This winter feels longer than most and as we continue to juggle family needs, home-schooling and work from home demands, there’s never been a more important time to check in on yourself and enjoy some self-care.

Central Geelong businesses continue to offer a range of products, services and virtual experiences to help you keep a spring in your step and maintain your glow from home.

They are also providing two complimentary samples with all online orders. Visit www.ellabache.com.au to book your virtual consult or browse their skincare range.
