I am very proud to announce that my 9 Radiance Eye and Lip Serum has been shortlisted in the Pure Beauty Awards, just months after it was launched. This new product has been shortlisted in the Best New Premium Anti-Ageing Product category in these prestigious international awards. The Pure Beauty Awards are considered a highlight in the beauty industry calendar and the annual awards event attracts key industry professionals and leading UK retailers. The fact that my first eye and lip product has been acknowledged by the judges is a true commendation. Having spent over a year researching, formulating and refining 9 based on my scientific knowledge and salon-based experience, I’m very proud to have reached the final of the Pure Beauty Awards, especially when I’m competing against big budget international brands. The next stage of the competition is a public vote once the shortlist is announced in the September issue of Pure Beauty. Standards are incredibly high in the beauty industry so I’m very proud to be shortlisted and I have my fingers crossed that voters will share my passion for the serum and feel compelled to vote for it. Suitable for all skin types, 9 is a light satin-feel oil-based serum for the delicate eye and lip area. It is formulated from a unique blend

Face&Body Expo, Chicago March 12 - 14, 2016. One of the best beauty shows I have experienced - informative presentations, best examples of "organic" and "active" skincare brands. I have a talk on the benefits of professional facial massage that has been recorded and I will share it with you soon. The talks I enjoyed most as relevant to my clinical practice were given by: Dr Erin Madigan-Fleck on naturopathic treatment of protein deficiency and how it impacts on ageing skin (Atlanta, Georgia). An important issue to discuss with my vegetarian clients! Dr Mark Lees's approach to acne care (Florida) - similar principles to my practice, using more of alpha/beta hydroxy acids and considering diet a little less than I do.. Great review of current beauty&spa trends by IDI Dermalogica trainer Annet King (Los Angeles) Practical showcasing of Janel Luu's introduction into her Asian lymphatic drainage on 10 pressure points technique with dark jade stone Eminence Skincare intensive physio-based massage skills & showmanship Large portfolio of all natural products (you can see the coarse structure of ingredients), traditional Hungarian line Eminence Organics, not for sensitive skin types in my view! The hard physio-based massage is what makes the difference! Their amusing shows (imagine balloons, Minion rucksacks, comedy) are very popular. Interesting brand by Dr Pugliese. As their representative

My recommendations for women with pre-menstrual acne have been published in the June issue of the US Allure magazine. About 4 in 10 women in their 40's still experience spots on the chin prior to their period. They feel unattractive, particularly in the work environment and when dating. Please share this with your family & friends who still suffer with pre-menstrual acne! For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I was invited to give a talk on facial skincare to the skincare industry last week and when preparing for the talk I came across a few insights that are worth sharing: Understand the importance of Night Care. Although more than 8 in 10 British women use face creams daily, only 3 in 10 apply a night cream every night. As this is something I come across also in my private consultations, I would like to encourage you to use an appropriate night care if you want to see results! Invest In Your Face. Modern skincare is effective - a good routine can deliver benefits comparable to the benchmark dermatologist treatment. The Brits spend about half on facial skincare compared to the French and yet they feel "they spend lots of money". Learn to enjoy using your skincare products and make them a pleasant part of your daily life. Slow Down. Long working hours in Britain and the fact that 3 in 10 women are losing weight have an impact on premature lines and wrinkles. Fast paced lifestyle and quick-fix solutions are not beneficial for your face in the long-term. Synopsis - Multi-tasking Moisturisers: Meeting Consumers' Needs? Skin concerns change during our lives and factors including age, health, hormonal influences, lifestyle and
A Pocklington grandmother who won a Mother’s Day competition has a new look and a portfolio of photographs. Mavis Goodwin, 58, was nominated for the competition to reward a deserving Mum with a series of relaxing and anti-ageing facial massages by her daughter, Jayne Bell, who wanted to give her mum some valuable ‘me time’ from her role as a full time carer to Jayne’s father. Organised by FaceWorkshops in conjunction with Mark Kensett photography, the competition attracted many deserving entries but we were so moved by Jayne’s nomination that we awarded the £600 prize of a three month course of anti-ageing facial massages plus a photo shoot package to Mavis without hesitation. As Mavis reached the end of the course of facial massages that have helped to energise and tone her skin; she said; “Not only is my skin glowing, but I have benefited in other ways, too. It has helped to take away stress, and forced me to make time for me and to relax. It’s been lovely and Mark’s photos are a great reminder of my experience.” Mavis’s daughter Jayne accompanied her mum to some of the treatments. “My dad had an accident three years ago that left him brain damaged, unable to speak and totally reliant on Mum, so the last
