Three months since I began my skin rejuvenation with my first Hifu treatment! I know that I need patience as collagen takes time to renew, which is just as well as so far I can see no change whatsoever. Patience has never been my strong point but I’m feeling optimistic about this as have heard such good things about Hifu. …

Time catches up with us all at some stage. Since turning 60 I can definitely see an escalation in the ageing of my skin. This is, of course, only natural but doesn’t mean I have to sit back and just accept it.  There are now so many treatments that are non-surgical, non-invasive or semi-invasive that there is actually quite a …

Ok that’s not really what it’s called, it’s actually the CBD Facial, but I rather like my name. This facial uses the big trend of the moment, CBD oil, both internally and externally The full name of CBD is cannabidiol and it’s derived from the cannabis plant but without the high. And yes it’s legal here in the UK. It’s …

I used to love a facial but to be honest I very rarely have them anymore. I mean in this day and age they’re just a bit….well….quaint, aren’t they?

I’m a bit of a baby when it comes to skin treatments. I like organic natural products, gentle treatments and I don’t like pain. And I especially don’t like downtime. I mean who has time for downtime? Downtime makes me nervous. What if the swelling, redness or bruising is really bad and takes weeks to go back to normal? What if …

Radio frequency skin treatments are one of my favourites as they effectively tighten skin, improve collagen production and have no downtime with zero pain factor. The only downside is the cost. While it may be too expensive to indulge in a course every year, I do think even occasional one off treatments are well worth it. I’ve tried a few …

First of all HD Brows (they of the perfect brow fame) have opened an HD (High Definition) Boutique in Notting Hill. Hoorah!!

The Masterlift

A while ago I wrote about the heavenly facial I had with Marie Reynolds who is one of the best skin therapists I’ve ever come across. You can therefore imagine my excitement when once again I found myself on her table for her unique Masterlift treatment. This treatment offers a real alternative to lifts and injectables in addressing skin ageing. …

The other week I wrote about my treatments for this fabulous natural facelift and how impressed I was with the results. You can read it HERE. Well, when I embarked on the 6 week course, my wonderful practitioner, Shermine Boustany, was bemoaning the fact she didn’t have any men to try it on. In Japan where it’s very popular, men …
