The 48-year-old mother-of-four said she can’t get enough of the advice from her A-list facialist friend Melanie Grant, from Sydney, and for this reason she wants her new book, The Modern Guide to Skin Health ($39.95), this Christmas.
‘I think Melanie is one of the best facialists in the business,’ Victoria told the Evening Standard.
‘I recommend her skin advice to all of my friends and family.’

Cutting through the industry jargon and hype, Melanie expertly distills how you can achieve a glowing complexion using effective everyday products and simple regimes.
She talks about what to eat and drink for good skin, as well as what to use and what to avoid when it comes to ingredients.

The five steps to glowing skin
* Wear sunscreen every single day
* Drink plenty of water
* Eat a colorful, anti-inflammatory diet filled with fish, greens, seeds and nuts
* Get regular sleep, at least seven hours, and avoid stress
* Keep your skincare regime simple
Previously, the celebrity facialist and esthetician behind the fresh-faced complexions of some of the world’s richest and most famous has shared her five steps to glowing skin – and the products she can’t live without.
‘[The most important thing] is you wear sunscreen each and every day over the top of an antioxidant serum to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and free radicals,’ Melanie told Mode by CRK.
On top of this, plenty of water and a ‘colorful, anti-inflammatory diet’ is key.
Speaking about the foods you should increase in your diet for great skin, Melanie said ‘plenty of fish, greens, seeds and nuts’ are the answer to a dewy complexion.
‘Get regular sleep, at least seven hours, and avoid stress,’ she added.
‘Incorporate a simple, purposeful skincare regime to maintain your skin,’ she said.
Melanie favours a vitamin C serum during the day and a retinol serum at night, as well as a great moisturiser and gentle exfoliant.
‘Too many steps or products will over-complicate it, resulting in a lack of consistency and sensitised or reactive skin,’ she said.
Regarding the products the Sydney-based facialist swears by, Melanie said you can’t go wrong with the Augustinus Bader range (pictured with Victoria Beckham at the Bader launch)
Regarding the products the Sydney-based facialist swears by, Melanie said you can’t go wrong with the Augustinus Bader range.
While pricey, she said both ‘the cream’ and ‘the rich cream’ work in delivering intense hydration.
They both also work to prevent the signs of ageing.
Elsewhere, Melanie uses Chanel’s Le Lift for its great texture, the Biologique Recherche Le Grande Creme and Vintners Daughter to keep her own skin looking its plump best.
