🛸Travelling with skincare🛸 . I’m in Budapest this weekend to celebrate a good friend’s birthday (@karmacoffee) 🎂🇭🇺 And yes, I’ve already booked a facial at Omorovicza. Since I love travelling I’ve become quite good at packing and getting my skincare routine through security (see post from ...) No one should have to compromise their skincare because of security regulations! Besides travelling with sheet masks and other products that aren’t necessarily liquids my other recommendation is to buy 1.2 litre plastic bags and pack your stuff at home. Those extra 0.2 litre actually does a lot! And it always passes through security... 👮🏼‍♂️👮🏻‍♀️ . Which is your best travel advice when it comes to skincare? ✍🏼🔽 . #ernolaszlo white marble double cleanse travel set #biologiquerecherche lotion P50 pigm400 #atelierrebul ultra moisture face mist #caudalie vinosource SOS thirst quenching serum #verso antioxidant turmeric booster #sisley black rose skin infusion cream #mysisleyparis eye and lip contour complex #sisleyparis black rose cream mask #cicamed collagen boost mask #Sisley express flower gel mask #sisleyparis restorative body cream #bioré UV aqua rich watery essence (not pictured) #hm rose absolut perfume oil #vichy antiperspirant deodorant 48h . . . . . #travel #skincaretips #skincare #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareaddict #glowingskin #hudvård #luxuryskincare #mensskincare #skincarecommunity #frenchbeauty

🌙PM routine🌙 . Tonight I'm taking a break from both retinol and acids, and instead focusing on vitamin C and strengthening the skin. But honestly, I'm most excited about finally starting to use the cult balm cleanser from Eve Lom! 🙏🏼 I’ve been repeating this over and over again, but deep cleansing really is key for healthy and radiant skin! ☝🏼 Another newcomer is the Sisleya lotion, a hydrating age preventing lotion. I've only used it a few times but my skin feels hydrated and replumped afterwards. This Sisley lotion goes as an essence, that is after toner but before your serums (yes plural). Dermaceutic TriVita C30 is one of the strongest vitamin C serums on the market. 30% vitamin C, this serum contains a combination of three types of vitamin C to ensure a release of antioxidants over time and to different layers of the skin 🍊🍋🥝 As a final step I use the crème masque vernix from Biologique Recherche 😍 Lately this have become one of my favourite products, especially when using retinol and exfoliating the skin since your skin barrier can become compromised. Masque vernix imitates the epidermis of a new born through a combination of various active ingredients such as lipids, proteins and antioxidant peptides. This cream mask strengthens and repairs the skin, providing ample amount of hydration and protection. Bonne nuit! 🌙✨😴 . #evelom cleanser #cicamed cleanse antioxidant #acquaallerose #sisley sisleya essential skin care lotion #caudalie vinosource SOS thirst quenching serum #dermaceutic TriVita C30 #verso super eye serum #biologiquerecherche creme masque vernix . . . . . #mysisleyparis #pmroutine #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareproducts #hudvård #mensskincare #abcommunity #selfcare #luxuryskincare #healthyskin #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #sisleya

🍊Texture Tuesday🍊 . Texture Tuesday with this detoxifying gem from Nuxe bio beauté, showing a regular jar and a travel-sized one. A moisturising and detoxing mask with plenty of vitamins and orange water that has a clarifying effect on the skin ✨ This mask goes through a metamorphosis, a gel when you apply it that attracts impurities, it turns into an oil when massaged on your skin removing the impurities. And finally when you add water to rinse it the mask turns into a milky lotion, making it easier to wash off 👌🏼💦 . Bio beauté is Nuxe’s organic skincare line, all products are certified organic and paraben free 💐 . #nuxe bio beauté vitamin-rich detox mask . . . . . #organicskincare #biobeaute #masking #detox #facemask #menwhomask #frenchbeauty #texturetuesday #skincarecommunity #glowingskin #hudvård #glow #glowup #cleanskincare

💩Sunday masking💩 . Today I’m Sunday masking with a new fave, the detoxing masque vivant from Biologique Recherche. This stinking celebrity is full of yeast extracts, containing amino acids and vitamin b, which helps to deeply purify your skin and regulate sebum production as well as unclog and tighten your pores. Together with lactic acid, an AHA, the mask leaves the skin clean, radiant and revitalised ✨ . The result is definitely worth the smell! The mask can be a bit tricky to rinse off but with a sponge it’s easy and you get a gentle exfoliation at the same time 👌🏼 . #biologiquerecherche masque vivant . . . . . #menwhomask #sundaymask #selfcaresunday #masquevivant #frenchbeauty #masking #healthyskin #glowingskin #skincaretips #hudvård #facemask #skincare #skönhet #abcommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareaddict #skincarecommunity #cleanskincare

⚗️Guide to acids - AHA⚗️ . Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) is a common group of acids used in skincare that can be found in fruits, milk and sugar canes 🍇🥛 They have the smallest molecule structure compared to BHA and PHA and can therefore penetrate your skin more easily with a more dramatic result 💫 However, this also makes them more irritating, especially if your have sensitive skin. . There are several types of AHAs that varies in size, and therefore some are less irritant. Glycolic is the smallest acid, followed by lactic and mandelic acid, so if you’re sensitive you could start trying a product with mandelic acid and then work your way to glycolic. . AHAs dissolve the upper layer of dead skin cells to trigger cell repair and collagen production, thus reducing fine lines, hyperpigmentation and other signs of sun damage, as well retexturising your skin. Removing dull skin cells will also give your skin a healthy and almost immediate glow. Shedding dead skin will also enable following products to penetrate your skin more easily and do their thing 💪🏼 Furthermore, AHAs work as humectants, that is they attract and retain moisture in your skin 💧 . As I’ve written before, be careful not to over-exfoliate your skin! Keep track of your INCIs, as a lot of products do contain acids. Cleanser, toner, serum and cream, all piled up it might become too much for your skin ☝🏼 Have you got a fave AHA product? ✍🏼 . #theordinary glycolic acid 7% toning solution #dermaceutic mask 15 . . . . . #deciem #acid #aha #exfoliate #hudvård #skönhet #skincaretips #glow #glowup #healthyskin #skincare #glowingskin #hudvårdstips #masking #menwhomask #beautycommunity #abcommunity #skincareproducts

🍂Sunday triple masking🍂 . After some days of lots of work and moving to a new apartment I finally had time to do some serious masking! 💘 Starting with an enzyme peel from Verso that both gently helps your skin shed dead skin cells as well as increases collagen production 💫 I usually follow up with some deep cleansing and today I’m masking with Hanyul pure artemisia mask. This mask contains a mix of various types of clays and baby mugwort leaves. It manages to deeply cleanse your skin without being drying 🌿 And as a final step I’m applying masque vernix from Biologique Recherche, a cult classic that repairs and hydrates the epidermis. Both soothing and repairing, masque vernix is ideal for over-exfoliated and stressed skin, which for me happens easily this time of the year with changing seasons 🍂❄️ .

🎉Wedding weekend🎉 . I’m super excited for another wedding weekend, this time in Palma de Mallorca! 🇪🇸 However, trying to travel with only a carry on, packing both a suit and a tuxedo, plus everything else you need for a four day wedding weekend on Mallorca, is quite a challenge. Luckily you can at least cover most of your skincare needs with sheet masks, which won’t count as liquids and pass through security easily 👌🏼👮🏼‍♂️ For a wedding weekend you want your skin to look its best, to glow and be properly hydrated (just don’t outshine the bride) for all three days. Even for the brunch the day after the wedding! 🍔 So I’ve brought some cleansing masks as well and hydrating radiance giving ones. Will I use all of them? Probably not, but hey I want options! Most of these are new to me so I’m super excited to crack them open! 😍 . Have you tried any of the below? What are your thoughts? ✍🏼 . #verso deep hydration mask, a hydrogel super hydrating mask containing patented artificial moisturising factor that keeps your skin hydrated for up to 120h #rodial snake oxygenating and cleansing bubble mask, with bamboo charcoal to deeply cleanse and peptides and vitamins to revitalise #naruko raw job’s tears, a pore minimising and brightening mask #esteelauder micro essence infusion mask, for deep hydration #verso reviving eye mask, a hydrating eye mask with retinol 8, a less irritative but highly efficient vitamin #ernolaszlo multi task eye serum mask, a mix of algae, vitamin B3 and glycerin reduce puffiness and fine lines as well as reducing dark circles #bywishtrend natural vitamin 21,5 enhancing sheet mask, an antioxidant mask with plenty of hydration and vitamin C and E for glow glow glow . . . . . #sheetmask #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #hydration #eyepatch #wedding #skincareroutine #facemask #masking #menwhomask #mensskincare #hudvård #skincareproducts #skincare #glow #abcommunity #mask #hydratedskin #healthyskin #glowingskin #skönhet

👁Under his eye👁 . Glittery texture Tuesday with some of my favourites. These slimy patches have quickly become one of my favourite products, they’re easy to use and you get instant result. The skin under your eyes is hydrated with visibly less fine lines and dark circles are diminished. Keep them in the fridge and they’re also cooling and de-puffing 🙏🏼✨ Needless to say they’re the perfect hungover cure for tired puffy eyes. These ones from Petitfee were the first eye patches I tried and I still love them. Although I must admit the ones from Shangpree are slightly better, mostly because they adhere better to your skin and don’t slide down your cheek 👌🏼 . Have you used eye patches? Any favourites? ✍🏼 . #petitfee gold & snail hydrogel eye patches, full of regenerative snail slime . . . . . #texturetuesday #eyepatch #menwhomask #sheetmask #hydrogeleyepatch #koreanbeauty #kbeauty #skincaretips #abcommunity #instabeauty #skincare #skincareproducts #hydration #hydratedskin #hudvård #skincarecommunity

🌚PM routine🌚 . After three days of retinol treatment (Differin) my skin needs some hydration and TLC 💖 However, I still want to do some deep cleansing and exfoliating. When you go on retinol it’s still important to exfoliate, sloughing off flaking skin due to the retinol. For exfoliation I turn to my new favourite, lotion P50 from Biologique Recherche 🔥 After double cleansing I do a quick non-drying deep cleansing mask from Sisley. La Mer provides plenty of hydration and nourishment, while the serum for Verso adds important antioxidants 💦🍋 As a final step tonight I’m using a new overnight mask from Dr. Brandt, hydro biotic recovery sleeping mask. This mask is suppose to hydrate the skin and balance it’s naturally occurring flora, while locking in and maintaining moisture overnight 💧 Result is hydrated and less irritated skin and reduced redness, perfect after three days of retinol when your skin needs a break 🙏🏼✨ . #elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm #cicamed cleanse antioxidant #sisley radiant glow express mask #biologiquerecherche lotion P50 #lamer the treatment lotion #cremelamer the revitalising hydrating serum #verso antioxidant turmeric booster #esteelauder advanced night repair eye supercharged complex #drbrandt hydro biotic recovery sleeping mask . . . . . #pmroutine #routine #probiotics #menwhomask #overnightmask #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #luxuryskincare #selfcare #abcommunity #mensskincare #hudvård

💊Guide to acids - BHA💊 . Betahydroxy acid, BHA, also known as salicylic acid (yes it’s similar to the main ingredient in aspirin, no you can’t just crush aspirin and use it instead) is a non-abrasive but efficient exfoliator with larger molecules than AHAs but smaller than PHAs. The specific structure of the BHA molecule makes it lipophillic (oil-soluble), which enables it to penetrate beneath the skin’s surface 🙏🏼 Thanks to this specific quality BHA exfoliates both superficially but it also enters the pores and works works from inside, exfoliating from within, unclogging pores and reducing excess sebum. Besides being an excellent exfoliant removing dead surface skin, because BHA is oil-soluble, salicylic acid is also great in fighting blackheads and whiteheads, reducing the size of your pores, as well as bumps on your skin. BHA is ideal for normal to oily skin, and besides being an exfoliant it has also got soothing and calming properties. Don’t forget to always use sunscreen when using acids! ☝🏼 . #theordinary salicylic acid 2% solution #paulaschoice skin perfecting 2% BHA liquid . . . . . #bha #salicylicacid #acid #exfoliate #exfoliant #glowingskin #healthyskin #clearskin #beautycommunity #abcommunity #inpaulawetrust #skincaretips #hudvård #skönhet #theordinaryskincare

🐝Sunday masking🐝 . I like to finish my week with a potent exfoliating mask like Dermaceutic mask 15, starting the new week with new glowing skin and energy (hopefully). I’ve written about mask 15 several times before and it’s a favourite of mine, a clay mask with 15% AHA and 2% BHA it seriously deep cleanses and exfoliates your skin 🔥 When using such active products I like to follow up with something more soothing and nourishing. Tonight I’m calming my skin with another favourite, an antioxidant rich sheet masks from Leegeehaam. It contains propolis and botanical extracts that together brighten, soothe and moisturise the skin providing immediate radiance! ✨ The third and final mask is Sulwhasoo’s famous overnight sleep mask 🛌 It’s a creamy and thick mask that is super nurturing, and I always wake up glowing and moisturised 💕 Are you Sunday masking today? ✍🏼 . #dermaceutic mask 15 #leegeehaam vita propolis nutri mask #sulwhasoo overnight vitalizing mask EX . . . . . #facemask #selfcaresunday #masking #menwhomask #sheetmask #kbeauty #koreanbeauty #glow #skincare #hudvård #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie

🚄Never stop masking🚄 . It’s never the wrong time or place to mask! Here I am masking my life away on the night train between Tbilisi and Baku 🇬🇪🚄🇦🇿 After an intense wedding weekend my skin was in desperate need of energy and hydration, so I turned to Babor revitalizing cellulose sheet mask. Made out of bio cellulose from fermented coconut water this mask has got the perfect fit and adheres to your face tightly. It’s non messy while being super hydrating at the same time - all the goodness of the serum is soaked up and kept in the mask 👌🏼✨ . #babor revitalizing cellulose sheet mask . . . . . #sheetmask #masking #facemask #hydration #menwhomask #nighttrain #traveling #hydratedskin #instaskincare #abcommunity #skincarecommunity #hudvård

🌺Cleansing balms🌺 . Today texture Tuesday with cleansing balms! One newbie - the iconic Eve Lom cleansing balm, and one almost emptie - Elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm. I’ve been loving the Elemis balm, it literally melts on your skin and has got this wonderful spa scent 💐👃🏼 I’ve used it a couple of times a week when I want to give my skin some extra TLC. The balm leaves my skin feeling deeply cleansed and soft without having that tight dry feeling of stripped skin. Used together with a textile cloth it also acts as a gentle exfoliator 👌🏼✨ Elemis balm also doubles as a facial mask, just leave it on for 10 minutes before removing it with a warm damp cloth. I haven’t dipped into Eve Lom’s balm yet, but I’m looking forward to trying out this legendary cleanser 😍 Have you got a favourite cleansing balm? ✍🏼 . #evelom balm #elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm . . . . . #cleansing #cleansingbalm #cleanskin #cleanskincare #homespa #texturetuesday #skindetox #clearskin #healthyskin #glowingskin #hudvård #skincareproducts #abcommunity #exfoliate
