What’s your make-up mantra? It’s always been important to me to look good when I’m racing. I even like to have painted nails when I ride. I like the saying, ‘Look good, feel good, go good!’ I definitely think looking good helps you feel more confident so I’ll wear a little mascara, tinted moisturiser and lip balm. I always reapply before getting up on the podium.

Which areas really suffer because of your sport? Training with a helmet on every day means my hair is prone to a lot of frizz so I need a haircare regime that helps protect against helmet hair! I love to leave in a hydrating smoothing product after washing like Pantene’s Smooth & Sleek 24h Frizz Fighter to combat any frizziness.

What are your must-have beauty products? I love Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream or Neom Organics Moroccan Blush Rose Oil for some indulgent pampering. In my make- up bag I rely on Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF20, By Terry Touche Veloutee highlighting concealer and Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy.

What’s your favourite feature to accentuate for a night out? My hair, of course! It’s crammed into a hot helmet pretty much every day so when I’m glamming up, I love to really make my hair stand out.

Being a water baby, how does the pool affect your skin? My beauty regime is quite easy. Because I’m a swimmer the chlorine can really make my skin dry so afterwards I shower, exfoliate my face and then moisturise. When I get home from training it’s just a case of applying some more moisturiser and a slick of mascara and then I feel a little bit more girly again.

How do you like to pamper yourself? I love to paint my fingernails and toes when I’m watching TV. Being in the pool all day isn’t very glamorous so it’s nice to treat myself when I’m not training. Dior nail polish in Blue Label is my current favourite but I have to keep my nails short to avoid scratching other swimmers in the pool.

What are your must-have beauty products? I love using Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Scrub because it smells so fresh and leaves my skin feeling pampered. I reach for Aussie 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner twice a week to keep my hair soft, shiny and conditioned.

Do you have a favourite make-up trick? I would never go for false lashes but if you wiggle a mascara brush from the root of your lashes up to the top you can really plump your eyelashes. I apply a few coats of Max Factor’s False Lash Effect Gold Edition Mascara for real ‘wow’ impact. When it’s on I’m often surprised they’re my own lashes!

Do you follow any kind of skincare regime? I use a Dermalogica facial wash and - this is going to sound really stupid - but I always moisturise because chlorine really does dry out your skin. I’m doing say 25 hours a week training and I think about 15 of those are in the pool.

What products do you always have in your swim kit bag? A shower gel like Adidas Ice Dive is the key thing, just because I’m constantly in and out of chlorine. It’s quick and easy to rub all over your body and hair just after you get out the pool. I’ve become immune to the stench of chlorine because I’ve been diving for 10 years but that, teamed with Ice Dive deodorant, is the best way to make sure I don’t smell of it.

What’s your grooming must-have? For me, it’s my hair wax - I use TIGI Bed Head. I’ve kind of got to the stage where I can just style it without even looking in the mirror. But when I’m in the pool, it just has to be natural because there’s no waterproof hair wax as yet.

How do you prepare for training or competing? Shaving foam! But not to shave with. We rub it on our shins and then wash it off, so it gives us better grip when we hold onto our legs for a dive. Life Begins 19
