When you curate, what determines that it makes the Coucou Cut?
For me it’s all about liability of the product. Ingredients are key. What are the ingredients and how high is the concentration? Be aware that whatever you apply to your skin, will end up in your bloodstream.
What is your best skincare advice?
My number 1 skincare advice is cleansing because oil, dirt and make-up can clog your pores. No matter in which state I am, I always cleanse my face before going to sleep. I even strongly advice to double cleanse: Start with an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based cleanser.
