Perricone MD introduces Vitamin C Ester 15 to their already phenomenal skin care range. Vitamin C Ester 15 has been scientifically formulated to help boost collagen production, smooth skin texture and dramatically brighten the skins overall appearance. This is a non-invasive treatment with zero down time and only result driven performance is a very special product that everyone should introduce to their anti-ageing routine. Vitamin C Ester is a fat-soluble form of Vitamin C; it’s the ideal therapy for sun-damaged skin as it minimizes discoloration and brightens its appearance. Not only does this treatment target imperfections, fine lines and wrinkles redness is minimized and suppleness is also restored. After 3 weeks of trial my skin has really shown a dramatic difference on the areas of pigmentation that I suffer from (due to sun exposure in the past). The overall texture has been improved my skin looks almost resurfaced; fresh, glowing and smooth. The pigmentation has virtually faded over the past 3 weeks, and without any foundation is non apparent. Upon the first few applications a slight warm sensation was felt however this is very normal to expect. This is the Vitamin C working to tighten deep from within. Vitamin C Ester is uniquely formulated to be fast-acting and promises to deliver results in 7 days. I can conclude this is very true. Results are seen after the first few days of application. For best results apply to cleansed skin, apply only pea sized dots on the targeted areas of the face (forehead, chin, nose and cheeks). Wait a few moments to allow the product to absorb into your skin then follow with your daily moisturizer of choice.

Over the past month I have been taking Collagen Shots. One shot in the evening before bed is all it takes. This truly unique product works deep within to supplement collagen. The exclusive combination of ingredients work synergistically to synthesise more collagen, strengthen connective tissue and arterial walls which in turn gives us youthful, glowing, radiant skin. After the age of 25 collagen synthesis reduces at a rate of 1.5% a year and the age of 45 collagen levels can have fallen by as much as 30%. The visible effects of this process are the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines & dry skin. I have noticed a huge difference on the quality of my skin; it is slightly plumper, has a great radiance and is very taut. Everyone has been commenting on how refreshed I have been looking. It is essential with any type of supplement to continue usage for 3 months before judging its effectiveness. Not only does it work on the face, all of your skin benefits from its great ingredients. Skin firmness and elasticity are improved which help to maintain a toned and sexy body. Collagen Shots are manufactured in certified facilities under the most exacting industry standards and are 100% compliant with all applicable regulations for foods and supplements. This drink has a very pleasing taste, and is easily digested.
Dosage: 10g per day taken in drink form
Ingredients: Marine collagen, acai berry, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin C
An amazing discovery every women needs to know; Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara. This is a first-ever mascara with ceramide triple complex (Ceramides 1, 3 & 6) is also infused with vitamins A, E and E to help reinforce and restore lashes’ natural protective barrier which can be compromised from daily wear and tear on our lashes (eye lash curlers, tugging and pulling on the lashes along with mascara formulas that are drying and damaging). Keravis is a Protein-based complex that helps fortify, lengthen, define & revitalize lashes. Mascara is something that is a very personal preference, depending on what your needs and concerns may be. However this treatment mascara is suitable for everyone, I have noticed a huge difference in the length of my lashes, and it is a clump free formula that wears all day. You can feel the mascara is different to others as your lashes stay pliable and soft; it has never flaked or smudged. I have used this on many of private clients and models on photoshoots and they have noticed how amazing their lashes looked natural yet defined. So not only does it treat your lashes it is a high performance mascara.
It is available in 2 shades: Black & Black Brown
Being a huge fan of SkinCeuticals for many years I was excited to trial Phloretin CF. Having always had great results in the past from all the SkinCeutials range this was no different. Literally after 2 days I began to notice a huge difference on my skin. It had a lovely glow and hydrated appearance. This serum helps refine the texture of the skin creating a refreshed smoother overall finish and helps reduce pigmentation. I really noticed the benefits after using the product daily for 30 days. One of the key ingredients is Phloretin which inhibits up to 80% of elastase (an enzyme that breaks down elastin, essential for skin to stay firm and supple). Phloretin is a bioflavinoid (normally extracted from citrus fruits) derived from apples. Being a preventative and corrective topical antioxidant this is a MUST HAVE for anyone looking to refresh their skin and keep it looking smooth and refined. It has now been close to 2 months since introducing this product into my morning routine and it really has made a huge difference to point that I only need to use a tinted moisturizer on a daily basis as all my pigmentation has faded, my pores have virtually disappeared and my skin has this amazing glow the moment after applying the serum. It is a slight investment of £150.00 per bottle, however you only require 4-6 drops per day, 2 months in and I have 30% of the product left in my bottle.

Hyaluronic Acid is the buzz word in anti-ageing. It is naturally found in ones skin naturally however as the ageing process begins this element decreases which in turn causes dehydrated skin and fine lines. Dermal fillers consist mostly of Hyaluronic Acid however with so many other options on the market a topical moisturiser can work in conjunction with your skin treatments or solely on its own. Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser is a multi functional day cream, it provides a SPF15 protection and works to plump and firm dehydrated skin throughout the day. Hyaluronic Acid and Gransil target the concern of dehydrated skin and help to tighten and soften fine lines. Ingredients such as Chromabright and Vitamin B3 help even your skin tone and illuminate your skin for a brighter complexion. While I admit I LOVE the name Dragon’s Blood as it just sounds so promising in a slightly scary way this ingredient has soothing and protecting properties rather than maybe what you all imagine. I have been using this moisturiser for the past 3 weeks and really enjoy the texture as it hits the skins surface it is instantly ‘sucked in’ it creates an instant tightened appearance to the skins surface and I have noticed fine lines around my eyes have softened already.

DermaPure Roller therapy can significantly improve the appearance of:
• Facial and décolletage lines and winkles
• Lack of skin firmness and elasticity
• Acne and chicken pox scars
• Enlarged pores
• Sun damage and age spots
• Cellulite and stretch marks
• Under-eye bags
The revolutionary concept of DermaPure Roller therapy is also known as skin needling and is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new healthy ones. This treatment’s popularity is beginning to surface very quickly after Angelina Jolie admitted this is one of her best kept beauty secrets.
Before your procedure commences a topical anaesthetic will be applied to your skin to ensure your comfort. After your skin is numbed, the procedure shall begin by rolling the DermaPure Roller over your skin to puncture the outermost layers of the skin to create minuscule sub-cutaneous injuries. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which may last for up to a year.
Immediately after your Dermaroller procedure a gold mask will be applied to soothe and begin the healing process. You will look as though you have mild to moderate sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This will start to subside after two hours and will normally recover on the same day with only slight redness the following day. An after care pack is suggested to help maintain results and care for your skin during and post treatment.
A course of three Dermapure Roller sessions, at 3-4 week intervals, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results. However you will notice great skin improvement after just one treatment. Treatments can be carried out on the face and body to improve with many concerns.
Special Offer for July & August
FACE Rejuvenation Package
Includes: Consultation, 3 Dermapure Roller treatment sessions along with an aftercare kit (total value of £1,190.00) Price £ 999.00
