Beauty

As a real, Botox-free, mother of three and a writer for women who are searching for ageless beauty hair, makeup and skincare advice so we can all look like the best version of ourselves, my advice is honest and sincere.

  • Stay out of the sun – an SPF whatever the weather really is your best ageless skin friend.
  • Less-is-more – fewer, consistent skincare steps are way better than the trend for 12 or more multiple layers that conflict with each other.
  • Take it easy – skin is there for a reason, don’t be too much of a disruptor.

Yes, an expressive face ages fastest – but happy lines of a good life versus a face that’s frozen in time…I know which I favour.
