  • What if the Female Viagra Isnt Medicine At All

    Posted 2018-09-08 16:00:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    Maybe kinky folks who like a little electric stimulation in their sex lives are on to something: a new out of the University of Michigan has found that applying an electric current to your ankle might boost sex drive in women. -   - That may sound like little more than a titillating theory, but researchers had reason to believe it would work: ankle electrodes, applied near the tibular nerve, had been studied in women with overactive bladders — and those women anecdotally reported that the treatments increased their sexual arousal, explains Priyanka Gupta, M.D., an assistant professor of urology at the University of Michigan and one of the study’s co-authors. “That’s what prompted our interest,” she tells InStyle. Focus Features/Courtesy Everett Collection And so far, the theory is continuing to look promising. In the experiment, nine women received a current on their ankle for 30 minutes at a time over 12 sessions. Eight of the nine said their arousal, orgasm, and vaginal lubrication improved. “Our hypothesis is that, by sending a constant vibration to that nerve, we can override the ‘abnormal’ signals,” like a lack of desire, Gupta says. “Basically, we can help normalize the signals going to the pelvic organs.” -   - OK, but let’s back up: why does a nerve in your ankle affect your genitals at all? And how did they come up with the idea to get electricity involved? Gupta says it’s because the tibular nerve runs all the way up to your spine, controlling your bladder and your bowels. And the idea to shock it actually came from acupuncture. ...

  • This Perfume Kept Bugs From Eating Me Alive in Costa Rica

    Posted 2018-09-08 15:30:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    Costa Rica is home to some seriously gorgeous nature. Its jungles are teeming with exotic flora, sun-speckled trails, hidden waterfalls, and mosquitoes — many, many mosquitoes. In Nosara, where I recently spent a week, I’d even venture to say they outnumber the people. While prepping for my stay at Olas Verdes Hotel to attend Safari Surf School’s women’s retreat, a good insect repellent was the first item on my packing list. I ended up bringing two: Fragrance With Benefits' NoMo travel set (, $65) and my standard Deet bug spray — and the latter never even left my toiletry bag. The NoMo set included a unisex body crème, shower gel, and perfume that successfully kept me from becoming the itchy, polka-dotted mess of a human I usually morph into after spending too much time out-of-doors. And it all smelled amazing. The perfumer behind , Olivia Jan, studied scent-making in Versailles at the prestigious ISIPCA perfume school and spent years perfecting her craft at Chanel and Robertet as a senior perfumer. Now, she and business partner Corinne Gillespie create functional fragrances inspired by their love of seeing the world. VIDEO: Travel Tidy With Marie Kondo   The first thing I liked about the NoMo products was how light they all are, not just in scent but in weight, too. Some bug sprays can leave a greasy residue on the skin, but both the spray and the body crème absorb right in and a little will go a long way. They all smell bright and soft — nothing like that overpowering I-bathed-in-citronella insect repellent smell. With notes of Florida orange, Sicilian lemon, French lavender, and insect-repelling peppermint, geranium, ...

  • Here's Why Working Out While Wearing a Full Face of Makeup Is a Really Bad Idea

    Posted 2018-09-08 14:00:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    Scrolling through our social media feeds, it's not surprising to see our female BFFs and fitness influencers posting workout selfies while—yep—wearing makeup. We understand wanting to hide a daunting pimple or two, but going for a run or hitting the gym in a full face of makeup doesn't seem like the greatest idea for your skin. After all, can a layer of product really allow your skin to breathe as you sweat through your favorite class? But, what if you work out on your lunch break (we applaud you) and don't want to remove your makeup just to reapply it an hour later? Is it that bad? Well, our experts really, really want you to think twice. Here, dermatologists explain why exercising in makeup is a huge no-no. Exercising causes blood vessels to expand, increases blood flow to the skin, and opens pores. Sweat and bacteria get trapped under layers of makeup, preventing the skin from dissipating heat properly and leaving it prone to pore-occlusion (or becoming majorly clogged!), explains New York-based dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD. "The trapping of bacteria and sweat in the (now dilated) pores can enlarge pores over time and cause blackheads, while the trapping of heat can flare temperature-sensitive conditions such as rosacea, ultimately causing redness and uneven skin tone," Dr. Nazarian adds. Bottom line: makeup covers up our sweat glands, which can clog pores and lead to acne or irritation, which is just so not worth it.

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Favorite Disney Movies Are Probably Yours Too

    Posted 2018-09-08 12:30:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    Get the popcorn ready! As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met with children at the annual WellChild Awards on Tuesday, one award winner, 10-year-old Chloe Henderson, boldly asked the royal couple a very important question. “There’s a question I have to ask you,” she told Meghan and Harry, as the royal laughed and hid his head in his hands. “What’s your favorite Disney film?” Harry said he loved The Lion King, while Meghan replied that she has “always loved The Little Mermaid.” Harry isn’t the only royal who fittingly loves The Lion King. Prince William revealed last year that the 1994 film is also . “He quite likes The Lion King, we’ve watched that a few times,” he said at the time. During Tuesday’s event in London, Harry also revealed that he liked Zootopia and Moana, and shared one of his favorite parts of the latter film is “when the chicken [Heihei] comes up and finds himself out at sea in a boat.” Harry further impressed Chloe when he shared a fun fact about The Lion King. “You know who does the voice of Zazu?” he asked. “Rowan Atkinson, who plays Mr Bean.” Meghan then recommended another favorite animated flick — the 2016 DreamWorks film, Leap! “Harry likes it because she [the main character] has got red hair,” Chloe said afterwards. And a ...

  • Everything You Need to Know About the New Kate Spade

    Posted 2018-09-08 09:00:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    This  marks a lot of firsts for the Kate Spade brand. It's the first Kate Spade collection to show after the eponymous designer passed away on June 5 — though Spade herself left the company in 2006, her influence is still a significant part of the brand's aesthetic. It's also the first time we'll see the brand's latest influence: Creative Director, Nicola Glass.  Glass, who previously worked at Michael Kors, was tasked with modernizing Kate Spade. There are new takes on the beloved in pebbled leather, exposed labels in bright pinks (think late '90s Kate Spade) and dresses that epitomize the concept of "day to night." And of course, there's a "Nicola" bag (all under $400) which comes with high fashion hardware and a twist-lock in the shape of a heart, a tribute to the distinctive changes the creative director has begun to make.  We sat down with Glass ahead of the Kate Spade NYFW show to discuss the brand's new direction. So to start, why did you decide, after so many seasons of a ...

  • The 7 Things You Need to Know About Barack Obamas Tough Love Speech

    Posted 2018-09-07 21:15:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    When Barack Obama took the stage in front of an audience of students at the University of Illinois on Friday, he was not there to mess around. He was there to both scold and provide hope, dad-style. Obama turned his visit into a "State of Our Democracy" review, and we are not getting an A-plus, you guys.  Here are the notable important things he said during the speech, including this helpful reminder about democracy: "This is not a rock concert. This is not Coachella. We don’t need a messiah." Preach. He said Donald Trump's name for the first time since leaving office. It's unclear how he's managed to get this far without saying it, but he has.  “It did not start with Donald Trump. He is a symptom, not the cause,” Obama said, condemning what the sitting president has unleashed in politics. “He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.” He called Trump out for not denouncing Nazis after Charlottesville. "We're supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we're sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers," he said. "How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?" He alluded to the New York Times anonymous op-ed from a member of Trump's team. "The claim that everything will turn out okay because there are people inside the White House who secretly ...

  • Timothee Chalamet Got a Haircut and I Need a Moment to Process It

    Posted 2018-09-07 20:30:00 by: Mr. Bootstate

    How is  's hair so great?  That's the question I ask myself every time I see a photo of the Call Me by Your Name star. Chalamet's hair texture, is dare I say, perfect. It's wavy and impeccably disheveled regardless of whether or not he's tucked the front pieces behind his ears, it's flipping out from underneath a baseball cap, or slightly in his face, swooping down on his cheekbones — it's the exact look I am going for when I use a flat iron to give myself beachy waves every morning.  However, as of approximately 3 p.m. on September 7, 2018, I no longer stan for Chalamet's hair. What's made me quit up and loving his hair so abruptly? He chopped it all off.  Rich Polk/Getty Images for IMDb Chalamet showed up to the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival to promote his upcoming film Beautiful Boy with a dramatically different look. The actor has a bowl cut. His new style is choppy, hits right above the ear, and it's short on the sides. Yes, it's the same cut moms give their sons using a salad bowl and kitchen scissors.  ...
