10 Best Body Butters to Help Your Skin Survive Winter

Bad news: we haven’t even reached the halfway point of winter. That means there’s still a whole lot of dry air indoors to contend with. But there is a way to combat the moisture-sucking conditions. It’s called body butter.

Sometimes mistaken for a novelty, body butters are actually a necessary step in any hydration routine. We spend so much time moisturizing our face, we often forget that the rest of our body needs love, too. Usually packed with ingredients like shea butter or oils (argan, jojoba, avocado to name a few), buttering up can help keep parched skin at bay, from our elbows to our feet. And thanks to their whipped texture, they’re a lot more fun to apply than traditional lotions.

All the February 2021 Magazine Covers We Loved and Hated

There were lots of unexpected cover stars for February 2021. Not that we’re complaining. After all, it gets pretty boring seeing the same old faces down at newsstands month after month after month.

Kamala Harris covered Vogue. Although we wish the mag had went with the version where the vice president’s sporting a power powder blue suit. Makeup maven Pat McGrath graced Allure. And supermodel Iman popped up on two covers of Harper’s Bazaar U.K.

Eight Great Tips For Natural Skin Care

1. Before retiring to bed always cleanse your face with suitable cleansing milk or homemade cleanser. Draupadi, the divine emerged daughter of King Draupad, queen wife of Pandavas, the composite avatar of Goddess Shyamala (wife of Dharma), Bharati (wife of Vayu), Shachi (wife of Indra), Usha (wife of Ashwins) and Parvati (wife of Shiva) fell like a weak creeper on the way. She looked pale, her body was cold, she took her last breath on the Bheema’s lap and died in peace realizing his unconditional love. The last words she uttered to Bheema before dying were to be born as the elder brother in next life. Bring the focus to your eyes. Your eyes are your best asset. Especially when framed by lush eyelashes. Since it is summer, go for a waterproof mascara. Make sure you get a good eye makeup remover to remove it each night before you sleep. … Read the rest

Inauguration-Inspired Coats Because There’s Still a Lot of Winter Left

We’re already well into winter and most of us picked up a new coat way back in November. Or maybe two or three. But after yesterday’s inauguration ceremony, we’ve got our eyes on a few additional picks.

The selection of coats at any inauguration is pretty stellar. Just think back to the one Michelle Obama originally rocked. This time attendees really brought their A game. Vice President Kamala Harris looked regal in her purple number. Dr. Jill Biden’s teal/turquoise creation had a touch of sparkle. Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman’s yellow Prada was another bright spot. And Harris’ stepdaughter wowed in an embellished checked coat that would make any best of street style roundup.

These Wrap Skirts Have Winter Written All Over Them

Wrap skirts are essentials in our spring and summer wardrobes. Usually made up of breezy or semi-sheer fabrics, they’re often designed to (sometimes barely) cover up the bottom half of your swimsuit. But the silhouette doesn’t have to be restricted to warmer months. We actually found lots of great winter wrap skirts at our preferred online retailers.

What makes these wrap skirts winter-worthy is their length and material. Sweater skirts are still enjoying their time in the trend spotlight and midi and maxi versions are ideal for keeping your legs warm. Cotton, leather, canvas and wool are other seasonally-appropriate options.

Living Legend Pat McGrath Graces Allure’s February 2021 Cover

With the exception of a spectacular Hunter Schafer cover, Allure simply wasn’t the magazine for us last year. It was largely thanks to a series of questionable Billy Porter, Jihyo and Emma Chamberlain covers. But Michelle Lee appears to be getting 2021 off to a fine start by celebrating Pat McGrath with Allure‘s February 2021 cover. Photographed by Richard Burbridge, the legendary British makeup artist serves nothing but face in the cover image naturally wearing makeup from her Pat McGrath Labs line.

The cover took our forum members by surprise. “WELL DESERVED! A living legend,” raved DK92 the moment the cover dropped.

Scalp care is set to rival skin care this year. Just look at all the exfoliators, toners and masks out there. But all these products won’t reach their full potential without a little help from scalp massagers.
