my introduction to skin care

Hello everyone,

today I would like to talk to you about a topic that I have neglected for most of my life – skin care.

Let’s be real here, I was simply lazy and also thought all those stories about how important skin care is were only made up by the companies to sell their products.

Back when I was working as a hairstylist I also learned about the skin and it’s care, but somehow I still wasn’t convinced. I used make-up, sometimes didn’t even take it off when I went to bed. An absolute no-go for me now. Then when I had problematic skin, I thought make-up would hide the pimples and dryness, that it would make me feel better. I was wrong. I felt even more insecure, ‘cuz without healthy skin underneath not even all the make-up in the world would help me looking like I had a healthy skin.

It took me a while and truly was a learning process for me. Today I think the better you take care of your skin, the more confident you will be and less make-up you need. In fact you don’t need to wear make-up to be confident. At least that’s how it is for me. Most of the time I don’t even wear make-up anymore.

If you would like to know more about my journey and learn a bit about skin care, you are welcome to read on.

In this post:

  • my pre-history, skin type & way to my current skin care routine
  • information about skin and impurities
  • tips on how to achieve healthier skin

I will also post more about skin care in the future. I will tell you about my daily routine, the products I love and tools I can’t live without anymore.
