World-renowned beauty and skin expert Nilam Holmes talks about her ambassadorial role for Global Gift Foundation, prepping Kate Garraway for a hit ITV show and her treatment of the month…
Hi, I’m Nilam, a selfconfessed beauty junkie, and welcome to my beauty column for December. Regular readers will know that I have been in the beauty industry for 28 years and love all aspects of it, from make up, to beauty, to aesthetics.
I’m based between MK – at my clinic Dermaspa – and also Hollywood, where we treat many TV, music and movie stars. But what you might not know is that I am an ambassador for the Global Gift Foundation, founded by Maria Bravo and Eva Longoria.
The annual gala held at the Kimpton Fitzroy was star studded and full of glamour raising money for Variety, the children’s charity. My client and friend Paloma Faith gave a stunning performance and won the women empowerment award, which I had the honour of being awarded last year.
Celebrity visitors to Dermaspa
At the time of writing this we have been prepping a few celebrities to go make up free for ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, one of which is the lovely Kate Garraway.
My EYEBROWQUEEN range has been making lots of red carpet and TV appearances this month also. Celebrity make up artists have been using it on the likes of Pink, Amanda Holden, Katie Piper, Little Mix, Ferne McCann and X Factor Celebrity contestants to name a few.
Treatment of the month – Chinese Medicine
Cupping and acupuncture are both natural alternatives to western medicine. Great for body detox, cold & flu, digestive disorders & pain relief!
We have our resident team, The Herbalist, at Dermaspa so I always jump in for treatment when I have any minor niggles.
Beauty Tip – Switch up your skin care
Our skin changes seasonally and it is important to adjust your skin care accordingly. During the winter months our skin becomes drier and more sensitive as we go from the cold elements to dry heating indoors.
Generally introducing a lip balm day and night, and a more nourishing night cream will do the trick.
