"You can drink as much water and wear as much sunscreen as you want, but the most effective skin-care trick is being rich," writes Amanda Mull for The Atlantic. In the piece, Mull examines how the wealthy tend to be visibly well moisturized and calls B.S. on millionaires who swear their smooth, even-toned complexions are a result of sleep and hydration.

Cartier loses trademark dispute over the word "love" 
Cartier's attempt to trademark the word "love" has failed. In 2017, the historic jeweler filed a counterclaim to stop MoneyMax, a Singaporean pawnbroker, from receiving trademark protection for its "Love Gold" jewelry line, because it insisted the term was too close to the branding of its Love bracelet collection.
