My skin has definitely faced extremes, from the blisteringly cold and harsh winters of St Petersburg, to the similarly damaging strong sun that is so pervasive in Australia.
However, whether I am in cold or warm weather, I moisturise daily, and have become religious about never leaving the house without SPF. I think, like most people, that as I’ve gotten older I have come to view my relationship with sun differently. I now try and stay out of the sun, always seek the shade, wear a hat: all the things my mother would advise me to do.
I make sure I do a mask twice a week, and for me, that’s Rationale #1 The Mask. Usually I do it while having a bath; it’s a bit of me time, and an opportunity to zone out and relax.
For professional treatments, I like to go to All Saints Clinic and Isabel Almeida in Double Bay. I see Isabel for a thorough cleanse and facials and they do great face massages, too.
