How do you like to start your morning?

I love to start my day with a homemade acai bowl and a cup of earl grey tea whilst I check my emails and organise my day ahead 

Talk us through your daily skincare routine…

I start with using my Phyto Gel Wash which wakes me up, feeling refreshed. I follow that with my Micellar Water, Pollution Defence Cream, Luminescent Base and an SPF – I love to layer products and generously feed my skin. 

When I move my body I…

I feel energised with a sense of contentment 

How long have you been in the skincare industry and what was it that drew you to follow this path?

I have been in the industry for over 20 years. I have looked after my own skin from a young age and always had a desire to help others in some capacity. I’m also creative, so as I learned more about skincare my passion grew and building my own beauty brand quickly became my life’s ambition.

 

What are some of your favourite products that you could not live without?

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Pro-Effect Luminescent Base, Smythson Notebook  

 

Why was it so important to have your skin care eco-friendly and organic? 

I care very much about the environment and feel a sense of duty to limit the effects my products have on the planet and its inhabitants, so I continuously look for ingredients that come from sustainable sources and when grown using local communities they are fully supported. 

Choosing the right skin care can be a difficult task. How do you stand out from others in the market?

Our products are effective, responsible and kind and don’t rely exclusively on the status 

 

With the Summer holiday period approaching, can you give our readers some advice for keeping skin healthy and hydrated during flights?

It may seem obvious but, drink plenty of water and keep your skincare simple, for example, my Micellar Water is the perfect in-flight companion as it provides optimum cleansing, exfoliation and makeup removal using just a cotton pad. 

 

You have used Rose Quartz in many of your products, why is this crystal so important? 

I have always had a connection with Rose Quartz beyond its tangible benefits. It’s illuminating, healing and provides positive energy, which is kinda my mantra – Love Light Energy 

 

What is your favourite Silou item?

I love my Cindy Bralette, it makes me feel so comfortable 

When you need to escape London, where is your choice of holiday? 

The South of France – it offers everything I need and more in a holiday. However, if it’s a holiday with friends then it has to be Ibiza 

Finally, what is the most popular treatment in your clinic? 

Repair, Recover, Renew It’s our signature facial completely tailored to our clients’ needs
