The Close-Up with Dr Marwa Ali
What’s in the mirror?
I see an independent, determined and hardworking woman who has come a long way to achieve her dreams.
My skin. Over the last few years I have been on a journey to discover the best medical treatments and skincare to protect the skin and prevent it from ageing. As the International Obagi Skinclusion Ambassador I am a huge advocate of using medical grade skincare for optimal results.
Treatment you swear by?
The Gala Glow medical facial, which is exclusive to The Wellness Clinic in Harrods. It uses the latest HIFU technology (Ultracel Q+) to deliver the fastest, pain-free ultrasound in the world to lift, tighten and brighten your skin.
When do you feel at your best?
When I spend quality time with my nearest and dearest, particularly my son Ahmed.
Top beauty tip?
Vitamin C is the perfect product to stimulate collagen production, protect your skin from the sun, even out your skin-tone and give your skin a glow. I am in love with the Obagi Professional-C 20% serum.
Winged eyeliner. I love wearing eyeliner as it makes me feel glamorous and powerful no matter where I go or what I’m wearing.
Desert island must-haves? SPF. I love Shiseido Expert Sun Aging Protection Lotion Plus SPF50+ because it is not greasy and provides the perfect base for my makeup.
Growing up I had a cookie cutter image of what beauty was. However, over time, I have come to realise that our individuality and differences are what make us unique and that is the definition of beauty.
Clé de Peau Beauté foundation is light and breathable, yet provides good coverage and flawless looking skin.
