Elise Cook is a famous Australian blogger, currently living in South Australia after one year travelling around the country. She shares with us the benefits of changing to organic and natural beauty products. “For the past 18 months, I have been choosing organic / natural beauty products. A simple realisation – why, if I care about what I put IN my body, am I not considering what I’m putting ON it? I’ve met people who have done a huge overhaul, throwing everything away and replacing all their products at once, but for me that would have been a little extreme (financially – as it meant changing all my makeup over) so I did it gradually.
For the men who mentor us, show up and support, and who care for us. We love you. Treating the supportive male figures in our lives is special. Father’s Day is coming up in Australia, and this is a day to let our fathers know just how much we are thankful for them and how extraordinary they truly are. A day where we can honour our dads, grandfathers, or anyone who has stepped into those shoes of fatherhood. Showing the gratitude for all the love and support stretches further than just one day a year, but it’s lovely to be given the opportunity to show appreciation and adoration for everything they do for us. If like me, and you’re unable to convince your Dad to a pampering spa visit, try simply updating his skincare routine. Something foolproof, quick and effortless.

To makeup or not to makeup? It’s totally up to you! Our relationship to makeup is personal – it can change over time or stay consistent for decades. Some women prefer neutrals, while others experiment with vibrant colours. Our makeup routine can reflect how we are feeling, be used to change how we feel or be an outlet for creativity. You can love wearing makeup daily or only on special occasions – either way, we want you to LOVE your skin, how it feels and how it looks in the mirror. We celebrate skin with makeup on it, and skin without. We want you to feel great when you are all made up for an event, and when you are bare-faced and casually dressed. We love bright lipstick with old jeans, and cocktail dresses with barely-there makeup. In our world – anything goes. look #1: BEAUTY This could be for home only, a NYE party or heading off to yoga.

The issue of genetically modified food has people concerned for many reasons. GMO, “genetically modified organisms”, basically means that they have been created scientifically in a laboratory using genetic-modification techniques. Scientists, consumer and environmental groups have lobbied against genetic interference of our food for health and environmental reasons. While there are regulations about GMO foods in many countries, they don’t apply to cosmetics and skin care products. We are aware of people’s concern regarding GMO ingredients cosmetics affecting human health. Even if cosmetics are only applied to our body, we all know that skin is the largest organ in the body. To date, there is no scientific evidence that GMO ingredients used in cosmetics are unsafe, but still we want to give peace of mind to our customers.
Christophe Robin is a celebrity colorist & Founder of “Christophe Robin haircare“, dedicated to sensitive and color-treated hair, using natural ingredients. To boost the external action of hair hydration, Christophe Robin shares his recipe gorged in vitamins, minerals and nutrients to strengthen the hair and add shine. “Why is my hair dull, lifeless and lacking elasticity?”, “Why is my hair static?” “Why does it inflate at the slightest sign of humidity?”. These are all signs of the same underlying cause: hair dehydration. Hair needs hydration, just like skin does. Wind, cold weather, sun and friction caused by hats or scarves are all factors contributing to hair’s dryness on a daily basis.
Life is full-on in 2019. We see it every day in the news, there’s poverty, wars, inequality, climate change, deforestation, plastic in our oceans. If I see one more picture of a turtle swimming in plastic bags… we are all suffering from compassion overload! There are so many things wrong with society that we wish we could change, that sometimes it feels easier to just switch off and forget. While things can feel overwhelming, there is also so much hope. We can’t fight every battle single-handedly, but as humans and consumers – we have more power than we know. All around us, our world is changing for the better. Every day people have made new systems, creations, businesses and laws that mean we are treating each other, our planet and animals BETTER. There are so many ways to put our money to good causes, ethical brands, and solutions that HELP.

We’re glad it’s 2019 and men can take care of their skin, spend a little money on products that make them look and feel good, and also – prevent damage from sun exposure, pollution and the weather.

The in-between seasons can affect skin just as much as winter and summer. The only difference is, sometimes we forget this! When it’s not icy cold of blazing hot, we can feel like our skin is taken care of as its not assaulted by the elements in extreme ways. We can relax a little in our skin routine and beauty rituals. We are all about a fuss-free lifestyle, but our skin needs our attention all year round. In spring and autumn/fall, we still need to nourish our skin as it recovers from what has just been and gets ready for the season ahead. In fact, often the prep work we do at these times can see our skin through a snowy winter or a humid summer. You may not need an intensive night cream or lip treatment in these months, but an all-purpose facial oil is perfect for lighter weather.
