With the bridge between plastic surgery and dermatology getting smaller by the year, and the rise of social media fuelling a demand for less invasive, more natural ‘selfie’ worthy results; our obsession with all things anti-ageing is showing no signs of waning.
I remember a time when many of us (sadly myself not included), avoided faux tanners like the plaque, for fear (and rightly so) of looking like President Trump’s doppelganger! In stead (and yes, sadly I am guilty of this also), we would lie out slathered in factor 0 oil and bake.
Few of us would doubt the therapeutic benefits of a great shower, from helping us face the day ahead, to washing away the day’s worries. But the harsh water found in many areas, can mean our therapeutic showers, have some not so therapeutic qualities.
Cold weather, aging skin and a lack of exfoliation can leave your skin looking dull and lifeless but with only a few weeks left of winter, there’s no better time to give you skin a much needed spring clean.
On first appearances the Hiro Miyoshi salon does everything right. Centrally located in London’s Mayfair, it’s sleek minimal interior and stylish, friendly staff are exactly what you would expect from a top London salon with an international, celebrity and Royal clientele.
Growing up, whenever my mother wanted to remind of us the sacrifices she had made for my siblings and I (which she insisted on doing on a regular basis), she would lift up her top and show us the multitude of stretch marks and loose skin imparted on her through pregnancy.
Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la…
If you’re yet to do your christmas shop don’t fret. I’ve spent the last few months trawling through a pile of festive goodies to find the very best of whats out there to ensure that everyone has a very jolly christmas.
Is your skin looking a little lack luster of late? Whether it’s a change in season, too much sun, poor diet or in my case too many late nights to count (nope I haven’t spent the summer in Ibiza, I’ve just been up feeding a newborn!), there are multiple factors that can leave our skin more lacking than lustful.
I’m regularly sent beauty products to review that come with some pretty impressive claims. Most fail to live up to expectation, yet every now and then I come across a product that, if you can believe it, actually does what it said on the bottle!
Can’t stand tights but the thought of flashing your pins breaks you out in cold sweats? With the warm weather showing no signs of waning, I’ve selected 8 fail safe products guaranteed to make even the even the most sun shy of legs look flawless.
Who doesn’t love the transforming effects of a bold lip. Creating maximum impact with minimal effort, a bold lip can take you’re look from ‘crazy mum’ to ‘effortlessly stylish’ with a swish of a stick.
As a beauty obsessive who loves to keep stubble free at all times (or at least tries to), I have long been a fan of epilating. It’s quick, effective, produces results that last for weeks and although admittedly can be rather painful at times, a lot more convenient than having to visit a salon every few weeks.
Tucked away behind a discreet black door, in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia lays Pfeffer Sal, a cutting-edge new clinic steadily making a name for itself, partly in thanks to it’s exclusive Copper Ultra Revive facial.
An essential part of your daily skin regime, the right cleanser will not only leave your skin perfectly clean and clear but will improve skin texture, fight off the years and reverse the daily effects of dirt and make-up on your skin.
No matter what you’re opinion of the Kardashian’s, with their access to some of the worlds top skincare experts, no one can deny they know a thing or two about beauty.
So when super hot, mum of three Kourtney Kardashian let slip that the secret to her youthful skin is sleeping on a satin pillow, it only cemented what I already knew… my fresh white linen pillowcases (the ones I love so much) could be ruining my looks! Insert ‘hysterically crying’ emoji here.
With this weekend set to reach highs of 25 degrees, its time to starting thinking about protecting ourselves and our little ones from those harmful UVA and UVB rays. Not only are they incredibly ageing, causing dehydrated skin and premature wrinkles but the suns rays are also the number one cause of skin cancer.
One of the joys of working in the beauty industry is getting to test out a huge range of beauty products (I know, stating the obvious here). Yet if truth be told, most of the products out there don’t do a whole lot. Which is why I (and you may have noticed) keep going back to a few key brands that I know I can rely on to produce to the goods. There are occasions however, when I stumble across a new range of product that really deserves shouting about.
