The Beauty Edit: Neck Creams

Nora Ephron was right: I feel bad about my neck. As I move through my forties, the creases have turned into chasms. The skin sags like a pair of sweatpants with aging elastic. It’s not great. But it’s just a natural part of getting older. Over the past year, it feels like I’ve tried every […]

Beauty Review: Bondi Boost

As I age, I notice many changes in my body. Most are fine. Some are frustrating. Like many women, I lost a lot of hair in my postpartum phase. Being anemic for more than a year after, it didn’t grow back in to its former glory. So I’ve tried any number of shampoos, pills and […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

Ask the Edit: Do We Need Serum?

From clickbait-stories about pre-teens loving Sephora’s wares to fashion mags advocating for a 13-step nighttime routine at 30, skincare seems to be all we talk about.  Without skincare and makeup tutorials, TikTok would just be boring recipes and people complaining about customer service.  But what if you don’t understand the obsession?  What if you just want […]

The Counter: How I Handle Adult Acne

In the past few months, several of my friends and readers have reached out to ask for advice on handling adult acne.  Even women who had never had acne, suddenly find themselves dealing with the spotted scourge after-35.  And since the mental health impacts of having acne are very real, I thought, that as a […]

Makeup Made Easier with Merit

At 41, I struggle with looking in the mirror and not seeing “myself,” the self I was at 25, and 30, and 35, and even 39.  But when the aging arrives (with an assist from the sleepless nights of parenthood), it can hit hard.  So, after three years of only wearing makeup sporadically, I started […]

The Counter: The Post-Product Era

When I was in my 20s, I bought every trendy nail polish, eye color, and lip gloss.  Sure, I could only wear them on the weekends, but why not wear emerald green liner?  In my 30s, I became enamored with skincare and took every “must-have” product for a spin.  But in my 40s, my skin […]
