World-renowned beauty and skin expert Nilam Holmes, owner of Dermaspa in MK, writes her second Celebrate:MK column from her clinic in LA, where she has enjoyed work and play.
Welcome to my second beauty column for Celebrate:MK! In case you missed last month’s column, 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 between Milton Keynes at my clinic Dermaspa, and Hollywood where we treat many TV, music and movie stars.
This month I am writing from my clinic in Los Angeles – it’s full on busy as this is the epicentre of glam and clients need to look camera ready all the time.
This week the LA Beauty Con expo was on so there was a huge buzz around everything beauty.
My industry friends Huda and Mona Kattan (@hudabeauty) were in town so we managed to catch up over lunch in Beverly Hills with our mutual friend Eva Longoria (pictured above – I’m on the right!)
Celebrity visitors to Dermaspa.
This month we have had in one of our favourite couples… Michelle Keegan, returning from a long stint filming Our Girl in South Africa, and husband Mark Wright, for a pamper and reboot.
Both had some skin treatments and IV vitamin therapy to help boost the immune system, recover and energise.
Treatment of the month – Collagenwave skin tightening.
This is actually our most popular treatment all year round with real results. We deliver RF energy into the skin at around 43 degrees to tighten the skin. It promotes faster collagen production to lift, firm and help repair fine lines and wrinkles.
Top beauty tip – Dry exfoliation
I’m a big fan of dry brushing… for the body, the face and even the scalp. It’s cheap, fast and easy.
It helps circulation, cellulite, skin tone and exfoliating the scalp prevents hair loss and can stimulate hair growth so it’s great for men.
Use a big brush all over the body and a small brush for the face for a few minutes before you jump in the shower.
