SKIN
• Varicose veins begone! The FDA has just approved a new injectable drug called Asclera, which has been used to successfully treat unsightly veins in Europe and will be available in the states next month. [Bellasugar]

• In an effort to raise skin-cancer awareness, ABC weatherman Sam Champion had cancerous cells removed from his shoulder and shared the whole thing live on Good Morning America this morning. [ABC]

• Experts say that the old phrase “looks can kill” might actually be true. A new survey shows that people base the idea of health on physical appearance, leaving actual medical issues that don’t alter one's physical appearance, like high blood pressure, untreated. [Daily Mail UK]

MAKEUP
• M.A.C. is releasing their new “To the Beach” collection, with blushes, eye shadows, and lip pencils in an array of beachy, sun-kissed shades. All of the packaging and apparently even the makeup itself is adorned with seashells, seahorses, and other friendly sea creatures. [Temptalia]

NAILS
