Ok, at this precise moment Spring has definitely sprung, but being England, next week there could be snow (not kidding).
I do love to give my skin a boost and lavish a little attention on it, for a bright, glowing Spring worthy complexion and here is my ultimate arsenal of products to do just that.....................
Another slightly *unusual* Springtime- skin treat I swear by is......
It is an essential oil purported to boost the conscious intellectual side of your mind, while calming anger and panic. Its relaxing properties help to calm rapid heartbeat and insomnia whilst clearing the skin of excess sebum and fighting skin blemishes. But I find it to be like an all round skin tonic.
Petitgrain oil has a woody yet floral smell it was one of the original ingredients in the first versions of Eau de cologne.
It is an oil that derives from the leaves of the orange tree and is generally known to be: non toxic, non sensitising etc unlike some of the other citrus oils.
I pop 4 drops of this oil in a sinkful of warm water when I cleanse my face and I use this is the water that I use to wash my face in. Aromatic and treating- yep, that works.....
Happy Spring cleaning xxx

Eau de Nil Literally translates as water of the Nile.........what a glorious and fabulous thought, it is a green but a subtle seafoam green, I am just loving the greens right now, they look fabulous when you are wearing all black- oops that'll be me......all the time xxx
