Which place would you travel to now, if you could?

Anywhere in Mexico!

What's the first restaurant you're going to go to after the quarantine?

It has to be Jaylu in Seville.

What are your favourite beauty places or spa treatments?

When I lived in Paris I used to love going to Les Bains du Marais for a scalp and foot massage; it was my trick to resolve any body ache or heartache!

What are you doing to stay mentally well at the moment?

Easier said than done with two young children! I try to look after myself as much as possible by doing a little face treatment once in a while. I use a really deeply nourishing scrub and a very hydrating mask.

What helps you get to sleep if you are wired but tired?

A glass of wine and a really boring podcast!

What is your skincare regime during the lock-down (morning and evening)?

To wake up my skin in the morning, I spritz my face with toner, after splashing it with cold water. I don’t cleanse, as I do that in the evening when I also apply a hydrating cream and some eye cream (if I don't forget). I also use a face scrub and do a hydrating mask once or twice a week.

What is the best beauty/ skin advice you've ever been given?

To splash your face with cold water in the morning, keeping your eyes open.

What's your favourite:


Bonjour Tristesse by Françoise Sagan


Anything by David Attenborough or Jane Goodall



Skincare product:

Irene Forte Pistachio Face Mask, it's heavenly.
