Behind The Mask: Meet Charli Howard
Name: Charli Howard

Occupation: Model, writer & founder of Squish Beauty 🍒

What is one thing everyone should be adding to their daily routine to stay healthy and positive during these stressful times?
You HAVE to leave the house once a day, even if it’s just to go to the store. It’s so easy to become depressed when you don’t feel you have anything to go out for, but moving your body will truly help!

What does your quarantine self care routine look like?
My skin has improved massively during quarantine and I believe that’s because I finally have time to really take care of my skin. I use Teresa Tarmey’s microneedling kit to help with the acne scars and wear make-up only when necessary.

What is your quarantine hero product and why?
The Beauty Pie Triple Hyaluronic Acid Drops have kept my skin really hydrated and soft, especially in the last couple of months where the heating has been on!

Favorite Squish product?                                                                                   
It’s a toss up between the Smoosh moisturiser (which I wear every day) and the Flower Power Acne Patches! Both look so cute in your bathroom cabinet. 

Finish this sentence “I mask up for…”
The essential workers - if they can wear a mask for hours and hours a day, so can I!

Finish this sentence “Masking up makes me feel…”
Safe! I actually quite like wearing masks - you feel quite safe behind one.

What will you do in your next normal?
I can’t wait to get on a plane and go somewhere exotic. Or maybe back to New York to see my friends and apartment. I’m in London right now and it’s freezing cold and raining - I need sun!

What has the silver lining of quarantine been for you?
It’s really calmed my anxiety and made me realise that I don’t have to do EVERYTHING and burn myself out. I’ve also connected with my family again which has been really nice!

Favorite barrière mask and why?
The cherry one of course! (But the bandana print is very 90s!!)
