We wake up with Melanie Grant, in-demand facialist to beautiful model faces including Nicole Trunfio, Catherine McNeil and Phoebe Tonkin.
Melanie works between Sydney, Melbourne, Los Angeles and Paris, swears by topical Vitamin C and is a devout nightie wearer. Here she chats about how her mornings pan out.
What do you wear to bed?
Always a white nightie. Either Celestine, a German brand and the most comfortable nightie you’ll ever own, or Hanro. Never pyjamas.
How do you dress your bed?
Always white linen, quilt, European pillows, silk pillows and quilted pillow shams. I’m a tummy sleeper so silk is essential – it prevents me from waking with creases or lines on my face. Sometimes I’ll add a throw with breakfast cushions from Yves Delorme.
What is on your nightstand?
A resin sea urchin sculpture.
Who do you sleep with?
My husband Jason, and if I’m lucky I get cuddles with my boys on Sunday mornings – the best!
How many hours do you sleep?
I’ve always needed 8 hours to look and feel good, however over the last 12 months I’m only sleeping around six hours. I think you need less as you age.
What time do you wake up?
Between 5.30am and 6.00am.
