I’M OBSESSED with a Japanese
skincare brand called Forlle’d (forlleduk.com): it uses nanotechnology to create molecules of hyaluronic acid that penetrate the skin. I wash my face with Hyalogy Creamy Wash (£84), then apply Hyalogy serum (£225) to my face and eyes. It leaves my skin glowing.
HEALTHY LONG HAIR
I LOVE having my hair long. I only use shampoo on the scalp, not the hair, as it can dry it out. I try not to wash it more than a couple of times a week, as it can become brittle if you overwash it. I do a Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Mask (£6.99, superdrug.com) once a week.
LOCKDOWN KETO DIET
I WAS inspired to try a keto diet — low-carb and high in fat. Now, instead of a regular pizza, I opt for one made from a cauliflower base, or I’ll have lentil spaghetti instead of pasta. I’ve also cut out gluten, which helps me feel less bloated. I lost 15lb in three months, dropped a dress size to a 10 d h l ll lit and have less cellulite.
I WALK up to 17,000 steps a day. And I love to swim twice a week for pleasure. I don’t like to call it exercise because it would put me off going! I prefer to call it stress relief, as I feel so happy when I’m floating in the water. Plus, it’s low-impact and easy on my joints.
TWEAKMENTS can help delay ageing. I’ve been having Botox twice a year since I was 33 and I also get fillers once a year, as well as an Aquagold Fine Touch facial (£350) every two months. Tiny needles poke 1 mm holes in the face and carry a cocktail of anti-ageing ingredients deep into the skin. It gives me a glowy complexion and softer skin.
