Wirral mum voted country's most natural beauty
4:46pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
A WIRRAL mum has been voted as one of Britain’s most natural beauties.
Rebecca Mellor, 30, won the under 40 category of the Lorraine Naked 2 competition on ITV’s Lorraine last week.
The contest, which also named Kiran Mann from Essex as the champion of the under 50s group, was a search to find the country’s most beautiful women who do not need lots of make-up, plastic surgery or botox.
The women have now won the prize of starring in a TV campaign for a top beauty retailer as well as appearing in a glossy magazine.
And Rebecca said her secret was to keep her skincare routine as simple as possible.
She said: “It’s amazing - I can’t believe it and I’m really, really shocked.
“I try not to mess with my skin too much so I don’t have any facials or anything and I don’t go out very much anymore because of the kids so probably because I don’t drink.”
More than 6,500 people entered the competition and 10 finalists were chosen to be whittled down to six by the judging panel which included model Penny Lancaster, celebrity photographer Nicky Johnston and Red magazine beauty editor Rosie Green.
Presenter Lorraine Kelly said: “There are so many naturally beautiful people in the UK and this is a real celebration of those people who haven’t resorted to surgery and still look stunning when they’re makeup free.
“All of the finalists were really beautiful but Kiran and Rebecca really deserved to win. Kiran looks amazing for her age, she has lovely skin and an inner confidence that really shines through.
"Rebecca also has beautiful skin and really striking eyes and although she seemed one of the most nervous of the finalists hopefully this will give her a bit more confidence.”
