How cool are these products from Aurelia? So cute, right?
As you may know by now, I’m not always a fan of organic products.
I like the idea that there’s pure ingredients in what I use on my skin – I just haven’t always had the best experiences with it.
These products however, I really have gotten a thing for already!
The Aurelia products are BioOrganic skincare, which means they denotes a farming practice, which is like organic farming, a practice where no toxic chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides) are used in the process.
.. And of course these products are made from organic ingredients as well.
I’ve already tried a few of them – and I really really like them.
Some of them comes in a little beauty bag, that is perfect for travel.
So I think I’ll use them when I leave for Toscana next week.
The most exciting thing I’ve tried so far, is the cream deodorant. Sounds cool right?
It’s a powder based cream that you apply in your armpits with your fingers. Maybe this doesn’t sound so charming, but it’s a really good product. It keeps your skin dry, while absorbing sweat and kills any bacteria.
The scent is everything between lavender, peppermint and tea tree eucalyptus.
It really works wonders! You can buy all their products in Magasin.
Have you ever wondered how much damage your skin actually can get from living in a big city?
It’s not just the sun we have to protect ourselves from – there are so many other factors that can have an effect on your skin in a negative way. You can have a healthy lifestyle, but you still have to think about all the environmental factors.
Pollution, UV and UVB, smoking and blue light from your phone and computer, can create visible signs on your skin.
Both now and later on in life.

Boys n’ girls, meet my 5 hydrating friends!
Even though it’s important to hydrate your skin all year around – the sun, beach and dry weather can be extra rough on the skin.
Therefore I’ve gathered my 5 most hydrating friends for you guys. These products really know how to take care of your skin. When I “feed” my skin with these babies, it’s like they’re slurping and drinking every single drop up, until my skin is satisfied.
Some of these products are more active than others, but they all do the job really well.
I’ll tell you which products I use when – and how I use them.
IN THE MORNING
I always use a serum before my day creme. A long day needs a lot of care – and not only my skincare contains a lot of hydrating ingredients, so does my makeup. This serum is created of natural ingredients from blue zones, which is regions in the world where it’s proven that people live better and longer. It makes my skin looking super radiant and healthy. Just make sure to let it sink into your skin before using your day cream.
This cream is so refreshing to use in the morning. It’s a gel kinda looking blue creme, that melts into your skin and really hydrates you. It’s made from mauve and haberlea leafs, that strengthens the skins natural defenses. It can make even my dullest looking skin, look fresh, clean and fully hydrated.

This hydrating cream with macro hyaluronic acid, Moringa Oil and a blend of natural extracts makes sure to preserve a balanced skin hydration, that gives my skin a visibly smooth and bright effect. I use this cream before bedtime, because it’s a little bit more rich and gives me great hydration while I sleep.

EXTRA TREATMENT When my skin really don’t wanna cooperate, I go to more drastic methods. Skin Ceuticals really has some serious correcting products that can change your skins well-being. This extract has a multi-beneficial formula that contains a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acts – which is the most important ingredient when it comes to hydrating your skin.
It supports skin’s natural hydration levels, and help renew plumpness, elasticity and firmness.
Use it before your serum or cream.

Weekly Favorite: Origins Drink Up Mask
So, I guess the summer has arrived. Even though it went from biking with wool gloves to wearing short skirts in like, a day.
Therefore you need to take ekstra care of your skin – and I’ll help you find some of the best products for it.
Maybe you’re going on a vacation soon, or you’re just enjoying the summer at home – either way, there are different sunscreens and protectors for different use. I, for example do everything from a sporty vacation with hiking, sailing and surfing to just relaxing by the beach. I always make sure that I have the right sunscreens with me – and a good amount of that!
THE NO MAKEUP MAKEUP
I hate the stickiness of a sunscreen in your face – it’s really hard to find one that doesn’t make your skin greasy or too white looking. I was super excited to find out that one of my favorite brands now has launched a sun protector with a little nice color in it! It’s super light, blends perfect and gives me that no-makeup-makeup look I want to achieve.

When exercising it’s important to have a good amount of sunscreen on – but again, you don’t wanna get greasy or slippery when you paddle around in the ocean or running the mountains.
This sunscreen is super light, easy to blend into your skin and it has a water-resistant of 40 minutes. It has a SPF50 which you really need when you do some kind of sport for a long time in the sun.

AFTER THE PARTY COMES THE AFTERSUN
Nothing is worse than having a sunburn – it can hurt so bad. The sun is dangerous, so it’s important that we take good care of our skin both before, during and after sunbathing. I’ve always used an old trick, when getting a sunburn. I would put greek yoghurt all over my skin and just lay, while it sank into my skin.
Therefore I was super excited when this product launched, based on the yoghurt trick.Yoghurt is a natural source of lactose, proteins and minerals and vitamins, that can increase the water content of the top layers of the skin, to cool it down and relieving UV-induced redness.

Okay, this is for your who really don’t like sunscreen. You don’t like the feeling, the smell or the look it gives you.
Do you feel like the sunscreen will ruin your makeup or did you just forget to put it on? This product is simply genius! It’s a sunscreen in sprayform – which means that you easily can apply or reapply it all he time, anywhere and anytime.
It’s like a mist that gives you tons of hydration and a SPF50.
This is gonna be my all time product to carry around in my bag this summer.

Now you know which products will help you out this summer. Remember to take care of yourself and your skin – and stay in shadow from 12-15 AM.
Wauw, I don’t know about you guys – but the good weather has finally hit Denmark, and suddenly it feels like the summer has arrived. Scared, excited or how do you feel about it? Somehow the summer always takes me by surprise. Even though you can spend the whole winter eating well, working out and taking care of yourself – the feeling of wearing a bikini never excites me.
I’m not the kind of type that gets scared off by dietary supplements – I actually love them! It’s a good and easy way to get all the nutrition and vitamins that you need.
Vitaviva is a brand that I always feel like I can count on. They make good products, they’re reliable and they actually work.
When the summer comes nearer – or a big event of some sort, I always go for their 15 days cleanse. It’s an “easy” detox treatment, that will get rid of all the toxins and waste in you body. But this summer, I’m trying something else.
It’s not that I have a sweet tooth, but I simply just love food. And if I feel like snacking, I always go for something salt – which is not always good for your body.
Therefor I’ve combined these two products to help me out a bit, before the summer and warmer beach days finally arrives.
NO MORE SWEET TOOTH
Craving crusher is a combination of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrient-rich superfoods, such as Spiraling, raw Cocoa Powder, Guarana, Ginger and Korean Ginseng Powder. You take 1-2 pills a day, which contributes to increased energy, healthier skin, a faster metabolism and as a booster to the immune system – but best of all it is a product that helps crush those afternoon sugar cravings.
BYE BYE CELLULITE
Cellulite away is a complex of herbs, vitamins and amino acids such as Ginger, Cayenne Pepper and Horse Chestnut – yep, this product will kick you hard.
These ingredients all have detoxifying and invigorating qualities that can contribute to burn fat, increase metabolism, boost your circulation and flush toxins from the body.
The most important thing to do if you wanna get rid of your small lumps and bumps is to get a healthy blood circulation – which I also do by dry brushing my skin. (Specially the legs and bum)
