No More Needles

2017 09 02 1218

2016 saw a decrease in cosmetic surgery procedures, for the first time in a decade as 40% less people opted for invasive treatments, according to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Coupled with that, it was reported that 7 million pounds was paid out in compensation for botched cosmetic surgery over the past decade. With less people opting to go under the knife, and with so many alternative, non-evasive enhancements on the market – we’ve rounded up the best.

Say No To...Dermal Fillers

A shot a day keeps needles at bay. LQ Skin, Hair & Nails (£24.99, Boots) is a daily 50ml liquid vitamin supplement that contains 7000 mg of marine collagen, resveratrol, Hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, silicon, selenium and vitamins. LQ Skin, Hair & Nails is scientifically formulated to help maintain and support healthy skin, hair and nails. It’s liquid formula hits the blood stream quickly, and leaves skin plump, revitalised and healthy.

Say No To...Restylane

Mix either one, two or three drops of the Collagen Plumping Mixer with the Collagen Plumping Gloss. It contains an effective peptide that signals the lip to produce more collagen. Glycerin gives a plump, hydrated look while a clever copolymer creates the illusion of smoothness. Just mix, apply and maximise!

Say No To...Laser

RosehipPLUS® Rosehip Oil 50ml (£25, www.treatyourskin.com) contains naturally occurring bioflavonoids and essential fatty acids. Bioflavonoids act as potent antioxidants, helping to reduce free radical damage in the skin and reduce the appearance of imperfections and stretch marks. The essential fatty acids (Omega 3,6 and 9) in the oil help to keep the skin hydrated, moisturised and younger looking.

Say No To...Tattooed Brows
