My skin care ABC-vitamin

Beauty,11 July 2018

Post in collaboration with Dermalogica// Kaupallisessa yhteistyössä Dermalogican kanssa

I am so incredibly happy to continue my work with Dermalogica. My loyal partner and comfort in times of bad nights, age crisis and hormonal break outs. Although, I never felt anxiety over turning thirty, I have to say, it’s been a bit harder than I thought to accept the visible changes I have to deal with now in comparison to the twenties. Ah, the carefree twenties. Why didn’t I understand to appreciate my peachy smooth skin there and then? The effort I go through to feel fresh and nice requires much more and the price I pay for occasionally basing my decisions on what’s fun over what’s good for me, leave traces.

My skin is as you know sensitive to everything. It’s also thin, which makes my veins clearer. The changes I have seen are lines and less firm skin. Especially in the neck area. Instead of giving into the temptation to go for more radical procedures, I turned to my skin specialist at Dermalogica, who finally gave me the permission to start treating my skin with smart aging products. Loving that there are some benefits with crossing the magical line of thirty.

The changes I made, were to put more focus on peeling products, serums to meet my skins specific needs, moisture and good sun protection.

What I find most important and fun, are serums. I see serums as thirst reliefs to whatever need my skin has right this moment. It’s easier to keep the rest of the skin care routine the same and focus on switching serums to match and meet changing individual needs.

I got to try the newly released BioLumin-C serum. During our meeting at Dermalogica I asked everyone around me what their favorite product was and the answer of the majority was by far this serum. Now when I’ve used it for some time, both morning and night, it has earned its way into my routine. It promises to make skin more radiant and firm. C-vitamin reduces signs of aging, lines and protects from free radicals.  

Sounds promising, right? The change I notice is firmness in my skin and since my biggest area of interest was my neck, I see and feel results especially in this area.

I apply my serums after cleaning my skin, before carefully tapping in my moisturizer. If you’re interested to know more click HERE. This product is vegan and not tested on animals.

Biolumin-C Serum on tehoseerumi, joka tekee ihosta kiinteämmän ja kirkkaamman. Se vähentää pieniä juonteita, ryppyjä sekä pigmentti muutoksia ja suojaa ihoa vaurioilta.

Seerumin avulla ihoon kulkeutuu biotekninen C-vitamiiniyhdistelmä ja solujen uusiutumista edistää myös tuotteessa esiintyvä maitohappo . Pagodipuun kukkauute auttaa ihoa palautumaan sekä rauhoittumaan ja chiasiemenöljy ehkäisee vapaita radikaaleja.

Itse koen, että seerumi on tehnyt ihostani kiinteämmän varsinkin kaulan alueella. Levitän seerumia aamuin sekä illoin ennen kosteusvoidetta.

Seerumi ei sisällä keinotekoisia väriaineta tai tuoksuja. Lisäksi tuote on parabeeniton, gluteeniton, vegaani ja testattu ilman eläinkokeita.

forecast for spring

Beauty,Fashion,9 February 2018

Spring is in the horizon and for the first time in a long time I feel excitement towards what we have infant of us, trend-wise. Here is my fashion forecast:

Curls. Super curly perms are back! Who would have ever guessed it would look so refreshing, playful and simply just Good after a decade of trying to achieve those perfect Victoria’s secret waves? I’m thrilled, but will contain myself from booking an appointment for myself.

Scarves. Scarves tied around the neck, head, ponytail or worn as a belt is for sure one of the biggest trends right now. This is super easy and doesn’t cost a thing. Go feel market or second-hand shopping or go for splurge on a timeless luxurious scarf from your favorite brand.

White boots. Teenage year flashbacks! I had a pair of white pointy toed boots in snakeskin imitation that I wore during my first legal years in nightclubs. I found them a couple of years ago and swore I’d never return to that style again… Just ordered this pair above from Top Shop.

Slip dresses. Love love love slinky slip dresses. I wear mine with sweatshirts, hoodies, cozy knits or over a turtle necktie or button up. This is a classic piece and my number one pick this spring/summer.

Headbands. Thankful for everything that gives my hair a pick-me-up, but honestly, I suck at wearing anything decorative in my hair. Maybe you’re better? Go for fun and big headbands with beads and pearls and wear it in untouched hair for a casual and cool look.

Scrunchies. The best! It’s like letting your poor hair change into sweats after a long day in tight jeans. I’m still a bit shy towards this trend, but went for the subtle black ones from KappAhl and absolutely love wearing them.

Hoodies and sweatshirts. I lived in hoodies worn with matching jersey headbands during my years in elementary school. This time I’m going to pair it with a slip dress and heels for a more grown up feeling.

Hoops. Totally up my alley! I have always loved hoops, but I want them to be not too big and definitely not too small. Gold is my pick per usual.

Beige beige everything beige. Beige is back and the more the merrier.

The no makeup look. One may think it’s always been more or less ideal, but now it’s a much more imperfect and raw version. Good skin is always in, but that’s easier said than done, therefore I suggest going for good natural brows, good base products that enhances glow (!) and skip on the Kardashian style contouring and smoky eyes.

Sets. Wearing a complete set looks put together and is super trendy right now. Pajama and kimono inspired sets, suites worn casually and also denim with denim. Anything works. Party tip for anyone who feels uncomfortable in a dress and heels!

Lilac. A color that has been more or less bullied by every other color is now hotter than ever. I kind of like it as long as it’s dirty/ smoky lilac, but I think I’ll try to stay away from clean pastels as long as I can.
