Here's a sobering fact: basal cell carcinoma is the number-one type of cancer in the United States right now. With summer in full swing, it's more important than ever to have sun safety top of mind. We've got you covered when it comes to all things sun and skin here at Byrdie HQ, whether you're curious about the best SPF products on the market or what it's really like to get a skin check.
It's 2018. We've made huge strides-leaps and bounds, even-in technology, science, and data, so we can expect that to reflect in our beauty and wellness products, right? Not always. Toxic, overpriced items with misleading labels are still placed on shelves and into the hands of un- or misinformed consumers, and considering these products are going on (or inside) our bodies, we can't really afford to take risks.
In the list of TV and film characters we look to for beauty inspo, Carrie BradshawВ is up there. Many a love letter has been penned to herВ style sensibilities (c/o SATC stylist Patricia Field), but we'd argue that Bradshaw'sВ hair was just as covetable, if not more so.

You know that feeling you get when someone says they've never heard of your favorite band or they're just "not into" your all-time most beloved book? It feels like a personal insult, a slight toward artistry, an injustice . Don't even get me started on the time someone told me they didn't think Leonardo DiCaprio was "that talented.
Imaxtree Don't get me wrong-I love a great pixie cut. In fact, Michelle Williams's 2011 chop still gives me goosebumps (that cut and that blonde- everything ). ButВ in order to pull off a transformation of that caliber, one needs a certain type of confidence I will freely admit I lack. So though I frequently worship the likes of Cara and Katy from afar, I have always known that a drastic chop wasn't in my future.
Lush There are a lot of things I enjoy doing. Sleep, however, is not one of them. I know, I know, who am I?! Of course I enjoy sleep when I actually can sleep. I adore it, love it even. That feeling when you wake up from a sleep so deep not even a car alarm could wake you-but my problem is those kinds of nights just never, ever happen.
