If you follow me on this blog, you may know that I am a lover of all things skincare. My favourite brands in skincare include Filorga, Murad, Kiehl’s and Prevage. Why? Because all these brands have a whole load of science behind their formulas and products. So, when I heard that the new PREVAGE Progressive Renewal Treatment had launched, I had to find out more. What is it? An intensive, 4-week, at-home face peeling treatment formulated to encourage skin renewal while the powerful antioxidants provide protection so skin looks smoother, brighter and younger. I caught up with the lovely Any Skyotte-Mosbaek, Regional Training Manager for Elizabeth Arden who talked me through the benefits of Progressive Renewal. Any Skyotte-Mosbaek, Regional Training Manager for Elizabeth Arden [Sarah Sian, Beauty Editor] Tell me about the science behind Progressive Renewal Treatment? [Any Skytte-Mosbaek] It’s scientific but easy to understand. Progressive RenewalTreatment is based around alpha hydroxy acid (AHA and polyhydroxy acid (PHA). PHA's have larger molecules and offer gentler exfoliation while PHA's have moisturisation and skin strengthening benefits. It also contains Idebenone, a supercharged antioxidant that helps to protect the newly-revealed skin cells from day to day environmental factors. The treatment also keeps the skin’s pH levels optimally low so you get maximum results from the formula each week. [SS] Why do you need different dosages? [AM] Well that’s because your skin gets used to the AHA so you need to up the dosage slowly each week to get the results you want. [SS] When is the best time to apply? [AM] Progressive Renewal should be used at night. Apply onto cleansed skin. When you sleep, your skin repairs itself so Progressive renewal gives skin the nutrients it needs while you sleep. [SS] How do you apply? [AM] Apply all over the face and massage well. Make sure you wait 20 minutes with the progressive AHA before you apply anymore products so it penetrates deep into the skin. [SS] What skin type/age is this targeted towards? [AM] This is a skin renewal treatment so it’s ideal for any skin type and age. For younger skin environmental factors can make skin look dull and tired. For mature skin, ageing factors can take its toll. As this has skin resurfacing benefits, it’s ideal for all. For younger skin you can you use twice a year. For more mature skin, you can use it more regularly. The best way to give it a go is to head down to the Elizabeth Arden counter at Debenhams Oxford for a Progressive Skin Renewal Treatment Speed Service. The best bit…it only takes 15 minutes. Shop the new Progressive Renewal Treatment by Prevage

Thanks! @FranMcC Elemis is amazing, I would recommend a cleanser by Kiehls, love the Kiehl's Cleansing Oil.

@LydiaA wrote: Hi Team Beauty What are your top tips on how to make your make up last through the day and into the night? What products do you use to turn your day look into a night look? Thank you :) Lydia Hi @LydiaA A good setting spray is what you need to help make your make up stay put. I highly recommend Urban Decay All Nighter. If you want to take your look from day to night, the best and easiest option is to wear a nude lip in the day and go bold for the evening, Try this one from Lipstick Queen, it's super plush. x

Also - have you got any good recommendations for make up that's light and gym-friendly? (hiding those bags in the mornings!) RPS Hi @RosiePS I feel your pain, dark circles are a beautymare. Firstly, I suggest getting lots of sleep. Have a shot every morning of tumeric, ginger and carrot. The tumeric will work from within to make your skin clearer and brighter. I would then use Optim-Eyes Patch 2 X 8 Pairs - Filorga and Filorga Eyes Absolute Ultimate Ant-ageing eye Cream. Massage into the skin. Both products are created by a dermatologist so there's a lot of science behind these products. Let me know how it goes x

Wherever your wedding - city, country or beach - you'll need a least 3 months to prepare your beauty routine to make sure you have your best head to toe complexion on your wedding day. 5-6 months to go Kick off your wedding beauty prep by taking the time to exfoliate head-to-toe at least once a week. Investing in powerful skincare is your fast-track to a beautiful skin. Add a nourishing facial oil, intense eye cream and hydrating moisturiser to your skincare arsenal for best results. We recommend: Lancome Visionnaire Skin Corrector Serum, Bobbi Brown Skin Clarifier and Oil Control, YSL Forever Youth Liberator, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. 3-4 months to go: Start putting together a moodboard of some hairstyles and make up looks that you like. If you're thinking about self-tan, start experimenting now. It's not hard to do but with practice, it gets even easier so you'll be a dab hand at it as your wedding day approaches. We recommend: Dior Bronze Self tanning Jelly, Sisley Phyto-Touche Matte Sun Gel, Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion, Clarins Self Tan Delicious Cream. 1-2 months to go: Groomed brows can define your whole face.

We recommend: Dior Dioshow All Day Waterproof Brow Ink, Benefit Gimme Brow Volumising, Nars Brow Gel, Kat Von D Super Brow Pomade. 2 weeks to go: Treat yourself to a facial that can boost skin radiance, shrink pores and calm stressed skin.

We recommend: Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Brightening Night Capsules, Filorga NCEF Night Mask Cream, Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, Glamglow Supermud, Clearing Treatment. 3 days to go: Get waxed at least 3 days before your big day so skin can have time to settle. Use smoothing and calming moisturisers to reduce redness and minimise irritation so that skin feels soft by the time your big day arrives. We recommend: Elemis Targeting Toning Moisturiser, Clinique Deep Comfort Body Lotion, L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Body, Origins Hydrating Body Cream. 2 days to go Get a manicure and pedicure. Opt for chip-free or long-lasting polishes and treatments with staying power. Gel polishes are a favourite during wedding season. Treat your cuticles too with an oil so that hands and feet look perfect. We recommend: Dior Vernis Grege, Ciate Gelology Cookies and Cream Nail Polish, Nails Inc SOS and Vitamin E Nail Duo, Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment.

In a recent article in the Daily Mail, the Nars Radiant Moisturiser SPF 30 is credited by customers for curing breakouts, scarring and dark circles. This make up and skincare wonder at just £30 has become a cult favourite and has been hailed as a beauty must-have according to the Daily Mail. It has received no less than a four star rating and has been praised by customers for 'curing' acne breakouts, dark eye circles and hyperpigmentation in as little a for weeks. What we say... Sarah Sian Beauty Editor 'About a month ago I noticed that the dark circles under my eyes were getting worse. I tried to disguise using a concealer and foundation but it looked too cakey. I opted for the Nars Radiant Tinted moisturiser that literally glides effortlessly onto the skin and blended in seamlessly to give a natural and radiant finish. It's really lightweight and oil-free which is an added bonus so it doesn't slip. Infused with naturally derived botanicals and ingredients that work hard to give skin a much-needed moisture boost throughout the day. Even after late nights over Christmas and New Year, I started to notice that the dark circles had reduced. It's now my handbag staple'.

When you buy a fragrance you want to get the most from it. Here are a few must-do tips on how to make your favourites last all night. Tip 1 Apply right after your shower and before you get dressed as the moisture from the water helps to lock in the scent. Tip 2 Use Vaseline on the areas you're spraying as this also helps to lock-in the fragrance on your skin. Tip 3 Spray into the air and walk through it so it goes onto your clothes and hair as well as your skin. Tip 4 Don't rub your wrists together as this breaks the notes so it will fade quicker. Tip 5 Know your pulse points. Pulse points include your wrists, on your neck, below your midriff, behind your knees and on your calves and ankles. When you spritz below your midriff, behind your knees and on your calves and ankles it allows the fragrance to rise. Long-lasting fragrances we recommend are: Armani Si features sweet blackcurrant tones balanced with light, florals that are perfect for everyday. Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is a full-bodied, fragrance that features an array of floral notes including centfolia rose, India osmanthus, catleya orchid and sambac jasmine. Lancome La Nuit Tresor is woody floriental with a blend of fresh raspberry, frankincense and vanilla and black rose. Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon has a unique blend of caramel notes mixed with soft top notes, a milkier middle and deep base notes. Lancome's La Vie est Belle features a beautiful blend of iris palida, jasmine sambac, absolute orange blossom and absolute patchouli essence.
