From makeup to skincare essentials, it’s safe to say we trust the advice of supermodels like Victoria Secret Angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. One of her skincare secrets is visiting facialist Biba, an LA-based aesthetician who she claims truly changed her skin.

“I’ve always struggled with a little bit of acne and breakouts and congested skin,” Huntington-Whiteley said. “I use two different moisturisers, one for the morning and one for the evening; the one in the morning that I apply is the Biba Daily Moisturizer. It’s a really lightweight moisturiser that leaves skin really hydrated and perfectly prepped for your make-up.” And in her evening skincare routine, she uses Biba’s Cream Barrier, which is a “little bit thicker” and “really hydrating." “I’ve seen a massive difference in my skin texture and appearance,” she said.

We chatted with skincare expert and celebrity esthetician, Biba de Sousa, herself to learn more about Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s glowing skin.

Question: When did you first start working with Rosie? Tell us a little bit about your relationship with her. 

Biba: I met Rosie about two years ago. Since she has acne prone skin she is very educated and selective about skincare and treatments. Because of my experience, knowledge and approach to treatment of Acne, I was a good fit for her. 

Question: What products do you use on Rosie’s skin? 

Biba: Her favorites are the Hydrating Moisturizing Gel and the Daily Moisturizer for day, and the Cream Barrier at night. She is also a fan of the Zinc and Sulfur Mask and Lip Treatment.

Question: Rosie is known for being a sophisticated skincare connoisseur. In the past 2 years while working with Rosie, what is the best skincare advice you gave her? 

Biba: I shared that one of the best ways to control acne is to stop using products that contain comedogenic ingredients (pore cloggers/skin irritants). These are rampant in makeup, shampoos, and skincare products.
