13 Best Self Tanners for a Healthy Glow

jhon pablo

Spending lots of time indoors gives you plenty of opportunities to indulge in self-care — but it can also leave you slightly paler than you’d like to be. If you’re not venturing outside too much and are longing for your usual summery faux glow, the answer lies in a quality self tanner.

While self tanner has a reputation for being tricky to apply — it can end up developing unevenly, in streaks or outrageously orange — certain products make it easier than others.

These days, sunless tanners come in tons of formulas: spray mist, mousse, serum, lotion, towelettes and even double-duty tinted moisturizer. Just choose the one that you’re already most comfortable applying (we love a good airbrush-like mist), give yourself a thorough body scrub to slough off dead skin cells, dry your skin completely and then follow the instructions on your chosen bottle.

A few tips: If you have

Your diet, hormones, and skincare routine could play a role in excess shine. Dermatologists share the top reasons for oily skin, plus what to do about it.

Even though it can feel like you’re plagued to battle adult acne forever, know this: “Having oily skin is not necessarily a bad thing,” explains Tyler Hollmig, M.D., director of Dermatologic Surgery and Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at Ascension Texas. It protects your skin barrier which locks moisture in, and therefore “can help keep you looking younger as you age.”

That said, excessively oil skin has a laundry list of potential causes—some of which can signal that something is off in your body. More likely than not, a combination

Meet The Black Men Making Mental Health Less Taboo

jhon pablo

Mental health has been a perpetual taboo in the Black community, despite the fact that Black adults are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems. 

Millennials, however, are leading the charge to normalize these conversations, in part due to the heightened trauma resulting from racially motivated murders. Pervis Taylor, mental health advocate, author of Surthrival Mode and life coach, says this is a stark contrast to previous generations’ feelings about mental health. 

“I definitely think mental health is more normalized within our community because many of us who are 40 or younger are more in the space of not continuing to suppress,” Taylor says.

Mercy Health doctor: Simple solutions to tackle ‘maskne’ | Lorain County

jhon pablo

As the state of Ohio continues to tackle the novel coronavirus pandemic with mask wearing a part of the daily lives of Ohioans, some residents are dealing with the unexpected side effects of “maskne.”

A play on words with the skin irritation many people are experiencing due to wearing masks on a daily basis, Dr. Valerie Nemeth, of Mercy Health Vermilion Primary Care, says there are a number of steps people can take to prevent and mitigate the soreness to protect the health of their skin.

The problem is arising from irritation with the mask fabric rubbing against the skin all day in addition to the hot, humid environment making the skin more prone to breakouts, including those who have never experienced acne before.

Wearing a clean mask every day can make a world of difference as far as prevention, Nemeth said.

She encouraged people to make sure to wash

Laura Dern’s Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

jhon pablo

Laura Dern has been acting since the ripe age of 15, when she landed her first acting gig in Mask. Since then, she’s gone on to star in a number of hits, including Jurassic Park, Wild, and Big Little Lies. But refreshingly, and almost shockingly, Laura has somehow managed to stay humble—even after growing up with two successful actor parents (Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, ICYMI).

She told Into The Gloss that they showed her that being an actor was a “practical craft” and that “you worked hard and you went to work like other people went to work.” Another practical piece of advice she learned from her mom: “when we buy something, we are investing in that company and we should want it to succeed and live up to our values,” she told Shape.

Laura practices this rule in all aspects of her life,

The First Known Case Of A Skin-Less Shark

jhon pablo

As if 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, what if we told you that a shark with no skin-related structured (so no epidermis, stratum laxum, dermal denticles, or teeth) was discovered?

Seems like something straight out of a science fiction movie. Except, it’s not.

Galeus melastomus, also known as the blackmouth catshark, is a small elasmobranch distributed in the eastern Atlantic from Norway to Senegal on the outer continental shelves and upper slopes. Here, they mainly feed on invertebrates, cephalopods, small pelagic bony fish, and other small elasmobranchs. This shark is caught in fisheries within their range and have very low or no commercial value. Back in July 2019, one individual stood out and became a scientific megastar. The specimen was caught by trawl in central‐western Mediterranean waters in

Far too often, when Sarah Perren went to a Philadelphia hospital for her regular diabetes care, her doctor gave her dietary recommendations that she never could have afforded. Just stepping into the office made the 59-year-old Black woman feel tense and self-conscious; she sensed that the doctor thought she was just lazy for not following his diet.

One time, another doctor at the clinic literally jumped back when she took off Perren’s socks and saw her dry skin—a frequent consequence of diabetes. The doctor announced that she didn’t want any skin flakes to get onto her clothes.

“I felt it was racial,” the West Philadelphia resident recalled. “You just have a feeling the way they talk to you. That’s when I told myself my health is more important somewhere else.”

She has since established care with another hospital, but still feels the toll of what experts
