"I recommend to clients to take one night - or morning, whatever suits you best - a week where you really take a deep dive into your skincare and just get lost for a little while. Especially with clients who feel like they aren't currently putting enough time aside for themselves to check in with how they are feeling and take a moment to relax.
I also see a lot of clients who have done the opposite and maybe overworked the skin, so we can take that energy and use it to create a more ritualistic and caring approach to skincare. We’ve all been there - especially during lockdowns when so many of us were looking for things to do or having trouble with our skin - and maybe we overdid it on intense skincare products or trends at home.
So, it’s nice to plan some time once a week where you have that longer, self-care focused ritual where you cleanse, use something like the born again face mask, read a bit that book you wanted to get back to lately or massage the scalp whilst it settles into the skin. Then, gently remove it and finish with a grounding facial oil like needs must face oil, taking a deep breath in of that calming scent and a moment to massage the skin for the ultimate weekly ritual. It's a more realistic way to be consistent and make a positive impact with your skincare and self-care."
