What you’ll need
A warm flannel soaked with face wash (I love using Chien by Lidl.)
Marc Jacobs body lotion
A paper face mask if you want (I use the Korean herbal ones on Amazon)
Have a steaming hot shower using a good body scrub to freshen you up. Steam is very good at opening up your pores.
Make sure you take care of any eyebrow and ‘garden maintenance’ if this a special night. ☺️
Shave legs from ankle to knee – pay no attention to the adverts with smooth thighs (it’s all airbrush)
Shave arms and applying a cream like deodorant such as Mitchum
Scrub your feet with a pumas stone – clip toe nails and finger nails.
Now on to your face
Firstly always use a fresh flannel (even when you wash it after using it, it can still harbour germs.) Apply some warm water and throughly lather the face wash. When washing focus on your T Zones.
Next apply a thick layer of hydrocortisone cream around your cheeks and sides of your face in a circular motion. Apply to any other dry areas such as the forehead or bridge of your nose. Let it soak in for 20 minutes.
Cover your body in E45 cream, giving extra attention to sensitive areas if just been shaved. Focus on hands, elbows and heels – non scented is kinder to skin. Wipe off any excess hydrocortisone cream and swipe a little moisture under under the eyes and under your nose and Cupid’s bow to act as a natural highlighter.
Apply lip balm (I love a tinted one)
Then slather yourself in Marc Jacobs body lotion – apply face mask in the evening for 20 minutes and go to bed feeling spa like pampered.
TIP: A good makeup primer is essential; I recommend MUA hydro gel and a good and Ganier Water
