We all know how much a long-haul flight can take out of our skin. But despite jet setting around the globe frequently, Kiwi modelling 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 27, 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.
With all the travel she does, 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 fighting post-flight 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
