I’m calling this season ‘fix up, look sharp’ – a mantra I’m trying to go by, which means looking after oneself whenever possible. I’ll be replacing the rock’n’rolling of summer with holistic, soul-calming pursuits. You’ll find me at a gong bath of an eve instead of a disco; or a sweaty, stretchy yoga session (my favourite is Hotpod – a class in an upside-down bouncy castle in 37C, all cosy and dimly lit) rather than sipping rosé in a ‘wannabe Bond girl’ cossie on the sands. I’ll be choosing shiatsu over festivals, and spreading pineapple on my face rather than drinking from one filled with piña colada.
Having a face mask sesh feels like the perfect way to kick it off, waltzing around my house in a kimono drinking kombucha from a martini glass. I’ve found a new one I want to recommend. It’s light and easy and, on application, feels a bit like you’re icing a cake: Sukin’s Hydrating Facial Mask. The ingredients consist of mango seed butter, avocado oil and papaya extracts. It is organic and 100% carbon neutral. Cover your face in a dollop, leave it for 15 minutes, then wash it off. Your skin will feel rebooted. Now where’s my kombucha?
