We All Need a Beauty Night in

When the midlife challenges are all feeling a bit too much, treat yourself to a beauty night in. Here are our favourite home pampering treats. Wine optional.

Diptyque Feu de Bois Scented Candle, £27


Scent creates instant home pampering. Never underestimate the power a fragrance can have on your mood and ability to switch off. Diptyque Feu de Bois is the crème de la crème of candles. The woody scent is akin to sitting by the fire on a cosy winter’s night – warming and relaxing.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, £44


Many of us don’t put much thought into our cleansers, but once you try this balm from Elemis, there’s no going back. It’s luxuriously nourishing and melts away any makeup or impurities to start your evening feeling fresh.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask, £64 for 4


Home pampering doesn’t get much more zen than when you’re horizontal, wearing a sheet mask. This cooling foil mask is supercharged with hyaluronic acid -a key ingredient for midlife face-fixing. It’s seriously hydrating and will leave your skin glowing come morning.

Chanel La Base, £22


The menopause years can leave your nails feeling dry and brittle. Give them some TLC home pampering with two coats of La Base by Chanel. It strengthens and protects while also colour-correcting and adding a natural pink tone. And a touch of Chanel always looks great on a bathroom shelf. 

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm, £21


A hard-working hand cream will leave your fingers and palms feeling soft and smooth. We love the Aesop Hand Balm as it’s intensely moisturising without feeling greasy. It also works brilliantly on feet.

Sisley Revitalising Fortifying Scalp Serum, £135


During perimenopause and menopause your hair can start to thin. (Just to add to your self esteem issues!) One way to counteract this is by taking care of your scalp. Massage in Sisley’s expert serum to instantly soothe while strengthening in the long-term. It smells incredible too. The ultimate in hair home pampering.

Slip Silk Eye Mask, £43.75


When you’re ready to sleep, try this Slip Silk Mask. It’s surprising what a difference wearing it can make if you’re having trouble nodding off. Created from the highest grade of mulberry silk, it’s incredibly comfortable and will protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
