  3. 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,...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. Hair: Do You Fancy Staying Natural?

    Comment
    Article by Tabitha James Kraan Organic Hairdresser, and all round Hair Guru, Tabitha James-Kraan gives Fab After Fifty her thoughts on staying Natural There has been so much media coverage recently about Grey Hair and it’s pros and cons, but here at Tabitha James Kraan we believe you should be able to have whatever colour hair you’d like. If you’re gradually maturing your look, why not embrace the grey, but if you’d like to add a bit of glorious technicolour to your barnet, then there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that either! There are some great ways you can enhance your natural tones but the most fundamental of them all is simple: treat your hair as naturally as you can. Clever Colouring Since the 1950s the percentage of...
  7. Review: Time Bomb Larger Than Life Shampoo and Conditioner

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon Who doesn’t want thicker, fuller looking hair? I think that hair should quite literally be your crowning glory at any age…but midlife hormonal changes can play havoc with hair. I am always on the lookout for products that can restore lustre and volume – in fact I often buy professional grade hair products from my hairdresser  to try at home. I was a  fan of Lulu’s Operation Glam products, so was keen to try the new Time Bomb haircare range that are replacing them. I was n’t disappointed. One of the problems I have found with a lot of ‘thickening’ shampoos is that although  they add volume, they also add weight , which tend to make my hair flatter (my hair is long, well below my...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
