Tell us something about yourself? We’d like to get to know you.
Hi! I’m Paula the blogger behind The LDN Diaries, an award-winning lifestyle blog packed with fashion, beauty, food and travel tips. I’m based in London but I’m originally from Scotland. Which, if you watch any of my YouTube videos where I share all my beauty secrets and loves, you might have been wondering where my accent is from!
Why is good skin so important to you?
My skin can affect my mood and the way I feel inside, so if it’s not looking great on the outside, it can influence me as a person. It’s not just about having clear skin but I want it to be healthy and glowing at all times. My skin reflects my body’s state and mind, so good skin is a priority for me.
What’s your #1 beauty tip for healthy skin?
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! I was guilty of not doing this enough and ever since I upped my game, my skin is looking the best it has in years.
When did you discover Dr. Dennis Gross? Share your story.
I attended a press event for QVC and in the goodie bag was the famous Alpha Beta Daily Peel Pads. I hadn’t heard of the brand before, but weirdly I caught a glimpse of the pads on skin goddess Rosie Huntington Whitely’s Snapchat also that week. I couldn’t wait to try them and when I did, I instantly loved them. I was excited to find out more about the brand and try more products.
Do you have a favorite Dr. Dennis Gross product? Tell us why!
It’s hard to choose, but I’m going to choose the Clinical Hydration Booster. I use this every day without fail, I love to mix it with my foundation for a hydrated and flawless makeup look. As well as on its own on any parts that need a little more attention. I’ll sneak another one in as I just can’t pick only one! I also love to use the Instant Radiance Sun Defense. It’s so great to see a product that combines a SPF but with coverage. I use it regularly but it’s my go-to for summer and when I’m on vacation.
What’s your Top 5 ‘can’t-live-without’ beauty products?
