It’s Body Month in the EF MEDISPA clinics


Now that we’re beyond April showers and summer really does feel like it’s on its way, there’s no better time to start easing yourself into the season with some body-perfecting treatments that still feel like a bit of a treat. Which is exactly why we’re dedicating the month of May to you and your body concerns. Whether you’re one of the twenty-something models who frequent our clinics, or someone a little older who’s dreading the onset of swimsuit season, we women have a shared desire to have smooth, radiant skin, be free from cellulite – and foster a slim healthy version of ourselves. So Biologique Recherche have listened to these concerns and answered women’s prayers with a trio of treatments tailored to meeting your needs.

Want smoother, softer and scale-free skin that’s the perfect canvas for your fake tan? Then the Lotion P50 Pour Corps, skin preparation treatment is for you. Yes, the famous and beloved P50 Lotion has been transposed to the body – and the exfoliating, radiance-giving benefits are sure to boost your body confidence. £40 for 30 minutes.

If you’re feeling sluggish and bloated, try the Gel d’Algues-Detoxifying Treatment in which the focus is a thermal algae wrap to flush out those toxins and make you feel lighter and brighter. £50 for 60 minutes.

For those with cellulite on their mind and dimples on their behind, the Anti-C Slimming Programme is for you. A secret skin weapon of a liquid to powder concoction will be whisked up and vigorously massaged into buttocks, upper arms and thighs to oxygenate the skin and really target the orange peel effect. £80 for 90 minutes.

Back home, you can score extra body boosting brownie points with one of BR’s new kits to complement whichever treatment you chose. Make this your month and you won’t call ‘Mayday’ on your body regimen when June rolls round!




As you know, I’m always hopping around the globe looking for the latest and greatest science-backed products and treatments to halt time on the aging process and make you feel your absolute best. To which end, I’ll soon be jetting off to San Francisco to investigate some very exciting new products lines – more of which next time! In the meantime, we’re launching two futuristic face treatments to keep those lines at bay.

First up, the Stem Cell Eyelift. As we age and spend more and more of our lives squinting over our phones and frowning at our computers (or other halves!) – the fragile skin around our eyes gets crepy and shadowed. Yet in terms of cosmetic solutions, this is a notoriously tricky area of the face to treat. The Stem Cell Eyelift is a revolutionary procedure whereby liposuction is used to remove what we call ‘mother cells’ from another part of the body such as the hips or thighs, then injected back into the eye area to stimulate collagen renewal and restore lost volume. Combined with surgery to resurrect droopy eyelids, yours can look as bright as a button after a two-hour procedure and just one week of downtime.

For lines, wrinkles and acne scarring elsewhere on the face, may we introduce the fabulous Dermapen: A handheld device studded with 12 tiny needles that glides across the surface of the face creating microscopic punctures – or ‘controlled injury’ that spurs the skin into repair mode. We can supercharge results by following up with a cocktail of skin-boosting ingredients such as plumping hyaluronic acid and the AQ Recovery System to ensure that you get an instantly smoother, more radiant complexion that will stand you in good stead for the future!



When it comes to getting in shape for the summer ahead, some people are all about ‘deprivation, deprivation, deprivation’. But me? I’m much more of a believer in letting your inner devil out to play in order to get better, longer lasting results overall. Regular exercise, of course, is the foundation of a healthy mind and body for life. Yet when it comes to food, anyone who’s familiar with the 5:2 diet of ‘calorie cycling’ knows that having a day or few each week when you tuck into something naughty can actually shock your metabolism into working a little harder and faster. So with that in mind, here’s my guide to having a little of what you fancy and still getting fit for summer. Because even angels have to let their inner devil out sometimes..!

Angel: The good little exerciser in me is going to continue my daily workouts of running in the park, boxing and core strengthening with a weeklong bootcamp in Sardinia. Led by personal trainer, Luke Gray, we’re set for seven days of early morning hikes, fat-burning fitness and good-for-you food. And possibly a sneaky Pina Colada here and there…

Devil: I took my children to the restaurant at the fabulous Rosewood Hotel, High Holborn the other day. They’re delectable British dishes using locally sourced ingredients had us salivating over oysters, steak and Yorkshire pudding and yummy cheese.

Angel: ‘Intermittent fasting’ has been something of an industry buzzword of late. I swear by the nil-by-mouth after 6pm approach of fasting overnight to help your body rid itself of excess weight. A few nights a week and this less is more approach is all I need to stay on top of things.

Devil: I always like to try the latest London hotspots. So off I trotted to the new Ivy on the King’s Road for a cocktail or trois. Try their Sloane Ranger – and you won’t be disappointed…

Angel: When your efforts pay-off, it’s time to ensure your skin keeps pace with your weight loss. Because saggy skin and a sexy new bikini do not a good team make. So I’ve been having EF vitamin infusions to help my body detox and rejuvenate my skin so it’s toned and tight. Back home, ill slather on Biologique Recherche Crème Anti-C to stave off cellulite.

Devil: The naughty one in me couldn’t resist taking my hubby to the Art’s Club for his birthday. And just because a regular cake wouldn’t do, I ordered him a giant chocolate bar instead. Definitely a slice of heaven for the devil in me!
