HELLO! Magazine and LANCÔME have joined forces to help real women find their skin confidence.

Nadine Baggott, HELLO! Beauty editor takes to the streets to find out what skin confidence means to real women.


Join HELLO! beauty editor Nadine Baggott as she helps two readers discover the simple two-step secret to truly great skin.

It’s everybody’s aim to feel comfortable in their skin, but the key to being confident is being happy with your skin. So it comes as no surprise to learn that recent research by Lancôme has shown that no matter what your age, skin type or skin concern, what women really want is to feel skin confident.

Nadine Baggott talks skin confidence with Louise Garwood, Lancôme Skincare Expert.

But where do you start? For me, feeling skin confident means that I can wear less make-up and still feel good about how my complexion looks, and I know that the secret lies in great skincare. But that doesn’t mean layering on lots of products. Just two simple steps are required – applying a serum, followed by a moisturiser. A serum applied to clean skin before your moisturiser makes it softer, smoother and more glowing, giving you a better base for your make-up. And to prove it, over the next three weeks I will be introducing two HELLO! readers, mother and daughter Evelynne and Danielle, to the secret of skin confidence by giving them the chance to trial a serum and moisturiser from skincare expert Lancôme and see what difference it makes.

Lancôme Skincare Expert Louise Garwood, who has run two of Lancôme’s busiest counters on London’s Oxford Street, explains, "When women come to see me, they all want the same thing – to feel good about their skin and confident in how their complexion looks."

So what are the things that can sap skin confidence? "For a younger woman it can be dryness, redness, sensitivity and a dullness; for an older women it is often a lack of radiance as well as a concern over fine lines. But what every woman really wants is to wake up with smoother skin and a healthy glow."

Sometimes, though, the array of different products can seem overwhelming and confusing. For Louise, Lancôme Advanced Génifique serum holds the key to younger, more radiant, softer skin. “It is a suitsall-skins serum that instantly smoothes skin and gives vitality to the complexion. It’s perfect for both Evelynne and Danielle and, teamed with the right moisturiser chosen specifically for their skin’s needs, it really is the quickest way to skin confidence.”
