The minimal skincare routine in these hot Summer days that I adhere to in the morning follows in the evening as well. Given I’m wearing sunscreen, a double cleansing is often a must, along with light but thorough hydration. My Evening Skincare Routine: Cleansing On the days I wear sunscreen, a double cleansing is a must. I try to combine it with first using a lighter Kathleen Cleansing Lotion, though I am mostly saving this gentle cleanser for my morning skincare routine, or a bit thicker but still creamy Alteya Organics Gentle Cleanser. For the second cleanse, I use Alteya Organics Facial Cleanser & Wash in Vanilla & Geranium: it gently cleanses and removes any of the remaining impurities. It’s also very […]

The weather is still beautiful – sunny and hot, and accordingly, my morning skincare routine is minimal and based on as much hydration as possible, mostly in a form of water-based serums. And liters of hydrolates, of course. My Morning Skincare Routine: Cleansing With very hot weather, even if my evening skincare routine consists of few and light, but above all, moisturizing products, my skin feels the need for a gentle cleanser in the morning. Too much cleansing can cause an oily skin to produce more oil by drying it up, but not cleansing in the morning during hot weather can cause breakouts – a bit of a conundrum, wouldn’t you agree? So, a gentle and light cleanser, preferably non-oily […]

Alteya Organics Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25 is a safe, non-nano, anti-aging sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum sun protection and supports skin’s moisture balance. Before I embark on my review of Alteya Organics Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25, allow me a bit of a pondering: why would anyone still use conventional products, when… How lucky are we, who use natural organic beauty products? We get a high quality products (regardless of the price) consisting of natural ingredients, which not only do not harm us, or provide only immediate appearance that they do something visible – they are actually skin-beneficial in the long run. We can now choose a natural foundation, which is actually a high quality cream/serum, containing natural ingredients, but […]

Another one from much requested skincare routines – this time around, I will share with you my evening skincare routine. Since there was very little Spring and we jumped from a cold, almost late Autumn weather into a hot and sunny Summer, it seems in a day, I had to quickly change and adapt both my morning and evening skincare routine, and, of course, my makeup routine – this one follows next week. With hot Summer times, the biggest change in my skincare routine is using less (but still some) oils and oil-based skincare products, switching them for light skincare products, mainly in a form of light serums and moisturisers. My already abundant use of hydrolates only intensifies. In general, […]

Jane Scrivner Intense De-Stress Mask contains the ingredients to nourish, hydrate, calm and plump the skin for a radiant and smooth skin, such as argan, jojoba, rosehip oil, while also providing a detoxing session with kaolin clay, making it suitable for a morning and evening skincare routine.  I’ve been testing and using a few Jane Scrivner products in the past few months; one of them being the Intense De-Stress Mask. What peaked my interest with this mask is the ingredients, of course, which make for a mix of a hydrating mask suitable for oily and congested skin due to ingredients such as witch hazel and kaolin clay. Kaolin clay makes the texture a bit more “glued” together, and with one ingredient […]
