As the weather is getting colder. I am taking extra care of my skin. My beauty routine is quite simple. I am the girl who believes less is more and I believe in quality products, which doesn’t mean breaking the bank all the time.
My grandmother always believed in natural ingredients for skincare but also for your health in general. When I had a cold, a flu or something else. She always had this amazing solution that contained only natural ingredients and she persisted in using natural/organic ingredients. She’s in her late 60’s now and she still looks stunning. So I always take her advice and hope I will look like her in my 60’s. In my early twenties, I became really interested in ‘natural’ beauty ingredients and I’m always looking for something ‘new’ to try. For me beauty is a bit of luxury and part of the fun in beauty is discovering the new holy grail product!
My lips and skin get really dry during winter, but I am so glad I’ve recently discovered this cute Reve De Miel lip balm from French luxury brand Nuxe. This balm contains honey and is super yummy for your lips. It makes them extra soft. Another discovery is the High Potency Evening Repair from Perricone MD. I apply it every evening. It contains Alpha Lipoic Acid and gives you a more radiant appearance in the morning.
I really think honey is an amazing ingredient and you can use it for so many things. You can make a luxury hair mask yourself by adding a teaspoon of honey to your favorite hair mask. Honey is an ultra moisturizing ingredient and it will make your hair ultra soft. Perfect for girls with dry hair. But, we’re not done yet. You can use honey for your face as well! I used to make this DIY face mask all the time. It contains 2 tbs yoghurt, 1tbs honey and 1tbs cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and apply it to your face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and rinse it off. Trust me your skin will feel super soft!
