Wishing I could unsee the unseen acne I’ve now seen!

Wishing I could unsee the unseen acne I’ve now seen!

There’s few things more annoying than a major breakout just before a big event. But what if you could see that breakout weeks or even months in advance? Then, you might be about to take preventive steps to ward it off before it occurs! A few weeks ago, I was excited to fly out to Manhattan Beach, California for Neutrogena’s Skin Health Summit.

Breakouts that have yet to occur – but are already under the surface, creating...

Amy Adams achieved that last night, celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a simple, sophisticated look. “She wore a stunning sapphire blue Gucci gown, modern and clean.
