Perfect skin: Jessica Simpson goes make-up free for Marie Claire

April 13, 2010

Jessica Simpson has dared to do what no other woman on earth would dream of doing, for millions of Marie Claire readers to see: she’s posed make-up free on the front cover.

As the media force-feeds us images of ‘perfect’ women on a daily basis, how refreshing that a woman as famous as Jessica Simpson has had the guts to pose makeup-less for the front cover of one of the most popular lifestyle magazines in the US.

No make-up, no retouching, no regrets!’, was the strapline of the cover story, which was printed on the back of her one-off TV show that follows her on a journey through society’s obsession with image. Jessica’s is also a face that is commonly associated with a US acne treatment, and has spoken openly about her own battle with the skin condition. Now she’s showing off her clear skin for millions to see!

We always tell our clients that there is no such thing as ‘perfection’, but it’s about reaching a level of personal perfection and being comfortable in your own skin. Once you have achieved that, the sky is your limit.

With great skin comes great confidence and we bet that many of our clients would happily pose for Marie Claire’s front cover minus airbrushing. SkinGenesis skin treatments are designed to rejuvenate, rebalance and tone the skin and provide you with a look and complexion that would look great on the cover of a fashion magazine.

We acknowledge the fact that everyone has little niggles about their appearance and things that they would love to change about themselves, but we believe in accepting our own uniqueness and learning how to control any skin problems, which then allows you to accept them. Jessica admits that she would love to be taller, but accepts a little bump on her nose, which she says is an imperfection to everyone else, yet it’s her perfection to herself.

Wednesday 17th February 2010

Here at SkinGenesis we’ve launched a new trend-setting cosmetics range called YOUNGBLOOD Mineral Cosmetics.

After taking the USA by storm, YOUNGBLOOD Mineral Cosmetics already enjoy a wide celebrity following and British beauty Cheryl Cole is just one the brand’s latest fans.

Skin care conscious fashionistas in Leeds, Manchester and Chester can now take advantage of the benefits of this young, vibrant mineral cosmetics range being stocked at SkinGenesis.

Clinically tested and developed alongside leading doctors, YOUNGBLOOD uses pure, natural minerals with no preservatives, petroleum dyes, zinc oxide, fragrances or talc. The range acts as both a skin treatment and an effective skin coverage and is suitable for all skin types, ages and ethnicities.

Peter Beard, our director of treatments, said: “Many of our clients come in for skin treatments and like to apply make up before leaving the clinic, so we’re really excited about being able to offer a cosmetics range that not only covers the skin beautifully, but is also good for it.

“The properties of YOUNGBLOOD mineral cosmetics perfectly compliment the skin treatments we offer. This means our clients can benefit from the purest form of cosmetics that cover beautifully without being detrimental to the underlying skin, which is a common problem with other make up brands. The protective and soothing qualities of YOUNGBLOOD make it ideal for our clinic.”

YOUNGBLOOD’s short list of ingredients signifies the simplicity of the brand, distinguishing it from other ‘mineral’ ranges. YOUNGBLOOD is a blend of 100% pure minerals that not only sooth the skin, but also offer adjustable, non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic coverage with a perfectly flawless, sun protecting finish.

Clean and lightweight, YOUNGBLOOD allows your skin to breathe and wont block pores or cause irritation, making it suitable for all skin conditions: sensitive, oily to normal to dry, rosacea and acne, hyperpigmentation and sun damaged, broken capillaries and even allergy sensitive skin.

The range’s multipurpose benefits also make it water-resistant and transfer-proof, meaning your make-up will last all day without touch-ups and in loose, pressed and liquid formulations there is an endless choice of shades and coverage for all skin tones.
