Emma Hardie Amazing Face Age Support Range + Interview

emma hardie amazing face age support range When we were asked to go along and take a peek at some new offerings from skincare guru Emma Hardie, we didn't need to think twice about accepting the invitation. Emma Hardie is one of the UK's pioneering facial specialists, and if you read on to the end of this post, you'll find out she also gives the best advice when it comes to looking after your skin.

The first of the products from the Amazing Face Age Support Range is the Age Support Treatment Cream* a high performance everyday cream with a unique blend of ingredients including Avocado and Hyaluronic Acid Micro spheres. The ingredients list of this will make everything else in your bathroom look a little mundane. It has a rich, cooling texture that sinks into the skin instantly, leaving no residue. Emma herself suggests that if your looking for a really perfect 'airbrush' finish to your make-up then just apply this cream and grab one of the Micro Fibre Cloths to work over your skin to really buff the surface before applying your make-up. This is wonderful for giving your skin a plump, nourished feel and has everything you need to fight the signs of ageing.

The Age Support Radiance Mask* is something Sami covered in depth a couple of weeks ago, so I won't go into too much detail. Basically this, like the treatment cream, is full to the brim of skin loving ingredients that feel beautifully light and nourishing on the skin. The mask aims to restore the skins moisture levels, and should be used 2-3 times per week, it's also fabulous for your cuticles too- according to Emma!

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect eye cream, and although it's still early days, the Age Support Eye Cream* is proving to be a winner. Again packed with Emma's signature botanicals this ultra cooling and intensely hydrating cream aims to improve skin tone, elasticity and smoothness. The cream sits really well under concealer and keeps the eye area feeling nourished and awake all day.

After listening to Emma's passion and knowledge of these products it was pretty hard not to fall in love with them, so much so that as soon as we left, we popped over to SapceNK to pick up some of the Emma Hardie Microfiber Cloths. These make such a difference to your routine and really help to optimise the benefits from all of the products.

Of course, we couldn't go and spend an afternoon with a skincare genius and not ask some beauty questions. Emma very kindly allowed us to pick her brains on all things beauty and make-up;

 What is the right age to start actively looking after your skin?
"From childhood, even if it just means cleansing your face with nothing but water. My mother got me a Simple moisturiser when I was very young, with no fragrance or any special ingredients, just something to start conditioning my skin. I'd particularly say the teenage years are important, stick to gentle products, even just water and one of the Microfiber Cloths."

If we could only have one thing from the Emma Hardie range, what should it be?
"The Moringa Balm, as it's so multi functional and completely one of a kind."

You're in a rush to get ready, what are your essential steps?
"I'd cleanse my skin, then buff it with one of the Microfiber Cloths, then apply a serum and the Age Support Treament Cream. I tend to embrace a very minimal make-up look for during the day anyway so I would always invest my time into the skincare rather than applying lots of make-up, as good make-up can only be created with a good base."

What are you're favourite make-up brands?
"I love Kevin Aucoin, Laura Mercier and the Benefit They're Real Mascara."

What is the best advice piece of advice you have for achieving great skin?
"Breathing. Without breathing correctly the body becomes tense, nothing moves or works as it should and this then shows on your face. Without a proper breathing technique nothing can be relaxed or released within the body, none of the healthy foods or water you drink can be properly absorbed, which means although your products will help to make your skin look great, that will only be on the surface. Try to live as stress free as you can, and always remember to breathe. This will change your skin entirely."

It was an absolute pleasure meeting with Emma Hardie, and the Age Support range is a true reflection of her knowledge and passion towards skincare. All the products mentioned above are available from the Emma Hardie website and SpaceNK. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to work on my breathing technique...
