Fishy business: Live in California? No fish pedicures for you!
…And Everything In Between:
“Faded significantly”: Lancome is being sued for false advertising, given that its “24-hour” foundation doesn’t actually last 24 hours. (And talk about what, for me, is a buried lede: Applying makeup is considered “creative work” and therefore forbidden on the Sabbath.)
Burn: With the summer approaching, it wouldn’t hurt to keep in mind that products that don’t cause an allergic reaction in the winter might suddenly become irritating in the summer because of sun exposure and heightened perspiration.
No gray ladies: The cure for gray hair is coming. No, really. And ten bucks says we’ll soon be seeing a wave of hair-dye ads focusing on the “isn’t it fun to dye your hair?!” angle of hair coloring to make up for lost sales.
Namaste: Melanie Klein lays out how yoga—a haven from judgment, a practice of being in the now—has attracted another component: the myth of “yoga body.” “In the same way there is no such thing as a perfect asana, there’s no such thing as a perfect ass because we’re all individuals.
