The Bachelor star Laura Byrne has shown off her incredible before and after skin transformation, and revealed how she healed her pigmentation and melasma after it worsened following the birth of her two daughters.
The 37-year-old mum-of-two confessed she had tried a ‘myriad of creams and in salon treatments at great cost and with significant down time’ and no results when she stumbled upon the ‘life-changing’ prescription skincare range The Secret.
Run by skin clinic owner Dr Clara Hurst and GP Dr Deb Cohen-Jones, the premise of The Secret is providing ‘highly effective solutions’ for cosmetic skin conditions like acne, rosacea, fine lines, skin laxity and pigmentation.

Laura ordered the Cellular Repair Night Cream ($200), the Day Brightening Elixir ($200) and Brightening Day Eye Serum ($200) in a bid to heal her skin and target early signs of ageing.
Dr Deb said of Laura: ‘Our patient Laura approached us looking to improve the pigmentation and melasma on her forehead, cheeks and chin which had worsened following the birth of her two beautiful children.
‘She was also looking to improve the overall health of her skin while combatting signs of ageing.’
Dr Deb said: ‘When she used our customised treatments the results were exactly what she had been looking for and she was finally able to achieve the flawless, glowing complexion she desired’.
Skin pigmentation and melasma issues are common after childbirth, thanks to high levels of pregnancy hormones in your body.
These decrease after giving birth, but sometimes never go away.

The three products Laura relied on were the Cellular Repair Night Cream, which uses prescription-strength ingredients to encourage the skin’s natural rejuvenation process and create healthy skin cells.
She also used the Day Brightening Elixir, which uses intensive brightening agents, which ‘work to inhibit the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin’ and ‘encourage cell regeneration, triggering the skin to heal itself and accelerate the production of collagen and elastin’.
The final product Laura tried was the Brightening Day Eye Serum, which was ‘designed to be used as your morning pick me up, depuffing, brightening and hydrating the eye contour’.
Her before and after pictures show just how effective the trio of items was for Laura’s skin after just three months.
‘Wow, what an effect,’ one person commented underneath the photos.
‘The results are incredible,’ another person added.
The Cellular Repair Night Cream ($200) is one of the most popular in the range thanks to its powerhouse ingredient list (results pictured after use)
Laura is one of many who have shared drastic results after using the range, which continues to wow customers with powerful custom-made products tailored to their specific concerns (before and after pictured)

Over time the cream creates healthy skin cells using a prescription-strength retinoid to encourage the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.
The rapid cell turnover leads to dead and damaged skin cells being removed from the skin’s surface and subsequentially replaced by younger, healthier skin cells from underneath.
Speaking to FEMAIL previously, the founders shared how they use their own products and lifestyle tweaks to keep their enviable skin in peak condition all year round.
Many have shared their before and after pictures on Instagram, showcasing their incredible results (pictured)
How does Dr Clara Hurst look after her skin?
– Medik8 Oil Cleanser ($52)
– The Essentials Set from The Secret Skincare ($500): A day cream, night cream and eye treatment based on your own needs
– Tinted Mesoestetic sunscreen ($89)
– I let my skin breathe throughout the week and leave makeup for special occasions
– I am big on supporting the skin from the inside out, so I incorporate the By Beth Collagen ($150) into a smoothie most mornings
Dr Clara told FEMAIL she keeps it ‘super simple’ and admits it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the products, fads and treatments in the beauty industry.
She describes her approach as ‘very minimalist and science-based’ and opts for products and brands she trusts instead of a ’10-step skincare routine’.
‘Over time I’ve found (and developed!) my own hero products that have allowed me to strip back my beauty routine,’ she said.
‘When it comes to beauty I’ve always loved that effortless and ‘untouched’ look, not only in my approach to injectables, but in my personal style.’
Every day Dr Clara relies on a Medik8 Oil Cleanser, followed by The Secret Essentials Set and a tinted Mesoestetic sunscreen.
‘Because I’ve invested heavily in the health of my skin, I have the luxury letting it breathe throughout the week and leaving makeup for special occasions,’ she said.
‘You can’t imagine how much time this saves!’
She also makes sure to support her skin from the inside out and uses By Beth Collagen in a smoothie every morning.

– I take Vitamin D supplements, collagen and apply Secret Stress Repair to red/spotty areas if needed

Dr Deb told FEMAIL in addition to a regular skincare routine she makes sure she is always well hydrated and tries to avoid too much alcohol.
She is also lactose and dairy-free, eats minimal sugar and is an advocate for wholegrains, whole goods, greens, collagen and Vitamin D supplements.
Every morning Dr Deb starts off with a Tatcha Cleansing Oil followed by The Secret Serum, Eye Serum and Day Brightening Elixir (alternating between sensitive and regular).
She also uses the Rationale 50+ Tinted Serum and Ultra Violette suncreen as well as the Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask two to three days per week.
At night she uses the Medik8 Lipid Balancing Cleanser, The Secret Cellular Repair Night Cream and the Cellular Repair Night Eye Cream.
Every third night she uses a Tatcha Face Oil and every second night she uses an Omnilux LED mask before her Cellular Repair.
In summer she uses an extra pump of serum, reapplies sunscreen if needed and uses Cellular Repair more often due to increased pigmentation
‘The goal when creating The Secret has always been a flawless complexion without any makeup,’ she said.
‘My skin has never looked better than it does with my current regime and my regime literally takes three minutes.’
