  1. Imedeen Prime Renewal Review Part 2 : The Results

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I posted at the start of taking Imedeen Prime Renewal supplements and promised an update at the end of 3 months. My skin is noticeably softer and plumper. I have noticed a significant difference in my neck and décolletage – great as I tend to sleep on my side and being quite big busted that area tends to become crepey with vertical lines – they are definitely softer and the whole area feels smoother. The other area I noticed a big difference in was my lower legs. Normally they feel really dry – despite applying body lotion daily, since taking the Imedeen supplements I started to see a difference after about 6 weeks. I was paid a terrific compliment when I met somebody for the first time...

  3. Time Bomb Mass Appeal Hair Thickening Supplement Review

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Thinning hair can be a problem for many once we reach our 50s, but I have found that many of the hair thickening products on the market have a tendency to either dry the hair out,  or weight the hair down. I am a long time fan of the Time Bomb haircare range, particularly the shampoo,  and loved this new product in their range. My hair is fine, and very curly- add our fabulous heatwave this summer into the mix, and I was fully expecting to be wandering round looking like some mad aunt let loose from the attic. Thank goodness this product worked for me. The product’s official description: ‘Instantly adds thickness, body and volume. Mass Appeal Hair Thickening Supplement plumps up each hair strand, adding fullness and...
  4. Imedeen Prime Renewal review: Part 1

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon We are so used to buying lotions and potions to fight the signs of ageing, but applying products to nourish the surface of the skin, whilst important,  can only do so much . We shouldn’t ignore nourishing our skin from the inside out, supporting the deeper building blocks of our skin. In an ideal world, our daily diet would deliver all the nutrients our skin needs to support, and delay the signs of ageing. Due to an underlying health condition, I tend to follow a fairly healthy anti-inflammatory diet ( I eat a lot of salmon) but I recognise that this is no longer sufficient to really target the deeper layers of my skin. This is why I am trying Imedeen Prime Renewal. Its Marine...
  5. Sensitive skin – natural ways to help.

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Sensitive skin can come in a number of guises. Redness and irritation, hives or rashes, sensitivity to sun, or cold, or wind, skin itching and eruptions. Whatever the issue, there are a few key things to try which will support skin health and integrity. Ditch the products! Less is more when it comes to dealing with sensitive skin. Lots of otherwise wonderful ingredients such as fragrant essential oils, pore cleansing acids, and skin smoothing butters can all contribute to overload to sensitive skin. Keep skin care basic and once you have peeled back the number of products you use, introduce new products slowly and with caution. A good quality microfibre cloth and warm (never hot) water is...
  6. Natural ways to boost radiance for mature skin

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Hydration inside and out is very important for our skin. Aim for 2 litres of water per day – try caffeine-free, skin-loving herbal teas such as nettle, rooibos and rosehips. Red clover tea is also lovely for mature skin, it contains phytoestrogens so can be supportive of those going through menopause and beyond. Red clover tea needs to be steeped in hot water for about 30 minutes to extract full flavour, so use a teapot with a tea cosy and 2 teaspoons of the herb per cup for best results. If unwanted facial hair is a concern, spearmint and green tea can be a useful addition for supporting hormone balance. Reduce alcohol intake, particularly if redness or rosacea is...
  7. New No 7 Laboratories Line Correcting Serum- could it be an alternative to botox?

    2
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Could this serum be a viable alternative to Botox? No7 is launching this new clinically targeted booster serum this week. It is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 5 years, and in consumer studies women said that it reduced their deepest, most stubborn lines and wrinkles.   It is designed to be applied directly to the lines and wrinkles where you want to see results. The key ingredient is Matrixyl 3000 Plus….and this serum contains a much higher concentration than other products – 7 times as much-  to deliver maximum results in helping skin regain elasticity and visibly transform wrinkles. In their consumer trials results were seen in just 2 weeks. In week one there was a visible reduction in the appearance of...
  8. 10 Mistakes to Avoid when Applying Fake Tan

    Comment

  10. Anti-Ageing Herbs to Combat Wrinkles

    Comment
    When we hit a certain time in our lives, particularly the age of fifty and beyond, wrinkles find their way onto our faces. Maybe we laughed a little too hard or frowned a bit too much. Even excessive worry has left the foreheads of many of us more  wrinkled than we would like. And, just as our mothers before us, we want to make them disappear as quickly as they appeared.. There are anti-aging creams out there and procedures like Botox and facelifts that can help you get rid of wrinkles. In fact, we have an entire section of our site dedicated to Makeup Facelifts, which have tips for readers on how to create the illusion of a wrinkle free face. Of course, with some of these methods, particularly surgical operations or injections, there is always an element of wrisk. We won’t get into the specific risks a facelift can put...
