3-Minute Read: Here's How Your Moisturizer Should Actually Feel on Your Skin
Welcome to 3-Minute Read, your midweek rundown of everything we’re talking about at Byrdie HQ. Every Wednesday, we’ll get you up to date on the beauty news you need to know—in just three minutes.
1. How do you know if your moisturizer is really working?
There are actually a few factors to consider, dermatologists tell Allure, from the way it glides onto your skin to standout ingredients to look for.
2. Is your manicure "healthy"?
3. All hail Simone Biles…
An editor at Man Repeller penned an amazing ode specifically to the incredible gymnast’s powerful thighs.
4. DIY your way to a flake-free scalp.
These at-home remedies are dermatologist approved.
5. Do you live in NYC? Are you a fan of Brazilian beauty?
Then we highly recommend heading to Sol de Janeiro’s pop-up shop on the Lower East Side (2 Rivington Street, between Bowery and Christie), today through Friday. This is the amazing brand behind our beloved Bum Bum Cream ($45), the unrivaled cellulite remedy we can’t stop talking about. Head over today or tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. or Friday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to get your fill of native secrets and product samples—and to sample a limited-edition, Bum Bum Cream–inspired ice cream flavor crafted by Morgenstern’s. (Pistachio and caramel? All the yeses.)
