What your skincare routine?

I am a bit weird about my skincare and cleanse my face 3 times a session twice a day!

On my face I use Neutrogena Hydrating Cleansing Wipes, followed by Neutrogena Spot Stress Control Facial Scrub, followed by Boots Tea Tree Foaming Wash. During the day I apply Nivea Visage Oil Free Moisturising Fluid, then Clinique Super Defense. In the evening I use Boots Tea Tree Moisturising Overnight Gel. On my body I use Dove Beauty Body Lotion and shea butter on any really dry bits. At night I use Re-Gen Oil.

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

I couldn’t live without good old shea butter. My mum gets it in its purest form from Ghana and it’s amazing. I sometimes get dry patches on my face and use it on them as well as on eczema. It’s also great as a lip balm, a scalp moisturiser, softening heels and great on knees and elbows. It’s the best thing ever!

Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?

At the moment I am loving Rihanna’s look. She isn’t afraid of trying new things and knows what works for her. She has a great figure and always exudes confidence – I wish I could do that!
