Could This Controversial Condiment Be The Key To Ending Rosacea?

As a condiment, capers are divisive. Intensely salty and pungent, you know a caper when you bite into one — whether you meant to or not. But when they're not catching unsuspecting sandwich-eaters off guard, the piquant buds have a secondary usage in skin care: Some chronic rosacea sufferers swear that an under-the-radar cream made from caper-bud extract has relieved them of the painful redness and inflammation caused by the common condition.Rosacea affects over 16 million Americans, but despite...

5 Ways The Trench Coat Is Ruling Winter

As the weather has yet to reach peak faux fur temperatures, the trench coat has taken its place as the choice outerwear of the season. And while the classic belted, camel-colored style is still as relevant now as it was in the mid-1800s when British clothing labels Burberry and Aquascutum first introduced the utilitarian design, today's version comes in many more iterations.From high-shine finishes in patent and vinyl and extra-bright colors to deconstructed shapes and ones covered in check, th...

2017's Magazine Covers Were Less Diverse Than Last Year

2016 was a radical year for diversity in fashion, with more inclusive casting (in terms of race, body size, age, and gender) on the runways and on magazine covers than ever before. A year later, the industry has no doubt continued to make progress; the spring 2018 season saw the most diverse Fashion Month yet thanks to designers like Kenzo, Sophia Webster, Ashish, Chromat, and Tome, who all made a cognizant effort to use a wide array of models in their shows. And though designers seem to be lea...

How To Pack When You're Heading Home For The Holidays

Heading back home for the holidays is no new activity. Since a good portion of us have been doing it since we left our tearful parents at the front steps of our college dorms, by now, we've got some semblance of a routine in place. Come fall, we're booking the cheapest ticket we can find (even if that means a red-eye to and from), finagling ways to take the least amount of vacation days possible, and making sure our homecoming will be complete with an already-decorated tree. But packing for hom...

5 Wardrobe Updates You Should Definitely Make in 2018

As you've probably seen from all the content we've created this year for Who What Wear UK, when we find something that works for us, we tend to wear it to death. We're all about wise investments and uncovering the kind of classics you didn't even know would last year in, year out. Just think of the uniform we both established going into our 30s. Or the way we've learnt to actually spend more on certain items that never date—like a good leather biker jacket, for example.These kinds of wardrobe ta...

You've Been Applying Your Skin Care and Makeup in the Wrong Order

It seems like there's a new beauty invention to add to our routine every week (micellar water, lip primer, what?). And with all those bottles and tubes lining the vanity, we get a little confused about which product goes when. The sequence in which you should apply your skin care and makeup in the morning (or evening) is very important. The right layering technique will ensure you get the maximum efficacy of each product, but it's mostly intuitive. For example, sunscreen should go on after moist...

This Dad Shaved His Head For The Sweetest Reason

Riley has Alopecia, an auto-immune disease that causes hair loss in people of all ages and genders. But, as she came to discover in this video, her hair loss should not (and does not) define her beauty.Chels...
