Get a whiff of this scientific breakthrough. According to a new study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, some of the same scent receptors that give your nose its sense of smell can be found in your skin. Even more intriguing, these same receptors appear to help repair damaged skin.

Next they tested different scents to see how the cloned cells reacted. It turns out that skin perked up to the smell of Sandalore, synthetic sandalwood oil used in perfumes and aromatherapy.
Do you have a drawer full of skincare products that are collecting cobwebs … a constant reminder of unfulfilled promises? We call this the “product graveyard” and it haunts us all.

When it comes to flirting with filler, the best philosophy is “less is more.” While a little bit of cosmetic enhancement can go a long way to improving not only your appearance but also your confidence, too much can just as easily have the opposite effect.
There’s nothing spookier than waking up to dull, blemished skin following a night of Halloween fun. Whether you’re decked out in costume and makeup for a late-night party or to trick-or-treat with your kids, these tips will keep your face glowing long after the flame from the jack-o-lantern is gone.
