The first belle of Tatler's Before Bed series is Sunnies Face's co-founder Jess Wilson. Join Jess and discover her skincare secrets, hacks, nightmares and tips:
What's your skin type?
Somewhere between dry and normal. I break out a lot, otherwise, I have normal skin.
Who or what influenced your skincare routine?
Allure and my sister.
What is your evening skincare routine?
I have a lot of products on rotation, but my constants are IS Clinical face wash, ZO Acne Pads, ZO Brightening Cream, Pixi Glow Tonic and Ultraviolette sunscreen.
What are your holy grail products? What skincare product can you not live without?
It changes a lot, but I've always loved Clarins Double Serum, Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream and Pixi Glow Tonic.
How did you find a skincare routine that works for you? What was your trial and error process?
A lot of trial and error and a lot of research. I personally enjoy collecting and trying out lots of skincare products; so for me, it was a lot of fun figuring out what worked and what didn't.
What is a skincare hack you think we should know?
Thick cream on your neck every night before you sleep.
Do you use facemasks?
I have tons but I don't use them too often. I usually save them for an event. But these days, it's when I'm feeling extra at home.
Do you have a beauty or skincare horror story?
I know it's bad—but I prick my pimples, so that's a constant horror story!
How often do you practice skin fasting (a break from skincare)?
Often. My skin often breaks out when I have too much fun with skincare and do a full evening routine.
Are there any skincare rules you’ve broken that have done wonders to your skin?
I use a lot of acids to exfoliate, although that's widely accepted nowadays. I [also] used to put toothpaste on my pimples back in high school but have upgraded to Mario Badescu drying lotion [which] basically does the same thing.
