I don’t feel awake until I’ve washed my face. I love Suqqu facial cleansing soap for the morning – it cleans my skin without drying it out.

There’s something very old-school and comforting about lathering up soap on my face; harkens back to the age before fancy pump-action cleansing gels and the like. Although, when I was flying to Australia for my first movie when I was 16 I used the soap in the plane loo and promptly came out in an angry red rash all over my face! I never use normal soap on my face, but there are some specific ones like Suqqu’s, which are wonderful.

Olay Total Effects Firming Night Cream

I still use Olay moisturiser – and because I’m in my 30s I’ve upgraded to the Total Effects moisturiser. It’s amazing how such an affordable cream can be so effective and reliable. My Mum used Olay when I was little and the smell, the packaging reminds me of her. She has the most beautiful skin, so I don’t need much more convincing than that!

Wild Rose Beauty Balm

In the evening if I’ve worn red carpet make up then I definitely use a cream cleanser. Neal’s Yard Rose Beauty Balm is a great make up remover, also Taer Icelandic, and both can be removed with a warm wet flannel. I follow this with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant – such a great product, the granules allow for deep cleansing and the paste consistency is very mild and nurturing for the skin.  After this I use Olay’s Total Effects Night Cream.
