PRESERVATION OF THE PERIORBITAL REGION STARTS WITH AN EFFICIENT SKIN REGIMEN

What are you doing to protect your skin around your eyes? Skin protection is at the core of my anti-ageing strategy. A good SPF and antioxidant is a must for DNA repair, through a combination of a retinoid and AHA (alpha hydroxyl acids). These two substances are the Holy Grail ingredients to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

TIPS FOR HEALTHY BEAUTIFUL EYES

One of the most important tips on how to make our eyes beautiful lies in the effective care of our eyes, to stop problems such as infections. This is why I have assembled the top 6 health tips on our road to achieving beautiful eyes:

  1. Every three months, we should throw away our eye make-up. Especially in creamy or liquid eye make-up, bacteria grows easily and can give you infections.
  2.  If you do experience an eye infection, you should immediately throw away all your eye make-up.
  3. You should never share you eye make-up as you can contract infections from other
  4.  When you sample make-up in stores, make sure you only use sanitized or fresh samples. You want to avoid samples that may be contaminate by other users
  5. If you are prone to allergies, it is a good idea to add make up to your collection once at a time. This will allow you to determine which one is causing any allergic reactions that you might develop. Doctors can also help you more once they know what ingredients you are allergic to
  6.  And lastly, make sure you avoid untested products that are not from a reputable brand. Natural ingredients are usually the best!

Follow these tips and get the beautiful eyes that you deserve, and call today to find out more about which facial treatments in south west London will suit your needs the best with Dr Fern!

LOOK TO THE STARS FOR INSPIRATION ABOUT CHEEKBONE CONTOURING! 

The stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age definitely influenced the beauty ideals of the western world. Classic on-screen beauties like Marlene Dietrich, with her perfectly contoured, chiselled profile, made dramatic high cheekbones a desirable feature for women. Her sculpted glamour was only enhanced by the light and shade of the black-and-white films.

Nowadays, we still idolise the beautiful features and enviable defined cheekbones of women we see on TV, in films and in magazines – only, now, we can see them in full colour! Using blusher and highlighter to contour the cheeks has become a popular beauty trend, with women trying to replicate the looks of their idols. Subtle, natural makeup can enhance the cheekbones beautifully, especially if gentle fillers have been used to lift the cheeks.

To find out more about achieving a timeless look worthy of the silver screen, book a consultation with Dr Fern at The London Facial Care today.

HOW CAN I KEEP MY LIPS MOISTURISED?

Gorgeous lips are soft, healthy and hydrated at all times. Lips that are properly moisturised always look plump and juicy, which means big smiles and plenty of confidence.

My patients often ask me how they can keep their lips soft following a treatment like lip augmentation or filler injections. So, here are some simple tips for achieving well-moisturised lips.

WHAT ARE THE BEAUTY TRENDS IN KOREA ?

In Korea, beauty ideals are some of the most distinctive in the world, based on the idea of women being childlike and innocent. Korean women are thought to be beautiful if they have a slim, petite figure, for example, and a small face with a V-shaped jawline and double eyelids (where the eyelids have a crease, which many Asian women do not have). In fact, many women even undergo cosmetic surgery to achieve this look! Another beauty standard that Korean women try to uphold is having spotless, blemish-free, bright skin that is white in tone (something that can be enhanced with dark hair and full, red lips). Korea is something of a beauty mecca, with trends that are far more advanced than other countries! Here is my favourite beauty trend from Korea at the moment.
