World renowned makeup artist, Wendy Rowe believes that the key to good skin is to feed it with the right nutrients. Author of the brilliant cookery book ‘Eat Beautiful’, we asked Wendy to share with us one of her favourite simple recipes for this time of year – and with jammy figs currently in abundance and adorning our farmshops, this was the perfect choice.
‘Good for detoxifying the system, figs add a touch of natural sweetness, providing a healthier alternative to processed sugars, which can be detrimental to your skin.’

Dress at the last minute, drizzling over the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a zigzag motion and scatter over basil leaves to serve.
