We’re all busy. The modern day woman has a packed schedule from the moment she wakes up to the moment she finally rests her weary head. It’s never been more important to slow down and take time for ourselves in order to maintain the best physical, mental and emotional well-being possible. We chat with Natalie Thorogood, founder of wellness brand Soak Society, on the importance of taking five for yourself.
With the multitude of stresses in today’s society, it’s no wonder that so many of us have difficulty getting to sleep. Getting enough sleep is paramount to our overall well being though, so we’ve put together a few tips to help you get your eight hours every night. (more…)
Ageing is one of those elusive things the beauty industry is always striving to address. In terms of skin and looking our best, most of us strive to defy the natural and inevitable process of ageing. With the knowledge we have today in regards to health, diet, exercise and stress relief, there’s no reason we can’t look and feel our best at any age. In saying that, looking after our skin with a good regime will help defy ageing as much as possible and help us age gracefully and beautifully.
Most of us have suffered with hormonal acne at one point in our lives, it can be debilitating and frustrating and at times feel like nothing will make it go away. Although more prevalent during our teens and mature years (e.g. women going through menopause), hormonal acne can effect us at any age, during any time of our life. Hormonal acne is caused by an imbalance of hormones, such as the prevalence of testosterone or a decline of estrogen, and this imbalance results in a build up of dead skin cells, excess sebum or oil production and an increase in bacteria. This causes the skin to suffer from bumps, breakouts, excess oiliness or dryness, inflammation and redness, this can also be quite painful due to the inflammation in the skin.
