When the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Anambra State, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, began the campaign against expensive burial in 2017 in his jurisdiction, many were sure that a revolution had begun in the state. Many residents knew that the population of the church and the canonical obeisance of Catholics to the clergy would make […]

DID you know that the air around you could be damaging your skin and hair? It’s time to shore up your defences. We’re all aware of the devastating effect pollution has on the planet. But while the consequences on the environment are clear, other effects are less well-known. However, they could actually be staring you in the face (literally). We share a selection of products from the high street which will help protect your skin and hair from damage caused by pollution Air contamination can have a serious impact on your appearance. People who live in highly polluted areas are more prone to blemishes, oily skin, premature baldness, a dry scalp and irritated skin. And the UK has some of the worst offenders – for example, London breached EU and UK air pollution limits for the whole of 2019 on March 18. “Signs of environmental damage, such as rough skin, inflammation and premature ageing, can be a direct result of pollutant particles,” says Dr Dendy Engelman, consulting dermatologist for Elizabeth Arden. And the damage doesn’t end there. “Dust, lead and smoke from pollution can cover the surface of the head, which can remove moisture from the hair and scalp, leaving it dry, flaky and prone to balding,” says Redken’s James Pryce from Larry King salon.

Check out our handy guide. Spot of bother Breakouts can be frustrating. And while you might think you’ve done everything to try to tackle them, your usual go-to formulas might not be doing the trick if your blemishes are caused by pollution. Nanoparticles, the most harmful components of pollution, can be up to 20 times smaller than human pores, so without adequate protection they can penetrate skin easily. The Goldfaden MD Detox Clarifying Facial Wash has AHAs that reach deep into the pores “When they become trapped in your skin they can cause a build-up of sebum, which can lead to acne,” explains aesthetic doctor Maryam Zamani. What can you do to combat it? One of the best products for ridding the skin of spot-causing pollution particles is an AHA cleanser such as Goldfaden MD Detox Clarifying Facial Wash, £32. Containing a combination of lactic and glycolic alpha hydroxy acids, it reaches deep into pores and dissolves excess oil and grime. Follow up with Avène’s A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum, packed with vitamin C and E Follow with an antioxidant-rich serum containing a powerful mix of vitamins.

So what can you do to keep irritation at a minimum? The CeraVe Moisturising Cream’s high levels of ceramide will keep your skin barrier strong “Look for face creams that contain high levels of ceramide. This waxy lipid helps to keep the skin barrier strong, which is vital for shielding it from outside aggressors,” explains Maryam. We love CeraVe Moisturising Cream, £14.50. Your scalp can react just as badly as the skin on your face, with pollution being a key cause of hair loss and lack of growth, according to James. Redken Clean Maniac Micellar Shampoo will get rid of built-up nasties “Toxins in the air can enter the bloodstream via the scalp, hindering your body’s capability to generate hair fibres,” he explains. “This, in turn, can lead to hair loss and a dry, irritated, flaky scalp.” The solution?

I was born to shop. No, seriously, I was. Ask my husband! You see I come from a long line of women who love to shop. I vividly remember spending most Saturday’s of my childhood with my Mama and Yaya at the mall. My brother and I would climb, crawl, and play in all the […]

(Picture: Getty/M&S) We do enjoy a design fail. Today we must thank Marks & Spencer for the joy, as they’re selling a pair of bikini pants that, well, make you look like you’ve had a bit of an accident. An accident of the period genre, to be clear. The bikini bottoms in question are a lovely light pink, with a leaf design on one side. So far, so lovely. But right on the crotch, there’s a red patch. The patch emanates from the vagina area, spreading upwards and giving the distinct look of a period stain. Because who doesn’t want to hit the pool looking like they forgot their menstrual cup? The product description reads: ‘This sophisticated bikini bottom will have you ready for the poolside or beach in no time. Featuring a chic ombre print with a placement leaf design on it, they’ll instantly make you feel like grabbing your beach towel, sunglasses and enjoying the sunshine.’ I think the M&S designer was having a bad day, not a look I want to go for this summer 🤣 pic.twitter.com/afbJYkqXJB — Bex Renshaw (@bexrenshaw) April 19, 2019 M&S aren’t wrong there. We do indeed feel like grabbing a towel when there’s a red stain on our pants – mostly to cover up our lower half, run to the bathroom, and sort ourselves out. The design fail was brought to our attention over on Twitter, when Bex Renshaw tweeted: ‘I think the M&S designer was having a bad day, not a look I want to go for this summer.’ Us neither, Bex. [metro-zone-post-strip] Now, to be clear, there’s no shame in a period stain or in free-bleeding at large. Menstruation is perfectly natural and it’s silly to pretend it doesn’t exist. But we can’t help but think the M&S design team didn’t quite think this one through. Or perhaps they’re advocating to free the period and free-bleed on the beach this summer. We’ve reached out to the brand to ask, but haven’t head back yet.

At some point in our lives, humans decided we wanted to coordinate outfits with our picnic blankets. And that strange urge endured, year after year, resulting in what can only be described as a resounding trend. Now, every spring and summer, gingham dresses flood our favorite retailers—and by extension, our closets—and they pervade every trek to the park, every visit to the beach and really, every trip we take outside. The gingham trend has, of course, manifested itself in more ways than one; gingham dresses aren’t the only way to get your lightweight plaid on. But they’re by far the most common avenue into the movement. There’s something about a gingham dress—the way it envelops your body in squares of white and some other bright color; the way the full skirt flutters up every time you turn this way or that; the way your entire ensemble seamlessly fits into your surroundings, no matter what, exactly, they are—that feels undeniably cinematic, and undeniably more cinematic than a gingham tank or pair of gingham pants might. Denim tops are cute, but they’re not going to make you feel like a modern-day Instagram princess every time you twirl—and they’re not gonna look as good in that Boomerang of you twirling, either. What’s nice: This movement has persisted for so long than gingham dresses are available in every shape, shade and sleeve-length imaginable. There is no singular definition for what a gingham dress is, or looks like. Shoppers of every aesthetic can surely find at least one gingham dress that meets their sartorial needs—honestly, they can probably dig up a handful. Yes, even in figure-hugging mini dress form. Yes, even in black. Yes, even in shiny, glazed vinyl. The gingham dress shopping options are endless—or, as endless as any array of shopping options can be—and they’re sitting idly by, just waiting to be shopped. 1. Auguste the Label Gingham Paneled Maxi Dress, $99.99 at Urban Outfitters The perfect low-key piece for a day spent at the park (or, you know, anywhere). 2. Walk in the Park Gingham Dress, $20 at Nasty Gal A gingham dress fit for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and basically every other party-worthy occasion on your calendar this summer. 3.

Swing By Gingham Mini Dress, $30 at Nasty Gal All kinds of cute—and all kinds of comfortable, too. 10.

Jules Gingham V-Neck Mini Dress, $59 at Urban Outfitters Because your closet deserves at least one low-key dress to toss on every time you’re feeling cute-but-casual. 13.

Privacy Please Josie Midi Dress, $83 at Revolve A gingham midi that’s veritably fit for the office (with, like, a blazer or something). 16. L’Academie The Puff-Sleeve Dress, $49 at Revolve Because off-the-shoulder necklines, puffy sleeves and pastel gingham are a match made in sartorial heaven. 17. Something Real Plaid Maxi Dress, $198 at Free People Just enough gingham to qualify as a gingham dress. 18.
