September is when we slowly start to say goodbye to summer days and welcome the beautiful golden season of fall. When everyone is going back to school and work, for me this month starts with a lot of work appointments, events, new projects and new travel destinations. On September 2nd, The Fragrance Foundation Austria honoured me to be one of the expert jury members of this year’s DUFTSTARS 2021.
Outstanding perfume creations were awarded at the DUFTSTARS Gala 2021, with the highest award in the perfume and cosmetics industry.
Even though I turned 37 this year, I don’t see any major changes in my face, but prevention is better than cure. At the beginning of this year, I decided to visit Dr. Karin Bartsch to try Ultherapy. As we all know that, with age— face and décolleté area starts to loose the elasticity and firmness. No matter what skincare you use, the skin won’t be able to built collagen itself. When I heard about Ultherapy’s non-invasive, no-downtime skin lifting and tightening benefits— this treatment caught my attention immediately. Here is why I tried the Ultherapy?
Winter in Vienna is no joke, so trust me when I say I’ve tried all the hand creams out there, and most of them just don’t hold up.
“Your hands are so soft!” this will be the compliment you’ll get, when you use the newest Intense Repair CICA Balsam by Neutrogena. Clinically proven, highly concentrated lotion formula rapidly heals dry hands. It noticeably improves the look and feel of your skin. I keep the CICA balm on my desk and in my purse at all times, even more so now with all the handwashing and hand sanitizer going around. This drugstore formula somehow manages to thoroughly coat my hands without being greasy or leaving excess residue. Also, it’s nice that it’s fragrance-free since I like to reapply throughout the day.
If the second lockdown might have ruined our plans for this season, but it can never stop us wearing makeup. Even though I haven’t been wearing so much makeup this year, just continuously taking care of myself during this time has been a major mood lifting for me.
When it comes about makeup— I don’t follow trends, instead I try to improve my makeup skills and discover what looks best on me. I just love wearing red lips, natural eye makeup, or bright eyeliners, a lot of shimmery eyeshadow combined with nude lips.
Even though we are living in uncertain times, nothing can stop us to look and feel good about ourselves. There are a number of simple things that anyone can do to lift their mood. If we look and feel our best, even if we are staying at home instead of going out with our friends, will instantly lift our mood and make us feel better. So put on some lipstick and pull yourself together.
These latest 2020 lipstick trends will look great with any outfits, on any skin tone, as well as from day to evening looks:
This time last year, I was honored to present my nighttime skincare routine with Estée Lauder, where I talked a lot about my skincare routine. Today I will not talk about the steps I use before I go to bed or in the morning, but specifically the importance of a serum and how to use it for a dewy makeup look?
We all have those days when our under-eyes need extra love. Whether we are sleep deprived, had a long night out, or just generally exhausted—a good eye mask works like magic. From classic cream to sheet masks, or hydrogel masks—the selection is endless.
Do you moisturize your skin every day? If you don’t, here is why you should.
Our skin is the largest organ of the body and one of the most complicated. It is alive and it needs to be treated gently as other organs of the body. When the skin is thirsty, it gets dehydrated. Therefore, both men and women should use a moisturizer twice a day, which provides not only hydration benefits but also helps to look and feel younger. Moisturizers prevent your skin from dryness and dehydration. To fully benefit from moisturizer is when applied while the skin is slightly damp.
The golden goddess – Turmeric has always been a staple of Ayurvedic remedies, Chinese medicine and Indian cuisine. This powerful powder has ant-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging benefits. If you know me, you’ve seen that I love turmeric, not only in my golden milk or meals, but also for my skin.
Neutrogena® was my first skincare brand I used as a teenager, that saved my skin from impurities and dehydration. They have a large product line with skincare products for all skin types and issues. Though for the first time they used the soothing powers of turmeric in the ‘Clear & Soothe’ range.
