  • How to: Be a Beauty Clean-Freak

    Mon, 3 September 2012 11:11AM

    It’s spring-clean time! Here’s how to take the beauty broom to yourself and polish up your look… The Super-Cleanse. For spanking-clean skin, you may need to do a pre-cleanse. You could use a product specifically formulated to do this (try Dermalogica PreCleanse, $65.50, Dermalogica), or even just a cleansing oil, which is fabulous at dissolving heavy… more

  • What I Know About … Acne Scars

    Sun, 29 July 2012 12:28PM

    For the majority of my teen years, I was relatively acne-free. Once I turned 18, I thought I’d managed to avoid the whole pimply business. Hooray! Then, at around 21, it began. Joy. And it wasn’t just a spot here and there. I’m talking angry, red acne that would cause well-meaning strangers to give me advice… more

  • Ancient Skincare Ingredients That Stand The Test Of Time

    Wed, 13 June 2012 4:40PM

    The beauty industry is saturated with ‘new’ and ‘improved’ technology, treatments, products and procedures. But digging deeper into the past – and the power of natural remedies and ingredients followed by our ancestors – may hold the key to what’s best for you and your skin. “One of the most well known historic beauty regimes was… more

  • “What’s the Best Beauty Advice You’ve Ever Received?”

    Wed, 25 April 2012 8:45AM

    What an arduous question. How can a gal pluck just one pearl of beauty wisdom from her valued life-long collection? A dilly of a pickle that had me procrastinating for days. Surely eyebrow grooming must warrant a mention. And using bronzer to contour not colour must rank up there, too. But my gut kept reminding me of… more

  • It’s Not “Good-Bye”, Just “See You Very Soon” …

    Mon, 23 April 2012 11:07AM

    Over the past two months, since I started what I can only call my dream job, I’ve nattered on at you about my various obsessions and paranoias and theories (in between much beauty talk, of course). And, as blogging tends to go, things have gotten quite personal; my partner and friends and parents have begun… more

  • To Peel or Not to Peel …

    Mon, 16 April 2012 4:00PM

    Skin experts are divided on the issue of facial peels, the professional treatment that chemically – as opposed to physically – exfoliates skin, usually due to a combination of hydroxy acids. Some believe them to be unnecessarily harsh on the complexion, or outdated by new laser technology; yet others insist there is no better way… more

  • How to: hold onto your summer glow

    Thu, 8 March 2012 3:23PM

    If matte foundation and berry lipstick just aren’t your thing, you’ll be glad to know that makeup artists are increasingly saying that beauty no longer sticks to seasonal boundaries. What that means: even though we’re heading into the doom and gloom of winter, you and your face can pretend it’s summer all year round. And… more

  • AHA vs BHA

    Tue, 23 September 2008 3:00PM

    Can you please explain the difference between AHAs and BHAs? Sure can. BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) such as salicylic acid are closely related to AHAs (or Alpha Hydroxy Acids) but they operate in slightly different ways. AHAs are derived from mostly natural sources such as sugar cane, fruit and milk and are used for re-texturising, stimulating collagen… more
