Amy Lawrenson has been a health and beauty journalist since 2006, writing for a variety of magazines, brands, and websites including ELLE, Women’s Health, and Byrdie. She is passionate about all things health, fitness, and beauty (especially skincare).
In 2019, Amy left London after living and working in the capital for over a decade and went freelance, moving with her partner and two cats to Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amy once ran every day for 500 days, during which she ran two sub-four-hour London marathons, but failed spectacularly at completing the Copenhagen marathon. Nowadays, you’re more likely to find her at a reformer Pilates class than pounding the pavements.
She has a degree in Journalism and a Level 3 Personal Training qualification.
