My focus is on products with rich lipids that have small enough molecule chains to be absorbed into the deep layers of the skin, to increase collagen production; if these oils are massaged into the skin on a daily basis, they are really nourishing. I look for products that contain sea buckthorn and prickly pear oils, as they are high in essential fatty acids and are beneficial for the skin.
I take two supplements – Altrient C, £34.95, a form of vitamin C to boost collagen, and the energy-balancing Lumity Morning, £90. And I adore Aromatherapy Associates Rose Body Cream, £24. After body brushing, I bathe, then smother myself in it.
From the age of 40, I began using body cream after body brushing, as I started to notice my skin getting drier. I love bathing in Olverum Bath Oil, £48 – a restorative end to the day. I’m never without my Aveda Chakra Balancing Body Mists for clarity. I have them by my desk, and when I feel stressed or burdened, a little spritz does the trick.
May Lindstrom The Clean Dirt, £48, is a clever and unusual exfoliating treatment, and I use this once a week before my Romilly Wilde Light + Energy Serum Cleanser, £54. I’m also a big fan of the Kjaer Weis Mascara, £33, as it’s natural and doesn’t smudge or clog.
I try to exercise most days; Nordic walking for an hour is the best destressor for me. I take my dog, my poles and my music, and I power-walk up hills until I have completed the circuit. I have regular reflexology and acupuncture treatments, as well as an infrared sauna at least twice a week, to sweat out any toxins and help me relax.
