I'm out of face oil 😣. So it's a great time to share one of my recipes with you. With all the stormy windy weather and central heating our skin can be quite dehydrated, even if you tend to have oily or combinational skin. Plus with the light starting to change blemishes, redness and dry patches can be more apparent. So before you reach for the concealer lets add some moisture to our complexions and boost circulation with a little face massage. Your skin will be looking much better in no time!
You will need:
1 x 30 ml brown pipette bottle
