This week on The Skinterview, Megan is joined by her fairy godmother – Pamela Marshall from Mortar & Milk, a Bespoke Facial Skin Clinic in London.

You’ll find out some surprising factors that could be affecting your skin
From the way you remove your cleanser to the type or shampoo and conditioner you use to the accessories you pop on in the morning, Pamela highlights some of the most surprising daily habits that could be having an impact on your skin.

You’ll understand why consultation is everything
You just need to read our Trustpilot ratings to understand the value of our Holistic Skin Sessions, but in this podcast, Megan and Pamela dig a little deeper on the importance of skin consultations, whether that’s pre-treatment at Mortar & Milk or routine-based like our services. “You cannot help someone with their skin if you don’t understand what’s going on in their life, what they’re using on their skin, their lifestyle, what they eat, how they sleep,” Pamela explains. Like Pamela, we take a wholly holistic approach that accounts for everything from skin concerns to goals, diet to sleep and so much more.
