Gemini, over the past few months you have been dreaming of warmer weather and fantasizing about when you’ll be able to step outside into peaceful sunshine. This month it’s finally time to stop daydreaming and make moves on your summer plans. It is easy for you to get caught up in the “what ifs” but it’s very important to turn those thoughts into actions. Rather than getting stressed thinking about all the things you want to do you need to actually start doing them. Wondering where to start? Pamper yourself with a warm shower and then before finishing your routine add the True Tincture Chamomile Essence from Belif to your skincare lineup. Not only will this essence leave a therapeutic lingering scent to relax you but, it will work towards revitalizing your dull winter skin. Then hop into bed with your laptop, a notebook and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) and start planning your summer adventures.
