How to prep your skin for Summer

ENGLISH | ITALIANO Acne, redness, dullness, dry patches. Sometimes your skin got them all. At least, that is my case. When it comes the summer time your skin should be prepped in the right way to avoid sunspots and uneven tan and the best way to achieve it is with regular scrubs and applying SPF everyday. However, the most important rule I learned – that you have yet read a bunch of times – is to always moisturize my skin. Even if it is oily, even if it is boiling hot outside. Remember that dehydrated skin leads to just more acne and oiliness. Below you will find some products I discovered during Spring months that made such a difference for hydrating my problematic skin. FACE | In the pursuit of the perfect moisturizer for dehydrated skin the new Clarins Booster Repair totally changed its texture soothing redness and dry patches. It should be applied twice a day exclusively blended with your usual cream and it is recommended for sensible skin from dry to combination. For acne prone skins you should try to pair the serum with the famous La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo into your …

Channeling My Inner Cara

Beauty, just as fashion, runs in circles. Trends come quick in succession and often make-up takes inspiration from runway looks. Nowadays the focus is all on eyebrows and a few years ago everything started from Cara Delevingne. After several years when over plucking seemed the right thing to do -with permanent consequences may I add – the fever for the British model created an overturn. Starting from high fashion editorials, big wild brows has become more and more popular and the latest normcore wave has seen all over the street style snaps natural and glowy face, minimal make-up and statement brows. La bellezza, proprio come la moda, gira in cerchio. I trend si susseguono velocemente e spesso il make-up trae ispirazione dai look proposti in passerella. Già da qualche anno l’attenzione è posta sulle sopracciglia e tutto è partito da Cara Delevingne. Dopo un lungo periodo in cui si l’uso della pinzetta è stato abusato – e di cui paghiamo ancora le conseguenze – l’ossessione per questa modella inglese ha innescato un cambio di rotta. A partire dai …

About Glasses

When people talk about fashion and accessories they usually forget about some important items. One of them are glasses and, no matter if they are shades or optical ones, they can change your face features effortlessly. Even if on a daily basis I wear contact lenses for practicality, I always bring my glasses along with me so I can wear then through the day. I have a round face and gentle features and for this reason glasses suit me well, especially big and bold frames. But, there is a sad side on this story: designer eyewear is usually quite expensive so, if you are addicted to buying a several range of products, you can’t afford to change them as you would do for other accessories. Thence when the American brand Warby Parker contacted me talking about their new Spring Collection I jumped on the boat and caught the opportunity to talk about this brand created to give an alternative to high-priced eyewear but still maintaining a designer look. Despite its classical appearance, the eight new …

Back to Basics – Fashion Haul

As you may have noticed from my last post I have done a bit of shopping in the past weeks and it didn’t stop with beauty and make-up. When I go shopping I am usually very instinctive and I end up buying eccentric items forgetting about the basics therefore I took advantage of the sales for buying basic clothes. Firstly, I decided to do some online shopping on Asos because I didn’t find anything interesting on physics shops. I read on internet people praising about Ridley High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans so I bought a pair of black ones in Petite. I am a quite short girl so it’s difficult for me to find jeans or pants that fit me good without shortening them and the Petite lines that some brands as Topshop or Asos do are life saviour. Also, I chose Kimmi Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans in mid wash vintage and a Soft Casual Shirt in blue. The two jeans have a completely different fit but I love both: Ridley jeans wrap my legs perfectly …

New Year, New Beauty Haul

Happy 2015 everyone! In fact, even if it is already mid January and I had some days off to work this is the first blog post of the year. Despite my Christmas holidays have been relaxing – ehm, boring – and sickly and then I had a hectic return to work I found the time for doing some birthday/christmassy shopping anyway. But, even though I bought most of these items during the sales, I ended up buying items not on sale. For what concerns skincare, I have a very sensitive skin and sometimes it tends to have acne. Currently my skin it’s not that problematic – also thanks to Braun Face – so I decided to try a clarifying serum to even out my complexion. I bought the Kiehl’s Clearly Correcting Dark Spot Solution paired with the Ultra Light UV Defense Moisturizer. Even if it’s too early to look for results at the moment I can say that I quite like how these products feel on my skin. Also because of my kinda flawless skin period …
