LONDON/GDANSK/KAZAKHSTAN, Sept 21 (Reuters) – Seyda Bal, who works at a bank in Istanbul, is so worried about rising grocery prices that she has fallen into a pandemic-era habit: hoard packaged goods like coffee and toilet paper.

“I buy a lot of staples like oil, pasta, rice, tahini, molasses…thinking that next month they will cost twice as much,” says Bal, 27. .

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has pushed energy and grain prices to unprecedented levels, driving up the cost of packaged goods. This has been felt particularly acutely in parts of Asia and North Africa, where people spend a higher proportion of their income on food and fuel than in the United States and Europe. which prompted some shoppers to stock up on non-perishable items.

The trend has not gone unnoticed at Nestlé (NESN.S), the world’s largest packaged food company and home to more than 2,000 brands including Cheerios, Nescafe and Maggi.

The Swiss group is adapting its product lines in the region to “make them more meaningful for the consumer”, and is considering whether to make certain products “more affordable”, according to Karim Al Bitar, head of consumer research and market intelligence at Nestle’s Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Unit.

This could include increasing the size of packaging and switching to cheaper ingredients.

“Nestlé sees hoarding with broth, to some extent soups, coffee for sure,” Al Bitar told Reuters.

Maggi products and Nescafé coffee sachets are among the popular products for storage, he added.

Nestlé is working with local partners to overcome supply issues and has so far managed to keep stock on shelves, the company said in an emailed statement.

The MENA region contributes more than 4%, or 3.7 billion Swiss francs ($3.9 billion), to Nestlé’s annual sales. The region that includes Central Asia accounts for around 9%, or 8 billion francs.


Shoppers are spending less on non-essentials such as electronics, clothing and household items, while demand for packaged food and personal care items is on the rise, said Hani Weiss, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Retail, which manages more than 450 Carrefour stores in 16 countries. in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

“What does that tell us people are worried about? Inventory availability,” Weiss said, adding that the retailer was seeing inflation around 9.5% on average and particular pressure in countries such as Egypt, Kenya and Georgia.

Several countries in North Africa and Central Asia suffer from recurrent shortages of basic necessities. Euromonitor International analyst Kamile Botyriute said people in Tunisia, Algeria, Libya and Morocco were struggling to find flour, sugar and baked goods. In August, some stores in Tunisia began rationing items to prevent consumers from hoarding, Botyriute said.

“I bought about 10 bags of 50 kilograms of flour and as much sugar,” said Eldar, 28, an entrepreneur based in Almaty, Kazakhstan. “There are rumors that sugar shortages are expected and I wanted to have a stock.”

In the same town, Ivan, 47, a furniture designer, said: “Prices can go up, the dollar (exchange rate) can go up. I’ll have to pay more later.”


Inflation is rising at a faster rate in many Central Asian and North African countries than in North America or Europe, where consumer price growth in the 19 countries sharing the euro s accelerated to reach 8.9% in July.

Turkey’s annual inflation hit a 24-year high of 80% in August, while Egypt’s accelerated to 13.6% in July. In many cases, weakening local currencies increase import costs.

“In Turkey, consumers are adjusting to the reality of extremely high inflation. Despite higher prices, we are seeing consumer demand and market volumes holding up, in part due to the burden of custody. eat,” Unilever CEO Alan Jope told ULVR.L in July.

Sinem Ozel, 31, a marketing expert living in Istanbul, stocked up on items such as oil, toilet paper, pasta, sugar and dishwasher detergent. She used to spend around 300-400 Turkish liras ($16.71-$22.27) for a month of shopping, but now she spends the same amount in a week and sometimes buys the three-in-one pack for 20% extra instant coffee from Nescafé.

But not everyone can afford to accumulate.

“We don’t have the money to buy large quantities of things,” said Layla, a 60-year-old customer, standing outside the Lafayette market in Tunis, Tunisia. “Most of the time we have to get a loan from relatives to complete the month.”

What distinguishes face serum from cream, how it works | Lifestyle Beauty Tue, 20 Sep 2022 06:03:42 +0000

New Delhi: There is a whole range of skin care solutions available in the market, both for your face and your body. From oils and serums to creams and balms, the choices are endless! And sometimes those endless choices of moisturizers can get you frustrated and really get under your skin.

Some people are minimalists – they buy a face cream, apply it all over, and they’re done. Others invest heavily in their skincare regimen, layering products like toners, face serums, and creams. And to top it off, they religiously apply eye creams or under eye creams all over the thin skin around their eyes.

But do you really need to buy an eye cream or will your regular face serum do the trick? Are eye creams an expensive fad? Or are they a staple of your skincare routine, as your favorite beauty influencer says? Let’s try to peel back the layers and solve this mystery with Dr. Priti Shenai, founder of Skinworks, a leading beauty and dermatology clinic based in Mumbai.

What is a face serum?

Face serums nourish, hydrate and protect your skin. They have a thin consistency so they can be absorbed into your skin quickly. Another feature of face serums that sets them apart from face creams is that they have a higher concentration of active ingredients like skin lightening agents, exfoliating acids, vitamins, etc. So, by using a face serum, you can expect much faster results than a face cream.

Is it okay to use a face serum around the eyes?

The skin around your eyes (eyelids and under the eyes) is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on the rest of your face. Thus, it shows wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation and other signs of aging earlier than other areas of the face. Thus, you must take great care to keep this skin hydrated to avoid dryness.

Since the eye area is more delicate than the rest of your face, certain types of face serums can be harsh on them. Highly concentrated serums with active ingredients like retinol and exfoliating acids (like glycolic acid and salicylic acid) aren’t gentle on the eye area! So, if you are using such a serum for the face, do not apply it around the eyes. Instead, use an eye cream.

What is an eye cream and how is it different from face creams and serums?

Eye creams are specially formulated to treat (or prevent) skin conditions that affect the area around the eyes.

They treat common skin problems such as dark circles, wrinkles, puffiness, sagging skin (bags under the eyes) and sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, it won’t react well to face serums and oily creams.

Eye creams have a thicker consistency than face creams and are much oilier than face serums. They are also much milder and contain active ingredients like retinol in smaller amounts.

The bottom line: should you buy an eye contour cream?

If you want to eliminate dark circles or reduce wrinkles around your eyes, it’s definitely worth investing in an eye cream. But before spending a lot of money on trendy or discounted products, consult your dermatologist. They will recommend authentic fast-acting products that best suit your specific skin type and will definitely solve your skin care problems.

Myths and facts about chemical peels Mon, 19 Sep 2022 20:00:48 +0000

Chemical skin peels have been around since the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome and Greece. Despite the growing popularity of anti-aging treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers, chemical peels remain popular today.

However, facial peels are sometimes advertised in a way that could be misleading. “The truth is that there is a wide range of effectiveness and recovery times associated with facial peels. Patients are more likely to be satisfied with the outcome of their surgery if they know what to expect. It is simple to become confused as to how chemical peels really work because there are so many variations on the theme, so learn the facts about them through chemical peel myths,” says Dr. Navnit Haror, founder and director of the Derma Miracle clinic who shares the 7 main myths and truths of this treatment.

Myth: Your skin will look bright red after a chemical peel

Truth: There are several different types of peels; some are light and require little recovery time, while others are much deeper. Alpha and beta hydroxyl peels are lighter peels with less exfoliation and redness, while deeper peels are more powerful and may have more exfoliation and redness.

Myth: Chemical peels make skin rough and scarred

Truth: Permanent scars won’t be a problem if the peel is performed by a qualified skin care specialist. Deeper peels often cause redness and flaking, but today there are many superficial choices and breakthroughs in cosmeceutical compositions that calm inflammation, repair and rebuild the skin. Peels produce healthier, smoother and younger-looking skin in the long run.

Myth: Chemical peels are only useful for people with skin problems

Truth: In fact, chemical peels can be beneficial for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Chemical peels can prevent problems and treat problem-prone skin. Skin cell turnover normally occurs every 21 to 28 days. This rate often slows from the late 20s, depending on the severity of the skin lesions. Cell turnover will be stimulated to stimulate healthy cell growth while exfoliating dead cells if you receive a very gentle peel at Face Perfect Clinic, such as alpha or beta hydroxyl acids, both of which are superficial peeling procedures.

Myth: Chemical peels gradually thin the skin.

Truth: Over time, skin thickens because superficial chemical peels promote the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. Epidermal skin cells can be removed from the skin by exfoliating it several times, but they will always grow back. The dermis, devoid of stem cells, is affected by medium and deep peels. As a result, it is possible to thin or over-exfoliate the skin. Considering the intervals between deep peels and the fact that most people only have a deep peel once or twice in their lifetime, this is an unusual occurrence.

Myth: Only acne scars and spots can be removed with chemical peels; wrinkles cannot.

Truth: This is false. The majority of chemical peels have the potential to erase freckles, UV damage, fine lines and wrinkles in addition to age spots and acne scars. In conclusion, a chemical peel administered by a professional can significantly improve the appearance of the skin of the face, hands, neck and décolleté. Your skin may look smoother and healthier after a peel.

Myth: After a peel, if I develop pimples, it either means I’m having a reaction or my skincare specialist messed up.

Truth: Having a rash after a peel is NOT unusual. Peels are a type of exfoliation; thus, they frequently cause the skin to cleanse and bring objects to the surface. Although uncomfortable, rashes are often brief and are an essential part of the peeling process to rejuvenate the skin and achieve the desired results.

Myth: Chemical peels should not be used on people with dry skin.

Truth: The truth is that chemical peels work incredibly well for healing dry skin. Restoring the skin’s natural moisture barrier and improving the penetration of your moisturizers and other hydrating products is made possible by removing dead skin cells.

A chemical peel is a type of cosmetic surgery that can help reduce the appearance of facial aging. During a chemical peel, a dermatologist will apply a chemical solution to your skin. This therapy removes damaged skin cells, allowing healthy new skin to grow in its place.

Health Sciences Center double overcapacity for nearly 3 months, reveals Eastern Health Sun, 18 Sep 2022 17:52:52 +0000

The province’s largest hospital is experiencing chronic overcapacity issues, a statement from Eastern Health revealed on Friday.

For nearly three months — from June 20 until Thursday — St. John’s Health Sciences Center was continuously double overcapacity, according to a statement from Eastern Health.

Registered Nurses Union President Yvette Coffey said that in the event of a single overcapacity, each hospital inpatient unit must take an additional patient from the emergency room, even if they are not there are not enough beds or staff available. Coffey says it’s a situation that often results in patients being left on stretchers in hospital hallways.

“With double overcapacity, which seems to be the norm these days, each unit accommodated two patients, [regardless] whether or not they have nurses to care for these patients or whether or not they have beds,” Coffey said.

Between March and June of this year, single overcapacity was in place at the Health Sciences Center 25 times, and double overcapacity was called 16 times, Eastern Health said. Prior to March, overcapacity was happening at the hospital an average of four times a week.

In its statement to CBC News, Eastern Health also revealed that as of March, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital in St. John’s was single overcapacity 72 times and double overcapacity 27 times, compared to an average of three times. per month before March. .

ER emergency

The health authority appealed for help earlier this week because it only had half the nursing staff needed to work at the Health Sciences Center emergency room this weekend.

In an internal memo sent to all staff on Thursday, which was obtained by CBC News, Eastern Health said it had an “immediate need” for registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and personal care workers. to work additional shifts or overtime at the department from Sept. 16-18.

Debbie Walsh, vice president and chief nursing officer at Eastern Health, called the memo a “voluntary appeal” and said 14 registered nurses are needed to work the day shift at the science emergency room in health, while 12 are needed for the night shift. .

“We started with eight, now we’re almost at 14 – that’s for the day shift. And for the night shift we were down to just six employees…and the numbers are very similar for Sunday,” Walsh said Friday. afternoon.

“Our squad will be stabilized for this weekend,” she said.

The emergency department staffing shortage follows a statement from Eastern Health last Saturday, in which the health authority said it was facing “unprecedented pressures resulting in long wait times for patients.” . He also asked patients who were not experiencing medical emergencies to stay away from subway emergency rooms.

Walsh says people should try alternatives such as 811, walk-in clinics or their family doctor before going to the emergency room.

‘Breaking point’

Meanwhile, Coffey says she doesn’t think the healthcare system crisis can get any worse. She says that of 54 nursing positions in the Health Sciences Center emergency department, 19 are vacant.

“He just hit a breaking point,” Coffey said.

Coffey says “off the shelf ideas” are needed to solve the staffing crisis. The call for staff to help in the emergency department, she said, was an idea being discussed by a committee, which is working to address issues at the Health Sciences Center emergency room.

Often staff need specialized training to work in emergency rooms, and Coffey says nurses on call this weekend without that training wouldn’t be caring for patients in medical emergencies.

Instead, she said, they would deal with patients stuck in the emergency room waiting to be admitted to another hospital unit. Coffey said that every day about 20 to 30 patients are admitted to Health Sciences Center or St. Clare Hospital without available beds due to a shortage of nursing staff.

“My understanding is that these RNs, LPNs, PCAs would be practicing within their scope of practice and caring for these admitted patients who would normally be on the floor anyway,” Coffey said.

“It would allow ER nurses to do what they need to do.”

NAPE not consulted

NAPE represents many licensed practical nurses, personal care workers and paramedics in the health care system, and union president Jerry Earle said asking staff to replace emergency shifts is another sign that the system is in crisis.

“It’s not a place where you can go on a Saturday morning and say, I’m here to do a shift… Emergency services [are] extremely demanding,” Earle said. “You don’t know what’s going through that door.

Earle said he heard about the call for staff from a family member, and Eastern Health did not consult with them about the shortage.

“It’s extremely concerning,” Earle said. “We could have helped them with that, if they had come to us.”

Earle said a more proactive approach is needed.

“We are running out of bandages. We now have a health care system that is bleeding and all we do is go around the province, sticking bandages on.”

PCs say they won’t do politics

Meanwhile, Progressive Conservative leader David Brazil calls the situation “alarming” and calls for immediate solutions.

“We are in a critical crisis now that our tertiary care center here is at a point now where they are reaching out to anyone who might be available to come and help… That tells you what is going on in this health-crisis care,” said Brazil.

Brazil wants to see a collaborative approach between the provincial government and health professionals and consider solutions such as the return of retired health workers for a limited period or the acceleration of licensing processes for new arrivals.

“This is one of the times when we won’t play politics. What we will play is what is in the best interests of the people of this province,” Brazil said.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Tom Osborne believes the call for help from Eastern Health was ‘proactive’ and he is promising more incentives to recruit and retain healthcare workers.

“Quite simply, we need to do a better job of recruiting and retaining,” Osborne said.

“Healthcare professionals across the province have dealt with the pandemic over the past two years, the cyberattack, they have worked very, very hard and they need additional people working side by side with them to alleviate the burden, to lift the burden and we focus on that.”

Byoma, skincare for Millennials and Gen Z, launches into Ulta Beauty – WWD Sun, 18 Sep 2022 04:01:26 +0000

Byoma, a skin barrier-focused brand for Millennials and Gen Z, is hitting Ulta’s shelves.

The brand will launch Sunday with the largest specialty beauty retailer in the United States and will enter 715 doors nationwide on October 16.

Despite the brand’s age – it only launched earlier this year – it has already hit $9 million in retail sales through its existing partnership with Target, and is on track to reach $15 million. dollars for his first year there, the brand confirmed to WWD.

Byoma is owned by Future Beauty Labs, the parent company behind Tan-Luxe, Tanologist and Isle of Paradise. The company’s founder and CEO, Marc Elrick, told WWD that it was born out of consumer insight.

“We are a consumer-driven company,” he said of the brand’s inception. “During the pandemic, we noticed internally and what we saw on social media was that the consumer was exfoliating too much. With the rise of DermTok and a lot of conflicting information, I felt the consumer was more informed but perhaps more confused.

“When we looked at the data insights, as well as our own social media platforms, we noticed this was a really big deal,” he continued.

The role of social media in building the brand didn’t stop there. The brand, which houses its formulas in brightly colored packaging suitable for Gen Z, has already gained 200,000 social media followers. Its Moisturizing Cream Gel is the brand’s bestseller, given its TikTok viral status with 1.7 million views.

The brand’s offerings include a cleanser, three serums, the moisturizer, and a hydrating trio kit. Each product incorporates an exclusive barrier-health complex with ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids in optimal proportions. Prices range from $12.99 to $24.99, and the full assortment will be available at Ulta.

As reported by WWD, Ulta Beauty wins with the Gen Z consumer. A Piper Sandler survey cited the retailer as the top retailer in the cohort, with 48% like-mindedness.

Although the brand plays well with younger consumers, Elrick pointed out that Byoma’s appeal extends to demographics. “Every person has a skin barrier, and everyone can benefit from barrier care whether or not your barrier is compromised,” he said. “We’ve noticed from the data we’re starting to get from our retailers that it’s appealing to a much larger audience.” Byoma is also over-indexing with Generation X.

“Our vision is to build the next CeraVe,” continued Elrick. “With the demand we’ve had from retailers around the world and the roadmap we’ve established, we’ll absolutely get there.”

The brand, which has recently expanded into European markets, expects to exceed between $300 million and $500 million in retail sales over the next three years.

Basic skincare products that leave luxury brands in dust Fri, 16 Sep 2022 04:17:22 +0000

Nowhere is the adage “you get what you pay for” less true than in the world of skincare. Unless, of course, you’re happy to pay for the packaging and the chance to smell a little like Gwyneth Paltrow.

Dermatologist Dr. Katherine Armor sees patients who have spent up to $1,400 on just one moisturizer.

“It makes you want to bleed from your nose,” she says. “I saw one the other day that said ‘contains carbon particles that may have come from outer space’. What? It’s just to sit there in your bathroom saying ‘I can afford $1400 face cream.”

And while $1,400 might be on the extreme end of the scale, some celebrity brands still charge a premium for their name and packaging as opposed to the effectiveness of their ingredients, Dr. Armor says.

Forget the beauty counter, consult your pharmacist

“Gwyneth Paltrow’s range is very expensive. It’s $150 for a moisturizer and you could walk into a drugstore and get something for $15 that will do the same,” says Dr. Armor.

Dermatologist Dr. Katherine Armor

Pharmacies are full of products that are cheaper and more clinically tested than luxury brands. These workhorses of the skincare world do the job just as well, and in many cases better.

So which ones deserve your attention?

“My philosophy is to keep it simple,” says Dr. Armor. And that goes for his own Tailored skin care line, and the other products, ingredients and brands she recommends.

Priceline pharmacist Nancy El-Miski agrees that more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better.

“A lot of young girls get caught up in the hype of a certain brand and they soap their face to it and have a reaction. There are active ingredients in these products and all of them can react with people’s skin if they haven’t been patch tested,” she says.

“A lot of people tend to use washes that have a lot of fragrance and are really drying and we see the side effects. The doctor can prescribe cortisone and we follow up and ask “what wash solution are you using?” and it may be quite expensive, but expensive doesn’t mean it’s effective and good for your skin.

Doctors prescribe cortisone for allergies and conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and contact dermatitis.

What you don’t want is a skincare product that aggravates these conditions.

So where to start ? According to Dr. Armour, first on the skincare list should be sunscreen.

“A really good 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen that they like to use every day on their face and neck. It’s non-negotiable,” she says.

Dr. Armor and Dr. El-Miski both love La Roche-Posey.

“La Roche-Posey is a luxury French product but tested by dermatologists and they have this evidence base. It’s a great product for sensitive skin,” says Dr. El-Misky. “It’s about $20 to $50 or $60 for a product. This would be my number one day and night cream and sunscreen.

Which “active ingredients” are at the height of fashion?

Niacinamide is an antioxidant that stimulates collagen production, appears to improve appearance people with acneand it is proven to work as a skin lightening compound.

Products containing vitamin C, astaxanthin Where ferrulic acid (which stabilizes vitamin C) can help protect against UV rays, so are useful for day creams in particular.

And no anti-aging or anti-wrinkle treatment would be complete without retinol.

Retinol is a type of retinoid made from vitamin A. Where many products for mature skin slough off dead skin cells, retinol is made up of small molecules that penetrate deep below the outer layer of the skin to your dermis where it helps neutralize free radicals. .

This has the effect of stimulating the production of elastin and collagen, which creates the “plumping” effect that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and large pores.

Dr. El-Miski loves UK cult brand’s retinol treatment No7which sells for between $30 and $40.

Read the label

Products containing alpha hydroxy acidor for sensitive skin, polyhydroxy acids, are also on Dr. Armour’s list of ingredients to look for, for their moisturizing and softening properties.

But the trick is to find a product that contains the active ingredients in useful amounts.

“More and more now, I find that the more premium the brand, the more smoke and mirrors. For many of them, you can’t even find an ingredient list on their website,” says Dr. Armor.

His rule of thumb is to note where the ingredient appears on the side of the product.

“If it’s in the first half of the ingredient list, it’s a reasonable concentration. Further down, it’s a bit of a Hail Mary,” she says.

Both Dr. El-Miski and Dr. Armor cite the ordinary as an upfront brand about its ingredients and at a good price.

“The Ordinary is a very, very cheap but very effective product,” says Dr. El-Miski.

“They are just fantastic, they are great products,” agrees Dr. Armour. “They tend to list their concentrations. They have a serum that I really like. They are unusual and I think they are very intelligent.

Other drugstore brands that Dr Armor likes are Neostrata and australian brand Propairaa brand developed by a Melbourne dermatologist while Dr El-Miski loves Antipodes brand, for when she wants to give her skin a break and use something natural.

Dr. El-Miski says there is no reason to slavishly stick to any particular brand.

“We’re in a generation where people tend to do their research and we’re not stuck in the days where if you were a Lancôme girl, you’re a Lancôme girl. We now tend to choose.

Puig Acquires Majority Stake in Kama Ayurveda to Strengthen its Presence in India and Global Wellness Offerings Thu, 15 Sep 2022 14:15:00 +0000

Based in New Delhi and founded in 2002, Kama Ayurveda offers a range of traditional and holistic treatments for beauty and well-being, including night serums, hair care and brightening oils for the face. Located at the higher end of the market, all products used pure, natural and organic ingredients and were largely vegetarian and vegan.

Puig had held a minority stake in the Indian company since 2019.

The decision to acquire a majority stake stems largely from Puig’s desire to strengthen its presence in the Indian market, according to the company’s announcement. As part of the deal, Puig said he would continue to “strengthen the brand’s leadership in the Indian market” ​where Kama Ayurveda already operated 54 stores across the country, aiming to help bring that number to 60 by the end of 2022.

India ‘incredibly exciting’ for Puig

Marc Puig, Chairman and CEO of Puig, said: “India represents an incredibly exciting opportunity for Puig, and with this investment we will continue our strategy of consolidating Kama Ayurveda’s strong domestic presence and pursuing exciting opportunities in key overseas markets.”

The CEO said the move was particularly exciting given that Kama Ayurveda was now a “Leading brand in India” which had engaged millions of beauty consumers in search of plant-based sustainable skin care and lifestyle products.

Vivek Sahni, co-founder and CEO of Kama Ayurveda, said: “We are proud to write this new chapter in our successful partnership with Puig, which has helped accelerate the growth and expansion of Kama Ayurveda across India. Leveraging Puig’s wealth of experience supporting founders and growing global beauty and skincare brands, together we will bring the experience of authentic Ayurvedic beauty and wellness to new audiences.
