What you do:

Make-up artist, blogger and founder of Huda Beauty and Wishful Skin.

What do you love most about your skin?

I love my skin now; I didn’t necessarily love it so much before. My skin has been a journey. I’ve had acne, adult acne, scarring, freckling and pigmentation, and it’s still very much a work in progress, though it has definitely become more even and soft. I also love that it’s my skin as I have learned how to take care of it, and I’m proud of it now.

What one skin issue do you wish you could fix?

I would love to be able to fix pigmentation as people regularly ask me how to fix it. I don’t have sun damage pigmentation, just the kind that comes from dry skin around the mouth area. So it’s not my skin issue, but I am curious how to fix it for people.

What is your favourite skin product and why?

Ooh, I really do love the skincare products that we are working on – there’s a few of them, but I love the Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub. It’s a three-in-one formula combining enzymes, acids and physical exfoliation to reveal glowing skin – plus, it’s gentle, making it great for all skin types. I just know I can count on it because of its quality, raw ingredients.

Your first skin product purchase:

It was the L’Oréal three-step cleanser, toner and moisturiser. It didn’t work well for me though as it made my skin break out. My skin is very sensitive, so I’ve learnt over time what I can and can’t use – that’s not to say it wouldn’t work for someone else though.

The one thing you wouldn’t be without?

I keep a really good rose oil [with me at all times] as it heals and hydrates the skin without being too greasy.

Take us through your Sunday skincare routine:

In Dubai [where I live], it’s actually Saturday that we do this, not Sunday. I do a head-to-toe exfoliation, which I like to do in the bath so I get really into it. Facially, I like to mask, usually a sheet mask like TonyMoly, and then I will usually do a pretty intense treatment mask like the 111 Skin Celestial Black Diamond Lifting And Firming Treatment Mask. I also love doing the three-step microdermabrasion at home from Ole Henriksen [the Power Peel Transforming Facial System]. It’s so good as it has an almond scrub, a lemon peel and a lavender mask. So I would do that and then just hydrate as usual.
