2. Britney Spears Albums, Ranked

As said in Britney’s infamous hit “Outrageous,” “B-girl ain’t lost the beat” and nearly two decades later, she’s still making heads nod and bodies move. And there are no signs of her slowing down either.

It’s hard to believe that this year marks the 20th anniversary of “…Baby One More Time,” the single that launched Britney Spears’ career and skyrocketed her straight to fame. In those two decades, Spears has continued to dominate the headlines – for better or for worse – and she made news this month by announcing a big return to Vegas. The pop superstar’s new residency, “Domination,” hits Vegas in May, and tickets are already selling fast.

According to insiders, the new show promises a grittier, more hip-hop-influenced sound from Spears, who will be performing many of her biggest hits, along with with new music (long rumored to be on the way).

Through her ups and downs, Britney has held our collective attention, as a singer, songwriter and consummate performer. To celebrate our favorite pop princess, we take a look at Britney’s past nine studio albums, ranking them from worst to best.

3. The Best Shampoo To Prevent Hair Loss and Get Rid of Dandruff

Hair loss may not seem like the end of the world for some people, but it can really put a damper on your confidence regardless of your gender. The best time to start taking proactive measures is when you first begin to notice it. One of the best solutions we’ve found is the Biotin Hair Loss Shampoo for Men and Women.

This shampoo uses hair-boosting biotin along with other natural herbal ingredients to restore healthy oil levels in the hair and delivers nutrients to the scalp to help support thick, voluminous follicles. It’s an extra strength formula that’s highly effective yet extremely gentle, and it won’t burn or irritate sensitive scalps.

4. Guys, Steal These Products From Your Girlfriend’s Drawer

When it comes to skin care, guys have a lot to learn from females. Actually, this is true about a lot of things, but the realm of beauty routines can really seem like arcane sorcery to a lot of us, especially those of us whose “skin care” routine used to consist entirely of shaving and sometimes dabbing with Kleenex once or twice if we cut ourselves.

So why not take a few skin care and self-care pointers from those who may have literally been doing this every day since they were teenagers? After all, if you were trying to pick up a new hobby and you lived with someone who’d practiced it for a thousand hours, you’d be a fool not to seek their guidance.

We found 5 kinds of skin care products from New York-based beauty brand, WinkyLux. Aside from their super sleek packaging, the brand is known for their commitment to cruelty-free products, making highly effective formulas without any parabens, sulfates, gluten, phthalates and animal testing.

They may look a little girly, but these products provide real results – and should be added to your daily routine. They’re so good, you could steal them from your girlfriend’s drawer. Just ask her first, so it’s cute and not weird.
