Grazia · The number one skin rule, according to an expert
Celebrity skin specialist Melanie Grant shares her one beauty non-negotiable, irrelevant of season.
The creator of such gloriously clear complexions as Nicole Warne, Georgia Fowler, Rose Byrne, Jessica Gomes, Nicole Trunfio and Zoe Foster-Blake (to name a few) – she is a true artist when it comes to skin.
Both meticulous and rigorous when it comes to the big squeeze – she is a star on the celebrity beauty circuit. So what is the number one rule Melanie adheres to irrelevant of season? Cleansing, of course. “The age-old adage of cleansing our skin every evening will always reign supreme. Our skin does most of its healing and repairing while we sleep, so ensuring any grime, free radicals and pollution are adequately removed beforehand allows active ingredients to really take hold with the greatest possible chance of success.”
Not quite satisfied with a generic clean, she likes to add a little something something to bulk up the cleanse: facial massage. “I recommend a basic at-home approach that should only take a few minutes while cleansing. Simply focusing on upward sweeping motions using a light to medium pressure before removing your cleanser with tepid water. This will offer small but incremental benefits for the brightness, lift and radiance of your skin over time.”
