How would you describe your daily skin care routine?

Simple … Cleanse ( cetaphil), sunscreen and moisturiser at the moment. I am using Kiehls Ultra Facial  moisturizing lotion , but I change it up every few months… I try to drink 3 litres of water a day and take a multi vitamin!

Do you have any beauty secrets you swear by?

Be happy, it shows on your face… Protect your skin from the sun and don’t cake on the makeup ( I think it makes you look older) … Though if your super tired and time poor ( like me) a bright lip can also work wonders!

What is the most important aspect to you of looking after your skin?

Hate to bang on but I think it really is protecting it from the sun…. Ladies if you want to be brown… Fake…fake…fake, I like st tropez brand it’s smells better than the others……

Has becoming a mum changed the way you look after your skin?
