  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 5 Procedures You Should Consider After The Age of 50

    Comment
    Seeing our faces stare back at us on Zoom calls is making us all more aware of our faces – and perhaps more self critical about the way they are ageing. Women often get confused about their skincare routines when they hit the age of 50 – should they start using retinol? When is the right time for Botox? Should I get more fillers? These are some of the questions women get bombarded with upon reaching their 50th birthday. While there isn’t one single solution to all such issues, there are five procedures that women could consider when they feel muddled by such questions as above, and the procedures are as follows: 1.         A facelift While multiple procedures combined can give you half the effect of what a...
  7. Let’s Face It – eternal youth does not exist: Is the beauty industry pro-age or anti-ageing?

    Comment
    Article by Denise O’Neill   When we see the term ‘anti-ageing’ presented to us with great gusto in advertising, on product labels, in magazines, in the media, and online, what exactly does it mean? The definition of ‘anti’ is to be against, opposed or resistant to something. So, why are we being conditioned to resist ageing which is a totally natural process of growth and self-evolution? Why are we being sold the myth that in order to be a complete, happy and fulfilled human being of value and beauty, we have to look young? Why do we live in a youth-oriented society? The signs of ageing – wrinkles, jowls, laughter lines, baggy eyes – come to us all as time goes on....
  8. Review of BIOEFFECT 30 day treatment serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon With beauty salons closed once again as we find ourselves in Lockdown part two, I thought it would be a good time to try some at home beauty treatments. Although I think I gave a pretty good skincare routine, now and again I feel it needs an extra boost. The stress of this year had definitely taken its toll when it comes to my skin. I am just part way through a 30 day intensive treatment cycle using BIOEFFECT 30 Day Treatment. This is an intensive serum containing EGF, IL-1a and KGF growth factors which are natural to the...
