EIGHT-HOUR HERBAL TEA
Every day, I drink eight cups of white or green tea — one each hour at work. It’s great for staying hydrated if you don’t like water.
Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants which can aid weight loss and lower cholesterol. I’ve been doing it for a decade, and love Tea of Life White Tea (£9, imperialteas.co.uk).
I hit the menopause at 47, three years after having my daughter, during a tough stage of parenting.
I wasn’t sleeping and lost my glow. Now I take Lumity Natural Anti-Ageing & Beauty Supplements (£90 for a month, lumity life.co.uk).
They contain vitamins C and E, omega 3s and amino acids, to nourish you from within. It’s pricey, but I’ve noticed a real difference in 18 months: my skin is plumper and my hair glossier.

MINI MORNING FACIAL
I’m older than most of the mums at school, but they can’t believe I’m over 50, and ask what I use on my skin. I swear by Studio 10 Miracle Effect Serum (£68, studio10beauty.com).
It’s designed for mature skin, so helps to reduce the visibility of age spots, pigmentation and fine lines. I apply it to damp skin and massage it in with a jade roller for ten minutes every day.
I never miss a daily spritz of Vitamin D Oral Spray (£8.45, betteryou.com). The spray gets into the bloodstream quicker than tablets and is easier to take.
We need the vitamin for a healthy immune system and joints, but produce less with age. The Boost B12 Oral Spray (£11.95) is also a great energy boost.
Plus, I use Magnesium Oil Original Spray (£12.20) on my body after a shower, to help me sleep better.
I can’t work out at the same intensity I did in my 20s. Now, I do short bursts for ten minutes, five days a week. I do a mix of weight exercises using multiple muscles. The moves flow into each other — from downward dog, to press-up, to plank.
I share my exercise and diet plans online to help other 40-plus women (404040plan.co.uk). I have so much energy and don’t feel my age.
