Good skin starts with a good skincare routine. 

Just ask some of TV's best and brightest women in recent years, Justine Schofield, Selina Chhaur and Sarah Di Lorenzo. 

In our busy lives, it's easy to ignore the little things before dashing off for the day but for Schofield, Chhaur and Di Lorenzo, it's not only important to implement some good ol' TLC into the skin, but necessary for being in front of the camera. 

As such, it is fun to have a peek into other people's skincare drawers, and especially a peek into the world of those we remember watching on TV — whether that's on MasterChef as the bubbly chef, Married At First Sight as the lovable bride, or in the wee hours of the morning on Sunrise as the resident nutritionist. 

Why? Well, because skincare can be a lil'... complicated. So many options. So many steps to remember. Much too many. 

But as it turns out, sometimes you only need a little bit of guidance from the women who have learned from the best on how to keep their skin plump, healthy and glowing.... and it's not nearly as difficult as one might think.

Below, Schofield, Chhaur and Di Lorenzo share what they put on their face and their recommendations for looking more 'put together' on a moment's notice.

Selina Chhaur, MAFS

Around four or five years ago, Selina Chhaur, the memorable and bubbly MAFS bride from season 9, had a sudden realisation: skincare was the cornerstone to a lifetime of healthy-looking skin. 

"I realised how important it was to have a proper regime and routine," she tells Mamamia. "I started looking into skincare a little bit more and what exactly would do what for my skin."

So she got a tiny cosmetics fridge to sit atop her bathroom counter and never looked back. 

At 33 years old, Chhaur wants gentle, nourishing skincare that does exactly what it's supposed to and found that in the NIVEA Q10 range. 


"What I love about NIVEA is that you can really see the difference to your skin in a short time if you're consistent," she explains, adding that being in front of the camera means constant lights and a lot of makeup, so she values hydrating skincare that makes her look refreshed... even if that's not quite how she is feeling. 

"The Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream is a product that has made such a difference to how my under-eye area appears on camera. Like, truly. You know the loose pink powder that everyone uses for a brightening effect? I feel like this is the skincare version of that, really."

The product promises to reduce fine lines and dark circles — including the ingredient creatine to boost the skin's firmness and Q10, a co-enzyme that our skin naturally produces.

And for Chhaur, this product has been a game-changer in Sydney heat. 

"It's been freaking amazing, improving some puffiness around my eyes," she says. "Since moving to Sydney, the cost-of-living is ridiculous so I don't have the spare money to spend on treatments. This cream has genuinely made all the difference."

Being on TV, with millions of people tuning in to watch her *dramatic* love story unfold, not only made her an adored public figure but helped her to realise the importance of embracing her own identity. 

"With what I went through on the show, I started to realise how proud I am of my Chinese and Cambodian culture and nationality. Why am I wearing blue contacts? Why am I bleaching my hair blonde and putting it through all of this torture? It's a complicated thing, but it just made me realise I am beautiful and I am comfortable in my own skin."


Justine Schofield, Everyday Gourmet

Schofield became a widely adored chef in the first season of MasterChef Australia back in 2009. Having filmed the daytime cooking show Everyday Gourmet since 2011, she's travelled wide and far — and all in front of a camera — to serve up the world's best local flavours. 

The constant travelling combined with an intense filming schedule and heavy makeup under the camera's lights can all really take its toll.

"With filming, your skin really takes a beating," she explains. "It's quite intense and a lot of makeup and my skin really does get affected by this so my nighttime routine is really important for getting the day off and nourishing my skin."

First, she starts with a good pack of sensitive wipes to remove all of her makeup, then a nourishing face wash and finally the NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Replenishing Night Cream to deeply nourish her skin. 

The formula visibly firms the skin and targets the appearance of fine lines in seven days, promising to help replenish the appearance of some elasticity and bounce. 

Oh — and it's also compatible with all skin types, including sensitive skin like Schofield's.


"I have pimply, sensitive skin," she explains. "So skincare formulated to not make my skin feel inflamed, overly dry or irritated is non-negotiable." 

The chef and author adds how important it is to feel valuable, beautiful and comfortable in our skin. 

"There's a massive expectation to look a certain way," she says. "We all get drawn to it but it's all about embracing who you are as a person."

Sarah Di Lorenzo, Sunrise

For bestselling author and resident clinical nutritionist on Sunrise Sarah Di Lorenzo, good skin starts within. 

"It's the largest organ of the body so it does come down to giving the skin what it needs so it can be beautiful and glowing," she tells Mamamia. "I do really strongly believe healthy skin starts from within the body and topical skincare helps to nourish and protect the outside of the body."

Her mornings — whether she is prepping for a day of filming or not — are simple, but her routine is non-negotiable. Di Lorenzo starts by making her bed so it is her first accomplishment of the day, a big glass of water for hydration and then washing her face.

Before a nutritious breakfast, she might use a face mask to give her face some TLC. What comes soon after is the NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Expert Targeted Wrinkle Filler Serum — a must-have for your skincare arsenal for a quick way to look more 'put together', Di Lorenzo says.

"In the morning, I am puffy around the eyes and I can get dark circles too so this serum works wonderfully to firm and hydrate that. But even after the first time I used it, I noticed in some fine lines in five minutes like the product says!" she explains. 


"I do appreciate my crow's feet because it shows character but I even find the serum works to reduce all lines around the eyes. I even love the texture because it doesn't feel like I have so much stuff on my face," she adds. "It really, really works."

Being a busy mum of three and on the precipice of releasing another highly anticipated book, Di Lorenzo doesn't have time to waste.

"It's so important to work with and implement the products that work. This one does."
