Concrete Love, ruhi Rituals and Anti-war photographer Julia Leeb

Hi friends,

the ICC will be reopened to the public for an immersive, XXL exhibition titled “The Sun Machine Is Coming Down” to celebrate the last installment of 70 years of Berliner Festspiele. And it is also the last gig of Thomas Oberender who has been such an enhancement to the Berliner cultural scene during his time as the director since 2011. The festival is up until Oct 17th (LINK) - don’t miss the experience of a house that has been revolutionary from a (female) architectural perspective as well. It is a remarkable testimony of boldness that meets playfulness in order to make history. Impressive work, Ursulina Schüler-Witte (*1933)!

On another note: the job board is quite extensive this time, let me know if you found your dream job in the end. I would love to hear from you via jk@hey-woman.com.

Have a lovely Sunday,

Julia 👩🏼‍🎤

ruhi’s Bauchiol serum was one of my staples in the bathroom for months and I was already blown away by the instant effect you could see after usage. (According to recent studies**, the Ayurvedic power ingredient from the wild-growing Indian plant Psoralea corylifolia is just as effective as retinol – without any skin irritation) Now the product range got extended and they got a total make-over: look at these chic bottles!

New in: The Adaptogen Vitamin C Oil Serum, which protects the skin from harmful environmental effects such as UV and blue light. The Probiotic Hyaluronic Serum, which comes with an additional probiotic ingredient.

ruhi stands for holistic slow aging skincare inspired by centuries-old rituals. Containing the bare essentials for skincare, ruhi’s formulas combine ancient knowledge of powerful, bioactive adaptogens with innovative biotechnological processes to deliver natural and visible results. Unique in their concentration of 5 – 10 hero ingredients, ruhi’s products are led by scientific efficacy at every level. It is 100% vegan, natural (84 – 98% organic) and cruelty-free.

Since I love the products so much, I asked the founder Britta Hekmat for a special treat: You get a 15% discount until 31 October 2021 when entering the code HEYWOMANXRUHI (LINK). Let me know what you think 🧡
