Everyone's looking for the formula to a healthy glow, but the secret is in the phrase itself: healthy. Glowing skin is a sign of healthy skin, which starts from the inside. You can slather on all the creams and serums you want, but a key component to radiance comes from the nutrients you consume. Here, a few foods you should eat every day to maintain good health and great skin.Read More »from Eat Your Way to Glowing Skin
Get Your Greens

A: Sweep an electric shade, like turquoise, on just your lower lashline - the hint of color gives your look a subtle twinkle, says Yesenia Almonte, Seventeen's beauty director. Use a flat eyeliner brush to guide the colorful shadow across your bottom lashline, from outer corners in. Do two coats of black mascara on top lashes and one coat on the bottom to finish.

We'll never forget our San Francisco vacation last August-not because of the mountainous streets or stellar views, but because we experienced some of the best hair days of our lives. We loved the near zero humidity since New York City doesn't often see humidity-free days during the summer.

Ever walk into Spencer's or other novelty stores that sell things like candy thongs, edible underwear, and jelly nipple tassels? It appears as if the San Antonio's Sanitarian Services is ruling that an adult novelty store in San Antonio, TX needs a food permit to sell such items-or it'll be shut down.Read More »from Edible Undies? You'll Need a Food Permit for That.
We're as perplexed as store owner Rosemary Benitez who said, "Everything is sold as novelty. Everything in the box says 'novelty item' only... It's not something you sit down and actually eat. It's more for licking and tasting. Edible? No. It's not going to fill you up."

Hold that tanning lotion, especially if you're under 18.

Buy a New Bra
The one thing every woman can do right now to look thinner in her clothes is to buy a new bra, says Krupp. "Eight-five percent of women are walking around in the wrong bra, and it makes their breasts look lower than they should be." The goal is to create as much space as possible between your waist and chest so your torso appears longer and leaner, advises Krupp. The trick is to have an expert measure you instead of automatically buying the same size you always do.
