Stop stretching out your set! We hate to deliver depressing news, but the fact is, some breast sag is inevitable. Having a baby, breastfeeding, and racking up more birthdays all contribute to a loss of elasticity of collagen, the connective tissue under the skin—leaving your set more deflated than firm.

Here’s the thing: Some boob behaviors that seem like they have nothing to do with sag can actually contribute to it—so if you avoid them, your

“With the skin being the largest organ of your body, the cuticles are the nail’s last line of defense as a protective barrier.” We freeze up every time our manicurist reaches for a pair of sharp mini clippers and ask, “Do you want to cut your cuticles?” Deep down we know that we really shouldn’t, but seeing ragged hangnails along our fingertips forces us to give in to cuticle clipping just for the sake of having a picture-perfect mani. Then, we regret our irrational decision once we notice just a few days later that our cuticles are dry and peeling again.
