Once upon a time I took my A levels and then a gap year… Courtesy of the BBC’s clothes show competition I ended up in London with Models One. The year was 1989.
My first job was for Company Magazine “Face of the 90’s.”
I was quickly relocated to Milan then Paris, racking up campaigns for BURBERRY, EMPORIO ARMANI, and DE BEERS DIAMONDS, to name a few .
Quite a change from rural Dartmoor where I grew up.
During this time I was privileged to work with the world’s best photographers, designers, hair and makeup artists.
I also became a serious consumer of products…
I had always been interested in natural products, those without harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances. Whilst I was abroad I would mix up my own beauty products.
It was imperative that my skin was always in tip top condition, much of my work was “beauty work”, the up close with nowhere to hide sort.
Remember, this was pre mass airbrushing and photoshop, we were still on manual SLR’s.
You were booked to be flawless
Obviously, diet and lifestyle has a large part to play, but so does what you put on your skin. It is the largest organ of your body and can absorb up to 60% of the product you expose it to.
I believe that a beauty product should be free from synthetic additives and be able to work on a THERAPEUTIC level, to do you good.
I also believe that we ALL need to be responsible for this planet, and as such, I aim to use packaging that is either reusable, recyclable or biodegradable.
My children are now 11,12, and 13, my complementary healthcare clinic is up and running. I feel confident in my skills as an OSTEOPATH and I have found more time in the day to create my range of naturally pure skincare products.
I hope you love them as much as I do.
But Just don’t take my word for it, read what the bloggers think
