Time to invest in Italy: flexibility and internationalisation are the new keywords in the world of work

Geographical barriers have fallen, and business has become more fluid. The winning solution of two freelancers specialising in localisation services, who help foreign companies to hit the Italian market.

The Pandemic has changed the way we think about work. Home working has become the norm, even in countries, such as Italy, where it was not so widespread just a year ago.

As the concept of office has disappeared, so have geographical limits. By working remotely, people are increasingly aiming at internationalisation and expanding their target market. Customers and vendors may be in different countries or even continents. What people are looking for today is more flexibility in the working relationship, so freelancers seem to be the best solution. Able to guarantee a service of the same quality as an agency, using the same tools, freelancers can offer more competitive prices.

A perfect and protected tan, with 5 tips from Altruist Sunscreen

Skin care, protection, and solidarity – the winning combination according to the company specialising in solidarity-based, high-shielding sunscreens.

Summer is finally here, and it is time to get your tan on, but it’s good not to overdo it! During the summer, we expose our skin more to the sun, and it is normal to want a golden skin colour that makes us forget the pallor of winter. The sun can be a real ally for our beauty and mood, but, without the necessary care, also a potential enemy for our skin, although we tend to underestimate the risks, therefore we should always use sunscreen with SPF30 or higher whenever we are exposed to the sun for more than 15 minutes (not only at the beach, but also in the city).

It is possible to have a beautiful, long-lasting tan without running too many risks by taking a few steps. Altruist Sunscreen, a company founded by dermatologist Andrew Birnie, who specialises in skin cancer and Mohs micrographic surgery, and economist David Westerbeek van Eerten, who works in the skincare industry, was founded with the aim of protecting the skin from sunrays and significantly reducing the incidence of skin cancer worldwide. Because it’s good to remember that a golden complexion is beautiful, but healthy skin is even more so!

May, melanoma prevention month: screening and protection the winning weapons

20% more cases of melanoma in 2020. Altruist Sunscreen aims to reduce the incidence of all skin cancers through inexpensive, ultra-high-shield sunscreens that help albinos in Africa.

May is now considered Melanoma Prevention Month, a cancer that claims 160,000 new cases worldwide every year. The choice of this month is probably linked to the fact that at this time of year we start to expose ourselves to the sun for a longer period.

Even today, many people underestimate the risk to their skin from incorrect exposure to the sun or excessive use of sunlamps. In 2020, melanoma cases in Italy increased by 20%, with approximately 14,900 new diagnoses, making it the second most frequent cancer in men under 50 and the third in women in the same age group.

On the plus side, scientific research continues to make great strides, and today survival rates at five years after diagnosis of the disease reach 87%.

What did we learn from wearing masks?

What did we learn from wearing masks?

Three important things we have realised thanks to wearing masks and we should not forget

For over a year now, the whole world has had to deal with a health emergency which has disrupted every aspect of our lives.

No more hugging and kissing your beloved ones (ok, you know, almost doing that the less), you can no longer go or do what you want, sanitise hands frequently, and, above all, you always have to wear a mask.

We hated the masks at first. It seemed to take away our breath, voice, smile, facial expressions. And during the summer months it was not comfortable to wear.

What did we learn from wearing masks?

Then, slowly, things changed.

Masks have become something normal, even a fashionable accessory that completes our outfit, and which we choose according to the occasion (among the most expensive ones there are those made by Burberry and Louis Vuitton, have you ever seen them? So chic!).
