Professional makeup artists and beauty experts may have a lot to say about how you should care for your skin, but how do they care for their own? The man behind the inspiring, swoon worthy beauty looks of celebrities and super models alike, Sir John creates his masterpiece makeup applications after encouraging and creating beautiful blank canvases. Of course, his own skin care routine would stand up to a healthy skin standard. Here a look at his skin expert tips and tricks.
Beauty Expert: Sir John, celebrity makeup artist and Brand Ambassador for L’OREAL Paris.
Skin Type: Extremely combination with a very oily T-zone and dry cheeks.
Skin Care Tips to Live By:
#1. A favorite skin trend: Multi-masking. Because of his combination skin, Sir John has to do a balancing act when it comes to taking care of his skin. Multi-masking is when you apply different masks that have various uses to different areas of your face. If you have an oily T-zone like Sir John, apply a clay mask to the area. If you have dryness, look for a hydrating mask to apply to your cheeks and under-eye area.
#2. A favorite skin product: “I love glycolic toner and use it typically three times a week,” says Sir John. A natural exfoliator, glycolic acid found in some toners can help deliver much-needed hydration to dry or mature skin.
#3: Current skin care focus: Hydration. “I don’t break out as much as I used to, so I don’t use salicylic acid as much now that I’m getting older, “but now I’m focusing on hydrating so I look for products formulated with hyaluronic acid and rose oil.”
#4: Regular skin care treatment: Laser hair removal. To look smooth and sleek on any given day, Sir John keeps up with laser hair removal treatments.
#5: His skin loving- go-to beverage: Carrot juice. “I drink a lot of carrot juice,” says Sir John. Carrots and other orange-y fruits and vegetables are rich in beta-carotene, a nutrient that is great for maintaining healthy-looking skin.
#6: Never has an excuse not to fit a workout in: “I jump rope because it’s good for the face,” says Sir John who always finds a way to keep his blood pumping when jet setting about – the great thing about a jumping rope is that it is easy to bring along with you anywhere. Exercise helps give your face a natural glow, thanks to the feel-good endorphins and sweat.
#7: Makes resting a priority: “I make sure to get enough sleep, but it might be more for my mood than my skin,” says Sir John. Still sleep is an essential component to healthy-looking skin and lifestyle. Sleep is necessary for your overall wellbeing, which can be reflected in the way you look and feel.
