This month’s Haul of Fame Most Wanted Product shines a light on the globally renowned brilliance of the Murad brand, and if you’ve not tried this cult classic, you don’t want to miss out (it’s around for ONE MONTH ONLY). To celebrate Murad’s Haul of Fame debut, we wanted to introduce you to a world leading visionary – the founder of this unbound skincare brand, Dr Howard Murad. Dr. Murad is recognised worldwide for his unmatched scientific innovations, which is why we’re so excited to bring you one of his groundbreaking skincare formulas. Dr Murad’s formulas were among the first to achieve significant, measurable anti-ageing results without surgery. So, who is Dr Murad?

Q
What does a ‘day in the life’ look like for you?
A
Every day is varied, however mornings are usually similar in that I always wake up and get up super early; then I like to spend time with myself quietly for ten minutes; then have a light breakfast and head to the gym for about an hour. I’m then usually in the office by 9am and my day could be spending time with the NPD team in the Murad lab, working on new product formulations and testing; or researching and conducting experiments into how stress impacts our emotional well-being; talking to Beauty Editors across the globe; or even hosting painting classes with staff members to help reduce their stress levels.
Q
If there is only one thing we should be doing with/for our skin, what should it be?
A
To eat your water! If you eat your water, you won’t need to count your glasses. Replace at least one glass of water a day with one serving of raw fruits or vegetables to help you stay hydrated significantly longer. Nourishing your body properly by eating raw fruits and vegetables will help strengthen your cells from the inside out. Eating foods that are rich in structured water, especially raw fruits and vegetables, will not only help your body hold onto water longer, you’ll get the added boost of important antioxidants, fibre and other nutrients. By sticking to a healthy diet you’ll end up eating most of the water needed each day to stay well hydrated.
Q
What are your top three Murad products you’d recommend?
A
This would depend on your main skin concern. I would recommend a minimum of a cleanser, serum and moisturiser with SPF protection. The cleanser and moisturiser should be chosen according to skin type and the serum chosen according to your main skin concern, as this is the most powerful step in your skincare regime and will help to transform your skin. For example, the concern may be pigmentation, acne, sensitivity or lines and wrinkles.

Don’t forget to add the Murad Exfoliating AHA/BHA Cleanser to your box this month! It won’t be around for long…

Q
What are you most passionate about?
A
Helping everyone live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives.
Q
You first worked as a pharmacist, when was it that you decided you wanted to develop skincare?
A
I first worked as a pharmacist to fund my time at medical school, where I then studied to become a dermatologist. I began compounding my own product formulas when my own patients weren’t getting the results they wanted from their prescriptions and over the counter products that were available at the time. My patients loved the results from the products and the brand really grew from there.
Q
What makes Murad different to other skincare brands?
A
At Murad, we believe there is a powerful connection between skin, body and mind and that an inclusive approach that improves skin and overall health through diet, lifestyle and managing stress is key. We create products and experiences that deliver wellness solutions through our science of water and continue to innovate high-performance technologies and formulas so our products, like your skin, just keep getting better.
Q
What is the most rewarding part of owning a global skincare brand?

A
My skincare range is a way for me to share my skincare products and professional facial treatments with the world; it’s so rewarding to be able to help transform people’s lives and help them to fulfil their potential.
Q
What’s an upcoming skincare trend to look out for?

A
Managing lifestyle is an important aspect of your overall wellbeing, from stress levels to sleep quality. Products that support our customers in these areas are growing in popularity. We launched Revitalixir Recovery Serum to treat signs of stress on the skin and around the eyes, reviving a dull, dehydrated complexion. And we’re just launching Night Fix Enzyme Treatment, to treat signs of sleep deprivation. You apply over your night cream to support overnight skin repair, while an Aroma Technology is proven to enhance sleep quality, so you wake to skin that looks well rested.
