Monday Musings with Special Guest Alessandra Steinherr. What’s in Her Make-Up Bag?

Hello ladies,

Last week I had a skin treatment called ‘Scarlett’ which is used to stimulate collagen production to improve saggy skin and wrinkles and my skin unfortunately reacted quite badly…I think I had not cleaned my face properly as i really broke out,  like a teenager with acne….brought back many memories..

Having a break out was especially tricky as I was joined by the Alex Steinherr, the beauty editor of Glamour magazine,  who has THE most fabulous skin… and was a delight to chat to,  and a good sport….

Below products that I continuously find helpful to relieve skin irritations and redness, as the result of a break out…and some of Alex’s favourite products:

    Hi Trinny

    Loved this facebook live last night, I think Alex did well to stay after the hair incident! Loved all the chat between you both more interesting than some of the questions.

    Hello! Good morning from Portugal! Many congratulations for the blog / vlog is delicious and has been my company in the last months. I am 31 years old and I am pregnant for 7 months. And already, it’s a girl 🙂 today I came to make a request or give a suggestion of content. I would love to know more about skin care during pregnancy and then postpartum especially if we are in the 30’s.
    Kiss kiss
