We all know what ingrowns look like – “unsightly” red bumps that many of us get after we wax, shave, sugar, thread, or pluck our bikini-area. As if wearing a bikini isn’t stressful enough! What many people don’t know is why they actually happen. They happen anytime hair grows back into the skin instead of up and out to the surface, and according to Dr. Neal Schultz, NYC dermatologist, host of DermTV.com, and creator of BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz, they’re more likely to occur if you have curly or wiry hair. He also notes that just like the blemishes that pop up on our faces, picking them will make them way worse! I’ve never actually attempted to pick at them on my own, though there are countless Youtube videos of people doing just that (again, Dr. Schultz warns NEVER to do this), but when I wax, the lady who does it removes them for me (at least some of them…), which does help.

I’ve been obsessed with side braids for years now, especially during the hot summer months when you want to keep your hair off your neck as often as possible. Emma Stone makes the style seem effortless, but the relaxed, “undone” look actually requires a bit more doing than you’d expect so I’m turning to the professionals!
Normally we see summer frizz and think, “No, thank you!” We buy all sorts of sprays and serums to keep the dreaded f-word at bay, but what if for once we just let it happen – or to be more exact, made it happen?
Good hair can make a girl’s day, and I have yet to see a celeb scowl with Jen Atkin at her side. Not only is she the hottest hairstylist in the biz, regularly taming the locks of clients like Sophia Vergara, doing hair for national ad campaigns, and working her magic on TV and in music videos for iconic artists like Madonna, Jen is also a social media wizard.
My latest obsession is By Terry’s Radiance Renewing Mask! It’s the best complexion brightening and deep hydrating mask I’ve ever tried – not a bit oily. I’ve given it a regular spot in my beauty routine.
