The Joan Collins Fan Club
- 25 July 2014
Excuse me," a pretty, probably twenty-something, girl said as we both queued for our morning coffee. "Can I just ask what foundation you use? Your skin looks great."No foundation, I smugly beam, just bronzer, mascara and - apparently - the secret of eternal youth. PRs, friends, strangers, colleagues; no fewer than eight people have asked me in the past fortnight what has transformed my skin and I tell them, as they look at me bemused: it's Joan. Applied before bed, the Contra Time Sleep Active Night Cream (which includes nourishing avocado butter, fruit and seed oils and beauty powerhouse hyaluronic acid), lays on your skin like the kind of Fifties cold cream you might imagine Collins would have slathered on, pre her Dynasty days, when skincare was simple and people just drank water and ran around to achieve glowing skin and rosy cheeks.
Granted, she had a headstart on the rest of us - more beautiful in her forties than her co-stars in their twenties - but she really has taking ageing gracefully to a new extreme. Joan is ageless. Whatever she's been smearing on her face over the years is surely worth a try.....
