Vanity Affairs: Pip Edwards On Her Secret To Youthful Skin
Warning: reading on may cause spending of excessive funds on really good beauty products.
Welcome to Vanity Affairs—a series where we document the beauty routines of notable people.
There are some people who have an I-can’t-put-my-finger-on-it kind of glow—a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. You know the ones—their hair falls just right, their skin is dewy but never shiny, and they seem to exude confidence.
In the interest of public service, we’ve set about tracking down these actors, influencers, models, founders, entrepreneurs, musicians, spokespeople (and more!!) to find out their secrets. Have you got your pen and paper ready?
Today, we’re raiding the beauty cupboard of P.E Nation co-founder, Pip Edwards.
As the woman behind one the world’s most successful activewear brands, Edwards knows a thing or two about combining style with functionality. And it’s a philosophy that she also adopts when it comes to her skincare routine.
Recently aligning herself with SPF brand, Naked Sundays, Edwards’s secret to her ever-glowing complexion lies in protecting her skin from the elements. A lesson we should all pay attention to!
Here, she shares every single product she uses in her daily beauty routine.
“A healthy, happy life creates health, happy skin. I am always here for clean, glowing and slightly sun-kissed skin. To me, that means lots of hydration and face oil, with a dewy highlighted finish. Beauty runs deep and all that’s inside is what actually shines through. But in terms of skincare, every morning my base always started with the Naked Sundays Collagen Glow Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50+ and a layer of the Go-To Face Oil. It’s that simple! At night I use my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm to remove any makeup and dirt from the day. I follow this up with the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum all over my face and down my neck so my skin can soak in all the hydration it needs overnight.”
“For my everyday face I love the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation and the Estee Lauder Mascara for thick, separated and lengthened lashes. I also use the McoBeauty Liquid Highlighter to bring luminosity back into my skin and the NARS Liquid Blush in Super Orgasm for a bit of colour. I also use Macabalm around my eyes and on my lips at least three times a day and love the Naked Sundays SPF 50+ Lip Oil for a slight wash of colour.”
“I am definitely a wash-and-wear kind of girl when it comes to my hair. I will do a quick wash using Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner–it’s my favourite combination. I will also always use a hair mask while I’m in the shower. The one I’m loving at the moment is from Bondi Boost. Once I’m out of the shower, with towel dried hair, I use loads of leave-in treatment. The O&M Hair Treatment works really well on my heavily bleached hair. Then I let my hair air dry (as I love that natural, messy, undone look). If I’m heading to the beach, I will also always pack my Schwarzkopf Leave-In Conditioner and use it between ocean swims.”
