What Missoma’s Founder Marisa Hordern Did Next

  What Missoma’s Founder Marisa Hordern Did Next The demi-fine jewellery brand's founder on sustainability, originality and longevity.Marisa Hordern is describing the year in which she launched the now-cult brand Missoma. For those of you who pinpoint that time as somewhere in the early 2010s, try 2007. And that horn necklace almost everyone was wearing in 2015? It's actually been around since 2008.

I used to think it was just my bathroom cabinet that was out of control. Recently though, a friend, despairing about her ever-expanding beauty routine, showed me her bathroom shelves and she has almost as much stock as Space NK.

SNL's Kate McKinnon Explains Why She Left The NBC Show After 'The Best Decade'

  SNL's Kate McKinnon Explains Why She Left The NBC Show After 'The Best Decade' Kate McKinnon is opening up about why she left Saturday Night Live while still calling it "the best decade."Kate McKinnon appeared on Live! With Kelly & Ryan, where she discussed her general reasoning behind leaving the long-running variety sketch series. While McKinnon dubbed her wildly successful stint on SNL as “the best decade,” she said it was time for her to move on.

I could ask her where she stands on the ‘clean versus science’ argument and whether the two are mutually exclusive. ‘It’s actually quite straightforward,’ Dr McCarthy says encouragingly. There are three main scientifically proven ingredients that keep skin youthful: vitamin A (or retinol as it’s commonly known), SPF and antioxidants, of which vitamin C is the best.

She doesn’t use toners, praises inexpensive moisturisers (save your money for products with active ingredients), explodes the idea we should stick to one brand for everything (‘no brand excels at every product’), and recommends creamy cleansers as we age. ‘Most cleansers work, so the key is choosing the right formulation for your skin type.’

Cream-based cleansers are better for sensitive or rosacea-prone skin – try Avène Extremely Gentle Cleanser, or CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser – while foamers are better for oily skins. She considers many eye-creams a waste of time as most don’t contain ingredients that make a long-term difference to skin quality, although she rates Medik8 r-Retinoate Eye Serum.

Robbie Williams 'breaks into beauty market with new skincare range'

It means having an irrational sense of optimism, which is very Robbie.

‘It has a high-strength, novel form of retinol, which is formulated in a way that won’t dry skin but achieves results.’ Although she suggests using it twice a week initially, rather than the daily application recommended on the product.

Dr McCarthy treated melanomas for years and believes that using a daily SPF, separate from your moisturiser, is the single best thing you can do for your skin. ‘If you hate the idea of chemicals penetrating your skin, opt for a mineral one, which provides a physical barrier. It must contain UVA and UVB. If you’re worried about blue light, the combination of SPF with vitamin C will ensure you’re fully protected.’

She recommends Heliocare Oil-Free Gel, which leaves skin hydrated and dewy. She loves vitamin C because as well as brightening skin, it stimulates collagen production. But don’t use it more than once a day. Skinbetter Science Alto Defence Serum, which contains vitamins C, E and 19 and other antioxidants, is the one – it’s a cream rather than a serum, and particularly popular for mature skin. It is expensive, but she says it’s worth it. As for hyaluronic acid, her choice is Vichy Minéral 89, which can replace thicker moisturisers when the warmer weather makes a comeback. ‘It’s lightweight yet intensely hydrating.’

  Did Jordan Peele Dream Up A Huge Nope Sequence Almost A Decade Before The Film's Release? Apparently, Jordan Peele had a dream about a sequence that was in Nope almost a decade before the film came out.Jordan Peele is a visionary director whose films helped bring out our fear in hypnotism, doppelgängers and now flying saucers. While flying saucers can freak anyone out, this Oscar-winning director can also make audiences afraid of chimps. Jordan Peele had a bit of a premonition of his latest release film, as it seems he dreamed up this terrifying sequence almost a decade before Nope came out.
