Compared to many other types of facial cleansers, facial soaps tend to have a bad reputation and it’s mainly because of one thing: People say these dry up the skin very easily. But you might want to reconsider your prejudices against the humble bar of soap. The problem doesn’t lie with the formula for facial soaps, according to an aesthetic doctor. “Most bar soaps, even facial bars, do tend to be on the drying side. But the issue is with the binders that help keep the soap in its form,” explained Dr Melvin Tan, medical director and founder of Epion Clinic. “Often these have a higher, more alkaline pH than skin, which may strip the skin of moisture.” THE ADVANTAGES OF SOAP View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rethink Soap (@saltwateratelier) on Sep 4, 2017 at 5:54pm PDT Beauty brands are now wising up to this fact and are subsequently turning the facial soap game around by including nourishing … [Read more...] about That facial soap bar might be better for your skin than liquid cleansers

Time , the most honored documentary of the past year, has been described as a film about mass incarceration. That’s true enough, but director Garrett Bradley sees another theme at its heart. “ Time in my mind is a love story,” she tells Deadline. “It’s a story about a 21 year pursuit to unify a family.” The love story begins with high school sweethearts Sibil Verdette and Rob Richardson. In the ‘90s they married, began to raise a family, bought a house and launched a business. But then the couple took a wrong turn. “We were struggling to make ends meet,” Sibil, known as Fox Rich, recalls in the film. “We had become desperate.” Desperation led them to concoct a plan to rob the Franklin Federal Credit Union in Louisiana. Fox, the getaway driver, says she regretted the decision even before her husband stepped foot in the bank. Thus began their encounter with the criminal justice system.

You know that Human Resource personnel are getting cooler when even paintball is considered passe. These days, companies are trading the cringeworthy and the cliche for the trendy and terrific when it comes to the unenviable job of artificially orchestrating a certain intangible known as team spirit. Once viewed as a necessary evil involving trust falls and awkward games at beachside resorts that too-cool-for-school employees would take MC to dodge at all costs, team-bonding activities have since moved from the realm of the unimaginative to the creative – for enlightened organisations, at least.

WHO Do You Think You Are? has unveiled all sorts in the past – murderers, links to royalty and a descendant of God. Unfortunately for Dermot O’Leary , researchers found nothing of the sort. In fact, they found literally nothing. The discovery, or lack of, left the former X Factor host - whose family come from Wexford, Ireland — frustrated because he had it on “good authority” his clan have an interesting past. He revealed: “They actually researched my family for about three months.

They couldn’t find any record of this.
