Each fortnight, Stephanie Darling gets inside the head of an industry expert or media personality. This week, she talks to Emma Lewisham. Her eponymous natural skincare brand, based on clean and green ingredients, gained cult status overnight. It was born after she lost her mother to breast cancer, which caused a seismic shift in the ingredients she put on her face and on her plate.
What I’m loving right now Listening to the BBC’s Desert Island Discs. They are so interesting and inspiring. I loved the episodes with Sophia Loren and Yoko Ono.
Beauty icon Amal Clooney. She’s sophisticated, smart and has had an incredible impact on the world.
The rule I live by Give more than you take and ensure people’s lives are better for you being in them.
Top beauty tip My grandmother taught me there’s nothing more beautiful than someone who is interesting, kind, warm and comfortable in who they are.
Favourite colour Purple and pink. For me they symbolise courage, bravery and warmth.
Must-have beauty product Emma Lewisham Skin Reset Serum (emmalewisham.com.au, $143). It was the original product I developed. I apply it day and night and it’s truly transformed my skin.
Favourite exercise routine Running and reformer Fluidform Pilates.
