Have you ever had to deal with any skincare issues?
I struggled with acne in my teenage years. I went through numerous different treatments until I was treated by a dermatologist with Roaccutane, which was the only treatment that cleared my skin. This treatment transformed my skin – it was life changing for me.
What is your skincare regime?
I double cleanse every morning with @biologique_recherche_ireland Lait EV, and follow this with the Biologique Recherche P50V lotion. I wear a Vitamin C serum and @eltamdskincare UV Clear Sunscreen or @aveneusa Mineral Tinted Sunscreen. In the evening, I wear a retinol followed by my BR Crème Masque Vernix.

Definitely my sunscreen!
