There has been so much to choose from for my Editor’s Choice this month and I found lots of lovely things to share with you and for our 2017 Must Haves out next week. I have been de-stressing, anti-ageing, lighting candles, smothering myself in caviar and getting rid of redness with my favourites this month. I hope you want to try them too
I loved trying out the new destressing Hayo’u range which aims to bring you daily defence against the damaging effects of stress. Welcome to our One-Minute rituals based on body work, breathing and bathing techniques of Classical Chinese Medicine.
The Beauty Restorer is £35 and helps you clear away the signs of stress and aging on your face, in just one minute. This simple, self treatment is based on an ancient Chinese Medicine technique called Gua Sha. It’s an easy press-stroke action to draw toxicity and tension out via the excretory function of the skin and the nourishing function of the circulatory system.
You begin by watching videos for all of the correct techniques WATCH The technique draws out toxicity and tension for an altogether brighter, healthier complexion and body. Do take a moment to check out all of the rituals www.hayoumethod.com
We are addicted to our new Infracyte LUSCIOUS LIPS -£45 www.lusciouslips.online

We also love the new NeoStrata Redness Neutralizing Serum £28.50 www.neostrata.co.uk
