"As soon as the cold weather starts and the central heating goes on, my mantra is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise," the mum-of-one shared a few years ago. Her go-to moisuriser? A simple pot of Astral, retailing for £4.

"I like affordable skincare, you don't have to spend a fortune if you know something does the job well,” she previously shared. “I carry a travel-size pot of Astral around in my handbag, so I can pop it out and reapply it whenever my skin starts to feel taut and dry."

Ruth also explained that she takes the time to moisturise all of her body – including hands, elbows and even her feet: "I always moisturise my elbows and hands each night before bed. It's something my mum always did. I always remember her putting her hand cream on her elbows."

And she gives her feet an overnight moisture treat by using a foot file, covering them in Astral then wearing cotton socks over the top.

These aren't the only simple beauty tricks we’re stealing from Ruth. During a segment with Lisa Snowdon on This Morning, Ruth told Lisa and her husband Eamonn Holmes live on air that she uses a Compeed Anti-Blister Stick to beat the pain from wearing new shoes.

She said: "You know when you've been wearing socks and boots and things, and suddenly you're in bare feet with new shoes you just get one of these - it's a blister stick. I rub this where I always know I get a blister - normally on my heel and my little toe when it's rubbing.

“Or I put sandals on, wear them for about half an hour and you can feel a 'uh oh' and then you just get your blister stick and it just lubricates your skin and gives it a film of grease I suppose and it stops it blistering."
