They say beauty is only skin deep. Only?! Skin is our body’s largest organ, and when it’s clear, hydrated, and radiant, it signals wellness on the inside too. The secrets top M.D.’s share with their favorite people will make you look younger and feel healthier.

2. START ANTI-AGING NOW

“When someone asks, ‘When do I deal with this line between my eyes?’ I’m tempted to say, ‘It was time to deal with it when you first noticed it!’ I can be blunt like that with family, so when my cousins asked, I told them my philosophy: Clean up your room before it gets too dirty. If you begin with small amounts of Botox or filler in your early 30s when lines start forming, the muscle movement that creates wrinkles is restricted sooner, so you likely won’t develop deeper ones. That said, it’s okay if you’ve put it off. Botox, Fraxel, and fillers work into your 40s and beyond; you’ll just need somewhat higher doses since the damage will be greater. Most people have it backward: They’re worried about overdoing it by coming in too frequently. But if they came earlier and more often, I wouldn’t need to do much, so it would cost less and look more natural.” —Paul Jarrod Frank, M.D., director of 5th Avenue Dermatology Surgery and Laser Center and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at Icahn School of Medicine of Mount Sinai in New York City

3.MADE A CHANGE? YOUR SKIN KNOWS

“A friend called me about an itchy rash on her face. When I saw her red, swollen bumps, I realized it was rosacea. So many things can trigger rosacea, even if you’ve never had it before: coffee, milk and cheese, chocolate, red wine, spices. I could have put her on antibiotics, but instead I asked her what had changed in her diet — I knew she was a healthy eater and didn’t drink alcohol but loved coffee. Turns out, she had recently started taking it with cream. She stopped, and the inflammation disappeared within a week. If you’re having a problem, it helps to think about anything that’s new, even if it seems small. Your doctor might make a connection that can get you relief.” —Valerie Goldburt, M.D., cosmetic dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery and assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai Health System in New York City

6 Tips to Having Your Makeup Last All Day

There’s nothing more annoying than looking in the mirror mid-afternoon to see your makeup as all but worn off. Here’s how to keep your cosmetics on lockdown, even in this summer heat!
6 Tips to Having Your Makeup Last All Day #theeverygirl

You’ve worked so hard to create that perfect makeup look and without any welcome at all, heat and humidity swoop into the picture and make that beautiful work of art (or something like that) melt away. The nerve.

The good news is there are steps you can take to make your makeup last all day and we’re here to share them with you. With these failproof tips, there’s no doubt that your makeup will beat the heat.

1. start with a clean canvas

We all know that oil and water don’t mix. The oils on your face aren’t an exception to that rule! An oily face will make makeup melt off quicker than you can imagine.

If you really want your makeup to last, start with a clean face. Remove any excess dirt and oil by washing with a gentle cleanser. After patting your skin dry, apply a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer with SPF (we Everygirls know how to multi-task!). Let it sink in for about three minutes before applying any additional products.

Product Recommendations:
Cleanser: First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
Oily skin moisturizer: Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++
Normal to dry skin moisturizer: Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++

2. prime and perfect

You know how a manicure always looks best when you use a great base coat? The same goes for your makeup! Using a primer will help fill in your pores, blur imperfections, and help your makeup look better and last longer. Using one sounds like a no-brainer to us.

Product Recommendations: 
Primer: Smashbox has an excellent range of face primers. There’s one for red skin, one for dry skin, one for acne prone …
