    Sharing your stories: Part 2 - Vera

    We are looking to share your stories and your beautiful talents, which inspire us all in so many ways and reinforce the importance of what we do at SOVERAL.
    Part two in our inspirational stories is Vera Shadbolt - a professional make up artist and skincare specialist passionate about beauty, nutrition and wellbeing. Based in Cannes, Vera's work can be seen regularly at prestigious events including the Cannes Film Festival or the amfAR Galas.

    Her work is vibrant and eclectic and includes the use of many different textures with her signature touch focusing on luminous and naturally glowing skin.

    "I'm a firm believer that true beauty lies within ourselves - confidence and self love is the key. I believe makeup should empower women, make them believe in themselves and make them feel better. A beautiful painting needs a beautiful canvas, which is why it is important to use the best skincare products and as natural as possible."

    "I love the Forever Young Eye Cream - it keeps skin hydrated throughout the day and beautifully illuminates eye areas blurring fine lines and wrinkles. Perfect for the Red Carpet events!"

    We are trying something new at SOVERAL...

    Many of you will know our story and Alexandra's expertise, so we are looking to share your stories and your beautiful talents, which inspire us all in so many ways and reinforce the importance of what we do at SOVERAL.

    We begin with Anna Moller, a US-born photographer, currently living in Stockholm, Sweden. Anna works in both fine art and commercial realms. She loves to shoot analogue film because of its serendipitous nature and its way of communicating colour, texture and light.

    "I believe natural beauty lies in authenticity. People make choices of how they want to be seen in the world, in their look and attitude, and as long as these choices are grounded in feelings of care and self-worth, then I think there is beauty there.

    "Personally and aesthetically, I prefer simplicity. I feel silly in makeup and my clothes are usually pretty basic. I wear a lot of jeans. That is how I feel most comfortable. When someone is living from an honest and confident place, I think it really shows."

    "Angel Balm is my number one - It's so nourishing! The Floral Rain face mist is a close second. I also recently started using the Formula 1 moisturiser, which I layer on top, and I love that as well."

    PART 3

    With freshly clean skin that has been ‘fed’ with all the wonderful nutrients from the oil and serum in PART 2 , it’s important to keep all that goodness locked-in, and to ensure the skin is protected against loosing moisture.

    Why is keeping skin moisturised at all times so important?

    Prevent ageing
    When in a dry environment, the air around the skin is lacking in moisture, so it will suck the moisture out of the skin. To protect the body from losing water in this way, the outermost skin cells bind together to form a dry film that prevents more water from evaporating from the body. The more this happens in the natural expression’s folds, the more some skin cells stay permanently bonded together, forming a deeply set wrinkle. Simply, the more dehydrated the skin is, the quicker it will age.

    Best moisturiser: Formula 1

    Acne loves dry skin
    Having an outer film of dry skin cells seals bacteria in the skin pores. Bad bacteria feeds on oxidised sebum and dead skin cells, whilst the good bacteria that fight the bad guys feeds on oxygen. Therefore, allowing skin to breathe is the best possible thing we can do for it.

    Best moisturiser: Rescue Cream (not available online, please contact the clinic)

    Dry skin causes sensitive skin
    Dry skin is irritated more easily and is already on the defense, because dry skin cells are easily torn, causing inflammation. When the skin is well moisturised it becomes more malleable, protected and resistant to irritants.

    Best moisturiser: Moody Skin 

    Men’s skin
    Although men’s skin is slightly more resilient, the same advice applies in all of these instances.

    Best moisturiser: Formula X
