face_products

Είναι κάτι μέρες που η πίεση και το άγχος χτυπάνε κόκκινο. Έχω να προλάβω πολλά, να (προ)ετοιμάσω ακόμα περισσότερα και όλα πρέπει να κυλήσουν ρολόι. Στο τέλος όλα θα γίνουν όπως πρέπει, όμως, ας μη γελιόμαστε, η κούραση και το στρες φαίνονται στο πρόσωπο μου. Θαμπή και ταλαιπωρημένη επιδερμίδα, μαύροι κύκλοι, ενδεχομένως κάποια σπυράκια εδώ και εκεί. Και τώρα τι κάνουμε; Continue reading

Bioten Skin Moisture Cleansing Wipes

I don’t use cleansing wipes. I don’t know why, I just prefer cleansing milk or/and lotions. I just feel that wipes don’t clean my skin well. But a couple of months ago I’ve changed my mind!

As I have already told you, Bioten sent me a few products to try. It was just a few days before I leave for vacations and I was excited about the cleansing wipes. Very convenient to take them with me, in my travel bag; no need to carry a huge bottle of cleansing milk+cotton pads.

The wipes contain  Quince Nectar, an extract  that regulates the natural moisture content of your skin, and Vitamin E that is known for antioxidant and reparative actions. They have a fresh, sweet scent that I love and remove easily and effectively make up and dirt from face, eyes and neck. They are supposed to be suitable for normal/combination skin

The pack contains twenty wipes and costs less than €3. Great quality, amazing price!!!

Honestly, I love these wipes, but I only use them when I am away from home. When I am at home, I can’t regret cleaning my face with my favorite Yes to Carrots cleansing milk and wash my face with a good cleanser. I will make sure though, that I’ll always have a couple of these:one in my bag and another in my beauty case. Just in case…

Have you tried them? Do you use cleansing wipes?

Kisses beauties,

How To: Get Rid of Under Eye Dark Circles and Puffiness

Yesterday I reviewed an anti dark circles product (cliiiick!), so today I wanted to share with you a few tips on how to get rid of under eye dark circles and puffiness.

Let’s be honest! Every single woman who has these two problems asks herself every morning ”How could I get rid of them?”. Am I right?

First of all, you have to find out the reason of dark circles and puffiness. If you know the reason, you will be able to act against them.

Look at your mother, father, grandmother; do they have dark circles? If yes, your under-eye puffiness is a hereditary condition (I got my dark circles from daddy…). What does that mean? Hmmm… Girl, you can’t do much about it. Just make peace with your look and don’t spent your money to all these products that promise to do miracles.

Try to eat healthy! I know! Everyone keeps telling you that and it’s like a blah,blah,blah, in your head, but it is true: the healthier you eat, the better your skin looks. To get rid of dark circles eat foods rich of Vitamin C, E, K iron and folic acid. Wanna some examples? Oranges, berries, nuts, whole grains, beef, cheese, green tea, green leafy veggies. Oh! Avoid greasy foods, too. Bad for the cellulite, as well. xD

Stop smoking and drinking. No more words! You know what I mean!

Try the homemade remedies; cool cucumber or potato slices, cotton balls dipped in potato juice, coll teabags or teaspoons, leaving castor oil overnight… In case you know more remedies, please leave a comment down here!Thank you!

Make sure you drink enough water! Dehydration might cause blood vessels under the eyes to become darker and swollen.

Relax! It’s the best way to help your body look healthier!

Sleep well, sweetheart!!! Lack of sleep could make your skin look paler and reduces circulation, which means that blood vessels could be more visible, giving the appearance of dark circles. Make sure you sleep 7-8 hours.
These are just a few tips to help you get rid of dark circles. If you don’t see any improvement at all, keep in mind that under eye dark circles and puffiness could be signs of a few health problems, like iron deficiency,  nasal congestion, allergy… If you believe it’s a health problem, contact your doctor!

What are your tips to get rid of these two little ”enemies”, anyway? Let me know!!!
