Q&A's

What does being healthy mean to you - really?

During my life my view on this has most definitely changed, in my 20’s my view was quite controlled and regimented. However I find a more balanced approach to physical and mental health is the best way to be healthy.

Anything in excess isn’t good. To look after our minds is one of the most important parts of health. Get outside, eat well, avoid caffeine, rest, be active, have fun.

If you want to look great as you age, don’t jump in with thinking injectables are the solution. We all have a choice in our aging process, don’t feel the pressure to look like everyone else.

Your homecare routine is essential and when combined with effective facials that are actually improving the quality and appearance of the skin, then you will age the best you can.

Cleanse morning and night – not over stripping, I love to use a cream, oil or balm cleanser in the evening then a wash in the morning.

20 years worth of hands on skincare experience. I have had my hands on many many faces and bodies during my career as an aesthetician and physical therapist. I love combining science within products and treatments with hands on skills that I have continued to develop over the years, which I love sharing to help everyone achieve the best skin they can, though facial massage and much more.

For the love of God get off that sunbed!
