SKIN CARE! One of the top 5 questions I get asked on a daily basis. What do you use on your skin!?
Now into my 30s I can put my hand on my heart & say I have better skin now than in my 20s… years in the model industry will teach you:
1. Beauty isn’t makeup, and 2. to have glowing skin day after day – you INVEST in your skin
The above combined with sleep & plenty of water, of course 😉 My teen ‘aspiring model’ students often ask “what’s your secret” (it is quite flattering when they think I’m 25, winning!! 🤭🤣) and I can always answer: I’ve been a long-time lover of Cactus Skincare (check out their drool worthy Instagram here). By long-time lover, I mean going on a loyal fan of five years now. They’re organic, use raw Australian ingredients and are affordable – making it easy to cull any/all skin care products you use loaded with nasty chemicals.
My daily skin care routine:
+ Morning: Lemon Myrtle Cleanser and Light Balancing Cream (I still have oily skin though my best fit from the Cactus Skincare range is Normal/Combination).
+ Before I leave the house: UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreen. I’m currently using the Nivea Sun SPF50+ Sunscreen Ultra Sports Spray (easy to apply on my skin as a spray vs a tube, and less oily. I buy this from Woolworths).
+ If working (model shoot or design client meeting): apply makeup. I’m currently using the Nude by Nature
+ Night: Lemon Myrtle Cleanser and Moisture Boost Serum (before bed)
+ Once a week I use the White Clay Mask (leave on for 15-20min). This makes me feel like I’m at a day spa – at home, and minus the cost)!
My minimalist model hack:
+ Have a go-to skin care routine, that when all else fails (and you’re over using all the free samples from goodie bags or gift sets from family/friends, you can always rely on to give you the feeling / results that you love. Skin care only becomes expensive if you purchase something that doesn’t agree with your skin. Use testers at the shop or order a sample pack.
+ Price is only ever an issue when there is a lack of value. Invest in your skin – it’s the largest organ you have, and going to represent you for a long time!! If it works for you, it’s worth every penny 🌿😘You can always save on skincare when you buy in bundles.
