This video should alleviate any doubts about whether you need to be putting on sunscreen on a regular basis, even if you don't have any visible damage.

Check out what skin looks like under ultraviolet light:

Artist Thomas Leveritt had women and men of all ages view their faces under an ultraviolet lens, revealing a lot of things they did not expect.

Too much time unprotected in the sun (or tanning bed, Snooki) can increase freckles, age spots, and sun damage that might not be visible to the naked eye.

SPF, the active ingredient in sunscreen, is the best defense against aging. Under the ultraviolet camera, SPF shows up as a black barrier against UVA and UVB rays.

Without it? You're rolling the dice. The difference between regular folks and children (or vigilant sunscreen wearers) who appear flawless were striking.

While we like to see celebrities with and without makeup (below), we don't want to see them, or you, without sunscreen. Take care of the skin you're in ...

According to a new report, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian will soon attach their last name to a line of hair care products such as curling irons and blow dryers.

Which leaves us with only one question:

Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian didn't already have their last name attached to a line of hair care products?!?

In the latest of several recent controversies surrounding Instagram, Samm Newman, a 19-year-old woman from Ohio, says her account was deleted.

Because, she is convinced, she posted selfies of herself in her bra and underwear, which plenty of people do ... but Samm happens to be a Size 24.

For Newman, Instagram had become a safe haven, an online environment in which to be proud of her fuller figure and find other women like her.

Posting photos to Instagram and seeing other girls displaying similar ones empowered her, and that support helped her be less ashamed of her size.

Considering that she spent her high school years bullied and depressed to the point of self-harm, this was a huge deal ... and then it came crashing down.

That safe space suddenly disappeared without explanation, and Samm could only assume her Instagram was targeted because of her Size 24 body.

"My Instagram, this was my safe place because when I was there, I could share anything," Samm Newman lamented. "Fat is not a bad word."

Lorde ditches her typical grunge/goth/intentionally non-glamorous look on Teen Vogue's latest cover, upon which she glows like we're not used to seeing.

Lorde Teen Vogue Cover
Lorde covers the new issue of Teen Vogue. It's a first for the singer.

The Grammy-Winning singer (real name Ella Yelich-O'Connor), 17, dons traditional makeup and a basic plaid scarf, while letting her locks run loose.

When it comes to her usual appearance - in other words, sans Teen Vogue cover shoot prep - she's the first to admit that her style is on the plainer side.

Although she understands there are "expectations in [the] industry about looking a certain way," Lorde tells the mag she prefers her tomboy look.

"I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys’ clothes too. I guess that’s why I get labeled as ‘the grumpy girl,’ because I don’t play into that.”

Although she famously declares "we'll never be royals" in her breakout song, the teen herself is beginning to adjust to her newfound fame and lifestyle.

What do you get when you take Kim Kardashian’s boobs and combine them with Scarlett Johansson’s hair and Megan Fox’s face?

According to men... you get the perfect woman.

According to women, however, you get someone with overly large breasts and a face that doesn't look enough like that of Cara Delevingne.

Indeed, a fascinating new study reveals that the two genders have a very different idea of what is most appealing about them.

As the following illustration depicts, women think men want them to be on the slim side, while a composite of the ideal female form proves that men have no problem with some junk in the trunk - and in other places as well.

The Perfect Woman?

What about when roles are reversed?

Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova has no plans to reproduce, which is probably cause for celebration ... and she doesn't believe in races mixing, either.

Say what now?

In an interview with GQ, the aspiring plastic-human hybrid slash Ukrainian model (or whatever she is) opens up about parenting and why she doesn't want kids.

"The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me," Valeria Lukyanova says. "Most people have children to fulfill their own ambitions, not to give anything."

"They don't think about what they can give this child, what they can teach her."

"They just try to shape her according to some weird script - whatever they couldn't do in life, like becoming a writer or a doctor. I'd rather die from torture.

"The worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle."

Hard to argue her point about having kids for the right reasons, but her comments on the "degeneration" of beauty and the reasons behind it are eye-opening.

Lorde, we are all on your team.

For the second time in a few weeks, this 17-year old has used the power of social media to send an important message to her young followers:

Be proud of who you are... flaws and all.

In February, Lorde posted a picture of herself in bed with acne cream, showing off her warts for millions of followers; and now she's called out a photo agency for trying to pretend as if the singer has a perfect complexion.

On Sunday, the Grammy winner shared two contrasting images of herself from her performance at Lollapalooza in Chile, one of which Photoshopped away her zits and the other of which put them on full display.

See the images in question below:

Think Kim Kardashian is a fashion maven? Think she knows all there is to know about what looks best on other people, considering she has attached her name to countless beauty products?

Think again.

With her family being sued for allegedly stealing the name of their makeup line from businesswoman Lee Tillett, Kim was recently deposed by opposing counsel and forced to admit the following:

“I’m not really good at saying what I think would look good [on other people]."
