“In terms of the exterior, the skin is always crucial. I watch the antioxidants, I always use a vitamin C in the morning. I use salicylic acid to shrink my sebaceous glands. I use different types of acids. to wash my face, different tonics and solutions and vitamin C, and retinol and sunscreen, ”she explained.
“At the most, it takes me 10 minutes.
“Wash face, exfoliate, dry, apply solution, then antioxidant, then sunscreen, then wash at night, make sure all makeup is off and then the same.
“People are overwhelmed when I explain my protocol to them, but in fact, within two to three weeks, my skin feels better and looks better.
“Everyone wants smoother, brighter skin. The biggest trend over time is beautiful skin.”
For her inner health, Jonquille practices mindfulness, meditation and yoga, and takes supplements.
One of the world’s leading experts in fillers and botox, who has traveled the world speaking at international seminars, Daffodil’s clinic, One Aesthetic Studio, is based at Alderley Edge.
There, she also facilitates yoga and wellness sessions to help patients achieve wellness on the inside as well as work on their outside body.
Jonquille, a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, studied at Manchester High School for Girls as a scholarship student before studying medicine and surgery at Nottingham Medical School.
She worked at Booth Hall Hospital in Blackley, specializing in intensive care and children’s burns before specializing in burns and plastic surgery at Wythenshawe Hospital.
In 2004, she was recruited to work in aesthetics – when it was a new field – and in 2010, she launched her practice, ONE Aesthetic Studio.
Jonquille, who has lectured on six continents, has cared for patients over the years throughout their new careers, marriages, children, grandchildren and businesses.
She has noticed that more and more people now want to achieve a more “normal” look – following the “Instagram Face” phenomenon brought on by millennials on social media.
She explained of her job: “The types of patients who come to me tend to be very demanding, very thoughtful, most of them don’t want to be on social media or have their photos anywhere. , so they’re very under the radar anyway.
“But what I would say is that I have certainly always inherited a lot of patients who wanted to make a lot of corrections and now more than ever.
“Most people not only want to look more natural but more normal. It’s so far removed from normal.
“In 2019, I launched a new product to define the jawbone, one of the new Juvederms, and I had been working on it since 2012, from the lab to launch.
“I threw it live in Monaco in 2019 and did an amazing case which then won an award and then everyone started to jawbone.
“But the point is, a lot of women don’t necessarily need it. It’s there to structure and it’s there to provide support, not to overly masculine themselves or to give someone a bigger chin than they are. ‘he hasn’t already.
“I think people just wanted to get back to normal.”
She added, “I think that’s going to filter through. I think a lot of millennials are still in that kind of mindset of wanting to do a lot and that can often be seen as a status symbol or to keep pace.
“Maybe it’s about time but we’re not there yet, a lot of millennials are still driving this ‘Instagram Face’.
“We’re talking about Instagram Face where it’s basically a whole bunch of different facial subunits that aren’t naturally found in one place like a Mongolian cheekbone, a Caucasian jawbone, all of those things that people want to fuse together. in a face and people always claim it.
“Let’s see what will happen.
“Of course, there are always influences that will make changes – we saw that when Kylie Jenner first had her lips dissolved several years ago. Things started to change then – there, but it’s still a long way to go. “
In addition to exterior beauty, Jonquille, who recently opened a clinic in Selfridges in London, says focusing on the mental well-being of her patients is now more important than ever.
“It was so important before the pandemic but now more than ever,” she said.
“In my first degree, I majored in psychiatry. I’ve always been interested in the mindset of mental health, understanding ourselves.
“Not everyone is the same. Not everyone wants to be more attractive, more beautiful or younger.
“Everyone has different motivations why they want something done. But it has to tie in so closely with mental health in a positive way.
“People can feel that it really boosts their self-esteem and self-confidence and that’s why I’m doing it. It’s to try to make people feel more in tune with what they’re feeling at home. inside so they don’t feel so tired outside.
“Of course with social media everyone feels judged all the time, but we are constantly exposed, even if we are not in the spotlight, so that can really help positively.
“However, if people think this is going to wave a magic wand and make them feel a real sense of happiness, we know that no external factor or hunt for an external factor will.
