Like any busy mum I find it hard to incorporate a solid beauty routine into my already jam packed day. That’s why I appreciate products that have multiple uses. So, discovering DermaEraze Miracle Oil was an absolute boon! This little bottle of fabulousness can be used on the skin and hair. Although it is an oil, it absorbs like a lotion. So, it is the perfect primer under my make-up for my dry skin. I use it at night as a moisturiser and absorbs so quickly your skin feels soft and smooth from the first use. But, it can be used over the whole body and is particularly good for scars and stretch marks. I obviously have extensive scars over my entire body due to plastic surgery and have noticed a visible difference in the last three months of use.
Created by world renowned Skin Repair Specialist Lorena Öberg, This formulation is made from the purest Olive, Almond and Avocado oils. The healing properties of the oil make it an ideal product to use alongside aesthetic procedures such as micro-needling as it aids the skins ability to repair itself.
The Miracle Oil has done a beautiful job in keeping my hair extensions in great condition. I use it prior to straitening and any other heat treatments as it keeps my ends smooth and shiny. Again because it absorbs so well there are no issues with it causing the extensions to slip or the bonds to break down.
This is certainly a product that will remain a staple in my beauty routine.
Coming soon I will be revisiting Lorena in clinic to try her world famous DermaEraze Stretch Mark Removal Treatment. Just in time for bikini season!

I think it has never been a better time to be “a woman of a certain age”. From Botox to Butt lifts there is something for every possible age related issue. The current non-surgical options are endless. But, when looking into clinics it is important to find a safe practitioner that has had the latest training as well as being someone with the appropriate background. Personally, although I am aware this can be a grey area I believe that only those with medical backgrounds should be carrying out such procedures.
I realise it is obviously no secret I love a bit of youth in syringe form. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I received an invitation to visit Aestha Clinic at 25 Upper Wimpole St in London. Following an extensive consultation with the gorgeous and talented Dr Victoria Virtosu it was decided that I would have some Juvederm in my lips and a bit (well more than a bit) of Botox to rid my face of the previous six months of worry lines I had developed.
Botox being my favourite neurotoxin, smooths out those “road hard and put away wet” areas of the face like nothing else can.
Juvederm is a range of fillers containing injectable hyaluronic acid that when injected by a trained professional can provide nine months to one year of fullness to your lips as well as correct moderate to severe wrinkling on certain areas of the face.
Lip fillers are an instant gratification kind of treatment, which I love! Botox tends to take roughly five days or so to see the finished result. When done correctly the forehead should not appear frozen, just noticeable smoother, giving a subtle more plump appearance to the skin.
The skin on your lips in particular over the life span is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar. However, as your skin ages you lose hyaluronic acid causing lines to appear and the thinning of the lips.
Having a bit of filler when done correctly can dramatically improve the appearance of the lips. Obviously, it is up to the individual in consultation with an aesthetic professional how plump you want them.
Dr Victoria was very conscious of making sure that my results were balanced and symmetrical. Some of the biggest complaints I hear is around asymmetry which is why it is so important to see an experienced professional. Ultimately, it is up to you how big you want your lips. There are a lot of arguments online about this and honestly it all comes down to personal yet INFORMED choice.
Knowledge is power people!!
