A hard-working retinol, an arsenal of antioxidant packed serums and a zinc-oxide infused sunscreen are just a few of the things you’ll find in skin expert Dr Katina Koukourou’s own beauty cupboard. The face behind Lifestyle Medical tells us more.
My morning routine begins with cleansing using SkinCeuticals Simply Clean Gel Cleanser. This is followed by Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum and SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum. These serums contain vitamins and antioxidants that generate anti-ageing effects on the skin cells. Next is the SkinCeuticals A.G.E Interrupter Corrective Cream – this product improves the reparative ability of the skin’s natural collagen and elastin. The Medik8 Physical Sunscreen, which contains zinc oxide, is applied just before my make-up.
At night, I swap out the sunscreen for Medik8 Crystal Retinal, which contains Vitamin C to promote cell turnover, and SkinCeuticals A.G.E Eye Complex to reduce fine lines under the eyes.
I indulge in a few regular treatments – my go-to is a combination of skin needling and LED Light Therapy, alternating between a Jessner Peel and intense pulse light treatment (IPL) triennially. I maintain with three-monthly wrinkle relaxants and lip treatments. I like a natural look, so I tend to not overdo the dermal filler. I do believe that non-invasive anti-ageing treatments can deliver results, particularly when paired with healthy lifestyle choices and a regular daily skincare routine.
