Beauty Blogger Em Ford Reveals Her Skincare Secrets

And reveals the new light therapy mask that can battle acne at-home

Beauty Blogger Em Ford (aka My Pale Skin) skyrocketed into the spotlight after sharing her journey with acne on her YouTube channel with the viral video: You Look Disgusting. Fast-forward two years and My Pale Skin has over one million followers on instagram and 975,000 YouTube subscribers. We chatted to Em about how she deals with social media, confidence and (of course) her skin…

Beauty Blogger Em Ford’s Daily Routine

AM: ‘I cleanse with Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Wash [£4.99], then apply Ole Henriksen Truth Serum [£47] and finally I use Pixi Nourishing Sleep Mask [£18] as a moisturiser.’
PM:‘First I use RMK Moist Cleansing Balm [£29] to remove my make-up. Then I cleanse with Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Daily Wash [£4.99] and after a quick swipe of Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Proofing Purifying Toner [£4.99], on a large cotton pad, I finish with the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Treatment [£42].’

Tips For People Struggling With Confidence

‘Sometimes it can be tough working in the beauty industry where perfection is so highly sought after. I think you have to try to make friends with the person you see in the mirror. It may not be easy – but the moment you start to accept yourself – incredible things can happen.’

The Best Acne Treatment Out There

‘I’ve personally never taken medication for my acne, and I’ve found that the right combination of products has worked to help clear my skin. I think the Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Light Therapy Mask, £59.99 is a great innovation to help make light therapy, which has always been a costly treatment option, accessible to so many people. It uses red & blue LED lights to fight against the acne cycle and help keep your skin looking clear. I keep mine on my bedside table and wear it for 10 minutes every night.’

How To Cover Spots And Scarring

‘I’m a big fan of pinpoint correcting, which is using a lightweight foundation or BB cream, then using a heavyweight concealer like Kryolan Dermacolour [£8.50] – my ultimate concealer for covering breakouts. For under my eyes, I love Make Up Forever Ultra HD Concealer [£20] and recently Tarte Shape Contour Concealer [£28].’
