TWO STEPS ROSY-GLOW
I diligently wear sunscreen. I use Heliocare cream SPF 50 (£ 17.50, skincity.co.uk) on my fair skin. But I do like a pink glow so I use a primer under my foundation: Blossom Color Beauty Glow Multi-tasking Primer (£ 29.95, beautyandtheboutique.com). I use organic Jojoba cold pressed oil as an alternative to moisturizer (£ 14.95, botanicals.co.uk) to keep my skin soft.
HOME MADE EXFOLIATOR
I mix a handful of ground almonds in a bowl of water for a nice, gritty peeling twice a week. A few times a year I go to facialist Diane Nivern for an AlumierMD Glow Peel (from around £ 80, dianenivern.com), followed by Dermalux Tri-Wave Therapy (£ 55 for a 30 minute treatment). It produces vitamin D and stimulates the production of collagen.

TRY AN AYURVEDIC DIET
I am a big fan of Ayurveda, an herbal based alternative medicine from the Indian subcontinent. I was introduced to it by my daughter Ilana, an Ayurvedic therapist (kshamming.com). Eating the right foods can help digestive problems and clear brain fog. My skin glows when I stick to the plan.
DAILY ECO TRAINING
I walk about five miles every day if I can. But I am also religious about waste collection. An advantage is that all the necessary bending over keeps my joints nice and smooth.
TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
Laughter, mental fitness and healthy competition contribute to a youthful outlook. While locking, I brushed up my bridge skills with the ibridge plus app (ibridgeplus.net). We also played online card games with friends. It makes us all crazy and we laugh until we cry.
