I always make sure that I’m super comfy when travelling, which means I don’t usually make any kind of fashion statement. Pretty interesting to see what celebrities choose to wear when travelling. I do love the fold up ballet flats, and sneakers are always a great choice. I found some really gorgeous ballet flats at Cocorose London. What’s your ‘go to’ travel shoe?

Can I Get Rid Of Pigmentation?

pigmentation

I recently received the following questions regarding pigmentation, and Dr Alek Nikolic very kindly agreed to answer them for us.    “How can I tell if my pigmentation is caused by sun damage, is hormonal, or due to ageing? “   This is a difficult question to answer over the net as ideally one would like to take an adequate history, examine the skin and the pigmented lesions, and even do a VISIA skin analysis (computerised analysis that allows us to see below the skin surface) to determine the exact cause of the pigmentation and determine the best treatment approach.   Generally speaking the following are good guidelines for determining what caused our pigmentation to occur:   Melasma: Melasma is identified as patchy and connected brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discolorations, usually seen in women in the reproductive years. It typically appears on the upper cheeks, upper lip, forehead, and chinRead More

L’oreal Paris Revitalift Filler Renew Range Review

Revitalift-Range

I received the L’oreal Revitalift Filler Renew Range to review and have been using them everyday for the last two weeks. The range consists of the Hyaluronic Replumping Serum, the Filler Precision Eye Cream, the Anti-Ageing Day Replumping Care and the Anti-Ageing Night Replumping Care. In reviewing these products, I must first highlight that these are OTC (Over The Counter) products, which I don’t believe should be compared to doctor prescribed cosmeceuticals.  All products retail for R284.95,  available at Clicks and Dischem.   Hyaluronic Replumping Serum “This is not a Dermalogical Filler however, it will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and replump the look of skin contours.  This serum is 10x more concentrated with hyaluronic acid than the average L’Oreal Paris day cream” Pros: It contains hyaluronic acid, which is great for restoring moisture to your skin. I also absolutely love the innovative, fun packaging. It looks like a syringe whichRead More

It is well known that there are some ingredients hidden in processed food that we need to look out for. The same goes for ingredients hidden in beauty products.   South African distributor of Uber Natural Beauty, Karmen Fieldgate, offers these tips for consumers to look out for.   SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS TO LOOK OUT FOR  It is known that the skin is the body’s largest organ, and that it acts as a sponge, meaning that approximately 60% of what is put on is absorbed, affecting the health and well being of the body.   Through the application of products, we expose our skin, and body, to a large number of ingredients – many of which have not been tested for their long-term effects. Many of the products that we apply consist of ingredients that are toxic, without us even knowing.   Here is a list of ingredients to lookRead More

[Review] Skin Miles

  I am a big believer in shopping online— mostly because I am too busy to actually hit the shops and it is very convenient. But, I had no idea that skincare uniquely chosen for my specific skin issues, could also be ordered online.   Skin Miles offers you the chance to have a “consultation” with renowned aesthetic medical practitioner, Dr Alek Nikolic and then receive your products to your home.What a novel and fantastic idea!   It’s pretty simple—I filled out on online form about my skin, my major concerns and skin challenges as well as what I was looking for in products and which products I already was using. My main concerns this winter were dehydration, anti-ageing and pigmentation and I was also very anxious about not provoking a flare-up of my rosacea, which appears mostly in times of stress but can also be aggravated by products and foods.Read More
