What does it mean to be a L’oréal Paris spokesper­son? I’m ex­tremely flat­tered to be part of an al­ready incredible team of “Women of Worth.” L’oréal Paris is not about one sin­gle idea of beauty, but al­lows ev­ery woman to feel beau­ti­ful in her own way.

How do you keep your com­plex­ion even? Get­ting plenty of wa­ter is key to keep­ing your skin hy­drated from the in­side. As for the out­side, I rely on Re­vi­talift to keep it soft and per­fectly mois­turised. I also stay out of the sun and al­ways carry sun­screen.

Do you have any beauty se­crets? They’re ac­tu­ally not se­crets, but drink plenty of wa­ter and get plenty of sleep—that, and tint­ing my eye­lashes and eye­brows. Ex­er­cise is very im­por­tant for me, so I do yoga and Pi­lates. I’m also a fan of car­dio dance classes. It’s good fun, you feel quite goofy and you ac­tu­ally get a good sweat go­ing.

What are your favourite L’oréal Paris prod­ucts? Re­vi­talift, Mil­lion Lashes Mas­cara, El­nett and Mir­a­cle Blur.

What are your must-have beauty prod­ucts? Sun­screen, cream blush, mas­cara, Re­vi­talift and Lu­cas Pa­paw Oint­ment.

What’s your daily rou­tine? I can’t ever stick with an ex­act rou­tine, but there are a few things I don’t com­pro­mise on: sleep, wa­ter, mois­turiser and deep cleans­ing. What is your typ­i­cal day? Make the kids break­fast and do the school run. If I’m not work­ing, go to an ex­er­cise class, catch up on some read­ing and have lunch with friends.

What is your favourite hair­style? I love nat­u­ral waves, ex­actly how my hair looks af­ter spend­ing an af­ter­noon at the beach.

What’s your big­gest beauty mis­take? An asym­met­ri­cal hair­cut that I did my­self. I was 15 and it was a com­plete dis­as­ter.

What are your trav­el­ling es­sen­tials? A cash­mere blan­ket, my ipad mini and a good mois­turiser.

What is the best beauty tip you have re­ceived? Tint­ing eye­lashes and eye­brows from a make-up artist years ago. My eye­lashes are com­pletely blonde so I need to have my eyes tinted to frame my face.

Who are your beauty icons? Grace Kelly, Au­drey Hep­burn, Sophia Loren and Cather­ine Deneuve.

What does ageing grace­fully mean to you? Be­ing at peace with the nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion of life. At times it feels like an up­hill bat­tle.

What beauty se­cret would you tell your younger self? Life­style is key—it’s im­por­tant to take care of your skin out­side and in­side. But also con­fi­dence is the best beauty se­cret. It’s im­por­tant that young women un­der­stand that you have to trust your­self to age grace­fully.
