Beauty | Vitamin C

Long hard winters can ravage skin complexions. Central heating, cold winds and lack of sunlight can make our skin look dull and grey.  But what can we do to help combat these?  And give skin a glowing boost.

Vitamin C is one of the most important steps in my own skincare regime. This powerful antioxidant fights against pigmentation (dark sun spots), free radicals and can reduce acne scarring and melasma.

We are really into foraging, we love seasonality and what the local environment has to offer. We like that you can have a little walk along a canal or in the countryside and pick up a few things that nature has scattered and make something at the end of the day that will remind you of that time in nature.

At the moment I’m living in Brixton, where I’ve been on and off for about five years and spend most of my time in Brockwell park, which I absolutely love but really I still like to tell myself that I live on the Isle of Wight (where I grew up). I try to split my time between the two as I go a bit mad if I’m without the countryside for too long and my family still lives down there so it’s lovely to go back regularly.
