Woman magazine today launches its first beauty awards - the Woman Hot 100 Beauty with Confidence Awards - to celebrate the best hair and beauty products the industry has to offer.

Phased across 2013, the Woman Hot 100 awards will feature hero beauty products in four key areas: skincare, bodycare, hair and make-up. There will be 25 winners in each award area and these winners will go on to form the Hot 100 at the end of the year. In addition to products, the awards will honour a favourite celebrity who best showcases each of the four sections.

Karen Livermore, editor, Woman says: “To celebrate the best of the best within the hair and beauty industry, we are proud to introduce the Woman Hot 100 Beauty with Confidence Awards. As well as finding the best products the industry has to offer, the awards will also pay tribute to how these recommended products give our readers inner confidence. Chosen by a panel of industry experts, led by our beauty editor Katie Corcoran, this is the ultimate edit of must-have beauty products in 2013.”

Sixteen judges - including co-founder of Wild About Beauty, Louise Redknapp and celebrity stylist Ben Cooke - will judge this year’s awards. Other judges include: Katie Corcoran, Woman beauty editor; celebrity facialist, Nichola Joss; podiatrist Margaret Dabbs and Debenhams beauty director Sara Stern. Readers will also be given the chance to get involved by nominating celebrities that best showcase their inner confidence in each section.

Louise Redknapp, co-founder of Wild About Beauty adds: “I am very excited to be a judge on the Woman Beauty Awards, I am addicted to beauty products especially finding new brands that I haven't tried before! I can't wait to get testing!"  

Woman will be celebrating skincare in the spring, bodycare during the summer, hair in autumn and make-up in winter. More information about the awards can be found at www.womanmagazine.co.uk .
