New in this week
Something I’ve discovered this week is a new beauty elixir called Fountain. It promises to delay the ageing process and extend the life span of cells after drinking it! So instead of using lotions and potions to fight anti ageing – your glow would come from within!
It contains a powerful antioxidant called resveratrol, which claims to be an effective weapon in the war against wrinkles. The ‘beauty molecule’ in the drink is found in red grape skins, red wine, peanuts and Japanese knotweed.
The brand recommends users to take one teaspoon a day. I for one think this sounds like a great idea to help boost collagen in the skin!
You can buy it here – http://www.boots.com/en/Fountain-The-beauty-molecule_1373392/ at £24.99
Treatment of the week
Kim Kardashian is someone who regularly talks about her favourite skincare products and treatments. Always one for trying new treatments such as the Vampire Facelift or having regular acupuncture sessions to help keep her skin young and fresh.
The Vampire Facelift helps rejuvenate the skin from the patients own blood injected into multiple areas of the skin (£550, www.leegarrett.net). It helps treats wrinkles and is full of platelet-rich plasma it’s a nice alternative to dermal fillers and its manufactured by you.
After revealing her makeup bag, you can see she uses Bio Oil (£8.95) and also ensures that she removes her makeup as soon as possible with Neutrogena Cleansing Wipes (£2.99) as sleeping with it on can contribute to early ageing and dirty pillows in the morning.

NUDE’s Miracle Mask (£38, www.nudeskincare.com) is a good investment to make; it’s a dual-action, exfoliating treatment that blends natural AHAs with rice beads to transform tired, dull and uneven skin. If you massage a small amount into your skin using circular motions, your pores are refined and renewed! I would say use this once a week as a treat to help get a glamorous glow!
And don’t forget your SPF!

Skincare doesn’t always need to be expensive, use products such as Simple’s Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser (£4.49), it’s a perfect blend of multi-vitamin goodness and added moisturiser to gently remove impurities and traces of make-up.
Skincare Tip of the Week
Orico London’s Vitamin Rich Face Oil (£28, www.oricolondon.co.uk) is a skincare hero! It helps hydrate and nourish skin whilst super fine molecules absorb deep. This is perfect to massage into your skin, day and night. I’d recommend a few drops and warm it up between your fingertips and massage it in a clockwise motion around your face. Throughout pinch your jaw and cheeks to encourage collagen, I would recommend applying this after bathing.
Now that your skin is nourished and revitalized, it’s important to work on your face. I’ve been working with Pixie Lott’s personal trainer Hayley Newton (@HayleySNewton) who says that the below exercises great for your facial muscles.
Make two C shapes with your fingers round the eyes and repeat three times and hold for ten seconds. Make a V sign at each eyebrow and create a powerful squint.
For your jaw, gently pinch along jawline three times towards the ears. Place the thumbs on the bottom of the jawline. Drag them along the jaw away from each other three times, removing them when you reach the ears.
Try this, along with the products I’ve suggested, for lasting results. Gorgeous!
