Currently Craving: Premier-Ready Skin


It’s felt like a peculiarly long winter, with too time spent staring in the mirror, wondering about the passage of time. I’m also guilty of over-attachment to my phone; daily doom-scrolling any number of apocalyptic scenarios.

Therefore, CurrentBody Skin’s LED Light Therapy Mask is the object of my craving this month. Red LED boosts collagen production, which in turn helps heal sun damage and scarring, and also firms and reduces fine lines. The mask is designed to deliver professional-grade stimulation, all from the comfort of my sofa and the 10 minutes spent wearing it each day is doubling up as time spent practicing a little mindfulness and investing in personal wellbeing.

Lying down with the red light emitting and illuminating my interior view makes me feel like I’m once again on a beach, eyes closed against the sun and indulging in the annual switch-off. Fans include Kristen Davis, Renee Zellwegger and Carey Mulligan, plus there are hundreds of glowing online reviews from devoted customers.

Yes, the initial outlay of £279 is considerable and results don’t come overnight, but consistency will pay off if more balanced, brighter, even skin is your goal.

Pineapple is my pick of the bunch this month. Rich in enzymes, this is a super-fruit worthy of its moment in the May sun.

Although at time of writing we’ve experienced both sunny days and snow-filled skies here in Oxfordshire, by May it should be fairly safe to assume that a seasonal switch-up will be required for your skincare. Here are the products we’re excited about.

Dear readers, gather round as I have great news of a fabulous (and also British) brand that you need to know about; Willowberry. Founded in 2017 by ex-Beauty Editor, Jenni Retourné, this is self-described ‘skincare for grown ups’. No farting around with trying to navigate the endless euphemisms for anti-aging, simply skin care designed to help your skin to its best possible self.

I’m just going to admit it. My hair can only be described as a bit 2020 in that my lockdown locks are still abundantly present I’m sticking with it for now and so am in need of a brush that can manage my mane.
