Holy Grail of expert tips – Skin care

Holy Grail of expert tips – Skin care

“De-stress, have enough beauty sleep, and avoid or cut out alcohol – this will help you restore hormonal balance and regain clear skin.” – Judy Cheung, SkinB5 MD and Acne Expert

“Always ensure your hands are washed prior to cleansing your skin. Beyond being hygienic, this allows your facial cleanser to focus on the dirt and oil on your face, rather than those on your hands.” – James Vivian, Dermal Clinician and Founder of thecosmeceuticalcurator.com.

“Keep your eye creams in the refrigerator – the cooling effect can help to minimise puffiness in the morning and help keep you looking fresh, even if you have had a late night.” – Dr Adam Geyer, Kiehl’s Consulting Dermatologist

“Make sure that your skin is maintaining good free-water levels through using a high-quality Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) supplement – this will ensure you are always looking fresh and dewy, no matter what the day brings.” – Debbie Dickson, Director of Education at DMK

“Topical vitamin C helps interfere with hyperpigmentation. An additional benefit of vitamin C is the antioxidant effect it has, so it will help prevent skin from environmental damage while stimulating the production of collagen.” – Mary Hayward, National Training Manager at Coty Australia

“Hippocrates, the father of medicine, believed ‘all disease begins in the gut’ and inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and acne all have a gut link. Diet needs to be a key consideration when looking to improve skin health.” – Chiza Westcarr, Global Clinical Education and Development Manager at Advanced Skin Technology

“The single best thing you can do to combat dry winter skin is to switch to a nourishing oil-based cream which offers long-lasting hydration.” – Corinne Morley, Trilogy in-house beauty expert

“Bubbles belong in a bottle of champagne, not your cleanser. Use a gel- or milk-based cleanser to avoid stripping the skin of naturally occurring lipids. Try Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser or Triple Action Cleanser.” – Michelle Doherty, Owner/Director Alpha-H

“As you age, it is important to exfoliate daily with a gentle exfoliating face wash or cream. You should also add an exfoliating scrub three times a week and an exfoliating facial treatment once a month.” – Darlene Walchuk RN, BScN

“For a firming and brightening face mask mix 2 tbsp. of chickpea flour (gram flour or besan flour) with lemon. Apply on [the] face and leave to dry. Wash your face when [the] mask has dried and hardened. This mask really lifts and firms the skin and refreshes skin tone.” – bh member MoonlightSak

“If you’re experiencing breakouts or congestion, consider using a gentle, balancing face oil in place of your usual face cream for a few days. It will still nourish and maintain hydration levels (and the all-important lipid barrier), but won’t clog pores or load up the skin too much. Obviously I’m going to recommend Go-To Face Hero at this point.” – Zoe Foster-Blake, founder Go-To skin care

“I don’t believe in lip scrubs, I believe in using natural ingredients to gently encourage dead skin removal. I sleep with Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Treatment on the lips, [as] the citric acid encourages dead cell removal, [and] after showering in the morning I rub my damp lips gently with a face washer to remove dead skin that’s ‘ready’ to go. Don’t scrub with granules, your lips are fragile and you will end up doing more damage than good.” – Kirsten Carriol, Lanolips Founder

“Masks, masks and more masks. Get into the habit of using quick pick-me-up masks more than once a week to really get your skin glowing and keep it in peak condition. There are masks for every occasion, and a quick 10 minute mask applied while getting ready for the shower or before bed will do wonders to energise or soothe your skin. Have a selection of masks on hand to suit your skin’s every mood.” – Danielle Williams, Education Specialist ANZ, Jurlique

“If you suffer from breakouts, check your zinc levels and consider taking a supplement. It really helps speed up the healing process.” – Emma Hobson, Education Manager for the International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica

“Always hydrate [the] skin with moisturiser and drink a lot of water. In order to optimise the effect, first apply a serum, followed by a cream for complete hydration. Look for moisturisers that are mostly water-based – ideally thermal spring water and glycerine.” – Anne-Charlotte Jakubczak, Asia Pacific Training Manager for Avène
