Cosmeceuticals are specialised effective skincare products which are halfway between cosmetic skincare and prescription pharmaceutical skincare, hence the name. And they come from brands such as Paula’s Choice, or Alpha H, or iS Clinical, NeoStrata,.
OK, deep breath, I've written another book. It's called Start with Skincare, because, even if you're thinking about tweakments, you need to get your skin in great shape first.
Thank you Jane Garvey for having me on @bbcwomanshour and talking tweakments, and to Melanie Abbott for laying out all the facts and figures. The idea was to explore whether whether Botox is becoming normalised - and to look at the gendered nature.
Was it just me, or was that programme last night (The Truth about Cosmetic Treatments, BBC1) dull as balls, as my son would say? It’s not just sour grapes that I didn’t manage to sneak my way onto it, honest (more of that later). It’s more that,.
Today I'm talking about marginal gains in tweakments. Marginal gains? Well, what I mean is that a lot of the time, people ask, 'How much difference will this one procedure that I want to try really make?'
Finally, after 12 long weeks, clinics offering cosmetic procedures are starting to reopen. A few of them opened a week or so ago; most are waiting for the start of July, and making their preparations. As some of you have been asking me.
You’ve been asking for a proper round-up of home-use devices - the ones I have, the ones I use, the ones I mean to use but don’t… so here it is, from top to toe. You can watch the video I made about these devices for the full detail on why I like.
I'm getting a lot of questions about marionette lines at the moment -- the lines that drop from the outer corners of our mouths straight down towards our chin. Maybe that's because we're all more gloomy than usual during lockdown, and are catching.
You might call them smile lines, you might call them 'crow's feet', but more to the point, what can you do about them? The skin around the eyes is thin and wrinkles easily, so few of us are going to escape the fine lines that settle in to this area..
