The Best Mid-Size Gold Hoop Earrings To Buy Now

Image
Hoops earrings go way back. And we aren’t referring to your grandmothers’ (but we bet those are amazing, too). We're talking about centuries back—to around 2600 B.C. when they were the earring of choice for Sumerian women. One thing’s for sure, they have certainly evolved since then. We have seen all sizes fall in and out of trend over the decades, from the larger-thicker versions in the '70s and '80s to the really oversized and skinny designs in the '90s and early 2000s.
Currently, we can’t get the mid-size gold versions off our mind. If you want to make a statement with your hoops, we urge you to turn to twisted or textured versions. If your style is more classic and minimal, try a shiny true-round pair. Whatever look you are going for, one thing is certain: You don’t want to put anything else in your ears.  1. 14K GOLD HOOPS Pair these with a chunky-knit turtleneck.  2. 14K GOLD HOOP EARRINGS Wear these with a low bun for maximum impact. 3. TRUE-ROUND HOOP EARRINGS…

How Facial Yoga Can Make You Look 3 Years Younger

Image
You know that exercise can help keep your body looking healthy and youthful as you age. Now, dermatologists say that a facial exercise regimen can have similar benefits above the neck: Women who followed a 30-minute “facial yoga” routine several times a week appeared nearly three years younger after 20 weeks, according to a research letter published in JAMA Dermatology.

Interest in so-called facial yoga has grown in recent years, largely because of claims that it can “rejuvenate the aging face, presumably by inducing underlying muscle growth,” the authors of the new paper wrote. Until now, however, there have been no published clinical trials to assess whether these types of exercises really can improve appearance of the skin and facial features.

So dermatologists and researchers from Northwestern University teamed up with Gary Sikorski, the creator of Happy Face Yoga, to test his technique out on a small group of middle-aged women who wanted to look younger. The women were between 4…

If this was a case for finger pointing, we’d all be directing blame at ourselves for neglecting our most tried-and-true piece of clothing. But frankly, the chatter of conflicting methods creates fuss and ambiguity. To hand wash or toss in the machine? Each wear, weekly, or rarely?
