(and yes, you do look 10 years younger!)

I have over the years tried so many different clinics and facialists but I always come back to Yvonne Martin Beauty Clinic.

I come back because not only do I look radiant when I come out but they also show me how to support the treatment with an at home regime.  I feel that it is not a one off but I am on a journey and they are helping me along the way. I have been tempted by Botox, especially when sleep deprived as my skin is always the first to suffer but Yvonne and her team have offered me an alternative path. She does not advocate quick fixes and we all know that you have to work at something to get it right and your skin is no exception.

The signature to her facial is massage, as it wakes the skin up and gets it looking plumper and alive again. The girls show me how to follow this routine at home.

As you get older you feel your face starts to droop and today the girls showed me how to work on this with facial massage. Will fill you in on how it goes and below is a video of the key steps.


Perfect Pedicure

I can not recommend Swanky Lash and Nail bar highly enough. I went to the Chamberlayne road salon and had the best pedicure I have every had, the focus was on the nails and the finish was so good I didn’t need any polish just a coat of natural varnish to add gloss. They also have a new salon in Notting Hill.

It is busy, so not a zen like atmosphere but so reasonable and there is a lovely energy. Also it lasts, my pedicure looks perfect and is now two weeks old. There is parking around the corner on Pay and Display.
