New Real Skin Cream from No Nonsense

Face and body creams made of organic natural oils and nothing else....

Handmade using 100 per cent organic oils and nothing else, the new Real Skin Cream range from No Nonsense is a very different approach to skincare.

Delivering fast and long-lasting moisturisation, while avoiding all chemicals, No Nonsense Real Skin Cream has been developed for face, body, hands and feet. As this rich buttery cream is applied the body’s heat melts it into the skin and the oils are absorbed to provide immediate hydration.

Quickly and effectively combating dry skin on every area of the body this fundamental product comes in three formulas. Apricot & Shea leaves skin fresh-looking and silky soft, Hemp & Shea balances dry skin and reduces inflammation while Rosehip & Shea fights wrinkles and helps keep skin feeling young and elastic. Formulated for everyday use the Real Skin Cream range is particularly beneficial when skin has been dehydrated after shaving or showering

With each variety containing just four powerful natural ingredients, vitamin rich fair-trade shea butter, two natural plant oils and one essential oil, you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. Known for their skin-loving benefits these natural oils have been carefully chosen to provide all you need for silky soft, naturally glowing skin. The creams contain absolutely no synthetic ingredients, parabens, perfumes, preservatives or additives. The entire range is hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive and problem-skin, and suitable for vegans.

Creator Dawn Lyle says the combination of providing intense moisturisation with avoiding all possible skin irritants has transformed her own skin:

“Many skin problems are caused by the chemicals contained in over-medicalised skincare products which can cause damage, dry skin and premature ageing as they accumulate over time. I decided to call this product Real Skin Cream because it avoids all the rubbish that isn’t needed and simply delivers the concentrated moisturisation that skin cries out for.

“Skincare has become clouded with quasi-science when actually skin’s needs are simple and an effective moisturiser is at the top of the list, especially in winter. Containing nothing except organic natural oils No Nonsense is whipped into a cream to give these incredible oils an easily-absorbed texture.”

No Nonsense 100ml body creams are priced at £15 and available online at www.nononsensebodycare.co.uk.

You can try before you buy with free samples available on the website (www.nononsensebodycare.co.uk) where you can also win a romantic weekend for two in a tipi.

Frost Bitten Beauty From myface.cosmetics

ICE, ICE BABY . . . rock the ultimate snow queen makeup looks this Christmas with ice cool, frosted glamour from myface cosmetics. FREE with purchases over £15, treat yourself to a myface makeover with a festive bling box that includes a full size Lil’ bling nail polish, high def eye pencil and one hit wonder lip gloss . .. worth over £25!!

For makeup that says ‘frost bitten beauty’ follow these steps from myface.cosmetics artistic director, Kay Montano . . .

Step 1: apply the high def eye pencil black along the top and bottom lashes and in the lower rim. smudge slightly with a small blending brush or a cotton bud to create that sexy lived-in look - the makeup is meant to be smokey and sultry. at the outer corner take the line out and up slightly to elongate the eye and really emphasize the feline shape

Step 2: molten metallic nails are THE trend for winter so go for high impact, ethereal colour with a coat of Lil’ bling in Diamonds and Pearls. sweep the easy application brush over nails for a wash of ice cool, metal chrome – and for added bling match nails with eyes using the pigment packed, blingtone eyeshadows

Step 3: to add to the frost effect, add a wash of shimmering sparkle to lips with the One Hit Wonder lipgloss in Diamonds and Pearls. the pale, ice cream, sheer colour resembles a new fallen crystal snow in the morning sun, adding opulent shine with just 'one hit'

Kay’s top tip: build up colour pigment on both nails and eyes for a high impact evening look by layering both the blingtones and lil’ bling nail chromes

New Neutrogena Multi-Defence Range

The environment can affect the skin in many ways. UV exposure has always been classed as the primary cause of skin damage; however recent research shows that UV is not the only culprit.
Our skin is in fact exposed to a number of different environmental aggressors on a daily basis. The five key environmental aggressors that damage our skin are: sun, pollution, cold, heat and wind. Research shows that up to 80% of skin ageing and damage can be caused by these aggressors[1] and that when these aggressors are combined the damage to skin is increased.

Introducing the NEW Neutrogena® Multi-Defence™ Range

This brand new range is the first daily moisturising range from Neutrogena® that provides all round skin protection against the damaging effects of the everyday environment. Neutrogena® has carefully selected key ingredients to form a brand new breakthrough technology, PROT-AOX™. This active defence system uses an innovative fusion of effective ingredients including Moringa seed, Yerba Maté (Brazilian green tea), and antioxidants vitamins C and E which help to enhance the skin’s natural defences2 to protect it from the the five daily major aggressors. Leaving skin looking beautifully healthy.

The range

The Multi-Defence™ range includes three daily moisturisers which go beyond hydration to help address the needs of different skin types. The Daily Moisturiser for all skin types contains SPF25 and includes PROT-AOX™ to protect against the five environmental aggressors .There are two other Daily Moisturiser’s in the Multi-Defence™ range: the Daily Moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin and the Daily Moisturiser for normal to combination skin, both of which contain SPF15 and go beyond hydration to help address the needs of different skin types. Each daily moisturiser is fragrance free and has been proven to help strengthen the skin’s natural defences2 , keeping skin nourished and hydrated all day long.

The range also includes Gentle Purifying Wipes which are enriched with a combination of anti-oxidants and remove traces of dirt and make-up to leave skin feeling clean and fresh whilst the Gentle Purifying Scrub protects skin whilst lifting away all traces of dirt, pollution and make-up . The Multi-Defence™ Night Moisturiser is designed to help skin recover from the day’s environmental aggressors and strengthen natural defences every night so that you can wake up with radiant skin everyday.

Best Of British Beauty - ARK Skincare

With all the doom and gloom surrounding the worldwide economy, there has never been a better time to support local businesses in the UK and buy British!
Alan Sugar himself was recently featured in the media calling for the ‘UK to think UK when buying’ and British buying has become increasingly more important for the UK economy, because supporting our home companies creates jobs for the unemployed and is vital for small businesses; which employ 13 million people and generate half of the country’s wealth. Buying British is about supporting our own economy, encouraging home-grown talent, and celebrating what the UK has to offer.
When it comes to buying your British Beauty Essentials there are plenty of products to chose from, but if you’re looking for a serious skincare brand that offers an array of gorgeous products, look no further than ARK who have over the last 11 years established themselves as South West London’s leading skin care and wellbeing centres. With branches in Wimbledon, Putney, and Fulham Ark’s success lies in the hands of it’s founder, Shula Starkey who works closely with her team of therapists to make sure clients not only receive amazing, beneficial treatments but leave with a sense of wellness and inspiration.

Over the past 11 years, Shula Starkey’s therapist teams at ARK skin care centre’s have performed over 100,000 treatments and together they have become experts in understanding and responding to their clients’ skincare needs.

As well as offering fantastic treatments, in 2009 ARK launched an exclusive range of skincare solutions called ARK Age Aware Skincare and the product range has most recently expanded its retail distribution in to selected House of Fraser stores.

About ARK Age Aware Skincare
Developed over 5 years of research, ARK Age Aware Skincare is the result of collaboration with Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed, a Naturopathic doctor and leading expert in preventative health and nutrition. There are two main skin transition periods in the ageing process where there is a dramatic shift in hormone production and a significant change in the way the body functions; late 20s to early 30s and late 50s to early 60s. By looking at these transition periods, ARK has divided its skin therapy into three age appropriate product lines:

Age Prepare (late teens to early 30s)
Age Maintain (mid 30s to 50)
Age Repair (50 and beyond)

ARK Age Aware Skincare comprises 41 face and body products in total including four core products for each age range; a cleanser, moisturiser, exfoliator and masque – the fundamentals for a good regular skincare regime, - alongside an innovative range of 8 therapeutic SkinResponse Serums, 12 Naturopathic Skin Supplements to treat specific skin conditions, and 9 nourishing Supporting Skincare products

Hero products include:
Radiance Serum
Lip Plumping Balm
Anti-Redness Serum
Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream
Age Maintain Moisturiser
Age Prepare Purifying Masque
Age Repair Smoothing Exfoliator
