With clients like Victoria Beckham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Grant’s expertise is second to none. Here, she shares what went into the creation of, The Modern Guide to Skin Health.
Melanie Grant is a facialist and skin expert has spent years establishing herself as a global authority in all things complexion health. From local beginnings (including clinics in both Sydney and Melbourne), Grant now has outposts in Los Angeles and Paris, and a noteworthy client list including names like Victoria Beckham, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Cassandra Grey. Add global skin expert for Chanel and global skin advisor for Augustinus Bader, and it’s evident that Grant is incredibly well-versed in all things skin health.
While nothing measures up to an in-person appointment, Grant has excitingly released her very first book, The Modern Guide to Skin Health. Thorough but accessible, it details all there is to know about skincare, common concerns, Grant’s own philosophy and some stellar product recommendations. The book officially launched on Wednesday (you can secure your own below) so we spoke with Grant to understand the process, what’s inside, and what she hopes readers will take away.
A huge driving force for me has always been education. Giving my clients the knowledge and tools to understand their own unique skin, and empowering them to care for it in the right way at home has always been really important to me. Aside from the conversations I have with clients in the treatment room, over the years I’ve also tried to find ways to connect with people over social media. I started typing up some very basic “Notes On” various skin concerns and before I knew it, I had more than I could imagine. I wanted to find a way to present these in a way that could be easily referenced – and returned to – that would be helpful to people wanting to understand the many directions they might take to achieve optimal skin health.
