Meghan Markle's facialist shares her simple three-step skincare routine for brides

Nichola Joss, who has numerous celebrity clients, has revealed a three-step skincare routine that she advises for bride-to-be, so everyone can feel like a princess when they tie the knot.

London-based Nichola recommends brides double cleanse and massage their faces every single day in the run-up to the wedding.

She said you should avoid using new products or treatments four weeks before the big day, so should establish new routines early on.

On the day itself, Nichola gives all brides a £50 mask by Decléor to ensure their skin is glowing.

It is the Decléor's Prolagène Lift Contouring Lift Firm Mask, which is an anti-ageing, one-minute mask that aims to create radiant and firm skin.

Speaking to Femail, she said: “What a gentle facial will do is encourage good facial contours, get rid of any puffiness, keep the lights of the eyes nice and sparkly.”

The skincare professional also advised that brides stay clear of any aggressive or invasive treatments close to the wedding, such as injectables.

She added: “You definitely want to be very gentle on your skin. Massage your skin every day, to remove any tensions and stress.”


  • After waking up, cleanse the skin to remove puffiness and then use a toner and your serums
  • After coming home in the evening, immediately double cleanse the skin and add serums to work through the evening
  • Before bed, massage your face with oil to release tension

Just cleansing once is not enough for Nichola, who says this is the biggest mistake she sees ladies making.

She said: "Double cleansing is super important. It is also really essential to use a toner."

In the past, Nichola has advised that fake tanning your face can clog up your pores.

She said: “For those who wear self-tan regularly, I’d say it’s really important to maintain a weekly exfoliation, in addition to daily cleansing and moisturising, to keep the tan looking even and the skin glowing.

"This will also keep the skin clear."


Nichola also rates skin supplements – and recommends anti-ageing pill Lumity for skin health and hair thickness.

She added: "I have more energy, I am sleeping better and feel rejuvenated upon waking."

Everyone from J-Lo to Gisele Bundchen, Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, Millie Mackintosh and Gwyneth Paltrow are fans of the beautician's facials.

One this is for sure, if it is good enough for Meghan Markle, it is good enough for us.

Meanwhile, this is the £30 Decleor facial all the models are getting for London Fashion Week.
