There's no denying the allure of a beautiful complexion -- or of an illuminated department store beauty counter, filled with elegant frosted jars and sleek glass bottles that promise a dewy glow and taut skin. But there's also no denying the appeal of lower price tags, found on similar products at your local drugstore. At the department store, you'll encounter trained sales associates ready to help you choose; at the drugstore, you're on your own, facing lengthy rows of pump bottles and squeeze tubes that all claim to moisturize, balance, tighten skin or erase wrinkles.

Fashion designer Tom Ford may be as well known for his impeccably groomed looks as he is for his flawless tailoring. So it was no surprise when he introduced a line of eight men's grooming products this month or when he noted that the collection was inspired by his own personal skin care regimen. "I think I am one of the few male designers who could actually sell skin care, because I am 51, and, on a good day, I don't look 51," Ford told us, with a lack of modesty that somehow seemed justified for a guy whose name is a Jay Z song title ("Tom Ford" on the "Magna Carta Holy Grail" album)

Amy Soergel's lip gloss was making her sick. The problem, she realized, was gluten -- hydrologized wheat protein, to be exact. Then she went to the hairdresser who used a shampoo that made her neck burn. Again, it contained gluten. "There's hidden gluten in many places you may not consider," including stamp and envelope glues, toothpaste and lip balms, says Soergel, who has a store, Naturally Soergel's, near Pittsburgh that caters to people with allergies. Indeed, for people with celiac disease, a bit of gluten that might get swallowed from a lipstick or a stream of shampoo in the shower can be enough to cause illness.

Houston socialite Gail Gross was baking a meat loaf. But when she checked it, some 45 minutes later, it wasn't done because the pilot light in the gas oven had gone out. She bent down and stuck her head below the broiler to relight it. In the split second it takes to strike a match, the whole thing blew up in her face. Literally.

With a clientele of Hollywood celebrities including Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston and Alicia Silverstone, Dawn DaLuise was well-known as the skin-care guru of the stars. The 55-year-old former model ran a West Hollywood "skin refinery" that used electrical muscle stimulation instead of the typical steam-and-cream facial. Vogue and InStyle magazines have featured her, and she's the go-to beauty expert for national publications. So last year, when esthetician Gabriel Suarez moved in a couple doors down and started offering facials and male body waxing, the competition created tension.

Not so long ago, perusing Lanvin at H&M, Zac Posen and Jean Paul Gaultier at Target and C. Ronson at JCPenney would have seemed like the first indicator of a fashion apocalypse, the stuff of Anna Wintour's nightmares. Yet since H&M's 2004 Karl Lagerfeld limited-edition capsule collection launched and sold out within an hour at several locations, a big-name designer's survival is practically contingent on one such street cred collaboration or lower-priced diffusion line. Presumably, mass-market stores such as Kmart, Kohl's and the rest need the designers just as much.

M any of us worry about drinking tap water. All those chemicals, all those impurities, all those worries. But it's OK to clean our faces with the stuff, isn't it? Not so, warns Olga Moreno, a "facial therapist" at Salon Salon in Dana Point. A better approach is a purer solution, says Moreno, who has specialized in skin care for 24 years. She recommends using a cream or lotion-based cleanser that goes on without water.

A West Hollywood skin care expert who allegedly tried to hire a hit man to snuff out the competition pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles County courtroom Wednesday. Dawn DaLuise, 55, who boasted a celebrity clientele including Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston and Alicia Silverstone, is charged with one count of solicitation of murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail. The allegation has stunned neighbors and associates, who said they knew about the rivalry between DaLuise and esthetician Gabriel Suarez but never thought it would go so far. Suarez moved in a couple doors down from DaLuise's business last year and started offering facials and male body waxing; the competition created tension.

With multi-step rituals performed by Japanese geisha, a 500-year-old book on Korean medicine and an Indonesian great-grandmother's face mask made from turmeric and black tea, local beauty entrepreneurs are using the traditional principles of other cultures for a new wave of intriguing product lines. While many beauty collections are founded on the latest scientific innovations, others are reverting to centuries-old traditions embraced by people in distant lands. The result is a slew of collections with engaging pedigrees.

In the first half of this century, the grande dames of cosmetics--Helena Rubinstein, Elizabeth Arden and Estee Lauder--started out behind the stove, cooking up batches of face cream from scratch. The results--Creme Valaze, Venetian Cream and Super Rich All Purpose Creme, respectively--launched cosmetic empires.

Attaining and maintaining beautiful skin requires more than night creams, Botox cocktails and tutorials on how to use cosmetics. True beauty comes from healthy habits, says Dr. Howard Murad of the namesake skin care line. "To me health and beauty are synonymous. When you're healthy, you're going to be more beautiful," he says. Now he's taking that philosophy beyond the confines of his dermatology practice in El Segundo by offering an immersive weekend health retreat at the Parker Palm Springs in September.
