My Skiing Skin Care

Morning & Night

I oversimplified my beauty routine for skiing (and the city). I wasn’t in a beautysta mood and wanted to travel light too. For several months, I am not siciplined for food, sports and beauty.

And it is regularity that makes difference! Conclusion fewer products and less beauty tests (and less discoveries too), but a more selective vanity box. Don’t worry I feel that with the rise of spring, my beautista will wake up soon …

Let’s start with the make-up removal and cleansing. 1. The Karité Brume Confort of L’Occitane (L’Occitane Comfort Shea Mist) without alchool. I use it all times and especially when I feel my skin skirmish. My first step in the morning to moisturize my skin dried by the heating. 

2. The Uriage Thermal Micellar Water is a very good travel product that softly cleans and removes very well. When I am at home, I use it alternates with oils and milks (I have a very sensitive skin).

3. My favorite: Weleda Refining Toner. This natural cosmetic with witch hazel and rose hip soothes and invigorates the skin. At first as I was afraid of a reaction to the essential oils, I only applied it at night. But I have made no reaction. Excellent product that leaves the skin smooth.

Serums & Cream

My other favorite is Nuxe Nuxellence – Youth & Radiance Revealing Fluid (2) : my “looks good” face cream with Passiflora flower. When I don’t use it, my complexion is duller. I love the cream texture and very discret perfume. When traveling, I use it morning and night.

I’ve also taken to the ski the Evocure Anti Age EGF Serum and Evocure Eye Care Serum(1) : with “composition of advanced active principles encapsulated in hyaluronic acid allows it to penetrate deeply in the skin to stimulate natural synthesis of collagen and cell repair” (Evocure).

Forgetting The Beautiful Curls

I have frizzy hair (2). The dry air of mountains can be an ally. But with the helmet (to ski), beanie and heating, I have to attach my hair all the time. And use more super moisturizing care, because they are drier and more brittle than in town.

I complete my hydration with the Nectar d’Huiles Végétales HydraR’Force of Farida b (1).  I alternate with two other creams of the HydraR’Force range (4) : the Crème Fluide Hydratante de Jour (not effective on my hair) and excellent Baume Végétal Nourrissant. I heat its grainy texture in the hands before applying it to the hair.

Photo 3 in my mini bag for skiing: A. I don’t go without applying my star product, the sunblock Uriage Bariésun Stick SPF50+. Hygienic and easy to apply. B. My sunglasses. C. A stick to nourish lips and kleenex. D. My ski pass! E. A mini notebook and pen: who knows if I have a great idea while skiing? (LOL)! And F. A hypster beanie, not so useful under the helmet!

Fragrances & Nail Polish  

I love fragrances! Fidele to Estée Lauder: I really fell for her Modern Muse Le Rouge (1), based on roses and fruits. I find it both light, fresh, heady, modern and really feminine.

2. Hermès Le Jardin de Monsieur Li : this shower gel has a subtle classy fragrance and leaves the skin very soft! 3. The pleasure of bathing in an outdoor swimming pool in a snowy setting at Le Tremplin Méribel. 4. Some red red: the Hema Long Lasting Rouge.

What are your beauty products for ski holidays? I am very curious, it’s always a pleasure to discover new products, so feel free to leave a comment or sent me an email.

Antwerp: Spring-Sum 2015 Trends at The UPR Press Days

I left early in the morning without knowing …

Arrived in Antwerp, I waited and waited for the bus … almost one hour! Note that by walking, it would have taken half an hour max! On the bus after two stops, the driver asked us to get out because he ended his service and invited us to choose to wait for his colleague or take another bus, explaining that today there was the strike. 

I chose to walk twenty minutes under a drizzle that ruined my hair! When I finally arrived at UPR, nearly 2 hours late, I had a scarecrow head! Big thanks to the new hair products (completely ineffective) I’ve tried the night before to have the impeccable hair!

Never mind I’m right on time for the lunch organized by Club Med, for the presentation of its new Spring-Summer 2015, along with the CEO of Club Med Belgium and Luxembourg, Hadi Kamouh and his team. On the photo montage below: No. 1, the new catalog of Club Med.

The dishes cooked by the starred chef Pascal Devalkeneer are really delicious, my favorite: a dish consisting of thin slices of octopus (photo above). While the sommelier Eric Boschman is horrified seeing that I drink Coca Zero. “When you want to return to civilization …” he says to me serving me a glass of wine, LOL!

As I almost exclusively communicate through the Internet,

I have little opportunity to meet the people I work with. So it is always a pleasure to go to press days and put a face to familiar names : )

And of course discover new collections and labels that I didn’t know, such as Rado and Bell & Ross watches, the German brand Dorothy Schumacher, with simple lines and beautiful materials. And the Luz jewelry, really trendy.

On the photo montage above: No. 2, suspense! The beautiful Sam Edelman ankle boots, very soon in one of my fashion posts. No. 3, the Swarvoski necklace with 700 mini cristaux very soon in an upcoming post on a series of selfies I realized. And No. 4, the Ferragamo beautiful sunglasses, very Dolce Vita.

As you know I am a huge fan of sunglasses

And beauty: shortly on the blog, my new tests of l’Occitane products. I also had the opportunity to test the famous Sopolish of Pronails. Stickers to put on nails, on which the polish is applied for a perfect finish for three weeks! Without damaging the nails. To remove the polish, just remove the stickers!

Since the stickers and nail polish were applied (one week), my nails remained perfect! With my usual polish, after 2 days, it’s a disater. On the above photo montage: No. 1, the different sizes of stickers. No. 2, stickers placed on the nails, before limiting. No. 3, the ultra glam and flashy red that I chose. And No. 4, the catalog of the beautiful Spring-Sum 2015 collection of the Swedish brand Philippa K.
