Here’s What 51 Looks Like: Lingerie Designer Says DIY Facial Massage and Night Cream Investing Keeps Her Young
- Jeanette Misseldine, 51, who lives in Hertfordshire, is co-founder of No. 1 Bra
- Mom-of-two maintains ageless appearance by rubbing facial lines
- She also applies La Mer de Creme de la Mer Moisturizer every evening.
Lingerie designer Jeanette Misseldine lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, Dale, with whom she founded No. 1 Bra (no1bra.com). They have two children, Mia, 12, and Theo, 7.
During confinement I started cutting my bangs at least once a week and now I will be doing it forever. I have always been unhappy with the way it was cut at the barber. I also started covering my gray roots with Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Hair Dye (£ 5.99, boots.com). It lasts for months and saved me a lot of money.
DIY FACIAL MASSAGE
I have never had Botox or fillers, but I am erasing my features. I first tried it on 20 years ago, when I forgot my sunglasses on vacation and squinting left a big crease on my forehead. I rubbed the wrinkle and it came down a lot. Now I do this for five minutes every day. I have since realized that this is similar to Chinese gua sha, which uses jade massage tools to improve circulation.

INVESTING IN NIGHT CREAM
Every evening, I apply La Mer de Creme de la Mer moisturizer (£ 130, cremedelamer.co.uk). It’s incredibly thick, so you don’t have to use a lot of it. My skin feels so soft when I wake up that I don’t need a moisturizer all day. Instead, I apply Simple Kind To Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion (£ 3.80, boots.com), which I don’t rinse off.
I had my two children in my early forties and running with them keeps me younger. However, when I reached menopause I felt more restless and less patient, so I started HRT. I received an estrogen patch and a progesterone tablet from my GP. I feel like myself again.
I firmly believe that the right bra can make you feel amazing. My # 1 bra brand uses a special underwire that doesn’t sag painfully. It has helped me a lot since I started menopause. My weight fluctuates so much throughout the day that I need a bra that stretches comfortably.
