Speaking to Birchbox, Meghan revealed: 'I do facial exercises taught to me by one of my favorite aestheticians, Nicola Joss, who basically has you sculpt your face from the inside out. I swear it works, as silly as you may feel.?
'On the days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are waaaay more sculpted. There’s a reason she is in high demand around awards season when every actress wants to look A-plus.'
As Nichola demonstrates in a video tutorial, she pulls on her surgical gloves and massages her client's face from inside the mouth.?
On her website, she explains that her technique addresses sagging muscles through deep lymphatic massage and contouring techniques
Nichola has designed the facial to lift the facial contours and give a fresh radiant look to the skin
HOW SHE DOES IT
Put latex gloves on
Work along the inside of the jaw, pulling out the tension and stress and making them softer and they rise
Isolate the muscle that sits on top of the cheekbone and really push all of the tension out of there
On her website, she explains: 'This is designed with you in mind, looking at the tone texture and condition of your skin and addressing sagging muscles through deep lymphatic massage and contouring techniques Nichola has designed to lift the facial contours and give a fresh radiant look to the skin.?
'This treatment involves massage from inside the mouth to de stress the muscle tissue and improve the tone and firmness of the facial muscles to add youth and vitality.?
'Encouraging the muscles to sit higher and with more volume and youth. All designed around a bespoke cocktail of products to add a personalised treatment especially for your skin.'?

As well as this peculiar treatment, Meghan credits her mum, Doria, a yoga teacher and social worker, for her complexion. It was Doria who insisted Meghan started having professional facials at 13 — a habit she has kept.
Remembering her first forays into the beautician’s, Meghan says: ‘It seemed so silly at the time. We would drive home with my mom saying: “You must always take care of your skin.”
‘To feel confident in my skin requires a bit of maintenance, from drinking lots of water, to always applying sunblock, and getting a facial as often as possible,’ she says.?
Meghan's facialist reveals the four biggest skincare mistakes we ALL make (and why young women should avoid wearing too much makeup)
1. Not cleansing correctly
'If you don’t remove cleanser correctly, cleansing particles sit deep in your skin,' Nichola explains.?
'That will lead to congestion and cause breakouts and also an imbalance of pH levels. Essentially, you have to make sure you cleanse off your cleanser.

'In the evening I always make sure I remove any environmental grime, and then do a second cleanse to cleanse the skin slightly deeper.'
2. Skipping toner
'This is one of the most important elements for keeping skin clean and maintaining its pH levels,' Nichola explains.?
'It can also re-balance, refresh, and remove any cleansing particles that are still in the skin - as well as helping to remove cleanser.'?
3. Wearing too much makeup
'Nowadays, girls in their twenties wear far more makeup, layers of foundation and contouring and illuminators, and that can be quite damaging because there’s quite a heavy build-up on the skin,' says Nichola.?
'The most important thing is to remove all of your makeup and do a gentle exfoliation. Too much makeup can cause congestion and cause breakouts.'
4. Rushing your routine
'It’s imperative to break your skincare regime up into stages,' says Nichola.?
'As soon as you get home, the first thing you must do is remove the grime and pollution, then?allow your skin to optimise the heavy-working products like anti-ageing products.?
'Do those first steps very early in the evening and leave for at least three to four hours.
'If they’re working throughout the early evening while you’re cooking or watching TV, they can work quite freely and you’re still active and moving therefore your blood is circulating quite highly. That helps the function which helps efficacy of the product.
'And then, when you put an oil on at bedtime, because you’ve given these products time to work.
'When you massage an oil in at bedtime, it traps those products skin-deep so it keeps them working.'?
Nichola also reccomends?an anti-ageing supplement called Lumity.
The?two-part supplement programme (you take one in the morning and one at night) contains a variety of useful vitamins and amino acids, and was created by a Cambridge University graduate.
The celebrity favourite also contains nutrients including lysine, selenium, vitamin D and magnesium to support hormone production.?
'I've been using it religiously for about a year,' Nichola reveals. 'It makes a massive difference; helps to heal the inside of my body and helps me to recover quickly.
'It also helps to re-balance my hormones, and helps with hair as well.'
