  1. Here are 5 top tips to help firm up your turkey neck

    Comment
    Many of us may feel that our necks are starting to give the game away… on how old we actually are. So, we have spoken to our experts for their top tips on how we can help keep our necks looking firm and youthful…   1. Vitamin C to boost collagen production “Collagen is the structural component of the skin that keeps it looking supple and youthful. As we age, collagen production declines. This ultimately reduces the structural integrity of the skin leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. “Vitamin C is a critical nutrient involved in the formation of collagen. By increasing vitamin C consumption we can stimulate collagen synthesis, which ultimately slows the signs of ageing. “To ensure you’re getting your daily dose of vitamin...
  2. Review : Murad Invisiblur : Sunscreen, moisturiser and primer in one (with video)

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I love products that can multitask and make a difference to mature skin.  I am not a great fan of most  traditional sunscreens for the face as I tend to find that they clog my skin and tend to bring me out in a rash – not a great look. I have always liked  the Murad products developed for mature skin, so I tried and tesred Invisiblur and it does  not disappoint.     Acting as a moisturiser, factor 30 sunscreen and primer in one, it is a great product to have as part of your morning skincare routine. I love skincare products that tick more than one box! I can see why Invisiblur is becoming a favourite with makeup artists –...

  4. Heredity circles and bags under eyes. What can you do?

    Comment
    Article by Dr Jules Nabet The third  of a 3 part series with  renowned French Cosmetic Doctor Dr Jules Nabet  where we ask how Botox and Fillers can help rejuvenate the face. In terms of heredity circles and bags under eyes. What can you do?  Ageing around the eyes is probably the most common problem in my clients, so many women come to me and say, Doctor what can you do for my eye bags and crow’s feet? Ageing around the eyes, dark circles, bags, lines, crow’s feet can be heredity but more to do with one’s lifestyle such as poor sleep, too much salt, stress etc. Healthy lifestyle can help eyes look their best Eyes are difficult but whilst eye surgery is one option, it is a very severe one,...
  5. What is the difference between Botox and Fillers?

    Comment
    Article by Dr Jules Nabet The second in a 3 part series with  renowned French Cosmetic Doctor Dr Jules Nabet  where we ask how Botox and Fillers can help rejuvenate your face. Botox and fillers are NOT the same thing, although often administered together to treat the face as a whole, the two products are very different. Botox relaxes the muscles, while filler is used to add volume to areas that become hollow with ages. I am working with a new filler Teosyal RHA a new facial injectable filler that has been designed to take into account facial dynamism. Since the introduction of the first hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers more than 30 years ago, a number of advances in composition, production and applications of the products have been made. Despite the...
  6. How do Botox and Fillers help Rejuvenate Your Face?

    Comment
    Article by Dr Jules Nabet The first of a 3 part series with  renowned French Cosmetic Doctor Dr Jules Nabet  where we ask how Botox and Fillers can help rejuvenate your skin. Well the first thing to say is that Botox is best used for the top half of the face, such as around the eyes and on the forehead and fillers are best used for the bottom half of the face such as for nose to mouth lines, fine line around the mouth as well as the lips Botox is also very good for around the eyes and especially crow’s feet.  I inject the facial muscles with Botox slightly differently for each person, as each face is different, four to eight pricks high on...
  7. Review Cult 51 Night Cream and Cult 51 Immediate Effect Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I can certainly see why this night cream and serum have created a cult following.   They give 51 reasons why the cream is effective . including an increase of up to 24% of new skin cell production and up to 52% reduction in wrinkles after 28 days. I have been using the Cult 51 night cream for the past 3 weeks and all I can say is ‘wow’ From the first application, the skin is given an immediate boost, I woke up the following morning with my skin feeling as though it had received the benefit of a salon facial- 3 weeks later and my skin is looking visibly better, with my crows feet look far softer – there had been a definite...
  8. Does an Extra 50 Minutes Sleep Slow Down Ageing?

    Comment
    Upon approaching our supposed ‘golden years’, many of us reach for the potions and lotions promising to reduce our wrinkles and restore our youthful glow. Indeed, such products are so popular with us over-50s, statistics reveal that they account for 42% of total sales within the health and beauty market — more than any other product segment.   The question is: do anti-ageing products really offer the skincare benefits they claim? Or is it simply a well-packaged ruse to get us parting with our cash? Despite the BBC’s best efforts to come up with a concrete answer, there are still doubts about the effectiveness of anti-ageing beauty products. But don’t worry, because there’s another solution to help fight the signs of ageing, and that’s sleep. Lack of sleep can accelerate...

  10. Cosmetic skin needling – At Home or Clinic – anti-ageing benefits of micro needling

    Comment
    Article by Anthony Kingston Many of you may be aware of skin needling. It is also known as derma rolling or micro needling. In salons you can pay up to £250 per treatment for a half hour session with a therapist. What many of you may not be aware of is how easy it is to perform this therapy at home. In this blog we explore this option and some of the advantages and disadvantages of this approach. First lets explore a myth. You may have seen this therapy done in clinics or worse on you tube. They often use very long micro needles and aggressive techniques and it looks painful or even bloody! It actually does not have to be this way. Research has shown that even when longer micro needles...
