May is lots of things to lots of people. To me, it’s when I celebrate my birthday as well as my brother’s, sister’s and daughter’s birthday. It’s when May Day and Cinco de Mayo and Holocaust Remembrance Day and Mother’s Day and Memorial Day are celebrated.

May is also Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and according to recent research from the American Cancer Society 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime with the bulk of that (90%) caused by over exposure to the sun. Sun avoidance, or at least protection, is still your best weapon.

Here, the top tips to keep you covered:

Are you obsessed with the size of your pores?

You are not alone. Far from it.

A survey of nearly 2,000 women by L’Oreal Paris found that 45% of women would change the size of their pores if they could, and almost a third say they’re more worried about pore size than wrinkles.

Earning a degree in Art and Art History helped her fine tune her eye for quality and color, and years working in the floral industry gave her the expertise of how natural botanicals can work hand in hand and elevate beauty products.

With more than 15 years of experience in both beauty and botanicals, Whitcombe has c

THE ‘NO TOUCH’ BREAST AUGMENTATION

Posted by 05.06.16

Capsular contracture is among the most feared of breast augmentation complications. This occurs when scar tissue forms around the implant, and can cause pain, stiffness and possible leakage of the fluid inside the implant. Fortunately, the next generation of breast implants being used today are vastly improved so that there is a much lower rate of capsules from the silicone gel used in the 1990s.

Capsular contracture almost always involves revision surgery, and there is no way to predict who will develop it or when. What’s more, women who undergo secondary surgery to treat capsular contracture have a higher risk of it occurring again. And it’s not pretty.

One of its causes is biofilm
