Getaway presenter Catriona Rowntree has caused a stir among her legion of diehard travel fans after archival clips of her first ever travel segment resurfaced – leaving many to ponder how she has remained so unchanged.
The now 51-year-old seems to have not aged a day since first gracing our screens back in 1996, and the resurfaced footage has amazed Getaway fans, as a then-25-year-old Catriona looks pretty much the same as she does right now.
Throughout the years, the mum-of-two has been open in sharing her beauty tips, and walked us through some of her favourite secrets that have helped preserve her incredible youthful appearance.
She said she keeps her skincare routine simple, only using a gentle cleanser, serum, and moisturiser, but said staying hydrated with lots of water, taking collagen, and consuming olive oil is the most important.
While flying all the time isn’t the best for your skin, Catriona says she uses “liquid gold” jojoba oil to keep her skin dewy and fresh while travelling long distances.
“I love to do really quick facials like the SOS ones (10 minutes while having my brekky) and of course Clarins Beauty Flash is essential,” she previously told House of Wellness.
“That said, daily olive oil is my saviour too. On salads, directly rubbed into cuticles, a baby’s dry scalp, you cannot beat nature as a cure all.”
“I take collagen daily, guzzle the water, consume olive oil whenever possible and moisturise the neck, the décolletage, and tops of hands,’” Catriona told Marie Claire.
“My skin has always been sensitive, so I’m thrilled I can use serums which I also now add to my foundation for extra glow.”
Catriona also likes to eat a healthy, natural diet filled with plenty of wholefoods and dark green leafy vegetables from her family’s farm.
She will also never have more than two cups of coffee per day, and if she wants another hot drink, she switches to camomile tea.
The TV presenter has hosted Getaway for more than 25 years, and has travelled to nearly 100 countries throughout her very rewarding career.
