  2. How To Enhance Your Physical Appearance the Right Way

    Comment
    It’s never too late to change how we look. Many people believe that their appearance is unchangeable, and they may give up on the idea of looking better. The truth is that you can make many changes to your physical appearance with some creative thinking and careful planning.  Start Taking Care of Your Skin There are several things you can do to take care of your skin. The first step in taking good care is understanding that it’s not just what you put on the outside but also how healthy your body keeps itself from within. Avoid smoking and excessive drinking. It would help if you started with a proper diet and exercise regime, as these will accelerate everything else you do for yourself....
  3. How to prevent signs of ageing hair

    Comment
    Article by Steph Stevenson The words dull, dry, damaged, brittle, flat, coarse, thin can all be signs of aging hair, which let’s face it, are pretty inevitable with age. However, there are simple steps you can take to prevent the signs of ageing hair which can take years off your locks. So, let’s dive into some ways this can be achieved: Get the right cut! Be sure to speak to your stylist about which hairstyle they think will best suit you. Everyone’s hair is different from texture to thickness to length, and therefore needs treating differently.   Ageing hair can often lead to thinning, while thinning hair is a fear to many, if styled correctly it can look and feel amazing, so be sure to communicate your concerns to your stylist who can advise you...
  4. Review: Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask from Current Body

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I’m a bit of a gadget junkie and I when I was asked if I would like to try the Dr Harris anti-wrinkle mask I just had to say yes. The mask is designed to soften dynamic lines on the forehead. The mask isn’t a gadget in the normal sense –  you don’t plug it in and it has no batteries. At first glance it looks like an ordinary sleep mask – until  you see the silicone dots on the side that you place against your skin. The silicon dots are place at mechano receptor points which when pressure is applied encourage muscles to relax . To me, these points also look like the...
  5. Review of Living Proof Hair Products

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   I think I might just have found my new best friend when it comes to hair care. I was sent a selection of products to try from the Living Proof hair care range. Anyone who knows me will know that for me I am constantly battling frizz when it comes to my own hair. It is naturally curly and really does take on a life of its own. My favourite just has to be the Living Proof Instant de-frizzer. It’s a dry conditioning spray that you use between shampoos.  All I can say is that it makes an unbelievable difference to my hair.  It is not a dry shampoo – but really is a product that tames the frizz. Despite my best efforts my hair tends to...
  6. 3 Top Tips for Combatting Lines and Wrinkles

    Comment
    Tips from Dr Emily MacGregor How do you combat lines and wrinkles? Dr Emily McGregor Founder of Story Aesthetics results shares her top tips to prevent and treat lines and wrinkles. “Number one – prevent them!  Some wrinkles are of course inevitable with ageing but we can do a lot to keep them at bay until later in life and to reduce the quantity and depth of skin wrinkling.  Aside from being blessed with genetically great skin the two things that you can do to prevent significant wrinkles are to religiously wear sunscreen and an antioxidant skin product. Antioxidants protect your skin in all sorts of ways but their key function is to further reduce sun damage – they actually make your SPF work better.  These days you can find...
  7. Review of Murad’s Vita-C Triple Exfoliating Facial

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I tend to be a DIYer when it comes to facials, preferring to pamper myself in the comfort of my own bathroom rather than trek into town for a facial. I have to admit to my skin looking a little dull as a result of lockdown and spending far too much time indoors. I was pleased to be asked if I would like to try this brand new exfoliating facial product from Murad. Designed to be used 2 – 3 times a week, Murad Vita-C Triple exfoliating Facial combines three exfoliants : Physical: Micro mineral exfoliants remove dead surface cells Enzymatic: Enzymes to dissolve oil debris and dead cells Chemical: Glycolic, Lactic and Salicyclic to exfoliate, brighten and purify pores. It also...
  8. Could Aloe Vera Juice be a cost effective alternative to expensive Collagen drinks to combat the effects of ageing on skin?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Daily shots of collagen drinks have been recommended for some time as a way of improving skin as we age.  But is Aloe Vera juice a viable (and cheaper) alternative?  I though I would share my own personal experience of taking aloe vera juice- and the impact it had on my skin which I discovered quite by accident! Collagen is a fibrous protein which  provides the infrastructure for elastin in the skin. Collagen production decreases as we age, resulting in skin sagging and wrinkles forming. By the time we reach our 50s we tend to lose a third of the collagen in our skin. No wonder collagen supplements have become a popular way to put back what nature has taken away. I have been...
  9. Review of Vichy Neovadiol Compensating Complex for Mature Skin

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon In my latest review of skincare products for mature skin I tried Vichy’s Neovadial Compensating complex day cream, compensating complex replenishing serum, and densifying and sculpting night care. I tried three products in this range – the serum , daycare cream and night cream. It claims to densify and define skin contours and is developed specifically to address the effects of the menopause on the skin. The key active ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid and a high dose of Pro-Xylane Having used the combination of all three for the past six weeks, here are my thoughts. All three products are light in texture and not overly scented. They are quickly absorbed into the skin. The night cream is very cooling on contact. My skin felt...
  10. Make Up Tips for Women over 50: Video tutorial with make up artist Jo Jewett

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Are you stuck in a makeup rut? Most of us started wearing make up at a time when we were wanting to look older and more sophisticated- and probably still apply it in the same way today as we did then. Make up artist Jo Jewett is on a mission to help women look their best at every age.  She understands women’s faces and what works and doesn’t work.  In fact early in her career she made up some very famous faces, including Princess Diana, Madonna and Bette Midler. Her very straightforward techniques are designed to bring out the best in each of us -knowing where o apply and where to apply shimmer can make a huge difference when it comes to minimising the appearance of wrinkles and disguising hooded eyes. Jo has been a guest on a series of chat...
