Long before Suki Waterhouse started dating Bradley Cooper, her father, Dr. Norman Waterhouse (along with a dermatological biochemist and two plastic surgeons), created a gel in 2008 designed to help with “unhappy skin”—in particular, the kind that had recently gone under the knife. Now, with the release of HealGel Face and HealGel Eye, the doctor has added to his arsenal. HealGel Intensive—the original product—achieved a cult status in the U.K., mostly for the research, science, and might behind it. Waterhouse is a former president of both the Royal Society of Medicine and the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, and he’s also considered one of the “holy trinity” of London plastic surgeons. (The other two, if you were wondering, are Drs. Douglas Harrison and Barry Jones.)
In addition to ingredients like arnica liposome (a stimulant that helps with swelling and discoloration) and madecassoside (a soothing plant extract), the classic formula has been given a boost via a blend of omega oils that are hardworking on the moisture and elasticity fronts, along with a plumping hyaluronic acid complex—all found in HealGel Face. Light diffusers in HealGel Eye minimize the appearance of dark circles, while hyaluronic acid (used yet again) provides a tightening effect. In London, HealGel is beloved for both its impeccable pedigree and effectiveness. And it’s pretty handy for treating a mosquito bite and sunburn, too. The brand is also known to sell out quickly—meaning put your order in across the pond fast.
HealGel Eye, £32 (approximately $52), HealGel Face, £48 (approximately $78); www.healgel.co.uk.
In the new issue of Allure, Amy Adams gets real about her outlook on beauty. “Perfect isn’t normal, nor is it interesting,” she says. “Some of these actresses or public personas who are very public about their disciplined diets, more power to them. I just don’t see the point.” Adams, the latest actress to assume the role of Lois Lane in the new Superman movie, Man of Steel, also gets candid about her reliance on makeup. “I have no features without makeup,” she admits. “I am pale. I have blonde lashes. You could just paint my face—it’s like a blank canvas. It can be great for what I do.” [Us]
To celebrate the launch of its new 777-300ER on the Los Angeles-to-London route, American Airlines has teamed up with the British brand Nails Inc. on a limited-edition lacquer.
