Self Care Skincare - Invest in Yourself If sitting around for weeks without makeup wasn’t bad enough, perhaps we have all been a bit guilty of overlooking our normal beauty regimes and now our skin needs some extra TLC to get it back to its former glory. So, it’s time for a beauty product overhaul. We have been trying out the best of the skincare products out there to turn dull and lifeless into glowing and gorgeous. Here are our top picks. It all starts with a great cleanser. Wipe away the dirt, impurities and makeup for a fresh start. Use morning and before bed and you will soon see the difference. This Fresh cleanser from John Lewis is perfect as it’s really gentle, full of amino acids (a good thing) and is suitable for all skin types.
