Andrea McLean is all smiles as she heads to the Loose Women studio wearing zero makeup

Andrea McLean smiled for the cameras as she arrived for Loose Women with noticeably bright and glowing skin. This isn't the first time the 48-year-old has been seen bare-faced, regularly posting post-gym selfies to her 166k followers on Instagram. 

The TV personality looked beautiful in a recent post-workout video that she posted online for Positive Thinking Day, writing to fans: "I head to the gym when I feel myself starting to feel anxious or stressed, plug in the headphones and listen to something positive to distract my brain from its spiralling thoughts."

The video saw the mother-of-two with slicked back hair and rosy cheeks speaking to followers about her love of exercise, writing in the caption: "I go on a treadmill, or a bike or do weights and just LOSE MYSELF for a while. It works for me. The negative chatter stops, my toddler-like brain latches on to something interesting rather than something negative, I leave feeling lighter in my head."

Andrea also shared another fresh-faced picture online last week from her old school days. The post was in aid of an anti-bullying campaign, Back2School, and showed a youthful looking Andrea grinning from ear-to-ear with a head full of curls. The sweet school photo aimed to give advice to youngsters heading back to school in September and offer them support. 

The Loose Women host has since swapped her perm for bouncy tape-in extensions, which she had done by Richard Ward - a favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex. The hair makeover created a more voluminous look for Andrea which she had wanted after losing "fullness" in her brunette locks during the menopause. The results looked gorgeous, with the TV star taking to Instagram to thank her hairdresser for giving her back a "full head of shiny hair."
