A winter skin is much different compared to a summer skin. It is much drier and needs a lot more hydration and attention then in summer. Central heating at home but also the cold wind outside, makes that your skin dries out. Recently I am stuck to a new skincare routine that I think I will never change. I have a lot to tell you in this post. Sit down and take a while to read about my La Mer skincare journey and knowledge..
As you know by now – who followed all my skincare articles and the vlogs -, I struggled a lot with my skin the past few years. From having a baby skin until my 18th, to having breakouts and an almost untreatable skin up until now. Really, I tried out everything. From needling to fruit acid treatments, to changing my died to hundreds of creams. It made me so insecure and uncomfortable. It might sound weak, but I really felt miserable and lost; I thought nothing could help my skin anymore. No treatment, no died, no creme.
Then in the beginning of December I got the chance to try out La Mer skincare, which you may have seen in my La Mer foundation post as well. I literally fell in love. From a moment I didn’t knew what to do, to finding a cream that finally changed my skin – hopefully forever. It might sound unbelievable and like a good promotion story, but when it comes to skincare I am always 100% honest with you. And this time, I really believe I found my miracle skincare for my difficult skin..
A little bit about La Mer
La Mer – meaning the sea – was once founded by a men whom’s skin was terribly effected by a failed experiment. Mr. Max Huber was a physicist and did everything to invent That cream who could help him healing his skin. Inspired by the sea, he discovered a healing sea kelp and combined it with other natural ingredients. 12 years and 6,000 experiments later, Crème de La Mer was born. His skin recovered magically and it became one of world’s most famous creams.
Now this might sound like a fairytale to some of you and if you believe it or not, the creme truly heals the damaged skin. My acne disappeared within one month of using and even my small red scars from all the itching and treatments, are finally disappearing. I feel confident without make-up again and I wish everybody who feels like how I’ve felt, is going to feel this way. That is really the reason why I am sharing this. Next to that, even if you don’t have a problematic skin, this must be the most beautiful gift for your skin during winter time.
I start my day and begin my night rest with the La mer Moisturizing Soft Lotion. For people who don’t like heavy creams, this is the best solution. You just need one pomp to apply it all over your face. The smell is lovely and refreshing and it blends into the skin almost immediately. It is a next level skin hydration, renews the skin and recovers small imperfections – such as my red acne scars. After using this for a month now, my skin never felt so soft. It is such a joy to look in the mirror again and not see a stressed skin, but a nice toned and even skin instead.
Because my skin is really dehydrated (which might cause acne as well), I want to give it an extra hydration boost. An expert might say it is too much skincare, but I enjoy it so much and it works so good on my skin, that I am applying my Crème de La Mer after I applied my moisturizer as well. This miracle cream, which I talked about above, transforms the skin into the best version of itself. Maybe even better. To be honest, I don’t know which product works the best after all. I am just in love with both and since I enjoy my skin so much again, it is worth any investment and ritual.
