Quick Pre-Bed Facial

Whilst this isn't a facial in the usual sense (I don't allocate a lot of time to cleansing, toning, exfoliating, masks etc) I really like to do these steps on days where I feel my skin is crying out for a boost. If you're short oftimebut need to put some glow backinto your facial skin, then this is a really good mini-facial to try: Firstly, I remove all my make-up with a facial wipe.
