How to update your skincare routine for fall

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. The weather in Germany took the transition to fall very seriously. Within 24 hours we went from 32 °C and sun to heavy rain, wind and mornings with 6 °C. Needless to say I was busy changing summer bedding to thick duvets, frantically searching for the kids rain boots and getting my skincare routine in order.     Yes, I updated my skincare routine before I even updated my wardrobe (I still have my boots stored away), because #priorities.…

Winter Evening Skincare Routine 2017 – Atmospheric inversion

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Are you ready to go on a meteorological tangent with me? I promise, it will tie in with todays video! Have you ever heard the term atmospheric inversion? It is a kind of weather very common in winter, when the layers of air closest to the ground are much colder than the ones higher up. If winter is cold where you live, chances are you’ll experience atmospheric inversion for the first half of the colder months.    …

Winter Morning Skincare Routine 2017

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. I would consider myself a morning person. Getting up early, the day at my hands and full of adventure feels amazing. Of course “morning” starts when it gets bright and light outside, and here, dear reader, I am facing a problem. Because now, the longest night of the year only a few sleeps away, it doesn’t get bright and light until around 8 am. And by that time I have been up at least two hours already.    …

My evening skincare routine – Summer 2017

There was a time in my past that I partied so hard that all I could manage to do before bed was take off my shoes. There was a time when I actually thought that eye makeup I had slept in looked even more appealing. There was a time when I used face wipes for cleansing.     But I am old, and that is both my excuse and my advantage. My excuse because it was hard to know better back then. There was no You Tube to guide me!…

My Morning Skincare Routine – Summer 2017

When I say summer, I actually mean spring/ summer. Or even more precisely, the warmer months starting around April and lasting until end of September.     My skin is combination oily, aging and acne prone. Ever since I started using a prescription strength retinol a few times a week it can be dehydrated, but never dry. The t-zone gets pretty shiny throughout the day and I wear contacts, which means that my eyes can be sensitive when it comes to eye cream. After letting you under my skin like…

My evening skincare routine – Winter 2016

You know, it sometimes takes some time to actually convince myself to face the camera completely without makeup, but as my appearance improves during the course of the video, I relax. Now doing it the other way round, starting with a full face of makeup and turning myself into a concealer-less, scrubbed face person with oil all over was strange, to say the least.   Aktivieren Sie JavaScript um das Video zu sehen.https://youtu.be/qHJRiGJRNlI   But you asked for it and here it is: My evening skincare routine.

Taking the day off – my evening skincare routine

While my mornings are all about an efficient, streamlined routine (if you fancy taking a look, click here), in the evenings I really like to take my time. Being a new mum with Mr Loca working crazy hours, this tends to be the me-time I get on an average day and I try to make the most of it. Not in order of appliance (is that even a word?) Wearing SPF and make-up on a (almost) daily base, I make sure to give my skin a proper cleanse. No matter how late it is and how…

Rise and shine … or at least rise – My morning skincare routine

Having suffered from acne for a long time, taking care of my skin became second nature. I have come a long way, starting with regular visits to the dermatologist at the age of twelve (definitely a must if you suffer from acne), going through a phase of experimenting on my own (absolutely NOT recommended) and lastly turning to the world-wide-web looking for answers (Caroline Hirons, I am looking at you). During these years, 23 to be exact, I picked up a fair share of knowledge. While being a physician myself has added some useful background information, I…
