As you're all well aware, it's swimsuit season. We're half happy not to have to wear much clothing when it's about 90 degrees out, but also half annoyed at ourselves for how self-conscious we sometimes get about the jiggly bits. We've all got them, but sometimes the little flaws feel more daunting than they reasonably should. Stretch marks, for example. Infuriating, right? Whether you've got one or 50, they're no fun and it's a little hard to be totally confident in a tiny bikini when your skin appears to be ripping at the seams. If you can get past them, more power to you; we're jealous. If stretch marks cause you to spend a little too much time coming up with swimsuit strategies to cover them up, we've got an idea: self-tanner.

Seems like you need a PhD in SPF these days to understand what's on the label of most sunscreens. And believe you me, you want to make sure you have the right sunscreen slathered on your body before you hit the beach! Non-melanoma skin cancer is now the most common type of cancer in America. More than 3.5 million cases were reported in 2006... and that's just the reported cases. Many patients are treated in the doctor's office and a good number of those aren't included in the count. That's why the Archives of Dermatology recently called non-melanoma skin cancer an "under-recognized epidemic" in the U.S.
Of course, the number one way to prevent skin cancer is to stay out of the sun (especially during peak sun hours) or cover yourself from head to toe even in 90 degree weather! But how many people can do that? Enter sunscreen. The right kind not only blocks dangerous rays, but also helps block the anti-aging effects of the sun (think fewerRead More »from What Do SPF Numbers Mean, Anyway? (Not What You Think!)

Megan Fox -- just 24 and once considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, showed up at the L.A. premiere of her new film, Jonah Hex, sporting a very strange and youthful look to her face. Three years ago, Megan was stunning, but already appeared to be adding fillers to her naturally pretty bowed lips. The top lip bow was disappearing but at least her face looked fresh and natural.Read More »from Don't Be A Victim Of Bad Botox Like Megan Fox And Kate Gosselin!
Fast forward to June 17, 2010 and Megan's eyebrows are arched unnaturally, her forehead and upper cheeks are so smooth -- they looked carved in stone. She doesn't even look like she can smile anymore -- she's very Heidi Montag-esque.
Beverly Hillls plastic surgeon told us at HollywoodLife.com that yes, she's had Botox and, "a lot of it... Around her eyes and near her eyebrows... it's maing her look waxy. She has that frozen look from Botox."
It doesn't help that plastic surgeons also believe she engorged her lips further with fillers and that her cheeks have been "enhanced maybe

I'm not particularly acne-prone, but in the past few weeks, I've had two icky blackheads pop up in the same spot. Three. Times. In. The. Same. Exact. Place. Ugh! Just when I think the coast is clear, a couple days later they're back to taking residence on my face again (these pesky things should seriously start paying rent). So, what gives?!Read More »from Answers to the Annoying "Why Does My Blemish Keeping Coming Back?" Skincare Riddle
I enlisted the help of skin guru NYC dermatologist Dr. Susan Binder, who helped point out some sneaky reasons as to why these buggers keeping coming back. Read on to see if there's a solution for your facial war zone area:
Acne around the hairline? It could be from overusing hair products and not cleaning it away thoroughly enough at the end of the day.
Pimples on the chin? It might be the result of touching the area with your hand or resting your chin on a phone (I plead guilty two-fold on this one! I'm a total hold-up-the-phone-with-my-chin-while-typing-an-e-mail type of girl.)
A blemish only on one side of the face? That one could even be from
Waxing 101: Tips and Tricks for BeginnersBy Alexandra Gekas
In the last several years, waxing has become a common (and popular) service offered at salons and spas. Whether it's the eyebrow, upper lip, armpit or, well, someplace more intimate, many people choose waxing for longer-lasting hair removal. But to those who've never done it (or who've done it once and had a bad experience), it can seem a bit daunting. If you're thinking about giving waxing a try, we've spoken to the experts and gotten the inside scoop on everything from preparation and pain to what kind of results to expect, so you can be well prepared when it comes time to take it all off-your hair, that is.

Waxing is a great alternative to shaving if you have hair you're uncomfortable with, says Cornelia Zicu, chief creative officer at the Elizabeth Arden: Red Door Spas.

1. DNA Life Changer
Healthy habits can actually repair your DNA, say researchers Dean Ornish, MD, and Elizabeth Blackburn, MD. Their study subjects ate vegetarian whole foods with 10 percent of calories from fat, walked 30 minutes six days a week, used stress-reducing techniques, and went to a weekly support group. The results? Besides a decrease in LDL cholesterol and stress levels, they showed a 29 percent rise in telomerase. This enzyme repairs and lengthens telomeres, tiny protein complexes on the ends of chromosomes that are vital for immunity and longevity. Short telomeres and low levels of telomerase signal an increased risk of heart disease and cancer, plus a poor prognosis if you do get ill.
Editor's Note -- October 5, 2009: Elizabeth H. Blackburn (mentioned below), Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak have just won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their breakthrough work on telomerase,

20s: Strengthen Thin Skin
Even if you don't have any wrinkles yet, you may have started to see under-eye shadows. "Dark circles are usually hereditary and are often a sign of leaky blood vessels or thinning skin," says dermatologist Patricia Wexler. Any product that boosts collagen (look for those with peptides or vitamin C) will thicken skin, making blood vessels less visible. Try peptide-packed Aveda Green Science Firming Eye Creme.
30s: Prevent Puffiness
Swollen eyes at this age are usually the result of fluid retention. "Sleep disturbances, diets high in salt, and allergies can all contribute to water retention," notes dermatologist David Bank.
