Makeup magic exists! At the same time, there's only so much beauty products can do.
While some tools will definitely help with imperfections, others can be just pure marketing fluff — even if your favorite celebs are paid to promote them on Instagram. So do the face mists models like Miranda Kerr swear by really hydrate ... or are they just expensive water bottled up in nice spray bottles? Are pore strips, beloved by Chrissy Teigen and Shay Mitchell, worth it ... or are they just for acne-prone teens? Is Jessica Alba being fooled by the promise of light therapy? We asked the experts to weigh on the products and techniques you've probably heard about but are hesitant to try.
Airline travel has become so stressful that, once you arrive at your final destination, it can take two days just to unwind from long security lines and packed flights. In response to our collective travel anxiety and growing interest in beauty tourism, several airlines and airports around the world (and in the U.S.) are expanding their spa facilities to include unique and utterly enticing treatments.

In the beauty world, there is probably nothing more divisive than the use of oils, essential oils especially. Some swear by oils for healthy, moisturized skin; others insist oil-based products cause breakouts. Unfortunately, getting to the truth isn't all that easy — as with most beauty-related concerns, determining if oils work for you is often a matter of trial and error. But, skincare errors? Not so fun.
So we decided to get to the bottom of the oil debate once and for all, and consulted Oille owner and clinical aromatherapist Kirsten King to get the full (and, as it turns out, fascinating) scoop on oils — from the essential variety to carrier oils and everything in between.
Well and Good
A good facial can get your skin glowing. But a great one? It could actually detox your entire body.
Meet the lymphatic drainage facial, where the bliss-inducing circular motions have benefits that go way beyond a relaxing hour on the spa table.
"[Facial] massage is super powerful in terms of positively motivating and creating momentum for lymphatic drainage to help your body detox and renew," says Rachel Lang, co-founder of FaceLove Fitness in New York City.
The treatment's gained famous fans like Nina Agdal and Dakota Johnson, who rave about the glow-inducing results. But what exactly is lymphatic drainage — it can't be as gross as it sounds, right?

You can't manage your team to success. It is only through leadership that your team will follow you, with a strong sense of purpose and commitment, and accomplish together what you set out to do. Why do people volunteer to follow? Because they trust the leader. When people follow, they make themselves vulnerable to the leader. In order to feel comfortable with this vulnerability, they need to feel confident in, respect for and admiration of the leader.

Ocular and systemic measurement and imaging of the macular carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin have been employed extensively as potential biomarkers of AMD risk. In this study, we systematically compare dual wavelength retinal autofluorescence imaging (AFI) of macular pigment with skin resonance Raman spectroscopy (RRS) and serum carotenoid levels in a clinic-based population.

To achieve excellence, most students must be highly motivated. Unfortunately, many students with learning problems, such as learning disabilities and cognitive impairment, appear unmotivated to learn what teachers are teaching. This can become the most difficult and vexing instructional problem that teachers, parents and support personnel face. But it is a mistake to assume that each "unmotivated" student is actually unmotivated.
