Meet Hannah English – the woman on a mission to help break down the science behind skincare. With a background in pharmaceutical science, Hannah uses her platform as a content creator and writer to help us all feel a little bit more empowered about our skin care choices. And thank goodness for that!
In this blog episode, we chat to Hannah about self care rituals, her highly optimised and science driven skin care routine as well as her favourite pick of FOREO skin tech devices.
“Self care for me is the little things – remembering to take my medication and put on sunscreen daily, having weekly downtime to just unplug and fill my mind with creative work from the best – magazines, documentaries, art galleries, books. I’m also quite partial to a long bath, to saying ‘no,’ and to speaking up if I’m uncomfortable. Boundaries are self care.”
My AM Routine:
My PM Routine:
“I have this all written down on my bathroom mirror, which helps me to remember the steps! Also, some days I get tired and don’t manage to do a lot in the evening, so on a day like that it’s;
Step 1: Cleanse with Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water and a cotton pad,
Step 2: Pigment Serum,
Step 3: Maybe moisturiser”
Probably the BEAR! Because I get a lot of pain and headaches related to facial muscle tension, and it helps to resolve that super quickly as it lifts. It’s literally 3 minutes per day. So easy.
“The first thing is rethinking my approach – I try to be mindful of always giving back to my skin rather than taking from it, and with each skincare step I ask myself whether it’s giving or taking away. Having my eyebrows done helps immensely, too, it pulls my whole face together and makes everything else seem sort of trivial in comparison.”
“I’m working on a writing piece about at-home skincare tech right now! In my experience, it’s a brilliant middle ground between professional facial services and regular at-home skincare, in terms of technology and results. My advice is always the same – if you can see yourself using it 3+ times per week, you’ll see results that pay for themselves quickly.
