“Seems simple but the impact and visible results from using vitamin A are enormous as it reduces pigmentation, fine lines and breakouts while revealing fresh, dewy, radiant, glowing skin – and we know hydrated, radiant skin always looks youthful,” says Petroni.
What you might not know is that Petroni is equally adept at nails – appointed CHANEL’s official nail expert in Australia in 2015. Go to her the highest-calibre manicure, knowledge beyond compare, a second-to-none team and the latest season CHANEL Le Vernis nail shades before they even hit counters.
Using retinol requires acclimatisation and it’s important to start off slowly and work your way up. A good starting point is a pea-sized amount of a low percentage – around .01-.03%, once or twice a week. From there you can customise your strength and work your way up to a higher dose or frequency – with prescription formulas the strongest on the market.
Ah… you sure can’t beat a generous spritz of face mist over your complexion after basking in the sun on a hot day. One of Australia’s leading facialist’s, Jocelyn Petroni, agrees with us 100 per cent. “A refreshing, cooling, hydrating facial mist is the perfect summer’s day beauty trick,” she says. “Not only does it hydrate the skin and add that dewy glow, it also feels amazing and cooling on the skin after a day in the sun.” Amen to that.
Jocelyn Petroni: In summer, the skin and the body become more dehydrated as the body temperature rises and the metabolic processes increase. This means your skin is metabolising faster and it needs ample water to function at its best. We sweat more in the summer months too, so we need to replenish this water loss consistently.
Azelaic acid is a pigment-inhibiting ingredient so it’s excellent for the management of dark spots and all pigmentary concerns. It also has the additional benefit of powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which prevent acne breakouts. In saying this, it is also much milder than other acids therefore it won’t aggravate or irritate sensitive rosacea skins.
Nature-inspired nail colours are the key trend this spring and summer. “Warm sunbeam tones, from sand and tan, to cream, clay and coffee browns, as well as coral, are big,” explains nail expert Jocelyn Petroni. “But if you prefer something moodier, don’t be afraid of using darker shades that are usually reserved for the cooler months.”
Jocelyn Petroni’s skin signature is a dewy, luminous complexion. But what sets this expert’s practice apart is her serene demeanour that touches every detail of her airy, light-filled Sydney salon.
“I want women to feel beautiful and enveloped in love when they walk out,” she says. And that, they do. However, instead of walking, they float on a cloud
