When I see clients for facials, we always discuss skincare routines as I want to be sure they maximise their homecare programme. Between these conversations and Wellness Words, I find myself consistently referring to products I know will make a difference. So I thought it would be helpful to create a reference section on my website.
Hope you are enjoying the longest day of the year. Finally, the season we dreamed of during the dark and cold days of winter is with us. It’s time to take full advantage of the Vitamin D and warm temps.
Less always seems to be more in summer, which is why this is the perfect season to lighten up your makeup, opting for a tinted moisturiser instead of foundation, so you don’t find yourself melting during the day.

It’s the time of year where lists recapping the best of the past 12 months are everywhere. And because I love a list, I’ve used this concept to inspire skincare items that I can’t be without. Well, let’s be generous and call them skincare-related, remembering that I believe good skincare is the foundation on which everything else is built.
Ever washed your face and found this on the towel after you dried it?
