Nourish and prevent


Having a healthy scalp is the key to having vibrant and silky hair. Compared to other parts of your body, the scalp has more sebaceous and sweat glands as well as larger pores, which makes cleansing and nourishing it necessary for the overall vitality of your hair. If the scalp isn’t well taken care of, it can impede hair growth, resulting in thin and dull hair. 


Armed with 46 years of research, Ryo’s hair products are designed to improve your scalp’s health. Bring your crown’s glory to where it once was with their herbal formulas that are all packed with revitalising power of Korean Ginseng. Now with two new additions to the Hair Loss Care range, you can battle damage and thinning caused by frequent styling and heat by treating your scalp.

There’s no other part in our body that we can claim to be both gentle yet also powerful as our hands. In so many ways they are our most neglected body parts. We use them daily for important activities like typing, texting or cooking, as well as hugging and holding the hands of the ones we love. Which is why it makes a lot of sense that we show our hands some tender, loving care once in a while. But how do we do it? Ahead, our tips on how to keep the most hardworking part of our body always looking beautiful.


Remember these hand care tips


Wear gloves


This is probably the most basic protection you can give your hands. Dish soaps are known to dry out the skin and perfumes in detergents have been known to worsen skin problems like eczema. Wearing gloves when using these products could offer some much-needed protection. 


Make sure you exfoliate your hands

Exfoliate 


Dead skin cells are often the reason hands look dull and rough. So make sure to exfoliate the hands at least once a week. A gentle exfoliator would be the most ideal since the skin on the hands are usually quite sensitive. Try the L’Occitane One-Minute Hand Scrub, which has shea, sweet almond, grapeseed oils and gentle beads to give your hands some nice scrubbing. You can also make your own using sugar and a skin-friendly oil like virgin coconut oil.


Moisturise


Just like the skin on our face, the skin on our hands need moisturisers to keep their elasticity. Skincare experts recommend hand creams that contain hand-friendly ingredients like shea butter, vitamin E and macadamia nut oil. And the best time to apply is when your skin is damp — think right after a bath or when you’ve just washed your hands. Keep on re-applying when necessary — your hands will thank you for it!

Check out Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream or the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream (Fragrance-Free), which is an affordable option to keep hands looking gorgeous. 


Moisturise your hands

Don’t forget the sunscreen


Always remember that it's not just your face that needs protection from the sun. Our hands also need sunblock to keep them looking young and to prevent sunspots that make them look blotchy. So make sure you slather on your favourite sunscreen for the body on your precious hands. Or better yet, opt for a moisturiser with SPF like the Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Correcting Hand Cream with SPF15. It also helps correct dark spots through its blend of vitamin C, salicylic acid, and yeast.



Go to a hand spa


Treat yourself to a hand spa


Go ahead and give your hands a treat. Head to your favourite nail spa and avail of their professional service. Not only can you ask someone to give your hands the loving it needs but you can also get a nice manicure to keep them pretty.

How's your Monday looking, ladies? Whether you're already caught in the hustle or simply going along the flow, the best way to resign from the day is to catch up on today's latest news. Agree? From news about Sephora getting hit by a data breach to a  Makoto Shinkai collection coming to Uniqlo, scroll through our Insider Roundup to read up on all the juicy details. 


Sephora suffers through a data breach 



Sephora is one of today's biggest stops — offline or online — when it comes to beauty shopping. So it's safe to say that it's quite unnerving to find out when it has been hit by a data breach. Last week, the skincare and makeup retailer reported that it discovered its security compromised two weeks after the said hacking has actually happened. Details of customers, from names, email addresses, passwords and more are said to be exposed. The affected regions are mostly from South East Asia, as well as Australia and New Zealand.


On the flip side, Sephora claims that no credit card or any other purchasing details were accessed despite the large-scale incident.


Fenty Beauty is launching a new foundation for dry skin



It's no secret that Fenty Beauty changed the game for foundations — and beauty brands — forever when it initially launched its vast range of shades from a couple of years ago. But while the much-hyped foundation proved to be an amazing find for many beauty lovers, dry-skinned ladies did not find a match with the original Pro Filt'r Foundation formula. Now, after two years of the brand's conception, Fenty Beauty announced that they are launching a Hydrating line with a similar extensive shade range. Look out for it on Sephora and the Fenty website starting August 15!

Kim K. promotes her new body foundation by applying it to... sunburn?



From one foundation news to the next, Kim Kardashian's post about using her latest KKW Beauty body foundation on her sunburn caused some internet frenzy. While there were divided opinions when she promoted her new product to cover up her psoriasis, it seems like her act united netizens to say that lathering foundation isn't exactly the best for sunburn and she should've used aloe instead. Still, take it from the Kardashian-Jenners to market their latest products in the buzziest ways possible, right? 


Valentina Sampaio is Victoria's Secret's first transgender model



Following the news that this year's VS fashion show is cancelled due to a myriad of controversies, it looks like the lingerie brand finally learned a thing or two about diversity by hiring 22-year-old model Valentina Sampaio in their latest series of campaigns. Marked as a move to rebrand, the Brazillian model has previously made waves for being the first openly transgender woman to make the cover of Vogue Brazil, making her a great candidate for such a change. 



Uniqlo rolls out a Makoto Shinkai collection



Following the previous global success of his hit Kimi no Na wa (Your Name) now comes another animated masterpiece from acclaimed Japanese director Makoto Shinkai.  Released last 19 July 2019 in Japan and soon to hit international theatres later into the year, Tenki No Ko (Weathering With You) adds to Shinkai's roster of visually appealing films with riveting coming of age narratives. And as a part of celebrating these films, Uniqlo will roll out a collection featuring these two creations on 26 August 2019 that will feature kumihimo, a Japanese-style braiding technique, as well as other motifs in reference to both films.
