Carmen’s Skincare Tips For Winter 


Meet model, actress and mom, Carmen Castillo. Carmen is from Sosúa in the Dominican Republic. She features in our winter beauty shoots, channeling her effortless beauty and charm. Here we catch up with Carmen and get some top skincare tips.  

How did you start modeling?  

It’s quite funny really! Back in the Dominican Republic, I was already working in the modeling industry but on the business side. When I came to Barcelona, there were lots of changes happening in my life and one of them was going from organizing events for models, to becoming one! Thanks to the agency, I was able to join their roster of artists and actors.  

Has becoming a model influenced how you look after your skin? How and why?  

I have always taken good take of my skin, but in a way it has. Being a model requires you to be in good physical shape and having healthy, clear skin is part of the job. 

How do you prepare your skin for a shoot?   

I always cleanse and hydrate my skin before a shoot. And the same after! I try to use light make-up. I use Miriam Quevedo’s Black Baccara Volcanic Cleansing Powder twice a day. 

What are your top skincare tips for winter  

1. Use products containing skincare acids to remove dead skin and treat the deeper layers. 

2. Make sure I always follow my usual routine of hydrating and nourishing the skin.

3. Take care of my skin daily using treatments with different benefits.

What product do you always carry in your bag? 

Miriam Quevedo's A-helix Advanced Renewal Eye & Lip Contour Cream. I’m always touching up the contour of my lips.
