Fashion Week is usually quite a busy one and although I always tell myself I won’t be doing much I always end up saying yes to way more than I should and there just seems to be so many events even if I don’t actually go to that many shows. Add that to the change in season and my body slowly trying to adjust and it usually becomes a very busy and a bit of a stressful time but I have a few bits that I come back to for a little TLC.
My favourite way to end a stressful day is with a hot bath, a good cleanser and some extra skincare bits that I may sometimes miss out. I have been unable to stop using the Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing balm, it’s pretty expensive and I’m more than half way through mine but it’s just the most luxurious and relaxing one I have. It’s a great one to use for a facial massage as it’s quite an oily and can be used all over the face and eyes. I like to spend an extra 10 minutes on this and really get my blood flowing around my skin, it’s really relaxing and really helps revitalise my tired skin.
Following that I will take care of my eye area which is always affected by my lack of sleep and I find a good cooling eye cream really helps relax me before bed. I follow that with a nice heavy night cream such as the Monu Extra Rich Night Cream one which I have really been loving this week (and I even wear it during the day!). I find that as soon as my skin gets a little dry my makeup just doesn’t last as long and really looks cakey, a good cream can help combat this and add radiance back to into my skin.
My favourite pre-sleep product however is the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray as I find it to really help me unwind and get a good nights sleep. I have the original and the Sleep Plus version, I choose between them depending on just how tired I am and find that even if I don’t get eight hours sleep, I am always a little more rested when I use this.
A great product for the morning is the Skyn Iceland Cooling Eye Patches, they come in their own little sachet so are perfect for travel and I like to put them on any time that I feel my eyes are a little puffy and I find that they really help cool and de-puff my eyes.
