I thought I would remind you of the importance of using sunscreen, particularly as we have just had our first few ‘sunbathing’ days of the year. Whilst we all know about protecting our skin, I am still tempted to get a tan and sit baking in the sun to achieve my goal – but now I am ‘getting on’, I really do regret the years of lying in the sun for hours on end just to get temporary colour. While it is important to get some sun exposure during off-peak hours for health reasons, you can still achieve a golden tan while preserving the long term health & beauty of your skin. All skin tones are vulnerable to sun damage from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. So applying sunscreen at the start of your day should be as automatic as combing your hair. To provide colour to pale skin, try tinted moisturisers or self tanning lotion

Avoid going out without sunscreen or a hat during the peak hours of 10AM to 3PM, because in addition to the risk of skin cancer, UV radiation (whether from the sun or from a sunbed) can also cause the following:
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Dry, rough, leathery skin
- Broken capillaries on the face
- Liver spots on the face, back of hands, arms, chest and upper back
- Spots or blemishes on the lower legs and arms
So be sure to protect yourself when going outside, whatever the weather.
Clarins -Wrinkle Control Cream For Face
High Protection UVB/UVA 30 £20
Ideal protection for sun-sensitive skin or skin exposed to intense sunlight. Combining efficacy with the most incredible texture, this suncreen lotion protects against dehydration as well as helping to prevent the visible signs of premature skin ageing.
Don’t forget your hands when applying sunscreen; hands are often one of the first parts of the body that show age since they get more exposure to the sun than other parts of the body. Be sure to protect them daily with a UVA/UVB sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. When it comes to sunglasses, most people think of appearance. Eyes need protection too. Sunglasses protect your eyes and the skin around them from sun damage and reduce the risk of cataracts. They also protect the tender skin around your eyes from sun exposure. What’s the right protection? Lenses that offer 99-100 percent UVA and UVB protection. Wraparound sunglasses work best because they also block UV rays from the side.

The party season is in full swing. We all tend to overdo it at this time of the year and this can have disastrous effects on our skin, so here are some beauty ideas that may come to your rescue.
The best base for any make up is lovely skin. The most important thing about skin is to keep it looking fresh, alive and bright in appearance. After that you can dress your skin up or down with makeup products, from natural through to a Hollywood glamour look. Look after your skin all year round by drinking plenty of water and not completely avoiding fat. Eating foods such as nuts, which have oil in them, will add vitamin E to your diet that is great for your skin. Lastly, treat your skin as a delicate canvas and always cleanse off your make up before going to bed.
The following are a selection of products that I would choose for myself. Alternatively, I would love to receive any of these as a gift.
My top beauty item is Clarin’s Beauty Flash Balm. I consider it a ’must have’ item in my make up bag for the party season. Despite the fact that it has been around for 30 years, it is a reliable cream that still works for me and gives radiance and skin glow that can take ten years off your face. This exceptional beauty booster immediately eliminates signs of fatigue. It promotes a radiant complexion and long-lasting, incredibly luminous makeup. The ideal treatment before a busy day or an evening out. Beauty Flash Balm brightens, tightens, smoothes and revives every complexion, in an instant. £29.00
Another fabulous find is Cailyn Cosmetics ‘O! Wow Brush’ make-up brush! Through its velvet-like bristles and densely packed ultra fine fibers, this amazing brush is made to ensure an airbrushed effect, with an immaculate streak-free touch. This brush features a dome, angular shaped surface that is beautifully crafted to blend foundation, powder, cream, moisturizer and primers seamlessly into your skin.
Compatible with any type of foundation, BB Cream, powder and blush. A great gift or stocking filler. £20
And last but by no means least the gorgeous Mauli Himalayan Healing Salts. Infused with 13 therapeutic oils, laced with powdered rose quartz to bring wellbeing, clarity and calm in an overly-stimulated world. Mauli’s multi-layered blend combines the unique vibrational energy of Himalayan pink salts (which contain 84 of the 92 trace minerals found in the body), infused with 13 exquisite therapeutic oils, laced with soothing powdered rose quartz crystals to bring a sense of wellbeing, clarity and calm in an overly stimulated world. Use these once or twice a week so mind and body can feel beautifully balanced. Place a handful of salts (approx 50g) into running water and immerse yourself for 15-20 minutes to allow the healing elements time to absorb. Leave the bath without rinsing, wrap yourself in a towel and drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Then just sit back and relax. £39
May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family, a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016.Read More >>
We are always so excited when new Clarins make-up arrives at the salon; we tear the boxes open like excited children on Christmas morning!
I am the biggest lipstick junkie and since the new Jolie Rouge arrived I have been parading round with ‘Hot Pink’ on all day and have had lots of compliments,
This lipstick glides on so effortlessly, with a beautiful super pigmented shine. It doesn’t feel drying on the lips at all, in fact it feels almost like a balm & you could easily forget you are wearing this. With moisturising lipsticks, you don’t expect them to stay on for very long, as they slide right off, but this one does not do that. One of my favourite things about the lipstick is the overall look of it. The packaging is amazing, and the shape of the lipstick is not only fabulous, but makes application easy too
The new Jolie Rouge lipstick range is available in several shades of red, pink and satin. You will therefore easily find a shade in harmony with the colour of your hair and your eyes. Bright, intense reds will show off pale skin. Browner or more orange shades will highlight golden and darker skin.Read More >>
