Recognise the name? Lorna Jane Clarkson is the founder and chief creative officer of activewear label Lorna Jane, and let us just say, those neon numbers really make early morning workouts just that little bit more attractive. An ex-dental nurse who was frustrated by the lack of fashionable workout gear available, Lorna launched her namesake label 21 years ago and now has stores all over Australia and three in LA. Add to that her book: Move, Nourish, Believe: The Fit Woman’s Secret Revealed, and you have yourself a self-made, fitness mogul. We went inside Lorna's beauty cupboard to find out what products get her as excited as a well-fitting sports bra.
There's been nothing quite as sweet as watching Aussie actress Rose Byrne rise to fame in the States. She's very sweet in real life (just ask Pop!), she's funny, and of course, she's crazy beautiful. We've had a serious case of hair envy for years now, but at the world premiere of I Give It a Year in Sydney last night, it was her skin that had us talking. So dewy and flawless, Rose has credited using rose hip oil alongside an SPF-based tinted moisturiser to keep her sensitive skin in-check, and because the oil is full of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants — it is perfect for everyday use. Click through to zoom in on Rose's award-worthy skin now, and shop our favourite rose hip oils.

It's not just makeup that changes with the season, skincare very much needs to adapt to the elements, too. And if you haven't made the switch to richer, more nourishing creams that will help replace some of that moisture that Winter winds (and cosy heaters) suck out of our skin, it's not too late. And it needn't be a big expense, either. We've shopped around to bring you five Winter essentials that will overhaul your kit for the chilly season all totalling to just $47.07.
The chilly temperatures are definitely serving as a reminder that Winter is here, which means it's time to ditch those lightweight lotions in favour of some rich, nourishing creams. Take a look at 10 additions to your Winter skincare routine that will help to battle the chilly elements and keep your skin as hydrated and soft as possible. One thing to hang onto though — your sunscreen. Yep, just because the temperature drops and it gets overcast, doesn't mean the UV rays stop, so remember to still slip, slap, slop every day.
