Found: The Holy Grail of Acne Spot Treatments

ESC: Holy Grail, Acne
When it comes to acne spot treatments, you don't want to mess around.
The right one will shrink a pimple and can even help heal skin faster. The wrong one, however, may do more damage than good: Some treatments can dry out the skin, while others will break you out even more, making the experimental process slightly terrifying.

Naomi Campbell
As the saying goes, “In fashion, one day you’re in, and the next, you’re out.”  But this week’s beauty crush has, is, and will always be in.  We all know how fleeting the career lifespan of a model can be, even if she was one of top earners.  But since being discovered at the age of fifteen, and recently celebrating her 47th birthday, Naomi Campbell continues to dominate the modeling world with a walk as legendary as her name.  Not many can accomplish all this British icon has.  Countless magazine covers and editorials, runway shows, and ad campaigns still keep her the working model she is, but there’s more to Naomi than meets the eye.  Which probably explains why she’s still so sought after.

You know…a handful of low maintenance, natural-inspired looks that allow us to ditch the heat styling tools (too hot for all that!) and navigate summer totally fuss-free. Read on, here’s how…

You're Doing It Wrong: Sleeping in Acne Cream

ESC: Acne Treatment
Scenario: You have a big meeting or red-carpet-worthy event to attend tomorrow. Too bad there's a red pimple about to rear its ugly black head. It happens…to celebs, too. Unlike the stars, however, you probably don't have a celeb dermatologist on call to give that bugger a cortisone shot, which shrinks papules, nodules or cysts in 24 hours.

When asked if they’ve had “sleepovers,” Nicki confirmed. “We have,” she said. “Yup! I go to him ’cause…I don’t know. I just thought him coming to me was too forward.”

Branded: Old School Brands
You know what they say: Everything old is new again.
We've heard it before, but if you take a look at the fashion industry, it's clear. Trendsetters like Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez have to get their street style inspiration from somewhere, after all.

Trending: High Slits
From JLo’s leg-baring gown at last week’s NBC up-fronts to the more casual celebrity street style looks showcasing a plethora of pants with seductive slits, it seems we’ve found a new trend. Get those gams in shape, girls, cause when it comes to this season’s most sultry trend, the leg takes the lead with a stunning debut of high-slit fashion.
I perused the inter-web and gathered up my favorites of this head-turning silhouette so that you, too, can get a leg up on this hot new trend.

Male Rompers’d have to be living under a rock without WiFi to have not seen the tizzy the RompHim has caused. To be clear, it is literally just a romper for men—leaving all of us who love playsuits wondering why the “him” needed to be injected into the name…

Men have already been wearing all-in-ones for quite a long time now. Sean Connery looked so dapper in them in over 50 years ago in 1964’s Goldfinger. Yes, that’s James Bond himself in a romper ya’ll.

Rihanna’s Chopard Collection Dinner only had a handful of celebs in attendance, but the glamour was on high!
Check out the stylish trio of ensembles that took our breath away:

Bardot Top

The Bardot top is destined to become one of summer’s most desirable pieces. To bombshell this babelicious basic, opt for a streamlined crisp white bodysuit version. Embolden the look with a strong splash of color, pairing with a neon pink wrap skirt.  Sprinkle in silver metallics, with a drop earring, stackable bracelets,  strappy heels,  a corresponding cross body bag. Pop the look with a white hot pair of cat-eye sunglasses.
