Doctor behind 'game-changing' skincare range shares her beauty, diet and anti-ageing secrets at 48 - and the one product you need to invest in now

Dr Maryam Zamani launched MZ Skin to combine functionality and beauty The luxury range aims to deliver youthful, glowing and beautiful skin  At 48, Dr Zamani always sticks to the same routine and never drinks coffee She also says eye cream is crucial as the eyes are the first to show ageing signs 

The doctor behind ‘game-changing’ skincare line MZ Skin has shared the secrets behind her enviable complexion – including a consistent routine, no coffee, beauty sleep and a good eye cream.

Dr Maryam Zamani, from London, was exposed to plastic surgery early on while working in Thailand for Operation Smile – an organisation that helps kids and adults with cleft lips and palates.

Upon returning to medical school she found she enjoyed delicate facial procedures and eventually moved into ophthalmology and oculoplastics – a specialty focusing on the functioning of the eye and the facial regions surrounding it.

She then moved into non-surgical aesthetics and later developed her own practice incorporating all she’d learned.

Dr Zamani’s skills combined with her love for skincare and a nightly ritual then grew into her own skincare line, MZ Skin, which she started formulating in 2014.

‘I have always loved skincare since my teens when my mother bought my first Lancôme moisturiser and that continued through college and med school,’ Dr Zamani, 48, told FEMAIL.

‘Back then Shiseido was my go-to skincare. I would study, workout, come home, shower, do my nightly skincare ritual, put on pretty underwear and pyjamas and go under my cold duvet.’

After completing her ophthalmology training, Dr Zamani started to notice ‘doctor brands’ were starting to pop up and while they captured her attention, none were quite right.

‘I started trying a few but was disinterested as I felt I was medicating my face… that beautiful sensory experience and ritual aspect was lost,’ she said.

‘I then started working with my own chemist creating formulas to supplement my routine.’

Dr Zamani worked with her formulator and would ask her patients and friends for feedback, tweaking as she went.

‘I had no vision of what the future would hold but when a buyer at Harrods wanted my products, MZ Skin was born. It’s been a fabulously exciting, challenging and rewarding road,’ she said.

The brand’s goal is to show clients you can have high-performance skincare that’s functional yet still beautiful; Dr Zamani describes it as a combination of ‘medically based know-how, feminine passion and determination’.

Dr Zamani keeps her routine simple and says the best regime you can have is one you are consistent with
'In the mornings I wash my face with Skin Cleanse & Clarify while I am in the shower,' she said

‘Like me, most of us want to have that no foundation, foundation look which translates into clear skin; clear from acne, pigment, or redness. My morning regime features products that promote collagen production and prevent damage from daily pollution and environmental aggressors,’ she said.

‘They are simple to use, and make me feel beautiful.’

‘In the mornings I wash my face with Skin Cleanse & Clarify while I am in the shower. Afterwards, I layer Brighten & Perfect 10 % Vitamin C Serum to combat oxidative damage and promote collagen production while decreasing the appearance of pigmentation, a condition I suffer from,’ she said.

‘I follow this with Soothe and Smooth to help build collagen in the delicate eye area while deeply hydrating the skin and my last step is Tint & Protect or Skin Hydrate and Nourish to help maintain hydration on my skin while also protecting it with SPF.’

In the evenings she cleanses then enhances with serums, eye cream and a moisturiser.

'It's always nice to have time once or twice a week to enhance this with a relaxing ritual that can include ampoules, masks and a LED mask,' she said

‘We do not need lots of different layers of skincare, we need skincare that works effectively and synergistically together,’ she said.

‘We use actives to promote even, hydrated, glowing skin and key ingredients in the MZ range include performance-proven active that we know to work – antioxidants, retinol, peptides, stem cells and placenta.’

This, she says, is key to resolving one of the biggest mistakes women make with their skincare: overdoing it.

'Sometimes when seeing different doctors, instead of looking better, they look different. The goal is to be the best version of yourself... remember less is more,' she said

‘Often people expect results before giving their skincare enough time or they use too many actives that may or may not work together and then do not know what may be exacerbating skin changes,’ she said.

‘In terms of in office procedures, sometimes people go to many different doctors for treatments. I think it is best to do your research, perhaps see a couple different people that have been recommended to you, and to build a relationship with your doctor.

As for reducing the effects of ageing, Dr Zamani says eye cream is the most important product.

‘The eye area is the first to show signs of ageing so ensure that you are using an effective eye cream, applied lightly using the ring finger,’ she said, adding that everyone’s night and morning routines should be different.

‘The morning is about protecting the skin, you should be wearing SPF every day to avoid premature ageing and pigmentation in later years. In the evening I recommend using a serum to assist in regenerating the skin filled with antioxidants and other ingredients), followed by a night cream.

‘My advice to women is to start using skincare products containing retinol to smooth out fine lines, reduce pigmentation and make pores less visible.
