She has written many articles about approaches to anti-aging treatments and has frankly documented her own experiences in trying non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox.

She has written guides to beauty for teenagers with both of her daughters. The first, co-authored with Molly Hindhaugh, is entitled Be Beautiful: Every Girl's Guide to Hair, Skin and Make-up (Walker Books 2009;ISBN 978-1-4063-1831-9) and the second, with Beth Hindhaugh, 100 Ways for Every Girl to Look and Feel Fantastic (Walker Books 2012;ISBN 978-1406337549).

Hart-Davis has also developed Good Things, a range of skincare and bodycare products designed for young women in their teens and twenties, which is sold through Boots, Tesco and Sainsbury.
