Korean beauty... How to incorporate this 10 step skincare regime into your life

skin rejuv. system

The 10-step Korean skincare regime sounds more onerous than it is and is actually the basis of a great skincare routine. Following it everyday will ensure that you have great skin, that is thoroughly cleansed, hydrated and treated, protecting it from ageing and environmental aggression. I also believe it’s a great idea to book a course of facials to enhance the benefits so that you have glowing, radiant and rejuvenated skin.

The concept is quite simple and you may find you are doing most of it already. If you follow a nightly routine of eye make-up removal, double cleanse and tone, serum/concentrate, eye cream, lip product, moisturise, with a weekly exfoliate and mask – you are already achieving the 10 steps renowned in Korean beauty.

Trends noticed amongst brides in their 50/60’s

One trend that I have noticed becoming more popular recently for older brides has been pink toned lipstick. As we age our skin tends to lose colour and become slightly washed out and I think older women are definitely realizing this and using makeup accordingly. Whilst they may not wear lipstick daily, they are certainly opting for a pop of pink lipstick on their big day to add some colour into their face. Lipsticks with pink tones, as oppose to nude or brown tones, work really well for this and shades such as MAC Faux and Illamasqua Kitsch have been some favourites for older brides lately.

Summer can take its toll on our skin and hair, with our tans slowly fading and our skin feeling dry from air conditioning, chlorine and too much sun – it’s time to get back your glow.

Sitting in air-conditioned rooms and planes absorbs the skins natural moisture leaving it feeling dry and parched and it can be particularly detrimental to those who have skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. However, giving your skin a little TLC with some carefully selected skin saviors will bring your complexion back from the brink, leaving it looking healthy and glowing again.

Chlorella - the science behind celebrity claims

From supermodels Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to TV stars Millie Mackintosh and Jennifer Aniston, the green algae supplement chlorella hasn’t been far from celebrities lips over the last few years. It appears however, following discoveries in a recent study, there’s more to the algae’s skin benefits than simply celebrity anecdotes and that we could all get superstar skin by adding a little of the supplement to our lives...

  • There are a number of things that are harmful to our skin, from UV rays to a bad diet, but two issues that have come to the fore this year are pollution and blue light from electronic devices.
