I had this feeling. I had this feeling that it's time for a change. I don't know why, really, but I believe it has something to do with this "new year, new me" bullshit. So what did I change? I changed (with the help of my husband of course) my blog theme and I feel so refreshed. It's those small things you know.
MY SKINCARE ESSENTIALS
I have to be honest here before I start this post. Before I turned 20 I literally didn't give a shit about skincare or you know, cleaning my face before going to bed or so. That's so gross. Well, a year or two older and wiser, I've started caring. I've never had any pimples on my face or anything, but just so you know, keeping the face clean is just as important whether you have them or not.
I've been suffering from dry skin for my whole life and now I'm going to share a few essentials I have to keep this face looking as good as it does. Or well, I don't know about the face but the skin in it.
LUSH SKINDRINK FACIAL MOISTURISER
This facial moisturizer has been the absolute savior for my dry Scandinavian skin. Especially during the Winter time when it gets cold and everything dries up in seconds. I usually apply this on my face during the evening, because at the mornings I simply didn't have time to do so. Now when I'm on my Winter vacation + maternity leave, I've been using it at mornings too knowing that I can leave it to sink into my face as long as I want, because of most of the mornings - I'm not going anywhere.
LUSH DREAM CREAM & SLEEPY BODY LOTION
These two I absolutely love. How am I feeling that this will be another Lush post in the blog, by the way? The Dream Cream has been with me for a while now and it's been so good to me. I usually use these body lotions after a sauna or just after showering. Oh and I don't know if it's from moisturizing or from what, but I've got no stretch marks on my stomach even though I thought they would be a thing during the pregnancy. But if it's from moisturizing I swear these two has done their job pretty damn well!
THE RITUAL OF SAKURA MAGIC BODY CREAM
Okay, I know this is a body cream but I'm using it as a hand lotion. My hands have gotten so dry lately and I've literally tried everything. This seems to work, so I'm going to keep using it. It smells absolutely wonderful and does wonders for the dry spots, especially in my hand area.
Do you have any skincare essentials?
