Time to travel… I am heading to Europe and the change of climate, water and food are all going to stress my skin.
I have spent extreme amounts of money trying new products and finally I have found the right ones . As women we always want to try something new; like we say in french ” tout nouveau tout beau!” I want to share with you the products I always have with me for my travel beauty routine.
I want to mention that I start every morning with my vitamins and a green juice. I think its super important to detox our bodies from the inside.
Vitamin E gives a boost to the skin. PURE MSM is a new vitamin which I recently discovered. The primary purpose of this supplement is to reduce the risk for chronic degenerative diseases. Also, it benefits your bone and joint care, detoxification effects, skin and hair care and a natural energy booster. It’s a super supplement for me . Biotin is a must for hair and fish oil for our skin. All these vitamins are important for us as we always have lack of sleep (at least I do;)
Let me share with you my travel tips. As we all know the number one rule for beautiful skin is cleaning. Environ (www.environ.co.za) is a pre cleaning oil. This is the best discovery I made this year. Follow it with a cleansing soap Medik8 (www.medik8.com). I end my process with spritzing my face with Sisley Botanical Floral water www.parfume.com. This product really hydrates the skin. It’s extremely refreshing and moisturizes your skin and its great to use when traveling as the water tends to change. Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask (www.laprairie.com) with advanced nutrients gives the skin a boost . It melts into the skin; repairing and replenishing the face while you sleep.
The energizing mask by LaPrairie (www.laprairie.com) is the ultimate reviver. This is so easy to fit into you’re morning routine. You can use the mask while you have your breakfast. Lipstick La Prairie luxe lip enhancer always keeps my lips nourished, shiny and smooth (www.laprairie.com).
Origins (www.origins.com) and Clinique (www.clinique.com) are the best products to keep pores clean.
Environ c-boost clarifying cream (www.environ.co.za) helps improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. Medik8 anti-aging serum (www.medik8.com) should follow and then apply a daily moisturizer. I love to mix creams. Some days we need something lighter and some days we intensive hydration. I would never mix product brands for the skin but now I realize this is the best way to maintain your skin. Fresh is the product I prefer for the moment. I love the Lotus Yourth Preserve.
The lift and sculpt Butterfly Stone has many healing and anti-aging benefits; this is the best way to wake your skin up in the morning and look fresh (www.georgialouise.co.uk).
B-Active and Sebugel-A contains vitamin A and colostrum to smooth the skin. I love it especially when I have some imperfections on my skin .
Eyes are the attraction of every woman….) Clarins gel always helps me minimize the look of puffiness and dark circles. Cellular Revitalizing Eye Gel by La Prairie is for the sensitive skin around your eyes. Lotus eye cream by Fresh has a calming cucumber extract and is great to use before applying make up.
The face and body exfoliant by Fresh is my favorite. It refines the skin’s texture and balances it. Fresh has different types so I always choose based on the condition of my skin.
Once I am back from my travels; I try to do a Hydra Facial with Regina Aybinder. This treatment is perfect for clogged pores and oily skin. Sciton Fractional Skin Resurfacing is a wound-healing process and generates new collagen, plumping the skin and correcting any skin imperfections. You can make an appointment for this treatment at EUROPEAN STYLE AESTHETIC on 897 Park Avenue, NYC.
In the mean time I maintain my skin with Epidermal Re-Texturing Micro-Dermabrasion by KIEHL’S.
I adore a great body cream and my favorite is LOTION CELLULAIRE ENERGISANTE by La Prairie with vitamins and anti-oxidants that nourishes the skin. A final tip I want to mention is LIERAC body slim Destock night body-contouring. This is a magic cream with an enveloping texture that targets dimpled skin and stubborn cellulite !!!!)))) Every woman’s dream cream!!!!
There are so many choices of deodorants on the market; my number one for this month is Certain DRI and I guarantee you will feel fresh all day!
My recommendation for glowing skin is Dior auto bronzant.
I always have hand cream by La Prairie in my purse when I travel. You always want to keep your hands looking and feeling young!
Have a safe trip everyone …xx
