"When heading into a busy time like London Fashion Week, I always drink Skinade because it boosts collagen and prevents anti-aging by providing your skin with the additional vitamins it needs to be in a good place.

"I love to keep make up light and fresh during fashion week, as you want it to be undetectable while making you look gorgeous. I recommend the Burberry contour pen for effortless sculpting of the face and the Burberry BB Cream as it is super moisturising and evens out the complexion but you can still feel the skin underneath.

"I always have Burberry First Kiss in my hand bag during Fashion Week as it super easy to apply. It has a cooling ceramic tip and is super hydrating on the lips, while giving a soft flush of colour, or no colour at all plus it isn’t sticky.

"When you’re getting home late and running out the door early, it’s important to have a good bedtime routine in place. I love Aromatherapy Associates De Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil, put it on over your shoulders for eight minutes and then wash it off, it goes straight into your blood stream and helps you sleep really soundly. Or I’ll use a mask like the SK-II hydrating masks. It really hydrates the skin, leave it on for 10 minutes before bed.

"When you’re racing between back to back events it’s important to make sure your skin is in a good place before applying your make up. I massage Estee Lauder’s Take it Away cream cleanser into the skin to gently exfoliate and remove any dead skin cells. I follow by removing the cleanser with water on cotton pads then mist Shu Uemura’s Deepsea Facial Mist all over the face to tone and eliminate impurities. My favourite moisturiser is Creme de La Mer’s The Moisturising Lotion, this is good for all skin types and provides the perfect texture for makeup application."
