If you missed my Beauty Fix Facebook and Twitter chat last week, here is a selection of some of the questions that were asked…

221393(1)How to get rid of dark circles under the eyes

Q- What's the best concealer for dark circles under your eyes?

A- This is a common question! If you have oily skin and want a matte textured one, then use Amazing Cosmetics.

If you have an older skin and/or lines and therefore need more of a mobile texture, then use Laura Geller Real Deal x




223325(1)How to help the appearance of deep lines

Q- Hi Alison, i have really deep lines (11's) on the top of my nose & under my eyes. Can you tell me what is the best way to get rid of them. 

A-  You should use the Gatineau Melatogenine mask every single night and you should keep putting it on until it softens and plumps out the lines. With the 11's you should exfoliate every other day which will lessen the depth of that line.




229558(1)On roseaca

Q- Please could you advise products for roseaca thanks

A-  You need the Elemis Pro-Radiance Cleanser with the Anti Redness Cream underneath your normal moisturiser.

Also you can use the SBC Aloe Vera Gel as a mask or if it's extremely inflamed for an extra coolking treatment.

And for skin confidence, use the bareMinerals Redness Remedy underneath your normal make-up

    Could you suggest a good eye cream for dark circles.
    Also thought I should let you know how much I love Revitalash and Revitabrow. I am 57, and my lashes and brow had become very sparse. I have been using both the above products and wow!! my brows have grown back and so have my lashes. I only wear mascara for special occassions. Thanks again!!

    Dear Alison,
    Please can you advise me on a suitable eye cream? Im 46 and have good skin generally, not many wrinkles. I use the Decleor range of cleansers, toners and hydrafloral. I haved also been using the hydrotenseur for last 3 months and must say that it definitely worked on the hooding, but my lines do seem more pronounced. After 3 days of not using it my lines are even worse! Im not sure why this could be. I sometimes use moisturiser over the top and sometimes dont, but my lines definitely do seem worse for using this product. I have quite sensitive skin which is why i chose Decleor. All the other products are absolutely fantastic, but i need something for my eyes. please can you help me? thank you.
