When it comes to the skincare routines of women we meet, we’re always all ears for any tips and tricks we can take on as our own. Especially when these women are also balancing busy lives - it can be so easy to let your skin fall to the bottom of the to-do list when life gets hectic. So when we recently did a shoot with stylist Claire Fabb, and became transfixed by her freshness despite being a mum of three and successfully managing a thriving career, we had to know her skincare regime. Luckily for us, and you guys, she happily revealed all. Her secret? Sticking to products that are designed to work with each other, and doing a lot of research to find a brand that works best for her skin. La Prairie is where she landed. Here, she shares her step-by-step morning anti-ageing routine…  


If there’s one thing we’ve learnt in this beauty game, it’s the importance of washing away the day’s grime each and every night, no exceptions. But, for Claire, it’s equally important to cleanse the face in the morning. “I always use my beautiful Foam Cleanser, and not every day but quite a lot I use it with a Clarisonic,” explains Claire. “I use the cleanser morning and night without fail.”


Toners are a beauty product with a bit of ‘middle child syndrome’, it can get lost in the mix. But, although it maybe doesn’t get as much airtime as cleansing and moisturising, it’s a pretty important part of any skincare regime. Claire agrees. “I use the Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion which is a toner that works really beautifully with my skin. I use cotton balls for a really nice, even application.”


Serum is vital, dear readers. If you’re ever thinking of upping your skincare regime to the next level, do it with a serum. They absorb into the skin and have arguably the highest efficacy of all at-home skincare products. “The first serum I ever used, and now use all the time, is the Skin Caviar Crystalline Concentre firming serum,” says Claire. “I add it to my daily regime. But if my skin needs a hydration boost, I go for the Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum. I always use that, I add it into my daily regime. I also use the Platinum Rare Cellular Eye Essence serum.”


Opting for a nourishing face cream seems a bit of a no-brainer for perfecting your complexion, but you’ve got to choose the right one for your skin. This can be a bit of trial and error, but worth the effort. “I use the Skin Caviar Absolute Filler, I just started using it,” says Claire. “I did a bit of searching before I found the perfect one, and this is sublime on my skin. I love it.”


Just as our hair needs a weekly bout of TLC, so too does our skin. Popping a mask on every couple of days will ensure you aren’t constantly chasing your tail to fix your skin’s problem areas – it helps to maintain the hard work your skincare regime is putting in. “Every three days I use the Cellular 3-Minute Peel. It’s my little bit of luxury, my indulgent time,” says Claire. “It’s a bit tingly and you get a little bit of redness so you know it’s really working, but you just wash it off thoroughly and it subsides after ten minutes.”
