BEAUTY FILE Skin DEEP


From ancient traditions to futuristic research, Jo Foley discovers what’s new in beauty PLUS what is also glamorous and desirable


THE FUTURE OF SKINCARE


A futuristic style serum containing EGF (Epidermal Growth Factors), the first of its kind derived from plant cells, was a runaway success when it was launched just a couple of months ago at Boots. Conceived, researched and produced in Iceland in a collaboration of biochemists and dermatologists, it helps stimulate the skin’s own renewal process. All you need is a few drops every night of BIOEFFECT EGF serum, and fans have detected improvements in the look and texture of their skin after only four weeks. Derived from barley grown in greenhouses in volcanic ash and watered with the purest spring water, it is the most exciting thing in skincare this year. From select branches of Boots or online at www.bioeffect.co.uk, the Serum costs £49 for 5ml and £125 for 15ml.


Nail polish has come a long way from pillar-box reds and pearly pinks. Now any colour under the sun is available, from khaki to turquoise and hundreds more. However, the fashion now is for varnishes which are good for your nails and free from toxins such as DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde. The Organic Pharmacy has just such a range and have recently added to it with funky shades like Deep Grey and Merlot Shimmer (almost black with a hint of red and shimmer) as well as Silver and Gold. £10 each from the Organic Pharmacy; 0844 800 8399 or www. theorganicpharmacy.com.


GLAMOUR AT YOUR FINGERTIPS


POTATO SPONGE?


I don’t suppose you have ever thought of cleaning your face with a potato product? Well, the Japanese have been using the Konjac potato for centuries as a beauty treatment. Now you can get this most efficient cleanser, which also exfoliates and moisturises, in sponge form. It’s completely natural, made from vegetable fibres, is softer than a loofah and ideal for sensitive skins. It is highly absorbent – up to 20 times its own weight – and you can use it with your normal cleanser or on its own. From £5.50 from the www.konjacspongecompany.com


SMOULDERING EYES


Smoky, smouldering eyes are a great look for after dark and Chantecaille, that clever French cosmetic house, has just made getting that look a whole lot easier. They have just launched a gel


eye pencil that makes outlining both the upper and lower lid much easier, and you can use it as thickly or finely as you wish. Add to this their new formula Longest Lash Mascara,


which contains a unique peptide offer- ing a 25% increase in lash length after


two weeks. So longer lashes and dramatic liner equal great smoky eyes. Gel Liner Pencil £27, Longest Lash Mascara £60, from Liberty, Fenwick and SpaceNK


MOROCCAN MAGIC


Argan oil comes from the kernel of the argan tree indigenous to Morocco, which has been used since time began for its nutritional, cosmetic and medicinal properties. Its delicate nutty flavour makes it delicious in salad dressings, but its gentle, light texture makes it ideal to help moisturise and nourish the skin. Argan Ultime from Gielly Green is specially formulated for body, face and hair – all from the one bottle. It keeps hair truly glossy as well as acting as a protector in harsh weather conditions or too much sun, while it improves elasticity in the skin as well as keeping moisturised. All for £28.90 from shop.giellygreen.com.
