• Say what you will, but I've always rooted for Team Jen. My love for Jennifer Aniston started during her days as the annoying but oh-so-loveable Rachel Green, and her recent impression of Chelsea Handler on "After Lately" only solidified my girl crush. She's funny, she's hot, and she's only getting better with age.

    The star is 43 years old. For-ty-three. So of course, I want to know how the heck she keeps her skin looking more youthful and flawless than my supposedly-at-peak-20-something complexion. That's why I was all ears when the intrepid beauty reporter -- aka Conan O'Brien -- found out.

    On his late-night TV show, Conan asked the star how she keeps her skin so flawless. Her response: "I'm obsessed with laser porn."

    Come again, Jen?

    Aniston said she uses laser therapy to zap away the age spots from her Cali-bred complexion. She also revealed that she loves chemical peels. "It's extremely

  • Kate HudsonJon Kopaloff/FilmMagicJon Kopaloff/FilmMagic's skin always looks flawless,which is why we caught up with the new mom and Almay brand ambassador to find out how she maintained her radiant glow during pregnancy and beyond. "When I was pregnant, I found that I did have a lot of hormonal skin issues," Hudson told InStyle.com. "I had to adjust my skincare routine accordingly during those nine months, and again after I had my son Bingham." Find out how she did it below!

    1. Leave Airbrushing for the Pros
    "I think airbrushed, cakey-looking makeup isn't nearly as beautiful as actually seeing someone's skin, so I look for products that even out tone while providing a bit of coverage," said Hudson, who prefers the natural look. "I'm a big fan of being able to see my skin, even if I am wearing makeup, so I go for a product with light coverage, then add a few swipes of concealer wherever I think I need it."

    2. Watch Your Diet
    Hudson noticed that her skin reacted differently depending on what she ate. "It was important to Read More »from Kate Hudson’s 5 Skin-Care Tips for Moms-to-Be
  • christina aguilera self tannerEver gone all morning with lipstick on your teeth, or attended a wedding with orange, self-tanned palms? Or maybe you've accidentally dyed your hair a shade of garbage, or used Nair where you shouldn't have and ended up with two giant blisters on the sides of your upper lip. At one point or another, most of us have experienced an embarrassing beauty blunder. But! We're not alone. Celebrities suffer from the same affliction -- it's just that when they make a mistake, it's immortalized on the Internet forever. I mean, the worst consequence we face after a makeup disaster is a morning spent untagging a million Facebook photos.

    I know these stars are probably mortified by their beauty bloopers, but they make us regular old Josephinas feel better about ourselves because, somewhere along the way, we, too, have been there, done that. So these 5 stars should take comfort in the fact that women everywhere tooootally know how they feel.

From 60s beehives to 80s big hair to the spray-tan abusing 00s, the worst beauty trends of the past 50 years. For all of the plucking and primping ladies (and plenty of men) indulge in, there is definitely a science to looking good. Want to score a mate? All you need to project are "full lips, clear skin, smooth skin, clear eyes, lustrous hair, good muscle tone and body fat distribution," says one distinguished evolutionary psychologist.

    Want to kick butt at work? A recent study shows a little makeup goes a long way in terms of conveying competency on the job. Still, evidence alone doesn't seem to prevent us from testing the parameters of gorgeousity via wacky new ways to style our hair and paint our faces, which seem to deliberately contradict the rules of natural selection. Behold, the worst beauty trends to have emerged over the last half century.

    Nobody is naysaying the wonders of modern medicine-what would we do without a medication like penicillin to treat infections? But, as it turns out, everyday items have secret curing powers, too. Next time you don't want to fork over money to get a common wart removed, consider using duct tape. Already popped two aspirin but can't get rid of the headache? A pencil could do the trick. Below, get medical explanations behind a few bizarre-albeit brilliant-MacGyver-esque home remedies.

    Duct Tape to Remove Warts

    In 2002, a group of doctors compared duct tape's effectiveness with liquid nitrogen in removing warts. After two months of wearing duct tape on a daily basis and using a pumice stone about once a week to exfoliate the dead skin, 85 percent of patients' warts were gone, whereas freezing only removed 60 percent. "The question is whether there is something in the chemical adhesive itself, or if the occlusion (suffocation) causes the destruction

    Aging may be inevitable but there are some things you can do to help slow down the clock a bit (at least when it comes to your skin!). Here are the most common types of wrinkles and how to treat them (and even prevent them in some cases).

    What are the most common types of wrinkles?
    According to a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science (2006), researchers at the University Hospital of Liege, Belgium determined that there are four distinctly different types of wrinkles that you'll (eventually) have to face.


    1. Atrophic Crinkling Rhytids - fine lines on the face that are almost parallel to each other.
    Where they occur: They show up on different areas of the face and body but tend to disappear when skin is stretched transversally (this just means they shift when your body posture changes). These wrinkles are associated with loss of elasticity.
    What you can do: Since these wrinkles are due to the loss of collagen, you

    It may sound odd to wash your face with oil since oil is usually what you are trying to remove from your skin. However, oil can be an effective way to remove makeup. Olive oil in particular is becoming a more popular skincare ingredient so lets take a look at how olive oil works as a cleanser and the pros and cons of the "oil cleansing" method.

    How does oil cleansing work?
    You may remember from your high school science class that "like dissolves like." In other words, materials will dissolve other materials that have a similar chemical structure. Since makeup is often made of oil and heavy waxes, it makes sense that olive oil can dissolve oily makeup. Cosmetic chemists use the "like dissolves like" principle to formulate oil-based cleansers and makeup removers. Liquid makeup removers are usually pure oil, while creams (like cold creams) are oils mixed with water, emulsifiers and thickeners. Standard facial cleansers don't always work well on makeup

    As a beauty writer, my apartment is littered with all kinds of products, from the incredibly useful to the slightly ridiculous to the 'is-this-really-even-necessary?!'... One of the items that can easily be classified under the former and the latter categories is hydrating mist/water sprays. (My ex-boyfriend couldn't understand why I wouldn't just pour a gallon of Poland Spring into an old Windex bottle. Le sigh. Clearly boys just don't understand these types of things.)

    Most people use 'water-in-a-can' sprays to cool off irritated, overheated skin during the sweltering summer, but I've actually found a few other great year-round uses:

    1) They're great for loosening up tight skin. After washing my face, my skin feels super tense and incredibly dry, so I liberally spritz on one of my hydrating mists as a pre-moisturizer to soothe and prep my skin to better absorb my serum.
