Stepping away from our usual working week and adjusting to a slower and calmer surround means that we can invest in new rituals and routines that suit our home bases. For the 111SKIN team this means that we can try alternative routines that help our skin whilst spending more time indoors.

My morning routine has altered slightly as I am trying to apply lighter products whilst my skin is wearing less makeup. I will start by cleansing with my Vitamin C Brightening Cleanser and then apply my Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster and finish off with the Y Theorem Repair Light Serum, switching to more hydrating products has certainly helped my skin adjust to its new surroundings and when needed I will apply any hydrating masks but my current favourite is the Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask for its hydrating and soothing properties. When it comes to my evening routine, I will still apply my Celestial Black Diamond Multi Accelerated Peel twice a week which sloughs away my dead skin cells and for any breakouts, spot treat with the 3 Phase Anti Blemish Booster.

With my spending more time indoors, I am finding that I am reaching for my heavier products, the Celestial Black Diamond Retinol Oil at night and alternating that with my Celestial Black Diamond Multi Accelerated Peel. My skin now has the time to renew without battling with external environmental aggressors and so whilst exfoliating in the evening, I then focus on repair during the day. I love to apply the Y Theorem Serum to treat my skin after cleansing and the Space Defence Eye Lift Gel for my under eyes – both targeted to hydrate, brighten and protect.

As we settle into our temporary new-normal I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that a major silver-lining has to be the permanent make-up free zone that is my self-isolation setup. For a skincare junkie like me, this leaves limitless opportunities to try those products that sometimes haven’t made the daily line-up. For no fault of their own, of course! We’re all guilty of habitual use of those cult favourites in our regime. During my time at home thus far I’ve loved using the Meso Infusion Leave On Hydration Mask, the formula melts effortlessly into skin, to restore dry, dehydrated, pollutant-exposed skin that’s now enjoying a much-needed break from daily aggressors.

I’ve been applying our Rose Gold Illuminating Eye Mask straight from the fridge in the morning, delivering a blend of potent brightening ingredients to stimulate the skin’s own radiance. Whilst the frosty temperature straight from the fridge acts to wake-up my foggy peepers, it also de-puffs (with the help of my trusty jade roller). I’ve also relished double up on my retinol usage and indulging in some extra anti-aging during the day.

I truly believe that self-care has a way of lifting the soul, and spirit. During this period of unknown that will undoubtedly cause anxiety - I’ll be encouraging all forms self-care (aka positivity) into my routine. From skincare treats, feeding the soul with exercise and meditation, more more more please! As our lifestyles temporarily shift, we look forward to setting aside our hectic and taking the time to truly reset and recharge from the inside-out. We can use this time to nurture, re-set and recharge ahead of exciting challenges that lay ahead for the rest of 2020.

One positive around our new WFH situation is that I can completely rejuvenate my complexion and for the foreseeable, I will be wearing no makeup. There has been no better time than to mask, I will be taking the opportunity to up-the-masking-anti in my routine. Especially multi-masking with the new Rose Gold Radiance Eye Mask and all-time-favourite Y Theorem Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask. I constantly make sure my Master-Masking Edit is topped up and replenished as the weeks go on. I have no excuse to not ensure I am topping up my water consumption while I am working from home but will be reaching for hydration in my skincare while I am indoors too. While make-up free, I will add the Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Booster through-out the day as it is easy-to-use and provides instant moisturisation.

Plus, the Meso Infusion Lip Duo doesn’t leave my desk side. Often time poor, I rarely find the time to double cleanse…. however, I truly believe cleansing is the most paramount part of any skincare routine. I will be rigorous in taking more time to use two cleansers both morning and night. The NAC Y2 Restorative Cleansing Balm is my favourite, but my skin equally benefits from the AHAs the Exfolactic Cleanser offers.

Now that I’ve been working from home, I get to give my skin a little extra TLC. Every morning, before I sit down at my computer, I apply my favourite eye mask either - Sub-Zero De-Puffing Eye Masks or the Rose Gold Illuminating Eye Mask. Alternating between both eye masks keeps my tired eyes looking refreshed and my delicate eye area glowing. I like to leave these on for a bit longer than the recommended time frame so the product really penetrates into my skin.

I’m noticing my home central heating tends to dry out my skin, so I’ve added the Hyaluronic Aqua Acid Booster into my daily skincare arsenal. A few drops of this after cleansing my face, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and looking plumper. My makeup also goes on more smoothly and evenly now that I’ve started using this booster on my dehydrated skin. The NAC Y2 Restorative Cleansing Balm has been a true skin saviour helping to soothe my tight, reactive skin during this time. I cleanse my face with it twice a day and it leaves it feeling hydrated and supple.

As I’m not getting a lot of Vitamin D during this time of self-isolation, I’ve started taking Pure Elixir’s Smart Tan supplement in combo with the Reparative Beauty Dose to get my skin in tip top shape from the inside out.

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.
