Holy grail in skin-care 

I’ve gotten positive feedback on having a skin-care post after asking you about what you wanted me to write about, so I decided to share my routine with you all today.

Every morning when I wake up, the first thing I do according to my skin is to use this little guy.


I bought this cleansing gel along with an electronic skin machine from the same brand; clarisonic, but I found out my skin likes it better alone without the machine because I’m so sensitive. Therefore, I just rub the cleansing gel all over my face using only my hands, after washing it with hot water. It’s meant to cleanse your pores and help with problem skin. It works wonders for me, and I’ve seen a huge difference on my problem areas after using it both morning and night on a daily basis.
Secondly, I use a toner from a brand called Shea Moisture. It’s a must for me to tone my skin after cleansing it with the gel, it makes my skin feel extra refreshed. What I do is spray a little bit on a cotton pad and use it all over my face and neck. This toner is the best I’ve ever tried, and I’ve used thousands of dollars on skin-care products through the years. I discovered Shea Moisture’s products when I moved to America, and holy moly I am in love!


1-2 times a week I use a scrub from the same brand, to get rid of any dead skin and take my skin-care routine to the next level. Often times I use the scrub if I ever have a bad day or need to wake up because I have tons of work waiting to get done too. It is amazing what scrubbing your face and drinking a cup of coffee can do to your mood if you feel slobby or just need an extra refreshment.

Talking about refreshments, the next step I would like to share with you is my amazing mud mask!


Look at that!^

For a “natural-organic-vegan-health freak” like me this one is fabulous! I love to use the mask after scrubbing my face, doing so makes it feel like the skin really soak in all the minerals and extracts – a feeling of wellness.

Last but not least, MOISTURE. This step is so important and I always go in with my coconut oil after cleansing, scrubbing, toning, and/or using the facemask.


I think you can get this one in any drug store? correct me if I wrong. NB! Do not use too much! You only need a tiny bit in order to give your skin the moisture it needs.

I also got a question on how I take care of my skin when I work out so much. The answer to that is I make sure to always rinse my face in the shower after excercising, I don’t use any products. I don’t want to stress my skin too much by going overboard in terms of products. Even though the products I use are good, I still want to keep it simple. After showering I use a tiny bit of coconut oil to avoid dryness.

On a daily basis I drink a lot of water, eat plant-based, take B-vitamins, multivitamins and flaxseed oil for omega 3, 6 and 9. These are essential for your skin, you got to take care of your body inside out.

Hope you liked this post! Let me know if there’s anything else you would like to know.

Good night. ❤

Stress

Due to my finals, travelling, and working at an airport I have really been feeling the stress lately. At first I did not handle it very well, but after a while I think I managed to deal with it pretty good, in my opinion. Therefore, I want to share with you some of my tips and tricks that I learned to use during my stressful period.

  1. Breathe.

When you feel the stress sneaking up on you, try to focus on your breath. Many people, including myself start to breathe uncontrollably when their nerves kick in. What’s easy to overlook is that your uneven breath fuels your stress, and make you even more anxious. If you focus on breathing evenly and deep down your lungs, you will get the sence of being more calm and in control.

2. Think through.

This may seem difficult but take the time you need to sit down, breath and think through whatever stresses you. Changes are, it does not take as much time as it would to run around with many errands on your mind, not knowing what to take care of first.

3. Write it down.

Now that you have your breath and mind under fairly control, write that shit down! Make a plan over what needs to be done and when it needs to be done. Decide your first priority, thereupon,  your second priority, and so on. In that way, you get all factors on your mind out of your head and down on something physical that you can look at, which also have a calming effect.

 

4. Positive mindset.

You will go through what ever you are going through, a lot more uncomplicated if you choose to have a positive mindset. Choose to believe that everything will work out in your favour, as long as you are doing your best. If it does not, you will figure it out later. For now, focus on what needs to be done and deal with the outcome later. There is nothing you can do about it at this moment, except to work hard and take one step at a time. Admittedly, you can be your own worst enemy, or your own best helper. Breathe.

5. Be present.

If you live in the moment and take one task at a time, you will most likely find yourself achieving a much better result than if you did not. Indeedly, this is not easily done when you have a hundred things to do, a flight to catch and plenty of schoolwork, but trust yourself and your capabilities. As long as you arrive the right place at the right time, you are good to go. You have not spent half of your life on a schoolbench without a reason, you deep down know the answere to any task on your upcoming tests. As I said, trust yourself.

6. Get a grip.

Now go! Take charge and embark the point that stands on top of your list. Put on some hardcore music, make yourself a cup of coffee and check out the points as you complete them. It will give you more motivation as you go.

Good luck on what ever stresses you!

Much love. ❤
