HAUTE MAMA: Clio Wood of &Breathe

Photo by Rebelandrosephotography.com

Clio Wood is one of those women who has used her experience as a new mum to help other women enjoy it. The &Breathe Postnatal retreats she began in 2015 combine fitness classes, healthy food and pampering treatments with your baby in tow, at the French manoir Clio owns with her husband (and former school friend of mine!). She is now launching the London branch of this genius concept, with mini day-long retreats and workshops closer to home. Here, she shares the products she swears by for her #MUMFACE. GT

“Since becoming a mum I’ve definitely noticed my laughter lines and wrinkles increasing so it’s given me a kick up the bum to take care of my skin.  I also make sure to always moisturise my tummy too – all through my pregnancy and ever since.  Since it was kind enough to expand with a baby and shrank back down again without complaint, it’s my way of saying thank you to it! My go-to pot of goodness is MOA’s Green Balm – which has a multitude of uses, from lip balm, to stretch mark cream, make up remover, to soothing eczema and sore noses as also for cold sores, small cuts and even baby bottom cream!  It’s perfect to just chuck in your bag and take with you wherever you go.
I rarely wear make up, but I try to wear SPF and I’ve just recently discovered Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream SPF50 Sun Defence, which is super light and can double as a moisturiser if you’re pushed for time, like me.
When I get the chance to sit down and have a face-mask night (Must. Do. More. Often.) an AMAZING and good value is Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque.  My skin is always utterly rejuvenated afterwards.”
