Skincare Tips & Advice
Her Skin – with Gabrielle Singh
“Her skin journey is personal, it’s made up of highs and lows, ebs and flows. From frustrated and dull to glowing perfection, her skin is her most treasured possession. No one gets it quite like she does, her skin’s moods and moments, what it needs and what it demands. It’s a delicate dance of brooding blemishes and a divine complexion, it’s her skin”
WHEN DID YOUR LOVE OF HEALTHY SKIN BEGIN?
My love for healthy skin began when I was in high school because of the struggle I went through with my skin. So I would say my love for skin has been for the past 10 years.
HOW HAS YOUR SKIN JOURNEY BEEN SINCE THEN?
I definitely continue to grow with skin, I began my skin journey for myself but now it goes far beyond that, my skin journey is not just about me it now includes all of my beautiful clients.
HAVE YOU EVER STRUGGLED WITH YOUR SKIN?
Yes absolutely, my struggle with my skin is what influenced me to get into the beauty industry. I struggled for many years with my skin and not just on my face but also on my body.
BIGGEST BELIEFS WITH SKINCARE?
My biggest belief with skincare is the ingredients, I am 100% a believer that active ingredients is what gives you the results you are always searching for.
WHAT’S A TYPICAL SKIN ROUTINE LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?
A skincare routine doesn’t need to be complicated, while having a shower you cleanse your skin, you are already washing your body so why is cleansing your face such an effort. Now for people who don’t do anything to their skin I always suggest keeping it simple cleansing the skin and then moisturising, that is 2 steps.
However for myself and for anyone who is serious about their skin and getting the results they want this is when more steps are added in. My routine consists of cleansing, exfoliating, corrective serum, eye cream and moisturiser. This may seem like a lot of effort to some people but in fact my whole routine takes me no longer then 2 minutes. What is 2 minutes out of your life to improve the one area that boosts every ones self esteem. There is no denying when our skin is looking great we feel more confident.
ANY SKIN MYTHS WE SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
A skin myth I see a lot is that you don’t need an eye cream. I have seen and heard so many professionals and also individuals question whether you really need an eye cream and that you can use your normal face moisturiser instead.
Your pores under your eyes are not the same as the pores on the rest of your face so therefore a facial moisturiser molecules are too large for the eye area to absorb the product therefor the product will just sit on the surface of your skin and not improve the concerns such as dark circles or dehydration.
WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST AGERS FOR SKIN?
There are so many things that influence faster ageing, a massive one is the sun, that is something I’m sure almost everyone is aware of, but lack of sleep is also another big factor to ageing along with stress, smoking and leaving make up on while sleeping. The list could go on and on!
FAVOURITE PRODUCTS IN THE COSMOLOGY RANGE?
My absolute favourite products are the Resurfacing Gel Cleanser, Active A Serum, Restorative Oil and the Rejuvenating Eye Cream. These are the products you will find me using on a daily basis without a doubt.
