Stars without makeup: see the stars without makeup and love it!
If you’re looking to give your skin a professional boost, look no further than Melanie Grant. The Australian skin care expert, who tends to the brightest complexions Jennifer Aniston, Victoria Beckham and Joan Smalls, is full of useful tips and tricks to give your skin essential TLC… without an appointment!
Sydney’s wanted facialist, who is Chanel’s skin care expert, shared a series of exclusive videos with Us Weekly’s Stylish to show readers like you how to do a facial at home. The expert is also one of the beauty professionals to share cleaning tips and advice in the new issue of We weekly, on newsstands now – or download it here!
The pro filmed his facial from his aesthetic bathroom, wearing a white bathrobe and a matching headband. She begins by introducing herself and declares that a DIY facial does not require “100 different products” and does not have to be “too complicated”.
Grant encourages beauty lovers to turn to their pantry to find skin-loving ingredients. Instead of buying certain products, it is possible to create a homemade version of some popular facial essentials. For example, the skin care expert suggests using honey for a nourishing face mask or coffee grounds mixed with jojoba oil for an exfoliant. Keep this in mind if you decide to recreate her routine, described below!

The beauty pro’s nighttime facial routine includes skin care products from Cosmedix, Chanel, Odacite and Vinter’s Daughter.
First of all, Grant begins by massaging the Cosmedix Purity Clean exfoliating cleanser on his skin in circular motions. “I like this because it contains 5% lactic acid and peppermint oil,” she says, before removing the cleanser with a warm, damp cloth. These ingredients work together to exfoliate dead skin cells while calming the skin.
For a more thorough cleaning, she recommends exfoliation with Chanel Sublimage Les Grains de Vanille. But for her facial, she jumps directly into the gentle peeling treatment Odacite Bioactive Rose Gommage.
Grant applies just a thin layer before letting it dry completely. After giving it between five and ten minutes, she cleans the formula with a damp cloth.
Then it’s time for the most relaxing part of all: massage. While the experience is probably a little more luxurious when someone else does the work, you can still make your skin more sculpted by doing it yourself.

She mixes a small amount of Vinter girl serum and Odacite Camelina chamomile serum for massage, before massaging it in circular movements to stimulate blood circulation.
Finally, Grant complements his facial care at home with a hydrating and nourishing night mask, in particular the Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia repair mask. And There you go! That’s it! Not that hard, right?
