Editor's letter

Welcome to our most beautiful issue of the year, our annual beauty bible, where we shine a special spotlight on everything beauty and skincare.

It’s an exciting time for beauty in general. Globally, the industry is growing fast and strong.

There’s a lot of interest in skincare, with celebs, influencers and entrepreneurs launching beauty brands almost every week. Rihanna and Kylie Jenner are a couple of the superstars raking in millions from the industry. And closer to home, Pan-African skincare brands have an impressive offering.

Movements such as Self-care Sunday and seasonal skincare routines are growing and trending online, highlighting various aspects of beauty and self-love.

However, the industry is becoming so saturated with information that it’s getting harder to sift through the answers.

Inside this issue, we unpack and advise on numerous trending beauty topics to help you make better choices.

We feature skincare brands we love, must-have products for winter, and cover the latest cosmetic trends such as the Brazilian Butt Lift ( BBL) effect (which has gone mainstream).

On the cover of this sought-after edition is businesswoman, producer and media personality Zinhle Jiyane, aka DJ Zinhle.

As one of the most-booked female entertainers in Africa, she’s a force to be reckoned with – and her longevity in her fast-paced industry is impressive.She talks about juggling motherhood, entrepreneurship and life in general.

In addition to the above, you’ll also find stunning fashion and shopping articles to inspire your winter wardrobe and educational reads on careers, personal finance and relationships.
