How to keep your cool

I know the weather is really hot for lots of you right now, and I'm currently enjoying some Italian sun on my summer holiday. While I love the warm temperatures, the hot, humid air can play havoc with skin, so I keep cooling products to hand. I also carry these in my kit to use on the models and celebrities I’m working with (they were especially useful during my shoots in Ibiza and the South of France recently). Think of them like instant pick-me-ups for sticky skin and bodies – they’ll cool, calm, hydrate and take down redness and irritation. You can also use some of them post-sport and exercise as they can help soothe tired muscles.

There are lots of ingredients that have the ability to cool, from the more obvious like mint (which triggers the cold-sensitive receptors in our skin, making it one of the most effective cooling agents around) and cucumber, to the more unusual like avocado (a natural soother and hydrator), green tea (which can reduce inflammation and redness) and oatmeal (when combined with cooling ingredients, it can help to reduce irritation). Look out for ingredients like these when you’re shopping for cooling products and have a look at my picks for keeping your cool in the heat below...

Why I love the Mayr

Earlier this year, in April, I made my annual visit the Mayr health retreat in Austria. When I tell people that I’ve being doing annual Mayr ‘cures’ for years, their first response is often to gasp in horror. They’ve likely heard shocking reports of no food, colonics and long, boring days (interjected with regular trips to the bathroom), but my experience is the complete opposite. Yes, the Mayr is very much a medical clinic as opposed to a luxury spa, and it isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it’s far from torturous. If anything, what the Mayr teaches is basic common sense - eat slowly, chew properly, drink plenty of water and go to bed early.

Youth In A Tube - The Lowdown on Sunscreen

Come say hi on Instagram.

This film is full of information about the latest rules, regulations and the ingredients to know when it comes to sunscreen. I've spoken to dermatologists and scientists in the UK and USA and have included products recommended by them, as well as some personal favourites that I use on myself and my celebrity clients.

Keeping your skin protected in the sun is one of the easiest ways you can keep it looking younger for longer, and with so many great textures and formulas available now for every skin type, there really is no excuse not to wear SPF everyday ;) I hope the film is helpful for everyone who asked for it X

Thank you to Dr Nick Lowe, Jeff Murad, Kathy Phillips, Janne-Marii Nurm, and Nathan Rivas for their insights.

The lipstick I am wearing in the film is Lancome's shine lover in 218 and the liner is Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude  X

Jet Setting Makeup Staples

I'm lucky enough to do lots of travelling, for work and pleasure, and like to think I've got my beauty and makeup packing down to a fine art. I'm getting ready to head off on holiday later this week and am packing lots of my usual makeup staples that I wanted to share with you. For me, it's all about ensuring you have a really good edit of hard-working products that will perform well - and last.
