- How often do you moisturise your face ?
- Most looked after body part is ?
Probably my face at the present time.
- Most neglected body part is ?
Definitely my hands.
- Regular skin care routine ?
“My current skincare routine consists of using a cleanser in the shower followed by eye cream and moisturiser when I get out of the shower (morning and night). The products I am currently using are Face Wash, an Eye Cream which was a Christmas present, and tinted moistuiser in the morning, and in the evening either the Light Moisturiser or Face Cream (which I have used since they started making it). I also put some cream on my legs in the mornings or my skin seems to end up like crocodile skin!”
- When it comes to taking care of your skin, you are ?
- What influences your skin care regime ?
“I was brought up to always look after my skin – this advice actually came from Dad as he had a French Grandmother who always insisted on a good skin routine no matter what. She also was a big believer in an afternoon nap with your legs raised up by cushions – I used to do this, but since having kids can never seem to find the time! I also like to use natural products where possible, and I don’t think a skin care routine has to be complicated to be effective. At the present time I would like to spend more time looking after myself, but with 3 children and 2 businesses I just never find the time for anything apart from a quick splash dash in the mornings and at night.”
- One piece of beauty advice you would give is ?
“That you are never too young to start looking after your skin. Encourage your daughters (and sons) to not only use a sunscreen but a natural gentle moistuiser as well from a very young age.”
