“Consistence is essential to maintaining your skins health and keeping up with the changes for what your skin needs. Correct sequence and application also plays a huge role in muscle tone, collagen stimulation and product efficacy.

Take this time during lock down to up your skin care game by incorporating my facial massage techniques everyday and adding in an active exfoliation step using Scrub In The Fast Lane for its double blend of Lactic Acid & micro crystals to buff away dull and dead skin cells. Then try doubling up on your face masks by using Puffy Eye Attack to brighten, smooth and relax underneath a sheet mask such as Radiance Boosting Mask to push a boost of Vitamin C & antioxidant strong Rooibos into the skin and around the eyes. Leave both masks on for a good 15 minutes to really absorb the benefits.


Follow my step by step facial massage techniques using a cleansing balm or facial oil:

Step 1

First step is to ensure you are warm, cosy and comfortable (in your bathroom or bed)

Step 2

Cleanse your face to remove the days dirt and grime, if you are wearing make up then take your first cleanse as your makeup removal then go in for a second cleanse using a balm such as Glow Your Mind as this allows enough slip to massage the face whilst incorporating nourishment to the skin cells without stripping.


To start the massage choose your product, a balm, moisturiser or oil. We start by opening up the lymphatic system..

Step 3

Make sure you have product spread evenly around the face and neck before you start.

Step 4

Now stimulating the lymphatic system, using opposite hand to one side of the neck, gently pulse behind the ears 4x, then slide down the neck landing just inside the collar bone and pulse again for 4 – repeat this process 4x on each side.
