 It usually peaks in severity around age 20 and becomes less prevalent above age 50. Philip Kingsley was a pioneer in recognising that a healthy scalp environment is key to maintaining healthy hair. Philip Kingsley’s scalp treatments address all scalp issues and are exfoliating, stimulating, and soothing to leave scalps calm and refreshed. Used regularly they encourage strong, lustrous hair.

Trichologist Anabel Kingsley recommends “using a weekly scalp mask to help remove dead skin cells and improve suppleness.” The new Philip Kingsley Flaky/Itchy Scalp Mask is formulated with anti-fungal Piroctone Olamine, exfoliating Salicylic Acid and antioxidant-rich Green Tea Extract to calm the scalp whilst tackling the root causes of dandruff to keep flakes at bay.

Anabel goes on to say: “Ignoring the problem can also make scalp symptoms worse. Like the skin on your face, your scalp needs daily treatment with targeted topical products when problems occur. If you have a Flaky/Itchy Scalp, I recommend our Flaky Itchy Scalp Regime. It contains an anti-microbial shampoo and toner, as well as a weekly intensive scalp mask.

SCORE ALL YOUR DAD GIFT GOALS
THIS FATHER’S DAY WITH WOOLIES

He’s been there from the start: he’s never left your side, he knows (or pretends to know) all the answers— according to his own ‘dad rule book’ obviously—and he’s the one who will go to extraordinary lengths to make it all better. He’s your dad, your uncle dad, big brother, cousin, mentor and deserves to be spoilt this Father’s Day. Luckily Woolworths has everything you need to slay it in the gift department!

It takes a fair amount of multitasking to go from work into dad-mode, so make it easier on him—especially if he’s not the best at juggling—by helping him look the part. Great for the office or social occasions, Woolies has a fashion-forward selection of suiting, knitwear, coats and jackets – perfectly practical as well as on trend for this chilly season. And we all know how dad loves to be comfy and relaxed, so, when it comes to sleepwear look no further than, stylish plaid gowns and modern patterned pyjama sets, paired with fun beer mug-themed slippers.

Or, if you’re really unsure of what he’d be keen on adding to his wardrobe, opt for a gift card and let him choose.

Whether he has a sweet tooth or prefers a more savoury selection, he’ll be far from hangry with a host of different tasty treats available. For the wine connoisseur, Woolies’ exceptional Signature Series boasts three red and three white wine options, the highly esteemed Rustenberg RM Nicholson and Shannon Vineyards’ Mount Bullet, as well as a vast cellar of specially selected vintages. Having the guys over will be easy with an assortment of ice buckets, as well as tumbler and wine glasses for any-and-all beverage choices.

And if he is a winner in the kitchen, opt for the Olive & Rosemary Beer Bread Mix, the locally made Hot Sauce and the trio of Costas Extra Virgin Olive Oil (available in intense, medium and delicate).

Or go for the all-out spoil by gifting him with a must-have Smeg kettle or toaster (the black or white will fit in in any kitchen colour scheme).

As for the man that craves a sweet fix, put his taste buds on another level with Woolies’ locally produced Chuckles Tin, Peanut Brittle enrobed in a sustainably produced milk chocolate (with responsibly grown cocoa), and Brandy & Whiskey Chocolate Liqueurs.

But don’t forget that he needs some TLC, too! Bring out your dad’s inner Magnum PI with Longmarket Barber’s ‘The Selleck’ shaving kit or give him an essential (and award winning) Hair and Body Wash with an invigorating moisture surge with added conditioning agents. All Longmarket products are dermatologically tested, vegan-friendly and approved by Beauty Without Cruelty.

Make your gift count by giving him the power to keep his skin looking tip top with the extensive Clinique for Men range, and make sure his scent is on point with Bvlgari’s Bvlgari Man Wood Essence, Issey Miyake’s L’Eau Super Majeure D’Issey and Dolce & Gabbana The One Grey. Or, pick a fool-proof gift set, with options from Blue, Marrakech and Clarins.

For the final ‘yass moment’, make your present stand out with some slick wrapping and a thoughtful card—there’s an eye-catching range to choose from and personalise in your own special way.

Here’s to celebrating dad jokes and your multi-faceted father figure this Father’s Day! Find all of these gift solutions and more exclusively at Woolworths stores countrywide and online at www.woolworths.co.za.

The perfect Father’s Day present for fanatical foodies!
A gift card with a difference from the artisan bacon experts at Cure and Simple.

Cure and Simple, the company that provides some of the best quality bacon on the market, is gearing up for Father’s Day by offering a gift card with a difference.

This gift card doesn’t buy books or aftershave. This is a gift card that gives you the chance to treat the fanatical foodie father in your life to regular deliveries of artisan, hand-cured bacon!

Gift card buyers can choose a number of packs of bacon – from two to 12 – that can be redeemed by dad against one of the plans at www.cureandsimple.com, offering different billing and delivery frequency: monthly, fortnightly or weekly. As for the bacon itself, your dad can choose from five flavour styles or a mixture of flavours in each order.

You choose the amount you want to spend on your gift card, which is generated as soon as you purchase it and emailed to you (or dad) immediately. Gift cards are valid for 365 days; you can also decide when your gift card is to be delivered, up to 365 days in advance. And of course you can choose a card design and add a personalised message to your gift card.

Don’t forget: each pack of bacon is hand-cured and air-dried to Cure and Simple’s exacting standards, the meat comes from high-welfare, outdoor-reared or free range, happy, healthy pigs, and all ingredients enhance – but never disguise – the natural flavour of the bacon. And every pack will reach dad shrink-wrapped for freshness, with minimal moisture, through his letterbox.

This is a truly unique gift to give this Father’s Day to any lover of high-quality food products. Each plan includes packaging and first-class delivery in the price. And because the bacon fits through your dad’s letterbox, he doesn’t have to be in when it arrives. We can even include a (mostly) fool-proof dog deterrent to keep Rover away from dad’s dinner. Just let us know.

Cure and Simple gift cards really are a unique Father’s Day gift – and Cure and Simple bacon is very, very tasty. And they’re both available now at cureandsimple.com

Don Papa is the first premium small batch rum from The Philippines and offers a premium portfolio of distinctive cocktail and sipping rums suited to a variety of occasions – and will make a great gift for rum-loving dads this Father’s Day.

Distilled and aged on the lush and exotic island of Sugarlandia, Don Papa is made from some of the sweetest sugar cane in the world and offers a characteristically sweet and fruity flavour and smooth finish. Please see below for a summary of the portfolio.

THE ORIGINAL

Don Papa Rum

£32.00

ABV 40%

The original Don Papa rum has a smooth and delicate finish that is light and fruity on the nose and features flavours of vanilla, honey and candied fruits. This beautifully versatile rum is aged for seven years and is perfect for mixing in a range of cocktails. Pair with hopped grapefruit bitters, orange bitters, and a drop of Maraschino liquor for a Filipino twist on the classic Old Fashioned.

See notes to editors for more signature cocktails.

THE LIMITED EDITION

Don Papa 10

£58.00

ABV 43%

The first limited edition rum from Don Papa. A dark, rich amber coloured rum featuring intense flavours of dried fruits and cocoa, with a subtle hint of oak. Aged for ten years, the extra maturation gives this rum a potent character and finish, resulting in liquid which is deep and powerful on the nose, with a delightful tingle on the mouth.

THE RARE

Don Papa Rare Cask

£80.00

ABV 50.54%

Only 6,000 bottles of the Don Papa Rare Cask are released globally each year. The cellar master decided to bottle this limited edition, premium rum at higher than normal strength of 50.54% ABV to enhance its distinctive taste. The bottle is presented in a sophisticated dark wood cannister, intricately designed with illustrations inspired by the Don Papa’s magical home of Sugarlandia.

Smooth and fruity in the mouth, with a long and fresh finish, Don Papa Rare Cask offers rich flavours of oak, cocoa and fruitcake with a surprising hint of fresh mint. Matured for four years in American oak casks followed by two years in high toast casks originally used to age wine in Spain, the rum is unfiltered, unblended and bottled straight from the cask to ensure that every drop of the liquid retains its distinct character and flavour.

For those Dads that LOVE the outdoors the Oto Tip by Clear Ear would make the perfect gift.

Summer is the season for sun, swimming, and unfortunately Swimmers Ear. Swimmers Ear is an infection of the outer ear canal and is more common with water exposure to the ear. Wax build up in the ear may aid in trapping of water in the canal, as well as people with more narrow ear canals. A common ear wax removal method involves sticking cotton swabs in the ear. The hazards of this method are well-publicized and include an increased risk of ear drum damage, wax buildup or infection, blockage and partial hearing loss. Rather than remove wax, cotton swabs often push the dirt and debris deeper. They may even increase the blockage by leaving behind layers of cotton fibers behind. They only serve to irritate the ear further. Oto-Tip’s patented spiral spin technology provides you with a way to clean your ears that minimizes those risks that i s safe, effective and easy to use.

Why Choose Oto-Tip?

Affordable and green alternative to cotton tips.
Reusable silicone tips that remove wax effectively without leaving any product remnants behind
Tips are shaped to protect against damaging the eardrum when in use.
Tips are available in small and large sizes making Oto-Tip safe for use by the entire family (ages 3 and over).
One-handed operation – great for clinicians who may want to use an otoscope or other instruments.
Used by: parents, family doctors and pediatricians, ENT specialists, audiologists, frequent headset wearers as well as workers in high decibel occupations like construction workers, musicians, airport ground staff, pre-school teachers, elderly care workers/home help.

The Gooseberry Gin Gin Mule Cocktail Set

Make a Gooseberry Gin Gin Mule Cocktail

Introducing the Gooseberry Gin Gin Mule
There has been quite a lot of experimenting in the R&D department (our kitchen table!) over the last week with various concoctions. One fabulous result has been the successful production of a very drinkable new cocktail, which we call a Gooseberry Gin Gin Mule.

This cocktail uses our popular Gooseberry Gin Liqueur 17% combined with our zesty Lime Vodka Liqueur 24% to create a beautifully fresh long drink with a hint of ginger. This is the sort of drink you might start a Summer party off with as it can be made individually or easily into larger quantities within a jug.

Father’s Day is less than 2 weeks away!
The Gooseberry Gin Gin Mule Cocktail Set would make a good present idea for gin or cocktail lover. If you have still to place an order for Father’s Day the clock is ticking now.

3 Facts About a Dog’s Memory

3 Facts About Dog’s Memory

Dogs have Terrible Short-term Memories.

Dogs have the “gift” of poor memory. Tease them, annoy them. You get to have your fun then within a couple of minutes your pooch will forget all about it and treat you like their bestie within a minute or two! Dogs do not hold grudges!

Dogs have Great Long-term Memories

While your dog will forget that you hid the ball, after making them crazy, they wont forget the connection that they share with you. Dogs know that you love them by how you treat them, by being good to them, you will leave a lasting impact on them that they’ll never lose. This is where their loyalty, dedication and the “just wanting to be with you” develops into an amazing relationship.

Dogs can be as smart as 2 yr. old children

Our four legged barkers have the ability to learn. Border Collies so far top the intelligence category, some clever collies understand up to 200 words! Next on the smartie pants list are Poodles, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers and Dobermans.

(I am sure your pooch is a genius!)
