The need to look and feel beautiful is the world’s oldest desire rooted in insecurity, and in the age of social media, vanity has become more prevalent. So it’s no wonder that many women and men are constantly trying new products that claim to diminish wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and give a natural glow.

Luckily there are multiple ways to fade, diminish and even prevent the unwanted marks with the use of over-the-counter lightening creams, prescriptions, home remedies and professional skin treatments, like laser therapy.

These discounts are perfect for someone looking to get the most out of their money, because after all, you are paying for it.
As a college town, New Brunswick has a decent amount of fun to offer: A wide range of gourmet restaurants, lively bars and coffee shops, an art gallery here, a record shop there.

During a particularly warm first week of school, we talked with some trendy passerbys on campus in between classes. Here are some highlights and trends that are sure to carry on throughout the semester.
