Aleysha Knowles: My beauty secrets

Aleysha Knowles

Aleysha Knowles (34), is a presenter on The Shopping Channel.

My beauty philosophy is… When it comes to makeup I keep it simple by day so I can justify a more dramatic look when I go out at night. My skincare is very much “prevention is better than cure”. I wear sunscreen even if going in the sun for five minutes.


The skincare products I can’t live without are…** I’m currently on Roaccutane because I have adult hormonal acne, so my regime is very simple: Cetaphil and Lucas’ Papaw Ointment.

My favorite product is the Bridget Black Rejuvenating Serum. It’s so easily absorbed and makes my skin feel amazing! I put it on morning and night under moisturiser.

My hair care secret is… Until high school my hair was so white it blended in with the fridge. Now I get highlights every six months and have been known to use talc to hide the ash blonde regrowth.

The must-have products in my makeup bag are… Lucas’ Pawpaw Ointment and mascara. I have the whitest eyelashes so tend never to be seen without mascara at least.

My favourite beauty treat is… I love facials. I’m not allowed to have any while on Roaccutane, so as soon as possible I will treat myself to a pampering facial.

My biggest beauty sin is… Not moisturising enough.

The best thing my mother taught me about beauty was… Mum always told me not to wear much makeup.
