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.

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, […]

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 […]
