Vodka and Aloe Vera facial toner DIY

I’m not a big fan of dry January, because I believe that everything good in life comes from maintaining a healthy balance rather than starving yourself to death or making big sacrifices.

O Jeju, a skincare heaven in Krakow

Recently, I found myself shopping in the Jewish quarter in Krakow.

Who says Watermelon is only good in Summer?  Sure, we all love a slice of Watermelon on a hot summer day (not alone as a prop for that Insta-worthy shot), but it can also make dry winter skin very happy. Watermelon Seed Oil (Scientific name: Citrullus lanatus), which is won by cold pressing sun-dried watermelon seeds, is probably the best a Watermelon has to offer.

Fuss-free Avocado moisturiser DIY

Keeome Hydration Therapy Mask review

Having returned from travelling Asia a short while ago, I was fascinated by how important it is for Vietnamese ladies to look after their skin. They treat their body and skin with great respect and skincare comes long before putting on makeup, so serves as a healthy prevention method before skin impurities or signs of ageing can build up.

Herbivore review

First of all: I absolutely adore what Herbivore and their natural products range stand for - helping people and environment, promoting holistic health and, in the light of recent events in the US, supporting minority groups.
