A little pick me up you can do at home

How are you going? I hope this finds you well.  I needed a little pick me up the other day and am finding that the mixture of stress and missing my monthly facial is playing havoc with my skin, so I went searching for an at-home treatment I could do. I found a great article by @elleuk for masks with ingredients found in our fridge! I made myself a full facial with steam from a boiling pot of water, my home made mask and listened to some meditation. It was perfect! Choose yours here. Alternatively, if you are well stocked with Nimue skincare, we'll be sharing their at home DIY videos on facebook as they're available. Pop on over to have a look. See you soon, stay safeAmber x...
