SkinCeuticals Takeover: Video Q&A

This month, we’re all about looking after our skin the very best way, and understanding which key ingredients and properties we should be looking at. To get a much more professional and expert view on this, we teamed up last night with Nicole Akers – AVP Education & Development at SkinCeuticals – for our very own exclusive video Q&A on Facebook.


As SkinCeuticals are the leaders in skincare, we invited Nicole to join us on Facebook and answer 10 questions from our social followers. She kindly answered each question, providing a personal, dedicated response via exclusive video clips.

In case you missed the video Q&A, we’ve shared five of our personal favorite questions and answers below, along with products recommended by Nicole, so you can catch up on the evening’s discussions!

Firstly, a little bit of an introduction to Nicole.

Q2. What would you recommend to eliminate dark under eye circles? – Lisa McFarland, via Facebook
