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 #4
Sep 122019
 

With a start of September, it’s gotten colder – quickly, thus the need to adapt my evening skincare routine, adding more creamy textures as opposed to just water-based ones.   My Evening Skincare Routine: Cleansing As I’m gradually switching my makeup routine, so follows my evening skincare routine as well, including the cleansing products I use – if during hot weather, I use only one cleanser, I am now switching to double cleansing, most of the times. I start with the creamy Alteya Organics Gentle Cleanser followed by Alteya Organics Facial Cleanser & Wash in Vanilla & Geranium: it gently cleanses and removes any of the remaining impurities. I’ve been using the a lighter Kathleen Cleansing Lotion, mostly in my morning skincare routine, but since I’ve […]

My Evening 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 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 […]

My Morning Skincare Routine #3

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 […]

My Evening 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 […]
