We met beauty blogger Lydia Elise Millen to talk healthy skincare secrets and her go-to brands...
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial
Here’s a statistic for you – one in five people in the UK claim to suffer from dry and sensitive skin*. Among them is beauty blogger Lydia Elise Millen, who’s made it her mission to share her knowledge on reclaiming a healthy complexion.
One of her skin secrets is Cetaphil. Huge in America and starting to make waves here, Cetaphil’s fragrance-free and pH-balanced cleansers and moisturisers are specially developed for sensitive skin. ‘Two years ago I had treatment for acne and my skin can be very sensitive,’ she says, ‘but I’ve developed a good strategy to combat the problem. I’ve stripped back my skincare and improved my hydration,’ Lydia explains.
‘I use my Cetaphil cleanser and moisturiser because they are mild and don’t strip the skin of its natural oils or upset the pH levels. Cetaphil is a brand that everyone should try because it’s effective at treating so many skin sensitivity issues.’
And what about hydration? ‘I’m a big water drinker and it completely changed my life the day I decided to drink more of it. My skin was instantly improved, as were my energy levels too,’ she says. Her other secrets? Lemons. ‘I have lemon in my food, squeezed in my water and sliced in my tea. It gives my body the kick-start it needs and helps to detox my skin.’
Time is also key to Lydia’s gorgeous complexion. ‘I devote the same level of care and attention to my morning and evening skincare regimes,’ she says. ‘I think of them like little windows in my everyday life where I get to give myself a good pamper, while also benefiting my skin immensely.’
