We all hear the word ‘blackheads on the regular but do we really know what it means? Blackheads are basically blocked pores, this much we know. But what’s blocking those pores?


Our pores generally become clogged up with an oxidized mix of oil and dead skin cells. This doesn't mean your skin is dirty it just means that the natural sebum on your skin has built up and mixed with the cells you don’t need any more. 

The last thing you should do is cause damage by scrubbing your face too hard but if you’re unsure of how else to get rid of blackheads, worry not. We have a few tips direct from our panel of beauty buffs… 

Try products with salicylic acid 

Go for over-the-counter products that contain salicylic acid. You can opt for gels, toners, facial sprays or leave-on products to prolong your exposure to the acid inside. Don’t be put off by the word ‘acid’ either – salicylic acid is a gentle exfoliator that’s safe to use on the face, flushing pores out without the need to rub your skin. 

Go for a retinoid

If your skin is sensitive this option might not be for you, however, if you can use one, a retinoid is a much more thorough option for refreshing your skin. If it's too much for your complexion, try a low-strength retinoid which is often more tolerable.

Try enzymatic exfoliators

Try a mask with papaya, charcoal, pineapple or clay as these ingredients will wash surface skin cells away more easily and invigorate the fresh skin cells beneath.

Give microdermabrasion a go

Microdermabrasion is a process in which a fine stream of tiny crystals are moved across the surface of the skin to loosen any dead cells, which are then vacuumed away. This is a great option if you suffer from very clogged skin. 

Moisturize your face

All of these methods can put your skin through a little stress, so after every procedure, don’t forget to continue washing your face and moisturizing. It's important to maintain your skin’s moisture balance with daily care.

Too faced have always been known for launching very extravagant and playful collection, so, I was pretty pleased to see that they were launching a more natural one.  As a fan of blush and highlighter this one face palette caught instantly my attention.  I could see myself gravitating to this palette all year around, there are two highlights from the pink family that I would love using for every day, three shades of blushes that could use depending on the seasons and mood and one matte bronzer, because who doesn't need one? photo credit: @toofaced. #beauty #makeup #toofaced

This makeup look on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is beyond, BEYOND. We all know that she has a stunning face, to say the least, but I just love this work of makeup artist Hung Vanngo. The smoke out wing is a look that he does for most of the clients that work with him, but this looks really suits Rosie's eye shape and I really like how he keeps the lips very balmy and juicy but no glossy.  photo credit: @hungvanngo on twitter  #beauty #makeup #look #mua

The World Cup has officially begun and we’re already speculating over which teams are likely to make it through the first few rounds. Come on, who doesn’t love cheering their team on?


Though we enjoy a little healthy competition, we must admit, a football shirt and jeans isn’t exactly our go-to look. As for face-paint and themed accessories, forget it. Sure, we’ll be rooting for our home team but we’d rather show our support without making any sartorial compromises.

To ensure we’re looking on-point for every match, we’ve given the term ‘sports luxe’ a whole new meaning and put together an edit of our favourite pieces from the coolest high-end retailers to match our beloved teams’ football strips. 

From luxe leather jackets to statement dresses and day-to-night boots, whether you’re cheering for England, France, Serbia or Brazil, you’ll be nailing your outfit game and certainly won’t look out of place in the stands. 

Ready to rock your team’s colours without compromising on style? Scroll through our gallery for outfit inspiration and shop the edit below…

Sun exposure, salty water, chlorine and frequent washes can make hair dull and brittle so summer can be a tough season for your tresses. We looked to our panel of beauty experts for a few tips on how to protect your hair during the warmer months. 


Fancy having stunning holiday hair all summer long?... 

Trim on the regular 

Having your hair cut on a regular basis means preventing split ends before they can move up your strands. Book your hair appointment as a preventative measure even if your hair is already in a good condition. Every four to six months should do the trick.

Moisture locked 

The sun can have a drying effect on your hair so it's essential to begin a regular regime of deep moisturizing. Apply serum on a weekly or fortnightly basis that will restore the moisture levels. For extra protection apply a hydrating mask for fine or dyed hair. 

Wear a hat

Invest in cool fedora hats that will protect your hair and scalp as well as your face from the sun's harmful rays. This season we absolutely love a wide-brimmed hat with a cute bow or boho embroidery. 

UV spray 

Opt for a generous spritz of UV heat protector before you head out the door in summer. This seems like a small measure to take but it’ll make a ton of difference to your hair and scalp on sunny days. 

Now go ahead and enjoy the summer sun with reckless abandon. Shop our favourite haircare products from the  edit below...

It's official: summer is here and whether you're prepping with turmeric-infused smoothies and SoulCycle sessions or simply relaxing into the new season, it’s time for a fresh approach to your beauty routine. We’ve put together a few tips on how to prep your body for the beach, ensuring you feel cool, comfortable and confident in your bikini this summer… 


How to prep your skin 

Start with regular body brushing or exfoliating with mitts and scrubs. Smooth along the backs of the legs, elbows and knees. Stimulate your circulation and improve the appearance of your skin tone while sloughing away any dead skin and getting a fresh glow on. Next, moisturize your skin by applying a hydrating body oil. Focus on any dry areas and use a luxe night cream to nourish your skin. 

Incorporate a decent sunblock or primer with SPF into your beauty routine. This is essential for protecting the delicate skin on your face from harmful sun damage in the summer months. For hair removal, if that’s your jam,  be sure to exfoliate beforehand for an even, long-lasting finish. Book your wax at least 72 hours before you hit the beach to allow time for your skin to settle. 

How to prep your nails 

Try an intensive pedicure with a callus-peel if necessary. Those feet could do with a  rejuvenating session after a long winter. Apply moisturizer to the bottoms of your feet to prolong your pedi for the days that follow. As for the shade, pick a hue that contrasts your skin and makes your tan pop. 

How to top up your tan 

Whether you're booked a spray tan appointment or are tanning at home make sure to exfoliate and moisturize to prevent streaks and always book your spray tan a day before heading to the beach. If you're at home apply your formula with a mitt to avoid staining your hands and distribute the color more evenly. Wash your hands immediately and wait for at least ten minutes before putting on clothes.

With summer vacations approaching we’re hitting the gym more often than usual. If that's the case for you too, you're also probably suffering from some post-workout aches. No pain, no gain, right? Wrong what you do after a workout can be just as important as what you do during so we’ve rounded up our favourite relaxing rituals to  help restore your muscles after exercise... 


Eat a tasty protein treat 

After a workout replenish your energy with a protein bar or a smoothie with some added protein powder. Add a handful of your favorite fruits like blueberries and bananas to make it more appetizing, an avocado for healthy fat and some granola or oats for fiber. Nuts and seeds are also great for protein and if you’re craving something bigger, go for poached eggs, grilled chicken or sushi.

Soak it off 

When you hit the showers or run a bath, opt for an invigorating shower gel or cream made with ginger, lemon or grapefruit. Try essential oils like lavender that will relieve aching muscles and if you're not in a hurry, treat yourself to a long relaxing bath with magnesium salts at home. Throw on a face mask or hair treatment for the full pampering experience and detox your post-gym skin. 

Sauna and jacuzzi time 

If you're a member of a gym, you'll most likely have access to a sauna or jacuzzi. The warm temperature will increase pulse rate and circulation without straining your muscles and will help with relaxation. Take a cold shower after your session using a revitalizing shower gel to tighten pores, refresh skin and leave you feeling ready to take on the world.

Harsh weather, fumes and the stress of city life can weaken our defences and dry up the skin so protecting it is key. Luckily, anti-pollution beauty has arrived. So, for all you city dwellers, we've prepared a list of hacks and products to save your complexion, fight free radicals and get that much-desired glow. Anti-pollution beauty consists of purifying the skin and then  reviving it with great skincare and nutrition... 


Begin your routine with a great cleanser. Wash your face and then exfoliate to slough away dry, dead skin; you can use an AHA for this or a gentle scrub two or three times a week. 

Follow this with a charcoal mask charcoal is great at purifying the skin and ridding your face of city grime and dirt. Next, apply defence-boosting oils and glow-activating serums for that extra luminous effect. 

Finally, make sure you invest in a quality SPF and a daily moisturiser that will protect your skin against damaging UVA and UVB rays. Make-up containing an SPF is great for an extra barrier against sun damage too. 

Boost your inner beauty by indulging in a diet full of antioxidants like citrus fruit and berries, nuts and delicious avocados for Vitamin E. Vitamin E is great for fighting free radicals and promoting healthy cell reproduction. 

Be sure to incorporate lots of Omega 3 and fatty acids into your diet to help with this too. These are typically found in salmon, tuna and other oily fish. These vitamins and minerals are great for boosting your collagen production, giving you that healthy glow.

Although we’re loving the sunshine and are doing our best to enjoy it while it lasts, we always put our wellbeing first. UV rays can cause phenomenal damage to the skin so we never leave the house on a sunny day without sunscreen. 


Beauty editors everywhere will tell you it’s worth investing in a quality sunscreen, or at least a decent face cream with SPF, especially during the summer months. There are tons of great options available so if you’re not sure which brand to try, take a look at our list of favourites and their benefits below…  


A nourishing SPF 30 body spray, Mimitika’s sunscreen offering is super lightweight. While providing broad spectrum defence against UVA and UVB rays, it also contains a natural active ingredient to aid melanin production for a natural healthy tan and antioxidant-rich Vitamin E. It’s not tested on animals and is free from parabens, alcohol and allergens.

Using a combination of zinc and titanium dioxide, this UV shield provides SPF30 broad spectrum protection without blocking pores. Omorovicza uses light-reflecting minerals to blur imperfections and give skin a matte finish.

Blending botanicals such as Chamomile and Echinacea to soften, smooth and hydrate skin, this non-sticky formula works very well under make-up and is suitable for all skin types.

Getting a pixie cut can be very scary at first, but take it from us, once you go for a shorter hairstyle you’ll never want to go back. It's a hassle-free way to look elegant at all times, and it's been an integral style element of icons like Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy. 


This is the perfect hairstyle to rock whether you have blonde, red, brunette even rainbow-toned hair and it will make your cheekbones pop while adding definition to your face. 

How to decide whether to get a pixie cut... 

Pixie cuts come in all shapes and sizes; from Katy Perry's fringed version, to Scarlett Johansson's quiff or Zoe Kravitz's side-sweeping look. 

If you have a round face, show off your features with a sleeker pixie crop like Michelle Williams' platinum blonde do. All you need is a simple cat eye and a bold lip and you're party-ready. 

For a square face shape go for Coco Rocha's quiff to offset your jaw and cheekbones. Mess with the front by adding a little product and go simple or bold depending on your mood. 

If you've more of a heart-shaped face, you'll need a pixie cut with a few layers to complement your face. Take Kate Hudson’s ultra-short hairstyle for inspiration. 

Are you bold enough to try the pixie cut this summer?
