Selke Stojancic is a hair and makeup artist for Dutch celebrities Bridget Maasland, Vivienne van den Assem, and Dionne Stax. Selke has been using Witlof Skincare products for a while now, and we were curious to hear her opinion.
NATURAL SKINCARE IS BECOMING BIGGER AND SHIFTING FROM NICHE TO MAINSTREAM. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?
I'm very happy about it; I think it's a great development. In the past, we were unaware and used skincare products with ingredients we had no idea whether they were good for us or not. I am a strong advocate for pure and natural skincare. Just using natural ingredients, I believe that as we exist for longer, we are increasingly going back to nature.
WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? AND DO YOU HAVE ANY BEAUTY TIPS?
Well, for the past month and a half, my skincare routine has consisted of Witlof Skincare products. I start with the Cleansing Mousse, which I massage into my skin. Then I rinse it off with lukewarm water and use the Balancing Toner to restore the pH balance. After that, I apply a cream with sun protection factor, which I find very important. In the evening, I use the Serum, and if my skin is dry, I apply the cream on top of it. Oh, and I use the Peel twice a week.
Beauty tip? Since I turned 20, I have been drinking two liters of water per day and using sunscreen. As I get older, I am less afraid of a wrinkle. However, I do believe in taking care of your skin through good skincare, so that you already have a healthy and glowing complexion even before applying makeup.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE WITLOF PRODUCTS?
My favorite Witlof products... it's actually everything. They work together really well. I particularly love the mousse. But I also enjoy the Regenerating Oil Serum, Nourishing Cream, and Smoothing Peel. I honestly like everything.
DO YOU USE ANYTHING SPECIAL ON YOUR MODELS BEFORE THEY GO ON AIR OR FOR A PHOTO SHOOT?
Honestly, not much. The ladies often already have a day cream on, and I must say I am blessed with models who take good care of their skin, eat healthily, drink enough water, and use sunscreen. When you have a good skincare routine, you can already maximize the potential of your skin.
WHAT KIND OF NATURAL LOOK WOULD YOU RECOMMEND?
It starts with good skincare and having a good complexion. Then there are a few other things like a good concealer, nicely shaped eyebrows, a touch of mascara, and a bronzer for a healthy glow.
QUICK RESULTS OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT?
I prefer slow improvement but sustainable results.
RECYCLED PLASTIC PACKAGING OR GLASS PACKAGING?
I would prefer recycled plastic over glass. Glass is too heavy to carry in your travel bag, but that's more of a practical consideration. Real plastic is not acceptable anymore. However, sustainable plastic is okay.
