Retinol/Vitamin A – Is it really worth the hype?

Retinol is arguably the most researched and clinically proven anti-ageing skincare product on the market. Brands such as Obagi and Environ which are Retinol based have had huge success due to the effectiveness of the product, but is all Retinol the same?

Surprise, surprise…the answer is no! This blog is to help explain Retinol strengths, normal reactions and what to expect from this super anti-ageing ingredient!

Mineral make up, what’s it all about and do we really need to use it?

Make up is such a wonderful thing, I hear some women complain about it being another thing forced upon us by the patriarchy, but I feel lucky that when I’m hungover and looking like death, it’s socially acceptable for me to stick on concealer or mascara and look half human again!

I spend a lot of time, effort and money on my skin, so isn’t it reversing this hard work when I wear make-up?

If I had a pound for every time somebody has told me that they don’t have time to do a skincare regime, I would be buying a new Michael Kors handbag right now! I thought it would be fun to time my skincare regime everyday for a week to find out how much of my day is spent on my face.

Some of you may have heard this terminology, some of you may have not. When I’m in skincare consultations I try to educate my clients as much as possible, I believe that knowledge is power and if my clients understand why I’m recommending a treatment or product they will trust my judgement more than just accepting what I suggest. Free Radicals and Antioxidants can be a bit of a grey area however. It’s quite difficult to explain without getting too technical and I can sometimes see my clients start to glaze over so I thought I’d write this post to try to explain it without the jargon!
