Discover the beauty hero that’ll meet major life changes head on…

‘Getting that gorgeous, healthy glow is what everyone really wants, isn’t it?’ Digital Content Director Charlotte Moore asked us one cold November afternoon, after we grab five minutes between meetings to chat about her new job title, and how Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate has revolutionised her skincare routine.

A woman with a successful and demanding career, Charlotte is now expanding her portfolio to include beauty and fashion digital brands Marie Claire and Look – a position that is both exciting and incredibly challenging.

‘Within a year I’ve gone from being the editor of a print magazine to managing the editorial across three different digital brands and, as you can imagine, it’s quite hectic,’ Charlotte revealed. ‘Usually you have someone telling you what to do in your job, but now suddenly I’m that person my team turn to – and that pressure can take its toll on your skin.’

‘I never have a problem with my skin during the summer months as I’m outside a lot, and exercising more. However, as I’ve gotten older I’ve realised that having smooth skin is essential for look healthy and glowing all year round. In a busy office environment, air con and central heating can dehydrate your complexion, plus long hours can make skin look tired and lacklustre.’

This is when Charlotte lets us in on her skincare secret…

‘I’m quite vigilant about using a powerful serum, and Ultimune is one of the best I’ve ever tried. It immediately gives your skin a lustrous sheen, so make-up goes on really easily without feeling greasy. My skin looks plump and healthy, my pores appear more refined and I found I wasn’t wearing as much make-up.’

Perfect for alleviating an exhausted complexion Shiseido’s Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate both nourishes and boosts skin’s natural defences, leaving skin feeling smooth, supple and rejuvenated. The exclusively developed Ultimune ComplexTM contains powerful plant extracts including Ginko, Bilboa, Perilla and Wild Thyme help to anti-oxidise your skin and protect against impurities. It’s a miracle stress-relief serum perfect for popping in your handbag.

‘It feels so luxurious and my skin really thanks me for it,’ Charlotte told us. ‘Especially now I’m living life in the fast lane.’

‘Since using Ultimune people have started stopping me in the office and saying ‘you look really good,’’ she laughs, ‘which I think is proof enough that this serum really is amazing.’
