Plant Gold is the newest instalment from the brand which has long heralded the benefits of botanicals. Some 60 years ago, Clarins founder Jacques Courtin-Clarins, coined the term ‘aromaphytocare’. Put simply, it describes the skincare company’s dedication to plant extracts and their essential oils – many of which can’t be replicated synthetically – and are known to impact our overall wellbeing thanks to their calming aroma.
Jocelyn Petroni and John Clarkson happened to be introduced by our very own editor-in-chief. “We were introduced by our dear friends Edwina McCann and David Basha,” shares Jocelyn. “The four of us went out to dinner and I was incredibly nervous. Johnny was his usual talkative and hilarious self and I instantly fell in love with his smiling eyes.”
Blue light refers to the high-energy wavelengths that sit on the blue end of the visible light spectrum. Much of the blue light we’re exposed to comes from the sun, however it’s also emitted by LEDs — such as those found in our phones, TVs and laptops. According to recent research, Australians are spending more than one- third of their day in front of these devices.
If you’re not ready to explore a ive ingredients or end signi cant time on skin prep, art by washing o the day – always. “Cleanser removes debris and residue from the skin’s surface. It also stimulates natural shedding to reveal fresh, radiant skin cells,” explains Petroni.

“In summer, your skin is metabolising faster and it needs lots of water to function at it’s best. This means it’s easier for it to become dehydrated,” says skin expert Jocelyn Petroni. Her advice is to use more oils (they’ll help skin retain moisture), add hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to your regimen and, of course, drink more water. If a quick fix is what you’re after, keep a mist in your handbag. “a mist can work wonders for a light hydration throughout the day so skin appears more dewy, as well as to resent make-up,” says Petroni.
“The therapists in our salon actually wear face masks when performing treatments … to ensure the therapists can breathe at their own pace and leisure, otherwise you tend to hold your breath … We breath from our belly not from the rib cage, slowly, calmly, consciously which slows, calms and focuses the mind. This helps get the client into that transcending, meditative state.”

In the self-care era, indulging in the occasional beauty treatment is not only encouraged, it’s celebrated. But as we enter 2020, we want our skincare and makeup regimens to not just beautify ourselves, but our environment too. Guilt-free indulgence is the goal.
And while nail salons have traditionally been the domain of eye-watering chemicals, there’s a new nail trend aiming to change how we treat our hands and, in turn, our planet. Enter: the ‘clean manicure’.
Party season prep almost always includes a fresh mani-pedi. “Bright toes against glowing legs looks heavenly!” says manicurist Jocelyn Petroni, who suggests selecting different shades for your fingers and toes. “Matchy- matchy polish can look dated.”
