What I Put On My Face is Mamamia’s new celebrity beauty series that goes inside the beauty cabinets of some of Australia’s most influential women. From what skincare products they use to their go-to makeup tips, it’s a pervy look at exactly what they put on their face. And body. And hair. You get the idea.
This week, we speak to Kate Ritchie. The radio host, actor and Jockey ambassador shares her secret weapon for prepping her skin while she’s in the hair and makeup chair, and the simplified beauty routine she’s got down to a tee for busy mornings with daughter Mae. Plus, she talks about how her relationship with her body has changed for the better since becoming a mum. Enjoy!
Side note: Co-host of our You Beauty podcast, Kelly McCarren, talks us through every product she used on her wedding day. Post continues below audio.
Kate Ritchie’s skincare routine.
I was lucky to be blessed with good skin generally, which I am thankful for because as we know problematic skin can really affect your overall confidence. I had plenty of pimples during my teens but nothing I didn’t grow out of.
The hormones that come with pregnancy also changed my skin but that also passed… except I still have a few lines that are born from all those sleepless nights! My concerns now are increased pigmentation which I of course blame on ageing and twenty years spent in sunny Summer Bay!
Like so many things in my life I now value simplicity when it comes to my skincare. I need it to be streamlined and easy to use. If I have a cluttered bathroom vanity of bottles and tubs with complex instructions and 5 steps to achieve the desired effect then no doubt I will end up doing none!
