What Is Dry Skin Brushing (And Why Should I Do It)?

Meghan Telpner | May 6, 2016 | Canada Style
When it comes to skin care, we think that washing with soap is the best option, but there is actually a better way to cleanse and nourish our skin for a healthy glow, softness,and optimal moisture/oil balance. Though I couldn't find any reliable studies, rumour has it with regular dry skin brushing every day for three months you might just see a reduction in cellulite.

Spring's Freshest Home Décor Trend Is White And Bright

David Leonhardt | May 5, 2016 | Canada Style
Make your 2,500-square-foot home grow to 3,000 square feet just by painting the walls a lighter shade. That's the spring 2016 home décor trend. Sure, it's an optical illusion. But does that matter?

Regulators Turn A Blind Eye To Animal Suffering

Camille Labchuk | May 5, 2016 | Canada Living
Canada Goose and Moose Knuckles: Both use fur trim, both charge a hefty price for their luxury jackets ($600 to $1,000), and both are allegedly deceiving consumers about the true nature of the products they're peddling. But the authorities are only taking action against one of them. What gives?

Sustainable Fashion Needs A Consumer Revolution

Jenica Chuahiock | May 4, 2016 | Canada Style
Interest in green economies, sustainable products and ethical commitments are undeniably growing. But, while consumer awareness for sustainability is rampant, does the talk translate into action? Have conscious consumers actually changed their buying habits to promote sustainability? Not necessarily, it seems.

The Night I Sang Opera For Justin Bieber

Meghan Lindsay | May 4, 2016 | Canada Living
One moment, I was in Spain, strolling the Passeig de Gracia, eating tapas and sipping red wine. The next, I was singing for Justin Bieber. Perhaps it was jet lag. Perhaps it was the parade of superheroes that casually strolled by me as I donned my Marie Antoinette wig. Either way, it was the most surreal evening of my life.

Is Your Mom To Blame For Your Hair Loss?

Alan J. Bauman | May 4, 2016 | Canada Living
We can thank, or blame, our mothers for a lot of things. But is hair loss one of them? We've all heard it before; hair loss is passed down from your mother's side, but how much truth is there to this saying?

What I Hate The Most About My Fat Body

Jodie Layne | April 29, 2016 | Canada Living
I am learning to love myself, but sometimes it's not enough. All the love I can give myself can't cancel out the hate that people have for fat bodies. If we want to be real about changing the way that beauty is portrayed and what bodies are considered good, then everyone has to do the heavy lifting to normalize marginalized bodies together.

What This Year's Met Gala Could Mean For Wearable Tech

Amy-Rose Lane | April 27, 2016 | Canada Style
Here's a question: What happened with the Apple Watch? Yes, it's profitable -- but it's not ubiquitous. Some have touted the relative failure of the Apple Watch as the first dent in a corporation without their resident creative genius helming the ship. The wearable market is stirring, but is nowhere near the omnipresent force of cell phones. Maybe that's due to change soon.

This Spring's Top Menswear Trends Are Bold And Bright

Sacha DeVoretz | April 27, 2016 | Canada Style
Menswear is all about building a closet with investment pieces and less about trendy items. Look for top styles that are bold in colour and cuts, and don't be shy to wear pieces with prints, as this will show your innate fashion sense.

Mo Handahu | April 26, 2016 | Canada Style
With the fickle nature of the Canadian fashion industry, and headline after headline about the demise of popular retailers, it's even more important to focus on fashion and design students. Through them, we may find fresh ideas to help make the industry more sustainable.

The Life Of A Fashion Blogger Isn't As Glamorous As It Looks

Inessa Radostin | April 26, 2016 | Canada Style
Before I ventured into the now growing market of fashion blogging I was not only unaware of the adventures of strangers but possibly happier for it. I did not think that life could be a series of selfie-taking, beach vacationing, perfect lunch eating scenarios. More so, it never occurred to me that this is what some people called work.

The Top Travel Style Trends This Season

Sacha DeVoretz | April 22, 2016 | Canada Style
The best travel looks are made-up of comfortable yet stylish pieces that can be worn in a variety of scenarios. Simplicity is key. I designed a comfortable black dress thinking of travel. You can pair it with flip-flops for the beach or with leather sandals for dinner. Add a nice scarf and some jewelry and you have created a different look with the same dress.

Your Purchasing Decisions Are Felt Around The World

World Vision | April 25, 2016 | Canada Impact
I know that global trade is critical to raising many poor families out of poverty -- as in the Bangladeshi families noted above. But the economic model I want to see more of is one where strong local economies around the world are meeting people's needs in a sustainable and healthy way.

Top Tips For Travel Skincare

Sacha DeVoretz | April 20, 2016 | Canada Style
When travelling, the skin can become rather dehydrated. Often at times, the business, associated with travel can add stress, which also interrupts your skin's natural levels of moisture production. If flying, or spending more times outdoors, the water levels in the skin can also be robbed by recycled air and the environment (sun/ wind).

Candice Batista | April 18, 2016 | Canada Style
It's a very simple principle, any system that is in harmony tends towards health, well-being and sustainability. A system that is in disharmony tends towards illness, disease, suffering and collapse. The same rule applies to your skin.

Society Sees Me Differently When I Straighten My Hair

ByBlacks.com | April 21, 2016 | Canada Style
For the six months that I wore my hair curly, I felt confident. I felt like I had been a one-girl revolution who walked with purpose, making a statement with every step. But when I wore my hair straight, I felt safe. What's the difference?

Elisabeth Baugh | April 14, 2016 | Canada Impact
Ovarian cancer is the most fatal women's cancer in Canada. Every year, 2,800 Canadian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and every day, five Canadian women die from the disease. While all women are at risk for developing ovarian cancer, certain genetic mutations contribute to increased risk.

Turning Style Sinners Into Interior Design Winners

Colin & Justin | April 12, 2016 | Canada Style
Home style shouldn't be about how much money you spend, rather how much time you spend trying to get it right. It's about knowing how you want your home to look, how you'd like it to function and how you want it to feel. When all these aspects are appraised, then and only then can you create the ideal home.

'Dsquaw' Indicative Of Industry That Turns Prejudice Into Profit

Janice Forsyth | April 12, 2016 | Canada Style
Thus, the problem runs much deeper than the name they chose. Corporate profiteering routinely commandeers representations of Indigenous cultures for its commercial objectives. This includes well-known brands such as Ralph Lauren and Victoria's Secret, to name two recent examples.

How To Feel Good About Your Style

Caroline Topperman | April 6, 2016 | Canada Style
Know your body type. I know this should seem obvious, but I still find myself staring wistfully at store windows, wondering if I can squeeze myself into a dress or top that clearly wasn't designed with me in mind. I hear women complain about their bodies all the time, but there's no such thing as a bad body type. There are, however, poor fashion choices that don't highlight your best assets.
