My skin care routine

Well, hello! It’s been a long time since we heard, that was back in 2015., and I want to apologize for that. ( I hope it’s not too late to say sorry 🙂 But, this is my first post in 2016., and I really wanted it to be ‘beauty themed ’cause I didn’t have these kind of posts and I like them a lot. I hope, you’ll like it too 🙂 Also, I promised you a lot of ‘Gossip girl posts’, so  gg lovers stay tuned, ’cause that’s coming up soon!

Remember! 

Taking care of your skin is very important, especially during winter months. And I’m not just talking about your face, but also your whole body. Soft and moisturized skin is part of healthy life and also it can be very relaxing! So, fine some time to dedicate it to you and your skin, Light some candles, play music, grab a magazine or a book and simply enjoy!

I wanted to show you which products I’m using, and as you can see there aren’t a lot of them. Most them are drugstore and they are not that expensive, but their quality is amazing! So, let’s start with a face…

IMG_20160108_142911

As a wash gel, I’m using this Balea Grapefruit Washgel for young skin. This is my no.1 wash gel so far, it’s not aggressive which to me is most important thing when it  comes to face washes, ’cause my skin is young and  a bit sensitive. I’ve tried out a lots of face washes and some of them were causing my skin to break out more ( instead of doing opposite) and dried her out even more. But luckily this one is not doing that, so I would recommend it to everyone. You can find it in DM drugstores and the price of it is about 2-3$.  After I wash my face, it’s time to moisturize it. This step is really, really important, maybe the most important out of them all, because your skin won’t get dry and it’ll be saved from all bad things outside ( cold weather, harmful gases) and it will be soft ‘like a baby’s bottom’ (sorry,  I had to incorporate that 🙂  During the winter months, I use this Afrodita Cosmetics moisturizer for baby skin. I always use baby creams, simply because I couldn’t find any that’s appropriate for my age. So, this one is working great, but I use it only during winter months, because it’s manly for the cold days, which can be seen by the texture. It’s very thick, so it’s a bit harder to put it on evenly, but I’m glad it’s like that, ’cause then I’m sure that my skin is getting protection it deserves! I’m not sure wheather you can find it in your country, but it’s drug store product again, and it costs about 4-5$. After that, I use this little creme and I put it only on my zits, because it’s so helpful, it makes them disappear faster and less red and disgusting. Honestly, it’s my mom’s creme for the under eye part, but I discovered that it works great for my skin, so I took it away. It’s from a local drugstore brand, so you probably won’t be able to find it, unfortunately. To soften and hydrate my lips during the night, I put Baby Lips Intense Care lip balm, which is amazing btw. 

And that’s all when it comes to my face! Since, I don’t wear makeup often I don’t often use makeup remover, but when I do, L’Oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing Milk is my lifesaver! I use the one with pink sticker on and I’m in love with it!

Sorry for the weird photo, my own one ended up deleted somehow…

When it comes to my skin, I use Nivea body lotions. I’ve been using their lotions for years and to me they’re the best. They leave my skin so smooth, they smell amazing and they’re long lasting. Now, I don’t have specific one, but currently I’m using Nivea Body Milk Smooth Sensation with shea butter. Recently I’ve found out, that shea butter is very beneficial for skin, especially dry one.

And something I can’t leave my house without putting it on are these products…

I’ve already talked about my moisturizer, my Avon Cocoa Butter Hand cream and Classic Labello lip balm.       

This is one of the best hand creams so far, it smells so good, leaves my hand so soft and it absorbs very fast. And, lip balm is perfection in a tube. It’s the best for winter months, so nutritious for my lips and it looks great. When my lips are chapped and dry, it recovers them very fast. It’s classic, so it leaves your lips a bit sparkly, healthy and soft. And the best part is, that’s reachable to anyone and also not expensive!

Did you know that you can make so much beauty products from basic stuff from your house. Probably. I’ve read a lot about this, but sometimes recipes are ‘fast and easy’ only in the article. When you read the list of all ingredients, you give up and realize that going out and buying a product is much easier. I feel you. That’s why I’m going to give two easiest recipes t make beauty products.

No.1 : Face peeling

All you need for this one is honey and a bit of sugar. Mix them up, to get nice thick paste. Apply it onto the wet skin and then scrubb your face. The honey is antibacterial, it will help you with your breakouts (if you have them, of course) and sugar acts like those granula you see in peelings, it wipes all of dirt and dead cells you have on your face. Super quick, easy and helpful!

No.2: Face toner

Now, this one is a bit stinky, but it’s a lifesaver when it comes to breakouts ( at least for me)… You will need a water, an apple cider vinegar and a container to store your toner. Mix the water and toner, 50% water and 50% vinegar and apply in on problematic area every morning and evening. It was very helpful to me, I hope it’ll be the same to you 🙂

Be healthy

‘Your inside is shown outside.’ Try to keep you life healthy, by eating junk food less and protein food more, drink a lot of water and your skin will be flawless. I know it’s hard, but let the perfect skin be your best motivation. Of course, everybody has a soul, so getting junk food or candies sometimes  is completely normal, but don’t go too over it ’cause your body won’t be happy about it.


Zdravo svima! Proslo je dosta vrema od mog poslednjeg posta, koji je bio u 2015. koja je sada zvanično iza nas. Želim da vam se izvinim zbog toga ( nadam se da prihvatate moje izvinjenje 🙂 No, ovo je moj prvi post u 2016. godini i želela sam da bude malo drugačije tematike od prethodnih. Jos u prvom postu ovde sam napomenula da sam veliki fan mode, ali i lepote i kozmetike. I evo ga, moj prvi post posvecen tome. Takođe sam vam obećala dosta postova vezanih za seriju gossip girl, stoga ukoliko ste ljubitelj te serije spremite za nekoliko postova koji dolaze uskoro!

U ovom postu želela sam da pomemem negu kože i pokažem vam neke od proizvoda koje koristim. Nega kože je veoma važna, posebno tokom zime. I to ne samo nega lica, već i usana i ruku, tj. nega celog tela. Čista, mekana i negovana koža deo je zdravog života, a takođe to može biti i veoma opuštajuće. Zapalite neku sveću, pustite muziku, uzmite vašu omiljenu knjigu ili časopis i uživajte!

Kao što sam već rekla, želela sam da vam pokažem i proizvode koje koristim, kojih kao što možete videti i nema nešto naročito mnogo. Skoro sve možete naći u drogerijama poput Lily-ja i DM-a, po veoma pristupačnoj ceni, a veoma dobrog kvaliteta. Najpre nešto o nezi lica. Za pranje lica koristim Balea blagi gel za pranje lica sa grejpom za mladu kožuOvo je moj omiljeni gel za čišćenje jer je blag, što je za mene najvažnija karakteteristika, jer je moja koža mlada i pomalo osetljiva. Probala sam mnoga sredstva za čišćenje lica, od kojih su neka više štetila nego pomagala mojoj koži izazivajući bubuljice i isušujući mi kožu. Srećom ovaj gel nije takav, stoga bi ga preporučila svakome. Možete ga naći u DM-u i košta negde oko 300din. Kada operem lice, obavezno namažem kremu. Ovaj korak je veoma važan zbog hidratacije, ali i zaštite vaše kože od štetnog uticaja vetra i hladnoće. Tokom zimskih meseci, koristim Bebi kremu za zaštitu kože od mraza i vetra. Uvek koristim kreme za bebe, jer nisam uspela da nađem neku koja će odgovarati mom uzrastu i potrebama, a sve bebi kreme su se pokazale super jer su lagane, blage i ono najvažnije hidratantne. Ova krema je dosta gusta, te je zato odlična za zimske dane. Jeste da se malo teže razmazuje, ali koža dobija negu i zaštitu koju zaslužuje! Možete je naći u svim drogerijama, verovatno i u nekim apotekama i košta negde oko 300din.

IMG_20160108_143642

Nakon toga, stavim ovu malu kremu koju možete videti u uglu slike (gore) na bubuljice. Krema je fenomenalna, bubuljice brže sazrevaju i nestaju i takođe više nisu onako crvene, gadne i ogromne. Međutim, ona nije namenjema za bubuljice. To je mamima krema za predeo ispod očiju, koju sam ja, čim sam otkrila njena pozitivna dejstva na bubuljice, prisvojila i zavolela. Kremu možete pronaći isključivo i Lily-ju, jer je proizvođač njihova marka Veoma zdrava krema (Antirid) i košta 200din. Da bi moja usta bila mekana i lepa ujturu, pre spavanja stavljam Baby Lips Intense Care labelo, koje divno miriše i fenomenalno hidrira. Pošto šminku nosim samo ponekad, ne koristim često sredstva za skidanje šminke, ali kada se to desi  L’Oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing mleko za skidanje šminke mi je uvek tu pri ruci.

Kad je u pitanju nega tela, obično koristim Nivea kreme za telo. Već nekoliko godina koristim njihove kreme i po mom mišljenju su najbolje. Koža mi je tako mekana i glatka, mirišu divno i traju dugo. Nemam omiljneni miris, ali trenutno koristim ovaj Nivea Body Milk Smooth Sensation sa ši puterom. Skoro sam čitajući razne blogove, portale i magazine, naletela na članak o ši puteru i njegovim dejstvima. Veoma je hidratantan, pa se preporučuje osobama sa suvom kožom, i naravno divno miriše!

IMG_20160108_143552

 

Tri proizvoda bez kojih ne izlazim napolje tokom zime! O kremi za lice sam već pričala, ali ne mogu da ne pomenem Avon kremu za ruke sa kakao puterom i vitaminom E, kao i Labello Classic balzam za ustaOvo je jedna od najboljih krema za ruke koje sam probala do sada, miriše prelepo, koža je brzo upija što je odlično jer ne morate da sedite i čekate 5 sati, u nemogućnosti da bilo šta uradite jer su vam masne ruke, a opet je hidratna i čini kožu mekanom. Za labelo je svaka reč suvišna (kao kažem to, a opet ću napisati 10 rečenica 🙂 Savršeno je za zimu i ispucale usne kojima je potreban oporavak. Malo je ‘masnije’, što je glavni razlog zašto tako brzo oporavlja usne i daje im zaštitu.

Proizvodi kućne radinosti 

Da li ste znali da može napraviti odlične preparate od stvari koje imate u kuhinji? Verovatno. O ovome svi mi stalno čitamo i nalazimo ovakve recepte, ali ponekad su brzi i laki samo na papiru. Kada vidimo listu namirnica koja je potrebna za pripremu, odustanemo od nje i shvatimo da je mnogo lakše kupiti taj proizvod. U potpunosti vas razumem. Stoga ću vam predlažem ova dva preparata, koji su zaista laki za pripremu, ne zahtevaju mnogo vremena i namirnica.

Piling za lice

Sve što vam je potrebno su med i malo šećera. Pomešajte ih dok ne dobijete gustu, lepljivu masu. Potom je nanesite na vlažno lice i baligim pokretima masirajte kožu. Med ima antibakterijska dejstva koja će vam pomoći u borbi sa bubuljicama (ukoliko ih imate, naravno), a šećer se skinuti prljavštinu i mrtve ćelije sa lica. Veoma brzo, lako i delotvorno!

Tonik za čišćenje lica

Ovo će možda biti malo neprijatnog mirisa, ali je definitvno najbolja stvar za rešavanje problema sa  bubuljicama i masnom kožom, bar za mene. Sve što vam je potrebno je voda i jabukovo sirće. Napravite rastvor sa 50% vode i 50% sirćeta. Nanesite na lice ujtru i uveče na preoblematične delove kože.

Be healthy

‘ U zdravoj ishrani kje i zdrava koža ‘. Trudite se da živite zdravo, tako što ćete smanjiti unos nezdrave hrane, a povećati unos proteina, piti dosta vode i provoditi više vremena napolju i vaša koža će biti sjajna i čista. Znam da je teško, ali neka vam ideja o savršenoj koži bude glavna motivacija. Naravno, svako ima dušu, stoga slatkiši i brza hrana su ponekad potpuno u redu, ali nemojte preterivati i vaša koža će vam biti zahvalna!

    1. Hahaha, I’m so glad we agree with the boys part. Thank you so much, I hope you liked my skin care routine. Yes, of course, but sometimes is hard to resist not to eat perfection called chocolate… at least for me 🙂

  4. I agree, taking care of your skin is important! Also, during the winter my skin gets really dry so I have to find products to keep it hydrated and moisturized. I really enjoyed reading this post! 🙂
