What’s Fermented Skincare? Here’s What You Need To Know

By now the evidence is abundantly clear: fermented foods, which contain probiotics – a.k.a. the good bacteria found in foods like yogurt, miso, kefir, kimchi and sauerkraut – are essential for a healthy gut and immune system. But they have a ton of benefits for the skin as well, and not just when ingested but when applied topically. That’s where fermented beauty products come in.

Here’s the short of it: When active ingredients used to formulate skincare products are fermented, they are broken down into smaller molecules, which makes them easier for our skin to absorb. That means our skin is getting more of a punch whether that means anti-aging, anti-inflammatory – basically it supercharges whatever the ingredient at hand is meant to do.

To dive deeper into this growing K-beauty-inspired skincare trend, we spoke with Laura Fruitman, CMO at The Uncovery, Ferver, a new fermented beauty brand.

How To Dress For The Desert Heat (Plus Everything To Know About A Platinum Heritage Dubai Safari)

One of the most glamours and certainly one of the most uniquely unforgettable things you can do while in Dubai is a desert safari tour via Platinum Heritage Dubai – I did extensive research and they always came up as the most recommended option and they far and exceeded everything I heard.  What’s so unique is that your tour is done in a vintage Land Rover (though you can also opt for an air conditioned car). You’re also given safari gear, including a headscarf (sometimes referred to as ghutra or sheila).

Platinum Heritage are also one of the only tour companies that allow you to bring a baby. We booked a private tour (which is required if you’re traveling with a baby/toddler), and a driver picked us up from our hotel with a car seat for the baby (click here for the specific option we opted for). It was … Read more

These Swimwear Brands Launched Activewear… And They Know What They’re Doing

If there’s one type of clothing that needs to fit well it’s swim. Sure activewear and underwear also rank high up there, but nothing needs to fit as well as swim – especially in this age of everything ending up on social media in seconds (boob popping out? Bottom floating away? No thank you!).

With that in mind it makes perfect sense that some of the best activewear launched recently comes our way from brands best known for their swimwear.

Here’s a look at some of the standout brands.


Everyone knows L*Space for their swimwear, but they actually also make resort wear, hats and accessories and, as of last year, they make some of our favorite activewear. The brand is based in California and the state’s signature cheery vibe shines bright in their beautifully made pieces.

Little Hometown

I’m a forever New Yorker, but I travel more than I’d like to because of my husband’s job, which is why I love Little Hometown.
