We tapped Elyse to discover her top skincare tips, her favourite product in the Nude By Nature range, and to find out how she remains in such phenomenal shape.
What are your best skincare tips for our Remix beauty-gurus?
I’m all about clean, clear skin. I cleanse and moisturize morning and night, exfoliate every other day and apply a mask… and I also invest in regular oxygen facials and deep tissue massages.
Could you run us through your daily skincare routine?
My typical beauty routine is; an oil cleanser in the morning, followed by an Eye Cream and at the moment Tata Harper skincare products.
If you had to live with only one Nude by Nature product, what one would you choose?
Definitely the new Flawless Concealer - I always keep this in my handbag as it’s perfect for touch ups before getting off the plane or in a taxi in between meetings.
How do you get that perfect natural “no make-up” look?
I try to remain relaxed with my makeup, very understated and not too overdone. To keep it super natural, I use the Nude by Nature Flawless Liquid Foundation to even my skin tone along with the Touch of Glow Highlight stick in Rose on my cheeks for a pop of colour. I finish the look with a mascara if I have meetings or a casting.
What are the top foods you eat for having beautiful glowing skin?
I follow the Blood type diet. Lately my diet consists of porridge and a banana in the morning, for lunch I’ll have protein (chicken or tuna) with a salad and usually a piece of fish and vegetables for dinner.
What are your top 3 Nude by Nature products for season changes?
I have really dry skin, as I’m travelling consistently and can be changing seasons in the same week. So my go-to is the Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB Cream as it’s a light coverage, but super nourishing with Aloe Vera and Desert Date Oil, plus it contains an SPF which is great for shoot days. I find the Airbrush Primer is great when coming into the warmer months, as it keeps my foundation in place and reduces any shine. Also I love the Nude by Nature Highlight Sticks, their so versatile for any time or season – I use them on my lips, cheeks and even as a touch of eyeshadow for a quick glow.
Why is skincare so important to you?
For me, healthy, clean skin is everything – it’s my job to ensure it’s looking it’s best! Just keep it simple and invest in your skin!
Nude by Nature is naturally derived and cruelty free – why do you prefer natural and mineral products over other products?
I love that Nude by Nature products are all natural, and from synthetic ingredients or preservatives. Knowing I'm not using nasty chemicals such as parabens, silicone, talc and bismuth that can age and irritate my skin, is really important to me.
What does the phrase ‘feel good in your own skin’ mean to you?
Being comfortable and confident, and feeling your best mentally and physically…
