It's not exactly a secret that A-listers' hair isn't 100% natural. Perry told Us Weekly she wanted to pull her extensions out and Kidman has been seen sporting bald patches, a tell-tale sign of someone who uses artificial hair too often. It's a great way to change up a hairstyle quickly for a walk down the red carpet, and many times it's necessary for a particular film role. So why the sudden change?
Giuliana Rancic might have been the one to start this trend. In 2012 the E! host told Allure, "I do have individual hair extensions-Melissa Brown and Tracey Cunningham tag-team my hair," but in

Hormonal Acne As a 10-year-old girl I was warned that down the line I would be joining a club that every female joins at some point, and that every month thereafter I would have to suffer the cramps, chocolate cravings, and general feelings of bitchiness that come along with membership. As if those perks weren't great enough on their own, I also get to enjoy the two to three ginormous pimples that accompany Aunt Flo. It doesn't matter how good I am about my diet or keeping my stress levels under control. Hormonal acne still strikes every month.

And it's not just me; I can spot a fellow PMS-er a mile away by the huge zit on her chin. You see, hormonal acne isn't like all other types of acne. It's often along the jawline, chin and neck and is usually cystic with big, red, painful bumps. It's exactly these types of bumps that can't be hidden, no matter how good your concealer is.

Lean muscle mass is more metabolically active than fat tissue, so the more muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn-even when your body is at rest. "Breakfast is oftentimes lacking in protein if you're a 'grab a bagel or muffin and go' type of person," Willow says.

Skip The Ponytail Elastic "First, you want your hair up off your back and off your face," says Ashley. Obviously, the less sweat on your strands, the better.

Not only does alcohol dehydrate your body, but it also dehydrates the skin, causing it to look duller. "Alcohol strips the body of essential vitamins that keep the skin looking vibrant. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it increases urination. Alcohol also decreases your production of the antidiuretic hormone, which the body uses to absorb water.
