The market for collagen products is booming with global sales expected to jump over 6% to $6.6 billion by 2025, according to a recent industry report.

But is collagen just a trend and if so, should you be taking collagen too?

With so many collagen products now on the market, it’s important to know the facts so you can make an informed choice.

Collagen - the facts

Collagen is primary a structural protein found in the body, making up over 30% of the whole-body protein content. Put simply, it’s the glue that holds our bodies together.

It is abundant throughout the body, making up 80% of the total protein in the skin, but is also abundant in connective tissue, bones and all major organs.

Collagen, in the form of elongated fibrils, is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin. It’s also found in the cornea, cartilage, blood vessels, the gut and even intervertebral discs.

The bad news

From our early to mid-20’s we start to lose some of our body’s natural store of this ‘super glue’ protein. Loss varies between individuals but scientists agree that it is an average of 1.5% loss of the total bodies store per year every year from approximately 20-25 years old. By the time you are 45 you’ve lost roughly 30% of your body’s collagen resource.

The results of collagen loss

The signs of collagen loss start visually, the changing shape of your face, loss of skin elasticity, formation of lines and wrinkles, but it’s the internal issues that we really have to worry about. The loss of strength in ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage and bone. Long term, these issues can seriously impact on how you feel and move.

Indian Head Massage


Massaging the head can do much to relieve stress and tension that fill our day to day life.

The massage involves controlled movements such as spider walking, root pulling and combing. This treatment focuses mainly on the face and scalp, but should include the upper back, neck, shoulders and arms.

This massage has a strong effect on the three higher chakras of the seven -mind, body and spirit. Chakra (wheel) is the energy that we need to remain balance.

As the massage works on the shoulders and neck the relief of tension is felt almost immediately. As well as easing headaches and stress it also helps scalps and hair problems, aids localised blood and lymphatic circulation relieves eye strain muscles tension.

This treatment is particularly good for people who are wheelchair bound or partially immobile. Hair should be clean before this treatment is done also the client is fully clothed.

3 Essential Nutrients;


Collagen; Skin is made up of 90% collagen protein.

Collagen is also a key component of the hair and nails.

A collagen-rich diet helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.

A homemade bone broth is a rich source of collagen and will help strengthen nails and hair.

If you consume a well-rounded diet that supports collagen production and absorption (eg. Vitamin C) you're likely to see its benefits on your health.


Hyaluronic Acid; This lubricating fluid is produced naturally by the body.

It has a large capacity to retain water in the skin.

If you suffer from dry scalp, dandruff of flaky skin increasing the hyaluronic acid intake could promote the much needed hydration to make them stronger and healthier.

Broths containing chicken/beef bones are a good source of hyaluronic acid.


Zinc; Zinc supports hair growth. Lack of zinc can cause dry and flaky scalp, and in extreme cases baldness.

Like vitamins E, zinc acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to tackle skin conditions such as eczema and acne.

Nuts and seeds such as almonds and pumpkin seeds are high in zinc.

Probiotics are also needed to increase the absorption rate of zinc.

Make sure to include fermented foods in your diet such as Kefir, yoghurt and raw cheeses.

Swedish Massage


A Swedish doctor named Per Henrik Ling developed the Swedish massage in the 1700s.

The term Swedish massage refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.

The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles strained by flushing the tissues of Lactic Acid, uric acid and other metabolic waste.

It increases circulation without increasing the heart load.

 It stretches the ligament and tendons keeping them supple and pliable.

 Swedish massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system and soothes the nerves themselves at the same time

 It reduces stress both emotional and physical and is suggested in a regular program for stress management.

I am now at a stage in my life where long hours and stressful times are showing on my face, what do I, do give up work and life or fine something that would help to put the lift back in my face without going for infections.

I have had Botox before at first it was great but over time I found myself frowning something I didn't do before Botox ,so I came to the decision that this treatment was not for me I wanted something a little more natural .

After 21 years as a beauty therapist and having tried quite a few treatments to see how well they work not only  for myself but to see if they would work for my client as well.

 I was introduced to Rewind 10 at first I thought this was okay for home use so before retailing to my clients I thought it would be best if I tried the product myself.

 After reading the instructions yes just like my client I have to read the instructions before using, having cleansed and toner I applied Rewind 10 Face and Neck Moisturiser to the lower half of my face then started the treatment from my neck to my jawline

I was very surprise by the strength of the Rewind 10 and the result that I received from this treatment, I am very happy to recommend this treatment to my client, 10 out of 10 for Rewind 10.

Tip of the day:

2 Essential Nutrients for a healthy hair, nails and skin;

Having a balanced and healthy diet packed with vitamins, minerals and amino acids are necessary for overall wellbeing.

Listed below is the key nutrients that could boost your diet to support shiny hair, radiant skin and strong nails.

Vitamin A This is an essential vitamin for healthy skin. It supports skin cell regeneration to help heal wounds and acne scars.

Vitamin A deficiency may cause hair follicles to become plugged with protein, making the skin scaly, dry and rough and causing a bumpy appearance. This is most common on the face, back, neck, forearm, thighs and abdomen.

For clear skin and glowing complexion make sure to include plenty of fish oils; cod liver oil, sardine and salmon oil, leafy greens,red and yellow vegetables, eggs, and of course carrots in your diet.


Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant and helps manage free radical damage. It's essential in the production and absorption of collagen within the body.

Vitamin C deficiency can cause a dry and flaky scalp, split ends and spots.

Top up your vitamin c reserves daily by including foods that are rich in vitamin c such as oranges, parsley , red peppers, kale, brussel sprouts and berries.

Special offer for the week

Lava shell massage is a type of massage therapy. In this therapy the therapist uses Tiger-striped clam shells as their massage tools, giving this treatment a unique and relaxing edge when compared to other types of massage.

The origin of Tiger-striped clam shells are traced back to the Philippines where they were harvested for food, and have been for hundreds of years. They used to just discard the shells. But when their relaxing properties and use in massage were discovered they started to recycle them for Lava shell massages.

It’s a warm massage, and the heat is generated within the shells by inserting ‘activator liquid’ and a ‘lava gel sachet’. Sometimes other properties like minerals are added, but the real healing and soothing comes from the heat and the shape of the shells.

Benefits of a Lava Shell Massage

  • Increases circulation of blood and oxygen in the body
  • Boost and stimulates lymph activity
  • Soothes aches and pains
  • Relaxes and rejuvenates the body
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Improves and strengthens the immune system

Top Tips for this Week


Full Body Exfoliation


One of the most soothing and healthy things you can do for your skin is to regularly exfoliate it.

Brushing the skin or using a body scrub to gently remove dead skin cells and allow for younger skin to be revealed.

Exfoliation also works on the lymphatic system helping your body to remove toxins.

It is particularly helpful if you are on a dieting programme.

Tiredness and lethargy are signs that your lymphatic system is not working as it should be and exfoliation is a great way to kick start it again.

This is also a great way to keep a tan alive.

Happy Sunday Everyone

On Saturday after finishing work I took the bus to Lidl to do my weekly vegetable shopping was only in Lidl for about 45 minutes then I got a  bus back home.

I got off the bus and walked across the street, walking in front of me is a very frail looking person in green pyjamas and a pink dressing gown wearing pink slippers. 

Now last was very cold and windy so what is the person doing on the street in just her nightclothes, it is now 8.30pm and dark.

I stopped and ask if I could help her, she said " no dear I am on my way to see a friend" I asked her where her friend lived she didn't know her friends name or address.

We walked for a little while but I knew it was too much for her so when a young man stopped to ask if he could help I asked him to call either the ambulance or the police. 

 I have now wrapped Dora she said this was her name  in my pashmina to keep her warm, the young man and another passer-by stayed until the police came. 

We only had to wait about 10mins before the police turned up and the lady was helped into their car and we all left and went on our ways, I hope she got home safe.

She was a very sweet lady just a little confused , there were other people on the street last night that just walked right by her with out stopping how do they justified their action.

We all need to be responsible for those whom need help no matter how small the help maybe that they  need.

Thing Women With Healthy Skin Do

Although your genes determine how well or badly your skin will age, the way you nurture your skin can slow down the ageing process. Here are a few habits of women that look after their skin to preserve its beauty year after year.

They Drink Water;

Lack of water can seriously damage your skin and your overall wellbeing. even oily skin can get dehydrated and if you're not consuming enough water you will likely have an uneven skin tone.

They Eat Healthy:

It is said that poor nutrition is as damaging to your skin as smoking. Sugars accelerate the skins ageing process by breaking down collagen in your skin.

They use sunscreen:

Sun exposure damages the skin. Applying a sun cream high in SPF will minimise the free radical damage caused by the sun's UV lights.

Day Time Routine


Yesterday we talked about Late-Night Beauty Tips, today we need to remember our day time routine.

For the day it is as simply as:




SERUM after toning

EXFOLIATE once to twice per week

MASK once per week

Now let's get on with our day

Late Night Beauty Tips

Patsy on Wed 20 Feb


Few of us expect to wake up looking great, a few steps that early morning stunners include in their beauty regime.

(1) Drink Water - Alcohol, coffee, soft drinks can all increase toxins level in the our body and these can build up in our skin. Hydrate yourself with water, especially as bed time nears.

(2) Get Rich - Choose a rich, creamy moisturiser as your sleeping beauty partner. Our skin absorbs more moisture at night to enable rapid repair.

A rich moisturiser is not for everyone so a serum or lotion can be used.

(3) Sleep Deep - If getting enough sleep is a challenge, experiment a little. Nightwear, bed times, light levels and proximity to phone and clocks can all be tweaked to help you get the hours your body craves.

(4) The eyes have it - When applying night creams, avoid the eye area to minimise irritation Try sleeping with a black-out eye mask to promote blissful sleep.

(5) Pillow Talk - Even if you're religious about removing your make- up and cleaning your skin before bed, be sure to change your pillowcase regularly: they can harbour bacteria.

And buy the best pillow you can afford

What to Do with Your Mask Once You Get Home

Patsy on Thu 14 Feb


What to Do with Your Mask Once You Get Home

You had a great facial you have a therapist that knows your concerns.You have monthly facials with the same therapist you are both working together to get the best result possible, so you have now purchased your mask on the advice of your therapist.

You are now alone at home with your mask ,you can sort of remember what your therapist said about using it, but you are not sure and the instruction on the back is too small to read what to do?

You have Oily / Oily Combination skin you have your Purifying/ Balancing mask.

Try using you mask twice per week on clean skin, if you have a break out put your masks on the new breakout over night to bring down the redness.

You have Normal/Dry skin so you are now using a Hydrating and Revitalising mask.

Use your mask twice per week on clean skin. There are times when the skin is not looking as radiant as you would like, try leaving your mask on overnight.

Don't go too heavy with the mask you don't want it all over your pillow.

You have Sensitive Skin, so you are using a Soothing and Protection mask.

As above apply mask to a clean skin at least twice per week leave on for 10/15 minutes. A sensitive can look dry and red at times leave your mask on overnight this should be done only when needed and not on a weekly basis.

Enjoy looking after your skin it's for life!!!

Facial Masks

Patsy on Wed 13 Feb


Facial Masks

Before applying a mask make sure your skin is clean start by cleansing and exfoliating once done pat the face dry then apply your mask  leave on for 10 to 15 minutes or follow direction on our product.

I had a very busy day at work on Saturday and once I finished at the salon I went to my great aunt for a little celebration she turned 96 yes 96 on Friday 8 February 2019.

She is amazing she still has all her wits about her and very funny with it. It was great to be with the family for an evening of just being together and enjoying ourselves. 

It's a little grey and drizzly here in Marylebone but not too cold which makes life a litter easier. There has been road works going on at Baker Street for months now, but the last few days has been a little frustrating  with most of Baker Street closed due to road resurfacing going on and I am sure will still be going on throughout next week.

Apart from that I am having a good day with great clients and a warm salon.

Winter Sun

Patsy on Thu 7 Feb


At this time of year quit a few people will leave off using sun protection. This is not a good thing we still get winter sun even in grey old London.

It's very windy outside today ,yet the sun is still trying to make an appearance which mean sun protection should be out of the cupboard and on your face , neck and decollete.

Anyone out and about during the day at least a produce with a SPF of 40 should be wore, someone that is more indoors an SPF of 20/30 should do the trick , if you prefer to go higher that's okay.

Sun protection is anti-ageing it protects your skin from the UVB (Ultraviolet B)and UVA ( Ultraviolet A) rays.

Cleanse Tone Moisturiser

Patsy on Wed 6 Feb


Cleanse Tone Moisturise

This is the 3 main steps to maintain a healthy skin, cleanse tone and moisturise should be done 2 times per day that's morning and evening.

Morning because we sweat and produce oils on our face at night and evenings because we are now caring the days environment on our face.

Cleansing removes excess oils , dead skin cells and impurities from the skin and helps to improve its health and radiance . 

The toner aids in removing any left behind dirt or oils from your cleansing treatment and restores the skins PH balance.

Moisturising the best way to hydrate your skin, whether your skin is Dry, Sensitive or Oily-Combination this stage of your home-care cannot be missed out.

At all times use the moisturiser that is best suited to your skin type for maximum benefits.


Don't Ask Them

Patsy on Tue 5 Feb


One of the Biggest Dream Killers is asking advice of people who've Never Done What you are trying to do.

Who've never taken big risks and who have never had the courage to step outside of their own comfort zone.

                                     No, Don't Ask Them.

Ask the people who have done it.

Ask the people Who Felt The Fear, Thought about all the reason it could Fail and went for It Anyway.

Could Have Had A Sunday Lay In Today

Patsy on Sun 3 Feb

I wanted a lay in today but I have 1 client booked for 10.30am. I wanted to cancel her yesterday but she has booked in so its only fair for me to take the time and be here. 

I am up and dressed  and off to the tube station is a beautiful sunny day I feel blessed, I get to the salon I switch on wax pots and machines. I set up for my 1 and only client and get changed into my uniform.

I sit down to check for emails the first one to pop up was sent at 10.14am by my 1 and only client to say she has been sick all night and will not be coming in for her appointment.

At this point I am not feeling so blessed ,she could have called at 08.00am this morning and leave a message to say she was unwell I would have got that message or send her email earlier but no.

I always think about my clients but some time it would be nice if the clients also thought about their therapist, she doesn't know that she is my only client for today but to cancel your appointment 16 minutes before you are due in is not good.

Have a blessed day

Getting my Post the wrong way round

Patsy on Fri 1 Feb

Yesterday I posted a blog all about body products but after publishing this I realised that what I wrote I should be putting up today. This is all a little backward but I am going to run with it anyway so here goes.

At this time of the year Face and Body exfoliating is king and after exfoliating to use the right moisturiser for face and body.

But I must stress a good Serum is a must have take for instance the Guinot Serum Long Vie The 56 active ingredients of the cellular life complex stimulate the vital functions for a more youthful looking skin. Contain rejuvenating active ingredients, restores skin elasticity.

Serum Nutri Cellulaire: Stimulates the production of nourishing elements essential for beautiful skin. Nourishes, softens and restores comfort to the skin.

You don't have to buy yourself a  serum from Guinot you just have to buy a serum that you like and use it daily under your moisturiser.

Tips For Winter Skin

Patsy on Wed 30 Jan

At this time of year my top tip is to exfoliate at least twice per week with a gel or grain exfoliator.

Products that can be used for exfoliating are: 

Guinot Gommage Biologic and Gommage Eclat Parfait 

Crystal Clear Face and Body Polish and there Oxygen Face Polish.

For a nourishing moisturiser try using:

Guinot Crème Nutrition Confort , Crème Anti-Rides or Crème Hydra Beaute 

Crystal Clear Intense Anti-Ageing Serum.

For those with a sensitive skin Guinot Crème Pur confort or Crème Protection Reparatrice.

On sunny days don't forget to apply a sun protection.

Keep looking after you and your skin
