Ever wonder what is it that people with healthy hair do to get their tresses so on point? Sometimes it's about more than just using the right shampoo. We looked to a few haircare experts to find out what to do to achieve that natural bounce, strength and shine... 


Get haircuts on the regular 

If your ends are splitting, be sure to book in for regular trims curb that breakage. Make your hair appointments every 6-8 weeks. 

Go au naturel 

Everyone needs a rest from time to time and the same goes for your hair. Let your hair dry without heated styling products if you can and take a rest from too much product. Let it all hang loose and avoid scrunching it up too. 

Hair care also means scalp care 

If you're itchy and constantly scratching your head that might be a sign. Dry hair, too much product and regular pulling or scratching can  traumatize your scalp. Try products that will enhance the health of the scalp and be kind to your hair. 

Add protein to your diet 

Hair is keratinized protein so adding it to your everyday meals will practically mean building more hair. Add some iron while you're at it, as iron deficiency has been linked to female hair loss. And for vegans there are a lot of yummy ways to add it too. 

Condition your hair 

You should incorporate a deep conditioner into your weekly hair care routine for extra hydration. There are many deep-conditioning hair masks that you can apply once a week for extra shine and healthy locks. We’ve listed a few we love below.

If you haven't been living under a rock recently you must have caught this trend of the ten step Korean skin care routine. We know that ten steps seem like a lot of work, but it's total exaggeration we hear! You don't have to barge in this ten step commitment straight away. Keep the basics and opt for a 5 step regimen to start with. If you want to follow this routine to a T and acquire the enviable skin of a Korean princess here are the ten steps you need to follow: 


Step 1: Oil Cleanser 

Apply this to dry skin in order to remove makeup and any other oil-based product remainders. You might need proper make up remover for heavy makeup though. 

Step 2: Foam Cleanser 

As you might have guessed an oil-cleanser is not enough. You need a foam water-based cleanser in order to remove impurities. Make sure you cleanse it twice for a squeaky clean skin surface. 

Step 3: Exfoliator 

Exfoliation is a vital part of the process as it thoroughly cleans clogged pores that you wouldn't be able to reach differently. It's also a great way to get rid of dead skin. This step is not recommended for daily use, especially if you have sensitive skin. But if you a have a tougher complexion you can try exfoliating up to 3 times per week. 

Step 4: Toner 

After you have cleansed and scrubbed the skin thoroughly it will be cleaner but quite fragile and in desperate need of ample hydration. The best way to prepare the skin before applying any sort of hydrating cream is to apply a toner so that it'll absorb it better. 

Step 5: Essence 

The essence is truly what the Korean skin care is all about. It's the element of the routine that really differentiates it from any other skin care routine. The inherently Korean essence is basically very similar to a serum, booster of ampoules but it contains a greater percentage of water and as such it looks and feels a lot like a toner. 

Step 6: Serums & Boosters 

These oil-based treatments are not necessary if you deal with brown spots or pigmentation often. If you have normal or dry skin you can try these methods for a bonus layer of hydration. Believe us, your skin will thank you for it! 

Step 7: Sheet Mask 

The great thing about masks is that there is no 'one mask fits all'. You can try a hydrating mask if you have dry skin or a Vitamin C packed one to brighten it. You don't need to do this step every night. It's actually more beneficial for you if you only do it twice a week. 

Step 8: Eye Cream 

Again with eye cream, you can target the areas that are most important to you. You could focus on fine lines or dark circles. 

Step 9: Face Cream 

This is one of the vital parts of the routine even if you leave out a couple of other steps. Skin hydration is the key to soft, younger looking skin at all times. Try to wear a lighter day cream and a full nourishing night cream. 

Step10: SPF 

The most important step of the Korean regimen is the SPF. You must have heard of women swearing by their SPF since the slightest exposure to sunlight can speed up the ageing process of the skin. SPF needs to be applied daily even if you don't live in a city that is necessarily sunny. 

There you have it! The Complete Guide to Korean Morning Routine. Need help with picking the right products? Have a look below at our top picks for every single step and say hello to brighter younger-looking skin!

The London Marathon took place last Sunday and there’s something about it that makes us feel inspired… Could this be the moment we finally take up running?


Whether it’s because your friend who was always last in gym class managed to finish the race, or because your cousin raised over a thousand pounds or even because you heard about the 23 year-old club runner who finished first of all British runners and automatically qualified for the 2017 World Championships, there’s probably a part of you that wishes you had done it as well.

Of course, we don’t expect you to sign up for a marathon immediately, but here are a few tips on how to take up running:

Start with walking. This is mostly to avoid any injuries if your body isn’t used to running. If you start doing too much too soon, chances are you’ll get shin splints or knee injuries and then you’ll have to take a break from running which would kind of defeat the purpose, wouldn’t it? Experts usually recommend starting with a fixed ratio, like running 2min for every 5min walked, so find the one for you and stick to it.

Listen to your body. When you take up running, you should definitely feel some muscle pain, because your body isn’t used to it. But it’s important that you don’t ignore more severe pains and adjust your running accordingly.

Stay hydrated. It might be a good idea to bring a water bottle the first few times you go out on a run because it’s very important to stay hydrated.

Eat more. Your body is going to work harder than usual so you should make sure you increase your food intake. Eat carbohydrates to give your body more energy, and get some protein to help your body recover after the effort.

Get appropriate running gear. Not only will having a nice outfit motivate you to get out there, you will also run better if you have the right clothes. Some accessories are also worth investing in like a running watch if you’re not running outdoors so you can keep track of your pace and the distance you’ve run.

Make a good playlist. There is nothing more motivating than a good song, and with the right playlist you will probably end up surprising yourself.

Find the right route. Unless you’re running on a treadmill, a great part of running is that you can explore the outdoors. Try finding a park nearby so you don’t have to constantly wait at crossings or bump into people, and try switching up your routes to keep it interesting!Now all you need to do is start…

The majority of us mere mortals can't compare our faces to the poreless picture perfect models in magazines or even social media - not without the right Instagram filter anyway. To keep your skin in tip top condition, look like you've just had a spa day with our tips on how to fake a facial...

- Cleanse, tone and moisturise on a daily basis but avoid using industrial strength scrubs too often. Limit use of potentially harsh, drying scrubs to just once or twice a week to avoid leaving the home red faced (literally). Elemis' Skin Buff and Green People's Age Defy Soft Buff Skin Exfoliator clears away pack rejuvenating properties without stripping the skin's natural oils.

- Flush out gunk from your pores every once and awhile by steaming your face with a bowl of warm water or create a homemade mask using ingredients such as banana, honey, avocado or even aloe vera and leave on for 15 minutes. If you're short on time, resort to our edit below to search for the perfect mask for your skin type!

- Moisturise! After treating your skin to a home facial, give your face the hydration it needs via a spritz of Clinique's Moisture Surge Spray, patting on Caudalie Divine Oil or Decleor Hydra Floral Multi-Protection Rich Cream.

Still suffering from a winter hair slump that you just can't seem to get out of? Check out our tips below for 5 ways to beat dry hair!

1) Just as washing your face with very hot water can damage your skin, washing your hair with the hot tap only on a regular basis can cause breakage and weaken hair roots! Use cool water to give your hair shine, clean your scalp and improve its circulation.

2) This tip may seem obvious but MOISTURISE! Balmain Hair's moisturising shampoo and conditioner duo guarantees hydration for your hair every step of the washing process and beyond.

3) Make time for hair masks. With products such as Balmain Hair's paraben free repair and revitalising masks, it's never been easier to attain soft nourished hair!

4) Use a leave-in conditioner. Not only will doing so smooth your hair cuticles but one such as Balmain Hair's offers UV protection to see you through summer.

5) Use argan oil products to repair dry damaged tresses such as Balmain Hair's Silk Spray and Argan Moisturising Elixer which also leave hair sleek and shiny!
