It was a long time coming but my night skincare routine is now up on my channel.
I keep it fairly simple as my skin has been through a lot.
I stripped down all products and now just stick to some basics:
🔸Oil cleanser @shuuemura#ultime8 #holygrail
🔸A gentle soap free gel cleanser @avene_au
🔸Micellar water for any residue
Anti aging and brightening
🔸A Vitamin C serum and now a days a retinol in rotation
🔸A hydrating night mask @origins #drinkupintensive
🔸A lip balm @laneige_kr

Stress and sugar wreak havoc on your skin. In this post I’d like to talk about trucks to counteract the effect of sugar on our skin.
•Get plenty of sleep. When you don't get enough shut-eye, your body releases the stress hormone, cortisol, which mobilizes sugar stores and causes your insulin to spike.
•Speaking of stress, try to keep yours at a minimum. Stress can spike insulin levels just like eating sugar can. The effects of stress are particularly correlated with acne breakouts.
•Eat frequent, balanced meals. Don't think lowering your sugar intake means lowering your food intake per se. If your goal is to keep your blood sugar levels consistent, make sure to fuel up with low-glycemic, high protein food every three hours to avoid insulin spikes.
•Be mindful about how you prepare your food. When cooking starches, like potatoes and foods with wheat, keep in mind that the heat involved in cooking causes a process known as gelatinisation, which can lead to upping the glycemic index of a food item. The takeaway? Avoid starches fried in high heat or that are commercially processed.
•Fats are your friend. Healthy fats, like Omega-3s, keep your skin looking soft, supple and radiant (read: youthful).
Here’s to hoping there’s some kind of takeaway from this post! Switching is not easy I know but it starts with small practices. Do something lovely for your body and skin this upcoming week. Maybe eat better, stretch a little and be grateful. Well that’s what is on my agenda. Have a lovely week right up ahead!
Every time we ask you guys what you want to see more of, one of the top requests is K-beauty, so here are few new additions to our respective routines. Soko Glam kindly gifted us two of their Dynamic Duos (curated by Soko Glam themselves) to test out and review for you, but we haven’t used them long enough to provide reviews, so we’ll explain what each of these products are below instead: ✨
▪️ Texture Refiners Dynamic Duo ft. Etude House’s Soon Jung Relief Toner & Isntree Clear Skin 8% AHA Essence: a no-frills, hydrating, pH balanced toner to complement a liquid exfoliant. We’ve never tried an essence with AHA in it, so this is exciting!▫️
▪️ Skin Soothers Dynamic Duo ft. Thank You Farmer’s Back to Relax Soothing Gel Mask & SkinRx Lab’s MadeCera Cream: The mask is a true gel that glides over the skin to envelop it in a super hydrating jelly. This would be perfect for any time of day, including while showering. The MadeCera cream features all of the classic soothing K-beauty ingredients we love including ceramides, centella extract, adenosine, and niacinamide to keep the skin calm and collected throughout the day or night. It has a thick cream texture, but melts down to a soft gel/cream balm, so we could see almost all skin types loving this. ▫️
▪️ All products kindly gifted by Soko Glam ✨

Can you believe this is our first time trying this cult classic? We’ve only used it a few days now, but we can already tell that it’s going to become a top-shelf product for us. So instead of a review, let’s chat a little about adaptogens. ▫️
▪️ “Adaptogen” is a term that’s becoming very trendy lately, but what does it actually mean? An adaptogen is any botanical ingredient that is used in health/hygiene products that resists stress. They have been used for thousands of years by various cultures depending on climate and location, and in the modern era, they have been implemented and tested in almost every aspect of healthcare, but most famously in skincare.▫️
▪️ In skincare, adaptogens help reduce and prevent stress from manifesting on your skin. Stress can be caused by environmental aggressors, such as pollution, allergens, and radiation, certain foods, etc. and can manifest in the form of redness, congestion, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. Most adaptogens are rich in ingredients we already know and love, such as antioxidants, vitamins, and even some minerals known to increase hydration and speed up repair systems already in place.▫️
▪️ What’s your favorite adaptogen-based product? ▫️

The NIOD obsession continues people. Let’s chat about another incredibly unique product from the Deciem brand: the Voicemail Masque, a plant stem cell based overnight reparative treatment. ▫️
▪️ Firstly, the scent. It smells like death. But we have plenty of products that smell awful (cue the Herbivore Blue Tansy mask—dont @ us! 😂) that we still love. It lingers for a moment, but dissipates fine. And tbh, with the results we get from it, we don’t care much at all.▫️
▪️ Okay so what is it? The main component of this mask is Lactococcus ferment filtrate, so it has an interesting jam-like appearance and texture. Other notable ingredients include squalane, flower extracts, silicones, oregano extracts, melanin, sodium hyaluronate, arginine, and other brightening, strengthening ingredients. ▫️
▪️ What is it supposed to do? The combination of all of these ingredients focuses on increasing the interaction between existing cells in our skin to promote an overall healthy appearance. Wrinkles and fine lines should soften, hydration and moisture retention should increase, and hyperpigmentation should decrease. The term that the Deciem website uses is “uniformity” in how the complexion appears after just one use, and well, we have to agree. ▫️
▪️ Instructions say to apply only about twice a week, rubbing it into the skin for 20-40 seconds, and not applying anything on top. If you have light colored sheets, we recommend applying it about a half hour prior to bedtime or even earlier. ▫️
▪️ It’s difficult to explain differences we’ve noticed when using products like these, but to quickly sum it up, we like to take a good look at each other’s skin in the morning when trying new products to see if there’s a noticeable difference. Nine times out of ten, there’s not. The morning after using the Voicemail Masque however, Safiyah verbalized how glowy and bright Sarah’s skin looked. We’ve only really seen a difference like this with the AOS Mandelic Serum, so that’s pretty impressive!▫️
▪️ P.S. that manicure is 100% courtesy of @artipsstudio nail stickers in Thea bc there’s no way our shaky hands could ever do that haha.▫️
▪️ *kindly gifted but you already know the drill 🙃
You’re up Cleansing Balm!
This little gem is perfect for day and night use, hydrates while it cleanses, removing makeup and impurities with nourishing ingredients that won’t strip away your skin’s natural moisture. (Bonus: it can also be used as a mask for a hydrating overnight facial.)

✨Bliss Bar✨ we have chosen Bliss Bar as the name for this soap :) Thank you so much for playing and congrats to the winner who will receive a bar ♥️👩🏻👱🏻♀️♥️ We need help naming this soap!! Last time we had a soap naming contest we got SO many great entries and had lots of fun in the process, so we’re gonna do it again 👏🏼👏🏼 The winner will receive a free bar of this beautiful natural vegan soap- YAY! To help in naming these, here’s a little bit about them... These creamy yellow beauties are made with a lovely blend of therapeutic grade essential oils including sweet orange, cedarwood, geranium and lavender. We’ve also added organic coconut milk and kaolin clay which add to the gentle creaminess of the lather and calendula petals for subtle exfoliation. Feeling inspired??? Let the naming begin....

Foods for GLOWING SKIN!😲TAG someone who needs to know these SKIN TIPS!🌱
👉 KEEP READING for some SKIN TIPS! The FOODS mentioned above really enhance your skin look in my opinion because I mostly eat them myself (even if I'm a male haha), and I would say that I have a pretty healthy skin! NOTE that every skin is different and if you have skin issues (severe acne etc.) you might want to consult a doctor! Each of these FOODS mentioned above have their own individual BENEFITS to improve your SKIN HEALTH! 😊🙌
WATER is such a important CONTRIBUTOR to a healthier lifestyle and also SKIN since water has hydrating effects! Add some cucumber or squeezed lemon into your water for more taste and more MINERALS while being hydrated! Generally, the recommendation for your daily water intake is about 0.7-1 litres of water per 20 kilograms of bodyweight. Some other tips that are not linked to nutrition are WASHING YOUR FACE 2x times per day or using some moisturizer! ➖
Finally, a really important component to healthy and pimple free skin is ZINC especially zinc supplementation in it's most available form zinc-bis-glycine (best bioavailability in combination with piperine (black pepper)) Zinc produces collagen & elastine both needed for great skin! Vitamin A grows and repairs skin tissues that's why avocados and carrots are great sources as well as sweet potatoes (beta-carotene)! 😋👌COMMENT BELOW if you have OTHER TIPS for GLOWING SKIN? ➖

Selama rontoknya sekitar 50-100 helai, kamu nggak perlu khawatir kok. Tapiiii... kalo kamu ngerasa rontoknya lebih dari biasanya, nah kamu harus mulai memerhatikan kesehatan rambut kamu. 👀
Segera rawat dengan shampoo, conditioner, dan lakukan creambath secara rutin!
Thank you @MonLBowie for your raving review! 💜
"Can confirm this beautiful 100% natural and clean skincare brand is what it says it is! 🌸🙌🏼 I also love that their website has a break down of each ingredient that is found in their products and what the benefits are 🌿"
I’ve been taking things a bit slower since moving to the desert to recalibrate and figure out how to best serve my clients. Dealing with some medical issues has really forced me to make time for myself which in a way has allowed me to feel more inspired and motivated to flex my creative muscles and deliver higher quality results.
I appreciate everyone’s patience as I’ve spent this time to learn this valuable lesson 〰️ it’s important to take care of yourself so you can better take care of others, and most importantly it’s OKAY to do so and cut yourself some slack!
Anyways, enough rambling! I’m so excited for Figgy Co. to launch. Can’t wait to share how all the pieces came together. ✨
