How a Cape Town It Girl's Beauty Routine Has Changed With the Water Crisis

Welcome to our new series for May: International Beauty Code. As part of this month’s theme, Byrd’s Eye View, we’ll be talking to women the world over to find out what typical beauty routines are like in their countries. Yes, we love French pharmacy buys, and Scandi trends are very much on our radar, but alongside these destinations, we’ll be shining a light on some of the lesser-known beauty cultures—unearthing the beauty ideals, go-to looks and skincare routines in these places too. Following on from Kristina Krechina, a Russian beauty enthusiast, we speak to Aphiwe Khambule, a Cape Town blogger who walks us through her beauty routine during a water crisis.
