Please read disclaimer.   If you read about  the first haul I did this year, you might remember that I treated myself to a few silk pieces (if not, you can find it here).

Can you drink your way to perfect skin? Ask Doctor Anne

Do you do New Years Resolutions? And if you do, is drinking more water among them? I bet you have heard before that drinking enough water is the key to clear and well hydrated skin. But is that really true? Can you really drink your way to perfect skin?     Short answer: No. Drinking more water will make you pee more, and that’s about it. Why that is and if there is an exception to the rule? Let´s see!   Disclaimer I am talking about people with normal and…

What is the right order to apply your skincare products in? | Ask Doctor Anne

One of the more frequent questions I get asked is: What is the correct order to apply my skincare products in? And the answer is an absolutely dissatisfying: „That depends!“ Just like it is in many other areas of skincare, there is not much research to help answer the question.     It would be hard to design a study around that topic anyway. I mean, what does „right“ mean here? Most efficient? Least harmful? Or most pleasant experience? All three could be right for you. As always in skin…

When should I start using anti-aging products

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. After I filmed the video on “How to build a basic skincare routine”, a common question I got was: When should I start using anti-aging products? Can starting too soon be harmful? Which age will be too late?     As always, there is no one size fits all answer. The skincare you need is much more determined by your concerns and your lifestyle than it is by the age in your passport! Starting really early won´t damage your skin –…

Low Buy 2019 – The first month

This blog post uses affiliate links and features PR-Samples, which classifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far? Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually. I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t  really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)     Which is actually not entirely true: I…

New Skincare Releases – What is worth buying?

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Anzeige. You know what the hardest part of a low-buy is? You actually can’t just go out and just buy all the things that tickle you’re fancy. Okay, I should have known that before I declared my Low-Buy 2019 on the blog, and obviously I DID know that, but I didn’t know just how hard it would be! I developed a habit of keeping up with new releases over the last year, a great thing for a beauty blogger, but not exactly…

THE INKEY LIST Rosehip Oil – For the soul

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Once the New Year Excitement has worn off, all we are left with is the cold, dark and grey reality of winter in Germany. No snow covered slopes to brighten the outdoors here, at least not on a regular!     When going outside seems to be no fun at all, and you need not only protective layers of clothing, but also protective layers for your soul. Now don´t tell me you don´t know what I am talking about, chocolate is…

Oskia Perfect Cleanser – Wool

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. It is no secret that I love my knitwear. Scarves, cardigans, you rarely see me without them once the temperature drops below 20 °C. The love for knits runs deep in my family, my mother supplying us with an abundance of handmade garments, dressing my children as well as myself. The one exception? My sister. She loves a chunky knit as much as I do, don´t get me wrong. But she can´t stand the feeling of wool against her skin. Doesn´t matter…

How to build a basic skincare routine

This blog post uses affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. 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…
