Beauty Q&A with Peter Thomas Roth
Profile picked the brains of beauty guru Peter Thomas Roth of his eponymous skincare and beauty label
What is luxury to you?
Luxury to me is relaxing at home and treating my skin to an amazing face mask. I’m a mask-a-holic and so are many of my customers. Right now, I’m loving my Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask. It’s rich and luxurious and has mineral-rich thermal water from a secret spring in Hungary’s Carpathian Valley. Leave the mask on for a few minutes, then massage it into your skin with cool water for an invigorating flash of heat that opens pores and optimises nutrient absorption. You’ll love how smooth, healthy and youthful your skin looks afterwards.

Is it possible to achieve a luxurious beauty regime on a tight budget? If so, how?
Having a luxurious beauty regimen is possible on a tight budget if you invest in really effective, multi-action products.
I also love kits that include multiple products—such a great way to get value in skin care on a tight budget.
When shopping for skin care products on a tight budget, you should also look closely at labels, because the most expensive products may not necessarily include the most luxurious, high-quality ingredients. I always choose the most effective ingredients at the highest level possible for my products and don’t believe in sprinkling ingredients — if an ingredient is on my label, it’s at an amount that makes a meaningful difference. I include the percentage of active ingredients on all my products so you know what you’re getting, and you know it delivers astonishing results.
Should we follow beauty trends? Or should we stick to a consistent routine?
When it comes to skin care, I think the most important thing is sticking to a consistent routine. The ideal skin care regimen depends on your skin type and concerns, but I love a good cleanser, mask, treatment serum and moisturiser. You can shake things up every now and then, though. Do your research and determine which skin care trends are worthwhile, because the latest cutting-edge ingredients could benefit your skin and give you great results.
What is your number one beauty tip?
The most important thing is to keep your skin clean and hydrated. My Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel is perfect because it combines exfoliating Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid with brightening botanicals to provide a deep clean. To lock in moisture, try my Water Drench® Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer. The lightweight formula absorbs quickly and provides up to 72 hours of hydration

What beauty product should every woman have?
Eye cream. Your eye area is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing, so treat the delicate skin around your eyes with care. A fantastic eye cream can awaken your eyes and make your entire face look younger.
What products should we invest our money in?
The skin care products you invest in should actually work. Purchase products that have ingredients at effective concentrations. From day one of Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care, I made it my mission to choose the most effective ingredients at the highest level possible for each of my products. Because before I started my own skin care line, I had acne and skin issues and nothing ever worked for me. What I hear from my customers time and again is that they love my products because they work. To me, that is priceless.
