Beauty / IN THE BAG

Photographer and RUSSH Contributing Editor, Kitty Callaghan, shares her best in beauty

She’s one of our own. The Sydney-based multi-hyphenate splits her time between home and Paris, and on any given day can be found on set, in store or at home creating. Here she shares all she values when it comes to beauty.

My morning beauty routine is …
Cleanse, sometimes microfoliate, sometimes a hydrating mask from Dermalogica. Depends on my skin at the time. And always a tea.

My night beauty routine is …
Same as the above … mostly. I also love an intensive moisturiser before sleep – this one is great.

My favourite products for body are …
Being a redhead, sunscreen is naturally always a favourite. Dermalogica does a great one for face and also one for body. And I love body oils to keep my skin hydrated – there’s one from The Ayu that I love.

My favourite form of exercise is …
Swimming.

When my body needs to recover I …
Take a rest, from everything.

My favourite detox is …
A face mask, a swim and sleep. And no technology.

My favourite retox is …
An Irish coffee or an espresso martini.

When it comes to beauty I always …
Be sure to cleanse and moisturise.

My beauty icon is …
Catherine Hepburn, Lee Radziwill, Vanessa Paradis.

The best advice on beauty I’ve received is …
Less is more. And sunscreen everyday.

The best health advice I’ve received is …
Listerine twice daily for germs. And I love apple cider vinegar (although the jury is out on the benefits…)

The product I can’t live without is …
Dermalogica Gentle Cream exfoliant. And my friend gave me a soothing body oil from Venustus in Paddington that I love putting on my wrists and neck as a ritual before bed.
