It does happen to us all that ever so slow road to getting older but we can either choose to embrace it, nurture it or desperately try and stop it. We talk beauty, relaxation, non-invasive treatments and Broadchurch in our ‘Totally Exclusive Interview’ with beautiful actress, Sarah Parish
What is she working on now?
I’ve currently just finished filming series 6 of sky comedy Trollied which will air at the end of October. I’m now presently filming the final series of Broadchurch, which finishes at the end of October and will air in January 2017. I’m very excited to also appear in The Collection, which is showing now on Amazon Prime on Friday nights. All in all I’ve been quite busy! Which is great for the soul but means I have limited time to spend on health and beauty so I need things that work fast!
What are your thoughts on Ageing?
Unfortunately it happens to us all! I try to see it as a blessing, as it means we are still alive! I am very happy with the way I look as I embrace things like laughter lines, and I find as I am getting older if I feel good on the inside I look better on the outside, so exercise and nutrition are a huge part of my beauty regime. You cannot stop the ageing process but you can make the best of what you’ve been given, and there are now so many non-invasive treatments out there that are very effective without altering my appearance, I am only interested in enhancing my natural look.
What’s your favourite way to relax?
My favourite ways to relax are walking the dogs, reading, and sleeping – I try to get at least 8-9 hours sleep every night as it make me feel so much more alive and really helps my skin. I am passionate about yoga and exercise in general and a
lso find working out very relaxing. We are lucky to live in a very beautiful part of the country, in Hampshire, and there’s nothing better than a nice long walk there by the river with my husband, daughter and our two dogs to blow the cobwebs away.
Favourite beauty products?
I am totally addicted to Face Matters Evening Elixir, which is a combination of Botanical Oils and Silica Gel and which makes my skin look and feel incredible – I’ve never found anything else that comes close. Every morning I use Dr Levy Booster Cream, which contains Argan Oil – it really works for my skin and feels like it penetrates the layers of my skin to give me a very moisturised feeling. I cleanse with Face Matters Anytime Cleanse, again it’s made with Botanical oils, smells amazing and stops my skin getting clogged up, which is so important with the amount of make-up I have to wear on set days!
The LA Facial from LA Beautiful is amazing for smoothing wrinkles and tightening skin, what that machine does in an hour is incredible! It’s available on Harley Street and in salons nationwide. For body treatments the LA Tummy Tighten is a great treatment for firming up those parts of the body that sometimes exercise can’t reach, and it gets me
beach body ready (as much as is possible!). For IPL I recommend Michael Prager on Harley Street, he is amazing, I do have some sun damage and this treatment gets my skin ready for filming.
