Celebrity facialist Sarah Chapman recently revealed that she's behind another A-list glow: that of Meghan Markle.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Chapman – who also has Victoria Beckham, Gigi Hadid and Uma Thurman on her client list at her London clinic – confirmed the rumours that she worked with Meghan while the Sussexes were still living in the capital, including ensuring the Duchess' skin looked its best on her wedding day in May 2018.

Chapman wrote: 'Through my work I am fortunate to meet some incredible, interesting and inspirational people and over the past 2 ½ years I feel honoured to have spent much time with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. With Meghan, what began as a client relationship quickly turned into a dear friendship and she welcomed me into their lives.

'I am happy to share with fond memories some of these glowing skin moments I helped create for Meghan with our natural approach to beauty and look forward to many more in the future.'

Those memories included some of Meghan's most memorable moments, such as her wedding day and on her final joint royal engagement with Harry at the Commonwealth Day Service last month.

Although Chapman didn't share exactly what she used on the Duchess' skin to get that enviable glow (no doubt products from her cult Skinesis line), she has previously said that the secret to a radiant complexion is a good skincare routine.

Speaking on This Morning last year, she recommended following a simple three-step method: cleanse, serum and moisturise with products that include Vitamin C to 'supercharge' your skin.

'Your cleansers are so much more advanced now that you don't need to tone after every cleanse,' Chapman explained. 'A serum will really deliver potent active ingredients deeper into the skin and then your moisturiser will seal all of that in on top.'

She also advised 'taking Omega supplements or eating lots of oily fish' because 'it is true that beauty comes from within' – and said she has one non-negotiable in her skincare routine, using an SPF everyday to protect your skin, no matter the weather!

'It's really important to protect from the environment, from UV damage, infrared rays and thermal rays, which all accelerate the ageing process,' Chapman said.

In terms of the facials enjoyed by Meghan and other A-listers, they include plenty of movements to feed skin cells with nutrients and oxygen, releasing any tension that has built up.

'We use lots of techniques of massage during a facial so we’ll do a lot of pinching, small movements that really boost the blood flow,' she said. 'If you really work the eyebrows in this area you actually get a bit of an eyelid lift because it will remove the tension which opens up the eyes.'
