Tell us about your skincare journey and why skincare is important to you?
"I have broadly had good skin all my life, until about 6 years ago when I suddenly experienced a lot more breakouts, dry patches and sensitivity. Having always had good skin I was shocked and upset by the dramatic change. I went to a dermatologist when I realised it wasn't going to go away on its own. She recommended that I stop using all the products I had till then and stripped back my skincare to Skinceuticals only. I did and my skin recovered! I then slowly reintroduced new brands and products but it left me with a great belief in the brand and I haven't had issues since. When I was pregnant I had all sorts of hormonal changes to my skin but I trusted the B5 serum as simple and effective everyday."
