I’m sure we’re all beginning to feel a little bored of this lockdown and ready to be let out for summer. So, here are some self-care tips that will relax you whilst preparing you for summer:
Your skin is the largest organ in the body and one that needs to be protected. So, if you’re sunbathing outside in your garden make sure that you’re keeping topped up on your sun cream! After a long day soaking up the sun, make sure to enjoy a nice facemask that will cool your skin whilst rejuvenating fine lines and impurities that may still lay on the skin. We have a few here at Amor that we love to use:

L’OCCITANE’s Invigorating Face and Eye Mask launched back in May, has become a storm within the UK.

Perfect for perking up tired or dull skin, or bringing down under-eye puffiness, it can be used by all skin types. Apply to the entire face if you want to use it as a face mask, or simply use it as an eye-area mask. And if you want an ultra-fresh “icy” effect, place it in the fridge for 10 minutes before use.

If you’re looking for a lip colour that’s less intense and more subtle, or if you just want your lips to shine, then their new lip oils are perfect for you! The oils are free of silicones and animal-derived ingredients, but they give a completely different finish.
Enriched with a Provençal and Mediterranean blend of fruit and botanical Oils (pomelo, pomegranate and carrot), Vitamin E and a moisturising agent, they hydrate your lips and leave them looking shiny and plumped, with a gorgeous tint of colour.
