Book Excerpt - FACE VALUE

The simple do-it-yourself treatments in Face Value target our greatest skin concerns such as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving firmness and elasticity and protecting skin from damaging free radicals.)

Every formula contains high doses of the most powerful ingredients such as Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Retin A and potent antioxidants used in the most expensive creams on the market.)

All are touted as anti-aging, stimulating skin cell regeneration and improving the texture of your skin. The good news is that most of it can be found in your own kitchen!)

In more than 30 years of dealing with faces every day, I worked across the globe in the fashion and beauty industry. I could see that the daily stresses of life show up on our faces, and have a profound effect on the way skin visibly ages, even on supermodels.)

With this in mind I put together Face Value; a complete skincare manual that offers real solutions and real choices that really work! Each of these treatments have been tried and tested by people from the four corners of the world and I have used them in my career for years with great success.)

Whether it is a treatment full of firming and plumping hydrators or smoothing exfoliators, these formulas will feed your skin from the outside in, restoring radiance and stimulating collagen production. With Face Value you can create a personalised plan for the issues that concern you most; whether it is saying ‘bye bye’ to age spots, fine lines, blemishes, sun damaged skin or uneven pigmentation.)

Without a doubt our faces say so much more about us than what we look like. They are a pure reflection of our health, vitality and spirit. Through my years of experience in the fashion industry.

I have come to believe that B.E.A.U.T.Y. is based on the principles of …

Balance, Enthusiasm, Acceptance, Understanding,Trust & You I believe that:

Balance in our lives unfolds from the inside out.

Enthusiasm lies within the way we think and feel about ourselves.

Acceptance is the path to making peace with ourselves and others.

Understanding ourselves gives us clarity and wisdom to know what we want, and importantly, what we don’t.

Trust attunes our heart and mind so we can nurture spontaneity and adventure in our lives, and know that…

You have what it takes to create the life and love you know you deserve and to never settle for anything less.

I took every photograph in this book as an expression of my belief that as in nature, where every flower is different from the next, we are a living embodiment that beauty is individual.

While Face Value is about learning to nurture your face and your body with great natural products that work, it is also about knowing that the beauty we find outside ourselves is a very small aspect of what lies within.

I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with people who have helped me understand this; each in their own way showing me that the essence of our beauty lies not in our physical characteristics alone, but in the heart of our character.

While I have seen supermodels in Paris dressed in Chanel and women in India dressed in rags, the one truth that reveals their beauty, regardless of who they are, is the truth of their smile.

So whether you are indulging in a skin rejuvenating bath or giving yourself a three-minute facial – Enjoy! After all, B.E.A.U.T.Y. is about good living and great loving, it is about feeling more, healing more, living more and loving more.

Author Interview


 Stress plays a large part in the way we age. If you are stressed, so is your skin.

 But skin stress comes in a number of different forms.

 Something that is not commonly understood is that our skin is impacted on a daily basis by environmental toxins and lifestyle elements that age it prematurely.

 Environmental elements that damage the skin include exposure to sun, pollution, heating and cooling.

 Lifestyle elements that damage the skin include the chemicals in food, the toxins in household products, the chemicals in personal care products, (such as shampoo and soap), smoking, alcohol and sugar consumption.

And then there is the stress we feel that causes the stress hormone cortisol to flood through our bodies, creating skin stress and premature skin aging if our stress levels remain constantly high. Feeling stressed is directly linked to collagen damage and skin aging, which is why I call cortisol the wrinkle-causing hormone and explains why we ultimately cannot separate how we look from how we feel.

 In combination, all of these elements stress the skin, causing it to age prematurely.



 To keep ourselves looking our best over time we need to de-stress the skin on a daily basis so it ages less! This can be done by eating skin boosting vitamins and minerals and topically feeding the skin the nutrients it needs to counteract skin stress and rebuild and protect collagen and elastin, which keeps the skin looking young and vital.

 We also need to do everything we can to feel good on a daily basis, as good feelings support great looking skin. When we feel good we look good!



 Research has shown that nutrients can be absorbed effectively through the skin via topical treatments. This means that your beauty routine will not only give you great skin, but can assist in absorbing some of the necessary nutrients for overall health.

 Not surprisingly many foods contain the key regenerative ingredients found in the most expensive skin creams. These include Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Retin A, powerful antioxidants, collagen producing Vitamin C and skin healing Vitamin E.

 So while nutrition fuels, transforms and can heal our bodies, choosing what we use topically can do the same for our skin.

 This recipe from Face Value is a great one for rebooting your skin and protecting it against premature skin aging.



 The essence of beauty is not something that we find, it is something that we experience through the way we live, love, think and feel.

Banana, lemon and grape recharging age treatment

 ·         Take several seedless grapes, cut in half and rub over the entire face. Let it dry.

 ·         Mash a quarter of a banana until very creamy and squeeze half a lemon into the paste. Mix well, spread over the face and leave for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water, followed by a dash of cold.

 ·         Afterwards apply moisturiser to damp skin.

 THE SKIN SECRET: This secret delivers a powerful skin regeneration treatment through Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Vitamin C and antioxidants, which assist in the stimulation of collagen production.



The antioxidants and nutrients in bananas help to restore collagen in your skin. They also have antibacterial properties and can be applied to the face mashed with lemon (stops the banana going brown) or with yoghurt, honey, egg or milk for a range of benefits that assist in maintaining the health of the skin.



Grapes are high in AHA (skin renewal) and Vitamin C (collagen building) so they are powerful for use as a skin exfoliant, for oil reduction on the skin.



Lemons are rich in AHA and Vitamin C (collagen building) and a range of nutrients that has ensured its use as a rejuvenating beauty product for hundreds of years. Its versatility as a topical ingredient means it can be used in cleansers, toners, skin lighteners, face masks and scrubs. It is naturally antiseptic and has been used successfully to treat fine lines, scars and pigmentation of every kind.



 The concept of beauty has become stressful. There is too much pressure placed on how we must look and not enough on how we feel in our own skin.

 Real beauty comes from within and while we all want to look our best, what we bring to the world is far greater than how we look.

 I get enormous amounts of feedback on the quotes. People tell me that they love the information that the books provide and the results they get, but they also enjoy a positive message or affirmation about where our real beauty comes from.

 This is why whenever I am sharing knowledge on how to counteract premature aging and transform skin, I think it is important to keep in mind that the best parts of who we are have nothing to do with how we look. This takes the pressure off and enables people to enjoy the truth beauty and who they are.

 The essence of our beauty does not lie in our physical characteristics

but in the heart of our character.

To receive a free copy of STOP SKIN AGING PREMATURELY which includes a list of the most powerful cortisol lowering foods go to:



While all ingredients are skin-friendly, everyone has unique skin that reacts differently. It is recommended with all treatments that a patch test be performed on a small non-sensitive area of skin, such as your hand, prior to using. If redness, a rash or any form of irritation occurs, wash off immediately and discontinue use.


As a general rule, ensure that your work area and utensils are clean before preparing any treatments, and that ingredients are fresh and your hands are washed. This will ensure the freshness and quality of each treatment.


Please note that treatments that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Retinol (Vitamin A) can cause the skin to be sun sensitive, so always apply sun protection.
