    Comment
    One of the most effective ways to achieve a more fresh and youthful look is by improving your smile. A beautiful smile can be infectious and it represents a healthier, happier you. There are many ways to get a better smile. Some of these involve a trip to the dentist and others you can do at home. Dental hygiene is important, and maintaining it is necessary for your overall health, not only aesthetics.

  2. Cosmetic Surgery Goes Wrong? What Are the Rights You Have? 

    Comment
    Have you had a cosmetic surgery recently gone wrong, and you don’t know what to do? Don’t worry, here is a complete guide of all the rights you have and how to complain against it.   A cosmetic surgery is very delicate and requires immense precision and experience. If there are any complications or anything goes wrong, you will be scarred for life. So, make sure you go to a trained hospital or clinic that is licensed to practice this.  Research the surgeon thoroughly. Ensure that any before or after photos are of surgeries they have performed personally and are not ‘stock photos’. Ask questions at your consultation regarding complaints or claims against the surgeon or their practice. The surgeon you go with should also have a good...
  3. Facelift for facial rejuvenation

    Comment
    Youth and facial appearance can be amongst the most important things for many women in the world. Unfortunately, as we age, the skin elasticity decreases, and wrinkles appear on the face. Most women try to hold them at bay by using cosmetics and beauty treatments. However, this usually does not have a lasting effect. In order to make your face younger effectively and quickly, increasingly women  undergo a facelift. One of the best countries for this procedure in Turkey. The facelift cost in Turkey is one of the lowest in the world, and the quality of procedures is at a very high level. With the help of medical tourism, you can easily undergo the ...
  4. Review of Nailpad : Great for home manicures

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon During lockdown visits to nailbars for regular manicures came to an abrupt stop – although I have to confess to never having been to one- I have always been quite low maintenance and managed my nails at home. However, I do know how frustrating it can be when doing your own nails at home to balance the nail varnish between your knees, or dip the brush cautiously into the bottle to avoid getting excess varnish on furniture or clothes. I am a fan of beauty gadgets – and the Nailpad is such a simple idea you wonder why it hasn’t been thought of before! ...

  7. Review of Bronnley Hand Lotion and Soaps

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon With constant handwashing (whilst singing Happy Birthday twice)  becoming the new norm as we move through the Covid pandemic, how can we best take care of our hands.  We tend to focus on moisturising our faces – but hands can often be neglected- with the increase in handwashing our hands need more support than ever. How often do you hear it said that neglected hands can give away a woman’s age – not that we shouldn’t proud of the age we are of course! Bronnley hand soaps were a staple in our house when I was growing up – a firm favourite with my Mum. The brand was established 130 years ago and has certainly stood the test of...
  8. How the Menopause Affects the Skin’s Ageing Process

    Comment
    Article by Dr Barnish   What is the menopause? The menopause is defined as a cessation of menstruation for a period of 12 months, and the several years leading up to the menopause are known as the perimenopause. The age women experience the menopause is variable, with the average usually falling between 50 and 53 years. This age group often makes up a large proportion of patients for medical aesthetic practitioners. It is therefore extremely important to understand the relationship between menopause and the skin. Oestrogen Menopause is a result in the decline and changing of our hormone levels. Although it’s different for everyone, the symptoms of the perimenopause average around four years. There are four main hormones that are involved in the menstrual cycle. Oestrogen, progesterone, luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). The skin changes...
  9. What Will Salons and Cosmetic Clinics Look Like Post-Lockdown and What Treatments to Try?

    Comment
    If you’ve been locked inside, your beauty routine probably changed significantly. Maybe you are using fewer products now, and who needs to put on make-up for a quick run to the market while wearing a mask? Now that restrictions are lifting and the world is opening up again, you may be first in line at your favourite cosmetic clinic. But what safety precautions are clinics taking to ensure the safety of their clients?    All treatments require you to be up close and personal with your doctor or esthetician. So we asked a cosmetic clinic in London what safety protocols they have in place so clients feel safe for their post-lockdown procedures. We also share with you the top treatments that the over-50 crowd...
  10. Why Women Experience Hair Loss and How To Prevent It

    Comment
    Is your hair beginning to look thinner? Are you finding more hair clogging your shower drain than usual? If so, you are not alone. Contrary to popular belief, it is not only men that are affected by hair loss. According to the NHS, 8 million women in the UK are experiencing it.   Nevertheless, it can be very upsetting when it occurs. It is extremely common to see bald men walking around, and there are countless male celebrity heartthrobs such as Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson. With women, unfairly, it is far less accepted. With only a few notable exceptions, it is rare to see...
