Now is the time to transform yourself into a summer queen! Is not that hard! Take a look of some of the miracles that charmed me!
Honey hydrates lips and makes them even more “kissable”. Exfoliate them with honey and sugar then wear a gloss that will pop them up. How about L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 100 Years collection (12 $) ?
Cafe au Lait
You drink your coffee on the first hours of morning on your favorite coffee bar terrace and you are wondering why everybody is admiring you? They are all curious how is it that your complexion shines like honey. Your secret: Intelligent Balance foundation Boots No 7 (13$). It’s hypo-allergenic and sunscreen SPF 12.
I know it sounds a little strange, but is true: some skin care key products can do wonders in reparation of hair problems. Maybe you’ll think I have gone crazy but I’ve tested them on me first.
I used my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer ( 125ml for 24$) for split ends and dry hair. Being a hydrating cream can also nourish your hair as good as it takes care of your face.
I’m just crazy about summer, but when my skin and hair becomes dry because of sun or reacts to atmosphere humidity I’m willing to revise my feelings. Of course if we learn to counterattack the effects of heat and humidity, we can look incredible.
Here is my strategy!
If you live in hot climate (but in the areas with high altitude) dry air will dehydrate your skin, making it sometimes feel itchy, and the aspect is one of “elephant skin”. The superior layer of skin can be so dry that will exfoliate, exposing the skin even more to the rays of sun. What is even worst is on dehydrated skin those fine lines that you already have can be accentuated, and chronicle dehydration can rush the skin ageing process.
In this hot summer day I just remembered about Christmas. I could trade almost anything now for a couple of hours in the Christmas Day. I have to admit that in the last few days temperatures reached +40 degrees Celsius and as much as I love sun, tanned skin, summer clothes and spirit of seaside vacations, I’m not a fan of these high temperatures. But this is not the only reason why I want to turn back time. The main reason is the gift received on Christmas Day (La Prairie – anti-aging eye cream a cellular intervention complex SPF 15) which I just finished few days ago.
I received many great gifts among the years but this one is by far the most appreciated and useful one. It came like a rescue for my eye’s skin area, because I was searching to replace my Clinique all about eyes soin total regard et contour which I was using for almost a year. I was dreaming about La Prairie since autumn, after hearing and reading all the great results that other women experienced, but I never think of it as a Christmas present to me. I have to admit that its price is kind of expensive, around 100 Eur on EBay and even more in beauty shops, but trust me its completely justified.

The fact that your skin “objects” to some cosmetic products doesn’t have to affect your beauty ritual. I have an oily and sensitive skin type in the same time. Since i was a teenager i had to deal with lots of problems concerning my skin and although i had a cleaning routine every day and night, my skin still had some problems. It’s true that you must give special attention to sensitive skin, but you can’t say that having a sensitive skin means extra efforts. We must avoid some ingredients and open our eyes to others like Aloe Vera and salicylic acid. I want to share with you, some of the products that i use daily and their effects over my skin and also recommend you new ones specially for sensitive skin.
Lots of women with sensitive skin have tried multiple methods, treatments and products that promise to respect the skin sensitivity and…nothing. First step is definitely, going to a specialist doctor, which will specify the exact problems of your skin and tell you what type of ritual you should apply to your skin, because not all the “maneuvers” are bearable.
My experience thought me that i must follow three important steps and everything will be simple. Continue Reading
I usually don’t have so much time to stay everyday and arrange my hair or use the the straightener because i don’t want to damage my hair. My natural hair is blond, very thin and without volume. Two times a week i give special attention to it by styling it after taking a bath. I usually use the hairdryer and a brush to give so volume to the roots, but before this I apply a layer of spray mousse to the roots. I use the Root Lift Spray Mousse volume lift Tecni from L’Oreal Paris. I used it only after bath over the clean hair and try to arrange it with my fingers. Hair will have a natural hold, volume and flexibility. This spray mousse is has a force type 3 which will leave the lengths and ends free and light. I can say that I’m really satisfied by this product. For the first time I’ve seen and used it in a professional beauty salon when i went to cut my hair. It was recommend by the hairstylist and i was very pleased with the result, cause usually sprays or mousses used to leave my hair heavy and in a few hours the ends will ravel. Continue Reading

Can also exist some ladies out there that can brake this rules, but most of us must give a special attention to our hair.
