What you need now if you want to look younger and more refreshed before holiday parties.
Peter Pan taught us that you never have to grow up - and these treatments are the Neverland of the beauty world.
What you didn't know can make you look old before your time.
Mega-sized bottles of sunblock are great for the under-12 set, but when you want to relax in the sun and look good doing it, you have to step up your game. Here are our top-four picks for the best blockers around.
Most Inside SCV staff members are somewhere in our 30s. Like most SCVians, we try to take good care of our bodies and our appearance - so you can imagine the discussions that have evolved over the years as the calendar pages fly past at top speed, our wrinkles deepen and our skin starts to lose that youthful bounce.
"Trick or treat!" is a phrase we're bound to hear uttered by cutely-costumed children at least a few million times before the month is over. Personally, we're in no mood for tricks, but treats sound plenty good - as long as there's no waistline expansion to go along with it.
What you wanted to know - but were too embarrassed to ask!

Say "goodbye" to zits with smart at-home and professional skin care.
Not too long ago, women and men treated their penchant for Botox as a secret to be guarded like their life was on the line. But the days of "Did she or didn't she?" are coming to a close as more and more Americans consider injectables to be on par with other self-care treatments like laser resurfacing or even a "really good facial." The cat's out of the bag, as the common phrase goes, and so too are syringes filled with wrinkle reducers, line fillers and lip plumpers. And, because of their no-down-time status, pre-holiday-party season is the time to witness firsthand the science of beauty. Whether you want to give injectables a try or are hoping for something a little more permanent, 'tis the season!
We just want to look significantly younger, thinner and prettier before the first holiday party of the season. Is that too much to ask? Thankfully, according to local experts, the answer is "not at all." Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like Christmas is coming early this year - and in the form of lasers, razors, syringes, makeup and more.
Wrinkle prevention and, if not "elimination" than at least "minimalization," is top of mind for both women and men alike. Looking less than our age has proven to not only be a boost to our confidence but also to our bottom line; many people have undergone dramatic treatments in order to remain competitive in the workplace.
Whether you want a sun-kissed visage for a day, a week or longer, we've compiled the best tanning options around.
One of the more common telltale signs of aging is thinning of the lips. The natural volume loss that occurs in most people's lips can, by itself, make you appear five to 10 years older. Add to this the small vertical lines above and/or below the lips, known as "smoker's lines," and more years accumulate on your face.
Go on, you're amongst friends.
You can tell us. And we won't tell a soul.
You want to look younger. Fresher. Smoother.
We get it. We do, too.
My mom's a wise woman. A mother to four, she knows the ins and outs of pregnancy, nursing and childrearing. Which is why I worried, just a little, when she uttered this: "You are never going to look the same after you have this baby. You know that, right?"
Autumn is the time to repair the damage caused to your skin during Summer. You should change your facial cleanser to one with exfoliants to remove dead skin cells. Before you apply your makeup, use a rich moisturizer and apply a vitamin C serum. Vitamin C helps repair sun-damaged skin and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and freckles.
Oh, cruel irony. What the sun giveth, the sun taketh away. The "youthful sunkissed glow" quickly evolves into darkspots, crowsfeet and an appointment with a dermatologist to make sure that mole isn't something nefarious. Bronzed limbs become ground zero for dry, flakey, ashy skin. Naturally-highlighted hair looks gorgeous - until it starts splitting and breaking.
Two natural births and one dream of a tummy tuck later (Oh, if it wasn't only a dream!), I find myself stuck between a bikini and a hard place (aka: the "Grandma" suit I donned last season). Determined not to again encase my still-youngish body in yards of swim-skirt fabric and a heavy cloak of flabby-butt-induced shame, I turned to local businesses to find my way back to "bikini beautiful" (though I'm cool with settling for "tankini tight").
