It is no secret that I love testing new skincare, and while I am not invested in the famous 10 step Korean regimen, I admit that there are nights that I am not far from using that amount of products.
It is no secret either that I am not a fan of clutter and wastage, and you don´t have to be a genius to see that this combination can easily lead to trouble. I mean, I do only have that one face, and if I keep purchasing new stuff I will eventually drown in a pile of half empty bottles.
Even worse: When doing my 2018 Beauty favorites (see here) I realized that even if I really fall for a product, I usually don’t repurchase.
Why? Because there are always three others lined up that need to be finished first, and by the time I have gone through all of them, I most likely forgot about the one that rocked my world.
So with 2019 still fresh and new, I set myself a goal: I would build a basic skin care routine out of my favorite products, one that consist of as little steps as possible, but still has everything my aging, acne prone skin needs.
So today, dear friend, we will talk basics. The four steps that your skincare routine should include no matter your age or skin type. The basis on which we will build your best routine ever!

After what seems to have been the shortest fall in history, the cold and harsh winds are upon us.
Cold and harsh are of course widely exaggerated if I compare my comfortable home in Heidelberg, Germany to where my brother in law lives, up North in Norway, but it is still cold enough for my skin to need special treatment.
So while I take care of body and soul with cozy knits and hot chocolate (a cup a day keeps the doctor away), I have worked out how to best take care of my skin in winter. And other than my hot chocolate I am willing to share these tips!

I love it when I get questions from you guys. Not only do they help me create content I know you’ll be interested in, but they open my eyes to topics I would probably not even have thought about.
Of course I had heard about blue light affecting our sleep patterns and straining our eyes, but to be honest I never gave it much thought.
At least not until a question kept popping up here on the blog and on social media: “Do you recommend wearing SPF even if I am indoors to protect me from blue light from my screen?”
As soon as that happened I noticed more and more companies marketing skincare items as “blue light protection”, and if anything can get me into research mood, it is a company claiming skincare benefits and charging extra for them.
So, lets talk about the question “Does blue light from our screens damage our skin?” and, if it does, how can we protect ourselves?

A beauty lovers heart is fickle, and what is deeply loved one month might be gathering dust just a few weeks later. Believe me, I have been there!
But there are a few items that stay with us for longer, products we reach for over and over again, and now that fall is around the corner and I get the urge to pamper myself, I figured it would be a great time to share my favorite face masks. All of which have been in rotation for at least a year!
I divided them into four categories: Exfoliating, hydrating, purifying/oil control and brightening.
If you are wondering why there is no “antiaging” category, it is because I feel like serums are much better suited to deliver results there, simply because you use them every day.

I do love traveling. Always have, always will. With my growing obsession with skincare though came a problem:
How do I narrow down what I need to take with me? Honestly, it feels like choosing your favorite child. (I exaggerate. A little at least.)
My routine has grown so much these last years, I constantly have around 15 products open. Specials like ampoules, face masks and such not included. And by open I mean, I use them. Don’t ask about the ones that are just open *hangs head in shame*
Chances are, given you are visiting m blog, that you have faced a similar problem in the past, so I thought I´d share with you my travel skincare tips.

Dominating my timeline for weeks now and, at least in Germany, still in full force.
Not that I am complaining, I thrive in the heat, but I figured it was about time we talked about the most important thing to consider: My summer skincare tips or, to put it in a more SEO friendly way How to adapt your skincare routine in the summer.
Why is it that “How to´s” always get more clicks?
And, in best skincare science manner, we are going to analyze why it is we need to change our routine in the first place when we learned that skin type is genetic (aka doesn´t change much through the year. Or… ever)
Have you ever felt that way when someone tried to sell you a skincare product? I know I have. Peptides have been around for a few years, they are the “thing to have” in your routine, yet there is a lot of insecurity about what they actually do.
Or if they even do anything.
And that is okay, because the jury is still out on that. And the fact that there are over 100 peptides doing different things doesn´t really help either.
So I put on my glasses and filmed a video for you on that topic.
