  • How to: Get into Glycolic Acid (and Get Glowy)

    Thu, 31 January 2013 2:19PM

    Apparently I missed the memo, but everyone and their pet turtles are giving up sugar. Hooray. All for it. Count me in. But not the natural stuff. I still like my fruit, and I’m not ashamed to say it, usually whilst eating it (much to chagrin of my mother.) But even though fruit sugars – AKA fructose… more

  • Talking Anti-Ageing with Top Derm (and ‘Topical Botox’ Investigator), Dr Joely Kaufman

    Wed, 5 December 2012 4:05PM

    I’m what you’d call a scaredy-cat when it comes to the more invasive style of anti-ageing. I tried Botox once, way back when it first launched in Australia, just to experience what I was writing about. And while it most definitely smoothed out my brow like nothing I’d seen seen since my teenage years, I… more

    We love this triple-whammy scrub! It even worked wonders on our sensitive skin. As well as smoothing and polishing to perfection, it leaves complexions feeling gorgeously pampered, thanks to oils of sweet almond, apricot and mango.

  • Red, bumpy arms getting you down? Not anymore…

    Mon, 30 January 2012 8:30AM

    The skin on the back of my arms is bumpy and a blotchy purple-red color. Fake tan helps, but is there anything else I can do? I know exactly what you’re talking about Veronica because I used to get the exact same thing on my arms. And so did my cousin. And my best friend. And… more

  • Fact: Your skin is missing out massively if you’re not using AHA’s.

    Mon, 28 November 2011 11:00AM

    If my skin were human, there’s no way I’d be friends with her. It sounds harsh, I know, but she’s caused me nothing but grief. All through my teen years, I battled with breakouts and blemishes and fast forward ten or so years to now and I’m still fighting the same battles, except now I’m… more
