Backstage skincare essentials at LFW

As you will know, the base to any beautiful makeup always starts with great skin care, I loved using these particular products at the weekend as they worked effortlessly in combination to prep the skin for the show makeup.  After the skin has been cleansed I always prep with a spritz of Rose Water which is cooling and refreshing on skin, followed by a rich nourishing moisturiser or all in one serum this combination always gives the skin an instant surge of dewiness, which is essential for catwalk shows.  The model’s skin can be very dehydrated as a result of travelling and working long hours alongside the frequency of cleansing their skin between shows.  I am always very selective in the skin care I use and particularly during show season as it is essential to ensure the model’s skin is been treated gently yet effectively with the best products I know will work.  Here are a selection of the key skincare products I used over LFW, that were perfect for show season.

Melvita Damask Rose Water to refresh and prepare the skin

IDC Regen Express for an intense skin prep if the skin was dehydrated

Zelens Z Matrix for a nourishing healthy moisturising sheen

Guinot lip balm to treat the lips

Gallinée hand cream to moisture the hands
