Face time

Steam away those in­tense emo­tions, says Gemma Cair­ney

The cross­over to 2019 has been a big one. It en­abled rem­i­nisc­ing and re­flect­ing, as well as look­ing at lots of pic­tures of fan­tas­tic and mad times along the way.

In our dig­i­tal era, we see our faces a lot and try­ing to work out what you think of your face can be con­fus­ing. On some days mine will be puffy and tired with all the tears and gig­gles that spout out of it. Other days it’ll look bright and op­ti­mistic. I see flick­ers of feel­ings in my face. I know how I felt in the mo­ment of ev­ery pic­ture. I don’t hide things eas­ily so I pledge to look af­ter my skin, plung­ing it into cold and sweat­ing out angst in a good old-school face steam.

Now it’s a very 80s sug­ges­tion, but I’ve got a Fa­cial Sauna and I adore it! A bit of kit that re­quires you to breathe deeply and vis­cer­ally ‘sweat it all out’ feels like a lovely thing to do! That, and the fact that once pur­chased you ou don don’t t need to buy any­thing hing else, just fill it with water. .

The ben­e­fits range from pore cleans­ing to con­ges­tion clear­ing. You can add oils to suit and, best t of all, you don’t n’t have to leave e the house. Rio Fa­cial Sauna, £24.99, ar­gos.co.uk
