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

I would go to Noto in Sicily and visit my favourite bar, Caffè Sicilia, where they make the best Granita in the world! 

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

Harry's Dolci for Vodka Martinis and sunset views over Venice. 

What is the first outfit you’re going to wear post lockdown? 

My Luisa Beccaria linen dress paired with ViBiVenezia slippers, of course! 

What are your favourite beauty places or spa treatments? 

The Nourishing Face Ritual at the  Aman Venice spa.  
 

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

I do a boot camp class every day and a bit of yoga every now and then. 

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

I watch a movie that I've seen a 1000 times already. 

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

I wash my face with a warm towel, and then I use Irene Forte Skincare! I use the Lemon Toner followed by the  Hibiscus Serum both morning and evening. I then follow with the Prickly Pear Face Cream in the morning, and the Hibiscus Night Cream in the evening. 

Do you have one evening or more a week where you spend time masking/ pampering? What do you do? 

No, sono negata ;) 

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

Wash your face daily with a warm wet towel; it's the best way to clean your face.
