World-renowned beauty and skin expert Nilam Holmes, owner of Dermaspa in MK, has joined Celebrate:MK as a columnist. She talks us through her busy summer of glamming up a host of celebrities…
Hi, I’m Nilam, a self-confessed beauty junkie!
I have been in the beauty industry for 28 years and love all aspects of it – from make up, to beauty, to aesthetics.
I am based here in Milton Keynes at my clinic Dermaspa, where we treat many stars of TV, music and the movies such as Rita Ora, Marvin and Rochelle Humes, Little Mix, Paloma Faith, Robbie Williams, Amanda Holden and Nicole Scherzinger, to name a few.
I also have a clinic in Hollywood where my clients include Olivia Munn, Lady Gaga and the Kardashians. I have been so busy prepping lots of clients for some exciting events recently.
Who went to see the Spice Girls reunite for their long awaited UK tour? The girls have been regular clients of mine for years and it was so handy for me this time as they were rehearsing in Milton Keynes.
I am Team Sporty by the way! I’ve also been working with Pink for her Beautiful Trauma world tour between NYC, LA and the UK.
We are right in the middle of wedding season and I had the privilege to get my friends Carl and Rachael Froch ready for their beautiful wedding in Italy.
I love make up and glamming Rachael was an absolute delight. MK hair stylist Joe Tse and I went for a romantic glam look and she looked stunning.
Treatment of the month: Hydrafacial.
It’s perfect for the summer – it’s a really deep cleansing treatment, a little bit like having a vax all over your face.
The machine pumps solutions onto the skin to emulsify dirt and oils and sucks them all out whilst exfoliating all the dead skin cells away. We then infuse super hydrating solutions to plump and hydrate.
Beauty tip of the month: Now we are well into the summer and holiday months, my tip is to always use an SPF.
It is essential not just for anti-aging but for skin health. I like to layer a moisturiser with some SPF, plus an additional SPF, and then I use a foundation with an SPF too.
