Re-Writing The Ageing Process

Contrary to popular belief, Ageing skin is natural and beautiful.

Society and the beauty industry make it appear that as you age, you are less desirable. Yet, statistics show that older women are more comfortable, happy and free – disbanding the negative stigmas and political ties that suggests ageing shouldn’t be celebrated. Maintaining great skin health and feeling confident and comfortable is key as your skin matures, rather than the focus on beauty treatments to try and stop the process.

When the skin matures, there are many changes that come into play, the epidermis thins, melanocytes decrease, pigmented and age spots may appear, reduction in the skin’s strength and elasticity and less collagen is being produced naturally. Therefore, when it comes to skincare, focusing on these areas will help to support and maintain the everyday balance of the complexion.

FOR PIGMENTED MARKS & AGE SPOTS

Supplementing Vitamin A and C into your routine will help to reduce the appearance of dark marks and age spots. Retinol is a highly effective night treatment that targets cell renewal and this re-charge ensures cell turnover, encouraging fresh cells to be produced. The Celestial Black Diamond Retinol Oil is formulated with 1% Retinol before being housed in a blanket of oils to nurture and condition the skin. Oils that include sweet almond oil, sunflower seed oil and poppyseed oil to deeply nourish and regenerate damaged skin cells. In addition, Vitamin C works as an antioxidant to protect yet simultaneously brighten the skin.

STRENGTHEN THE SKIN & IMPROVE ELASTICITY

Collagen is the support system you never knew you needed. Producing less naturally as you age can lead to dry and lack lustre skin as well as deeper set lines and wrinkles. Utilising collagen in your skin will help to strengthen, improve elasticity and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The Celestial Black Diamond Cream is our most potent and active formulation for treating the skin. Designed to target the most advanced signs of ageing, the nourishing treatment provides the optimum environment for the Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid to be produced. The results? Skin will be left hydrated, plump, firmer and softer.

TREATING FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

Although the development of fine lines and wrinkles are natural and inevitable, they can be treated with some care and attention. The Celestial Black Diamond Contour Gel is inspired by Botox with the precise needle delivering advanced formulations to lift and smooth deeper set lines. Designed with Argireline, Matrixyl 3000 and Centella Asiatica, fine lines will be left volumized and minimised.

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.
