Skin care beyond the surface

Skin care beyond the surface

Skin care and problems are often addressed solely through external skin care, but they alone cannot bring instant and long lasting results to skin issues. Skin care should be approached in a holistic manner where the wellbeing of the mind and body as a whole is taken in consideration.

Genuine Beauty Awards – best body care of 2016

The award ceremonies of 2016 best cosmetics products continues with best body care products. The surface area of the skin on the body is much larger than on the face but body care seems to get far less attention than facial care. You should pay attention to treating your whole body though since when your skin feels good all around your body is a much nicer place to live in.

The safari adventure

The safari adventure

Our African adventure took us from the snow white beaches and turquoise waters to Tsavo park, Kenya´s largest National Park. We slept in tents by the river where you could see hippos and crocodiles, surrounded by a seemingly endless savannah. And yes, I did see giraffes too.

Watamu Treehouse – the yoga retreat in paradise

A yoga retreat is the perfect way to go if you don´t want to travel solo, but cannot seem to find a friend to travel with. I have been to Petri Räisänen´s retreats in Thailand, India and this time in Kenya. Of these three retreats, Watamu by the Indian ocean was an absolute dream come true.

Skin detox

Skin detox

A cleansers most important function is to not only remove make up from the skin but to cleanse the skin of environmental toxins which are one of the most common factors in prematurely ageing skin. A double cleanse done with a cleansing oil and a cleansing milk is a gentle and effective skin care regimen which is in high praise especially among Korean women.
