Beryl Martin, owner of the Beauty Secrets group of salons and Day Spas, shares her top tips for looking good and feeling great...Which is the one piece of make-up you cannot live without and why? Jane Iredale's Pressed Powder is a fabulous 3-in-1 product which provides me with a concealer, foundation colour and sun protection of SPF20. Once applied and set with their facial spritz it lasts all day. RRP £39.

What do you think is the best product for combating fine lines? There are many on offer but Decleor's new Expression de l'Age eye and face cream has been developed for those in the 30 to 40 age range, to eradicate first wrinkles and fine lines and brighten a dull and uneven complexion. It contains Bio-Retinol and has received some excellent reviews in the beauty industry. RRP £35 for the eye cream and £50 for the face.For the more mature skins try one of Carita's fantastic moisturisers or the Elemis Pro-Collagen range.

How do you stay in shape? I try to practice what I preach. However, running three successful beauty salons and Day Spas does leave me with little time on my hands but it does mean that I am always active. I enjoy regular Carita Pro-Lift facials which help to keep my skin looking youthful and in really good condition for my age. My recommendation for keeping a toned and cellulite-free body is our Endermologie treatment which is scientifically proven to help reduce stubborn fat, cellulite and loose, sagging skin. This fantastic high-tech treatment is available in all three of our branches.

Have you ever been on a diet? Hasn't everyone?I find the key is to understand how different foods affect you, to keep active and to drink plenty of water.

If you could change one part of your body, what would it be? I have always dreamed of having long slim legs!

Where do you have your hair cut?I visit Strands in Horsham or Spectre in Hove.

Which women do you think are beautiful?Helen Mirren I think is ageless and graceful with a wonderful fashion sense and Scarlett Johansson I think depicts the beautiful 'real woman' of today.

What essential item do you always have in your handbag and why? I love the new Pro-Collagen handcream from Elemis. It is scientifically proven to rehydrate and diminish the age spots which can definitely age you. It is in a handy squeezy tube and is something I would recommend everyone starts to use sooner rather than later. It has just been launched and retails at £29.

Which is your favourite perfume? Carita's Eau de Parfum is my favourite. But you can design your own fragrance with a Perfume Studio consultation in our salons. So if you are tired of the same fragrance, why not experience this unique opportunity and design your own with one of our perfume specialists. It's an ideal gift. Would you ever consider cosmetic surgery? No, I believe that prevention is far better than cure for me. I do, however, believe that women must do what is right for them and we are all different. I have been helping women in the south east to take the natural alternative to cosmetic surgery for the last 20 years and believe that what we offer is a highly effective solution for women in the inevitable ageing process. What would be your single best beauty tip?Protect yourself from the sun and make Beauty Secrets your first choice when you want to achieve the best results with your skin and body care needs.
