WELCOME TO MY WORLD
A little glimpse into my daily life
“PS. I hope you know, you look beautiful today!”
Today’s blogpost is highly requested – if not the most requested blogpost of mine, for a very long time. I thought it was about time I wrote this post for you angels. I daily get questions on my channels regarding my skincare routine, and what products I use. In this blogpost I will explain to you what products I consistently have been using for years and years now.
I think one of the biggest game changers for my skin especially the past two years has been sticking to a consistent morning and evening skincare routine. I have especially the last year been prioritizing skincare over makeup more than ever. I make sure to drink lots of water daily and work in regularly exercise. I never allow myself to sleep with my makeup on – no matter how late I get home, or how tired I am, I always make sure to cleanse my skin before going to bed.
I am not a skin specialist, and I am sure many of you might think it’s strange why I will use the same cleanser and cream both morning and night, but I love my simple and easy skin care routine. These products I use are wonderful. I have used them for many years now and they works amazingly for me! Personally since I travel non stop as well, I love that I do not need to bring that many products with me.
Shop my daily skincare products here:
The brands I use are: Dermalogica, Balance Me & Eve Lom. I have been using Dermalogica for more than 12 years. Since I was 16 I have been using the same cleanser and face cream. I have tested other products though the years, but I keep coming back to Dermalogica. My best friends mother owned her own beauty salon, and she introduced me to the brand when I was 16 – and since then it’s been my favourite.
My cleanser: For my morning and night cleanser I have been using the Dermalogica special cleansing gel for several years, and I am not planning to stop using it! I have normal to dry skin, and I feel like this cleanser is the one that works the best for my skin type. It removes oil, dirt, and makeup very well without irritating my skin. I also love that a very little goes a long way, so a cleanser normally last me years. For every cleanse I don’t need to use more than a pea size of cleanser. It is a light cleanser, smells heavenly and has a natural light fragrance to it which makes me feel like I am in a beauty salon. Every time I use it I feel like I am treating myself. It’s a soap-free, foaming gel cleans for all skin conditions, and feels refreshing and gentle. It cleanse your skin without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. It leaves my skin feeling light, clean and moisturized without drying it out. I can highly recommend it! (Find it HERE.)
My moisturiser: My moisturiser is like my cleanser from Dermalogica. It’s called Active moist and I use it both day and night, and I love everything about it. I have been using it since I was 16 years old, and like I said before – I am not planning on replacing it any time soon. Thanks to this beauty I always feel like my skin is soft and hydrated.
I have like with the cleanser though the 16 years I’ve have used this product tried other moisturisers, but I keep coming back to this one. It will forever be my number 1! No one makes my skin feel as healthy, glowy and hydrated like this one!
It’s texture is light-ish but does an amazing job nourishing and moisturizing my skin. It absorbs immediately and blends perfectly. Since I have normal to dry skin, I do need a moisturiser that can keep my skin glowing the whole day without drying it out. I can highly recommended the Dermalogica Active moist for those needing light but good moisture with normal or combo skin. (Find it HERE.)
My face oil: I started using the Balance Me face oil for about half a year ago, and since then I have been using it daily both morning and night. I use 3-4 drops on my cleansed skin before my moisturiser.
I can easily tell the difference the few days where I’ve forgot it – then my skin is more dull and dry.
The Balance Me face oil helps hydrate my skin, it helps to reduce my pigmentation and make my skin look healthy, glowing and brighter.
If you feel like your skin is lacking glow. Your skin feels a bit dull and you tend to have a bit dry skin like me – then promise me to give this face oil a chance. I know you’ll love it! (Find it HERE.)
Eye cream: I got this eye cream as a press gift to an EVE LOM event in London for about 5 months ago, and I have loved using it since then. I always wake up with puffy eyes, and I feel like this EVE LOM Radiance Antioxidant Eye Cream helps to reduce that very quickly. It is very soft and hydrating, which is great for my dry skin! (Find it HERE.)
My face scrub: Twice a week I use a face scrub from Dermalogica called Multivitamin themafoliant. This is one of my ALL TIME favourite products. When I use it I feel like I do something good for myself. The warming sensation that is created by the product when you use it on your skin is so luxurious! Every time I use it, it feels like an experience I would only get at a spa (I have that feeling with all of my Dermalogica products). In addition, the scrub itself does a fantastic job of exfoliating without being too rough. I use it after I have used my cleanser – to make sure my skin is clean when I exfoliate.
I prefer to use it at night so that I’m not putting makeup over the exfoliated area – or on makeup free days.
I can straight away after use see and feel the difference. My skin looks brighter, fresher, more smooth and it gives my skin a healthy glow.
My hair mask: I have in one of my recent hair posts (which you can read HERE) tipped you of my go-to hair treatment from Michael Van Clarke. It’s called: “3 more inches” (Added a link to the mask HERE.) I have been using it for about a year now, and I have the result. After just the first treatment you can feel and see a massive difference.)
When I use my hair mask I apply it whilst my hair is dry, and then I leave it in over night, and then when I shower in the morning I wash it out while giving myself a little scalp massage.
Days where I am a bit busy I apply it before I go for a run or to the gym, or just let it sit in for as long as I can. I LOVE to multitask and feel that I get the most out of all my time, and in this way you treat yourself to gorgeous hair at the same time as you take care of your body and mind – win, win. (Find the hair mask HERE.)
These you go my angels! These are my top favourite products. Products I have been using for years and years now, and will continue to use.
Even though your regimen is going to look different than mine this is what works for me. Depending on your skin type, you might need different products – but I know the brands I use offer a big variety for all skin types, so if you are looking for trying some new products I can highly recommend you to try both Dermalogica, Eve Lom and Balance Me.
