Personal trainer and mother-of-three says menopause pilates and budget DIY facials keep her youthful

MENOPAUSE PILATES

I had a hysterectomy in 2019, so was plunged straight into the menopause. One of the worst things has been achy joints. I rely on Pilates to build strength and flexibility without putting stress on the joints. I had been teaching it for 20 years but it’s a lifesaver now. The breathing exercises help anxiety too. I’ve set up an online platform, called Kali Pilates.

INSOMNIA BUSTERS

The menopause affected my sleep. So I take drops of Organic Royal Hemp Oil (£32.99, amazon.co.uk) under my tongue, to help me feel calm before bed. I then rub BetterYou Magnesium Sleep Spray (£12.99, hollandandbarrett.com) into the soles of my feet to relax my muscles. Plus, I have magnesium baths three times a week, using BetterYou’s Magnesium Flakes (£9.99).

HAIR-THICKENING TRICKS

When I get stressed, my hair falls out. It is fine and wispy. It got very bad when I lost my dad five years ago. I used to have hair extensions but now I only have a few in and take supplements, such as Nourkrin Woman Hair Nutrition (£99.99, hollandandbarrett.com) as well as IoniCell For Women (£20, victoriahealth.com).

BUDGET DIY FACIAL

I’ve had Botox in my forehead in the past but not since the pandemic started. Instead, I use the NuFace Mini Facial Toning Device (£167, cultbeauty.co.uk) three times a week for five minutes. It’s microcurrent tones the muscles in your face — and, after a year of use, I’ve noticed a real difference. It’s worth the investment.

MAGIC PRIMER

Every day, I apply ColoreScience Even Up Clinical Pigment Perfector with SPF 50 (£89.50, colorescienceuk.com). It’s tinted, giving a natural colour and smooths dark spots. It also contains sun protection. For going out, I wear MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation (£27, maccosmetics.co.uk) on top.
