Do you have a beauty regime? I do yes. I like to keep things very simple and uncomplicated but I certainly have a regime. I use a light exfoliator each night after I have removed all my make-up, followed by a night cream. Then, in the morning I use a light day cream before applying my foundation over the top. I do find my skin can get very dry especially in the winter months. Moisturising twice a day really keeps this at bay for me.

Do you have a particular product you cannot live without? I’m an absolute sucker for Neal’s Yard Remedies! The products that I use on my skin are in fact all from this company. My favourite of all of them would have to be the Rose and Almond Night Cream. This cream really does soothe and remove all the redness from my skin by the time I wake up in the morning. Especially after wearing make-up and facing the elements from the previous day.

What’s your ultimate pampering treat? My ultimate pampering treat is definitely the Rosemary and Cedarwood Hair Treatment from Neal’s Yard Remedies… Like I said, I’m a real sucker! This product gives my hair that extra lift and bit of last minute love, especially when I’m in need of a hair cut and haven’t quite found the time to get it in the diary.

Who’s your style icon? Without a doubt my style icon is my partner in life and business… He is a man and therefore has completely different clothes to me, but his wardrobe is beautifully curated. It’s wonderfully simple and uncomplicated.
