Happy Friday guys! Another week is almost done – and, I’ll be honest – I cannot wait to (hopefully) sleep in this weekend. I’ve been getting up at 6am every morning this week. This may sound normal and regular to many of you, but is a nightmare in itself for me. I love sleeping in, and I love staying in bed as long as possible. Although I usually get up at 7am as well on work days, that one hour earlier really hit me. Then again, the day suddenly seems a little longer and that morning workout that can be squeezed in before the first meeting gives me that extra boost that I desperately needed after the past weeks travel.
Traveling to New York the first time really was a small dream come true. Although packed with meetings and conferences during the week, it gave me a chance to experience the city over the weekend. If there is one thing
to complain about that I really noticed, however, was the heavy (almost dirty?) air. After flying back to Zurich, the air suddenly felt like a spa-retreat for my skin here. Every day we run errands, jump into cars, public transports, use make-up (or at least us females do), and clog up our pores one way or the other. Our faces are never protected, always out there and way too often – our skin in general – being neglected. One of my personal goals, or better – life changes – I am trying to implement and get a routine on is the protecting of my skin. I admit it: I love sunbathing, love having a little tan, often enough did not wear sun cream or only those with the lowest SPF factor available, and go swimming from time to time (dries out the skin immensely). Next to drinking lots of water (duh), I now slowly but surely found a routine for taking more care of my skin overall with different lotions and creams. Looking tan is still important, no doubt, but I want to make sure to look as fresh healthy as possible even when I’m hitting the later years in life!
For those of you that know me, know that I love trying out new products on a constant. I am way too easily entertained and convinced by commercials and always have the feeling I need to test everything out by myself. So to say, yes, commercials often enough with the fight. If there are certain factors that make a product especially desirable, such as the texture, after effect feeling or smell, I won’t let the chance of trying it pass by me.
Personally, I love the scent the skoah creams have – my product of the golden hour -, how my skin feels immediately hydrated and stays that way all day. My favorite is probably the sweet love body kream, which holds a scent of cinnamon and vanilla, giving me an instant comforting feel (you know it – when all you want to do is sink into your sofa with a hot cup of tea and play some music in the background). I’ve had the pleasure to also try out dewlux face kream lite, which as I was told, can also be worn on your hands – the one body part that really tells your age and most people neglect. The eye kream is a wonder by itself, feels refreshing (awakening?) and moisturizing. Oh, and then of course there is the packaging. I know, I know… the packaging is not everything. But honestly? It’s part of my interior if placed on my sideboard in my bedroom, and if there is one thing I love, it’s anything pretty, clean, and minimalistic.
Unfortunately, it’s time to go back to reality; Friday is about to start (at the office) and I still need to indulge in my breakfast. Having said that, I wish you all a wonderful Friday and start into the weekend! xo
