Tips from a skin expert - part III.


The third and final part of our skin tips with Dr. Gayathri K. Perera, Consultant Dermatologist at West Middlesex University Hospital, aims to provide you with a final few pieces of personal skincare advice...

If you were to give just one tip on how to care for your skin, what would it be?

The key thing to remember is that everyone’s skin is different so you need to make sure that you adopt a tailored approach and use the right products for your skin type. I would recommend having a consultation with a beauty therapist or a dermatologist to determine what’s best for you.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?

To look after my skin, cleanse morning and night, be sure to remove all make-up and use a good moisturiser.

Catch up!

If you haven't read them already, don't forget to check out part I and part II of our series of skincare tips with Dr. Gayathri K. Perera.
