    Why is my steamer alarming?

    Was doing a facial the other day when to my horror, it started making the most horrendous loud beep sound and stopped working. Has this happened to anyone else before and is it easy to fix? I bought it ages ago whilst training and cannot remember where I bought it from. Thanks. :)

    Breakouts around hairline but mega dry nose?

    Hey Geeks, I'm a skin geek myself and am ashamed to say I'm perplexed by my own skin. I'm assuming it's hormones, as skins not been this bad since my teenage years and as I've recently got the coil I've put 2 and 2 together, but I don't know what to do about it. I use a combination skin...
