Meet the master of skincare

Every woman, and man for that matter, has their favourite skincare brand. For a lot that's Ole Henriksen, whose Truth Serum Collagen Booster is a universally loved product.

Founded by Danish skin guru Ole Henriksen, the company now counts the likes of Ellen DeGeneres, Kylie Minogue and Charlize Theron as fans, with Sir Elton John and Mark Wahlberg also on his A-list roster. But you don't have to be rich and famous to achieve his famous "Ole Glow". 

"Skin care is about creating balance in the skin and bringing out the beauty in the skin. We call it the Ole Glow," Ole beamed to Cover Media.

"We also very much focus on wellness, as far as that I always say, at the end of the day what matters to me more than anything, is that a woman feels confident and good about herself. A happy face is a beautiful face - a smile that comes from the heart is unparalleled. Young and beautiful, it's just captivating. And the beauty is that your mum and grandma look just as beautiful when they are lovers of life."

Other cult favourites from Ole's namesake brand include Power Peel, African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and Sheer Transformation.

His LA-based spa is the go-to place for Hollywood's elite come awards season, with the most popular treatment for the stars the Microdermabrasion Resurfacing Power Peel, the Detoxifying Spa Ritual and the 8-step Purifying Complexion Treatment for the face.

Ole puts the success of his products down to the natural ingredients sourced. 

"Ingredients come from Mother Nature; milk, sugar, grapefruit, orange. So it's the balance that matters. I always say look in the mirror and follow the progress with your skin. If you see continued improvement from the products you use, you know you're using something right. At the same time if suddenly you do it and you see redness and irritation, you know you're doing something wrong. So the mirror should always be your best friend," he advised.

Ole's natural approach is also reflected in his "less is more" motto.

"Just like with good exercise, you don't have to work your little butt off for an hour and a half every day. But doing it consistently will maintain that lean and strong body. But it's all a balance," he smiled.
