  1. 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...

    Time Bomb Biggest and Best Anti-Ageing Collection   As regular readers of Fab after Fifty know I am a huge fan of the Time Bomb skin and haircare range.

  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. Review of Strivectin anti-wrinkle Wrinkle Recode Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon This is described on the packaging as a line transforming melting serum. I am always on the lookout for serums that can really make a difference . Although no serum can eradicate lines in the same way as Botox, for many of us we would like to soften the lines rather than eliminate them completely. As they say, wrinkles show us where our smiles have been! Personally I’m happy with the smiles I have as result of smiling – it’s the lines on my forehead where my frown have been that I’m not quite so keen on! What can I say? The Strivectin Wrinkle Recode formula is fabulous. As soon as you apply it to the skin it just appears to melt...
  6. Imedeen Prime Renewal Review Part 2 : The Results

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon I posted at the start of taking Imedeen Prime Renewal supplements and promised an update at the end of 3 months. My skin is noticeably softer and plumper. I have noticed a significant difference in my neck and décolletage – great as I tend to sleep on my side and being quite big busted that area tends to become crepey with vertical lines – they are definitely softer and the whole area feels smoother. The other area I noticed a big difference in was my lower legs. Normally they feel really dry – despite applying body lotion daily, since taking the Imedeen supplements I started to see a difference after about 6 weeks. I was paid a terrific compliment when I met somebody for the first time...

  8. Time Bomb Mass Appeal Hair Thickening Supplement Review

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Thinning hair can be a problem for many once we reach our 50s, but I have found that many of the hair thickening products on the market have a tendency to either dry the hair out,  or weight the hair down. I am a long time fan of the Time Bomb haircare range, particularly the shampoo,  and loved this new product in their range. My hair is fine, and very curly- add our fabulous heatwave this summer into the mix, and I was fully expecting to be wandering round looking like some mad aunt let loose from the attic. Thank goodness this product worked for me. The product’s official description: ‘Instantly adds thickness, body and volume. Mass Appeal Hair Thickening Supplement plumps up each hair strand, adding fullness and...
  9. Imedeen Prime Renewal review: Part 1

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon We are so used to buying lotions and potions to fight the signs of ageing, but applying products to nourish the surface of the skin, whilst important,  can only do so much . We shouldn’t ignore nourishing our skin from the inside out, supporting the deeper building blocks of our skin. In an ideal world, our daily diet would deliver all the nutrients our skin needs to support, and delay the signs of ageing. Due to an underlying health condition, I tend to follow a fairly healthy anti-inflammatory diet ( I eat a lot of salmon) but I recognise that this is no longer sufficient to really target the deeper layers of my skin. This is why I am trying Imedeen Prime Renewal. Its Marine...
  10. Sensitive skin – natural ways to help.

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Sensitive skin can come in a number of guises. Redness and irritation, hives or rashes, sensitivity to sun, or cold, or wind, skin itching and eruptions. Whatever the issue, there are a few key things to try which will support skin health and integrity. Ditch the products! Less is more when it comes to dealing with sensitive skin. Lots of otherwise wonderful ingredients such as fragrant essential oils, pore cleansing acids, and skin smoothing butters can all contribute to overload to sensitive skin. Keep skin care basic and once you have peeled back the number of products you use, introduce new products slowly and with caution. A good quality microfibre cloth and warm (never hot) water is...
