Why do you need to protect your skin against UVA/UVB rays?

UVA rays are always penetrating into your skin when outdoors even if it’s cloudy. They account for 90% of visible signs of ageing. They are also linked closely with skin cancer and can be very damaging for your skin.

UVB rays are shorter and most dangerous on hot, sunny days. UVB rays will cause sunburn. 

When and how much should I apply? 

It’s crucial to apply in the morning at least 30 minutes before heading outside. This allows the product to absorb into your skin properly before exposure. It’s a good idea to reapply throughout the day too if you’re sitting in the sun. Be generous when applying, you want your skin to be completely protected. 

Aren’t all SPF products the same? 

No, there are different levels of protection and formulas. Be3 Sun Protection is progressive. That means the SPF level increases as you apply it again. Apply once for SPF20 and then twice more for SPF 50++. That means you are completely protected against harmful rays.

50 Years of British Style – Mulberry’s Golden Anniversary

A brand that epitomises everything suave about travel and of course luxury luggage is Mulberry. Celebrating their 50th Anniversary, the brand have come a long way since their birth at the Somerset kitchen table of their founder Roger Saul.

Keeping it in the family, his sister designed their instantly-recognisable tree logo – both that, and the name “Mulberry” come from the trees he would pass each day on his way to school. The first designs were buckled leather belts, with other collections following soon after, including the original bags and womenswear. The hallmarks of these Mulberry collections – timeless design coupled with traditional quality – are threads that run through everything they create.

The Typography Capsule loudly reinforces Mulberry’s Made to Last commitments and plays proudly to their brand DNA. The collection offers iconic silhouettes, with a contemporary graphic treatment, in their newly launched Eco-Scotchgrain. Mulberry’s much-loved heritage material Scotchgrain has been reinterpreted to sustainable standards, with the introduction of Bio-Synthetic material – using inedible foodstock that would otherwise go to waste.

The typography design has been created, developed and coloured in-house by their design team. Digitally printed onto Eco-Scotchgrain, the print is textured with the material’s distinctive ‘pebble’ grain., creating an original abstract print.

Peace out Man – Peace Out Skincare

Let me introduce you to Peace Out Skincare, the cult US brand landing into the UK. The brands mission is to help you bring peace to your skin through good, effective and fun skincare solutions like the patent- pending acne dots, patented pore strips, and first-to-market daily targeted routine solutions like the retinol eye stick.

The Acne Dots launched in 2017 in Sephora and have since become the #1 Acne brand in Sephora North America. When they launched in the US they generated 15,000 sales in just one day on TikTok.

The brand’s founder Enrico Frezza knows how it feels to be insecure about skin imperfections. He struggled with acne, hyperpigmentation, and everything in between. Frezza tried more acne products, doctor prescriptions, and infomercial products than you can possibly imagine, and could not find an easy-to-use solution with fast-acting results. His frustration became the catalyst for developing a technology that treated the root cause of our pesky breakouts, not just the symptom.

The breakthrough “A-HA” moment came while Enrico was scouring the drugstore aisles for anything that could possibly clear one of his nasty breakouts. It was then that he discovered hydrocolloid dressing – a biodegradable, flesh-colored dressing normally used to heal wounds in the medical field. He bought every hydrocolloid bandage in the drugstore and began self-testing until he found a one-step, easy skincare solution to treat his acne. That’s when the idea that something better must be developed. After a ton of research and trials, the first prototype Peace Out Acne Dot – was born.

Peace Out was born out of his necessity to develop acne products that actually work and Enrico’s deep desire to build an inclusive acne/skin positive brand by providing people a place to feel safe, empowered.

Tips for Dealing with Stress for Dads

You look across the table at your son. He’s trying to stick cereal up his nose. Before you have a chance to address that situation and avoid a possible trip to the pediatrician’s office, your daughter enters the room in the middle of her third meltdown of the week because she forgot the permission slip you need to sign this morning for her field trip. You hear a weird knocking sound coming from the laundry room — the washer must be broken again. You look at the kitchen clock, and it’s only 6:33 a.m. You miss their mother. She’s been gone for a few years now, and it’s just not getting any easier.

As of 2019, a record 3.23 million children in the United States live with their single fathers. Despite the numbers, single dads don’t tend to provoke the same kind of sympathy and concern that single moms do, but it’s evident that men raising kids alone struggle in many of the same ways. Thankfully, many federal and state programsnow help either sex with housing, food, job skills, and educational assistance, among other services. Clothes Make the Man shares some tips on how to handle stress as a single dad.

Handling Stress

Signs of stress and burnout can happen to single dads and may result in headaches, angry outbursts, depression, and sleeplessness. To combat stress, go back to the basics, such as getting plenty of exercise, eating right, and leaving workday stress at the office.

It’s important to learn small ways to face that stress head-on and reduce it, no matter where you are, because having effective coping mechanisms handy will allow you to get through even the most challenging times. You can use your new skills to immediately start feeling better and to prevent the emergence of chronic mental health problems.

Eliminating Financial Stress

Lots of single parents struggle with making ends meet. If that sounds familiar, one smart solution is to dabble in freelancing. By starting a sideline, you can do as much or as little work as you want, adjust your rates according to your needs, and flex your schedule for time with the kiddos. It might even turn into your full-time role if it flourishes.

The best path to success begins with good planning. Even a small side gig should be started in a professional manner. Think through your business idea and how it will meet customer needs, and choose a name that reflects your solution. Then create a business plan so you can mark out your goals; this will also impress lenders if you need funds. And lastly, consider registering your business as an LLC to help protect your assets and enjoy tax advantages. Zenbusiness details how to get started with the process.

Asking for Help

If your bank account is fine but your time management skills are lacking, ask friends and family to help. You really can’t do everything. Maybe your parents would love to take your daughter to soccer practice. It’s okay to take that neighbor up on her offer to prepare meals occasionally. Check with your local hospital or mental health center about a support group for single dads.

Taking Time for Yourself

Maybe you haven’t been out with the guys in a while, so call your family or a babysitter and go out to watch the game. You’ll come home in a better mood, and your children will notice.

Besides your time with grownup friends, create rituals to be more involved with your family. For example, tell bedtime stories to your son. Even though you don’t know how your fairy princess little daughter turned into a melodramatic pre-teen, take the time to listen to her — resist the temptation to become Mr. Fix It, and talk it through with her. It’s your attention she really wants, even if she would never admit it.

Enjoy Each Day

Even when toys are strewn all over the house and you have just worked a 12-hour day, treasure the time with your children. These will be the days that someday you’ll laugh together over and you’ll miss when they pass.
