It’s crazy! Cat Deeley is 36! Here are some of her incredible beauty tips:
I start the day with hot water and lemon.
I don’t crave junk food.
Drink lots of water.
I think if you look after yourself on a regular basis, and do the prep beforehand, you don’t need to put lots of effort into looking good. It’s about finding the right balance – if you have a good diet, drink lots of water, exercise regularly and sleep, you won’t look bad on a regular basis. Then you can afford the occasional naughty slip up once in a while, going out and having a delicious glass of wine with friends, having a great laugh and chat then realizing its 2am isn’t so bad – you’ve put in the hard work!
Don’t mention your flaws. People won’t notice them if you don’t point them out! I went to the US at a point in my life when I was feeling confident with who I was and what I looked like. I knew what I believed in so I wouldn’t change myself for US TV.
‘I love a great massage!’ I have a lovely lady who comes round to my house. Her name is Frieda and she’s only a tiny, slip of a thing and a bit of a hippie but I swear the moment I lie face-down on the bed, she turns into a 6ft 5 ins bearded German because she is literally so strong! Frieda gives me a deep tissue massage for two hours, then she goes, I put on a robe, watch a movie and I crawl into bed. Bliss.
Sleep is my biggest beauty secret.
Grace Kelly is my style icon. There’s one particular photo of her that stands out for me. In it she’s coming up out of the water, and all you can see is her face and her hair is slicked back with droplets of water on her skin and she has no make-up on and her face is just exquisite.
Tara Lee introduced me to the wonderful world of yoga 10 years ago…I couldn’t even touch my toes,” admits Cat. “I’ve been hooked ever since. Like every woman, sometimes it’s hard to steal even 30 minutes for myself. I’m constantly traveling and juggling schedules. But with her yoga DVD even I can find some ‘me time’ to focus my mind, reset my body and just breathe!
My secret is to have regular beauty treatments then I can be out the door in 5 minutes. I get my hair coloured, have regular massages, eyebrow shaping and get my eyelashes tinted. Then, all I have to do is put on some gloss, a bit of blush and I’m ready to go!
Rather than spending a fortune on a dress I might only wear three times, I like to splurge on my hair as it’s always on show.
