Secrets of my fresh-faced look


Some of you asked me for a post about beauty products and today I wanted to let you in on the secret of  my latest purchases.

During my recent trip to Oviedo, northern Spain I visited Marta Garcia‘s beauty salon for some moisturising treatments and bought creams by Linda Meredith that she recommended.

These included:

Amazon Enzyme Peel to be used once a week to get rid of dead skin cells. After removing makeup and cleansing your face, cover skin with a thin layer. Leave the product to work for five minutes. Then massage it into the skin for a deeper exoliation and remove with warm water.

Amazon, a serum to be used every night on the face, neck and external eye contour.

Eye Gel is a serum for the eye contour. Use in the morning and night under your daily eye cream.

SPF-45 is an anti-aging sun cream. I never leave home without applying some kind of protection on my face and hands.

Also at Marta Garcia I found Jo Hansford hair products, which I was already aware of because of my subscription to Glossybox. Illuminoil is a product that protects coloured hair, providing shine and nourishing your hair. Her Intensive MaskAnti-frizz Conditioner and Shampoo all come in one bag; very convenient for trips.

Finally, at Marta Garcia too, I found the hand cream I needed, Volupthe de Bastien. It’s a small box with four hand creams – the perfect size for your handbag.

At this time of the year, I’m also on photoshoots for summer clothes. So I also start needing self-tanners. The brand I like most is Comodynes. Their body lotion Hydra Tanning not only moisturises, it also gives skin a subtle tanned tone that  increases progressively with daily use.

I love everything by Rituals, but most of all their Menthol Cream for legs. It’s incredible, for those days with tired legs.

Lucky legs from Mama Mio relaxes my feet and legs when I have spent all day standing in skyscraper heels…

For my neck I bought a neck and bust reaffirmation cream called Boob Tube also by Mama Mio.

I know this great brand Malin and Goetz  from staying in hotels. I bought one of their Rum Hand Soaps!

You know I am a complete fan of Kiehl’s and this body cream, Soy Milk and Honey Mousse  by Creme de Corps is very easy to apply, amazingly moisturising and smells like heaven.

Finally, to end the day, a moisturising spray that’s refreshing too, a dream when you have had makeup on all day, Beaute Initiale Spray Serum by Chanel

I hope I’ve given you many good ideas to renew your beauty products. I will let you know how they are working.
