As a result of lockdown, coupled with tough economic times, the past several months have been stressful. Many South Africans can’t help but feel anxious about what the future will look like for them. While studies reveal that stress and anxiety increase the chances of disease, relaxation treatments like massage and reflexology reduce cortisol levels, which calm the mind and body – minimising the chances of inflammation and degenerative disease.
Need change – a new go-to-summer style, feeling tempted to shave your head out of frustration? It has been a long winter, but summer is finally here. The days are longer; the fashion is fresh, and makeup colours are dazzling. But as the weather changes, so do hairstyling trends.

If you haven’t found your summer look, stay cool, cute, and chic with these two easy summer hairstyling looks.
Need a little shaping – stuck with a rogue set of 80s bushy brows or maybe those once-lushes-locks are reliving the slender 90s? Either way, they say that the eyes are the window to the soul, but the eyes can also give away your best-kept secret, like your age. Age can change the shape, colour, and density of eyebrows. However, similar to a mini-facelift, the right set of arches can also knock years off.

A bad hair day can affect your day negatively. It can impact you in more ways than simply needing to wear a hat to cover it up. When your tresses look a little sad, then your confidence levels can take a major dip. This can affect your performance during an important presentation at work, as you might be more concerned about what your colleagues and potential business partners think of your appearance. It can also affect your confidence levels during a date, and in turn, the person you are with might be able to pick up on the fact that you feel a little insecure.
With all of the difficulties we already have to face in life on the daily, having bad hair does not need to be one of them. Luckily, there are professionals in the hairstyling industry that are doing their part every day to help save the world from bad hair days.
Make-up artistry is certainly an art form in its own right. With a face as your canvas, a brush in hand, and products like foundation, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and an eyebrow pencil, you can create the most beautiful works of art.
It is safe to say that more people practise this type of art than any other. While there are many who do sketches, paint on canvases, and do performance art, many people do their make-up either every day or a few times a week. Every person who puts paints their face is an artist. While most only do it for themselves and maybe a sister or a friend, there are those who choose to make this type of art a career.
Have you heard of retail therapy? Well, beauty therapy is even better. When an individual feels sad, frustrated, or simply emotional, going for treatments such as getting a new haircut, getting a manicure or pedicure, getting a facial, or going for a massage, can make you feel like a new person.
This is the best kind of therapy for many, even better than shopping. We all know that hairstylists do not just style hair. Customers typically spend their time in the chair talking about their lives and troubles. Your hairstylist can end up knowing more about you and your life than your family members. Manicures and pedicures are also not just given, they come with conversation. And when someone is sad or stressed, there is nothing like a massage to lift their spirits.
There are many special events and occasions for which we dress up and where we take photos, but unless it is your wedding day, the chances are that you will not look back at these photos that often or display many photos from the event in your home. Your wedding photos will stay with you forever, and you do not want to regret your choices years down the line. Here are a few tips that we have put together to help you get a more timeless look.
