She helps half of Hol­ly­wood put their best com­plex­ions for­ward on the red car­pet, but this aes­theti­cian’s favourite mask can be found in a su­per­mar­ket

IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START PRO­TECT­ING YOUR SKIN

I rec­om­mend AGAINST AGE­ING. in­cor­po­rat­ing retinol into your rou­tine in your early twen­ties, but even as kids, sun­screen is our ear­li­est form of pro­tec­tion. Sun dam­age is ex­tremely hard to re­verse later in life, so I never leave the house with­out ap­ply­ing SPF. I love Con­trol Cor­rec­tive’s Oil Free Sun­screen SPF 30.

RETINOL IS AMAZ­ING

It FOR ANTI-AGE­ING. helps to re­duce fine lines, boost col­la­gen, al­le­vi­ate pig­men­ta­tion and im­prove skin tex­ture. I cre­ated my Retinol Re­form serum as a gen­tle yet ef­fec­tive al­ter­na­tive to other op­tions on the mar­ket that were too harsh on my clients’ skin. But you need to build up your retinol use grad­u­ally. It can be dry­ing so start by us­ing it one night a week, then add a night each week as your skin can tol­er­ate it. YOU HAVE TO AD­JUST YOUR SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE AS YOU AGE. As you get older, your hor­mones change, so the prod­ucts you used in your twen­ties may no longer be suit­able in your thir­ties. The most com­mon mis­take I see peo­ple make is us­ing the wrong prod­ucts for their skin type, which can clog pores and cause con­ges­tion. I rec­om­mend con­sult­ing with an aes­theti­cian or der­ma­tol­o­gist to cre­ate a skin­care rou­tine that’s per­fectly suited to you.

AIR PURIFIERS OF­FER GREAT

They SKIN­CARE BEN­E­FITS. cap­ture par­ti­cles in the air – like dust and bac­te­ria – be­fore they make con­tact with your skin to help al­le­vi­ate ir­ri­ta­tion and dry­ness, re­duce acne, slow down the age­ing process and im­prove skin tone. I have a Dyson Pure Hot+cool Link in my house. I’m ob­sessed!

IT’S IM­POR­TANT TO LET A PROD­UCT AB­SORB INTO YOUR SKIN BE­FORE LAY­ER­ING ON

This al­lows each THE NEXT ONE. in­gre­di­ent to pen­e­trate and be as ef­fec­tive as pos­si­ble.

I SWEAR BY LIGHT, AT-HOME

Dr CHEM­I­CAL EXFOLIANTS. Den­nis Gross peel pads are my go-to – they help to re­move dead cells from the sur­face of your skin and give you an amaz­ing glow.

FOR A DIY FA­CIAL, START BY CLEANS­ING YOUR SKIN WITH A GEN­TLE YET HARD­WORK­ING

Next, ap­ply an CLEANSER. at-home chem­i­cal ex­fo­liant so in­gre­di­ents are bet­ter ab­sorbed. Fin­ish with a hy­drat­ing mask. Garnier makes amaz­ing sheet masks. I also love Garnier Mi­cel­lar Cleans­ing Wipes for re­mov­ing makeup. They’re made with silk fi­bres, so they’re su­per soft.

I IN­COR­PO­RATE LED THER­APY

It fights INTO EVERY FA­CIAL. wrin­kles, kills bac­te­ria that causes acne and ac­cel­er­ates heal­ing after ex­trac­tions. My favourite at-home op­tions are the Déesse mask and Light­stim hand­held de­vice.
