3D makeup and machine masks: Is this the future of beauty?
I guess you could say it's a bit Tron," said make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench. We were discussing the disembodied head of model Slick Woods, glowing like a radioactive doll against a landscape that is very reminiscent of the pioneering sci-fi adventure movie. The image is one of ten designed for the launch of Dazed Beauty, a magazine and online platform with a radical agenda for which the engagingly witty Ffrench is the creative director. "Until now beauty has been very two dimensional," she said, "I want to make the bridge to 3D. We have a unique opportunity here to wor... (Click Here To Read More)

Why are menstrual cups becoming more popular?
Periods are a part of life for much of the population, but talking about them openly can be difficult for some people. But now they're a topic of government debate, and "period poverty" initiatives keep making headlines. Conversations are opening up, and new products are on the market.

Best Shower Tips To Keep Your Hair Healthy :- Health and Beauty Updates
Here’s how it goes with most women – they learn a certain way of washing their hair when they were kids and never make changes to this routine even after growing up. In fact, I’m guilty of doing this too. Though there is nothing inherently wrong with sticking to a particular hair washing routine, the problem begins when it actually starts damaging your hair. You may think that you have split ends or are experiencing hair fall because there’s something wrong with the products you are using and change them out – only to see the problems persist. What you need to do is make a few change... (Click Here To Read More)

Pain bias: The health inequality rarely discussed
In 2009, my doctor told me that, like “a lot of women”, I was paying too much attention to my body. Saying there wasn’t an issue, he suggested I just relax and try to ignore the symptoms. The decision seemed to run counter to what my records showed. A few weeks earlier, I had ended up in the emergency room with chest pains and a heart rate hitting 220 beats per minute. The ER crew told me it was a panic attack, gave me Xanax and told me to try to sleep. I’d had panic attacks before. I knew this episode was not one. So I went to my doctor. He put me on a heart monitor overnight. Bing... (Click Here To Read More)

The health risks of maturing early
Girls are reaching puberty at younger and younger ages — but how society responds is having a lasting effect on their health. I remember the first time a stranger openly gawked at my bare legs.

He looked the same age as my father. But it wasn’t friendliness I detected in his eyes. As a young girl who developed early and looked older than my age, my mind struggled to catch up with the rapid changes taking place in my bo... (Click Here To Read More)

Why alcohol affects more women than men
It used to be that men were the outsized alcohol drinkers in Western society – perhaps best depicted in popular culture by Don Draper’s Mad Men cronies, who swilled from office stashes of brown liquor, knocked back three-martini lunches and imbibed Old Fashioneds in an after-work pub culture where few women dared tread. But epidemiologists have noted that the rise of marketing alcohol to women and the changing of gender roles have gradually shifted the booze imbalance. Overall, men are still almost twice as likely as women to binge drink. But that isn’t true for younger people, specific... (Click Here To Read More)
