Medical grade skin specialist, founder of the Lash Lab and the Face Lab, Rebecca Walker talks to Emirates Woman about her AM to PM beauty routine.
Talk us through your morning routine.
I absolutely love to move my body for at least 30 minutes first thing in the morning, so my go-to is usually a Pilates class at my favourite studio, Posture on the Palm. If I can’t get there, then I will always take my dogs for a long walk outside for some fresh air. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country, where nine months out of the year we can walk outside in the sunshine.
Do you have a pre-bedtime routine?
First and foremost, I always make sure I have washed the day off my face with a double cleanse routine using my ZO skin health products. I use the balancing cleanser for my first cleanse then the exfoliating cleanser for my second cleanse. I then use the complexion pads and finish it off with a growth serum. Twice a week, I add a brightening retinol cream. After I have finished with my face, I love to put my hair in a bun and watch documentaries snuggled up to my doggies. I also make sure I have had enough hydration throughout the day as well.
What are the skincare products you cannot live without?
I am a huge advocate of medical grade skincare. There is no substitute for quality. The products I absolutely cannot live without are the ZO skin health exfoliating polish, ZO skin health growth factor serum and the ZO skin health exfoliating cleanser.
Which mask is your favourite and why?
I love Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, I have dry skin so it really helps with deep hydration. I also love Tata Harper’s Superkind Radiance Mask for a quick glow!
How would you describe your approach to makeup?
My makeup style is minimal, I love to show off my skin and the skin of my beautiful clients to glow from the inside out. Of course, I love a tinted SPF and some mascara for those running out the door, racing the clock kind of days.
What product is the staple of your makeup bag?
Chanel universal bronzer, the hourglass setting powder and Dior lip oil.
Which fragrances are you currently wearing?
I love Dior Bois D’Argent fragrance, it smells like sunshine and always makes me happy. I am also partial to Tom Ford, Rose Prick. For evening I love Chanel, Coco Noir. It has been a constant in my life for a long time. I wear Louis Vuitton, Imagination.
Talk us through your haircare routine.
I don’t really have a routine, but I have to say that my Dyson airwrap is incredible. I am a skin girl, but my Dyson always helps me feel fresh even on the days where I haven’t washed my hair.
What is your ultimate beauty indulgence?
Micro-needling every four to six weeks, it’s especially great for those of us who live our lives in the sun.
What anti-ageing product is your favourite?
A medical grade retinol, everyoneshould be on this from the age of 25 for anti-ageing. I love retinol for skin brightening and anti-ageing. It’s my absolute favourite and I use ZO Skin health products for this.
What is your time saving beauty hack?
Great, hydrated, healthy skin, so you don’t have to wear a lot of make-up. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of water, go to bed at a reasonable
hour and glow from the inside out.
