Food for thought on Italian beauty

Leave it to the Italians to combine their love of food with their love of skincare.

Beauty Made in Italy is a new program launched by the Italian government to promote the awareness, availability and excellence of Italian beauty products and brands. Recently, WAG was introduced to three:
