The first SkinCeuticals® product I ever tried was Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 moisturiser. It was so nourishing, I loved that it didn’t leave behind a heavy residue, which is a very difficult balance to find in richer formulas. I tend to struggle with the physical effects of stress rather than mental so with the opening of Eighth & Eden my skin had become particularly compromised leaving it very dry. Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 formula of essential lipids worked like magic. Dryness, tightness, and irritation — started to subside overnight. My team and clients had started commenting on my skin — the noticeable improvement in brightness, clarity, and elasticity had elicited compliments. Needless to say, I’ve been using and working with the SkinCeuticals® range ever since.

There’s enough vitamin C skin care on the market to fill a large citrus farm (or ten), but what’s different about SkinCeuticals® C E FERULIC is that it offers the ingredient’s highest concentration (15%) and safest consistency possible. Plus, it’s incredibly stable, while also having a higher rate of penetration because it is lipid soluble—just like human skin. But a product this powerful demands an engaged user. “One of the most important aspects comes in the way you use this product,” notes Dr. Eloise “By giving the serum time to actually soak into your skin, without immediately layering other products on top, you allow it to really soak in all the necessary nutrients.” The results are immediate. “It makes your skin glow and look so radiant the first time you use it,” says Dr Eloise . “Collagen is boosted in around a week, while reduction of acne scars and skin discolouration take about three weeks.” “C E FERULIC is good for everyone,” says Dr Eloise. “I love vitamin C because of its ability to increase collagen levels, reduce melanin production, brighten skin, and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage.”

I’ve been using the Obagi® Professional C™ Mask once or twice a week in the evenings before my serums to resurface and brighten my skin. After discovering this key product during the first lockdown when none of us could step foot in the clinic! The beauty of this at-home microdermabrasion treatment are the results -smoother, softer, more radiant skin. The granular scrub provides incredible exfoliation, washing away dead skin cells while also delivering a powerful dose of 30% vitamin C. “A small amount goes a long way with this gentle scrub. It is well formulated and includes both physical and chemical exfoliants.” The huge dose of vitamin C, is just as much about what it gives back to skin as what it takes away, which is dullness and dead skin. Apply it with finger tips and use a circular motion rather than dragging or wiping it along your skin…You’ll also find that you get better absorption of any actives you apply on top.

My go to cream for brightness under my eyes, I use Obagi® ELASTIderm® night and day, preferring the cream option. I use it morning and night as an essential part of my skincare regime and am a firm believer in medical grade skincare to support my in house treatments. I chose ELASTIderm® because it is clinically proven to reduces lines and wrinkles. A fast-absorbing cream, the delicate skin under my eye area is moisturised and left looking brighter, and smoother. Within 21 days of morning and evening use, my dark circles fade and wrinkles were minimised. The blend of vitamins, and minerals—supports cell renewal, reduces inflammation, adds moisture, and minimises redness.

As for the skin on my body, I’m trying to pay special care because I’ve been indoors and more sedentary this year. I love dry-brushing in the morning to flush stagnant lymph, followed by using Amanda Harrington® Glycolic body scrub in the shower to soften and polish my skin. It’s especially genius for hands, knees, ankles and elbows pre-tan to ensure streak free results.

I completely changed my skincare regime since starting Eighth & Eden. I’d been suffering from maskne especially on my chin area during the pandemic and had tried everything. Dr Chloë prescribed The Acne Eraser Method plus at home skincare to support results. I now use Obagi® CLENZIderm nights only to keep my skin clear, containing actives Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic acid which unclog my pores, exfoliate and kill off any bacteria. So far I haven’t had to repeat my in house treatments thanks to this powerful cleanser.

SkinCeuticals® Hydrating b5 to boost my face glow, my favourite trick is to add a few drops of Hydrating B5 before going out. I warm the mixture up in my hands, and then press it into my face. A lot of people are intimidated by facial serums and get worried about blemishes, oiliness, and congestion, but this one is designed for all skin types and is great for those concerned with sensitivity, dullness, and laxity. The b5 element keeps skin feeling conditioned, supple, and comforted. I use it in the mornings instead of a moisturiser to keep my skin, supple and hydrated during the day.

I’m serious about my sunscreen. Why, you ask? Well, even though I live in the UK my skin is subject to broad spectrum UVA rays that are responsible for ageing, pigmentation, skin cancer so regardless of whether you live in a city that’s always sunny or a town that never sees the sun, SPF should never be a question of “Do I need to use this today?” Luckily, I found the answer to my sunscreen woes. SkinCeuticals® Advanced Brightening UV defense SPF 50, the ultimate in sun protection. This game-changing SPF 50 can be used instead of your moisturiser or added to foundation for a seamless texture with no white cast. It not only protects the skin, but also prevents further pigmentation and reduces existing. It eliminates the need to layer product and melts into your day cream or right onto bare skin. Nothing could be easier.

Being a young Mom with two very young children I needed something to keep me glowing for my clients @themani. I started using GLOW by The Beauty Chef® as part of my daily routine and within a month saw a visible difference. GlOW supports glowing skin, gut health and overall wellbeing. The nutrient dense powder contains natural sources, Vitamins A, C and B contributing to healthy immune system function, collagen formation and maintenance of healthy hair and skin. The main difference for me is a reduction in fatigue which I can only put down to Niacinamide helping with macronutrient metabolism and energy production. I sprinkle the powder on my greek yoghurt for breakfast every day, bonus is the lovely berry taste.
