Marie Claire South Africa December 2018

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines. Marie Claire is for multifaceted women with a shared mind-set: they are curious about the world and empathize with other women, and their interests range from social issues to fashion trends. The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories. Please note: this digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies.

‘We celebrate the women who stood up for all of us’ Dear readers, By now you’re all aware that this is our final issue. We are truly saddened, but very grateful to you, our loyal Marie Claire readers, for your support over the past 15 years. The decision was not an easy one to make. As we came to the end of our contract with our partners in France, we decided not to renew it. In the final issue, we celebrate the women who have stood up for all of us. And I’d like to add a male name to this celebration. He is our new finance minister, Tito Mboweni, who has dropped VAT on sanitary pads, effective from April next year. What’s more, he will allocate more money to provinces so that…

WHAT A GEM Crystal healing has been around for centuries, especially in Eastern cultures, and the East is having a huge influence on the Western beauty industry right now. Case in point: gems have become the new skincare go-to. The two most frequently used for facial rollers are jade and rose quartz, thanks to their purported healing and cooling properties. Used to gently massage the face, these tools enhance blood circulation, which aids absorption of products. They also reduce puffiness (use the smaller side for your eye area), boost collagen production, ease tension and make for a very therapeutic experience all-round. 4 STEPS TO FLAWLESS 1. Always roll in an upward and outward motion, from the centre of the face towards the hairline. 2. Use your roller instead of your fingertips to massage product…
