Tips to Glowing and Radiant Skin

As the spring has come and soon everything is going to blossom around, our skin should look beautiful, too. Especially that we will start using less makeup as the summer approaches, and we want to feel confident. That’s why I want to share a few tips for the skin that I tried and feel that they actually work:

1. Ice cubes – I read somewhere that many famous women use ice cubes to keep their skin young, glowing and radiant. The therapy of using ice cubes can help to control the oil production and minimize pores. Having a dry skin, to me ice cubes help to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. I try to be consistent and use one ice cube in the morning over my face, neck and chest area. The skin feels so smooth after an ice cube! Try it!

2. Serums – until one famous Russian beauty blogger explained the importance of a serum, I somehow did not consider this step in my skin care routine. I tried one recently and feel a nice difference on my skin. It is one additional step between a toner and a face cream which is enough to do twice a year, because first, it is not necessary to do it all the time, second, serums are the most expensive products in the skin care line. I would definitely recommend to google which serums are reviewed as very good, and try one according to your price range and preferences.

3. Water – a very old and known skin care tip which cannot be omitted. Since I started to drink lots of water a few years ago, my skin has been thankful to me. It can be hard to start drinking 1,5 – 2l every day immediately, so a good tip is to have a 1,5-2l bottle and you will always know how much you have to drink.

I am very curious to hear what do you do to keep your skin young?

Inspiration: Future perspectives



I saw that my blog is checked by some of you, my dears, however, I stopped blogging, or rather learning to blog, for a while… The truth is that once I graduated, something clicked inside me and I was not able to understand why and how…
  The only thing I honestly wished for is to be in the beach and listen to music - to be all by myself with the sea and have nothing on my mind… Exactly how I did 5 years ago. I was on the island 3 months and everyday I would go to the beach and listen to the sound of waves, watch huge ships coming to the island… I guess, I did not realise how much the fact that I am not a student anymore affected me, especially when a month ago I was studying, working, having other activities (salsa!), then suddenly nothing - no studies, no work... feeling a bit empty inside and sad… the need to create new goals, new achievements, learn to play on another level…
   This time was spent to think about those wonderful 25 years I am in this world, to go through my goals and desired accomplishments again.
    So, are you ready to come on this journey again? By the way, did you notice my new layout? Let’s see what the future brings…
