MY SKINCARE FAVORITES

Having healthy skin isn't always the easiest thing to accomplish. For me, it is really challenging since my skin is on the sensitive side of life. In the winter it dries out easily, while in the summer it tends to clog. Finding a balance between the two states is something I always aim for.

 Since about a month I have been experimenting with my skincare routine, and dare I say it, we have a breakthrough! I don't like using to many products, and yes I am a creature of habit, if something works I do stick with it. So I suggest we start from the beginning, when my alarm goes off in the morning...

8 AM: The struggle is real...

I always start my day with a refreshing cleans. I do this with nothing other than Baby soap by Merima. I have tried out many face wash gels, but I always seem to come back to this simple thing, a soap. It has been around ever since I was a baby, and the formula is just amazing, it cleans, purifies in a gentle way. But, beware, do moisturize afterwards, since it tends to dry out a bit (especially sensitive skin).

That is why I usually go in with my Nivea creme straight afterwards. I just find it the most suitable for my skin. Another creme that I often use is the Bioderma Sebium Hydra one, it is very light, and easier absorbed than the Nivea one, my definite favorite for summer days.



10 AM: When I do have obligations...

Usually one can see me running around without make up, but when I do have to make an appearance somewhere I don't make a fuss abut it. Two of my favorite foundations for going from day to night and city chique in a glimpse are the L'Oreal True Match and the Lancome Air De Teint. With them and a bit of Clinique chubby stick on my lips I feel my best...




SUNDAY, 15 PM: About to be relaxed...

I am an avid fan of pampering and I think that after a long and work-packed week we deserve it! I like to keep my Sencha green tea close, occasional Wine n' Dine scheduled and rewarding my skin with a nice mask or nourishing scrub, like this new smooth sugars one from L'Oreal. For me it is best when I apply it max. 2 times a week. It gives me that instant refreshed feeling and doesn't dry out the skin.


My Easter is a bit later, but I know a lot of you are already in the festvities. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Let's all enjoy the holidays!

XOXO Aleks
