    Gifts for him under $50

    Until recently, men were not overly concerned with issues considered exclusively feminine such as skincare. Fortunately, things have changed with time, and today they are more and more interested in their appearance, including skin and hair care. The truth is that a daily skin routine can lead to a healthy, attractive complexion for both women and men alike. Now we have products designed especially for men that can make great gifts (in case you were looking for something to surprise your significant other, father, son, or any other important man in your life).

    It is a well-known fact that a man’s skin is different – stronger, more resistant to the damaging influences of the external factors, and also producing more sebum. It is also true that men’s skin tends to age slower than women’s skin; the wrinkles become visible often no sooner than 35 years old. However, with the natural aging process, the skin loses the capacity to retain hydration, and the wrinkles become more and mor

    Best skincare routine for your 30s

    Skincare is an essential step to maintain your beauty and glowing complexion for as long as possible. The care and interest you show to your skin will reflect on your face after decades. The skin is like a business card displaying information about ourselves, our lifestyle, and the things we care about.

    Each age has its beauty and benefits. Most women start a beauty routine as early as in their 20s while others only feel the need to do so after reaching their 30s. And each woman develops a daily routine that is suitable for her age, lifestyle, and time she has available. Generally speaking, we can’t talk about a universally valid age-related skincare routine. However, there are general rules that should be considered when it comes to taking care of your skin in your 30s. 

    Cellular renewal starts to slow down once we reach our 30s, so the skin might start looking a bit tired and dull. Fine line and wrinkles might start to occur, especially the ones known as expression w

    Spring Skin Care Tips for Glowing Legs

    Spring is almost upon us! Are you already thinking about the summer wardrobe, all those dresses and skirts you plan to wear? Before going shopping, you might want to consider a spring skincare routine to get glowing legs and feet!

    With a little love and care, your legs will be ready for summer in no time!

    1. Exfoliate with care

    During winter we tend to wear trousers and warm clothes, so the skin accumulates plenty of dead cells that give it an unpleasant texture. This is the reason why spring is the perfect time to gently exfoliate the whole body. A dry brush is an excellent idea if you want to revitalize the skin on the legs. Using the dry brush before your shower for a few weeks can considerably improve the feel of the skin on your legs. More than this, it will help you get rid of the dead cells. While you shower, you can also use a scrub to exfoliate the whole body. This scrub can be using all-natural ingredients that you find around

    Alpha-H Review: Vitamin B

    Vitamin B has been gaining momentum in the beauty industry for some time now. In particular, Nicotinamide, a derivative of Vitamin B3 (Niacin), because of its proven ability to strengthen the epidermis which allows for higher and longer moisture retention. Vitamin B3 in skincare helps to achieve softer, smoother skin with less dryness, working to also combat fine lines.  

    Alpha-H’s latest innovation is their Vitamin B Serum with Copper Tripeptide. Don’t be fooled though… this super serum contains a powerful combination of Ferulic Acid, Copper Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid blended with Vitamin B3 and B5 in a silky serum to bring radiance to even the most devitalised skin to find out what all the fuss is about. I road-tested the Vitamin B serum in the morning and evening before applying my moisturiser for 7-days and honestly, I was amazed at the results!  

    You only need 2-3 drops of the Vitamin B serum each morning, meaning that a little of this serum, truly

    Dermalogica Review: Phyto Replenish Oil

    I’ve always believed there was no such thing as a non-oily facial oil… until now! Dermalogica’s latest innovation in treatment oils has been formulated to give your dull, tired skin an all-day dewy glow. Although it may seem that Dermalogica is a late-comer in the facial oil party, the truth is they were pioneers in the early days with their now cult-status PreCleanse.  

    My skin is normal to combination, and oily skincare products are usually not my friend. The fear of breakouts and a high-shine are at the forefront of my skincare and makeup decisions… and a facial-oil would generally be at the bottom of my list, making this very interesting.  

    Unlike many other facial oils, you’ll find the Phyto Replenish Oil to be feather-light, and from the moment I applied it to my skin, it rapidly absorbed. To apply, I tipped the glass bottle upside down to release 4-6 drops into my palm, before pressing the oil into my forehead, cheeks and chin.
