I like to keep it simple in the summer and travel light for holidays and this includes my skincare too. If I can use multi-tasking products that will do three jobs in one then they are included in my kit.
We have all felt it, crawling through our day wishing we had five minutes to ourselves. Wanting to stop and just sit down and have some Space to think! Space to breathe!
