    A sheet mask is an ideal way to treat your skin while still allowing you to carry on with your regular tasks if you are too busy to stop. Although if you do have 10 minutes to spare, you’ll feel much better taking the time out!

    This Decléor Aurabsolu Hydrogel Mask was used backstage on the Victoria’s Secret Angels at the Paris Fashion Show this year, so you can expect big results! Infused with Jasmine Absolute and Essential Oils, it is the perfect antidote to tired and dulling skin.

    Block out the light

    The best time to get some “you” time is actually when you sleep. If you are following the experts advice of 7-8 hours of sleep per night, you actually have a lot of time to relax and heal your body.

    Popping on an eye mask can help block out the light and ensure that you get a full night’s sleep so you wake up feeling refreshed come morning time. The Holistic Silk Mask is filled with real Lavender for a relaxing scent too.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
