Facialist Melanie Grant shares top anti-ageing secrets

The Australian facialist and so-called ‘skin whisperer’ – who is behind the luminous complexions of Lara Worthington, Jessica Gomes and Phoebe Tonkin – has the kind of dewy, baby-faced look of a devoted professional.

Take one look at Melanie Grant’s flawless skin, and you can tell she’s on to a good thing.

Recently, the expert, 36, shared her anti-ageing skin secrets – some of which might surprise you.

For those looking to smoothe out a few lines or prevent the appearance of crow’s feet, it would seem you need to opt for less Botox and fewer fillers to get that facialist-like glowing complexion.

According to Melanie, the most common mistake women make as they try to prevent the onset of middle-age is reaching for the needle more than they should:

‘Overuse of Botox and filler… can actually make us look older,’ she told Byrdie. ‘If you decide to go down this path be discerning with your injector and remember less is more.’

The expert also cites scrimping on sunscreen or relying on the SPF in your make up as one of the things that could be making you look older than you are.

‘The best anti-ageing product is sunscreen for sure. Invest in a good-quality, broad spectrum, high SPF specifically for the face,’ she told the publication.

Melanie recommends Elta MD SPF 46 as a great product, which you will find easy to wear every single day.

Next on the anti-ageing regime list, Melanie says you need to double cleanse each and every night:

‘First with an oil cleanser, then a lactic acid cleanser if your skin isn’t too sensitive. The oil will break down makeup, dirt and oil, and the lactic acid cleanser will deep clean brighten, exfoliate, and stimulate collagen,’ she said.

She also recommends exfoliating every second or third night, followed by eye cream, night cream and a Retinol every so often.

By day, Melanie’s prescription is similarly thorough – vitamin C serum, SPF and Hyarulonic Acid and vitamin B5 are the main players.

The expert – who has more than 20 years experience in the industry – recently shared a few of her other tips for women and their skin, which included moisturising their necks and decolletage as well as their face.

‘This area is often forgotten and is, in fact, more prone to damage due to being thinner and having less oil glands than the face,’ she explained previously.

Melanie also believes that you should ‘never go to bed without washing your face’.
