STAR CABINET B
Olay ambassador Jesinta Franklin shares her beauty tips for seasonal skincare, scents and spring racing
etween the make-up I wear for work and all the flying I do, I have to take extra good care of my skin. I get a Hydrafacial once every couple of months, and I eat foods like macadamia nuts, salmon and avocado to help me glow from the inside out. I drink lots of water, exercise regularly, and I love infrared saunas, too; I feel like my skin always glows after one. My skincare regimen is very strict and I stick to it no matter what, even when I’m flying or travelling. In winter I lather on a night cream, but I find in summer I don’t need to use as much. All the Olay day moisturisers I use have SPF in them, so I always put those on before I leave the house, and I wear a hat and sunglasses when I am outdoors. On my days off, I like to keep things natural and fresh. I’ve been able to master that dewy, no-make-up make-up look – but I can’t apply fake eyelashes to save myself and am yet to conquer the art of applying eyeliner. For spring racing, I like to have fun with a bold-coloured lip [Franklin will be attending Stakes Day on Saturday as the Moët & Chandon ambassador]. Depending on the outfit, I might go for a nice red, pink or orange lipstick from Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury or Dior. I had really bushy brows as a kid. After years of being teased and asking Mum and Dad, they finally let me get them waxed when I was around 13 or 14. I wish they didn’t – it’s my biggest beauty regret. Now I spend all my time filling them in with Hourglass and M.A.C eyebrow pencils and Glossier Boy Brow gel, and wishing I had a fuller brow. I wear Dior’s Miss Dior fragrance and mix it up with different essential oils. Buddy [Franklin, her husband] wears Dior Sauvage, which I love on him; it’s really masculine and strong. My go-to mani/pedi colours are nudes because I have to keep things natural for work. When I get time off I mix it up between grey, white, red or black. I find those colours go with most things. I feel naked without a mani/pedi. My hair is subject to so much blowdrying and tonging on set, so I like to let it dry naturally when I can. I use Mr. Smith Serum and Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam at home, and I visit the salon a fair bit for treatments. I get my fringe trimmed regularly as it grows so fast.
