Lorraine you always look flawless, which three beauty items could you not live without?

What’s your skincare regime, and does this differ morning to night?
At the moment my skincare regime differs each week as I’m road-testing lots of beauty products. This year I’ve used a lot of Ren and Dr Hauschka products. My routine doesn’t differ morning to evening, but I do use day and night moisturisers. I begin by cleansing with Ren Evercalm milk, followed by their gel. In the morning I moisturise with Dr Hauschka regenerating day cream, and in the evening I use Ren V-Cense revitalising night cream. In the evening, I’ll also sometimes use Dr Hauschka’s regenerating serum.
What’s your biggest beauty faux pas?
Falling asleep with my make-up on time and time again. I also never seem to cleanse my neck enough, it gets forgotten a lot!
What’s been your most extravagant beauty splurge?
Crème de la Mer moisturising cream.
When, and what, was your last beauty treatment?
A full monty bikini wax! And before that, an oxygen facial at Bliss spa in Chelsea which has now sadly closed down.
What’s your best beauty tip or trick to share with the readers of You Glow Girl?
Use products with little or no nasties in them. Try to avoid damaging and drying chemicals.
Who is your beauty idol?
Oprah and Viola Davis.
How do you motivate yourself?
I get fidgety and start to feel down if I’m not on the go. I also have motivational messages pop up on my phone. I put them in my diary to remind myself of these thoughts throughout the day.
What do you do to cheer yourself up?
Go to the gym. Watch Netflix. Eat a healthy meal. Stroke the dog. Meditate.
What makes you happy?
Letting myself feel whatever I am feeling and not fighting it. Good friends, family and food.
What makes you angry?
How do you make an entrance at a party?
Quietly. I like to stick to the back and the sides of a room!
