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 scented Alteya Organics Facial Cleanser & Wash in Vanilla & Geranium. I have just received the Alteya Organics Rose & Jasmine Facial Cleanser & Wash, […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #5

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 […]

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 Cleanser , 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 […]

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 […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #2

Long over due and many times over requested – my morning skincare routine! I will do my best to keep this a monthly series, as despite testing quite a few products, I keep my routine as steady as possible. I will also turn an evening routine into a monthly series, so you can follow what products I use – and why. My skincare depends on many factors: what my skin needs at the moment, weather and, sometimes, how much time I have, whether in the morning or in the evening. Just as with makeup, I prefer a skincare routine that’s more on a minimalist side, avoiding burdening my skin with too many products; not only many products layered on the […]
