It’s not exactly news that social media has caused a spike in the number of people seeking facial (and other types of) surgery to look good. The pressures of trying to look their best on social media such as Facebook – not to mention dating apps – have resulted in people looking for ways to outshine their contemporaries. And it’s no surprise that it’s the famous faces, including those of film stars, sports stars and royalty, that we seek to […]

Forget the fruity sweating and come to us

It’s summer – well, in a British sort of way…one minute we’ve got a heatwave caused by a ‘Spanish plume’, then we get a cold showery day. But either way, when it gets hot, no-one wants to feel, smell or look all sweaty. Over the years there have been various remedies for sweating but surely none more wacky than the one featured in this piece from the Femail section of the Daily Mail. Yes, in the section ‘In the limelight’ […]

And the age for change is…39

New research has showed that the average age a woman first has cosmetic surgery is 39 – and it’s dropped below 40 for the first time. The previous average, in 2012, was 42. Men are also opting for cosmetic surgery at a younger age – in the same time period, their average age has gone down from 47 to 45. You can read all about the research by clicking this link to the Daily Mail online. But, to summarise, it […]

It’s all about the fibroblasts!

It’s official – fibroblasts hold the key to skin regeneration. Fibroblasts are a type of cell that is found in the connective tissue of the body’s organs. Here, they produce proteins such as collagen – and most of us have heard something about how important collagen is in keeping our skin looking fresh and young. They are the key to skin rejuvenation and, here at Aesthetics of Essex, where we are always determined to boost our knowledge of what treatments […]

Boost your bust

Go bust! They say that countries can go through ‘boom and bust’ years. If you were to judge the UK on the latter – well, sort of! – you’d definitely say the emphasis would be on ‘bust’. In terms of size, that is… A study featured in the Daily Mail online (see link below) has reported that the figure of the average British woman has changed dramatically over the last six decades. In the 1950s, the average-sized British woman was […]

Perfect pout

You’ve followed all the beauty advice – you’ve buffed your lips, chosen the right lip colour for you/your outfit, picked the right type of lipstick (matte, gloss) and used lip liner judiciously, with the aim of NOT looking like the mad old bat played by Bette Davis in the film “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” – see the scary pix in this link, especially the first pic in the second row…;_ylt=A9mSs2thRhBZpB4AxBxLBQx.;_ylu=X3oDMTByZmVx In theory, you should look great.

Scouse brow

“Who’s” got a Scouse brow now? So ‘who’ was that almost certainly sporting a ‘Scouse Brow’ on one of TV’s hottest programmes this month? It was none other than Pearl Mackie, the lucky lady who landed the much-coveted role as the new Doctor Who companion, ‘Bill Potts’! The reviews were in and they were pretty much universally ‘rave’ ones. Pearl certainly took the small screen by storm and was an equal match for the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi. Here she […]

Barcode lines

Banish the barcode lines! Ladies, we hate to break it to you, but just when you thought the world had run out of unpleasant epithets for the bits of your body you don’t like, up pops a new one. We’ve all heard of trout pouts, bingo wings, saddlebags, cankles…now how about ‘barcode lines’?
