How it works is basic color theory: picking the right colors based on your hair color, eye color, and natural skin undertones will accentuate your features and make you glow.

GettyGettyFine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are all a normal part of life. But for those of us who want to avoid the signs of aging for as long as possible, there are options.

However, if you fall in the camp of wanting your skin to look and feel its best but you feel like you need more than topical products and you’re still too weary of going under the knife, there are plenty of noninvasive options to check out, like Ultherapy.…

Many brands are trying to do their part to fix that, which is why more are looking into upcycled ingredients, refillable-packaging solutions, and even special recycling programs for their consumer’s empties. But one of the most glaring sources of waste in the industry goes unmentioned — and it has to do with the cutesy sample and mini-sized products you buy before a trip or receive as gifts with a purchase or in holiday sets.

All of this…

Getty | Tanja IvanovaGetty | Tanja IvanovaWe know that how beauty products are packaged matters greatly from a sustainability perspective with recycling but the jars, tubes, and bottles that they’re housed in are also important for protecting the integrity of the ingredients and making sure they’re most efficacious. Luckily for us consumers, product manufacturers handle all of those logistics, but knowing what to look for can also help you make more informed decisions. For example, if you’ve ever taken inventory of the vitamin C serums in your vanity, you may notice they all have something in common: an opaque bottle.…
