  • How to: Pack an On-The-Go Beauty SOS Kit

    Wed, 17 September 2014 5:15PM

    I realised, as I was driving to work the other day, that I do a good chunk of my beauty routine in my car (while said car is stationary, of course; please don’t call the police on me). And that over time I’ve amassed for myself quite the beauty SOS stash in my glove box…. more

  • Top 8 Top-to-Toe Beauty Oils

    Thu, 19 June 2014 4:00PM

    Like the delightful Emma Stone, I love to slather my face and body in oil. Unlike Emma, however, I can’t quite stomach using the same oil I dip my bread into.

  • PRIMPED Round Table: Icky, Sneaky Beauty Habits

    Wed, 14 November 2012 2:01PM

    I feel like it’s part of my job to turn up to work looking half decent. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t blow-dry and straighten my hair everyday, or coat myself in layers of fake tan (unless it’s for dancing, but I’ll talk more about that soon), but I always try to make sure I… more

  • Care for your cuticles

    Tue, 21 December 2010 6:25AM

    I have always had terrible cuticles – dry, sharp, peeling, torn, etc. I’ve tried using solar oil and hand cream and sleeping in cotton gloves but nothing seems to help. How do I heal my cuticles? Cuticles protect the area between the skin and the nail from infection, thus it is soooo important to care for… more
