UAE-based content creator, Fay Ezzat, talks us through her daily AM to PM skincare and makeup regime.
Talk us through your morning routine.
The ideal basics of my morning skincare routine are a gentle wash, an antioxidant serum, hydrating moisturiser and sunscreen. I start by washing my face with room temperature water and then use my Bioderma purifying cleansing foaming gel for combination/oily skin. After that, I use my antioxidant serum, as it helps to repair and defend skin against sun damage throughout the day. I then use a moisturizer and/or sunscreen from La Roche Posay. I’m also a fan of the Sunday Riley ice cream moisturiser.
How does your evening routine differ?
In the evening, I follow the same routine without the sunscreen, and if I used heavy makeup during the day, I use micellar water to remove everything and then I like to use the Sunday Riley Good Genes Glycolic Acid that helps in relaxing my skin during the night.
What are your go-to skincare products?
My go-to skincare products are the Bioderma cleanser, Clinique toner and La Roche-Posay moisturiser.
Are you a fan of masks?
I’m not really a fan of masks, but I use masks once in a while just to give my skin some extra hydration when I have a long day or during my free time. However, I can’t use them too often as my skin is very oily and using masks can cause breakouts.
How would you describe your approach to makeup?
My relationship with makeup is really minimal because I like to keep it natural because that fits more with my style and character. What can always be found in your makeup bag? You will always find lipstick and concealer in my bag.
What is your go-to fragrance?
It’s hard to choose, but Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Oud Satin Mood is one of my favourite fragrances at the moment.
How do you choose your evening fragrance?
That is a bit tricky for me, as choosing my evening fragrance always depends on what I’m wearing and where I’m going, especially as I would love every fragrance I use to fit a specific atmosphere.
Talk us through your hair routine.
I always use hair products free from sulfate and parabens, vegan products are the best.
What is the most unusual item in your makeup bag?
For me, red lipstick.
