A mum-of-two has shown off her newly glowing skin after struggling with stubborn pigmentation and dryness for more than eight years.
Emily, in her mid thirties, was also struggling with fine lines around her eyes, a dull skin tone and premature skin ageing and turned to Melbourne brand Liberty Belle to overhaul her regime.
The luxury company, founded by Real Housewives of Melbourne star and former journalist Andrea Moss and her facial plastic surgeon husband Dr Chris Moss, is known for using innovative and clinically-proven actives to treat concerns at their core.
Emily binned all her products and swapped them out for eight new ones and was handed a specific morning and evening routine which she’s followed for the past 16 months.

While pricier than your typical skincare, the products contain high grade active ingredients and are formulated without any pore clogging silicones, chemical UV filters, parabens, sulfates (SLS and SLES) or synthetic fragrances.
‘I was desperate to minimise the appearance of pigmentation on my forehead which has worsened throughout two pregnancies,’ Emily said.
‘I was very self conscious of it and always felt the need to wear foundation to cover it up. I was also aware of fine lines developing around my eyes and wanted to combat these too.’

When she started she was breastfeeding and found that her skin was extremely dry so she focused on hydration.
‘I started to notice results in the texture and hydration levels of my skin within a few days. I also felt that my skin definitely had much more of a ‘glow’ within those first few days and this has just improved more and more through continued use of the products,’ Emily said.
After two weeks she noticed the lines around her eyes begin to fade and her pigmentation started to improve.
‘I didn’t realise quite how much until I saw the before and after results. I have been able to transition to a much more lightweight foundation as I need far less coverage over my pigmentation,’ she said.
The seven ingredients you need in your skincare for brilliant results
Hyaluronic acid for hydration
What is it: Hyaluronic Acid is a natural marvel molecule known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. This water magnet is a sugar molecule that is naturally found in the body and is responsible for the skin’s plumpness and volume.
Panthenol to moisturise
What is it: Panthenol, also called Pro-Vitamin B5, is a naturally occurring alcohol that is quickly absorbed by the skin where it readily converts to Vitamin B5. This moisturising powerhouse is lauded for its ability as both a humectant (attracts water) and emollient (seals any cracks to keep the water locked in).
Vitamin C for brightening
What is it: Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid or L-ascorbic acid. This vitamin is not able to be produced by the body and therefore to maximise its skin benefit potential, it needs to be applied topically.
Retinol for skin renewal
What is it: Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and is a part of the retinoid family. Vitamin A increases the rate of the cell regeneration which essentially means Retinol can make skin cells in dull or older skin mimic the behaviour of younger, healthier cells to help refresh the complexion and fight the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
AHAs for exfoliation
What is it: AHA stands for alpha-hydroxy acids and refers to a group of water-soluble acids made from sugary fruits known for their exfoliating properties. AHAs work on the outer layer of the skin’s surface by loosening the bond between dead skin cells to help reveal radiant skin beneath.
Niacinamide for skin barrier support and balance
What is it: Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 and is celebrated for its multitasking nature. Niacinamide essentially works by encouraging the skin’s cells to behave in a more efficient manner, mimicking younger, healthier cells.
Squalane to nourish
What is it: Squalane is an excellent emollient derived from olives and known for its ability to maintain the skin’s moisture barrier and hydration by sealing it with a strong lipid. Including squalane in your skincare can help offset the natural decline in your body’s squalene levels as you age which will help to keep your skin more moisturised and looking more youthful. This vitamin rich, deeply nourishing ingredient is neither heavy or occlusive on this skin.

‘I have also found myself going without makeup all the time as I have had such increased confidence in the appearance of my skin.
Emily’s overall skin appearance was more even and refined and she’s constantly flooded with compliments from family and friends about how ‘glowy’ her skin always looks.
