Pro Picks: Yasemin Trollope


Yasemin Trollope is a beauty editor and holistic health coach. You'll find more of her in Good Health magazine, and at BodyLove Bootcamp. As a health and wellness coach and new mum to a beautiful boy, natural alternatives are important to her lifestyle, and we couldn't wait to find out which are her top picks from Beautiful Because.

1. Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream

Why I love: It's a life-saver on any kind of skin dryness. If my son gets even the slightest hint of redness on his cheeks or bum, I whip this out and it's gone within the day. Plus, I love using it on my cuticles and lips. It's amazing!

Top Tip: Sometimes I dab it on my cheekbones and eyelids for a glossy, dewy finish to my makeup.

2. Eco Tan Invisible Tan

Why I love: As the sun begins to shine I always need a little helping hand feeling comfortable in short hemlines again. Cue in: fake tan. This option is a lovely bronze shade and dries quickly on the skin.

Top Tip: My application skills are very hit and miss, so I use a mitt to help make the process even and easy.

3.WOTNOT Natural Sunscreen SPF 30

Why I love: It's natural, broad spectrum and safe to use on my 1-year-old. What's not to love?

Top Tip: Apply it 10-20 minutes before going outside to make sure it's well absorbed. Also, double cleanse your face after each use as the thicker nature of the natural formula really stays put.

4. Acure 100% Certified Organic Argan Oil

Why I love: I love the idea of rosehip oil but I often find if I use too much of it my skin becomes irritated, so I've switched to argan oil instead. It's much gentler on the skin but gives comparable results, leaving my skin soft, supple and super dewy.

Top Tip: Massage it into skin to help boost circulation. It also makes a great hair mask, too.
