My beauty philosophy is...

True beauty comes from within, so I nourish and look after my body.

I like to use pure organic products and eat a healthy diet of fresh fruit and veges and drink plenty of lemon water. Exercise helps to keep me feeling great and stay focused and motivated.

The skincare products I can’t live without are...

Dermatech C15 Serum, Dermatech Glycolic Cream 10%, Aspect Dr Exfol A Plus Serum and Antipodes Divine Face Oil.

My haircare secret is...

Rodney Wayne hairdressing in Bethlehem. I love Kérastase haircare and treatments; they are the ultimate. KÉrastase Nectar Thermique is excellent for helping to protect my hair from constant blow-drying.

The must-have products in my make-up bag are...

I live and breathe Bella Vi Mineral make-up.

My favourite beauty treat is...

Thai massage, meditation and reflexology, as it always makes me feel stress-free and balanced. I also adore having a fresh set of nails in French polish from Idol nails.

My biggest beauty sin is...

Enjoying time relaxing in the Pacific Islands, being exposed to too much sun. I always get a spray tan before travelling for a healthy glow. I did try Botox once and, personally, I didn’t like the results, so won’t be getting it done again.

The best thing my mother taught me about beauty was...

My mother was a big inspiration to me. As a small child, I enjoyed watching her in action, demonstrating Nutrimetics at parties in our family home. After the skin was prepped, the ladies would learn how to apply the make-up, and look and feel more beautiful.
