Christy Turlington Burns Unveiled As Imedeen’s New Global Ambassador
What’s not to love about catwalk queen Christy? Not only has she racked up some pretty impressive catwalk miles over the years, but is also a mother of two and runs Every Mother Counts, a fantastic campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. What’s more, Christy was unveiled this week as the new global ambassador for IMEDEEN beauty supplements. Way to go, Christy! Marie-Louise Haxthausen, Senior Global Marketing Director for IMEDEEN adds: “for us Christy is the true embodiment of what IMEDEEN represents. More than just a beautiful face, Christy is a woman who believes in doing more in all areas of her life. Christy is a true professional and it’s been an amazing experience to be working with someone that exudes beauty, inside and out.” We couldn’t agree more.
Dermalogica To Launch New PreCleanse Wipes
Now, we certainly didn’t expect to get all excited about the launch of some new face wipes, but when these beauties landed on our desk we totally fell in love. Trust the skincare experts at Dermalogica to come up with such an innovation- originally introduced in liquid form as the brand’s PreCleanse, the latest instalment comes in convenient, biodegradable wipes pre-soaked in the genius formula. Containing plant-based oils to melt away the layers of oil-based debris on the skin, these nifty wipes are the perfect addition to any gym bag. We love! Dermalogica's PreCleanse wipes will be £14.60 for 20, launching February 2014.

In fact, this Monday, Fitness First will be launching Red Monday- the official antidote to Blue Monday, and have teamed up with double Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton to help you beat the blues.
