Dr. Ewoma Takes ‘Glazed Donut Skin’ to the Next Level

In today’s media environment, it feels as if we’re bombarded with new beauty products, treatments, and ingredients every day. This constant deluge of information can be a bit overwhelming, but Dr. Ewoma Ukeleghe’s voice cuts through all the noise. The London-based medical and cosmetic doctor imparts her clinical expertise through approachable videos on social media, and, thankfully, she’s not one to gatekeep. She shares everything from tips on how to use retinol to her favorite bronzers to advice on repairing your skin barrier and setting boundaries. Below, Dr. Ewoma details her wellness rituals, go-to skin tint, and more.

Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder

“I absolutely love this setting powder. It's one of the best powders on the market—it literally makes your skin look airbrushed.”

Charlotte Tilbury

H2O Micellar Water

“This is one of my holy grail products, I use it for makeup removal or as a quick morning cleanse if I’m going to the gym and coming back home afterward.”


Heartleaf 77 Soothing Toner

“The main ingredient in this toner is an herbal extract, so it’s very soothing, calming, and nourishing. It’s super minimal and gentle, but I also find it to be really effective.”


Stem Cell Collagen Activator

“My skin really loves this combination of products. I layer the Stem Cell Collagen Activator with the Stem Cell Serum, and it makes my skin look firmer, juicier, and softer.”

Sarah Chapman London

Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream

“I’m falling back in love with this moisturizer. My skin just loves it—it doesn’t break me out, and it gives me a subtle dewy glow. I’ve been pairing it with the Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen, my current go-to SPF.”


Cicaplast B5 Soothing Repairing Concentrate Spray

“This product is all about addressing irritated skin. It’s an amazing hydrator. It’s fragrance-free, non-fussy, and, in many ways, it has replaced a separate hydrating serum for me.”

Venus Dermaplaning Tool

“I feel like dermaplaning is one of those treatments where once you do it, you’re like, ‘Oh, that’s what my skin is supposed to look like.’ It helps with peach fuzz, but it also acts as an exfoliator. It helps your products sit so much better. Venus recently launched their own dermaplaning tool, so that’s my go-to right now.”


Yummy Skin Soothing Serum Skin Tint Foundation with Peptides + Ceramides

“I kid you not, this is one of the best skin tints I’ve ever used. The color match is insane. It has that perfect dewy—but not greasy—skin-like finish. It’s lightweight and gives you a hint of coverage that never looks or feels like too much.”

Danessa Myricks Beauty

Cream Contour Stick

“It’s a gorgeous shade of brown, creamy, and it has incredible payoff without being too aggressive.”

Hydrating Lip Treatment Oil

“I use the Ami Colé Lip Oil Treatment in the shade Excellence, and I love it. It gives you that ‘your lips but better’ shade.”

Ami Cole


Lymphatic Drainage Massage at CGL Beauty

“Regarding wellness, there are a couple of key things I do. First, I get a lymphatic drainage massage every month. Aside from the instant de-puff and de-bloat that it gives you, it's also great if you’re trying to reach fitness goals. I go to CGL Beauty, and I absolutely adore her. She really gets in there, and then she puts an EMS—electrical muscle stimulator—on my abs. It’s one of my holy grail treatments.”

Colonic at The Hale Clinic

“Every once in a while, when I feel like I need it, I'll get a colonic. This is not me giving medical advice per se as a doctor, it’s more so something I like to do that is more on the holistic end of things. I find that a colonic just helps to do a deep flush. I go once a year, maybe twice at most. Again, it's going to be particularly useful for someone who deals with bloating or any GI issues. I just love it—it helps to reset me. I go see Kaori Murphy on Harley Street.”

IV Drip at Harrods Wellness Clinic

“Occasionally, I get an IV drip if I’m feeling run down. I definitely make sure there's a bit of [vitamin] B12 in there, glutathione, NAD, and vitamin C. Those are the key [vitamins] I tend to look out for.”

Perfect Derma Peel

“My favorite chemical peel is definitely the Perfect Peel. In the States, it’s called the Perfect Derma Peel. It’s a medium-depth peel with an adequate amount of downtime—about five to seven days—and the results are great.”


“I love a good injectable. I don't hide that. I talk openly about the treatments I’ve done on social media. Why? Not because I'm attention-seeking, but I just want to make it very clear to my audience, particularly my younger audience, that I wasn't born this way. I feel like we have a responsibility to stop scamming the girls. Filler-wise, I've had my nose done, cheekbones, temples, and lips a couple of times, though I did my lips myself. I limit myself to twice a year, max.”

Microneedling Treatments

“I love a good microneedling session with some skin boosters. So what I want to stress is that it doesn't help with pigmentation. Unless it’s combined with a serum, it doesn't do anything for hyperpigmentation. However, for me, it's a very low-tech treatment. I just find it's perfect for my skin's health. It helps with firmness and it helps bring the skin back to life.”


“I use tret in what I would call a pulse method. So I might use it intensely for a week, take a break for a week, then use it intensely for two weeks, and take a break for three. It’s very sporadic, but it's all in accordance with how my skin is responding and if I'm seeing any side effects.”
