Q+A

"P ERF ECT SKIN
D OES NOT EXIST "
Made in Chelsea's Georgia Toffolo discusses the impact bad skin had
on her mental health and why she uses social media to inspire others

W

hy is it so important
to you to normalise
talking about our
skin concerns?
What I took away when I was suffering
with my skin was that the impact was
not just aesthetic, but also had a knockon effect on my mental health. I'm so
fortunate to have this lovely platform on
social media where I can get direct access
to people, and I think it's important to
use that. I've become an unintentional
advocate for skin positivity.

INTERVIEW Georgia Lockstone

What motivated you most to team
up with Dermalogica for its new
#skindividual campaign?
The campaign stood out because I've
been preaching for so long that perfect
skin does not exist. The goal has to
be healthy skin. I was fortunate enough
to use some of the products from the
range for a whole month before the
launch, and I saw such a positive reaction
from my skin.

What's your beauty regime for your
hair and body?
I'm definitely not a natural blonde, so
I use to make my colour last longer. I also
love slathering up in NUXE oil, which is
really versatile. If I go on holiday, I use
it on my hair as well. When it comes
to make-up, I like to keep it natural, so
I use No7 The Full 360 Mascara in brown,
because it's nice and subtle.
When you're not all glammed up, what
do you like to do in your downtime?
I love reading. I've got a little book club
that I started on my Instagram, and it's
so wonderful to have a different kind of
engagement from people. We read one
book every three weeks, and then talk
about it on the last Sunday of the month.
I'm so glad I started it!

What advice would you give to anyone
who is struggling to go make-up free?
Don't force it. Even six months ago, the
thought of going make-up free would
have made me shudder. Truthfully, the
days of me avoiding people in the street
because I have no make-up on really
aren't that long ago. Sometimes even now
when I'm having a bad skin day, "makeup free" is just a little bit of concealer, and
maybe I'll skip the mascara. And that's
really OK.
How do you keep a healthy balance
when it comes to your general
wellbeing?
If I didn't have a really fun girls' dinner
and go dancing once a week, I would
go stir crazy. I'm also quite good with
walking to my meetings if it's not really
raining. Walking when I can, and a
naughty night out once a week - I think
that's true balance!

I don't wear really thick foundation any
more. Now I've been on this journey,
I'm not embarrassed by my skin, so I'd
much rather wear a really light, subtle
foundation that shows off my natural
shade.

Have you found any lifestyle factors
have affected your skin?
I used to find it so frustrating when
people would always say things like "cut
out dairy and it'll go" and "make sure
you're taking off all your make-up". Like
it could be solved so easily!
Can you talk us through your usual
morning routine?
I kick things off by reading a paper,
having a cup of tea (builders) and catching
up with my mum and grandparents on
FaceTime. Then I'd probably go for a
walk around Hyde Park. I love watching
the swimmers at the lido!

When you're in the middle of suffering
with a break-out, what is your go-to
product?
The Age Bright Clearing Serum: it's a
real game changer for me. I love that it
combats breakouts as well as looking
after premature ageing. Also, I think you
cannot fault a healthy diet most of the
time, a really rigid skincare routine you
believe in and love, and always drinking
loads of water.
