Guinot Facial at Chamomile Sanctuary Edinburgh

Winter skin- for me this usually means grey and dismal like the weather. But this year, I’m older and wiser - ok, then, just older. So I’m going to start as I mean to go on; prepping skin for the colder months ahead in the hope my skin will look glowing and radiant year long.

Now, I’m a massive fan of facials. For me, they’re like a holiday specifically for your face. As you lie back and relax, all manner of products help restore and revitalise skin, leaving you looking like you – just a better version. So it was to my utter delight that I discovered that beauty brand Guinot is adding to its facial treatment range at Edinburgh’s plush Chamomile Sanctuary.

Amongst the existing treatments is the popular Guinot Hydradermie. It lasts one hour 15 minutes and the results will leave to wanting to ogle your skin on account of it looking so good. The cleansing, exfoliating and toning sections of this treatment purify and penetrate deep down thanks to the active ingredients in the products. Prior to this treatment, my skin had been spotty but post treatment, spots receded and eventually disappeared.

Fight skin pigmentation with Lancome DreamTone

It’s all the fault of fibroblasts. That’s the result of the Lancôme’s extensive research as to what causes skin pigmentation like age spots. For years it’s been a long held beauty belief that these were caused by the skin’s pigment cells. But now, Lancôme’s work has proved otherwise.

Tom Ford Beauty Latest Collection

Tom Ford Beauty’s latest collection is all about contrast, more specifically contrast between light and dark. Because the change of season doesn’t just mean new fashions in clothing; it’s also time to welcome the new beauty trends and makeup collections. Petal pinks lips and dark eyes are just two of those that made appearances on the autumn winter catwalks. And Tom Ford’s Fall 2013 Color Collection features plenty of useful tools to help.
