Skin Expert

A bad skin day can really get you down. I'm passionate about helping you to address your skincare concerns and tackling them with you.

Biography

I am a fully-qualified aesthetician with an HNC & HND in Beauty Therapy, an HNC in Complementary Therapies and an HNC in Makeup Artistry. I have previously worked in medical-led aesthetics clinics, working and training with a number of leading brands and powerful skin-transforming machines.

The battle with skin disease can be tough, confidence-degrading and can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. I will use my knowledge and expertise to simplify the process, using scientifically-proven medical-grade formulas that are powerful, safe and will improve overall skin quality and health. Skincare is a journey, and not all skincare ingredients work for every person. However, I am on that journey with you, and will help you every step of the way to that perfect skincare routine and healthy skin.

When I'm not seeing clients in-clinic and online, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family above all else. Keeping fit, good health and walking is important to me, so I'm lucky to be surrounded by outstanding scenery here in Perth to keep fit! I also have a beautiful little two year old girl who keeps me on my toes; she's like a mini best friend!

Laurie's skin routine

I use ZO Skin Health's Exfoliating Cleanser, and love how clean and shiny my skin feels after using it; no other cleanser compares. I follow that with ZO Complexion Renewal Pads, and then ZO Exfoliating Polish. Their Exfoliating Polish is like an at-home microdermabrasion treatment, as the ultra-fine crystals create a clear and smooth complexion. ZO Wrinkle + Texture Repair is a perfect anti-ageing serum I use 2-3 times per week at night time. I finish with ZO's Smart Tone Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen. Smart Tone works so well for me, as I love the idea of being tanned but know the damaging effects it has on my skin. I fake it with ZO's Smart Tone mixed with some tanning drops. That way, I'm protected from UVA, UVB, HEV & IR-A light but still have a natural glow.

Laurie's top tip

Always take professional advice before starting more potent retinols, to ensure you get the right products for your skin and have support throughout to get you through any anticipated reactions.
