I really do talk about sleep a lot. Between formulating the Sleep Series, working with patients for whom sleep is a treat and my endless pursuit to showcase the importance of quality sleep for the skin, it’s become a daily topic at the farm. We can get into the detail of the relationship between sleep and skin and the reasons why we don’t sleep another time, today I want to try and answer one of my most commonly asked questions - How do you lay the path for a good night’s sleep?
It came as somewhat of a surprise to me that the final Skin Recovery Blend formulation is sea green in colour. The foundation of the formula, the very heart of what makes it so powerful, is a curation of five very blue oils. Fondly called ‘The Azules’ this collection of Blue Cypress, German Chamomile, Cape Camomile, Blue Tansy and Yarrow are power horses on their own but collectively offer unparalleled support to stressed and compromised skin.
I am delighted to be working with the lovely Lou Dartford a very talented makeup artist with over 15 years experience and a keen interest in natural beauty products. I have been following Lou's journey in discovering more about green beauty and we jumped at the chance to hear what she had to say about red carpet beauty. A x

My recent travels in the States took me for a flying visit to the Hamptons for a de Mamiel Cleansing Masterclass at Goop’s pop up store in Sag Harbour. We were lucky enough to do the class on the store’s beautiful shaded terrace. Of course, being in Sag Harbor, I took the opportunity to explore all that this gorgeous seaside village has to offer. If you find yourself in New York or the Hamptons, do try and visit this little gem of a place. Here are a few of my recommendations for the area… Ax
