    What is glycolic acid?

    Glycolic acid is part of the alpha-hydroxy acids’ category. Basically, it is a fruit-derived acid.

    How to wear red lipstick like a pro

    The red lipstick is a statement in itself, and a woman’s best friend, just like diamonds, and a good moisturiser.

The red lipstick can give you a sophisticated air and can make you radiate self-confidence. More than this, it has been scientifically proven that men find women wearing red lipstick more attractive.

    Travel size skincare and haircare – the complete guide

    You are traveling for a couple of days, and you don’t want to carry all your makeup and skincare products with you? Well, it’s only natural, and most of us avoid taking off on a holiday or a work trip with all the contents of the bathroom drawer. Fortunately, the travel size products have been specially designed to provide us with the same quality we are used to at home, but at a more affordable price and a smaller size.

    More than great for traveling, the travel size products are also fantastic when it comes to trying out a new product before committing to the full size (and price). You can get the travel size version of the product you like and test it thoroughly before making the decision for the full-size purchase.

    And there is another thing with the travel size products – they are just too adorable to resist them – small, delightful packages filled with so many promises! To help you make the most out of these little gems, we have put together a guide to travel size sk

    10 Skincare New Year Resolutions

    New Year, new beginnings! A great time to be grateful for what you have and plan for the future! A time to think about what you want to experience and what you want to change, what you want to achieve, and how. In other words, the New Year’s Resolutions! Here are ten ideas for your New Year’s Resolutions in skincare:

     

    1. A daily skincare routine

    This is more important than getting the latest, most expensive serum, and the benefits are amazing in the long run. Even if you are in your early 20s or your 50s, you need a daily skincare routine that you can commit to. It can be as simple as cleansing and hydration or more elaborate with cleanser, toner, serum, moisturising cream, eye cream, and so on. It can be once a day or twice a day. Consistency is the key here. Patience too! Don’t change skincare products after just a few applications (not unless they are not suitable for your skin type). Use the same products for at least 2 to 3 months before moving on to
