What are your top tips for achieving glowing skin?

Hydration from inside and out is one of the key elements for healthy, glowing skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water and nourish your skin with the right products. When it comes to face yoga and face massage, the most important thing is consistency.

What does the concept of ‘self-care’ mean to you?

Self-care means carving out time in the day for little rituals that nourish our body and mind. For example, taking your time to make a delicious cup of tea, or allocating five minutes in the evening to massaging your shoulders in bed.

How do you take care of your skin during the winter?

I up my intake of essential fatty acids, which can be supplemented by Omega 3 and 6 supplements, or by eating more oily fish and nuts. I also choose a richer moisturiser or oil in the colder months to protect from the elements. Oh, and SPF - always!

As someone who travels a lot, what are your beauty must-haves when on the road?

A good hand cream is a must. I love Almora Botanica’s Restorative Hand Cream - it is so hydrating and sinks into the skin beautifully, without leaving streaks or a greasy feeling. Also a facial mist or spray, for a quick boost of hydration, plus a good lip balm. 

What are some personal rituals that you use to unwind?

A warm bath, a hot cocoa mixed with adaptogenic powders, a slow self-massage, and maybe a guided meditation.

What does your beauty routine consist of?

I change my routine through the year according to the season and try to be observant and reactive to what my skin needs at different stages of the month. I always double cleanse in the evening, followed by a toner. Then it’s time for a serum, which really depends on what my skin needs that day - hydration, exfoliation, or brightening. After that, I apply my moisturiser or a face oil. SPF is the last step in my morning routine.

How does Face Yoga Fitness complement traditional skincare routines (and does it really work)?

To see real benefits, you need to be consistent with both. Face yoga and massage work with deeper layers of the skin and tissues, whereas skincare is a topical product. In combination, they not only improve your skin whilst toning and sculpting, but also release tension.

What advice do you have for beginners looking to start a Face Yoga Fitness practice?

Just begin. That’s the hardest part! Try to include it into your skincare application - morning or evening - and then it will become a natural part of your daily routine. Make it a habit, rather than a special treat.

Can you share any success stories from individuals who have seen significant improvements in their skin through a consistent Face Yoga Fitness practice?

I have a lot of followers and clients that have been practising with me for years. The benefits range from the obvious - improved lines, wrinkles, and sculpted jawlines - to improved mental health and wellbeing. Creating small rituals like face yoga can boost your mood, give you purpose when you struggle to find one. They also nourish the feeling of self-love and appreciation for your body.
