Most British Women Have Become Comfortable With Their Natural Looks While in Lockdown, Survey Says

In fact, more than 67% said they prefer a “natural look”—both for themselves and for other people, as well. We are seeing a lot of the natural look these days, as the COVID-19 lockdowns move into their second month. The self-isolation has induced 69% of respondents to wear less make-up than usual. As a result,...

These New Solar-Pavement Driveways Made of Plastic Bottles Can Power the Average Household

Solar panel driveways may soon be powering all our households with clean electricity thanks to this Budapest-based startup. For the last five years, Platio Solar has been developing new ways of implementing solar technology into urban spaces—and one of their latest developments is a residential solar paneled driveway made out of recycled plastic bottles.

What Happens To Your Gut Microbiome After 12 Days Of Eating & Living In India?
