I have been asked over the years several questions about my skin care routine and the fact that I can tell you for sure : it is constantly changing and evolving. The routine I had these three years ago absolutely won’t correspond to my skin anymore and won’t feed it’s needs like it did at the time. My skin, your, our skin is constantly changing and adapting to it’s environment, to the temperature and to the damage you are being exposed to. I’ve never been using one product religiously, but have been coming back constantly to the same pots of creams and cleansers when my skin needs this feeling it knows : a feeling of comfort and hydration.
Since I travel a lot, I do go through some drastic changes all the time, which believe it or not will have a big impact on the health and the outlook of my skin. The food, the air, the pollution, even the water you’re using : all of that will impact your skin. Obliging my skin to experience a new climate each time has been very harsh… It would get very inflamed from time to time, tired and stressed out (yes your skin can feel the pressure too you know!). Not to mention that the lack of sleep is v.e.r.y bad for your poor little cells.
So I went on the search for the perfect products that could give me that super fresh, healthy outlook even if I slept only 4 hours that night. I’ve instantly been seduced by some asian cosmetic brands who always seem to have one step ahead on the market and propose incredible textures. During my research, I discovered exactly what I was looking for : Kenzoki.
First of all, the name sounds familiar well because it is indeed the sister cosmetic label of your favorite fashion brand Kenzo! Little did I know that they had such a fantastic skin care line. I went ahead and first started with the “Belle De Jour” moisturizer to finally get progressively the rest of the line : I am so hooked you guys. It really soothes the skin and nourishes it deeply while having this amazing airy subtle scent that makes you feel super zen.
On a daily basis, I’ll use the serum, then the eye cream and the moisturizer. Then on days where I feel like my skin really needs an extra boost I’ll have the mask for the whole night. All the products are from the “Belle de Jour” line, it’s definitely my favorite from Kenzoki. I recommended these goodies to several friends, with very different skin types, who also were very frustrated about the “tired” appearance of their skin and needed a glow boost. They tried it and loved it. It’s very hard to go wrong since it’s adapted for all skin types.
Don’t even get me started on the packaging. Isn’t it just perfect? No guys, I didn’t get the products for the nice pots. Although… I might have been seduced…! I mean I say big yes to a product that works well and look as adorable as this!
Hope this article helps you guys to find out your perfect skin care products. I know how hard it is, there’s so much choice in the shops right now that it can get very overwhelming. I think it’s important we all share our experiences even if all our skin are different. In the end you can never know, if it works for your friend, perhaps it won’t for you?
I of course can’t wait to share with you more of my tips. But always remember, it’s not only about the creams you’ll use, it’s your lifestyle that will make a difference on your general appearance. So make sure to sleep tight, eat healthy and drink lots of water. Oh and above all… to smile! Nothing’s prettier than a smile, it’s the best beauty product you can get on the market ;) xxx
