EVA ALEXANDRIDIS ON OUR INTENSIVE RANGE

Eva ALEXANDRIDIS & OUR Intensive Range

What is it about the intensive range that you love?

EA: I love how the Intensive Range is high performance and formulated with a high level of actives to target brightening as well as pre-mature and advanced signs of ageing. It is the only range that is specifically designed to treat fine lines and wrinkles and it is personally my favourite for its potency, opulence and efficacy.

Your favourite product from the range and why?

EA: That’s difficult as the range itself is optimised to offer enhanced solutions towards ageing. I would have to say the products I use repetitively is the Celestial Black Diamond Cream and the Celestial Black Diamond Retinol Oil. My skin has built up a tolerance with the Retinol Oil where I can now work it into my routine every night.

What I love about the range overall is that it can be used with our other ranges especially with Reparative, it helps to intensify and tailor the range for more effective results.

How do you work it into your routine?

What would you recommend to others who want to invest in the Intensive Range?

EA: I would say if you’re in your 20s and 30s to start with the brightening products within the range. The Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser and Vitamin C Brightening Booster are holy grail products for any skin type, with Vitamin C as the star of products, the antioxidant provides a wealth of benefits that also protects and supercharges the complexion. As you grace your 40s, I would start by incorporating the Celestial Black Diamond Serum, Eye Cream, Contour Gel and cream for a complete routine focus. The unique black diamond particles sustain a delivery system that helps the potent ingredients reach the deeper layers of the dermis for a more triggered response. It truly is a remarkable formula when you want to see visible and long-lasting results.

Any beauty hacks people should know or do with any of the products in the range?

EA: I like to add some of my Retinol Oil into my night cream when I want to reduce the concentration levels but still reap the benefits. The oil already is housed in unique oils such as Sunflower Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil to nourish and condition the complexion – mixed with my Nocturnal Eclipse Recovery Cream, it is a dream combination.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
