Raise your hands if you’ve got oily skin concerns. It’s not a competition but I bet my skin is oilier than yours. I’ve yet to meet anyone other than my mum who’s face produces as much oil as mine. I loathe it and even though they tell you that oily skin is less prone to wrinkles which means you look 20 at 40 years of age, I still don’t care for it. What causes oily skin? There are many factors that contribute to the production of oil on your skin.
Those who know me well know that I’m a feminist. I’m not a radical feminist, my views on feminism are liberal – what I stand for is equality and justice for all. I guess that in theory makes me both feminist and egalitarian. As a woman, I believe that we are capable of doing what a man can do and should therefore not be discriminated against because of gender. Society teaches us that certain jobs are for women while others are for men. But society is wrong. And we must
Say goodbye to ombre lips, two-toned lips are the latest and hottest beauty trend. I first spotted this trend on Instagram and it immediately grabbed my attention. The lips, not unlike the eyes are the focal point of your face. I’m that girl who aims to buy the brightest, boldest and most unique lip colour at the shop. Anything from purple, blue, pink or black, I’ve got. So, the two-toned lips trend instantly became a ‘ must try’ for me. The two-tone lips trend involves using two different shade/colour of
Affordable skin care products that work is not a myth. You can enjoy great skin using products that won’t break the bank. About two and a half years ago, I started to experience severe breakouts on my face. These breakouts, I realised were caused by my diet, too much sugar in the form of chocolates, ice-cream and biscuits. Not wanting to cut these things from my diet, I realised I needed to up my skincare game and so, I did. I started by first going back on the contraceptive pill

This summer, I have compiled a list of my January beauty essentials: Clicks Sun Protect Cooling SPF 30, R104,95 No matter the colour of your skin, even if your melanin pops the most, sunblock is, and should be an important part of your skincare, especially in summer.

They say your hair is your crowning glory, this I know to be true. It is why issues like receding hairline and thinning hair can be distressing and even depressing for many women. Receding hairline is not as common in women as it is in men but traction alopecia is. What is traction alopecia? It is damage to the hair caused by excessive pulling on the natural hair follicle. Ballerinas, gymnasts and weave wearers are some of the women that suffer from this condition. In my early twenties, I used
Over the past few months, beauty has become a little obsession of mine. I am constantly on the hunt for the best beauty products out there. I have always had a love for all things beauty related but the fact that I’ll soon be turning 30 years old has got me a little spooked and concerned for the future of my skin. While I may not be able to turn back the hands of time and stay in my twenties forever, I can at least try to reduce the signs of

I’ve been wearing make-up since I was 13 years old but didn’t know much about primers until a few years ago. However, I am no expert. I got curious about primers because I like to know what’s hot and happening in the beauty world. If something is supposed to help enhance your look, you better believe I know about it. I may not do everything I hear about but I am “in the know” ;). Primers are quite frankly a must if you work over nine hours a day and
