I’ve never been one to worry about ageing. When your my Mum comes to school for parents’ evening and someone asks if she’s in the 6th form, you kind of hope that you’ll have genetics on your side. Still, I’m always curious about keeping myself tip-top and figuring out exactly what my skin needs. I can use pretty much any product without having a break-out but then I’m never really sure what the best thing to use is. Natural products have been treating me well so far, but it’s always nice to have a well-informed second opinion. Step forward Antonia Burrell, a skincare expert who’s been in the industry for over 23 years. A few weeks ago I popped to her Notting Hill clinic for a bespoke facial and realised that although I have good quality skin, it’s actually rather dehydrated. This means that the dreaded lines can form more easily. The cost of £120 for an hour may seem scary at first, but when you think about the amount we spend on our hair and numerous other products, it all makes sense really to look after the largest organ we have.
Unlike most magazines, I’m not going to guilt trip you and tell you what your skin needs to be like. If you’re happy with your lot then that’s fine, but if you want to know how to get the best out of it then it may be worth trying something like this every so often. According to Antonia, age 25 is really the time to start sorting everything out. She created a 100% natural range of results driven products, so that people actually want to continue looking after their skin after seeing the benefits. I’ve been using the Forest Dew Skin Conditioner for just over six weeks and even before I went on holiday, I did start feeling a lot more radiant. I was also relieved to hear that I didn’t have to buy a completely new range, instead just adding a few drops of the conditioner before my moisturiser twice a day. It’s great to finally have some concrete advice!
