World-renowned beauty and skin expert Nilam Holmes, founder of HD Brows, talks about the launch of her new cosmetic brand and the celebrity visitors to her Dermaspa clinic in MK this month…
I am back from a crazy busy month working at my other clinic in LA. There really is no rest for the wicked as I landed and then went straight from the airport to treat a secret super VIP.
I was feeling really run down so I booked myself in to see The Herbalist’s Edison Levine, our visiting clinic osteopath James Davies, and our IV vitamin drip specialist Dr Bhatt at my clinic Dermaspa for a wellness MOT before I did my first day back in the clinic.
Self care of the mind is even more important so I also saw Christian Baker, who is a hypnotherapist/life/business coach who helps me organise my busy mind.
This month I have some really exciting news. I can finally announce that I am launching my new cosmetic brand Eyebrowqueen at the end of the month. You may know I was the founder of HD Brows and I have now created a beautiful new brand with a compact line of essential eyebrow grooming and styling products.
Celebrity visitors to Dermaspa
This month while I’ve been away we have had my TV favourite Christine Bleakley (pictured above, right) in for some lovely facials and drag icon Michelle Visage (above) getting ready for Strictly Come Dancing.
Treatment of the month
This month it has to be the Skin Pen precision micro needling. I performed almost 80 of these treatments within a month in LA. It creates millions of micro holes into the skin in a controlled way to induce repair and new collagen production.
It really transforms skin texture and tone and is great for repairing sun damage, scars and wrinkles. In fact, it is used in the Chelsea and Westminster burns unit to improve scarring.
This is an easy, inexpensive one you can do while you sleep! Use a silk pillow case at night to keep your skin and hair young. The silk won’t draw out as much moisture from the skin and hair as cotton or polyester.
The smoothness means you will have less hair breakage from rubbing and your skin won’t crease as easily so you won’t wake up with those sleep lines. Take it a step further and get silk sheets and wear silk pyjamas.
