June 19th was the day cheers could almost be heard around the island (ok, at least on social media).

Timeout from the Time Out
With our newfound freedom and a return to the office for a significant amount of people, time out in the environment instead of working from home exposes your skin to a number of elements, on top of the leading one – the sun.
Dead skin cells, vehicular fumes, recycled air from air-conditioning are all damage dealers to your skin.
Be it at work or out with your friends or partner, Phase 2 just leaves you little or no time to care for your skin like you used to at home, with the wealth of time on your hands.
What do you do when your skin needs a timeout from your time out?
Skincare routines on-the-go, of course!
