Perfect skin – no surgery required!


Meeting a girlfriend I’ve known for decades this week , I noticed how less make up has most definitely become more.

Hen and I met back when she was a Camberwell art student, crimson of lip, noir catflick of eye, she sported a Siouxsie & the Banshees mohican. Cool. We shared a basement flat in one of Kensington’s finer streets but it had no central heating, the ice would gather on the inside of our windows and the bathroom dash in the midst of winter was excruciating! She’s now an interior designer who gets flown around the world to create uber-wealthy people’s homes. How times have changed!

Picking up where we left off we discussed the important topics of the day – husbands, politics, bathroom taps, skin, Botox, mirrors, eye sight, Fillers, work, money, love. And I was transfixed by her poreless skin – dewy, almost candle-lit. What was her secret?

As well as a cruel mirror designed to highlight her every flaw and allow her to create polished perfection before she left her house and any and all products by Sarah Chapman,  here are some skin secrets designed to make every woman look her best.
