Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, food writer and author Tess Ward has joined the AVEENO Skin Wellness panel to talk about the importance of probiotics, prebiotics and gut health in the wellness journey. A firm believer that wellness comes from the inside out, Tess is a champion of healthy, fuss-free cooking that doesn’t compromise on flavour, encouraging good gut health as an important part of overall health and wellbeing. Below she shares her health habits with us…


My non-negotiable health habit

“Pooing daily. If I don’t go at least once, I know it’s not good!”


My de-stress tool

“Chocolate of course, however often I feel more amped up after it!.


My evening routine

“I love an evening bath in winter with magnesium salts and bath oil. In the bath I do a full body scrub and after I use the AVEENO Daily Moisturising Yoghurt Body Wash. It’s formulated with prebiotic colloidal oatmeal and nutrient-rich yoghurt concentrate that provides an enriching experience that is as good for your skin as it is for your senses. It’s my must-have winter skin protector.  ”


My desert island beauty product

“My mums homemade deodorant”


My biggest health extravagance

“IPL laser facials… I go see Dr Benji Dillon for these”


My workout of choice

“I’ve been really enjoying trampolining (or rebounding, as it’s called)


My biggest life lesson

“Don’t date narcissists


What does skin wellness mean to you?

Looking fresh, bouncy and feeling confident in my own skin. When I’m well-rested and my skin is taken care of, it’s the best feeling.
