Morning Skincare Routine/Jutarnja nega lica


        For today's post, I've decided to share with you my current skincare routine. I tend to change it quite often, I constantly add and remove something from it, adapting it to the needs of my skin. At the moment, these products work best for me and I'm happy to share my experience with you.

        Odlucila sam da vam u danasnjem postu predstavim proizvode za negu lica koje svakog jutra koristim. Moja rutina se menja cesto, uvek nesto dodajem i izbacujem, vodim se potrebama svoje koze. Trenutno mi ovi proizvodi najvise prijaju i jako sam srecna sto mogu ovo svoje iskustvo da podelim sa vama.

        Before I start rambling about the products, let me tell you a few words about my skin. I have dry skin, very, very dry skin and as if that's not a real nuisance, I also have some areas on the face that are slightly problematic. My neck, jawline and chin - they'll be the death of me. In those places I have some kind of acne that can be felt on the skin, but  it can't be seen. If you look at my face, you wouldn't be able to tell that I have acne,there's no redness and the skin appears to be smooth, but if you touched it, you could feel the bumps. And, that's not all...my dear skin is also sensitive, I even have a mild form of rosacea on my cheeks and I tend to develop some kind of eczema on my eyelids...you gotta envy me :(

        Pre nego sto krenem sa brbljanjem, dajte da vam kazem kakva je moja koza. Dakle, moja koza je suva, veoma, veoma suva i, kao da to nije dovoljno, odredjeni delovi mog lica su pomalo problematicni. Moj vrat, vilicna kost i brada - to su moji smrtni neprijatelji. Na tim delovima imam neku vrstu akni koje mogu da se osete na kozi, ali se ne vide. Ako lepo pogledate moje lice, necete moci da provalite da na njemu ima akni, nema nikakvog crvenila i koza deluje glatko, ali ako prstom predjete preko tih delova oseticete te cvorice.  I to nije sve...moja draga koza je takodje osetljiva, imam blag oblik rozacee na obrazima i desava mi se da mi se na kapcima pojavi neki oblik ekcema...zavidite mi, jel da? :(

        So, how do I take care of such undecisive skin?
        Dakle, kako se ja brinem o toj neodlucnoj kozi?



        You have to cleanse and tone, everyone knows that, even my cat. And that's what I do. Every morning I cleanse my skin with Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser, I talked about it in this post. Great for sensitive skin, leaves it feeling soft and supple, yet well cleansed.
        Let's talk about toners, which, some say, are an essential part of good skincare routines. But, what do you do when you simply can't find a good toner? Do you keep using a wrong one, or use nothing at all. I had a similar problem, as every toner I had was to strong for me and would dry out my already dry skin. I tried so many different ones that at one point, I decided I was better off without any toner at all. Until I found my HG product (yes, I finally have a HG product!). Burt's Bees Radiance Toner is a miraculous product, gentle and effective, packed full of amazing ingredients. I'm absolutely in love with it :D

        Svi znaju osnove dobre nege - ciscenje i toniranje. I to je upravo ono sta ja radim. Svakog jutra koristim Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser za umivanje, pisala sam o njemu u ovom postu. Odlican je za osetljivu kozu, nakon upotrebe koza je mekana i izgleda sveze i naravno, cisto. 
        Da predejmo na tonere, koje mnogi smatraju kljucnim elementom dobre nege. Ali, sta radite kada ne mozete da nadjete dobar toner? Da li nastavite da koristite onaj koji vam ne odgovara ili izbacite toner iz svoje rutine? Ja sam imala slican problem, svaki koji bih probala je bio prejak za mene i dodatno bi isusio moju vec suvu kozu. Probala sam mnoge i na kraju odlucila da se odreknem tonera. Sve dok nisam otkrila svoj HG proizvod (ooo da, ja konacno imam HG proizvod). Burt's Bees Radiance Toner je za mene cudotvoran proizvod, blag a efektan, pun predivnih sastojaka. ja sam poludela za njim. :D


        Now, after cleansing and toning, it's time to moisturize. Given the fact that my skin couldn't be any weirder, what works for me is a combination of Aloe Vera Gel and a mixture of oils. I mix a little blob of gel with 8-10 drops of oil, mix it together until it gets that creamy texture and apply on the face like any other face cream.

        Nakon ciscenja i toniranja, vreme je za hidrataciju. Ako se uzme u obzir da ja imam izuzetno cudnu kozu, meni trenutno odgovara kombinacija gela od aloje i ulja. Na dlanu pomesam malu kolicinu gela od aloje i 8-10 kapi ulja, kadatekstura postane kremasta nanesem je na lice kao sto bih bilo koju drugu kremu za lice.


        The oils I use are a mixture of my own, in these two tester bottles I have different mixtures. In the first one I have Jojoba Oil mixed with Vitamin E and Frankincense essential oil. The second one has Rosehip Oil, Argan Oil and again, Vitamin E. I don't have a special reason when I use one and when the other, it pretty much depends on what I feel like at the moment. The both mixtures work amazing for me, they keep my skin under control, even though I've been using Avene Cleanance K and Diacneal for over a month, I haven't had any dry patches, which is great. I have been using oils since last August, and they have changed the condition of my skin dramatically. 

        Ulja koja koristim su moja licna mesavina, i ove dve male bocice sadrze razlicite. U prvoj je ulje jojobe, vitamin E i nekoliko kapi etericnog ulja tamjanovca. U drugoj je ulje sipurka, arganovo ulje i opet, vitamin E. Koristim ih svakodnevno, odabir mesavine zavisi od mog trenutnog raspolozenja. Obe su odlicne za mene, drze moju suvu kozu pod kontrolom iako koristim Avene Cleanance K i Diacneal nesto vise od mesec dana. Nemam suvih delova na licu, sto je za mene odlicno. Ova ulja koristim jos od avgusta i mogu da kazem da su drasticno popravili i promenili stanje moje koze.


        For the end, I give you my favorite eye creams. I'm a big fan of these creams, because they keep the area around my eyes well hydrated and I can proudly say that since I started using them I haven't had any eczema appear on my eyelids. I don't use both at the same time, but, again, I follow the needs of my skin. The first one, 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream is great when you wake up with puffy eyes, or dark circles around them, as the caffeine in it helps with those problems.
        Sukin Eye Serum is something I use on daily basis, has amazing ingredients, no parabens or fragrance, just great oils and the same can be said for the other eye cream as well. When buying any face/body/hair product, I examine the ingredients in great detail, as they are what makes a cream revolutionary and not the price or the ads. 

        Za kraj, predstavljam vam moje omiljene okoloocne kreme. Ja obozavam ovakve kreme jer one odrzavaju kozu oko ociju hidriranom i ponosno mogu da kazem da od kada koristim ove dve kremice nisam imala problema sa ekcemom na kapcima. Ne koristim ih istovremeno, vec pratim potrebe svoje koze. Prva, 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream je odlicna za ona jutra kada se probudite za natecenim ocima i tamnim kolutovima ispod ociju, jer sadrzi dosta kofeina koji odlicno resava te probleme. 
        Sukin Eye Serum je kremica koju koristim svakodnevno, ima divne sastojke, i ne sadrzi parabene i vestacke mirise, vec samo dobra ulja. I drugu okoloocnu kremu bih opisala na isti nacin. Kada kupujem neki proizvod za lice/telo/kosu, uvek detaljno pregledam sastojke, jer upravo oni cine neku kremu revolucionarnom, a ne cena i reklame.




Love,
Marijana

  2. Ja sam godinama imala nepromenjenu rutinu, i jutarnju i večernju, a onda je počelo sve živo da mi ne odgovara odjednom, katastrofa. Sada tragam za novim proizvodima koji će odgovarati mojoj haotičnoj koži... Tako da svaki ovakav post smatram jako korisnim :)
