Times have changed since 2006, and looking today at the global (rather than just American) marketplace, those numbers may or may not still be accurate - but this is the most recent study conducted, and offers and interesting point of departure to discuss what shoes men need, will wear, and will yield the highest value.
When we consider the uses of charcoal, most of us tend to have one thing on our mind... barbecues! However, we should be giving charcoal more credit, as alongside fuelling our summer, it has many other useful qualities, including improving our skin.
Insinuating that women should be ashamed to have body hair, or that the only reason they would remove it is for someone else's pleasure, is not giving them a choice. Especially when they have no choice in seeing the adverts.
Enter beauty bloggers. Young women everywhere started writing and vlogging about their beauty purchases, and consumers turned to them for unbiased and truthful reviews of products. Bloggers and vloggers have become huge influences in consumers' purchase decisions worldwide.
Tattoos are everywhere; they appear to be a big trend for this generation. But what do you do when you cannot stand staring at the pin up girl on your upper arm, the butterfly on your lower back or the profound word you've been trying to hide from your mum for years?
With the men's grooming market now hitting multi-billion dollar status and estimated to be worth a whopping £14.8bn in 2016 alone, a rise of approximately 5.8% compared to the previous 12-months, we've seen a huge rise in the number of brands trying to get in on the act.
As I grew into my teens it was hard to distinguish who I really was, I was an African girl who had never seen her natural hair texture. I always felt like I was striving to be something I wasn't, I loved weaves as well as relaxed my hair every few months but hated my diminishing hairline and the chemical burns that the relaxer would leave on my scalp. Ouch.
As a Safety in Beauty campaigner, and former paediatric nurse, it is my professional responsibility to help clients select the right treatment for them in a safe environment. So here are some of my top tips to protect yourself if you decide you'd like a procedure:
n its 100-year history the fashionista's bible has never featured a brand aimed at the post-surgery market until now. Describing the range as "stunning" and saying it "can be worn by all women who desire figure-enhancing swimwear," Vogue included the "Dive Collection" in the "Making Waves" edit in their celebratory 100 years edition, massively boosting diversity in the fashion industry at the same time.
Women need to be able to relate to the model - how can you invisage yourself in an outfit if a teenage girl with a body of a boy is modelling it? I want to open a magazine and see all types of bodies looking back at me, because the world does not come in one dress size. Everybody is different and that is what makes us beautiful.
I'm only human. I'm not designed to starve myself to fit into anyone else's standards of beauty. And, model-wise or not, I certainly do not deserve to be told what body shape of mine someone else prefers. Let me assure you, trying to stay that thin is a LIFESTYLE, not an existence, and certainly not something I ever wish to recreate.
Simply super stylish summer date ideas, hand-picked just for you.
I hate Summer. Or hot weather whatever time of year it arrives. It's just so exhausting for a winter person like me. I find myself absolutely convinced from Tuesday each week that it's actually already Thursday and, by the time I get home, most evenings I want nothing more than to Netflix and chill - literally, in front of a very big fan...
In the end it all boils down to personal preference and being able to do whatever the hell we want with our bodies. When men go commando they boast it's 'liberating', so why can't women do the same without it being misconstrued as an act of titillation? If 'I ain't got no panties on', I'm doing it for myself.
We need to be honest not candid, fur is not a green product and never will be. Whether it's real or fake. Real fur items are loaded with chemicals, the final product is not more natural than "battery chicken" fed with hormones.
Plain old moisturiser won't cut it. You see, although moisturiser is a barrier cream which prevents moisture loss, it doesn't actually create moisture. In order to really hydrate you need to lock something more concentrated underneath said barrier first.
The Millennial Luxury is actually the opposite concept of what the luxury conglomerates sell to the masses . It avoids the bling effect of a logotype splashed all around an object, preferring the object to stand out by its own values.
A real fur coat can last for 30 years and with a bit of clever restyling need never go out of fashion. Plus it offers extraordinary comfort and warmth. Fakes on the other hand are 'disposable fashion' and hang around in most wardrobes for no more than five years or so, if they're lucky.
The most commonly exposed areas of skin are the face, neck and hands, and so these areas need the most care and protection. Pollution can not only enhance signs of ageing in all of these areas, but can also cause skin dehydration and dryness, potentially damaging skin cells.
