TV presenter and Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman, 35,  reveals her top beauty and diet tips and why she’ll never say never to Botox.

DIET

My mum used to have a whole shelf in her bookcase dedicated to dieting books, so that put me off for life. I’ve never followed a specific diet but I try to eat as healthily as possible.

Since the birth of my son Rudy 16 months ago I’ve done a bit of home cooking for him so I’m eating more fresh vegetables than I used to, but I don’t think there’s any harm in eating the occasional pizza or kebab.

I’m more body conscious since I gave birth and I have a few more lumps and bumps, but I don’t freak out about it. I just eat more greens, cycle to work more and work hard at resolving it rather than looking for a quick fix. As long as I’m somewhere between nine and nine and half stone then I’m happy.

SKIN

My skin is so dry that it literally sucks the moisture out of the air, so recently I’ve been treating myself to some facials at Fortnum & Mason with Sarah Brown, who is wonderful. She does this treatment called Dermabrasion, which sort of hoovers the skin cells off, and I use lots of Sisley products and also Cowshed moisturisers for my dry hands.

Wrinkles don’t bother me and I’ll be happy to grow old gracefully. It’s hard for me to say I’ll never have Botox as I’m not at the stage in my life where I need it yet, but my general feeling about facial cosmetic surgery is that you lose your expression and you lose part of you. I think you lose part of your identity.
