5 MINUTES WITH NATURAL BEAUTY, MELA PURDIE: DESIGNER RENOWNED FOR HER COVETED LUXURY BASICS
I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT … a good body cream. Working and traveling in air-conditioned environments requires plenty of moisturiser.
I RELAX BY … leaving work at the office and cooking to music.
I LIKE TO … entertain. Good conversation and a good laugh are positive and stimulating for your body and soul.
I THINK BEAUTY IS … from within, a content mind will show on your face.
MY FRIDGE USUALLY CONTAINS … plenty of healthy fruit and vegetables but I still have a weakness for cheese, pate and champagne.
MY EXERCISE ROUTINE IS … reliant on time. I find it easiest to keep an appointment with a personal trainer twice a week and try to walk as much as possible.
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … a long relaxing bath and a good night’s sleep is the best remedy for natural beauty.
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … to drink plenty of water and allow yourself a few days every week to cut back on heavy meals and alcohol.
