Actress Jessica Ellerby shares her beauty secrets

What is your morning beauty routine?
I wash my face with Origins Checks and Balances Cleansing face wash and then, particularly if it’s winter, or my skin is a little dry, I use a good quality organic coconut oil (normally whichever one’s on sale in a health food shop) all over my face and neck (and body!). After letting that settle I use Origins ‘Nightamins’. It’s meant for night time, but my skin gets really dry and it just works for me!
What perfume do you wear?
Chloe, original. I love it – it’s so fresh and clean.
What is your hero beauty product?
Elizabeth Arden 8 hr cream. I don’t leave the house without it!
How do you keep fit?
I do yoga almost everyday (Yin and Vinyasa) and run 1-2 times a week. I also love to dance – there’s an amazing Zumba class round the corner from me, and if I can get to that I’m a happy lady.
Who does your hair?
Well, my Mum is a hairdresser so always did my hair up until a few years ago (she lives abroad so logistically it was a bit of a nightmare) but finding someone who lived up to her standard took a while. Now I’ve found two amazing ladies, both at John Frieda – Frankie does my colour and Nadia cuts it. They’re ace.
What is in your make up bag?
The basics! I keep my make up fairly minimal and natural: Foundation, MAC blusher, eye brow powder and Benefit mascara, and the 8 hr cream obviously!
My best beauty advice is:
Sleep 8-9hrs a night and drink 2-3 litres of water a day. There’s no cream that’ll fix you, you gotta do the basics.
What is your ‘must have’ product on set?
‘They’re Real’ Benefit mascara.
How do you relax?
I find city life quite stressful so day to day I meditate twice a day and practice yoga. Then a good cup of tea and a snuggle on the sofa tends to do it. And as a treat, a massage. If I had all the money in the world I’d have one a week – they are absolutely life changing for me.
