KRISTEN'S PICK - WINNER
Is chivalry dead?
It is according to single women who responded to a recent match.com survey. In fact, a whopping 73% said chivalry is dead. And we’re not talking about helping you put on your coat or pulling the chair out for you or other seemingly old fashioned dating rituals. The number one thing single women wished men would do is pretty simple: 84% of women said they just want a guy to call when he says he will. 83% said that it would make them happy if the guy they went out with checked to see if they got home safely at the end of a date. 82% said not cancelling plans at the last minute was a big deal to them. 80% said just a quick text during the day would do the trick. 78% said turning his phone off during dinner on a date was the kind of chivalry they were craving.

Does Toothpaste Shrink A Pimple?
Waking up on the day of a big event to find a big, angry pimple in your face is no fun. But realizing you don’t have any acne spot treatment for it makes it that much worse. So what about that hack we’ve heard about - using a dab of toothpaste to clear it up - does that really work?
According to Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai hospital, it used to be a legit solution. “Toothpaste has been used as a home remedy to treat pimples because many toothpastes used to contain an ingredient called triclosan, which is an antimicrobial that helps kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin," he explains.
But triclosan is a questionable ingredient so a lot of toothpaste doesn’t contain it anymore. According to the FDA, triclosan has been linked to hormone disruption in studies, so better safe than sorry.
Zeichner says toothpaste could still calm your pimple in a pinch because most of the formulas are made with drying agents like alcohol and baking soda. So use it as a last resort, but he advises sticking to traditional acne medication over toothpaste, if you have that option.
