My favorite skin careSunday, May 9th, 2010 at 12:50 pm
As well as being a makeup product junkie I’m always on the hunt for the perfect skin care too. I’ve tried lots of different brands over the years and keep coming back to these products.
If I’m working on a tight in beauty shot I try to use Dermalogica daily microfoliant to polish my models skin before I start the makeup. As it’s water activated you do need to be somewhere with plenty of running water to cleanse after applying, not ideal for location shots. After gently massaging in to the skin and rinsing off I find the skin looks super smooth and any pores look refined. Makeup glides over the skin afterwards.
I discovered the German skin care brand Weleda a few seasons ago at fashion week when I was looking for a moisturizer that was hydrating but gentle. The entire range is based on natural plant extracts and I find the Rose moisturizer works well on all skin types. First of all it’s very soothing on the skin and the aroma is amazing, not perfumed but really fresh. It leaves the skin full of moisture but doesn’t look greasy. I also use Weleda Skin food on very dry skin as a mask or as a moisture highlight after makeup.
I found this little pot of lip balm whilst on holiday in Spain. I loved it firstly for the kitschy packaging but also found it worked really well on the lips and over the eye lids a sheer gloss. It’s essentially a non perfumed vaseline but isn’t as greasy and models seem to love it.
