I hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend and managed to put aside some time for selfcare. Sometimes when life is busy, it’s not always easy to recognise when you need a break but there are little things you can do to help de-stress from the day.
Selfcare fit for a Queen
I love blending essential oils to create bespoke fragrances to achieve different moods in different rooms in my home and a little selfcare. The easiest way to do this is with an atomiser, I bought this one some time ago from Neal’s Yard. It nice and neat and comes with a dimmer option. It’s definitely stood the test of time!
I also adore a scented candle and one of my favourites at the moment is the Garden of Eden one from Charles Farris, an economical but great fragrance too. Charles Farris also happens to be a Royal Warrant holder to the Queen so we’re in good company!
Something which has regularly been brought up in discussion with clients and journalists alike has been sore skin and rashes. In this hot and muggy weather, the skin has been sensitised and makeup application is causing friction on the skin, especially when your brushes are not cleaned regularly. If like myself, your skin reacts to brush cleaner, it may be safest to wash your brushes with your regular face wash or shampoo. Don’t forget to clean your beauty blenders and sponges too!
And I would walk 500 miles…
Well maybe not 500 miles but Zelda has started walking on the treadmill now so thank you for all your good wishes!
