5 Products That Put the "Oils are Evil" Debate to Rest!
The Kardashian trio has signed on to endorse a new skincare line launching this spring. Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe claim PerfectSkin provided each of them with great results. All we know about the line, so far, is that it's a three step, "easy-to-use" system for all skin types.
Kim said, "I have literally tried everything out there and nothing even comes close to PerfectSkin." She also added, "it's easier and more effective than anything else I've tried, and they are the only skincare products I use."
Whether Kim is singing the product's praises because it actually works, or because she's legally obligated to-- we won't know until the line officially launches.
Until then, check out these other celebrity-endorsed acne products-- and let us know your favorites.
Proactiv is probably the most well-known of the celeb endorsed acne products on the market-- known for its mantra of "renew, revitalize, and repair." The

How to Buy and Style a Perfect T-Shirt
Layers are the only way to adequately prepare yourself for the 20 degree range in temperature that you may experience throughout any given spring day-- think 55 degrees outside in the sun, 45 degrees in the shade, and 32 degrees indoors (because your office building turned off its heat prematurely). While you can carry your layers (namely blazers, cardigans, and vests) over from winter, we recommend investing in a basic denim skirt for spring.
We especially love this cotton Current/Elliot denim pencil skirt. It is designed with an elastic waist that you can either fold over or keep intact to adjust the length of the skirt. (For an inexpensive alternative, try this interlock pencil skirt by American Apparel). Regardless of the price point you choose, a basic denim skirt is a great anchor piece for layering on top. Come summer, pair this high-waisted skirt with a cropped top to enjoy the belly-baring trend without actually baring any belly.

Learn How to Style a Perfectly Undone Bun
Learning how to make a braid is as much a right of passage for women as successfully applying eyeliner without suffering an eye injury, or wearing tights for the first time that aren't opaque white with a crotch that hits uncomfortably at the knee. The braid is important in every young girl's life, not only for its utility in dance class or at athletic events, but also in giving girls the skills to achieve perfectly woven friendship bracelets.
Because it's been awhile since we initially learned how to braid hair, it's time to bring the traditional look up a notch. Moulay Yacoubi of Pierre Michel Salon teaches us how to make a fishtail braid.
Secure the hair into a low ponytail. Here, Yacoubi combed the hair into a slightly off-center ponytail at the nape of the neck.
Divide the ponytail into two sections-- one on top of the other. The top section should only

10 Foods to Add to Your Diet Now
Anyone who's taken a spin around the latest diet-- Atkins, South Beach, Mediterranean etc.-- has learned that alcohol packs a high calorie punch. But who ever said science was always logical? Recent research suggests that ladies who consume judicious amounts of alcohol were less likely to gain weight and were at an overall lower risk for obesity, when compared to their straight-edge friends.
Reported in the The New York Times via the Archives of Internal Medicine, the study monitored the drinking habits of approximately 19,000 women over a 13 year period. It concluded that the non-drinkers in the study gained a substantial amount more weight than those who imbibed one to two drinks per day.
Sorry frat boys, this study isn't holding up for guys. It seems women tend to substitute drinks for food in a given
When it comes to female grooming routines, there are just some things that men really don't want to hear or know about-- like the details of a painful brazilian wax or eyebrow threading appointment. So for all the ladies out there, take this as a cue of what not to discuss on your next dinner date. And men-- if you plan on scrolling to view the below, don't say we didn't warn you. Here are nine gory beauty habits that no man wants to know about.
1. Applying Cellulite Cream
Anything that has to do with the word "cellulite" is probably a major turn-off for any guy out there. Therefore, asking him to help you slather it on to those hard-to-reach areas the next time you're feeling a bit flabby probably isn't the best idea.

How to Buy and Style the Perfect T-Shirt
Circa 1998, my mom lost her mind over Downy Wrinkle Release insisting it worked magic spells on all our clothes. I meanwhile argued that this freak mist was turning all of my clothes blue. As this demi-fight continued, my dad sprayed some Wrinkle Release on the window for cleaning; turns out he had filled the Wrinkle Release bottle with Windex and just didn't tell anyone. (Ergo, I win.)
However, in a fight in which winning felt like losing, I was left with several faintly blue shirts. To recover from this fashion catastrophe, I dyed my entire collection of t-shirts and washed them for a faded black tie dye look to recover some of my otherwise unsalvageable clothes. If you've ever felt my pain at seeing a fashion mishap occur to your beloved garments, here are five suggestions on ways to turn a mishap into a,

How many times have you left the salon after an amazing blowout or haircut and and spent the rest of the day running your fingers through your newly silky hair? It's the best your hair will feel until your next professional blowout-- because let's face it, it's all downhill from there. Two days later, you'll find a greasy version of yourself pouting in the mirror and sighing, "What happened to my soft texture?"
Well perk up little one! Hair stylist for Pierre Michel Salon, Moulay Yacoubi, tells us how to get a salon-worthy blowout at home to help extend your hair's luxurious texture!

Although corporate culture is becoming increasingly informal, don't let the laid back office environment get the best of you.

To insure yourself against any unnecessary embarrassment--or worse, here are 8 things to keep under wraps at the office.
1. Your office crush- If you're commenting on your colleague's rack or divulging your obsession with the new assistant, you might as well just purchase a one way ticket to court for a sexual harassment lawsuit.

Things don't always play out like Jim and Pam's romance on The Office-- so keep your plans of walking down the aisle, dancing to Chris Brown to yourself.
