  • How To: Use Retinol Safely

    Thu, 6 March 2014 3:00PM

    There are a few things I’m wary of: cheap mobile phone plans, spiders leggier than Miranda Kerr in a mini skirt, and retinol.

  • 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 wish I could hop in a time capsule and whiz back to my teenage times and tell my naughty little fifteen year old self to 1) not waste my time on any boy who spends his spare time watching Fashion TV (modeliser alert!), 2) put my hard-earned-working-at-Maccas money into gold bullions (and not Dotti),… more

    Wed, 12 September 2012 10:36AM

    The revolving door of beauty is in perpetual motion; as one new ‘miracle’ ingredient enters the market, another quietly leaves with its claims between its legs.
