Last year we dedicated an issue of CosBeauty to self-care in the midst of the global pandemic. Who would have foreseen we’d be back in lockdown more than 18 months after the outbreak of COVID-19, or that self-care would be the new skincare? Self-care looks different to each of us – and for beauty aficionados, sometimes it really does mean taking care of our skin, hair and body and putting on makeup. On page 48 we explore the connection between self-care and self-esteem, and how our daily skincare and makeup rituals can promote confidence and feelings of empowerment and control. To get you started, we’ve curated some of the all-star skin products to create a DIY skin treatment at home (p26), share an expert’s tips on cultivating lush and lustrous hair (pl24),…

As a result, many of us are feeling and looking a bit blah,’ says Dr Vincent Candrawinata, research scientist and founder of Renovatio BioScience, which develops and manufactures Activated Phenolics. ‘Additionally, when we stay at home without needing to socialise with people or go to work, we tend to be more relaxed with our washing routine, including our hair and skin.

new and proven treatment for pigmentation

Freckles, age spots, brown spots or pigmentation: whatever you call it, irregular skin discolouration is a common and often distressing problem caused by factors such as sun damage, inflammatory skin disorders and hormonal fluctuations.

In its various forms, hyperpigmentation affects over 80 percent of women over the age of 25. If you’re a sufferer, you’ll know pigmentation is…
