CARING FOR THE SKIN BETWEEN EVENTS

Caring For The Skin Between Events

The holiday season is usually the time of year where we experiment with our beauty cabinet. Playing with glitters, a thicker foundation base or even a few extra coats of mascara, in this case our skin needs some extra TLC in between events.

Whilst the party season may not be in full swing this year, events may be replaced with zoom parties and after work cocktails may take place in your living room. Regardless for what you have planned, treat your skin to the care and attention it deserves.

DOUBLE CLEANSE & EXFOLIATE

There is nothing worse than not removing your makeup efficiently, the remains will stay within the pores and clog up your complexion leading to unwanted breakouts. To combat this, a double cleanse is often advised. Remove your makeup with a gentle cleanser such as the NAC Y2 Restorative Cleansing Balm, the soothing yet effective actives will break down the dirt and impurities without stripping or irritating the skin. Formulated with NAC Y2 to improve the skin’s environment and a beta-glucan derivative to retain the skin’s moisture, the complexion will be left soft, supple and make-up free.

To avoid dead skin building up on the surface and to help prep the skin for the next event, incorporate a hybrid cleanser such as the Exfolactic Cleanser to gently resurface and clarify the skin. Developed to deep clean and formulated with AHAs to treat any impurities and breakouts, your skin will be left brighter, smoother and clearer.

SOOTHE THE COMPLEXION

Whilst our products are designed to be effective without irritation, the skin still needs to feel looked after. Treat your skin to a Facial Treatment Mask – the expertly formulated masks house active ingredients to trigger and transform your complexion. Enhance your treatment by gently pressing the Antioxidant Energising Essence into the skin before applying the 20-minute mask treatment. The Aloe Vera calms the skin whilst the Copper Chlorophyll supports the skin’s processes and Giant Kelp to promote repair. Complete this treatment with a facial tool to penetrate the ingredients into the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue for a greater result.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
