My Morning Skincare Routine #6

These past months have surely been strange; so many things that used to be a part of some continuous schedule have, by some weird reasons, fallen aside… including reporting on my current skincare routines. I thought it’s time to slowly get back on track with all the things which are, one way or the other, important to me. My current morning skincare routine is somewhere in between seasons, with a Summer season becoming more and more overpowering: hydrolates are, of course, still present, the mask are quick pick me ups, serums are more on a creamy-side based, at least one face oil is a must, in this edition of my morning skincare routine it’s the lovely raspberry oil… The links […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #5

With all the rain, chilly and moody weather, beautiful October all of the sudden seems so far… My morning skincare routine now consists of more oily textures, but since I use more creamy-based makeup, as well as more oily and nourishing – even layered – products in my evening skincare routine, I try not to overload my skin in the morning. The links for all the products are the end of this post. My Morning Skincare Routine: Cleansing When I layer more products the previous evening (serum, mask, face oil), I opt for the affordable and nicely scentedย Alteya Organics Facial Cleanser & Wash in Vanilla & Geranium.ย I have just received the Alteya Organics Rose & Jasmine Facial Cleanser & Wash, […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #4

Even though there are still some very sunny and quite warm days, the mornings are getting colder. I am gradually changing the products I’m using, but at the same time, as you may have noticed, I do keep a lot of the same products in my skincare routine rotations. I tend to use the products that work on their own and in combination with other products, while introducing the new ones slowly. I do not hoard products, using them for only a short period of time, and then letting them sit in a cosmetic drawer – so you won’t see me posting my skincare routines every month with totally new products featured. How can some post their skincare routines every […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #3

It seems every year, the last days in August, beginning of September, there are a few heavy rainshowers and storms, which bring a substantially colder weather. Change of seasons, and with it comes changing the beauty products I use – not completely, but gradually. My Morning Skincare Routine: Cleansing While I am still using the gentle Katheleen Natural Cleansing Lotion in the morning, I am gradually switching to Alteya Organics Gentle Cleanserย , also due to discovering that the Kathleen Cleanser can be used for eye makeup removal; I’ve always had a difficult time finding an effective as well as gentle and non-irritating eye makeup remover, so once I do find one, I tend to save it for that. My Morning […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #2

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 […]
