There's little general awareness of the use of light to effectively treat inflammatory acne. Traditionally, too, there has been limited accessibility to it.
Approaching Cameron House, the first thing I can see is the beautiful blue expanse of Loch Lomond. We're only 15 miles from Glasgow airport, but the surrounding green hills and fresh air signal the countryside at its best.
Until recently, I was brain-dead about beauty. It might be stereotypical to assume that if you have ovaries, you know your Nars from your Nivea but, alas, I did not.
No, I didn't realize until 2011, when I met with a car accident which changed my life... I was a girl with full of life, love, creativity & happiness. A girl who was just like a kid & who never thought of any bad thing can ever happen to her or to anyone in her family.
Is there ever a time on the Channel 4 reality show, that one of the Sloane Rangers has a hair out of place? Even when their doing yoga, in a hottub or throwing drinks over each other, those Made In Chelsea girls have their locks perfectly coiffed to an inch of their life.
It was this mindset of exploring a place overlooked that led me to spend a couple of days in Bury St. Edmunds, a Suffolk town close to where I grew up. I'd passed through the place many a-time but never stuck around to see what was on offer.
People often comment that I smell like a bakery - not because I'm always stuffing my face with cakes (I'm a savoury kinda girl), but because I tend to favour sugary, homely scents for my everyday beauty products. So, with the return of The Great British Bake Off, I figured this was as good a time as any to look at bakery-inspired beauty.
We live in an age where society attempts to conform to the status quo. We are told that in exchange for beauty we will obtain success and happiness. What we are not told is how much unhappiness we often go through to achieve this unachievable perception of beauty.
Lets be clear here -we are not meant to live on Mars. You've seen the pictures. Our bodies are built for earth.
You guys, it's that time of the year, when the prestigious competition Miss
Universe World 2013 opens for applications. Yes! I can feel it - this is my year. As I am yet to become a UK citizen, I will first have to win the Miss Denmark round - easy schmeasy!
My hair has been miserable and at times enraged with me but we are in a good place right now. It's time to own my mistakes and say sorry for some of the acts of cruelty I have inflicted on my hair over the years.
Jo Malone was fired from her floristry job for throwing a bucket of water over her manager. Personally, I welcome a smack in the face from her; and if she wants to throw a bucket of Pomelo Bath Cologne over me too, fair enough. I'll have that.
Ian Carmichael, the Mayfair-based hairdresser who has been responsible for the Queen's hair for the past 15 years, declared that it was a "big mistake for women in their mid-40s and beyond" to have their hair cut short.
I have a strange relationship with my stomach. It's a bit like the one I had with my first boyfriend - I really love it, but I treat it mean. Since hitting 30, it's being mean back. I've noticed a circle of flesh around my belly button that feels like a doughnut - come to think of it, it may be a doughnut.
We may harm our children, especially our daughters and other female members of our families by continually describing them as being beautiful , a comment that if not followed up with an equal statement of you are, e.g. smart, on some level means that females may not be taken seriously .
I'm a huge fan of this campaign, not simply because Fake Bake has shunned the easy selling point of associating themselves with a supermodel, but because they are keen to hear from women who take pride in their appearance, but who also have substance and personality - exactly the type of women that real women should be seeing more of in the beauty industry.
