The Only Anti-Sunspot Strategy That Works

My friend Sandra recently underwent a series of laser treatments to zap off a smattering of sunspots. It worked and she’s pleased with the results. She’s also terrified of having the spots come back (as you know, laser treatments are no small expense), and correctly assessed that once you’ve had sunspots, you’re forever susceptible to them.

Bring-Less, Look-Better Travel Tips

When I’m traveling, I aim to carry my luggage on board the plane.

My secret? Primp in advance; here's my strategy:

No. They're Not Real

Victoria Secret models, drag queens and Kardashians share a common trait worth copying: They can rock falsies.
