Asher, first of all, tell us a little bit about yourself and why you blog

I am a pro make artist and hair stylist. I initially studied law degree at university. I later went to London College of Fashion to study makeup artistry. I studied hairdressing at college. I am mother, wife and beauty junkie.

Blogging gives me the opportunity to inspire others and share my knowledge and experience with people.

Why is skincare and beauty so important to you?

Skincare and beauty affects your confidence, mental health and general wellbeing. It is a passion and a lifestyle for me and it brings out the best of my creativity.

What are your favourite skincare ingredients?

Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that help fade hyperpigmentation evens out skin tone and brightens the skin.

As someone with combination skin Salicylic Acid is great for keeping spots at bay.

What are your must-have skincare products? What is the last product that you purchased that you’re loving?

Tata Harper Hydrating Essence, Origins Mega- Mushroom Relief and Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion and Dr Sebagh Deep Exfoliating Mask.

The last product I brought was Dr Sebagh Vitamin C powder cream. Non-irritating and travel friendly.

As you know Wow Beauty is committed to promoting self care, what are some of your non negotiable selfcare rituals?

Face masking, body exfoliation and plenty of sleep.

What difference has locked down life made to how you practise self care? What items have helped to get you through lockdown?

Without the distractions that life brings, lockdown has allowed me to spend more time to indulge in beauty products. I have used it to test loads of products on my skin and hair that otherwise I would not have done because of the risk of sudden break outs.

What is your typical daily skin care routine like? Has anything changed since lockdown?

Cleanse, face mist, essence, serum, moisturiser and SPF. My routine hasn’t been affected because I like to maintain a simple routine.

What changes or developments would you like to see in the beauty landscape over the next year.

I would like to see further development in the inclusive beauty movement. The standard by which consumers challenge traditional stereotypes.
