Like with many of us, beauty routines change as we grow older but they also change with the places we live and your work environment. When I was younger a simple face wash and cream was all I needed, though I did pinch my mum’s expensive products like La Mer! When I moved to London and started going out more and sleeping less, hydration became the main focus and has remained that way now into my 20’s, but I still used a lot of products that weren’t right for my skin.

It was one appointment at Sarah Chapman clinic in London 4 years ago that completely overhauled my routine. You see I believed the more you use, the better as it preparers it for what’s to come. The fact of the matter is all your skin needs in your 20’s is moisture. So my therapist band all the anti-aging serums and potions and asked me to focus and bringing hydration back to my complexion. Less is really more, just think if you use all the products aimed at 40+ then they’re not going to work anymore when you are 40 as skin cells grow resistant.  So with that in mind I stripped back my routine, use products that are gentle yet effective and the only thing I really need to add is a strong SPF for Dubai.

My morning and evening routines don’t vary much.  First thing I do when I wake up is spray the rose mist from Diptyque as it instantly wakes me up. Then the Intense Hydra Booster sips right into my skin and I finish the routine with Age-Repair serum (acts as a moisturizer day and night) and a pea size amount of Heliocare SPF50. Evenings I cleanse my skin with Sarah Chapman Cleansing Balm or By Terry Micro Scrub (twice a week or once a week as a mask) and wipe away any excess with Dior Gentle Toning Lotion. The Sarah Chapman Eye Cream last for ages as well as the Overnight Facial Oil that I use underneath the moistriser. Finally you can’t neglect the neck as that where age really shows, so start using neck cream now and massage into the skin. Don’t forget your favourite fragrance, for me it’s Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.
