OIL: WHY YOU NEED IT

The best way to think of facial oil is as a turbo boost for your existing routine. They’re concentrated products, so they’re ideal if you’re looking to problem-solve something specific like ageing, post-shave damage, dehydration, etc.

Oil also has a much smaller molecular structure than a cream, which means it’s going to penetrate deeper into the skin and hence more likely to do something worthwhile at a cellular level.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a rich and luxurious blend of essential oils and botanicals including lavender oil, evening primrose oil and olive-derived squalane, is designed to enhance your skin’s natural nightly recovery process, restoring tone and vitality.

It’s also not overly scented and surprisingly – doesn’t leave skin looking oily.

A SCENT OF ADVENTURE

HUGO Parfums unveils the next chapter of its #YourTimeIsNow campaign with a new limited edition scent – HUGO Urban Journey – a refreshingly energizing, woody and aromatic take on its original scent Hugo for Men.

Loaded with uplifting floral and green notes, Urban Journey first smells modern, clean and invigorating before intensifying with the aromatic and gritty notes of black tea. Warm and woody Guaiac wood and sandalwood complete the scent giving it a refined and confident finish. The juice is captured in HUGO’s iconic, minimalist flask-shaped bottle, this time with a unique concrete-like finish.

With every spray you’ll be inspired to get out there and find adventure – even in your own city!

Fashion: DIESEL | IRONIC NEW SUMMER CAMPAIGN

Written by | Found in: Fashion News | Posted on: 9 Jul 2018 - 3:29 pm

READY TO UNWEAR

Here’s something to get you through the gloom of winter – Diesel recently announced the debut of its latest summer campaign, titled “Ready To Unwear”, which promotes the idea that, during the summer, less equals more.

The thinking behind this ironic moniker, inverting the common fashion industry phrase of “ready to wear” – is that summer’s best memories are often experienced in varying degrees of undress. The campaign also celebrates and promotes anti-conformity and a personal choice to never ride the tide, to put something on, but not be afraid to take it off either.

Subverting the norm, the new Diesel “Ready to Unwear” campaign is the ironic celebration that less is more. Much more!

TREAT YOUR BEARD RIGHT

With the cold weather now in full force it’s time to protect your facial hair. As the seasons change bringing about new environmental conditions, so do our beards. Winter months tend to bring lower humidity and freezing cold winds, which tends to dry out the beard and skin, weaken the hairs and turn your beard into a mess if you don’t look after it.

These grooming tips will help you stay on top of your beard care game in order to ensure it stays gloriously glossy through the colder months.

Fashion: H&M ANNOUNCES MOSCHINO COLLABORATION

  • HMXMOSCHINO

#HMxMOSCHINO

In their long history of designer collaborations, H&M hasn’t really missed a beat. The Swedish giant’s new designer collaboration is with the Italian luxury house Moschino, headed by highflier, Jeremy Scott.

The collection includes womenswear and menswear, as well as a few other as-yet-to-be-divulged components. “There’s a silver sequined parka dress,” says Scott. “Denim pieces are all twisted into something else. Puffers and jackets are reconfigured into cropped things or double-long things. There’s a sportswear-with-evening kind of feeling, like a hockey jersey with a train.” He also flags a CD print, which is “archival from Franco . Sometimes I reconfigure something from the history, but sometimes it’s perfect as is.”

The line, called Moschino H&M, will drop on November 8; the news was announced late Saturday night, with a little help from Gigi Hadid, at Scott’s 11th annual party held around the Coachella music festival.

THE BK2WRK EDITION

When it comes to your career, don’t underestimate the power of looking polished. Whether it’s the first interview with your boss, an important client presentation, or even post-work drinks with your colleagues, how you present yourself and how you’re perceived, can make all the difference in getting ahead.

It is in your teens and early twenties that you can lay the foundation of great skincare and ensure your work is a lot easier by the time you hit forty.
Start with the basics; cleanse and moisturize daily and don’t leave home without applying SPF.
It’s as simple as that.
