When it comes to the upsides of lockdown, there aren’t too many, but whilst we’re not allowed out, I’m taking the time to really baby my skin, hair and nails. If I’m not heading out for groceries or attending any Zoom meetings, I don’t wear a scrap of makeup, and the postman has caught me sporting a full face and hair mask more times than I’d care to count.
Once I’ve washed everything off, I make sure to use a super nourishing moisturiser, and let it get to work all day long. It feels like I get to enjoy a daily facial, and to make my skincare feel even more indulgent, I’ve been keeping this bottle of Skin & Tonic’s Rose Mist at my desk to spritz a few times a day. Made with organic rose, cooling aloe vera and skin-conditioning glycerin, it’s a skin conditioning treat which rehydrates skin, and undoes the damage done by having the central heating on all day.
On days when I do wear makeup, the spray is as equally handy. I love to use it as a setting spray, once I’ve applied my bronzer. It gets gives skin a perfect amount of glow, and it means that it lasts much longer than normal too. I’ve also found that on days where I’ve been a bit heavy handed with my foundation, or overdone my bronzer and blush, it can also stop everything looking or feeling too heavy or overdone.
Skin & Tonic Rose Face Mist is priced at £18 and is available here.
