Insider Roundup: Bella Thorne's Lemon Skincare Routine & More

Ah, the Friday fun

Another week, another set of amazing news ahead. You might want to sit down and sip on some cuppa as we recap the buzz from Reddit downvoting Bella Thorne's natural anti-acne skincare to LVMH announcing their own fashion prize. We spill the scoop in today's Insider Roundup. 

The internet reacts to Bella Thorne's natural skincare routine

After prompting netizens to debate whether we should wash our face or not in the morning, Bella Thorne sends the internet aflame once again with her latest skincare regimen video. In a segment she did with Harper's Bazaar, Bella showed her natural skincare routine that includes a DIY exfoliator made of honey, sugar, and lemon juice. While the actress and Instagram influencer claimed this is her secret to combatting acne, many were quick to comment that the combination of sugar and lemon is definitely abrasive and harsh towards the skin. She also called moisturisers 'crazy' and 'extra', which also didn't sit well with the beauty enthusiasts in the comments. The reactions to the video were so intense that just after a day of it going live, a Reddit thread was created to discuss everything 'wrong' with the video. Yikes!

Permanent lip stains are growing in popularity

Ever wanted to get that perfect just-bitten lip look without having to apply lipsticks or tints repeatedly? Well, with the growing popularity of permanent and semi-permanent makeup procedures, now you can. Following the fame of brow microblading and BB glow injections is the 'lip blushing' trend. Similar to the previous non-invasive procedures mentioned, this treatment basically falls under cosmetic tattooing, which enhances the lips' colour for definition and fullness sans the use of a filler. Would you be interested in getting this done? 

Are cowboy hats the newest celebrity fashion obsession?

From a beauty trend to one for style, here's something celebrities are abuzz about. Cowboy hats seem to be the hottest celebrity accessory this season. Replacing oversized floppy hats, these country-inspired head toppers are recently seen sported by Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Lizzo as part of their summer ensembles. Even male personalities like Diplo and Lil Nas X have also been seen owning this headpiece. Could this be the new bum bag when it comes to popularity?

LVMH announces fashion prize named after Karl Lagerfeld

In honour of the CHANEL and Fendi creative director who passed away early this year, LVMH has named a fashion prize after Karl Lagerfeld. The fashion and beauty conglomerate has held a Young Fashion Designers contest every year since 2014, of which Lagerfeld was once an active judge. According to Delphine Arnault, Louis Vuitton's executive vice president, this move was to commemorate Lagerfeld's contributions to the fashion labels under LVMH and will serve as a way to "cherish those precious memories."

Double-amputee Daisy-May Demetre is set to appear in New York Fashion Week

Born with fibular hemimelia, a condition where a part or all of a person's leg bones are missing, Daisy-May Demetre has undergone double amputation at 18 months old. Now, at nine years old, she'll be strutting her prosthetic legs as a show of inspiration and pride in uniqueness at New York Fashion Week. Walking for Lulu et Gigi Couture, which also cast her previously in London Kids' Fashion Week, this will definitely be a piece of cake for Daisy-May. The kid has been modelling for Nike, River Island and other brands in the U.K. for almost a year now. Talk about ending your week with this positive story in mind, right?
