Jennifer Aniston's facialist Mila Moursi gives her top skincare tips

Hollywood facialist Mila Moursi is known for tending to the skin of some of the biggest stars in the world, including Jennifer Aniston - who once dubbed Mila a 'skincare miracle worker' - Sandra Bullock and Courteney Cox.

So we were delighted to chat to the aesthetician about exactly how she looks after her skin, including her golden skincare rules, best diet advice for a healthy complexion and the lowdown on the worst mistake you can make for your skin...

My morning skin routine is quite simple...
Upon waking I will do a series of stretches with deep breathing, and five minutes of facial massage to get the blood circulation flowing. Then I have a cup of warm water with lemon and meditate in the garden. These important elements do have a big input on your skin’s well-being from the inside-out.

My golden rules for healthy skin...
I’d say the combination of a daily regimen, sleep, hydration, and a positive outlook can deliver the most beautiful, glowing skin.

When it comes to diet, I like to eat very simply...
No processed food, only clean food. Minimal snacking and drinking plenty of water. I believe in taking your time with meals and smaller portions overall.

The biggest mistake people make when looking after their skin has to be...
Not cleansing properly at night or skipping it. Using a skin cleansing tissue or micellar water is not a thorough cleanse - debris, makeup and sweat will stay and clog pores. It is necessary to cleanse for a few minutes in a circular massage pattern, rinse with warm water, and then follow with a toner to further remove any lingering matter from the skin.

I believe in the importance of spa treatments for the skin...
Budget permitting, if you can do monthly or bi-monthly facials, such as a deep pore cleansing facial with the addition of the CACI microcurrent treatment for firmness and fighting fine lines, it really can have a lasting impact on skin firmness, tone and overall health.

With my schedule being as busy it is, I sometimes overlook this, and when I do get back in sync with the treatments I truly see how much the lasting impact is on the texture and overall bright condition of the skin.
