BEAUTY TALK: mountain must-haves

BEAUTY TALK: mountain must-haves

This year, without a doubt, I’ve spent more time in the mountains than in the last 3 years combined. Which is pretty ridiculous, considering my parents live in beautiful Zell am See. For the first time in years, I’ve actually appreciated this (semi-weird) Winter we’ve had. Lots of sunny days, a bit of snow, and gorgeous scenery. However, just like every year, Winter is definitely the most difficult season in terms of my beauty routine. My skin is already dry, so the heating air and icy winds make it even worse. My lips are usually cracked and my hair flies all over the place. Luckily, there are a few little helpers, that have actually gotten me through the first few cold months really well, so of course I had to share them with you.

1. Temptu under-eye concealer: I received this concealer as a Christmas gift from a PR agency. I didn’t really feel like I needed a new concealer, since I already had one, but decided the size and packaging was perfect for on the go, so I tossed it into my bag. Turns out, this is now my favorite concealer! Why? It has a good but natural coverage, and the center of the concealer stick includes a moisturizing paste, which works wonders on the dry area around my nose (even though it is an under-eye concealer). It might be a little too rich for Summer, but right now it is perfect! Temptu isn’t easy to get, from what I found you can only buy it directly through their website HERE.

2. La Roche-Posay “hydreane bb cream”: This bb cream is literally soo good! Laura Mercier is too hard to get here in Vienna and the tinted moisturizer (which I was using) was constantly sold out online, so I decided to give this one a go. I absolutely love it and have been using it daily for weeks now. The color (I have “light”) fits my skin tone really well and the consistency is sort of “mousse-y” which locks in the moisture for a long time. Plus, it instantly makes your skin look smoother and the pores appear smaller. For me personally, this will probably work all year round, just because my skin is always dry.

3. Guhl “Seidenglanz” shampoo: I already posted about this shampoo here, but it definitely also deserves to be part of my 5 Winter must-haves. It might just be my imagination, but aside from the fact that my hair has been really nice and shiny, I also feel like it “flies” less. During Winter, I usually have super static hair, which flies all over the place. I have barely had that at all this Winter! Plus, the pink bottle is my favorite in the shower right now!

4. Aveda “hand relief night renewal” serum: Mike and I always joke that this is like a spa in a bottle. I apply the serum every day before going to sleep, and it makes our bedroom smell so calming, with a little citrus and just super relaxing. Like a spa! Plus, you’ll wake up with super soft hands!

5. Annemarie Börlind “beauty pearls”: As you can tell, my beauty pearls are already almost used up. I’ve been using the anti-pollution moisture serum underneath my regular moisturizer for about 2 months now and absolutely love it. It is the perfect base after washing your face and preps the skin for the moisturizer. Also, it has a tiny bit of shimmer, which makes your skin literally glow. Another product that I’ll probably use all year long!

    I like using sweet almond oil on my dry skin. I don’t put it on my face, but I rub it into my body, feet, hands and nails. It’s amazing stuff. For my face, I like to use argan oil.

    I also suffer from dry skin and found the best solution is to drink a lot, have regular facial peelings, use cleansing balms and overnight facial oils. These are no secrets but after years of having dull and flaky skin on my nose I finally found my best treatment combination. Regardless, if I forget to drink properly on one day, I immediately get to see the consequences after three days: horribly dry skin. So, drink more than just the recommended 1.5 Liters (not too much either, since you’ll loose electrolytes), use a gentle facial peeling (Paula’s Coice BHA or AHA exfoliants), try a cleansing balm (from The Body Shop or Clinique) instead of alcohol cleansers and give your skin a nice little treat for the night with the Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. These are my current favorites but any other similar products will do just as fine. Say goodbye to dry skin and hello to a radiant appearance!

    Great selection of products. my hair is driving me crazy these days and my lips look really horrible. I always use a bit of Shu Uemura oil on my hair ends,this also works pretty good against this ”electricity” in the hair but only for a few hours unfortunately 🙂
    The bb cream looks quite interesting,I guess I’ll have a closer look at that one.

    als selbst Neurodermitis-geplagte kann ich für das Winter-Wetter die 8hour-Cream v E.Arden schwer empfehlen. Einfach so für die Lippen u zum Schifahren ruhig dünn über das ganze Gesicht als Kälteschutz. Feuchtigkeit darunter – eh klar. Die normale Tube ist oft etwas unhandlich (der Lippenstift in Relation zur Tube zu teuer). Am Flughafen bekommt man aber fast immer auch die kleinen Reisegrößen, die perfekt für die Handtasche sind. Auch wenn die Haut mal offen ist, kann man die Creme gut verwenden… brennt nicht 😉

    Grade vor ein paar Tagen erst gedacht, ich würde wieder mal sehr gerne ein Beauty Talk von dir lesen, und tadaa, da ist es 🙂
    Ich hab auch super trockene Haut, von da her kann ich dir auch ein paar Empfehlungen aussprechen:
    Ich kann die Superdefense Pflegeserie von Clinique total empfehlen, davon die Tages- und Nachtcremen für trockene Haut – ich liebe es.
    Als BB Creme kann ich dir die Dior Diorskin nude ans Herz legen. Spendet den ganzen Tag Feuchtigkeit und sieht einfach top aus, auch leicht erhältlich. Macht einen wunderschönen Glow, plättet das Gesicht aber nicht wie eine richtige Foundation, gleicht Rötungen aber wunderbar aus und perfektioniert einfach.
    Als Duschgel ist die Soap & Glory Whipped Cream Luxurious Showercream absolut top. Riecht wunderbar nach Marzipan und ich muss meine super trockene Haut danach nicht zwangsläufig eincremen.

    Und last but not least als mein all time favorite was Körperlotion angeht: die DREAM CREAM von Lush. Die hat Hafermilch und Lavendel drin (neben vielen anderen wohltuenden Sachen für trockene Haut, ich hab auch schon gehört, dass sie sehr beliebt ist unter Leuten mit Neurodermitis) und glaube mir – ich spüre noch 1,5 Tage später, dass ich mich mit ihr eingecremt habe, so feuchtigkeitsspendend ist sie. Man riecht den Lavendel stark raus, wenn du den magst, würde ich mir an deiner Stelle diesen Klassiker von Lush definitv anschauen. <3

    Ach ja, und die Caudalie Handcreme ist auch top. Spendet viel Feuchtigkeit, zieht aber auch irre schnell ein und duftet herrlich. Die perfekte Handcreme für unterwegs und zwischendurch!

    Die Produkte von La Roche-Posay sind super, aber leider nicht tierversuchsfrei.
    Es gibt da bestimmt einige leidfreie Alternativen!
