What are your favourite skincare products?
“My all time favourite is the Julia Hunter cleanser because it offers just the perfect balance of cleansing. Others I like are the Evolve Melting Cleanser, which is a gel balm with a very good consistency. It’s a good price and also organic. I’d also always reach for the De Mamiel cleanser when I’m having a treat because you smell these amazing aromatherapy oils and it just makes me feel emotionally lifted.
“I never believe a moisturiser is going to give you tremendously active ingredients, because I think those usually come in a serum. If I do use moisturiser, its just because I want that sensorial feeling of putting it on my skin and that instant plumpness. I usually go for the Santa Maria Novella Crema F, which is an avocado-based cream, a bit like an old fashioned white cream. It penetrates beautifully and I love the smell.
“And then a super-packed serum I like is by Emepelle. It’s a product I’ve been trying for about five months. It’s specifically targeted at women who are menopausal and have suddenly got that sagging, dry, dehydrated skin. It’s a very good all-in-one serum. It’s not cheap, but then you could literally discard nearly all of your other products.”
