Find out the top beauty tips of health and wellness guru Gwen, as she takes us through her beauty regime, and secrets to success.
Simplicity Is Key
“I’m quite a tomboy at heart. On a normal day I don’t wear any makeup, but if I have a dinner in the evening I’ll put on some mascara and a little cheek color. My hair is very thick and wavy, so when it’s damp and drying I take it in sections and twist it to encourage the wave, but not the volume.
Make Your Water Smart
“I drink so much water and always have, but I’m always dehydrated. I’ve been doing research about mineralizing water and adding Himalayan sea salt to it to help with absorption. It doesn’t taste amazing, but it really mineralizes the water and makes a big difference.”
Sweat It Out
“When there’s travel involved and you’re out of your routine, in a different time zone, it really affects your skin—you start to see everything on your face. When I land after a long flight, if there’s a pool at the hotel I’ll swim and do cardio, then take a hot steam or sit in a sauna and that really sorts me out. [Before I get in the sauna] I’ll put oil in my hair, pin it up, and get in; then I’ll shampoo it out after. I always have a bottle of this oil. I use it as a face oil, on the ends of my hair, and as a body oil if I’m really dry.”
Feel Good, Look Good
“For me, exercise is a really big part of feeling and looking good: doing cardiovascular exercise every day and having a big sweat five days a week. I always think, ‘How can I optimize how I feel internally?’ I have a little infrared sauna at my house that’s amazing. I try to do it three times a week—it’s a huge detoxifier and definitely a beauty trick. The lower the toxic load you’re carrying, the better you feel and the better you look. I also think it’s really important to be surrounded by people you really love who inspire you. Then you feel happy and content and beautiful, even if you have wrinkles.”
