From the company that brought you Botox, now there's Latisse, the first FDA approved prescription drug for longer, fuller eyelashes. It's not mascara, either. Allergan Pharmaceuticals noticed that their eye drops for glaucoma also produced lush lashes in patients.

By Dorkys Ramos | 12/18/2008 - 17:15

Let’s face it: With Mami’s pernil in the oven and the office party’s open bar calling your name, the holidays are probably not the best time to start a new diet. But there’s plenty you can do to fight off those celebration pounds without depriving yourself:

1. Go to bed. Studies show that being a sleep-deprived zombie can make it harder to tell when you’re full and lead to an increase in hormones that stimulate hunger.

By Latina Staff | 11/13/2008 - 11:15

Many years ago, cosmetics tycoon and Estee Lauder chairman Leonard Lauder observed that when the economy stalled, lipstick sales tended to spike and accordingly coined the phrase “lipstick index."

During the Depression and in the time following 9/11, there were 25% increases in lipstick sales. “The lipstick index is a way to judge a recession,” wrote NY Times op-ed columnnist Maureen Dowd in 2001. “When the economy goes down, lipstick sales go up. Women indulge in smaller luxuries and skip bigger ones.”
