My loves, since my last posts were all fashion related, today I thought I’d finally share my highly anticipated skin care routine with you guys. I’m getting so many questions from you regarding what products I use or what I do, to have flawless looking skin. Soooo let’s get straight to “the secret” 😉 But first things first: you guys should know, even tho it may not be visible to others, I have very dry skin and when I talk about dry skin, I mean dryyyyyy, super dry skin… I constantly have to be aware of what I apply on my face, especially when it comes to skincare. Most products tend to dry out my skin even more or cause break outs all of a suddon, so to me it was always very important to know what kinda ingredients I put on my face and how those products work with my particular skin type. I tried so many products over the last decades and the only ones that really helped me having this radiant skin, are my top 5 skin care fav’s listed below. I can proudly announce, – all products that I use are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, without paraffin, paraben, mineral oil or any kind of silicones. And they are all suitable for super sensitive skin (even for people with eczema, psoriasis or neurodermatitis).
1.Avéne Make up Remover
I usually start of my morning routine with cleaning my face using Avéne make up remover, instead of washing my face. It wasn’t really intentional to skip the water part, but I’ve noticed that over time water dries out my skin even more. It’s a gentle cleanser with a non-sting, no rinse formula. Frankly, it’s a miracle in a bottle, every eye make up remover I have used before stings my super sensitive eyes. I use it in the morning to wipe off any kind of dirt + to refresh my face for the upcoming moisture and at night I remove any kind of my make-up with it. Even Mascara.
How to use?
- I find the best way to use it is to apply it to two differente cotton wool pads and then gently wipe over your face.
2. Merme Berlin Facial Beauty Elexiar
I’m always changing my moisturizing and looking for new cremes that might help me with my “dry skin game”. But I’ve never thought that skin oil would be the ultimate answer for me. Since I discovered Merme Facial Beauty Elexiar it kinda became a life safer for my dry skin.Why? Simply because it’s an all 100% organic rosehip oil, it’s vegan, packed with vitamins & antioxidants, it nourishes my skin like nothing else before aaaaand while I usually never liked most facial oils because of the texture, Merme’s ropsehip oil is super leightweight which immediately absorbs into the skin without leaving it greasy or clogged.
How to apply?
- Gently massage 2 to 3 drops into face!
3. Bioxidea Cosmetics
After I’m done applying the oil , before useing any kind of makeup, I usually put on some Bioxidea Multi -Emulsion on my T-Zone and an Anti-Wrinkle Serum around the eye & lip erea. I already wrote about Bioxidea a while back and I’m still absolutely taken by their products.
How to apply?
- release 2-3 pumps of the Multi-Emulsion and gently massage into skin until fully absorbed.
- gently apply the roll-on applicator of the Anti-Wrinkle Serum over your upper and lower eyelids and lips.
A rich night cream with anti wrinkle, lifting and firming action. Not much to say to my night time routine other than cleaning my face properly and applying a thick layer of my Korres Black Pine creme. The smell, the texture and the feeling of my skin after waking up in the morning, is simply amazing. So very smooth and soft.
How to apply?
- apply a small amount onto your clean face.
5. Frank Body
And last but not least my body hype. Well it’s quite simple. I’m as picky with my over all body products as I am with my face care products. This body scrub from Fank Body is everything. It gently exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling smooth without applying extra body butter/lotion.
How to use?
- Use 3- 5 times a week. With enough srub to cover your body. Massage in circular motions.
