A naturopath tells: Why we should ditch chemicals in beauty products

I often get asked why you should make the switch to all-natural products. And no matter what I say, there’s a number of arguments back like, “Are chemicals really that bad?” but what it boils down to is that you love your beauty products and don’t want to change them, even if they are bad for you! Thing is, the natural beauty industry is only just getting started. There are now natural products which are better than their synthetic counterparts which were formulated over 50 years ago (old, bad for you ingredients), so you really have no excuse. Need more...

Does taking collagen powder really work for smooth skin?

Does taking collagen powder really work for smooth skin?

I take a collagen supplement. Every weekday I pop the powder into a green smoothie and drink it in the hope of plumping up my skin with every sip. Has it helped? Look, I think it might have. Maybe. I don’t really know, it could be the retinol serum that I’m using or the RECREATION new product I’m currently testing. But it might be the collagen (insert hands up emoji here). Or it could also be just a giant plastic container of hope. This week, The Coveteur spoke to New York plastic surgeon, Dr Melissa Doft. Here’s what she had...

Why I'd never buy traditional perfume for a teenager

Why I'd never buy traditional perfume for a teenager

I belong to a beauty group on Facebook, I won't name which one, but just wanted to share something that frazzled me: One of the questions from a member was along the lines of, "what perfume would you recommend for a teenager for her first perfume?" She wanted to introduce her young daughter to the all the beautiful things about fragrance and was after something fresh and light in scent. To my absolute horror, all the old traditional favourites were wheeled out - YSL, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Estee Lauder - you name it, they were suggested by other group members to...
