#MYMECCASKIN: A MECCA makeup artist shares her tried-and-tested skincare routine for hormonal acne

SKIN, LET’S FACE IT, IS A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP. SOME DAYS IT’S GREAT—GLOWING AND CLEAR—AND SOME DAYS, NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU CARE FOR IT, IT JUST WANTS TO PLAY YOU. WHEN IT COMES TO SKINCARE, EVERYONE HAS THEIR UNIQUE SOLUTIONS: THE INSTANT GRATIFIERS AND THE ONES THAT PLAY HARD TO GET (BUT TURN OUT TRULY WORTHY IN THE END). IN THIS SERIES, #MYMECCASKIN, WE TAP SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE MAKEUP PEOPLE TO TAKE IT ALL OFF AND REVEAL THEIR SKIN STORY AND THE PRODUCTS THEY USE TO MANAGE THIS CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED SKIN.

“To have a pimple or a blemish is ok, just learn to embrace your own skin.” Meet Isabella, a MECCA makeup artist from Melbourne. While she naturally wears a full—and may we add, flawless—face of makeup on the daily, under the surface she gets hormonal acne along the jaw and cheeks. To manage it? A healthy lifestyle and an equally as healthy skincare obsession complete with makeup removing cleansers, Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads for exfoliation, weekly hydrating face masks and her secret weapon salicylic-acid spot treatment. Press play to hear her story and see how she learnt to love her skin.
