The top beauty expert …
Lesley Reynolds is not a woman who could be labelled boring. From her renowned skin clinic on London’s iconic Harley Street to her weekly anti-ageing columns, acclaimed beauty blog and love of all things glamorous, Lesley truly knows the importance of looking and feeling good.
A skincare and beauty expert who’s been working in the industry for over 20 years. Lesley first found her love of beauty from her mother, whom she would watch mixing lotions and potions in the kitchen. Helping to create some lovely, fragrant products - she enjoyed playing with the different ingredients to devise new creams and face masks. Lesley's experimentation with ingredients has continued throughout her life as she has delved further into the wonders behind beauty and skincare.
This fascination with beauty led to training in Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Reiki and Indian Head Massage, opening a holistic clinic in Essex in the 1990’s, specialising in acne treatment and anti-ageing processes.
As a lover of advanced technology, Lesley has often trained and worked in the US, later becoming one of the first to introduce cosmeceutical products to the UK market. She became managing director for Jan Marini from 2001 and later was the distributor of dermatological brands DCL and DDF.
With all this experience behind her, Lesley opened The Harley Street Skin Clinic with husband Dr Aamer Khan (MD) in 2004.
Lesley has written two best-selling books on anti-ageing including Look Younger For Longer and Easy Ways To Drop A Decade.
The inspiration for writing the books came from Lesley’s experience with various clients who all wanted to look as young as they felt.
Lesley put pen to paper and recorded her findings and thoughts to help women all over the world discover the secret to holding back the years.
