An Expert Dermatologist Shares Her Beauty Dozen

Dr Justine Kluk is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to skincare. What she doesn't know about skin health and the products that help boost a healthier complexion isn't worth knowing. From the concealer she can’t live without to her own tried and tested routine, this is Justine’s little black book of recommendations…

For cleansing…

Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid to deeply cleanse and hydrate. It also contains niacinamide to calm inflammation and is non-comedogenic, which makes it perfect for people who have battled breakouts.

For glow…

I love Skinceuticals Phloretin CF serum and apply it to my face, neck and décolletage each morning after cleansing. This powerful product contains 10% pure vitamin C, which helps guard against damage from environmental aggressors and makes your complexion appear brighter and more even.

For anti-ageing…

As I’m now in my mid-30s, my priorities involve delaying the onset of wrinkles and keeping my skin looking smooth and firm for as long as possible. Vitamin A derivatives, such as retinol, are the gold standard ingredient to address this need, and I love Medik8 Crystal Retinal 6.

For hydration…

La Roche Posay Effaclar H is my go-to as it adds moisture without greasiness. It’s designed specifically for spot-prone skin that may also be dry from treatment, such as retinoids, benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar H, £14.40 (was £16)

For tired eyes...

BareMinerals SPF20 Correcting Concealer has a really nice creamy texture and gives good coverage. I use it to cover dark circles under my eyes and love the fact that it doesn’t crease or flake.

For lips…

Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Arthur is a bright and punchy red with a lovely soft, buttery texture. It looks super glossy and velvety smooth even on the most parched winter lips. I always feel that little bit more confident when I'm wearing it.

For nails…

For day to day I think a simple nude nail like Essie’s Not Just a Pretty Face looks feminine, elegant and sophisticated.

For foolproof liner…

Eyeko Eye Do is a gorgeous inky black liquid liner that’s super easy to use. The felt tip style is effortless to handle and doesn't budge all day long.

For fragrance...

One of the stand-out perfumes I’ve enjoyed again and again over the years is Diptyque’s Philosykos. It always reminds me of balmy summer evenings.

For a cut…

My hairdresser Mario Sammour is an utter genius and I don’t know what I would do without him. My hair is very fine but his blow dries makes it look like I have twice as much volume.

DLUX3000 Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray, £7.95 | Better You
DLUX3000 Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray, £7.95 | Better You

For a health boost…

A vitamin D supplement is a really good idea to support healthy teeth, bones, muscles and immune function without the perils of premature ageing and skin cancer from excess UV exposure. Better You DLUX3000 daily vitamin D oral spray is my product of choice.

Better You DLUX3000 Daily Vitamin D Oral Spray, £7.95

For a treat…

I never feel ‘done’ unless my fingers and toes look neat and tidy, so I love Dry By on Mortimer Street for keeping me groomed.
