Glow & Tell: KATE FROM HANKER

www.bellamumma.com

THIS WEEK'S GLOW & TELL COMES FROM THE CEO and FOUNDER OF HANKER, {which you know is one of my fave websites}... I'm so chuffed that the very gorgeous and super-stylish Kate Evers took time out of busy schedule to share her beauty tips...

BEST BEAUTY ADVICE: Wear a great hat and sunglasses whenever you are outside and only play outdoors in Europe. The sun in the southern hemisphere is just not worth taking a risk with, whereas I always build up a nice soft tan on the Med without even noticing I am doing it. Of course sunscreen is a must wherever you are.

CAN'T-LIVE-WITHOUT PRODUCTS: Definitely Eve Lom cleanser. It's one of the few things that makes my {rather difficult and sensitive} skin happy and I love the ritual every evening with the muslin cloths. I don't believe in expensive moisturisers as they usually congest my skin and my very trusted dermatologist, Natasha Cook, told me they are a waste of money. She recommended I just use Cetaphil from my local pharmacy. This advice has probably saved me thousands of dollars so I am very grateful (though she has not yet persuaded me to drop my La Mer eye cream as I am irrationally convinced it works). I love to have simple signature scents for Winter and Summer. I am currently doing Miller Harris Citron Citron for Summer (lovely mandarin notes) and Edouard Flechier Une Rose for Winter (so nostalgic).

BEST TIME-SAVING BEAUTY TIP: I only use nail polish on my toes and just keep fingernails buffed and French cut. I would love to have glossy coloured nails, but to look good, fingernails really need to be done everyday and the reality is there are lots of things I would rather be doing than having a manicure. On toes I choose classic colours like Essie's Mademoiselle or Wicked. Essie is free of nasty chemicals and the shadeswork with whatever you're wearing.
