    All Things Tween And Teen Skincare With Skin Therapist Jeanie Cordy-Simpson

    Leonora had a super quick catch-up with the incredible professional skin therapist Jeanie Cordy Simpson. The main item on the agenda was tween and teen skincare.
    Leo was amazed to hear that when it comes to skin, children as young as 8-10 are considered teens in the skin world. We talked about when to start a proper skincare routine and how to do it. We discussed which products to invest in, the right SPF as well as every common skin complaint experienced in adolescence. We even talked about what to do when a monster spot erupts! This is a must school run listen.

He shares simple ideas everybody can implement - for example, the use of a microfibre filter to capture all those nasty bits of plastic, stain removal, and why none of us should ever use a dry cleaner ever again!
