The wonderful Anita Brand is a hair and makeup artist who has worked with some of the biggest beauty mags out there! She’s also a huge fan of FrezyDerm.
We had a chat with Anita about the troubles of mixing sun cream with makeup, keeping acne at bay and what her clients ask her the most.
FrezyDerm: Anita, how long have you worked in the industry?
AB: I have been a Makeup and hair stylist for more than 12 years. I have worked for magazines such as Glamour, Lucky, Vogue, Hello, Life&Style, Status, Men’s Health, Women’s Health and more! The past few years, beside catalogue shootings and campaigns, I have been focusing on building my career in television.
FD: What was the first FrezyDerm product you used, and how do you use it now?
AB: My first ever FrezyDerm product was the facial sunblock, Velvet Face. Since I have very pale, oily skin I need SPF 50 every day and we all know the higher the SPF the thicker the consistency of the cream.
I was always looking for a matte finish in sun care products. Then I found the Velvet Face SPF 50 and have never separated from it since. Because of its velvety texture it makes my skin appear smoother, it almost works like a face primer but it also protects my sensitive skin from the sun.
FD: Do you use any other FrezyDerm products?
I used to have facial acne that wouldn’t go away, no matter what help I received. I tried different doctors, different treatments and since I did not want to take the pills for acne I decided to take actions into my own hands! I thought I had nothing to lose.
A pharmacist friend of mine introduced me to FrezyDerm’s line for acne. To tell you the truth I didn’t believe that it would work, but it did!!!
I have used the ac-norm active cleanser, the ac-norm Medilike Effect 3 Cream and I still use the ac-norm Medilike Effect 1 Cream every evening even though my skin is now clear of acne. If I have a zit I always have in my car the ac-norm Spot Care to put on.
I am also using the Sea Side Dry Mist SPF 50+. I love the fact that it is a spray so no mess when applied!
FD: What would be your top skincare tip for others?
Drink lots and lots of water and do a lot of CLEANING!!! Just clean your face even multiple times a day if you can, then hydrate and use sunscreen! As a makeup artist I find it incredible if someone has a beautiful, clean, acne-free, spot-free skin!
FD: What questions do your clients ask you about the most?
The most common is about hydrating the skin or what to use on very oily skin.
