I honestly think that the transition from summer to autumn is the most dramatic and brutal of all season changes. The others seem more kind and gradual, this one feels like it happens over night. As soon as the kids go back to school the temperature drops like a stone, the leaves turn that reddish brown colour and the night’s really pull in. This transition is also brutal on my skin and my emotions. I love summer and always feel a little low as it comes to an end – but I also appreciate that Autumn is a beautiful time of year and I couldn’t live in a country without proper seasons.
Anyway, enough waffling about the seasons. Last night I gave myself a little home facial to scrub away all that dead skin, brighten my complexion and add lots of moisture. It also gave me some relaxing ‘me-time’ to recharge the batteries once the kids were in bed and asleep.
Looking at my skin I knew it needed a little pick-me-up, as it was looking dull and dehydrated. Here are the products I reached for, for my little home facial treat…
STEP 1 : CLEANSING (Double Cleanse)
STEP 2 : EXFOLIATING
STEP 3 : MASK
STEP 4 : TREATMENT
I simply lay in my bed while the creamy mask did its thing with a gorgeous ‘Tranquillity’ Neom candle burning next to me on the bedside table.
This whole routine only took me about twenty minutes but it really helped to lift my spirits. I cleared my mind and felt comfortably cocooned and relaxed lying in my bed. These five products also left my skin feeling incredibly nourished and smooth, and the gorgeous smell of the Youth Juice Secret Oil lingered on my skin all night.
I must admit beauty products and gorgeous aromas make me very happy, so I knew that this treat to the skin and senses was exactly what I needed last night.
