Girls get a ‘normal’ Barbie with acne and fuller hips

Barbie — the ultimate alpha girl with her bleach blonde hair and ridiculously unrealistic small waist and long thin legs — has some new competition: a “normal Barbie” with shorter, fuller legs, wider hips, and darker hair. Girls can also slap on some stickers with flaws like pimples, scars, and cellulite to, I suppose, mimic their own imperfections.

Dollmaker Nickolay Lamm, a Pittsburgh graphic designer, told the Washington Post he created the Lammily doll because he wanted to convey the message that “reality can be beautiful.”

Second graders at the St. Edmund’s Academy in Pittsburgh appeared to be impressed with the realistic-looking features on the doll in the youtube video that has more than one million views since it was posted on Wednesday.

“She looks like my sister,” gushed one student. “She isn’t very thin,” noted another. “I don’t have other dolls like this,” said a third girl. Others said she looks like a real person, a regular girl going to

Zits, Be Gone!

When it comes to getting rid of acne, the first step requires a trip to the fridge. “First, reduce the high glycemic foods (a.k.a. the sugary stuff) from your diet,” the skin pro tells Us. Next, get a retinoid application to use at night—this will prevent pimples and unclog pores. (Fusco recommends Philosophy Miracle Worker Anti-Aging Retinoid Pads.)

As for a quick fix—for the days you get a big zit and have a big meeting—here are the doctor’s orders: “For

Egg Yolk Cures Acne? I Debunk 8 Beauty Myths By Trying ‘Em Myself

Using snacks, condiments and various foods you can find in your pantry in our everyday beauty routines is nothing new; the problem is pre-Internet, we only heard about these fads through friends and neighbors. That meant as a teenager, I spent many sleepovers in my best friend’s bathroom smearing mayo in my hair and sneaking beer out of the fridge to use as conditioner.

In the name of budget, beauty, and science I decided to look up, try out, and debunk a few food-as-beauty myths myself. I even asked my friends about what horror stories they’ve had as a result of using the contents of the fridge on their face — and their answers did not disappoint. 

“I spent my early teens applying every substance known to kitchens on my face. My parents wouldn’t let me use makeup or beauty products but they couldn’t keep me out of the kitchen cupboard. I used EVERYTHING. Eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, honey, mashed everything. The low point was probably molasses on my face. Oh, and the time I got grounded for putting all our milk in my bath.” -Catherine Connors, Her Bad Mother

ZAPNE Acne Treatment System Applies 3 Tier Logic’s Consumer-to-Consumer …

VANCOUVER, Dec. 18, 2014 /CNW/ – 3TL Technologies Corp.  (TSXV: TTM) (the “Company”) announced today that ZAPNE LLC, the US based manufacturer of a new, all natural acne treatment system, retained 3 Tier Logic, the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, to use its Platform³ technologies to generate significant brand awareness, ignite online sales, and drive massive social media engagement.

“According to the American Academy of Dermatology nearly 85% of people experience acne at some point in their lives,” said ZAPNE Chief Executive Officer Ebbie Nakhjavani. “Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation in the media and on the market today about the causes and treatments of acne.

Want clearer skin in the New Year for 2015 and beyond? Consider these simple tips:

Don’t Get All Handsy. It’s hard to realize this, but throughout the day we touch our faces a lot. That wouldn’t really be a problem, except for the fact that we’re touching tons of other surfaces, making our hands a Petri dish for germs and other unwanted bacteria. Did you know that there could be over 300,000 bacteria on the human hand?

So commit to this 2015 skin care creed: Once your moisturizer and makeup are on, make it a point not to break this seal with your hands, unless you’ve consciously washed them.
