No more scar face
When you were younger, maybe you picked one (or more!) pimples, only to be haunted by acne scars. Chick RX has demystified some common facial scar issues and offers advice on how to perfect your complexion for good. Of course, the best way to ensure a scar-free face is prevention. When you get a pimple (or have a scab), just wait it out and don’t pick at it. After all, isn’t it a lot better to be called Rudolph for a day than be scarred for life?

So cute for spring
I’m loving how Frieda Pinto wore her hair at Cannes. At first glance, it’s just a gorgeous updo, but in the back, she’s got little sequined butterflies (or moths?). The little clips are a playful surprise that add to an already flawless updo. This would be a cute look to wear to a graduation or even prom. Are you inspired by Frieda Pinto’s hairdo?

Summer-ready feet
In the past weeks, I’ve shared some bronzers and self-tanners that I’ve been hoarding in preparation for summer… but sandals and pedicures are one of my favorite summer essentials! BellaSugar shares tips on how to get your feet sandal-ready for the season without a budget-breaking salon pedicure. One tip? Slather your feet with oil to fill in cracks and diffuse the appearance of calluses in a pinch. These tips will keep your toes in tip-top shape throughout the season!
