We were lucky enough to catch up with Darphin's Education Manager, Emma Schulz to discuss all things skincare! Often when thinking about skincare, we can be reluctant to try new brands and ingredients in case they don't work with our skin. However, sometimes our complexions need complete overhauls and Emma is on hand to discuss why Darphin products are so good for achieving beautiful skin.
We always say try Darphin, and you'll love Darphin; this is my favourite tip to successful skincare!
Get A Glowing Complexion With Darphin Skincare
- Q How did you begin your career in the beauty industry?
- A I began my career working as a beauty therapist, in my local salon in Surrey. I studied straight beauty therapy from school and have worked in the beauty industry since.
- Q What has been the highlight of your career?
- A The highlight of my career to date certainly has to be becoming an educator. I enjoy helping others and sharing my industry experiences with my delegates and colleagues. Helping others to further their knowledge and career has given me my biggest career highlight, self-satisfaction and personal reward.
- Q What sets Darphin apart from other skincare brands?
- A Darphin is a Parisian skincare brand that is based on product performance through the use of botanical plant extracts and luxurious experiences. The product textures are truly beautiful and instantly melt into the skin. Darphin is a professional brand that is also positioned within 5 star Spas and salons offering the best facial and body treatments the industry has to offer! All treatments are created through the therapists’ hands, using unique massage techniques, to lift, sculpt and shape the facial contours.
- Q What does your daily skincare routine consist of?
- A Cleansing and toning is key, which I do every morning & evening to remove any traces of make-up and pollution. I follow this with my Darphin beauty ritual that consists of using 3 key products. My serum to correct and repair my skin concerns, my face cream to protect my skin from the environment and acts as a great base for my make-up, and finally I cannot live without my essential oil elixir at night to rebalance and detoxify my skin from all my daily aggressions. When I wake in the morning my skin looks fresh and ready to start the day again.
- Q What is your hero product and why?
- A My hero product is defiantly our 8 Flower Nectar Essential Oil Elixir; it is enriched in 8 different essential oils. I call this oil my everything as it hydrates, moisturises, provides radiance, is anti-ageing; it really does treat all skin concerns in one bottle. There is nothing better than 5 drops of this precious oil applied to your face after a long day. It really is that perfect spa treatment to take home!
- Q What is your beauty secret?
- A My top 3 beauty secrets are drinking lots of water, at least 8 hours sleep per night and a weekly boosting ritual. I always exfoliate and use a mask weekly on my skin, to shift away any dulling dead skin cells; this also improves the performance of my daily products. Followed with a radiance boosting mask, to give my skin that extra pick me up through the week!
- Q Should your morning and evening skincare routines be different?
- A At night it is important to feed your skin with a richer product while you sleep. At night is when your skin comes alive and your skin cells are 3-4 times more active between 2am – 4am than through the rest of the day! At Darphin we always suggest adding one of our essential oil elixirs into your evening routine. We believe they are richer than just using a cream at night and will repair your skin cells while you sleep. So when you wake the following morning the skin is fresh, radiant and hydrated, ready to face the day ahead.
- Q Are there any emerging skincare trends coming up that excite you?
- A For me it is definitely using a hybrid product which transforms in different textures during application! So special yet sophisticated and gives many more benefits than just using one type of product, that contains one type of texture, or ingredient!
- Q What is your beauty mantra?
- A Always look after your skin and it will look after you!
- Q What is your favourite ingredient in the Darphin collection and why?
- A For me at Darphin I do not have one favourite ingredient, we often describe Darphin as French secret to a beautiful skin. This would be my favourite ingredient! Darphin harvest the best ingredients from around the world and produce high tech formulas in every product!
