I've long been an advocate of the ancient Indian Ayurvedic philosophy.
Working in the the wellness/skincare industry for many years now I am regularly asked for recommendations on where to go for the best facial in Dublin, London or Hong Kong..
I'm lucky enough to have been blessed with great genes so have rarely suffered any disturbing skin issues or overt sensitivity, but know many others aren't quite so fortunate.

My go-to foods for nourished skin during my middle years
Below are just a few of my favourites, all made for giving this Christmas
'We first met Kate after launching Modern Botany and found a lot of synergies from the get-go. Kate has extensive technical and working knowledge in the natural product field particularly within the nutritional science arena and we have greatly enjoyed working together on a few projects. She has particular expertise on current and up-coming wellness and lifestyle trends and really has her finger on the pulse in this space which she is constantly researching.'
‘Kate is one of my “north stars” when it comes to trends & developments in the evolving world of spa & wellness. Her in-depth knowledge from skincare, nutrition to yoga as well as understanding what today’s conscious consumers are looking for is always on point. Kate has incredible talent to impart wisdom and information in such an authentic manner , every time I read GLOW I feel as if I’m at the kitchen counter and she is sharing a solution for my “in the moment” need.’
'I count myself very lucky that Kate wandered into our Galway shop one summer’s day many years ago. However, knowing Kate now, it’s no surprise that she visited us. Kate has a very curious and open mind which leads her to discover people, products and brands for herself, always with a unique and informed point of view.’
‘We found particular resonance with Kate on our shared values of wellness and our belief that authentic beauty is from within with the focus always being on Skin Health and not an abstract and forever moving notion of what beauty constitutes. In a nutshell, she is the Go-To for the most up to date and accurate Global info you will ever need regarding lifestyle trends in the natural nutritional and skin health space.’
‘We have had the privilege of working with Kate a few years. She has a wonderful sensitivity that allows her to write beautifully and from the heart. Her professional training as a Dietician and her depth of experience in the health and wellness industry means that Kate brings a vast amount of knowledge to every story. We love that Kate always keeps it real, distilling the fact from the fiction, and does so with such wonderful grace and humour. Kate always gets right to the nub of the story and writes in a way that we can all trust and enjoy.’
‘I greatly admire the rigour of Kate’s work which, to me, is an extension of her training as both a journalist and scientist. Her objective approach mixed with her distinctive writing style is the voice that the beauty/wellness industry badly needs. When she gives her opinion…I listen.'
