Around the holidays we all feel a little stressed out. But it’s generally a happy time as we anticipate gifts and the start of a new year.

From swapping in serums that tackle fine lines and wrinkles to acid treatments that work against age spots and pigmentation, products that cater to aging skin seem to be everywhere.

But what about our hair? It turns out that besides going gray, aging can affect our hair in a number of ways. From thinning to dryness, the ways in which our hair deals with getting older means that as time goes by, we may need to change up our routines.

Kaia Gerber Sports Moncler on Vogue China’s December 2020 Cover

Kaia Gerber’s body of work just keeps growing. This year alone we’ve seen the all-American beauty grace the covers of i-D, V Magazine, American Vogue, Vogue Japan along with Vogue Italia (twice).

Do you have a layer of oil formed on your face a short while after you have washed you your face? Social Problems and Control. Italians resent intrusions into private and family life.

The national police are found throughout the country. The judicial system operates on an inquisitorial system. There is no presumption of innocence, and judges routinely question defendants.
