3 skincare products to ditch when the weather heats up


Summer skincare tips

If you're anything like me, you're in the midst of preparing to (finally!) see summer in. Here's a quick tip: While you're trading wardrobes, don't forget to make the switch with your skin care too.

Instead of a rich, heavy body lotion, try a dry oil.

Oil not only hydrates your skin just as well, it'll take your skin one step further and make it glow and glisten. (So great for sunny season, right?) Moisturize from neck to toe with something that's not greasy, like Organix Hydrating Moroccan Argan Dry Body Oil, $6.39, drugstore.com. It absorbs into skin quickly, and it smells incredible.

Instead of a thick face cream, try a moisturizing serum.
Higher temperatures and extreme humidity usually yield excessively sweaty skin, so sate your face with something a little lighter, like Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum, $30, mariobadescu.com. This oil-free gem is one of my absolute favorites; two tiny drops is actually enough to moisturize your entire face.

(See also: Best facial cleansers for every skin type )

Instead of a creamy cleanser, try a gel face wash.
Milky cleansers are usually formulated with humectants that help bind water and moisture into the skin. That's perfect for the colder months, but not so much when it's sweltering out. Lather up with a lightweight foam or a gel, like Clinique Wash-Away Gel Cleanser, $19.50, clinique.com. It's gentle and non-drying but thorough—it doesn't leave a stitch of dirt, oil, or makeup behind.

Oh! I want to put my arms around you, I ache to hold you close,” the normally reserved Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in March of 1933 to her beloved. No, not her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but a brilliant, bourbon-drinking, cigarette-smoking Associated Press reporter named Lorena Hickok, or Hick. Their romance is at the center of Susan Quinn’s engrossing double biography, “Eleanor and Hick: The Love Affair That Shaped a First Lady.” While Quinn is not the first to tell the tale of Eleanor and

That’s why we love this explanation of why she wore a swimsuit, shorts, and heels on the red carpet over the summer. Ariel debuted this look at the Just Jared 4th Annual Summer Bash hosted by Uno in Los Angeles in July. Some fans loved the look and some people hated it, but it definitely got people talking.

    • Pictures of two Egyptian children engaged to be married trigger outrage — once again

      CAIRO – While celebrating his eldest son's lavish wedding, at which a number of famous singers and belly dancers performed, Nasser Hassan decided to "double the joy," he later recalled. He announced that his son Omar would marry his cousin Gharam. At the wedding, held in a province about 75 miles north of Cairo, the guests didn’t find it strange. Some would later tell Egypt’s Al Watan newspaper that there was “nothing inappropriate,” adding that it was only “an engagement, not a marriage". Omar is 12 years old. His fiancee, Gharam, is 11. Egyptian laws prohibit official registration for marriages for anyone under the age of 18. But the practice remains prevalent. According to UNICEF, 17 percent
