    Has winter weather stripped your skin of moisture? Try London Botanical Laboratories’ overnight face mask. This lightweight, creamy treatment contains anti-inflammatory CBD, nourishing avocado oil and ceramides, which support the renewal of the skin’s natural protective layer and defend against moisture loss.

  • My Doris beaded lightning studs in gold and silver

    My Doris Silver Beaded Lightening Studs
    The Drop: My Doris silver beaded lightening studs

    Maybe it’s because they remind us of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust era, but we do love lightning bolts. Katie Williamson, the founder of Suffolk-based brand My Doris, is big on vintage-inspired jewellery – and these earrings are particularly lovely.

    Available in gold or silver beading, the studs have a punky yet glamorously retro feel. Ethically made in family-run workshops in India, they’ll add the perfect finishing touch to your favourite block-colour sweater or Ganni dresses.

    The Drop: Spritz Wellness Energise yoga mat spray

    Simply spritz this deliciously refreshing mist across your mat, then wipe away. Lemongrass oil offers an addictively energising scent, while tea tree oil acts as a natural antibacterial and antiviral agent (particularly useful if you’re easing back into in-person classes). Keep your mat as clear as your mind.
