DOWN THE HATCH WITH BEAUTY PILLS

Posted by 04.11.13

Lotions and creams are all very well. But increasingly it’s being proven that you can step up how your skin looks and behaves not only by targeting what you eat and drink, but also by supplementing the skin through liquids and pills.

Nicky Kinnaird, founder of Space NK is convinced this is the future. “Internal beauty is the way forward,” she says. “The external can only go so far.” Hence, her enthusiasm for a new beauty supplement that is taken orally, Ascenta Skin ($80). In days of yore, mothers made their children drink cod liver oil for its health benefits. Ascenta Skin is a much more palatable version specifically for skin health and backed by plenty of research, plus you o

ERNO LASZLO IS ALIVE AND WELL IN SOHO

Posted by 04.03.13

As skincare consumers, we are always after the new. But there are some brands that are worth revisiting, learning from and embracing. And one of the best is back and reformulated for the 21st century.

HARRODS ADORES DIOR

Posted by 03.22.13

As a fashion and beauty house, Christian Dior is all about French chic. As a store, the UK’s Harrods is all about luxury. So can the twain meet? Yes, indeed, at the Dior at Harrods extravaganza, running now through April 14. It is the ultimate match made in beauty and fashion heaven that reaches an entente cordiale between the two countries, all in Central London.

Go back in time to Paris of 1947. M. Dior launches a fashion collection that came to be known as the New Look. It may be hard to imagine its impact given the London or Paris of today with their cheap, fast fashion, but for women in France, who had been deprived of new clothes for nearly ten years, it was a fresh breath o
