“I try to put something more hard working on when I go to bed – such as a cream with retinol in it – so that it can get to work while I sleep. Ritual wise, I do my skincare and then I dry my hair and then I apply make-up – I really think skincare needs a few minutes to absorb, otherwise your make-up will go on funny.”
Caroline’s skincare picks:
Cleanser: Image Clear Cell Cleanser and Biofresh Probiotic Cleanser
Moisturiser: Murad City Skin SPF – I love this because it’s super light, gives me the protection I need and has never given me any issues. Environ Essenti-A retinol moisturiser is fantastic too
Serum: Image Skincare Iluma serum, I just don’t think you can get a better serum and it brightens the skin so much, the texture is amazing and I feel quite happy to go make-up free with this serum.
Hand cream: CeraVe is my go-to brand for my skin elsewhere on my body. It’s really practical, it does what it’s meant to and there’s nothing sinister in the ingredient list.
Exfoliator: I love the Murad AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser. I prefer not to use exfoliators that have harsh textures – I think it’s better to exfoliate generally with acids but this is a lovely gentle option for when you need a bit of a deeper cleanse and it’s also great on your arms and legs too.
Spot treatment: I love Acne Out lotion to pop directly onto spots whenever I get one or if it’s a particular baddie I like Mario Badescu Drying Lotion.
