You may well have a few of her prod­ucts on your bath­room shelf. Now, the beauty in­no­va­tor tells us what she slathers on her own skin

Women's Health (UK) - - IN THE KNOW -

1. Lixirskin Vi­ta­min C Paste, £32

This is an ex­press mask and morn­ing cleanser in one and I use it daily. The vi­ta­min C in­stantly bright­ens, erad­i­cat­ing grey tones and boost­ing col­la­gen deep in the skin. I use a pea-sized amount and re­move it with a warm tow­elling mitt.

2. Omorovicza Oxy­gen Booster, £50

I don’t wear make-up, so on days when my skin needs a lit­tle bit more, I use this pick-me-up serum. It de­liv­ers oxy­gen to the skin for a fresh-faced glow. It’s par­tic­u­larly great on hun­gover skin; ap­ply along­side a dose of ibupro­fen!

3. Lan­caster Sun Beauty Vel­vet Touch Cream SPF30, £21

I feel that I cre­ate skin­care well but I don’t be­lieve in be­ing a jack of all trades so I don’t for­mu­late make-up or sun­care. Choose SPF from a brand that spe­cialises in sun­care – this is the only one I trust.

4. Ren Keep Young And Beau­ti­ful Firm­ing And Smooth­ing Serum, £46

Af­ter cleans­ing, I use a few drops of this. It con­tains firm­ing pep­tides so it’s very good at plump­ing skin. I think we fo­cus too much on erad­i­cat­ing wrin­kles; firm­ing is just as im­por­tant.

5. Lixirskin Uni­ver­sal Emul­sion, £45

We’re so short on time th­ese days for var­i­ous rea­sons, be it travel, work, mother­hood or money. I cre­ated this to make life easy – I use it every­where, on my face, neck, hands and around my eyes. It leaves skin plump and soft.

6. Ro­dial Rose Gold Deep Line Filler, £75

I adore this. It blurs lines with­out dry­ing out the skin and doesn’t have that sticky feel­ing that comes with sil­ica for­mu­las. Its anti-age­ing ac­tives mean it works in the long term as well as de­liv­er­ing an in­stant boost.

A typ­i­cal day: I tend to wake up as late as I can get away with and work from home un­til lunchtime. For me, time alone is es­sen­tial for pro­duc­tiv­ity. Skin­care phi­los­o­phy: I have a re­laxed ap­proach; less is more. Skin­care non-ne­go­tiable: Use vi­ta­min C if you want ra­di­ant skin. Per­sonal skin­care con­cern: There are two skin types; young and old. Mine’s the lat­ter.
