The latest trending on All I’ve Heard sees designers moving away from sky-high, painfully skinny stilettos, opting instead for what we like to call the Slide effect. These shoes are flat, masculine, and cool.

Designers like Cèline, Chloé, and Marni have taken to an expansion on the trend, with the pool slide. Instead of the thick double straps the Birkenstock sandals made so iconic, these are more an homage to the rubber Adidas numbers every teenage boy who’s ever lived has, at one time or another, proudly worn. Except that Chloé’s version, for example, will cost you a pretty $840.

Cocos Nucifera Oil (Coconut Oil)

+ Nourishes Skin, Coconut oil takes care of this aspect due to the presence of medium chain fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Lauric Acid and Vitamin-E

+ Protects skin, The stable, saturated fats of coconut oil form a protective layer over the skin, extensively cutting down damage due to over exposure to the sun

+ Fights infections, Thanks to the antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties of fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid, Caproic Acid, Myristic Acid and Lauric Acid present in Coconut Oil, your skin is guarded against infections

+ Retains Moisture, The stable saturated fats reduce the loss of moisture from the skin considerably by forming nourishing layer on the skin

+ Soothes and Conditions the Skin, Coconut oil soothes skin in case of possible inflammation resulting from strong sun, dust, allergenic particles, or other environmental factors. It also keeps skin smooth and gives it a shiny glow

+ Tones and tightens, The properties in coconut oil can assist in reducing cellulite and premature ageing, keeping your skin tight and toned

 

Olea Europaea (Olive Oil)

+ Olive oil is packed with antioxidants, the body’s built-in defence against free radicals.

Free radicals lead to a loss of collagen and elastin, two things in your skin that keep you looking young. This tells us that olive oil is a great natural weapon in the battle against the effects of premature aging.

 

Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed oil

+ Grape Seed oil is just what it sounds like – it is the oil extracted from seeds of grapes. Though the extraction process for these oils sounds complicated, what they do for your skin is very simple: Grape seed oil can treat acne, reduce dark under-eye circles, moisturize and tighten your skin.

 

Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) oil

+ Jojoba oil has many organic and mineral properties, making it the perfect raw skin food to help you keep that natural glow. It helps to fight facial lines, skin scarring and fatty tissue. It is also amazing in challenging skin circumstances like acne, eczema and psoriasis.

+ Jojoba oil relieves aggravated skin and improves the natural development of collagen. (Yes babes, we said collagen). It also offers efficient protection towards the sun and fights the symptoms of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

 

Aqua (water)

+ Water is essential to maintain the optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. It replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines.

+ Aqua keeps the skin well hydrated and glistening, thereby, enhancing that golden glow.

Australian swimwear label Zimmermann is continuing its global reign with the release of the label’s Resort Swim 2015 campaign.

Setting sail amongst the waters of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, the campaign captures the sleek sophistication and relaxed sensuality of the collection. Fashion photographer Darren McDonald shot the collection, in which his images encapsulated the modern bohemian spirit of the Zimmermann woman perfectly.

The new collection is heavily influenced by the 70s, with an elegant yet easy to wear aesthetic. The designs might on first glance seem playful and carefree, yet in true Zimmermann style, they are intricately detailed with corseted structure, sheer mesh panelling and custom trimmings. With collections like these, it’s not hard to see why Zimmermann remains front and centre on the global swimwear scale.

“You shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t eat”

This is the SALT attitude, and for a beach bum like me, I think it’s a pretty spot on way of thinking.

SALT  believes in loving and nourishing your skin and body. Their products feed your skin with vitamins and minerals straight from Mother Earth, so you know you’re doing yourself a favour.

Here is a list of the nasty ingredients you will NOT see in any SALT products:

Fragrances
this is a broad term to cover hundreds of synthetic compounds and chemicals used to enhance or mask the smell of a beauty product. Many of these have been found to be Neurotoxins. Phthalates are one of the types chemicals used, this has been connected with hormone and fertility issues. Many people are allergic to fragrances causing allergies, skin irritation and immune system damage.

Mineral Oils
Mineral oils are derived from petroleum, this is fossilised fuel used to also make crude oil for petrol, plastics and other synthetic products. It is often used in skincare products as a preservative due to its affordability. Mineral oils can block the pores in the skin, this inhibits the skin to ‘breathe’, interfering with the ability to eliminate toxins and blocking sweat and oil glands. Due to this it is a major contributor to acne and uneven skin tone.

Alcohol
Ethanol can strip the skin of natural oils, this drys the skin out leaving the dermal barrier susceptible to absorb other chemicals from the environment such as pollution. By drying out the skin this also contributes to premature ageing.

Parabens
Avoid any ingredient with this word eg. methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben. Research as shown it is associated with Oestrogen imbalances and other hormonal issues such as skin problems, it also is now shown to be linked with cancers.

Artificial Colours
Are toxic to the skin and can cause allergic reactions and rashes. Your skin will absorb these chemicals, which can then make their way into the blood stream and may cause hormonal disruption and other health issues.
