They say sleep is for the weak, but that’s far from the truth! Sleep is one of the most important things your body requires to recuperate, regenerate and recover. And that applies not just to your body’s internal organs, but your skin as well!
A poll from New Beauty asked readers, “On which area of your face did you first notice signs of aging?” and 58% of the respondents said they noticed first signs of ageing around the eyes.

I've been using ést.lab for a few months now, I was first introduced to this brand when I got invited to Thailand for the ASNTM6 event and that was when I met the director, Han, himself and got to hear so much about the reasons why he created the skincare line and the work and research that has gone into it.
Skincare may sometimes be a bit of a chore, especially when you’ve just pulled an all-nighter and the last thing on your mind is to apply your lotion, essence, serum, moisturiser, eye cream etc. before hitting the sack . Or you may be rushing out of the house after hitting the snooze button one too many times in the morning. Ain't nobody's got time for sunscreen!
