Marie Claire South Africa January 2017

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.

for the love of time

It’s that time of the year when we bash ourselves over the heads with impossible promises of giving up stuff or changing our ways. Is it really possible that in a new year, you can become a new you? Do we fool ourselves every year as we commit to resolutions we know we won’t keep? Maybe not; maybe we genuinely believe that, like everything else in life, we are works in progress. I’m pretty convinced I would be a whole lot nicer if I slept for eight hours a night, every night. If I gave up dairy, my skin would look better. If I drank less coffee, I’d be far richer. But I’m not very good at ‘giving up’, whether it’s late nights, French cheeses or Ethiopian coffee. I’ve tried…

The early 90s saw the grunge-rock, punk subcultures filter into fashion and music – no one could have guessed that the rebellious music style spearheaded by groups like Nirvana and Pearl Jam would be seen on the runways of Givenchy, Chanel and Louis Vuitton . This new punk trend sees an ‘I don’t care, I do what I want’ approach to beauty with dishevelled hair or hair completely shaved off, kohl eyeliner smudged into the lash line (as if you didn’t take off last night’s make-up) and foundation-free skin. It’s really all about personal style, as well as a rebellious, youthful attitude. The good news is just about anything goes when it comes to adapting this look. Play with smudged-in liner, liquid lipsticks in off-the-wall colours, glitters and clumpy lashes.…

ten of the best

1 CHANEL CLEANSING MILK R685 has a silky milk formula that lifts make-up and dirt effectively. It’s an indulgence for anyone seeking total skin comfort. It eases eye puffiness too. 2 A gel-to-cream exfoliator, KIEHL’S CLEARLY CORRECTIVE SKIN BRIGHTENING EXFOLIATOR R650 gently sloughs off dead skin cells. It contains white birch and peony, which control oil and breakouts and increase skin luminosity. 3 With a convenient stacked packaging, ESTÉE LAUDER NEW DIMENSION TIGHTEN + TONE NECK/CHEST TREATMENT R1 065 contains pro-collagen to plump up the skin and a massager lid to stimulate the skin and ensure better absorption of the product. 4 Great for puffy, dull skin around the eye area, GATINEAU AQUAMEMORY MOISTURE REPLENISH EYE ROLL-ON R495 is applied with a clever metal roller-ball. It’s cold on contact, which means it soothes…

damage control

Whether you are spending lazy days beside the pool or being a woman about town, chances are your skin is taking a beating this season – especially considering most of us don’t take sun protection as seriously as we should. Excess sun exposure can result in an annoying souvenir sunburn: red, painful and hot to the touch. Sunburn can usually be relieved with a cold compress or aloe gel, but the more long-term effects of sun damage aren’t immediately visible, from premature ageing, sun spots and uneven skin tone to cancer. Darker skin tones may experience melanin hyperactivity as a result of sun exposure, a natural reaction to protect the skin from inflammation. Any existing scarring or hyper-pigmentation on the skin becomes darker, creating an uneven skin tone. In more serious cases…
