Luxury Goodies: Winter skincare

Geneva, Switzerland.

Time for some TLC. January is the perfect time to crackdown on those New Years resolutions. For my part it’s my health and self care that I want to focus on. Having been extremely ill recently, I cannot express how much I value balance, wellness and health. Which is why I want to refocus and hone in on something that will be around for as long as I live: myself…!

First things first, the cold chilly air here in Geneva really affects my skin so I make sure to take extra care of it. My skincare routine is like a mini pampering session that I enjoy indulging in when it gets icy cold outside in Switzerland like today. I have been using this routine for over a year now and really love the results so I thought I’d share them with you today.

Since I travel a lot, I look for multifunctional products and Elline skincare range fit the bill just perfectly. What is more, it’s a Swiss premium cosmetics brand that is free of sulphates, parabens and harmful preservatives. Making them my go to option. Each of their products smells luscious and divine. What is more their packaging is gorgeous and ultra luxe. Did I mention the boxes lights up when you open them?!

Aside from this, the actual quality of the products speak for themselves. I opted for the ‘Treasures of Youth’ collection. I went ahead and started with the 24H Intensive Cream. Rich in texture, it really soothes the skin and nourishes it deeply.

On a daily basis, I’ll start with the Elline cleanser. Then I’ll pop on some Clinique eye cream and The Ordinary serum which I discovered last year in New York and absolutely love. If I’m motivated, I’ll use my jade roller to gently work in the serum and then spritz on some Valjean Labs Facial Mist. Letting that sink in. Then, I mix two drops of Clarins Radiance Plus Golden Booster into my Elline moisturizer before tucking in bed for the night.

On days when I feel very tired and that my skin really needs an extra boost, I’ll apply the Elline Miracle Mask and leave it on the whole night. It’s perfect ally against these cold winter days because it contains Hydrolite which helps prevent your skin from drying out. It also has powerful ingredients that revitalize the skin including vitamin E-rich sunflower oil and Capuaçu butter, which is rich in vitamins B1, B2 and B3.
