Despite the demands of a busy modelling career, Kiwi success story Georgia Fowler manages to maintain luminously healthy skin.
Fowler says sheâ€™s somewhere in between a minimalist and maximalist when it comes to her own skincare routine. â€śI used to be very unfussy about my routine,â€ť she admits. â€śMy mum never talked about what products she used or if she used anything for that matter,â€ť Fowler laughs.
Now, at the age of 29, she takes her skincare regimen more seriously. â€śNow I make sure I take my make-up off after every job.â€ť
She has a few favourites when it comes to cleansing and loves Biologique Recherche P50 Lotion.
â€śI love using a serum under my moisturiser and I have quite a few that I rotate depending on whatâ€™s in which bag,â€ť she says. â€śDr Barbara Sturm has some great serums and Chanel Blue Serum is great too,â€ť Fowler says.
Fowlerâ€™s big on switching up her routine to suit the season and her skinâ€™s needs. â€śIf Iâ€™m in New York and itâ€™s winter and my skinâ€™s really dry, or if Iâ€™m on a plane, Iâ€™ll use a thicker moisturiser. If Iâ€™m in Sydney and itâ€™s summer Iâ€™ll go for something lighter with an SPF.â€ť
As for dehydrated skin, Fowler makes an effort to stay hydrated from within. â€śI really notice a difference if I drink enough water when Iâ€™m on a flight. And then I use a mask too.â€ť She loves the CosMedix Rescue Intense Hydrating Balm and Mask as it acts as a barrier, locking moisture in.
Make-up wise, unsurprisingly Fowler tries not to use too much when sheâ€™s off the job. She says one of the biggest lessons she has learnt is that putting too much on your skin can really age it. â€śItâ€™s about making sure you have the right colour foundation and concealer, and putting it where you really need it.â€ť
She says Chanel Vitalumiere Acqua foundation is one of her current favourites. â€śIf I put just five minutes into doing a few tiny things it does make a big difference.â€ť
Fowler says her go-to make-up routine is a little bit of concealer; brushing up and filling in her brows; and then a cream contour or blush that sheâ€™ll smudge into her lips, cheeks and her eyelids. â€śI love keeping it really simple.â€ť
