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 supermodels alike, Sir John, creates his makeup masterpieces after encouraging and creating beautiful blank canvases. After all, a flawless complexion is a key component of any makeup look—and it all starts with great skin. It’s only fitting that his own skin care routine is on point, helping to perfectly keep his combination skin in line. Here, take a look at his expert skin care tips and tricks.
You’ve likely heard of multi-masking by now—it is one of the biggest skin care trends, after all. Multi-masking is a must for any skin care routine because it allows you to customize your face mask experience based on your varying skin care concerns. Instead of applying one face mask all over, you apply multiple masks to targeted areas, based on your concerns.
Because of his combination skin, Sir John has to do a balancing act when it comes to taking care of his complexion—and that factors into his masking routine. If you have an oily T-zone, like Sir John, apply a mattifying clay mask to that area. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, which is formulated for shiny, oily skin.
Have you heard the hype about glycolic acid? According to Mayo Clinic, glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that can help remove dead skin cells. While this popular skin care ingredient can be found in a variety of skin care products, Sir John is a fan of one glycolic acid product in particular, saying, “I love glycolic toner and use it three times a week.”
“I don’t break out as much as I used to, so I don’t use salicylic acid as frequently now that I’m getting older,” Sir John explains. “Now, I’m focusing on hydrating, so I look for products formulated with hyaluronic acid and rose oil.”
Want to follow in Sir John’s footsteps? Grab a facial moisturizer that’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care - Extra Dry Skin.
A can't-skip skin care treatment? Sir John has laser hair removal high on his list of essential skin care treatments for looking smooth and sleek on any given day. Thinking about trying laser hair removal for yourself? According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), this type of hair removal treatment works best for those with fair skin and thick, dark hair.
Self-care doesn’t only refer to kicking up your feet and relaxing with a face mask. You can also show yourself a little love by working out regularly. Sir John’s favorite way to keep his blooding pumping? Jump roping! Try this workout—which is perfect for those always on the go, like Sir John—just make sure to follow a post-workout skin care routine afterward!
Another daily habit that plays a major role in your skin? Sleep. “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—seriously, the AAD even notes that beauty sleep is no joke. So, if you want to look your best and put a rest to those under-eye bags, make sure you’re getting a good night’s sleep.
