Work that face!
Forget facelifts. Or Botox. Emma Hardie is one of the most sought-after facialists in the business, and unlike women who insist that ‘freezing’ the face is the way to stay youthful, Emma believes just the opposite: for radiance and a younger-looking face, ‘facial mobilisation’ is the answer. Her ‘non-invasive natural lift and sculpting’ facials (at The Hale Clinic and in Oxford) are truly world-class (and she’s about to train the team at Space NK). But Emma’s now soon launching her own signature skincare line (you’ll also find it at Space NK as well as www.emmahardie.com). Over breakfast at Kettner’s in Soho we asked Emma: if a woman had just two minutes to wake up her face and turn back the clock, what’s her hottest tip? Emma yawned. Literally. ‘The key is to move the mouth around, starting with a small ‘O’ and opening really wide,’ she elaborated. ‘It removes facial tension and gets blood and oxygen flowing, so you look more glowing.’
