Skin care secrets and routines - Valerie Roy interviewed by Crina Okumus

GYN & PERINATAL ZURICH > Secrets and routine in skin care - Valerie Roy interviewed by Crina Okumus

From the podcast HOW CAN I HEAL? - Crina Okumus(

The world of beauty is full of myths and urban legends, arguably even more so when it comes to skincare. And while I'm not saying you shouldn't listen to the wise skincare tips your mother or grandmother gave you, the truth is that many of the common things we've been led to believe are just that - myths.

So to help separate fact from fiction, Crina Okumus decided to invite Valerie Roy, a good friend of mine whose skin looks just perfect. She has worked as a model in the fashion industry for more than 20 years, has no commercial interests and loves to share her long-term secrets that make her skin look perfect: Crina Okumus and Valerie Roy's talk is divided into 3 parts: 1. cleansing, 2. acids and 3. moisturising.
