US Magazine · Chanel Skincare Expert Melanie Grant Walks Us Through Her At-Home Facial Routine — Watch!
With studios in Sydney, Melbourne and Los Angeles, Grant crafts incredible facials and at-home routines for her clientele, including the likes of Hailey Beiber, Nicole Trunfio and Pheobe Tonkin.
But Grant also has amazing skin herself. After all, if you're the best glass skin-giver in business, your own canvas is guaranteed to be in top condition.
BAZAAR recently caught up with Grant to learn more about her at-home routine and how she takes care of her own skin—when not looking after others.
The sought-after Sydney-based facialist, who is Chanel’s skincare expert, shared a series of exclusive videos with Us Weekly’s Stylish to show readers like you how to do a facial at home. The expert’s also just one of the beauty pros to share cleansing hacks and tips in the new issue of Us Weekly.
The pro filmed her facial from her aesthetically pleasing bathroom wearing a white bathrobe and a matching headband. She begins by introducing herself and stating that a DIY facial doesn’t require “100 different products” and doesn’t have to be “overly complicated.”
Grant encourages beauty lovers to look to their pantry for skin-loving ingredients. Instead of purchasing certain products, it’s possible to create a homemade version of some popular facial essentials. For example, the skincare expert suggests using honey for a nourishing face mask or coffee grounds mixed with jojoba oil for an exfoliant. Keep that in mind if you decide to recreate her routine, outlined below!
First, Grant starts by massaging Cosmedix Purity Clean Exfoliating Cleanser onto her skin in circular motions. “I like this because it has 5 percent lactic acid and peppermint oil,” she says, before removing the cleanser with a warm, damp cloth. These ingredients work together to exfoliate dead skin cells while calming the skin.
Grant applies just a thin layer before letting it fully dry. After giving it somewhere between five to ten minutes, she washes away the formula away with a damp cloth.
Next, it’s time for the most relaxing part of all: the massage. While the experience is likely a little extra luxurious when someone else’s doing the work, you can still make your skin look more sculpted by doing it on your own.
