    Self Care Sunday – The Best of Skincare

    best of skincare

    One of my favourite things to do on the weekend, especially on Sunday nights,  is a really indulgent skincare routine. You can have the most expensive, top-notch makeup products on the market, but if you’re not taking care of your skin, they’re not going to perform the way you want. My skin is always a good barometer  of my overall health, especially my diet, stress level, and sleep habits. Taking care of your skin is taking care of yourself so that’s why I’ve chosen to do the ‘best of skincare’ tag for this week’s Self Care Sunday post.

If you have oodles of money burning a hole in your pocket and these are your favourite things, that’s cool. You do you. But for the rest of you, I invite you to peruse this list and think about what you’re really getting the next time you pick up a hyped or expensive product. Drumroll please……
