Nathalie Eleni Bouziotas You will never find a more enthusiastic, knowledgeable and passionate facialist.

-Fitness routine

Bootcamp Pilates – reformer pilates class in London once a week, Barre Core – once a week, Running 30 mins followed by 15mins of biceps/triceps followed by 30mins lunges/squats/deadlifts – this works for my body shape – 3 times a week, I need to train 5 times a week as it really helps my mind stay focused.

-Skin treatment

Once every 2 weeks I treat myself to a light peel that stimulates cell regeneration. Peptides and vitamins are infused in the skin. It is very anti ageing and helps with spots, fine lines and pigmentation. Makes my skin glow. My facialist Nathalie Eleni creates the perfect treatment for my skin.

-Key to feeling beautiful?

Meditating twice a day keeps my stress levels low and honestly, keeping healthy just makes all the difference to not being lethargic. That honestly, is what makes me feel beautiful.
