After all, how is taking care of ourselves and looking our best relegated to a specific age range or gender? And why should we be encumbered by what a male or a female should or should not do/wear/use/say?
In these times where stereotypes are thrown out the window, terms such as ‘for him’ and ‘for her’ may cease to exist. Yahoo Shopping takes a peek into genderless beauty, fashion and lifestyle brands paving the way and their bestselling products you may like.
