Spring Beauty Survival Kit
As a beauty addicted man, I can't but try a range of different products occasionally. Each season of a year needs careful selection of beauty products for your skin, moreover, our skin has lost its immunity after fall/winter period and suffer from vitamin deficiency. I've chosen a decent range of products, which can completely help both men and women to survive the season and have radiant and healthy-looking skin.
Cleansing and exfoliating are one of the most important parts of a beauty routine, as it helps you to get rid of all the oil, pollutants and products that build up on skin. To keep the skin clean, it's quite sufficient to clean it 2 times per day, but for the ones with sensitive and dry skin, cleansing once a day is enough to prevent the skin from drying. Every morning and night I use Foreo Luna 2 to complete my cleansing routine. Foreo's hundred of broad ultra-hygienic silicone touch points with 8,000 T-Sonic (transdermal sonic) pulsations per minute helps to remove impurities while refreshing the skin. I also like that I don't need to charge it frequently, as it keeps working for up to 450 full cleansing and anti-ageing routines. I use it twice a day with GlamGlow Thirsty Cleanser for more deep cleanse. After cleansing routine, our skin is ready to absorb all the required products.
I want to tell you a very funny story regarding the beauty product, I'm writing about. Once before my shooting I had used a mask and absolutely forgot about it. I went out and headed to my shooting. When we were done with shooting, I was shocked by the result. On all the photos the pores of my face were visibly opened and I didn't understand immediately what happened to my face. Then when I remembered what I did, despite of the fact that shooting was failed I found my new lover in the beauty industry. It was Malin+Goetz Detox Face Mask. It works to rapidly cleanse, purify, hydrate and protect the skin. It's like a light gel, it effectively gets rid of dirt and oil out of pores as it oxidises, creating a foam to lift the grime away. Vitamins C and E and Green Tea Extract combat signs of ageing and firm the skin, synthesising complex Amino Acids and Almond Extract purify and cleanse, leaving the skin fresh, soothed and visibly brightened. I use it twice a week at night to help the skin absorb all nourishing serums and moisturisers
Every time before going out, your skin needs to be fully equipped to fight against UVA and UVB radiation damage and environmental pollution. Every time after cleansing procedures, we must use a moisturiser with SPF, moreover during spring, when the sun is damaging more than ever. Our skin needs more hydration, protection and nourishment to get ready for summer. I've tried Perricone MD Photo Plasma which is one of the best moisturisers I've ever used. It's really magical moreover for this season when the weather is warming up and heavy creams feel too much on the skin. It glides on smoothly without a hint of the heaviness we have come to expect from more traditional moisturisers with SPF. Also, I feel fully defended with it as it protects against the 10 most common skin aggressors: UVA & UVB damage, chemical irritants, dehydration, extreme cold, pollution, excessive heat, smoke, external stress and free radicals. Photo Plasma also combines Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vitamin C Ester. They are both fat soluble, but Alpha Lipoic Acid is also water soluble as well, which means that they are easily absorbed through the lipid layers of the skin, powerfully fight against free radicals and ageing. During the month of using it, I've received an uncountable amount of compliments concerning my skin, that's why I recommend you to try it.
After the gym and sometimes during the day I use also REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist which protects the skin from the ageing effects of harmful free radicals and environmental pollution, moreover if you are a smoker or in a company of heavy smokers, it's something you really need.
Eye skin area is the most delicate part of the face. In general, our skin suffers from our lifestyle, but the eyes revenge us immediately with puffed look and dark circles. So to keep it always satisfied even after hard hangouts we need to carefully treat it. One of my favourite beauty brands, Malin+Goetz has recently launched the new product: revitalising eye cream which is a real life saver. It feels luxurious and lightweight with the multi-beneficial advanced formula which helps to solve all major eye concerns, including lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Marine Algae extract, Grapeseed oil, Sunflower oil, Fatty Acid technology, Sodium Hyaluronate and Panthenol are its main ingredients and they all together make that magic to the eyes. Reward your eyes with this cream and it'll always shine like you're living the most proper life.
Beauty Inside - Beauty Outside
To maintain the condition of your visible beauty, you need to take care of what's going on inside you. Recently I've discovered for myself Fountain: a unique brand of dietary supplements. I'm taking my second bottle of Fountain "The Glow Molecule" and it really boosts skin's natural radiance. A concentrated form of reactive Glutathione infused with a vegan-friendly source of Hyaluronic Acid, this acai-flavored liquid works to neutralise ageing cellular oxidisation caused by harmful free radicals and peroxides. They have a really interesting range of supplements and I'll definetely try a few as well. So if you care about your inner beauty which is extremely reflective, you've found the solution.
That's not news for anyone, that night is the period of recovery of an overall body. A full eight hours of sleep can keep our bodies and brains more fit, happy and focused. Sleep is extremely important for our skin as the cells of our skin starts to repair the damage incurred throughout the day. Research proves that our cells regenerate faster during the sleep. All we can do is to supply the skin with everything essential to optimise the processes of healing. I start my nighttime routine from cleansing (read above). After cleansing our skin is ready to be nourished and I use Future Rescue Repair serum from Lab Series to boost repairing and rebuilding processes. Then I do eye skincare (read above). For super-hydration, I end my nighttime routine with Perricone MD Hyalo Plasma which is the first dermatologist-grade Hyaluronic treatment to achieve youthful facial convexity. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in almost every cell of our bodies, but it's the greatest concentration is in skin tissue. It's responsible for maintaining smoothness, suppleness and providing continuous hydration. Hyalo Plasma overcomes the limitations of more traditional treatments which only able to affect the outermost layer of skin. It consists of three forms of Hyaluronic (Barrier, Crosslinked and Micro Hyaluronic Acids), each holding a different molecular weight to target various skin functions. The next day I wake up, I look in the mirror and just love myself. Don't stop loving yourself and treating yourself the way you deserve.
