Perfect party prep with Eucerin
This year, Christmas came early and I got to open one of my presents at the beginning of December. Don’t we all love it when we get surprised each and every day, especially around special winter holidays? The magic of Christmas can be found in a smile, in a good deed, in a pleasant story, in a wild party. Since we’re talking about parties, December is one of the months fully booked of events, festive dinners, and glitzy gatherings. It’s the month where we need to look our best, embracing the new year properly. It’s also the month where we go to sleep really tired, and the effects of a sleepless night are easily unveiled by your complexion. A good skin care is essential in my book. I’ve learned this the hard way, so I can’t emphasize a good skin care routine enough.
If you haven’t guessed by now what was in my red box, there you have it: Eucerin‘s new party prep kit, perfect for preparing your skin for looking fabulous throughout the party season. Eucerin is a Dermocosmetic skincare brand I’ve been using since I was in my 20s and I can’t recommend it enough. Their world class world class research and development deliver products of extremely high quality that also offer exceptional skin tolerability even for the most sensitive skin types. First off, let me tell you some details about my skin type if you don’t know already from my other beauty posts. I have dry skin, really dark circles, now more prominent since I became a mom, signs of aging, and pigmented skin. Thus, to look my best, I need a complete arsenal and beauty routine. No amount of makeup can hide away signs of a bad skin, so treating it in advance would save you a lot of pain to look in the mirror.
I always start my beauty mantra by taking off my makeup. No matter how tired I am, I need to stay up for two more minutes to do just that. Eucerin Dermatoclean 3 in 1 micellar cleansing fluid is all I need. It is a mild but effective cleansing water which removes makeup and helps skin breathe more easily. It also contains hyaluronic acid which makes skin absorb the moisturizer after cleaning.
My best friend after a long party is definitely Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler eye cream. In my 32 years, I’ve used tens and tens of eye creams. I’ve suffered from dark circles for a long time, it’s hereditary, and in my case, it’s due to losing nights in front of my laptop, and more recently, due to having a 3 months old baby. This cream from Eucerin is a bliss! It doesn’t only take care of crows feet, but also works on both existing and emerging wrinkles. SPF 15 plus UVA protection helps reduce premature aging and the deepening of eye area wrinkles to leave the skin looking smoother and more youthful. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now, so there is still plenty of time to form a strong opinion, but so far I am under extreme conditions to say it works.
Since we’re in the cold season, my already dry skin suffers even more. I’ve tried the Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm for a while now and it calmed down my cracked and irritated skin. It is water-free, so it creates a semi-permeable, protective barrier over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapor, thereby keeping the damaged skin moist and supporting regeneration. More, if you’ve been under dermatological treatments such as laser therapy, a chemical peel or dermabrasion, this cream is well tolerated. It’s also safe to use on babies.
After a month of parties, your complexion needs a break. Don’t get me wrong, I still put on some makeup even if I need to go to the store, but only my Eucerin Hyaluron-filler CC cream. What is that, you might ask? Well, it’s a pigmented anti-wrinkle day cream, that evens light skin tones for a radiant complexion, and plumps up the appearance of wrinkles. CC creams offer Complexion Correction. Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler CC Cream Light does more than correct, it offers effective anti-wrinkle care too. It contains SPF 15+ to prevent premature aging as well. It’s the perfect base for foundation and other makeup, if you extent that party on!
There you have it, my secret for a perfect complexion, even when it’s so cold outside, you’d rather take that party ’till June!
