Professional beauty Patty Luijt doesn’t really like make-up, but she does have some great beauty tips for women with sensitive skin to share!
Q: Hi Patty! A clear skin is very important for a model. How do you take care of your skin?
When I wake up I just use some water to clean my face and after that I like to use some lotion for the clean feeling. After that I put on some day cream. I don’t really like make up so I only use a bit of mascara.
Q: So what kind of skin care products do you use?
I love the Weleda Rosa Mosquetta line from De Tuinen. I have the day cream, oil and scrub. It’s for all skin types and it helps to recover your skin after a shoot.
Q: I haven’t heard of that brand before, thanks for the tip! Besides Rosa Mosquetta, do you have other favorite brands?
Yes, I also I love Bioderma. I have a really sensitive skin and its one of the only products that doesn’t irritate my skin.
Q: That sounds familiar. My skin is very sensitive too. Another skin ‘problem’: let’s talk about spots and pimples. How do you avoid getting them?
I try to keep my skin clean and don’t touch it too much. If you do get one go to the pharmacy to get ´benzoylperioxide´ [editor note: not safe during pregnancy, see full list here]. It helps to get rid of them asap.
Q: It’s true, I’ve used benzoyl as well. But what to do when you have a pimple on that important day?
I put on some benzoylperioxide and I hope that it won’t be too bad the next day!
Q: I think that’s indeed all you can do. Something else: I love going to the spa. Do you go to spa’s? Do you have any favorite ones?
I always love to go to Spa Zuiver in Amsterdam. It’s a beautiful spa with a lot of different sauna’s and they also have a really good restaurant!
High five sister, I love Spa Zuiver as well! Thank you for sharing your beauty ‘secrets’ with us.
