BEAUTY IS…WHITER WHITES

Makeup Artist, Claire (she) and Dermal Therapist, James (he) share their views… She says: Clear, bright and white eyes are renowned for being the best indicator of superior inner health, however, if you suffer from permanently bloodshot whites there are some clever little makeup tricks that will create the illusion of whiter whites. A quick fix is to apply a white kohl pencil along the inner rim (or waterline) of the eye, then soften the effect by applying a skin coloured kohl pencil over the top of the white (as white on its own can be too harsh and obvious).

IT’S A COLD WAR…

Change of season is upon us and as we transition from summer to winter our immune systems can take a hit.  We’ve asked wellness expert Natasha Mason for her top tips to be well this change in season… 1. Prevent colds and flus! I am loving wild oregano oil – nature’s medicine chest in a bottle. I add a few drops to my daily ritual of oil pulling with organic extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil.

GO BAREFOOT FOR A DAY: TOMS’ ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES

At Who’s Your? we’re shoe-aholics, so it will come as no surprise that we love TOMS! The label that matches every pair sold with a donation of shoes to a child in need. So, this Tuesday 16 April we’re ditching our Missoni flats to join the global movement of TOM’s One Day Without Shoes, which aims to raise awareness of the impact a pair of shoes can have on a child’s life. We encourage you to join us by putting yourself in someone else’s (lack of) shoes and walk around barefoot for a day to experience the difference that a pair of shoes can make to your day.

BACK TO BASICS

By James Vivian aka the Travelling Peelsman and dermal therapist to the ‘Who’s Who’ Cleansing. Toning. Moisturising.  You might not think about them very much but these three steps are the foundations of healthy skin. As well as cleaning and rehydrating the skin, cleansing, toning and moisturising prepare your skin for the application of secondary skincare products, treatments and cosmetics.
