Due to hectic lifestyle, my beauty routine is cut down to nothing.
Skimming off the fat of the land as they say. I’ve also been in bed with the mother of all migraines, incapable of movement or rational thought.
The migraine triggers
The migraine crept up on me – it was one of those London busy days, catching London cabs, fighting the Borgias, writing angry emails, answering angry emails – you get the general idea. In addition to that, I ate some junk and had a couple of glasses of wine. The rest is history as one might say- a migraine that no drug known to science could manage to shift. I felt nauseous and utterly defeated. When this happens all I can really do is stay very still, in a dark room waiting for it to subside. LSH (long suffering husband) was on a business trip – he gets very worried the poor darling and other people’s worry just makes my own worry increase and migraine gets the upper hand.
When I was finally able to move again, crawled out of bed, and proceeded to have a languid bath soak, using penhaligons Vanities oil. The adorable glass bottle was given to my for my birthday, but now absolutely besoted with the stuff and will have to buy it myself. Traditional glass bottle, the superb packaging, the utterly divine smell. It just feels so luxurious to open the glass stopper and pour in a hot bath.
I cleansed my face using cotton wool pads and plain, inexpensive rose water. Added a couple of drops of cold pressed apricot kernel oil (instead of serums) to my evening face cream and my skin was very happy. My night cream is still byTerry, haven’t found anything nearly as good to replace it.
Then back to freshly made bed with a glass of sparkling water and a Melba toast to calm my poor stomach.
Even though I missed all the action, election debates, (Theresa where art thou?) Trumps later escapades, (Paris agreement anyone?) feel much better now. Give it a couple more days on this low maintenance beauty routine and I may be able to kick some Borgias ass again…
