Celebrity facialist Lord Gavin McLeod-Valentine jetted into Sydney recently to launch Intraceuticals new range of face serums. He chats about his A-list black book that includes Kim Kardashian-West and Michelle Williams and the power of beauty.

My beauty mantra is…
“You can lift it. you can fill it, you can fry it, but if you don’t address hydration within the skin you are never going to look younger.”

Home to me is…
“New York, my home for the past 15 years always serves as a place for energetic stimulation. But at home in Scotland, up in the highlands, the active world of nature and stillness of thought inspires me beyond compare.”

My most memorable career milestone is…
“Treating Allison Janney and Olivia Colman for their Oscar wins. To play a part in their career defining day, is a thrill and honour that I take incredibly seriously.”

My favourite place for inspiration…
“I am inspired by the different cultures and cities that I am fortunate to travel through to promote Intraceuticals and treat my lovely clients.”

I am inspired by…
“My 99-year-old grandmother and my mother and father who always made me believe anything is possible.”

The biggest lesson I have learnt…
“The universe has a way of putting us exactly where we are meant to be. There have been moments when I wished for something to happen, thinking it would be the best thing for me. When it didn’t happen as thought I was devastated. But I wouldn’t be living my best life today, surrounded by those I love and thriving in my career if that initial desire had come to fruition.”

The celebrity that sums up beauty to me is…
“Susan Sarandon. She is passionate, intelligent, informed about the world around her and an advocate for personal empowerment. Not to mention her ageless timeless beauty.”

I can’t live without…
“Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Daily Serum and Retouch Eye, Highlight and Lift Serums for my skin and my Hermes Birkin Bag for all my treatment products.”
