Heads-UP #26: From Advertising History to Pizza Pics

Welcome, welcome to the latest edition of Heads-UP, the teams weekly collection of interesting, quirky and occasionally eerie facts! This week we’ve tried to define the intangible ‘holistic beauty’ and confirmed that pizza is indeed the greatest food.

The meaning of holistic (in terms of beauty) is nothing to do with veganism – although they do often go hand in hand – it’s to do with joining the dots of beauty and health. For example, holistic beauty focuses on prevention for skin aging rather than covering up the aging once it has occurred. – Bill
