How to figure out what types of skin care products are right for you
That’s why StyleWise style editor Jon Jordan is here to help you figure out what’s best for your face. You’ll often see skincare products that are either opaque or clear. Lotions that are cream-based and heavy are the opaque options, and products that are see-through are a little lighter on your skin.

The same can be applied to a lot of other beauty products, such as shampoo, conditioner and even facial mists.
How you can make wearing a mask fashionable and fun
Wearing a mask out in public to help stop the spread of COVID-19 is just another sign of the times these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it.

Don’t go overboard with them, but a few could really make a black mask pop in the light.

Did you know you can give yourself a full spa treatment, with ingredients found in your own home?
The spa might be closed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself while quarantining, right? Believe it or not, there are tons of remedies for facial and hair treatments -- that you can do with ingredients that you probably already have deep in your cupboard or refrigerator. StyleWise style editor Jon Jordan had his friend Katrina show him just how easy it is to create a supple face mask and color correctors for hair with pantry item staples, such as milk, honey, and yes, even ketchup. It might seem a little strange at first, but using organic and natural ingredients like milk and honey can make a luxurious face mask -- and if your hair is damaged by the sun or chlorine from a pool, ketchup can take care of that right away. Obviously, nothing compares to a day trip to a spa, getting waited on hand and foot, but with a little imagination (and some at-home ingredients), you can turn your home into the spa of your dreams, even in quarantine.
Is your skin super dry from all the hand-washing? These pantry items can help
What do olive oil, corn meal and raw sugar have in common? No, they’re not the first three ingredients to an amazing baking recipe. They are all things that can help repair your dry hands, especially if you’ve been washing them a lot more than usual, considering the coronavirus pandemic. Jordan says that using normal lotion will give you some relief, but there are many treatments you can do on your hands (or any dry skin on your body) with items that you probably have at home right now. You can watch the latest episode of StyleWise above -- and make sure you subscribe to see new StyleWise videos regularly.
Everything you need to know before cutting your hair at home
But before you whip out the first set of scissors you see sitting around in the junk drawer, StyleWise style editor Jon Jordan has some helpful tips on what you need to know about giving yourself an at-home haircut. 1 Jordan recommends is having the proper scissors (or shears, if you’re fancy) to get the job done. Jordan recommends investing in a pair of thinning shears. The thinning shears are more forgiving and do a better job at blending the edges, as opposed to a regular pair of shears. You can check out the full StyleWise video, above, for some more advice.
Want the perfect 'quarantine haircut’? Make sure you’re choosing the correct clippers
If you’ve never given yourself (or a someone else) a quick haircut, you’ll soon realize why cosmetology school exists. Anyone who has gone to the barber knows that they use different clippers to measure how much hair comes off. Most people run into trouble while cutting their hair at home because they start with too short of a guard, Jordan said. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. As always, practice makes perfect to nail a quarantine haircut at home, so don’t beat yourself up too badly if it looks like you cut your hair with a weed whacker as opposed to an electric razor.
