  Bad hair-day secret: “I’ll stick on my Vetements cap or I will scrape hair back into a low bun.”

Skincare routine: “In the morning I cleanse with Malin & Goetz’s grapefruit face cleanser (Dhs121), followed by a toner and a hydrating serum.  I moisturise with La Mer Moisturising Soft Cream (Dhs693) and lastly I apply an oil. In the evening I follow the same routine but I may add Obagi360 Retinol 0.5 (Dhs261) depending on my current skin condition.”

Flight essentials: “Make-up wipes, Origins Overnight Hydrating Mask (Dhs95) and a handy miniature pot that I top up with moisturising cream every time I travel.”
