“Patricia Wexler is my dermatologist, and 10 years ago, she told me to start wearing SPF 50 sunscreen on my face every day. I said, “I have dark skin, I don’t need that high of an SPF every day!” But I took her advice, and I’m convinced that’s why my skin has stayed in such good condition.” – Iman



“My skin is sensitive so I use mostly natural products. Less is more in my opinion. I use coconut oil for body and tea tree oil and green tea face wash.” – Candice Swanepoel

How to click the perfect #selfie

I’m not the only person who spends an outrageous amount of time trying to take a good “selfie”. The perfect #selfie isn’t as elusive as you think it is. Here are some tips that will definitely help you!


  • Lighting – Good lighting is essential for any good selfie. Natural light is the best but you can make do with any good source of lighting. The light source should be in front of you than behind.

  •  Angles – The angle matters. Whether it’s the angle of your face, the angle of the camera or the angle at which the light hits. Find the good side of your face and work it for the camera. Holding up the camera a bit higher than the level of your face creates a pleasing angle.




  • Mood – Selfies are fun and light hearted, so don’t be serious. Try pulling a face, act silly or dorky. It’s all good fun. Take cue from supermodel Cara Delevingne, whose selfies are always enjoyable.

  • Background – An interesting background for your selfie will always get you more likes. While it’s fun taking a #MirrorSelfie, avoid places like restrooms. Sure the lighting is good, but having a toilet in the background is never classy.
