  1. Review of RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon They say that the eyes are the windows to our soul, but once we reach our 50s (and beyond) one of the signs of ageing is the tendency for eyelashes to become more brittle and stumpier, so the window dressing looks somewhat sparse!  Of course there is always the option of wearing false eyelashes, or having eyelash extensions – personally I have never mastered the art of applying false lashes and I don’t want the expense or aggravation of having extensions. I have used eyelash conditioners in the past, but not recently, so I decided to try RevitaLash’s Advanced eyelash conditioner. It is so easy to use.  It comes in what looks like a mascara tube with a small brush. You simply apply along the lash...
  2. Facial Exercise: Four Basic exercises by Carme Farré to tone the face and reduce wrinkles

    Comment
    Exercises by Carme Farré Ageing is a natural and unavoidable part of life, yet many of us are keen to find a solution to help us look our best. Treatments and products play a big part, and facial fitness is the latest technique designed to slow down the natural signs of ageing. FaceToned® Facial Fitness was created by Pilates teacher Carme Farré. It is based around the theory that we work out the muscles in our body regularly, yet the muscles in our face tend to get forgotten. FaceToned® is a natural facial Pilates routine that tones the muscles to lift and rejuvenate your overall facial appearance. Carme says: “By toning the facial muscles, we start to reduce fine lines and loose skin. The technique focuses on the...

  4. Review of the Aqua3  Facial – Detox and Deep Clean for younger looking skin

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   When life gets busy taking time out for facials can fall to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list, so I was delighted to be invited to try Baldan’s Aqua3 facial. My early experience of facials were very much centred around massage and relaxation. You felt good afterwards with a nice ‘glow’, but the facial itself had little impact to improve your skin. Today there are ‘hi-tech- facials which can make a difference to the overall condition of your skin. The Aqua3 is one of these. I popped along to Beaut:Ti in Brixton , where owner and therapist Cinzia introduced me to  this 3 – in -1 technology facial – using three different handpieces. ...
  5. Review of Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon We can get so caught up in trying all the new products that are being launched, that it can be easy to forget established products that do a great job. Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is a haircare product I was first introduced to about fifteen years ago –  and it one I continue to use to this day –  it is one of my ‘must take’ products whenever I go on holiday to a sunny location! A pre-wash intensive conditioning treatment, Elasticizer was initially recommended to me following a disaster at the hairdresser’s where my hair had been over processed when I should have had a few subtle highlights. My hair was dry, and brittle.  A new hairdresser I visited to ‘rescue’ the...
  6. Skincare for Mature Skin

    Comment
    As our skin ages we need to take a look at our skincare routine. The skincare industry is developing new products constantly with ingredients that can address the visible signs of ageing including wrinkles, age spots and elasticity. In fact when asking the Fab after Fifty community on Facebook about their biggest skincare concern, surprisingly it wasn’t wrinkles that came out on top but lack of firmness and a sagging jawline!  There are things we can do to slow down the signs of ageing Habits that affect our skin Sometimes little things like changing daily habits can help. Some habits are obvious,  like touching your face a lot, sitting in the sun for hours and smoking are really going to work against your efforts to improve your skin.  You...

  8. Review of Power Dry Me – can you reduce the time it takes to dry your hair by half?

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Far from slowing down, my life in my 50s seems to have speeded up. I have days when I feel as though I am living on roller skates, I fit so much in! I have long hair, although its not that thick. I used to get away with washing it every other day, but now that video zoom calls have taken over from phone calls , I feel the pressure to be ‘camera ready’ every day, which in my case means washing my hair pretty well daily. Any time saved is a bonus for me. I tried Power Dry Me, which claims to reduce the time it takes to dry your hair by 50%.  I timed how long it took me...
  9. What are the benefits of a silk pillowcase?

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   I was introduced to silk pillowcases nearly a decade ago, primarily for the benefits it brings to haircare, but it also offers significant benefits to mature skin. A traditional pillowcase can create ‘drag’- both for hair and skin. If you sleep on your side, as you move during the night, friction is created as your face moves across the pillowcase surface, created sleep creases and over time, wrinkles. With a silk pillowcase, the smooth texture helps the skin to glide over the surface and also retain moisture and helps to reduce puffiness. Less friction so less tangling and breakage As we get older, our hair tends to become drier and more brittle. Again , sleeping on a traditional cotton...
  10. Time Saving Beauty Tips for Busy Women over 50

    Comment
      Let’s face it: as much as we all want to walk out of the house in the morning looking like Jennifer Anniston, none of us really want to spend the time and expend the effort to get ready. Being a woman is hard work, and maintaining a healthy glow, a fresh face and shiny hair is difficult  ( and becomes increasingly so over 50!) and something that a lot of us simply don’t want to do. Today though we are going to have a look at all of the simple and lazy ways you can improve your beauty routine and look after yourself so that every time you step out of the door you feel fabulous! Use charcoal toothpaste If you want to get a healthier smile and don’t want...
