I am ready for a girl’s night in.
Usually, when I think of a girl’s night in I imagine lots of chat, copious amounts of laughter and beauty treatments. Beauty treatments are more about the camaraderie than the actual results. I remember younger days when ‘the girls’ would get together for a sleepover and part of the fun was slathering us in beauty products and in particular facial masks.
We sat around, covered in thick face creams and waited for a transformation. Little did I know that I was already sitting on a miracle; youthful, beautiful skin that really needed nothing more than simple looking after. Isn’t the benefit of hindsight a luxurious concept?
This weekend it will be only me and the masks, yes, we are old friends and I am in the mood to apply more than one. I find applying and wearing a face-mask very relaxing. It is probably because the treatment makes you slow down and pace yourself, even for 30 minutes.
Do I use a mask as often as I should? No, of course not. When do we ever look after ourselves, as we should? I certainly crave the benefits; the extra nourishing, the highlight and polish they provide to a mature skin.
Girl’s Night In
use the mask at night, this allows for the greatest absorption
apply the face mask to clean skin after cleansing and toning, either use before moisturiser or over a facial oil for super results
masks are a treatment, use regularly between 1-3 times a week, depending on the mask
My latest skincare crush (hardly latest since I have been using these products on and off since 1995) on Darphin is showing positive results – my skin has never felt better. I’m going to generously apply my new jasmine oil, then cover my face with the hydrating mask and luxuriate in it all night long. Two words – can’t wait. xv
