I just want to address a quick note on my skincare routine this September 2020. Without being a skincare specialist, I just adore taking time to learn more about beauty and all the ingredients that are used to create powerful skincare products.
I have to say, that on my wish list I have few brands that I would love to try very soon (Vintner’s Daughter, Biologique recherche, Augustinus Bader…) but at the moment I am very happy to start this fall with Bio Effect which has been a favorite since 2019 and Royal Fern, that I am very happy to try.
Just as we’ve become more conscious about our diet and what we consume, skincare is a natural extension of that. Our skin absorbs whatever you put on it into your bloodstream, so I follow the same philosophy for skincare as I would with my diet. I do not follow any fad diet and make sure to enjoy the food I eat every day either if it’s a delicious nourishing salad or something more traditional and « heavy » in a way. I am sure you all understand what I am saying. Without being a skincare expert, I love to invest in quality skincare products that are respectful of my skin and the planet.
So, I make sure that the ingredients are well-sourced with powerful ingredients and formulas. Make sure that the brands remain consistent over time: transparency, efficacy, and natural. I always like to look for words with copyright or patent-protected symbol or formula.
I like to have an open mind when it comes to skincare but, I will never buy products that are expensive and which harmful ingredients. I make sure to avoid as much as I can: Parabens, Ethoxylated compounds, Methylisothiazolinone, Sodium Lauryl and Laureth Sulfate, Aluminum,
Phthalates, Mineral oil…
Don’t hesitate to share some of your favorite brands.
