Especially in times of upheaval and stress, taking time and energy for self-care is so important. Whether it’s turning off your laptop to meditate, leaving your phone behind to go for a walk, making yourself a cup of tea or a nourishing dinner, doing little things just for yourself is essential.
Because right now, you can’t treat yourself to a facial at your favourite salon, we’ve pulled together some ideas for indulgent face masks that you can make at home to give your skin a Spring refresh. Perfect for a little morning ritual or a weekend slow-down!
