Who are you and what do you do?
I’m a beauty journalist, broadcaster, diversity advocate and I have been in the industry for 20 years. When it comes to beauty I really believe it's about connecting to your spirit as well as your body and hair. Beauty for me is all about everyone being able to come to the party, it's about making you feel connected and glowy from the inside. Your skin is a mirror to your soul, when you feel stressed, tired or anxious it shows. Skincare is self care and the more you can be nourishing, gentle and kind to your skin is how you should be to yourself.
What do you love about REN?
I have loved REN for decades since it first launched. My skin can sometimes be sensitive, but REN has never irritated it, and I love that REN leaves my skin happy, healthy and soothed. The fact that the powerful formulations give real results and it’s a pleasure to use means it's always in my beauty cupboard.
Why did you choose these products for your kit?
I chose Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic as it's super-easy to use, you see results almost immediately but it’s not scary for those who want to dip their toe into glow for the first time. I chose Overnight Glow Dark Spot Sleeping Cream because hyperpigmentation is a massive issue for me much more than lines and wrinkles. It’s really targeted for my hyperpigmentation, and this product is all about brightening not lightening. Lastly, I picked Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream because I love the texture. It’s not too thick or heavy for my dehydrated combination skin type, so it’s a daily staple for me.
What does beauty mean to you?
It’s about the transformative power of beauty, loving yourself, healing and taking care of yourself.
Having spent two decades championing it, what does diversity in beauty mean to you?
Diversity in beauty means that everybody feels seen, valued and everybody has choice, which would seem very basic but it is not a reality for millions of people around the world.
