Sadly my skin is not perfect, not with the life that I have: between the long days in a confined office, the flights, the late evenings of cramming everything from Pilates to cuddles with Monsieur Baby and the latest episode of The Good Wife whilst writing this blog, the two things I consistently forget to do are sleep and drink water. And, as we all know, that's two thirds of the secret to great skin, besides good genes of course.
However, in beauty mathematics, the following formula has been proven right by years of studies at the internationally renowned Institute of LittleS Silly Mathematics:
(Water) + (Zzzzz) + (Sheer luck) <=> (Good skin regimen) + (Magical make-up)
When it comes to a good regimen, it's all about finding the right products and repeating a good routine, and not being afraid of switching gears if the condition changes... Recently my skin has decided to go all congested again, so I've switched back to glycolic-pumped gels again! If you want to read more about my skin routine check out this post.
Up first, Laboratoire Remède's Translucent UV Coat, aka the very first BB cream I've ever seen, which I've been buying from Bliss for as long as I can remember. I use the white version, which is litterally just a beauty balm with reflective particules and a potent SPF, mixed in with my foundation for an extra glow to my face, seeing that these days I wake up most often than not with a slightly worse-for-wear complexion. It's smooth and light so it blends in really easily, and it doesn't leave my skin shiny or full of glitter-like particles, it just looks as if I had a nice restful week at the spa... Honestly, this does the trick!
