Five Tricks: Five Years Younger

ARE THERE FIVE EASY TRICKS TO LOOKING FIVE YEARS YOUNGER?

I am not sure if these ideas really make me look any younger but they sure do make me feel a lot better.

There are certain “grooming” (for want of better word) jobs I need to have done regularly otherwise I don’t feel well with the world.

Simple beauty, hair and make-up rituals that make all the difference to how I look and present myself.

Need To Know: Meet Jade

Have you met Jade?

Apparently “the jade” is the most popular treatment for the face right now.


Facial massage has always been a great idea and touted as the way to guard the tautness and vitality of the skin. The idea of rolling the skin has long been a treatment of choice in China since centuries past.

You won’t find any argument from me.

Morning Beauty Routine: It’s All In The KISS


Not that kind of kiss.

Although it never hurts, the keep-it-simple-stupid kind of morning beauty routine is the one I’m talking about.



Wherever I am, whatever the day I practise the same morning routine and it is a simple one. Like cleaning the teeth, I can’t get going without these well-established rituals.

I might beauty-up at a different time of the morning but certain routines and products are non-negotiable.

Necessity? Yes, absolutely, I think so.

Maintaining The All-Star Silver


Silver is the all-star grey shade I’m hopeful for.

The all over silver to be more precise and if I could dip my locks to be instantly platinum, sleek and shiny,
I might even succumb.

The Art Of Ageing: Hair Care

Ageing means a re-think of our hair.

Let’s start with the colour.

The colour situation is an obvious one and we are either in the going grey or keeping colour camps.

You know my position on that.

I do waiver from time to time and I will admit the grey is confronting at times.
