Police be dispatched? THERE'S ROOM FOR DEBATE!
Cosmetic procedures requiring injectables and implants have been around for a while. But apparently now the quest for a youthful look is not about filling in wrinkles in the face but making sure the face stays frozen in time like a wooly mammoth.
As we all know, looking old is the absolute worst thing that can happen to a woman (outside of actually being old, the HORROR), and so the (alleged) latest trend is to paint freckles onto your face in hopes that you'll trick everyone into thinking you're a five-year-old. So sexy!
Eternal or even elongated life is an idiotic thing to wish for. You don't want to get old, and then tack on 50 more years of wrinkles and Metamucil. But prolonged youth? Full body youth? More time being young and nubile and beautiful? Absolutely. And the key to that could lie right inside your brain.
Okay. Apparently this is the newest thing in face science. You spit in a jar. Then a fake scientist looks at your spit and is like, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, YES, birch and phoenix feather! This will do nicely!" And they hand you a jar of customized face goop that "matches" your spit, and you go home and goop up your face with…
Great news, wicked queens of America! Your shit just got hella validated. New research out of Stanford University indicates that the brains of older mice can be rejuvenated by commingling their blood supply with the blood of young mice. Well, KAPOW. "Do I think that giving young blood could have an effect on a human?…
Today in bleeeeeeeeuuuuuurrrrrrrrrgh, a new study in the journal Sex Roles suggests that girls as young as six years old are concerned with appearing "sexy." As in, sexually attractive. To other people. With their bodies. In public. At the risk of getting all preachy about "the children," I'd like to invite you all to…
"Grinding: to rotate hips in an erotic manner," explains the always helpful WikiHow in a guide that teaches teenage girls how to "be the best grinder at any party." But I know firsthand that grinding is too complicated to be illustrated in five simple steps.
Courtney Love has an art show. It's under the High Line on a desolate strip of New York City street that made me feel like an awkward, new, and fumbling hooker when I stood there alone in too-high heels waiting for a friend yesterday in broad daylight. Only cabs and moving trucks passing by.
