A day-to-day one month skincare & beauty challenge to learn some new things, get soft, clear, glowing skin and beautiful, healthy hair…
Sometimes, more than great products, you need a good beauty challenge – a schedule that covers everything your skin needs on a monthly basis. You can keep it on the wall above your dressing table to remind you on what needs to be done.
This one-month beauty challenge has everything you need (beside your regular twice-a-day cleansing and moisturizing) for you to stay beautiful, glowing and stylish. It is mostly about maintaining your skin supple and youthful and keeping it clean and hydrated.
Plus, you’ll get to try out some new products and techniques and learn a couple of new things, which will come in handy in a long run, and most importantly – you’ll have a lot of fun.
