5 ways to keep pimples at bay
Our skin has its up and downs and on really bad days, we just want to hide under our blankets. And it can affect anyone – even stars with access to the top dermatologists in the world. Kendall Jenner addressed critics of her skin at the Golden Globes by saying “Never let that s— stop you.” New Zealand pop star Lorde has been opening up about her own “years and years and years”- long acne battle and is letting people know she doesn’t need any unsolicited advice, #thanksbutnothanks.

5 tips for clean, healthy pores
Do you know that the skin is the largest organ of our body and has millions of pores and follicles on it?

It is through these openings that sebum (oil) from the glands underneath your skin comes to the surface of our skin.
5 benefits of facial sheet masks
We all should wear masks. No, we are not talking about putting on that mask to please and impress others. Nor the 50 shades darker kind… unless you’re of that persuasion *ahem*blush* We are talking about facial sheet masks which are chock-full of essences and serums that give your skin a huge dose of nutrients and moisture! With such a wide array of affordable sheet masks available in the market, should you pay a little more for a better quality mask? Yes, and with good reason. Some cheaper masks made with materials such as paper and cotton lack the ability to hold moisture hence precious essence will evaporate from the mask quickly. Sheet masks made from biocellulose fabric perform better than other sheet masks as they adhere snugly to your skin contour ensuring 100% ingredient penetration.

But too much of a good thing can end up being bad. In fact, the black substance in blackheads has nothing to do with dirt and is simply a pore clogged with a bit of oil that’s open to the air – oxidation turns it black. While washing your face a couple of times a day may help loosen blackheads and unclog your pores, you should not do it too often.
Father’s Day Special
This Father’s Day, we are going to tell you why men need facials! Women swear by facials to get rid of the gunk in their pores and to achieve that silky, smooth complexion and younger-looking skin. But when it comes to men, they usually shun facials like the plague! Somehow, the sad excuse that “my soap can do the job just fine” has managed to survive past the millennia and into our 21st century. A little like cockroaches…
We all know that certain someone whose skin exudes flawless radiance we could only admire and envy from afar. Truth be told, we all have that glow potential—we just don’t necessarily know how to give our skin the best care it needs. While genetic factors may mean that our skin is predisposed to certain conditions like acne, pigmentation etc., we can still achieve healthy, glowing complexion when armed with the basic knowledge of making the right choices for our skin.
