Venn Probiotics

At this stage, we’re all well versed in how important it is for physical, and even mental health, to keep the microbiome of the gut balanced. The skin also has a layer of good bacteria and fungi that protects against environmental ravages but that we often strip with detergent and chemicals. This serum from Venn promises to boost that shielding layer with skin-friendly probiotics and cica extracts, while also using niacinamide, that ingredient of the moment, to restore moisture balance.

Coffee Pitt stop

There’s no denying we’ve upped our coffee game in the time of Covid-19. The bean-to-cup at-home machines take a bit more work than the capsule ones, but a little bit of showing off sometimes is part of the pleasure. Brad Pitt — following the lead of his pal George Clooney, perhaps — has become the handsome face of the De’Longhi coffee machines. The bean-to-cup Dinamica Plus is his preference, according to the cinematic advert that sees him pick up a bag of beans from a cool roastery before taking off along the LA coastline on his motorbike to make his cuppa at home. He makes it all look very good, and, admittedly, it’s a handsome machine. SC
