We all know that shopping for these essential things of life that we need anyway every month can be a daunting task these days. Even with lockdown restrictions eased many people still feel uncomfortable with spending a lot of time in closed shops and malls. This is where MyBeautyKing has been starting to offer it’s customers a brand new service. We call it SHOP and SAVE.

I am sure that you will agree with me, that we all want to save money on those essential things of life and this is why we shop around. Well with COVID-19 still being a big threat to our health we came up with this brand new concept.

What do we need? 

The first step we suggest is that you make a list of items that you need every month and another list of things you need every two months. My monthly list looks something like this:

  • Spaghetti
  • Coffee
  • Toothpaste
  • Shaving Gel
  • Dishwashing Liquid
  • Air freshener
  • Body Lotion
  • Deo
  • Glass Cleaner
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • ligquid soap
  • Shower Gels (at least 2)

This is what I usually go through in one month as a single male person. I am sure that other people might need more or other things this is what this list is an individual choice of items. I go through about 6 packs of spaghetti in a month, sometimes less sometimes more. But I like to be on the safe side and have them every month. It is important for me to have those things that I regularly need at home, so when I need it I can just get it.

So what do we do with the list?

 

Submit the list to us and we will make those items an Autoship order. What does it mean? You select a date, by which you want to receive these items every month and we make sure they arrive on time. This is your individual shopping list that will be automatically shipped to you once a month. 

What’s in it for you?

You receive the products you need every month in the comfort of your own home, with FREE delivery, plus a little gift from us every month to say thank you, and on top of that, we take 10% off the price of your products. And even better after 12 months we take off 15%.

What if you need to change something

If you need to change an item or more items, just give me a ring on 07305-083243 and I am happy to change any items. Please do this at least 10 days before your automated delivery is due, as I need time to adjust the products in your order. At this time you can’t place auto-delivery orders in the online shop so please call me or email me at hallo@mybeautyking.com

How to pay?

All auto-delivery order can be paid by Direct Debit, or Credit Card that we need to hold on file for you. Those payments will be made automatically on the order day every month. If you want to switch from direct debit to credit card or vice versa please call me 0 days before your order date, so that I can make the changes in the system.

Got any questions?

sure, I am here to help! Just give me a call or email me. I am more than happy to help you with choosing the right products for you and if you enjoy reading this article please feel free to comment, or request a new topic for future articles. I am always eager to hear from you!

Sadly, we have to report, that there has been an incident at our hosting provider 1&1 Ionos, where a lot of our emails have been lost.

What has happened? 

Over the last two weeks we at MyBeautyKing.com have experienced some problems with our Emails. We use a system called Open Exchange (OX) which is hosted by a service provider called 1&1 Ionos or Ionos. 

What has happened?

Some of our mailboxes were lost and we lost all current Emails. We have been working very hard to restore access, to the mailboxes and to our diaries and files that we store on the systems, along with our task manager. 

 

Though we were able to restore all Emails and files exchanged in 2019 and in June 2020, we sadly have to report that all Emails received between January 2020 and June 2020 as well as all attachments and files in this time have been lost for good. 

Effects

We are very happy to report that no personal data, no credit card data or payment data has been affected by the data loss we have suffered. The loss only covered data lost that has been communicated in Emails. 

What we do now

We have transferred our crucial email operations over to a more reliable provider called PrivateEmail and as of today, all our Email storage and file share, tasks, calendar, and office applications such as word, excel, and presentation is going to be hosted and stored with them. It is also being backed up twice a day for extra security so that in the future an incident like this is no longer possible.

Exfoliating for Guys

Today I want to specially talk to my male customers and readers about a topic that is often ignored by the hard guy’s out there. Exfoliation! Yes, you read right not talking about shaving or aftershave or how to prepare the skin for shaving – no it’s actually about taking care of your skin. Whoever is spreading rumours that’s it’s not masculine to exfoliate? Well whoever it is, I would say just ignore them. Seriously, though, I personally think that’s just stupid… The world of beauty and self-grooming has always been a little bit obscure in terms of what is a fact and what is just fiction. Let’s get clear about exfoliation and why you’ve not been getting the results you wanted.

Ok, so let’s get factful and break it down to a simplistic form. Firstly, exfoliation does not make less of a man. Fact. Any man who still abides by this nonsense is a moron, sorry to be that frank with you but sometimes it needs clear words.   I’ve worked a good number of the years around the skincare industry and from my own personal enjoyment around the subject

The Science about Exfoliating

The science bit: Exfoliation is the abrasive treatment you give your skin to improve the quality and health. There are many forms of exfoliation and methods available: mechanical, chemical, peptides, enzymes, retinols, alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids. The science and technology behind skincare is always evolving and we have such a great arsenal of methods in treating our skin. It is also important to know that over-exfoliation will cause a great deal of uncomfortable problems for your skin. It’s all about finding a balance, in the products and approaches that work for you and your skin type directly. AN EXAMPLE – Someone whose skin is prone to being more sensitive, should be limiting the amount exfoliating per week. You should steer away from coarser and more abrasive scrubs, tools & treatments. Opt for exfoliation products that are suitable for specific skin types.

The process of exfoliation can be done for the skin on your face and the skin across your body. It really is important to choose the correct product for you as this will have a huge impact on your overall outcome. What ingredients are also an important factor lads, as you are shifting the debris from your skin, not scratching or causing micro-tears. Look out for ingredients that are finely ground into a powder. Flax seeds & apricot kennels are often formulated this way to provide enough friction against the skin to slough and not cut.

It is also great to know that the skin on your face is completely different to the skin across your body. You may find you need to exfoliate the skin on your body more often, due to its increased thickness/toughness. Facial skin is incredibly thinner and with this comes easier tearing and more sensitivity. Your body however has a stronger protective barrier, that puts up with the rubbing of clothes and sheer day-to-day stress that’s thrown in its face (or body in this case). Body scrubs are generally composed of more abrasive ingredients, salt, sugar or coffee. These allow you to really work the targeted area to smooth and buff out any hardened skin.

Let’s get to the facts: Regular exfoliation is important in both facial and body regions, you’ll find: Without exfoliating, your skin becomes hardened, more congested, or both. Dead skin cells build up across the surface and this creates waves of problems towards your skin’s overall health and performance. Remember, your skin is an organ, and like your other internal organs has a functioning system. Exfoliation regularly will aid in the prevention and treatment towards, inflamed or clogged pores and body breakouts.

Turns out you can get spots anyway on your body, not just your face! I really know what I am talking about being prone to spots myself. Keep an eye on places where spots may seem to congregate more on your own body. For some its not the face, but just down the legs. I myself have experienced more across my body and head, than across my face.  So what can you do? Exfoliating away build-ups across the skin allows for fresher skin to form and grow underneath. Truth be told guys; you are shedding flakes of skin throughout the day and night! Unfortunately, there will be flakes that just sit put and become more congested over time. Shifting these dead skin cells from your face allows for increased cell turnover. Something important towards skin function and performance – Each day and night you shed skin flakes naturally, so much just on the side of things.

Those that don’t shed, sit and congest in areas across your skin. Without shifting these dead cells, your skin cannot receive oxygen and therefore its natural turnover becomes hindered. – Acne is prevented, along with blackheads and whiteheads. By regulating the exfoliation process you’re more likely to have skin that is freer these imperfections because bacteria won’t have more options for homes across your skin. – Your skin tone will become more even. With patience and the correct tools at your disposal, skin imperfections may be treated to give you results that leave you feeling more confident. Scarring, rough texturing, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and ingrown hairs are amongst some common skin problems that can be treated. You can work towards retexturing your skin’s surface to be and feel softer. – You’ll find other skin products aren’t able to penetrate your skin deeper and more proficiently. I’m talking about those potent and luxury serums, essences and oils. You’ll be shocked to know that you could be getting more from each one of these if your skin is regularly exfoliated. If you have problems with blackheads I recommend the blackhead remover from us to use in addition to the regular exfoliating regime.

These types of products (which are bloody brilliant & my favourite part) have been scientifically created to delve deeper into the skins layers and travel to the core (where your skin cells are located). They’d have a tougher time reaching their end goal if the skin was blocked unnecessarily… Do you see what I am getting at? I don’t want to pay hundreds of pounds to only have my serum give me a lacklustre performance towards my skin. Neither should you!! – Your skins circulation and lymphatic drainage is boosted. Going on what we said about your skin’s natural turnover. When you exfoliate you allow newer skin to form and grow in its place. Slugging off dead skin allows oxygen-rich blood to find its way to the surface. This then helps to give you a complexion that appears fuller in colour. Side by side lymphatic drainage is also stimulated by the movements created by regular exfoliating.

You essentially help the circulation in and around your skin, which leads to a fresher, brighter and natural glow in your complexion. – Lastly, in a nutshell, it leaves you cleaner and feeling fresher. Have you ever visited London on a day out and gotten home, only to realise you can feel London on your skin? Just me? Exfoliation extracts all the nasties that hide in and on your skin, to leave you with a clear base to work upon. In the process, over time your skin’s complexion bounces back, is retextured, better circulated and visibly more different. – You are manly status doesn’t change after you exfoliate.

It all works like a ripple effect really you guys. By not exfoliating you are allowing your skin to be lackluster, less hydrated, and therefore increase the accumulation of dead skin cell build-up. Overall, your complexion will look a bit ‘meh’. So, it makes sense to actually get into the habit of doing it regularly. Otherwise, you’d be a right fool not to be.

THE BODY SHOP, AVON & NATURA ISO 27001 CERTIFIED COMPANIES LEAKED DATA OF 250,000 CUSTOMERS

Just an update from MyBeautyKing on our partner AVON Cosmetics and their recent Cyber Attack on their systems.

Specialists in a cyber security course have reported a new incident involving the personal information of millions of people. A multibillion-dollar company based in Brazil exposed highly sensitive information (personal and financial data) of its customers. According to the reports, the exposed information was hosted in poorly configured databases, making them available to any user.

The company in question, Natura & Co Group, is composed of a global cosmetics production and sales group with a presence in more than 70 countries. This corporation owns firms such as Aesop, Avon, and The Body Shop.

Experts in the cyber security course mention that the data breach involves two databases with more than 190 million records each. One of the exposed deployments stores information equivalent to 1.3 TB, while the second database contained 272 GB.

Thanks to a leaked report, the cybersecurity community was able to learn that more than 250,000 Natura customers have been affected by the data breach. It was also revealed that at least 40 thousand records of Wirecard’s mobile internet communications accounts (MOIPs) were also exposed. Among the information compromised are details such as:

  • Full name
  • Home address
  • Email address
  • Gender
  • Date and place of birth
  • Phone number
  • Purchase history
  • MOIP account details
  • Username and nickname
  • Access token for wirecard.com.br
  • API credentials that include unencrypted passwords
  • Natura.com.br login credentials including hash passwords

The incident was not limited to Natura’s customers. Soon after, experts in the cyber security course confirmed that the data breach also compromised confidential details about the company’s IT infrastructure. “The compromised server contained API logs from the Natura website, so all the information from the production server was exposed,” the experts mention. In addition, the leak also exposed the names of some Amazon buckets, which store PDFs related to agreements between the company and other parties. 

The International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) recommends that Natura customers consult the company on the measures being taken to address this issue because, due to the nature of the information compromised, they could be exposed to phishing campaigns or identity fraud.

For security, customers should be wary of malicious emails, as well as avoid sharing their personal data online. In these cases it is common for firms to offer identity and banking fraud protection services, although Naturia has not made any more official returns. 

Are you affected?

Only time can tell. We don’t know the full extent of the breach yet. The fact is that all of Avon’s Systems are down and that world-class IT and security specialists are working on them right now. As usual all affected customers, agents and staff will be notified as soon as more details become available. 

How does this affect MyBeautyKing and MyBK customers?

MyBeautyKing customers are not at all affected by this data security breach! We use very good security off and on-site to prevent exactly those things from happening, so I can assure all of my customers that all the data with MyBeautyKing are safe and secure. However, this breach affects the current trading of MyBeautyKing in such a way as we are currently unable to place orders or track deliveries. So any order you place with us at the moment is going to be delayed and it is impossible to say for how many days or weeks this delay is going to happen. all we can say that for the past 10 days it is impossible for us to place new orders, track deliveries or process refunds and returns on the Avon Website.
