If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.

 

PROBIOTICS & PREBIOTICS

Probiotics and prebiotics work together to take care of your gut and looking after your gut is vital if you want to look after your skin. With slight differences, prebiotics are a special form of dietary fiber that act as a fertilizer for the good bacteria in the gut, essentially sewing the seeds for healthy bacteria to expand within the gut. Whereas probiotics work as live bacteria and together (within a stabilised environment) they ensure the restoration of health for the gut microbiome.

Essentially a healthy gut aligns with healthy skin, if the gut is inflamed this can trigger an inflammation in the skin.

DAIRY-FREE OPTIONS

Many people come across complications when it comes to dairy, especially milk as it can trigger breakouts and in worse cases acne. Opt for a non-dairy alternative when it comes to milk. It has been proven that not all dairy triggers acne, there has been an association between milk, ice cream and breakouts but very little triggers when implementing yoghurt and cheese.

ANTIOXIDANTS

Considered the fountain of youth, antioxidants in foods such as berries ( blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, goji berries) are packed with nutrients like antioxidants. Antioxidants are inflammatories that support and encourage the body’s healing process as well as protect against free radical damage.

VEGATABLE GREENS

Implementing as much greens into your diet is a great and targeted way of getting extra antioxidants into the skin especially for promoting healthy skin cells. Encouraging an increased level of vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E – they combine to combat against dry and irritated skin, supports against sun damage and evens skin tone and helps to fight against inflammation.

CITRUS FOODS

Helping to feel less bloated, citrus foods help to support collagen and improve the skin’s firmness.

LOW-GLYCEMIC INDEX FOODS

A rating system for foods containing carbohydrates, GI shows how quickly food affects your blood sugar levels and how quickly it digests within the body. Swapping high GI foods ( refined carbs, white pasta, white bread) for low GI foods such as chicken, vegatables and quinoa will actually help to stabilise the skin cells and clear up any breakouts.

OILS

Oils have proven benefits both topically and ingested through foods. High-quality and organic oils have proven benefits to serve the desired nutrient benefits to the skin and that includes the fatty acids and vitamin E.

FISH

Packed with fatty acids such as omega 3s and omega 6s, fish is one of the most essential foods that benefit the skin and health. Retaining the skin’s natural oil barrier, combatting dryness and evening out complexions, increasing the amount of fish in the diet will help to restore the skin’s health.
