As a busy mum, the blonde star often leaves the house bare-faced. "Most days I wear no makeup, I’m too busy with the children and work projects and I’m renovating my house at the moment, but FLORENA has made me feel really confident about going make up free. When I do go out though I really like to go for it and get glammed up, I am a real girly girl."

And when it comes to her fave FLORENA products, it's all about skin prep. "I absolutely love the Fermented Skincare Milky Cleanser. I use this morning and night. It smells beautiful, perfect for my sensitive skin and removes eye makeup really well, but it’s also really hydrating and leaves my skin so soft to the touch."

She added: "I am also obsessed with the Illuminating Facial Oil too; it's a really silky formula, it smells so lovely and you can even see the petals in the oil! I use this every day and it’s a perfect primer for under makeup as it gives you a radiant glow."

On becoming confident in her own skin, Helen likes to embrace her natural beauty. "My main tip is less is more. I used to wear too much makeup when I was younger and I think I look my best when I use less and look more natural."
