EXPAND YOUR SKINCARE HORIZONS

A busy schedule often means that less time can be spent on the finer things in life and that can be a full skincare routine once you come home in the evening. Where you would usually love to spend time double cleansing, your evenings don’t necessarily allow for this to happen and so what could be a 20 minute routine is usually diminished to 5 minutes. Currently, with more time on your hands your skincare routine will become a priority that you can afford to fit into your day. From 4 steps to 9, this edit will have your skin glistening whilst you are working from home.

CLEANSE TO DOUBLE CLEANSE

We all know and understand the power behind cleansing, the way in which the right cleanser will create a clear canvas for both your skincare and makeup to be built on top of it. Good skin starts with a clean base and now you have the time to spend, ensure your single cleanse turns into a double cleanse with purpose. Opting for a more gentle cleanser as your first step then applying the NAC Y2 Restorative Cleansing Balm will remove makeup and dirt effectively whilst soothing irritation and not upsetting the balance of the skin. As a second step, applying a cleanser that contains active ingredients will not only target the skin better by already having removed the dirt and build-up but will also actively clean the skin. Take the Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser as an example, a powerfully formulated and targeted cleanser that will correct dull and uneven complexions, with ingredients such as vitamin c, liquorice root extract and a microalgae complex, this cleanser is designed with ‘enhancing the complexion’ in mind. From refining the skin’s texture to tightening pores and brightening the skin, this cleanser works as the ideal second cleanse for your skin.

STEAM YOUR STRESSES AWAY

Most evenings don’t always call for time in which your pores can receive some TLC and currently steaming will become the best part of your routine. Aside from the self-care ritual that comes along with this step, steaming is a great way in which your pores can completely relax and allow for the next steps of your skincare routine to take place. Apply some water to the skin or the Antioxidant Energising Essence beforehand and steam away your worries for 15 to 20 minutes before moving onto the next step.

BANISH YOUR BLEMISHES

Whether you have blemishes you want eradicate or texture that you want to even out, exfoliating is key. It sloughs away dead skin cells and leaves skin feeling clean with renewed cells revealed on the surface. Opt for an enzymatic peel such as the Celestial Black Diamond Multi-Acid Accelerated Peel that is both a physical exfoliator and padded with AHAs that are known for delivering impactful results when it comes to exfoliating. Delivered through diamond particles, the rose-quartz crystal particles sits on the skin and buffs away the dead skin cells that your complexion no longer needs – for 10 minutes, you will reveal a brighter, smoother and more refined complexion.

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.
