Magdalena Frackowiak and Natalia Vodianova’s soothing skincare saviour – Eau Thermale Avène Water Spray, £6.50 for 150ml from Boots
Catwalk regular Magdalena Frackowiak thinks it is “brilliant” and Russian model Natalia Vodianova uses it to wash her face instead of tap water
Recommend by dermatologists and with proven clinical properties, the Avène water can be used to soothe a whole host of skin irritations such as sunburn, prickly heat and eczema. It can also be used to tone the skin as part of a three step cleansing regime, to set make-up and refresh skin on a hot day.
The soothing, anti-irritating and anti-free radical water comes from a spring in the south of France, which has taken a 40 year journey through the Cévennes Mountains, resulting in naturally bacteriologically pure water. A film of silica is left on the skin, protecting the surface and leaving it feeling soft and comfortable. Thanks to the low mineral content in the water, as well as its neutral pH , it does not sting, burn or dry out skin and can even be used on broken skin.

“Supermodel’s hair gets badly damaged with all the styling. Viviscal really works – I saw a major difference in three months – to make the hair stronger and more resistant.” – Sasha Pivivarova
The principal ingredient AminoMar CTM was originally developed in Finland in the 80s, when a professor discovered that the Inuits' great hair and skin was a result of their fish and protein rich diet. By isolating the key ingredient molecules to replicate the Inuits’ secret of beautiful hair, he created AminoMar CTM, the ground breaking proprietary marine protein complex. Following the use of Viviscal for six months, the Swedish Alopecia Society found that 95% of patients showed regrowth of hairii. Since the launch Viviscal has been tried, tested and recommended by doctors, dermatologists, trichologists and hair stylists worldwide.

International makeup artist Yin Lee’s SPF secret - Colladeen® Visage, £18.95 for 60 tablets from www.naturesbest.co.uk
“I have been taking these supplements for the last 8 weeks and can definitely see an improvement in my skin.”- Yin Lee
In a UK first, a clinical study showed a daily tablet could significantly improve skin firmness, reduce wrinkle depth and even provide a natural sun protection factor (SPF) of 10 in 12 weeks and SPF of 15 in 24 weeks. The little pink tablet Colladeen® Visage – a potent mix of natural plant extracts high in lutein and anthocyanidins – has attracted much media attention and incredible sales.
Nutritionist Dr Sam Christie PhD comments: “This is a true gem of a product both in terms of its astounding regenerative effects on ageing skin but also its affordability. Having closely followed the scientific evolution of these flavonoid (anthocyanidins) and carotenoid (lutein) plant-based materials over the years since my own clinical work, it's clear they have multiple effects on skin tissue. Colladeen Visage reduces consequences of ageing on skin such as wrinkles, lack of firmness and also offers a moderate sun-protection”.
