Without going to extremes and prepared to do anything to stop the ravages of time, Sophie understands the importance of looking after the health and beauty of her skin. Simple steps, repeated morning and evening…
Sophie, what kind of relationship do you have with beauty?
I’ve always like to take care of myself. For my own pleasure and because I like to look good to others, but I also quickly realised that first impressions that count. From my 30s, I applied an eye contour cream and had a light peeling treatment each year… Basically, I didn’t want my skin to age too quickly.
And what is your daily beauty regime?
Without spending too much on cosmetics, I have my own little routine which helps me maintain a fresh, healthy complexion… Even in my 40s. In the morning, I apply an anti-ageing cream, which on sunny days I swap for a cream that contains a sunscreen. This is lighter and essential to protect my skin from UV rays, especially since I love having breakfast on my terrace. And as I said, I don’t forget the eye contour, I now use an anti-wrinkle version. In the evening, I remove my make up with an oil then wash my face with a gentle soap-free cleanser. And again, cream, but this time I apply a product that’s suitable for my age to regenerate and boost my skin.
Apart from this daily regime, what else do you do?
Two or three times a year I treat myself to a serum treatment which I apply myself. It all depends on the needs of my skin and the time of year: super moisturising, anti-ageing, anti-dark spot, etc. It’s also a time when I get to discover new anti-wrinkle products. And when winter is over, a light peeling, to start afresh again.
