Holiday Skincare and Makeup

My Skincare During the Holidays:

I followed a different routine during my July holidays in what respects to skincare and makeup.
- In the morning, I washed my face with La Roche Posay Effaclar Mousse, which, as I have written before, is an extremely soft cleanser. Then I used Avene Solar Emulsion Oil-free SPF 50, which is a very good sunscreen for acne prone skin. It is a bit thick and it leaves a sort of whitish shade on the face but it does not break me out and it totally prevented my skin from sunburnt. After some time at the beach bathing in the sea, I applied Clinique Super City Block SPF 25 on top.

- At night, I used La Roche Posay Physiological Cleansing Gel to get rid of the solar filters, then the LRP Mousse and then I made my makeup because went out every night. Back again, I just double cleaned again before going to sleep.

I have to say that my skin condition improved a lot during the holidays. It must have been the Mediterranean sea water and the sun because most of my scars faded away and I hado no new spots. even my body felt soft and moisturized like never before.

It could also be because I drank lots of water to combat the hot weather and I did not eat unhealthy food or sweets.

So it was probably the combination of these three factors: the sea water, simplicity in my skincare routine and a more healthy diet. I think that the lack of stress was relevant as well. As soon as I got home, I started touching my face and squeezing spots. So I have new blemishes now.


My Makeup During the Holidays:
As what respects to my night-time makeup, it barely consisted of:

- Avene Couvrance Cream Compact in shade Doré.
- Nars The Multiple in St. Barts for contouring and Copacabana as highlighter.
- Nars The Multiple in South Beach as blush
- Nars Viva Las Vegas lipstick
- Clinique Black Diamond eye pencil in waterline
- ArtDeco eyeshadows in white, brown or purple depending on clothes
