Urban Minerals – Mineral Make-up With Soul – Product Review

  I am a passionate ‘mineral make-up’ fan. After countless years in my youth of applying horrendous brand name foundations and powders like poly-filler, I realised how much the chemical-full make-ups were damaging my skin. My pores are very large now and I am convinced it’s because when I had acne as teenager I used those filler type foundations that claimed to give you an even finish. Of course they…

The Myth Of The Low-Fat Diet

Many many years ago I bought into the whole diet industries message of: “You must eat low-fat to lose weight.” I get why many people still buy into this message as it is still so big globally.
