Case study: how to get that red carpet glow

Renée Zellwegger’s glowing complexion at the recent BAFTA Awards in London was not just the result of multiple best actress wins for her portrayal of Judy Garland in ‘Judy’, but due in large part to performance-driven skincare.

Zellwegger’s trusted make-up artist and skin-care specialist, Dana Hamel, who has worked with the star for years, chose a collagen-focused regimen from high-end German skincare brand, QMS Medicosmetics, to recreate youthful and glowing red carpet skin.

Recognising collagen’s ability to improve skin suppleness in post-surgery scarring, trauma specialist and QMS founder, Dr med. Erich Schulte, created an innovative collagen and hyaluronic acid complex, Neotec A15®, to restore the skin. Collagen forms the core of all QMS protocols, to reinstate skin’s youthful suppleness.

Some of the key products used in Zellwegger’s red-carpet prep include: Hydro Foam Mask, an intensely hydrating and soothing micro foam mask. It is formulated with restorative proteins, revitalising vitamins and soothing botanical oils to hydrate and calm the skin.

Hamel also used QMS Active Exfoliant, an exfoliating fluid with 11% AHAs and a pH 3.5. This exfoliant has a gentle peeling effect that refines and optimises the skin for application of the Day Collagen and Night Collagen, resulting in bright, smooth skin that is full of vitality.

Day Collagen is an advanced day serum developed to hydrate, protect and help strengthen the skin’s defences against free radicals. It is formulated with advanced Neotec a15® collagen technology, hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl 3000®.
