SKIN
My skin is very very sensitive. I can't put anything to harsh or special on it, or it decides to break out right away. And not a little, it will break out really bad. I have struggled with acne for 2 years now. And I am so over it. In this time I tested so many products to keep my skin under control. After a long search I finally found a routine that works. I don't break out that crazy anymore. My acne is mainly caused by hormonal reasons but it get's triggered by using the wrong products. I've learned if I just keep it very minimal my skin looks almost clear, and I don't have that much trouble with it. So my routine is now super simple, vegan and fairly cheap. So let's go over the steps:

Morning
1. Wash my face with water
2. Put some rose water on.
3. As a moisturizer I like to use a small amount of extra virgin coconut oil, I buy mine at Delhaize. It's nothing harsh or chemically on my skin, and that's what mine likes. The less the better. I also don't put this on everyday, I like to leave my skin bare for 2 or 3 days a week, to give it a rest.
4. If I have real bad acne I put some tea tree oil on my problem areas.

Evening
1. Removing make-up: I stopped wearing make-up for most of the time. But from time to time I will still feel like putting something on. When I do I use my coconut oil again to remove it.
2. I love washing my face afterwards with The body shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser.

I don't like putting a moisturizer or serum on at night because I hate sleeping with the feeling of having something on my face. So I just let my skin breath at night and put nothing on it. 

I love having these relaxing nights were you put on a face mask and just do nothing. But I haven't really found a mask that works for me. I bought this really expensive one.. And it breaks me out like crazy, it's like nothing I have ever experienced before. I will wash it off and 3 more pimples have popped up... So no masks for me now sadly! If you have any good recommendations, let me know!

HAIR
My hair is very thin and pithless. But we try to make it work. Honestly I don't really care much about my hair, I have sort off given up on it already. I used to put so much effort in getting it thick and more volumes. I will never have such hair so why not let it be all thin and natural. Definitely no hairspray for me anymore. It makes my hair feel so gross. I always wash my hair in the morning because I am the wildest sleeper I guess, my hair looks like that of a crazy person when I wake up. So we need to tame that. I was my hair 2 max. 3 times a week. As a shampoo I use Lush rehab or Rituals The Ritual Of Sakura Shampoo and to condition it I love Davines Love conditioner. When my hair needs a little extra love I use this hair mask also by Davines called Minu. And that's everything I do to my hair.

    1. Thank you so much! I have tried so many different things, but I always come back to the most amaturistic way of editing my pictures which is Picasa... I use the cinemascoop filter. But sometimes I'll also use Lightroom and photoshop, it depends :)

  2. I think what is essential for every skincare routine is the cleansing part. Everything else is just a bonus! I also believe in applying minimal products on my face as much as possible too. I love love placing face mask on my at night! I do it twice a week. I especially like the Korean brands such as Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and Innisfree. Are you familiar? :)
