The world of beauty can be a confusing place. Makeup and skincare products are laden with complex words that are meant to help us understand what we’re putting on our faces and bodies. But what do they all mean?
When talking about hair, we always seem to gloss over scalp care; but the truth is that a healthy scalp is without a doubt the secret to better hair.
My hair obeys no master. It’s fine, prone to split ends and frizzes at the first sign of moisture in the air; so I’ve always been very careful when dealing with it. I only ever blow dried it or straightened it occasionally and was always diligent in my hair care routine- gentle shampooing, conditioning and masking at least twice a week. But as soon as I hit thirty things swiftly went downhill.
There was a time not too long ago when dry shampoo was looked down upon as a slightly gross product for lazy, low maintenance beauty haters. Hygiene stigma aside, this miracle powder has undoubtedly become one of the biggest beauty success stories of recent times, becoming a staple on nearly every woman’s bathroom shelf.
Bananas are a popular healthy addition to any diet and a great choice of post-workout fuel to replenish the body and give you a much needed energy boost. In fact, they’re my absolute most favourite fruit in every form- banana ice cream, banana pudding, muffins, pie- you name it. But who knew the humble banana could also offer so many beauty benefits. Rich in amino acids and antioxidants, everybody’s favourite yellow snack is also a great source of beauty boosting vitamins A, B and C and minerals such as potassium and zinc which can also help to keep skin in top form.
