SPRINGExfoliating will help to remove that dead skin that built up over the winter months and will restore a fresh glow to your skin. Although it may still be cold at the beginning of spring, it is actually vital that you are removing dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. We suggest gently exfoliating once a week using the HOMMAGE Face Mask as its formula flushes out toxins and dirt that can reside at deeper levels of the skin's barrier...

The first steel-edged cut throat razors were manufactured in Sheffield in 1680...

What is the science behind ageing? While prevention of ageing begins to feel more and more like a race against time or a quest to turn the clock back, understanding the actual process of ageing remains unknown to many. Which leads me to ask: Why are we so fearful of something that is unknown to so many of us? Our pursuit of youthfulness is best represented through the pages of myth and legend. Stories of the Fountain of Youth, for...

Travel may well broaden the mind, but there’s no doubt it can play havoc on one’s skin. Changing climates, air-conditioned lounges, aeroplane cabins and train carriages, as well as the inevitable lack of sleep and stress which comes with long-distance travel, will all take their toll on our face.
