Celebrate These Truly Inspirational Females On International Women’s Day

This International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8th, 2021 we are shining a light on some truly inspirational females. Read the stories behind their incredibly successful brands and missions. Learn what spurred these women on to become the inspirational women of 2021 and why they should be celebrated on International Women’s Day.

1. This Women’s Day We Love Leanne Pero, Founder of Black Women Rising, www.theleanneperofoundation.com

This International Women’s Day we can celebrate females like Leanne who have gone above and beyond to help others. At 30-years-old, Leanne discovered she had breast cancer. It soon became clear how little knowledge there was amongst the WOC community. Worse still, the number of negative reactions was alarming.

In response to this, Leanne set up her own charity, The Leanne Pero Foundation and the Black Women Rising Project. Dedicated to helping BAME cancer patients and survivors, these charities are a huge success. Her core mission is helping BAME women by educating and drawing opportunities. The idea is for BAME women to connect and talk without feeling shame, and to enable them to feel empowered to succeed.

2. Louise Wilkins is Another Women’s Day Star: Founder of No. 1 Illume Silk Exfoliating Glove, £15.99, www.no1illume.com

Accountant, Louise Wilkins is another of our International Women’s Day favourites. She found a solution to an ongoing skincare problem and turned it into a successful business. Louise created the 100% silk viscose exfoliating gloves in 2020. They proved to be extremely effective in treating certain skin concerns. Louise knew that people everywhere would benefit from such a fabulous product.

Silk is incredibly gentle and kind to the skin. It is also textured and therefore provides deep exfoliation. The result is transformative. Dead skin cells are removed, revealing skin that is beautifully smooth and rose petal soft!

We tried the No.1 Illume Exfoliating Silk Gloves. Should you suffer from bumpy, rough skin, these gloves are a must-buy. Consider them as the #1 tool for treating this skin concern. You will be amazed. No.1 Illume Exfoliating Silk Gloves are priced at £15.99 and are available to buy at www.no1illume.com

3. Fides Baldsberger, Owner and CEO of Rubis is a True Boss. Buy the Slanted Rubis Tweezer, £21.50, at www.cultbeauty.co.uk

This woman is a literal superhero and definitely deserves recognition for International Women’s Day. Fides decided to run Rubis (a small tweezer company) following her father’s death. Very quickly, she had set up a sales and marketing department and brought in new customers. Fides improved the company’s efficiency, created new products and ensured a factory was built.

During that time, there were no high-quality cosmetic, precise tweezers. Fides changed all of that. She transformed the company into a global business. Today, her tweezers are considered to be THE BEST. She has even been named Entrepreneur of the Year, twice! That’s some feat.

4. An International Business Icon: Rosie Khandwala, Founder of Sugar Coated, Sugar Coated Waxing Pack, £20, www.sugarcoatedhairremoval.com

Rosie founder and successful business owner

Another lady who made it all happen is Rosie. She grew up in Tanzania where the only form of hair removal was sugar waxing. Upon moving to the UK, she realised this just wasn’t an available option. Seeing a gap in the market, Rosie took action. She decided to make and sell her own. Before long, the Body Shop became a buyer where Renee Zellweger discovered it and became a fan! Not bad.

Following this, Rosie further improved the wax and began her own company, Sugar Coated. This was the first wax of its kind to not include citric acid. In an era of clean living, Sugar Coated thrived. It is now a much sought-after product. Her 100% natural wax contains pure sugar syrup and water. It is highly effective, gentle on the skin and biodegradable, too.  Rosie is a pioneer for ethical beauty. Her sugar wax is available to buy online at Feel Unique and on her website, www.sugarcoatedhairremoval.com.

5. Hannah Chapman, Founder of Ava May Aromas Proves you can Achieve Your Dreams. Buy the Wax Melt Heart Burner, £10, at www.avamayaromas.com

Credit: Ava May Aromas

Introducing an inspirational female we can all learn from. At just 25 years-old, Hannah Chapman owns a multi-million-pound wax melt and candle business, named Ava May Aromas. Like all great skyrocketing businesses, Hannah began the wax melt company from her parents’ kitchen.

Furthermore, she did it without any financial help whatsoever. Against advice, Hannah founded and persevered with the wax melt business. The lady was right because the company has sold over half a billion wax melts in under 2 years! Additionally, she employs over twenty people.

Hats off to these fabulous and truly inspirational ladies on International Women’s Day!

TikTok’s Stats Show The Predicted Beauty Trends Already In High Demand

Bold eye colours, laminated eyebrows, fake freckles and flowery hair accessories are some of the key beauty trends predicted for 2021. Some predictions are already in high demand. It may not yet be the end of January, but beauty fans don’t let the grass grow under their feet. This is something that much-loved vegan self-tanner company, Tanologist’s has proved. After conducting a study to discover the most searched for beauty treatments on TikTok, they found out which beauty treatments are already firm favourites.

It just goes to reconfirm the fact that no matter what the situation or how dark things may be, the need for some feel-good makeup will remain strong.

Tanologist discovered that TikTok’s Top Beauty Searches Were:

Laminated Eyebrows

Fake Freckles

Fox Eye Makeup

In a world where mask-wearing and Zoom meetings are a given, people are focusing on making their eyes look incredible. Unsurprisingly, mask usage has meant a lower need for blemish stickers (because let’s face it no one will see them), and colour correctors.

Highest Demand: Laminated Eyebrows

TikToks Stats show predicted beauty trends already in high demand

Move over microblading, its time for laminated brows to have their moment. Laminated brows are much sought-after. The treatment achieves a feathery, full and perfectly in place look. This procedure is ideal for those with a lot of hair, as it achieves immaculately defined and flawless eyebrows that stay put for up to eight weeks. Moreover, should you have back-to-back meetings, this cosmetic treatment means you will have one less thing to worry about. No more horror realisations that you really should’ve checked your eyebrows before joining the group!  Your brows will look like perfection!

High Demand: Fox Eye Makeup

Another trend in high demand is to create the look of enhanced elongated eyes (like a fox). The creation involves the use of lots of eyeliner, fake lashes and a smoky shadow finish. Some shave off the end of their brows in order to draw on a straighter brow; thus, further emulating the fox-eye appearance. We love this look – it is simply beautiful. At a time when there’s so much gloom, playing around with makeup and having fun is a great way to de-stress for a while.

Fake Freckles Stay Popular

The fake freckles trend has been in the beauty limelight for some time. They are another way to have a little fun and mix things up a bit. To tap into this viral beauty trend, check out Missguided’s Frecks Appeal Freckle Pen, £8, www.missguided.co.uk.

Credit: Tanologist

A huge thanks to this eye-opening research conducted by Tanologist. One thing that never goes out of style is a glowing tan. A great self-tan will work miracles in boosting confidence and mood; thus, it will always be in high demand. We’re smitten with Tanologist’s Self-Tan Drops Light (For Face and Body), £14.99, www.tanologist.com.

The tan drops are incredibly easy to use, totally customisable and achieve a flawless finish. The more drops added, the deeper the tan. It’s that simple. This little beauty of a product is available in 3 shades: Light Glow, Medium Tan and Dark Bronze. Ideal for tanning newcomers or experienced tanners – the results are impeccable every time!

From Commercial To Inspirational: How To Make Valentine’s Day Count

Awareness of its commercial focus doesn’t prevent us from enjoying Valentine’s Day. Indulging each other with Valentine’s gifts is a gorgeous thing to do. However, our unity over globally-felt loneliness means that many need some inspirational support. Luckily, Valentine’s Day is around the corner, bringing with it an opportunity to really help. Read on to discover ways you can make this Valentine’s Day count.

Never underestimate the power of a smile. This may sound cheesy, but some people see no one except, perhaps a stranger such as you as they walk down the road. When you pass by, say hello and smile. It’s all about the little things.

Hopefully, most people will read this and think ‘well that’s obvious’. However, many do not. It is very easy to light a fire of hate on social media and watch your malevolence spread faster than the new variant. Lies are suddenly fact. Some don’t realise the impact this has on the person in the firing line. They don’t think they are to blame for suicide or for their family’s distress. Don’t be unkind. Think twice before you hit tag, abuse and post. Things are not always the way they seem and it’s far too easy to destroy a life. Let’s all try to be a little kinder on Valentine’s Day and beyond.

Discover The Best Exfoliator for Your Skin Type

Exfoliation is an essential process in maintaining good skincare – but with such a variety of exfoliators on offer, which one should you use? From AHAs to BHAs, and a whole myriad in-between, confusion is an understatement. Not only that, get it wrong and your skin will NOT be pleased. To save you stress, time and wasted money, we have selected the very best chemical exfoliators to suit every skin type and age.

1.For Acne/Blemish-Prone Skin (Oily), Exfoliate with Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, £9 (30ml), www.paulaschoice.co.uk

Discover the best chemical based exfoliator for your skin type
L A Beauty

Those with acne or blemish-prone skin should look for products that contain salicylic acid. Not only does the little miracle worker effectively remove dead skin from outside and within pores, but it also comes with much-needed soothing properties and will thwart further breakouts.

We love this impressive exfoliator. Other ingredients include green tea extract (renowned for its antioxidant-rich composition) and methyl propanediol, which acts like a straw to suck in all other ingredients. You will love how hydrated your skin feels afterwards. The results truly are remarkable This exfoliant is suitable for combination/oily skin types.

2. Combination Skin Types Try: Caudalie Glycolic Peel, £18.62, www.amazon.co.uk

Combination skin types should veer towards a glycolic (plant-based) acid, as it can be applied to both dry and oily areas without issue. Caudalie’s Peel is incredibly gentle, yet unbelievably effective. Combining grape-sourced viniferine brimming with antioxidants, this peel repairs, renews and resurfaces to a happy-faced standard. You will love it!

People with dry skin should avoid alcohol-based products like the plague (or corona). Also, you need to look for ingredients that offer high moisturising properties (such as ceramides). Dry skin and mature skin types should only exfoliate once per week. We love Japanese brand Tatcha’s exfoliator. The rice bran and papaya extract boast an array of amino-acid soldiers that tackle exfoliation with ease. This is a gentle and natural process of buffing away dead skin cells, with incredible results. Your complexion will radiate healthy luminosity and a velvety touch.

Once you have that you will automatically magnetise others towards you. Just make sure you only attract a good guy (maybe grab a black tourmaline crystal too).

Iconic tanning brand, St. Moriz has solved our tanning woes, guaranteeing to effortlessly redefine your reflection.Bypassing all the usual tanning obstacles, this may just achieve the best self-tan…in the world!

A Clear Spray Tan in a Can

The multi-award-winning brand launched the Spray Tan in a Can. Within their Advanced Pro Formula Range, this vegan self-tanner is every bit as good as we had hoped. The innovative 360-degree spray design removes any concerns over not achieving a streak-free finish. This makes a welcome change to the frequently experienced outcome. Y’know the one – when a patchy tan begins to materialise, but it’s too late to do anything about it! If you love to self-tan but feel a tad hesitant at the possibility of a looming disaster, worry no more. This will quickly become an absolute necessity in your tanning arsenal. We tried it and with open-mouthed amazement, fell madly in love! Read on:

What Makes St. Moriz Spray Tan in a Can so Special?

Short answer: it works. You are looking at complete tanning perfection – in a can.

Spray Tan in a Can Features:

A Golden Glow

St. Moriz Spray Tan in a Can sprays on as a clear mist and develops to provide the skin with an enviable golden glow. This is an ultimate mood boost for those who are mourning the loss of a vacay. Achieving a golden bronze hue that looks so natural you may get a knock on the door from the local rozzers for flouting lockdown rules.

Gone are the days when applying a self-tan means plastic sheet proofing the room. The mess and hassle-free design offer a 360-degree spray so no area will be missed.

Fast Drying

Another reason we love St. Moriz’s Spray Tan in a Can is its drying time. It literally takes a matter of minutes to develop and dry (big bonus points here). You do not need to rub in the formula. Simply spray on the mist, allow to dry et voila!

Development Time

The tan begins to develop from one hour and continues to build for up to eight hours.

Biscuit-Free Fragrance

You will be very relieved to know that the St. Moriz tan does not reek like a biscuit factory. Instead, you can enjoy their ‘mood-enhancing’ fragrance Happy days.

Vegan

St. Moriz Advanced Pro Range offers vegan-friendly formulas. When we are in the midst of Veganuary and looking for healthier and more ethical alternatives, this is hugely important.

Non-Transferable

This awesome formula has yet another little trick up its sleeve – it will not transfer onto your clothes. Phew.

St. Moriz Spray Tan in a Can is priced at £7.75 (150ml) and available from www.feelunique.com.

For optimal results use in conjunction with the St. Moriz Exfoliating Skin Primer, £3.95, www.feelunique.com (for use the day before). Also, St. Moriz Tan Enhancer, £3.95 (200ml), www.feelunique.com. This will keep your gorgeous, tanned glow at max for longer.

St Moriz Top Tips:

For problematic areas such as ankles, elbows, knees and wrists, first, apply the St. Moriz Moisturising Tan Enhancer. This will ensure even coverage.

Always exfoliate the day before you intend to self-tan

Moisturise regularly

Shave at least 24 hours prior to application

Shake the Spray Tan in a Can before use.

To apply, spray in a light and even fashion, in a continuous sweeping motion. St. Moriz recommends keeping the spray 15-30cm from the face and body.

Do not wash your body whilst your tan is developing.

Avoid spraying near the eyes (obvs.).

Maintain your tan for longer with the St. Moriz Tan Enhancer

Take A Look At The Future Of Skin Rejuvenation: Uvence

Right now, people everywhere are crying over cancelled skin rejuvenation treatments. Although annoying, it has given us the breathing space to discover something far better. This revolutionary skin rejuvenation procedure is called Uvence. Take a look at the biggest advancement in cosmetic treatments, in well over a decade. The natural anti-aging procedure delivers incredible personalised and long-term results. Uvence is set to sweep the globe and become the future #1 skin rejuvenation treatment.

Do not underestimate the genius of Uvence’s capabilities. Offering an innovative targeted treatment, it is 100% natural and has shown unbelievable effectiveness. But the beauty doesn’t end there. This innovative procedure employs cryopreservation. Basically, the restorative formulas can be kept long-term, allowing for further treatments to be administered.

Uvence uses your skin’s own tissue to provide regenerative abilities. It greatly improves the overall appearance of your complexion. Although it is not a magic wand that thwarts aging forevermore – you can consider Uvence as the next best thing. Look at this cosmetic treatment as giving your skin an upgrade and then putting time into slow-mo. Sign me up!

Uvence Facts / The Science-y Bit

Credit: Uvence

Uvence utilises a client’s own tissue which is purified to amplify the regenerative properties. The outcome is a ‘Super Enriched Tissue’ with no inflammatory properties. This recalibrated tissue is readministered (injected) into areas of concern. Think of it as the ultimate cosmetic injectable!

What Makes Uvence Such a Game-Changer?

Basically, Uvence changes everything for the future of cosmetic procedures. It means that clinicians can consistently use nano-fat injections to deliver remarkable results.

Uvence technology enables a person’s own tissue to be much-improved and bio-remodelled, in a unique and totally natural way.

Which Areas Can Uvence Address?

Uvence can dramatically improve the look of the face, neck, decolletage and even the hands!

Will it Affect Botox or Filler Treatments?

Not at all! In fact, as this is totally natural, the results will be complementary to any cosmetic treatments you may undergo.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

The number of treatments will differ according to a patient’s needs. However, significant improvement is noted even after the first treatment. The skin continues to improve over the course of several months.

For How Long Can a Patient’s Tissue be Stored?

Tissue can be stored for up to 5 years! Consequently, a patient can have repeatedly great results, with a minimal fuss.

What About the Downtime?

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic. This means very little downtime is needed. Afterwards, the patient can have the treatment and return to work if they so wish.

The Weirdest Things People Have Woken Up With

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve woken up with?

There is nothing better than laughing in the face of adversity to reduce the impact of stressful times – and the weirder or more bizarre something is, the funnier it becomes. With this in mind, online hybrid mattress retailer, OTTY, conducted their own research. The mission was to pull back the covers on peoples’ strange experiences. Posting the question, “What’s the weirdest thing you have woken up with?” OTTY received a surge of crazy replies. Let’s take a look at some of the weirdest bedroom revelations.

1.Who Let the Dogs Out?

It is not unusual for the family pet to snuggle up on your bed – but what about waking up to find yourself cosied up to a stranger’s dog? This is exactly what happened to two respondents. One claimed that somehow, the dog was actually in his sleeping bag and he had no idea whose dog this was or how it got there.

2.Pheasant Life

The survey uncovered one man’s scary reality. The man from the Yorkshire/Humber region was startled (obvs.) when he awoke to a brace of pheasants sharing his bed. Okay…

3.The Old ‘Stealing the Traffic Cone’ Trick

Stealing a traffic cone in a drunken stupor seems to have become a rite of passage for UK youths – it’s THAT common. It’s no wonder, then, that this along with construction signs made their way onto the list (and into their beds). However, one man went above and beyond, somehow managing to bring home an actual traffic light, without being stopped! He then tucked it in with him for a cosy sleep!

4.A Solid Winner

The Scots are known for their wild nights of hardcore drinking – and this particular response well and truly cements this theory. A respondent from Scotland claims he woke up with his ‘shoes completely encased in concrete’. He must have lived fairly near to the construction site as he was able to return home and to his not-so-comfy slumber.

Conclusion

Review Of Kate Somerville Transformative Turnaround Firm & Brighten

Should you be a fan of beauty and transformative skincare, you may have heard of world-renowned skincare expert, Kate Somerville. Her exclusive clinic, the Skin Health Clinic, can be found in Hollywood. Due to Kate’s innovative and highly effective products and bespoke treatments, her popularity continues to soar. Now she has a long list of celebrity clients including Kate Hudson, Eva Mendes and Demi Moore.

Kate Somerville offers a range of fantastic products. Today we are reviewing her iconic and totally fabulous Transformative Turnaround Cream, Firm & Brighten.

About Kate Somerville’s Transformative Turnaround Cream, Firm & Brighten, £77 (50ml), www.katesomerville.co.uk

kate somerville transformative moisturiser
L A Beauty

Ever since its launch, this luxurious overnight moisturiser has been flying off the shelves. The best-selling cream contains two key skincare ingredients, retinol and vitamin C. These components are proven to offer an array of anti-aging and skin-nourishing abilities, both immediately and long-term.

The reason this is such a sought-after night moisturiser is due to its outstanding brightening, firming and regenerative properties – and the fact that it is a lazy girl’s dream. You simply need to apply the magical formula and go to sleep. The star ingredients get together to beautify your complexion whilst you are busy dreaming about Thor!

Retinol

Retinol is a vital anti-aging component, but it is important to use a good source. The Transformative Turnaround Cream is great for retinol newbies as it is unlikely to cause noticeable dryness. For people in their twenties, Kate Somerville’s advice is to apply the moisturiser 1-2 times per week. For thirty-somethings’ use 3 times per week, and so on. However, it is important to always listen to your skin. Should your complexion seem irritated, reduce accordingly.

Kate Somerville and her team combined a powerful blend of pure retinol within this moisturiser. The result is a faster cell turnover, reduction of discolouration/pigmentation. Furthermore, you will notice significantly fewer fine lines.

Vitamin C

Another superhero component, vitamin C, is shown to greatly brighten and smooth the skin. This amazing cream includes pure vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Provided in a stabilised clinical formulation, it delivers incredible firming and softening results. The outcome is a complexion of sheer radiance.

Hyaluronic Acid

Pretty much everyone is aware of the secret skincare weapon, hyaluronic acid. This is included due to its ability to lock in moisture; thus, achieving a firmer and plumper complexion.

Wild Gooseberry Extract

Credit: Kate Somerville

Wild gooseberry extract is overflowing with antioxidants, ensuring your skin is thoroughly protected from free radical damage. Furthermore, the incredible skin-soothing properties diminish redness and signs of sensitivity.

The scent of the moisturiser itself is all-empowering. Should you love oranges, this zesty aroma will be right up your street. As you apply the luxurious treatment you just know it is going to be something special – and you won’t be wrong!

Conclusion

We applied the cream twice per week for several weeks. During this time skin showed a noticeable improvement. The texture and overall appearance are notable.

This moisturiser is definitely worth the investment for those concerned with aging or discolouration. However, to continue experiencing great results, it should be incorporated into your night-time routine and used over time.

We love this overnight moisturiser. It is great for those new to retinol and for those who want simple, yet effective results without the faff!

You can still have a laugh with your nearest and dearest – just grab your laptop and meet for some friendly banter and drinks (at a distance). The good thing about this is at least if the convo gets boring you can ‘lose connection’ without losing a friendship.

4.Karaoke

Picking up a cheap mic and conducting a sing-a-thon karaoke with your family is loads of fun. Just remember that if its particularly loud, you still have to bypass your neighbours in the morning. Another time the 2m rule is advantageous.

5.Fireworks

Okay, you can either watch the firework celebrations on the TV or you can buy a few and set them off in your back yard (with safety measures in place obvs). Second thoughts, maybe the tele is a better option…(thinking of the neighbours’ fence).

6.Candles: Try ESPA Energising Candle, £35, www.espaskincare.com

About Vichy Liftactiv Micro Hyalu Eye Patches

We all know hyaluronic acid’s star anti-aging qualities. The ingredient is proven to plump and rejuvenate the skin. Vichy has harnessed the power of the key component and taken it up several notches, offering remarkable skin-transformative abilities. By using microneedle technology, each patch consists of 160 micro-cones that work to gently dissolve into the skin. This provides a targeted treatment, delivering 100% hyaluronic acid with precision.

As you will see from the pictures below, the results demonstrate a dramatic improvement to the entire eye area. The patches are designed to tackle pesky crow’s feet, lines, wrinkles and general puffiness – and wow, we are impressed.

These outstanding patches should be used as a weekly added step to your skincare routine. Included in the formula is hyaluronic acid and Vichy Mineralizing Water.
