My Morning Skincare Routine

A month of stress and bad skin days have definitely convinced me to grant importance to a good skincare routine. Drinking a lot of water and being on a balanced diet helps ensuring a healthy complexion, but to be honest I'm not really watching what I eat very closely - or else I am, I am just not strong enough to resist nibbling on some pâtisseries or nutella - so I tend to rely more on my skincare routine. I have got normal/dry skin in winter, that's why I tend to lean forwards products which are nourishing and hydrating but still not too heavy or rich because of the combination nature of my skin. In the evenings I am used to taking some time to layer on all sorts of products, but in the mornings I like my routine to be quick and efficient: I have realised that my skin responds really well to consistency and a minimal routine.

New Country, New Habits

Adapting to a new country may sometimes be less difficult than it seems. I always find the first weeks very exciting as your time is filled up with never-ending discoveries, whether it be your next favourite coffee shop, striking spots of the city or amusing cultural features. I have been living in Scotland for a few weeks now and I can say that I am adapting pretty well. I have come to notice a few things which please me a lot, and that I wish were part of my life on a daily basis simply because they make me happy. Some habits I am getting into are more about integrating a healthy lifestyle than being purely British as I am convinced that it's more a question of the mood you're in as well as your personal taste!

Removing your makeup with Nivea

One of the urgent things I had to do on the very first day after I had unpacked was buying a few necessities I couldn't bring with me on the plane, a.k.a. makeup remover and cotton pads. Just like old times, I burst into Boots and was on cloud nine when I laid my eyes on the offers popping here and there before me: most of the time certain items are half-priced or the third you buy is free, a privilege which you would certainly never get in France.
