How to get laser hair removal safely if you have dark skin

New technology has come a long way (Picture: Lumenis)Laser hair removal is an efficient and effective way to have smooth, stubble-free skin on your legs, armpits, bikini line – or anywhere else – for months at a time. It’s an attractive treatment option for people who like to remove some or all of their body hair, because once you’ve been through a certain number of sessions your hair won’t grow back for ages – taking the hassle out of your beauty routine. However, like so many treatments and products within the beauty industry, it doesn’t cater for everybody. People with darker skin have been left behind, with traditional laser treatments failing to work for them – or even causing long-term damage. The reason for this was because of how earlier laser technology worked to target h

Yacht of wealthiest Russian oligarch docked in haven Dubai

The man considered to be the wealthiest oligarch in Russia, who has been photographed playing ice hockey with President Vladimir Putin, joins a growing list of those transferring — or, sailing — their prized assets to Dubai as the West tightens its massive sanctions program on Russia’s economy. Vladimir Potanin, head of the world’s largest refined nickel and palladium producer, may not be sanctioned by the United States or Europe yet; such sanctions could roil metal markets and potentially disrupt supply chains, experts say. As the biggest shareholder in mining company Nornickel, Potanin had a personal fortune of $30.6 billion before the war on Ukraine, according to Forbes. But like an increasing number of blacklisted Russian oligarchs, he has apparently taken the precaution of moving his

Winona Ryder Fact-Checks ‘Stranger Things’ 1980s Accuracy on Set

Leave it to an ’80s teen icon to keep “Stranger Things” authentic. Winona Ryder leads the nostalgic Netflix series set in the 1980s, and when it comes to period-piece details, the “Reality Bites” star keeps it as real as possible on set, even alerting showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer about historical inaccuracies on the sci-fi series. “She’d tell them, ‘This song actually came out in ’85, and you have it in ’83,'” Ryder’s co-star David Harbour told Harper’s Bazaar. “She knew all of these minute, tiny details they didn’t even know, and they had to change things in the script based on that…It’s just kind of epic how wild her mind is and how it goes to all these different corners.” Ryder, whose career has weathered its ups and downs much like many other ’80s and ’90s child stars, also acts a

So far, no country has taken responsibility for the rocket and the resulting collision (Picture: Nasa)A mystery rocket has slammed into the moon leaving behind a double crater as spotted by Nasa.

Astronomers discovered the rocket heading towards the moon late last year. But ‘the double crater was unexpected’ the space agency said in a press release.
