Your bathroom should be your private place of pampering, where you pause, percolate and prepare yourself for the world beyond. Take some time to pamper yourself and keep your outer layers polished with our favourite finds…

SKOON SKINCARE

Enzyme Exfoliating Clay from R455

This dual action mask is made up of a papaya and pineapple sherbet and contains Proteolytic Enzymes that gently exfoliates dead skin cells and removes deeply imbedded impurities for smoother texture and skin clarity.

Scoop 3 heaped teaspoons into a bowl, then add no more than 2 teaspoons of water and blend thoroughly with a spoon or spatula until the sherbet is a smooth paste.  Apply the mask to your face, taking care around the delicate eye area. Allow to penetrate for 5-8 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Apply the clay once a week, followed by the Overnight Hydrating Mask.
