Georgie Cleeve has had a busy career, starting out as a food journalist before making the switch to skincare and starting her own brand, OSKIA. A results-driven brand that's based on a nutritional approach to better skin, the true hero of the range is the beauty mineral MSM (a natural form of organic sulphur). Georgie's father introduced the mineral into the market as a joint supplement for race horses, only to find that when it was given to Georgie to repair damage to the cartilage in her knees from a skiing accident, it had phenomenal beauty benefits too.
The rest is history, as Georgie went on to create MSM-rich formulations together with a team of nutritionists, doctors and dermatologists - and the hard work has paid off, with the young brand winning over 50 prestigious awards already. But as a mother of two, with one on the way and a high-flying career to boot, what has Georgie's success taught her along the way? We found out what she's learned about everything from ageing to confidence...
The best things I've learned about...
We all fail. Laugh about it, learn from it and get on with it.
Vital! Life is not all about work. I’ve only really realised this as I get older.
Unfortunately we can’t do anything about it, so relish your knowledge and make each day count. Mentally, I love where I am now - nudging 40. On the physical side, I would love to be the same as I was when I was 20, but I’m proud of my smile lines (I smile a lot) and I know my tummy will never be the same again, but I don’t care - I have 2 (nearly 3!) beautiful children to show for it. No one really expects a 40-year-old to have the figure of a 20-year-old, so there is no point beating yourself up about it.
