Q

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE EN­TAIL?

A

I wash, tone and mois­turise daily. I also try to ex­fo­li­ate once a week.

Q

DO YOU STICK TO YOUR SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE EV­ERY DAY?

A

Ab­so­lutely! I have a ca­reer that re­quires me to wear make-up daily, so I en­sure my skin is well taken care of. This in­cludes wash­ing, ton­ing and mois­tur­is­ing re­li­giously in or­der to main­tain a clear com­plex­ion and avoid blem­ishes.

Q

DOES YOUR SKIN­CARE ROU­TINE CHANGE IN SUM­MER? IF SO, HOW?

A

It does change in sum­mer. I’m aware that I need to use more sun­screen in sum­mer to pro­tect my skin. I tend to for­get to use it in win­ter.

Q

DO YOU HAVE ANY IS­SUES OR PROB­LEMS WITH YOUR SKIN?

A

I’ve suf­fered from adult acne be­fore and I know for a fact that your con­fi­dence takes a knock when you have skin is­sues. Luck­ily those days are be­hind me and I now make sure I stick

to my daily cleans­ing route to main­tain the cur­rent con­di­tion of my skin. I also try to im­prove the over­all health of my skin by us­ing qual­ity prod­ucts I can trust, such as Pond’s.

Q

WHAT IS THE ONE BEAUTY GROOM­ING PROD­UCT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITH­OUT AND WHY?

A

I swear by the Pond’s Per­fect Colour Com­plex beauty cream, which helps to fade dark marks and blem­ishes. We are all ex­posed to the sun daily and our skin is com­pro­mised by ex­po­sure to the harsh en­vi­ron­ment. Just 10 min­utes out­side can trig­ger 10 of the tough­est dark mark prob­lems. It’s im­por­tant to use a prod­uct that will pro­tect your skin from the harsh ef­fects of the en­vi­ron­ment.

Q

DO YOU EVER AD­VISE YOUR PEERS ABOUT TAK­ING CARE OF THEIR SKIN? WHAT IS THEIR RE­SPONSE?

A

I get asked a lot about how I per­son­ally take care of my skin and I’m al­ways will­ing to give ad­vice be­cause when a woman feels con­fi­dent, she can achieve any­thing. I think that peo­ple, es­pe­cially my peers, are al­ways keen to take ad­vice based on good word of mouth on a rou­tine that has worked well for some­one they re­spect and trust.
