The Skin Care Secrets of a Beauty Blogger
Place | May 23, 2016
A few days ago I was asked by Farfetch.com to share my skincare secrets and talk about my favorite skincare products which is a great idea for a new blog post 🙂
I always take a lot of care of my skin, since I was a teen I started to use face and eye cream and later then masks and serums. I can say that I have tried them all and I could give some advice regarding beauty.
The first rule to having beautiful skin is to hydrate, so I drink a lot of water. Right after getting up from the bed, in the morning, I always drink 1 or 2 glasses of water then only after half of hour I have breakfast, as well on the night before going to bed.
I never go to sleep without cleaning my face, I love to use face wash cleanser, very rare I use toner. Sometimes if I come home late I am sleepy and I just use wet cleansing towelettes that I always keep them near my bed (only rarely, for lazy nights). After cleaning I use pure hyaluronic acid, face and eye cream.
I have tried many products from Oriflame, Lancôme, Clarins, Chanel, Dior and my favorite at the moment are SK ll and La Prairie. La Prarie is quite expensive but it’s worth it.
Once or twice a week I exfoliate my skin with face scrub, recently I found the Olay Pro -X microdermabrasion plus advanced cleansing system which makes miracles and the price is affordable.
Twice a week I use hydrating face masks that help me prevent the fine lines and recently I found a new favorite product that helps me reduce the dark circles that I am fighting for years with. It’s an eye mask from Shiseido that I use every second day. I used to use slices of cucumbers that I kept on the fridge to have them cold but what I didn’t liked it was the fact that I had to lay on the bed for 15 min and not move my face. These eye masks stick to your skin and they don’t fall off if you move 🙂 it’s refreshing the skin and also hydrate it.
I did some research on farfetch.com and I found some great products that I will order soon.
