Meghan Markle’s Facialist Reveals The Biggest Skincare Mistake People Are Making

Plus, the products she swears by

The quest for glowing and ageless skin seems endless; between the array of products on the market and the list of treatments and techniques that gets longer by the day. So when marie claire chatted to facialist Nichola Joss, who works with the likes of Meghan Markle, Scarlett Johansson and Gisele Bundchen, we got to the bottom of what works and what the celebs love.

“The two most common mistakes women make are not cleansing their skin properly and leaving cleansing particles in the skin,” says Joss. “[This] can lead to disruption and congestion causing breakouts.” The solution, Joss explains is to thoroughly cleanse the skin, as well as making sure to use a toner. “Toning not only helps eliminate cleansing particles but will rebalance the ph level of skin to prep for the next stage.”

As far as the products she swears by, “It’s about having a consistent daily routine.” Swearing by Lumity supplements morning and night for repair and regeneration, as well as Lumity Anti-Ageing Nutrients Facial Oil. “It is the perfect combination of ingredients to feed and nourish the skin. Also using an oil encourages massage, which will aid in removing tension and stress…as well as toxins and leave skin dewy and fresh,” she says.

She also credits massage as her number one tip to combat ageing. “The more you massage the skin and the muscle tissue, the better equipped your future skin will be for ageing. Toned, strong, healthy muscles are more youthful and will also be fuller, plumper and more dewy.”
