How to Keep Your “End of Summer” Glow

By Joanne Rosa

We’re not mad that the fall weather is finally here, but we’re a little annoyed that our summer glow is fading away.

 

You can’t keep that summer glow forever, but you can try to extend it for as long as possible, and even fake it.

Oh yes.

Associate Professor at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine and family physician Dr. Jennifer Caudle gave us some tips to extend your summer glow.

Maintain Sunscreen Routine
It’s not hot anymore and you’ve already put away your spring and summer clothes. We hear you, but the sun’s rays are still out and can cause damage to your beautiful skin.

 

You’re not doing yourself any favors by skipping out on sunscreen. “Continue using sunscreen daily, and make sure it’s at least SPF 30.” Your face can still grab some needed vitamin D, but that doesn’t mean you need to grab premature signs of aging.

The Exfoliation of It All
Oprah exfoliates, and so should you!

 

“Exfoliating is a great way to remove dead skin cells and ensure your skin maintains its summer glow… avoid exfoliation if your skin has any cuts, or is sunburned.”

Please, for the love of The Rock, do not over exfoliate. This is a sure way to make your skin raw, and irritated. We’re not trying to scrub away the weekend’s scandalous behavior. You’ll never be able to scrub that away, dear. Gently massage an exfoliator of your choice, into your skin. Wash away with warm water (hot water will dry out your skin), and follow up with Wendy’s favorite weekend activity.

Moisturize
Haven’t you been listening to Auntie Wendy all of these years?!

 

Moisturizing your skin has a ton of benefits, one of them happens to be keeping that sun-kissed look a little longer. “Moisturizing is a great way to keep skin supple… consider using a humidifier to add moisture to the air.”

Self Tanner & Bronzer
Shout out to our fair skinned followers. This one’s for you.

 

“Self-tanner is a great way-and a safe way-to keep a bronzed glow.” There are a number of self-tanners out there to sample. If you can’t find one that works for you, or fake tanning just isn’t your thing, go for a bronzer instead. Remember not to apply the bronzer all over your face. Apply bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face and create dimension. Go for a color that is one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Get the look, without the damage!

The Oldest Trick in the Book
If you’re ever in doubt about how to look like you just stepped off the beach, throw on something white.

 

We’re not above sporting a little illusion here at Wendy. And we know how you Wendy Watchers like to dip it and do it, so fear not; you don’t have to be an angel to wear all white.

New Music: DJ Kay Slay feat. French Montana, Dave East, & Zoey Dollaz – ‘Rosé Showers’

DJ Kay Slay pours up another high-powered collaboration with “Rosé Showers” featuring French Montana, Dave East, and Zoey Dollaz.

Following a Montana verse about having sex, making bread, and sipping Hennessy, East raps about Gabrielle Union and his love for the bubbly.

“I was in the trap with my gun in hand,” he raps. “Now it’s champagne, I don’t wanna dance / Rosé, Dom P, Clicquot, I’m bent / Blue hundreds, fuck what I spent.”

Finally, after a hook by J-Delice, Zoey rounds out the track with a final verse that references Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G. and his nightclub activities. “Hundred bottles of Rosé, 10 bad bitches up in the section,” he raps. “Lotta real ones, lotta weapons / Tell them hatin’ ni**as get to steppin’.”

This is just the latest release from Kay Slay’s forthcoming album, which has already spawned “Cold Summer” (featuring Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Kevin Gates), “Jealousy” (featuring Busta Rhymes, Tech N9ne, and The Game), and “Wild One” (featuring 2 Chainz, Kevin Gates, and Rick Ross).

The Big Brother is due Sept. 22.

New Music: Khalid – ‘Perfect’

After joining Lorde, Post Malone, and SZA on “Homemade Dynamite (Remix),” Khalid unleashes the soulful “Perfect.”

Calling it “a song from the soul,” the stirring track features the VMA winner’s soothing vocals over an acoustic guitar. “I’ve been on my own for a long time,” he sings. “I’m feeling kind of lonely / Nothing’s fun when I’m the only one out here who knows me.”

Khalid also offers introspection on changes, sadness, and the search for perfection. “I know I’ll never be perfect,” he sings. “I’m thinking out loud, but I know someone will hear me / Crying out for help.”

After unleashing the rough draft, the “Location” singer explained that it might remain the only version available. “I’m probs gonna leave it at rough draft,” he said. “The first song I released was a rough draft on SoundCloud. I’m leaving this on SoundCloud as well. Thank you guys, love you.”

Currently, Khalid has four songs on the Hot 100, including “Young Dumb & Broke” (No. 26), “Location” (No. 28), Marshmello’s “Silence” (No. 59), and Logic’s Alessia Cara-assisted “1-800-273-8255.” The latter is presently No. 3 overall, marking his highest entry yet.

DMX Is Sober, But Will Remain in Rehab

After reports of “great progress” in rehab, DMX is choosing to extend his stay in the program.

X’s lawyer, Murray Richman, tells TMZ that X is sober and “back to being human again.” He also claims that the MC, who lost weight due to his recent addiction struggles, has already gained 40 pounds in treatment.

Despite the fact that X is almost done with the New England program, the rapper is asking to stay for another 30 days, according to Richman. He is currently allowed to take day trips to a nearby town with a friend.

The superstar, who reportedly failed four drug tests in August, was on house arrest for tax evasion before entering rehab. Richman claims that they will focus on the legal matter once he’s out.

In July, the Ruff Ryder was arrested for allegedly engaging in a multi-year scheme to conceal $1.7 million in taxes from the Internal Revenue Service. If found guilty on all charges, he could face over 40 years behind bars.

Listen to Rick Ross Remix Total’s Can’t You See’

Rick Ross takes it back to 1995 with his remix to Total’s “Can’t You See” featuring Bruno Mali.

Renzel kicks off the track with a shoutout to Bad Boy, while his Maybach Music Group drop pops up in the background. “Follow the code,” he raps. “Shorty swallow me whole / I met her climbing a pole and let her climb in the Rolls / Ever since Bad Boy, we’re elegant.”

After Total’s infectious hook, Bruno arrives with some bars about his Toledo penthouse, being undefeated, and pouring purple up by the liter. “I’m just a ghetto kid who made it big off entertainment,” he raps. “You in the light so much, bitch, they gon’ need restraining / Pull up in the four-do’ / Name ringing like Quasimodo / I was bumpin’ Total / Tell your bitch to get off my scrotum.”

At nearly five minutes, this version also includes Notorious B.I.G.’s classic verse from the song, which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 back when it first dropped in ’95.

Gucci Mane’s Book Signing Interrupted by Animal Rights Activists

Gucci Mane’s book signing at a New York Barnes & Noble was interrupted by animal rights activists on Tuesday (Sept. 19).

During the release day meet-and-greet for The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, Guwop was approached by an activist, who had been posing as a fan. “Word on the street is that you thinking of going vegan,” he said. “But you can’t be vegan if you keep wearing that fur!”

After shaking Gucci’s hand, the man was joined by a woman. Together, they chanted “Shame on Gucci, animal abuser,” while being escorted out. Meanwhile, DropTopWop stood calmly while his security swiftly took action.

Taking to Instagram after the signing, Gucci thanked fans for their support and did not mention the incident. “Off probation today and my book is in stores NOW! What a day,” he wrote, adding, “On jet headed to tour in Ohio leaving NYC thanks NYC for showing love and supporting me at book signing.”

Gucci isn’t the only one who’s been approached by activists during a book signing. In April, anti-fur protesters interfered with Kelly Rowland during her meet-and-greet for Whoa, Baby!
