Will it ever end? Ever wonder why even in your forties you’re still suffering from oiliness, blackheads, clogging and in some cases pimples and breakouts. Or perhaps it’s happening to someone you know? It all seems a bit unfair. It’s even got a name—Adult Acne. Perhaps you thought to reach your forties was going to […]
When does the first wrinkle show up? There’s something about turning 40. From my own personal experience, the thought of it, was far worse than the actual ‘being 40’. Although for the first month or so it was really hard to let those words pass my lips. I’m 40. Even worse when it feels like everyone […]
Another year, another wrinkle. Last years birthday pics troubled you. Of course, you’re confident, assured and yet, seeing those changes is unsettling. It’s subtle but you can’t deny your beginning to notice a change in your appearance. Those lines around your mouth? When did they appear? And, as if out of nowhere, you seem to have […]
Once upon a time, way back in the day. Well okay, not that long ago, but a few years ago, I was sharing a house with a friend, when on a typical single girl evening, my flatmate exclaimed that she was in desperate need of chocolate and, as I was venturing out, would I mind […]
Ahh, Summer. As Summer in the Southern Hemisphere (where I live) draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on what seemed like one of the hottest summers in a long while. The weather became a constant topic. How hot will it be today? How many days over 40 degrees is that now? Will the […]

But first a story about Orthorexia: Which, if you look up this word, is defined as an extreme or excessive preoccupation with avoiding foods perceived […]
A juice revolution is born. It was late, getting close to midnight on a Sunday night. Time to settle in for a night of restful slumber. But, night owl that I am. I’ll just watch a little bit of television before I drift off.. or so I thought. But, I couldn’t switch off. I was compelled. Here was […]
Some of us just seem to age better than others. Why is it that some of us with the passing of time just get, well, old, while others manage to keep a youthfulness that belies their chronological age? I’m not talking about how many lines begin to trace the face, no, it’s the demeanour, the posture, the way […]
Dismantling old beliefs. Over my many years working in the beauty industry I have heard my fair share of beauty myths and misconceptions or just plain old media hype. Strangely, it takes a long time for a myth to be busted (if ever). Sometimes we just want to believe they’re true and even when all the evidence […]
