New in this week
I love Retinol-based products at the moment. They reverse signs of premature ageing due to photo damage after too much exposure to UVA and UVB the suns harmful rays but you also need to note that sun protection factor (SPF) are needed, as these products cause your skin to become photo-sensitive. Products such as Sunday Riley’s Bionic Anti-Ageing Cream contain a high concentration of key ingredients help rebuild collagen and increase skin energy and brightness.
Available at SpaceNK.co.uk for £175.
Laser hair removal is the one of the essentials to have that A-list look and a perfect way to have a confidence boost when you are exposing those hairy body parts in winter sun getaway. Regular trips can result in permanent hair reduction of unwanted hair and a great way to boost your confidence and less hassle when getting ready! Using a Sciton PROFILE machine, it uses light wavelengths to remove the hair for long, outstanding results!
Points to remember if you are considering laser hair removal make sure you have not applied fake tan in the last 5 weeks and this also goes for sun and sunbed exposure, this can cause serious burns to the area being treated.
Products such as No!No! Hair are incredible for at-home hair removal, it removes hair by delivering a gentle pulse of heat over the skin to immediately crystalize the hair for fast and easy removal. You can use it in any area and it promises no mess or ingrown hairs for stress free hair removal. Perfect! It’s a good investment to make if you are scared of getting a wax or threaded!
Available at Boots.com at £174 or cheaper if you are on a BA flight.

Skincare Tip of the Week
Cleansing twice a day is always a chore for some people, but I found a lovely new product that helps to make it easier!
A product that I have been enjoying is Merumaya’s Melting Cleansing Balm. This has been developed to help prevent skin ageing along with a luxurious and sensual formula. My tip of the week is to double cleanse, remove make up and grime first and on the second use, actually cleanse your skin. A lot of people only cleanse once and this doesn’t use the product to it’s full potential!
What you are achieving when cleansing, you are removing all of the days grim and dead skin cells for your skin, leaving a healthy surface for your products to be absorbed.
They also sell Daily Cleansing Clothes (£12.50), soak these with warm water to remove cleanser for the best results.
