We all know those little extras, like a pre-shower skin brush and a weekly hair mask, do wonders for our skin and hair but sometimes there just isn’t time to dedicate to doing them.
Time is forever ticking and with the constant juggle of work (finding freebies can be tiring), socialising and family time, it’s often hard to maintain our usual beauty rituals. When we’re stretched for time it tends to be the ‘me time’ that falls to the wayside.
Here’s my secret free beauty tip: overnight products can really help! Night serums and conditioning hair treatments; they require minimal effort and, best of all, do all the hard work. So, when there’s not enough time in the day to pamper yourself, why not let these goodies work their magic while you sleep’
