Luck, Genetics and Good Skincare

“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty. Life

shapes the face you have at thirty. But at fifty you get

the face you deserve.”

― Coco Chanel

I agree wholeheartedly.

With one correction: I see more and more people in their teens and 20′s with skin issues.  I feel like we grow up too fast.  Late nights, fast food, tanning beds and harsh skincare routine all add up to premature aging, skin discolorations, irritated skin and breakouts.  Skin gets a nice dose of heavy makeup, premature use of unnecessary anti-aging products and countless nights out followed by next day dehydration (a few too many glasses of wine, anyone?).  By the time a woman is 30, her skin has seen it all.

20 is the new 30 when it comes to skin and aging.

This is a short blog entree, so I won’t even get started on the connection between nutrition and beautiful skin…

I believe health comes from the organic whole foods that we eat. So, assuming everyone is eating organically grown balanced diet (because the world is a perfect place) here’s what I think the next thing is on the list to perfect skin:

Your ritual.

In the battle of genetics and lifestyle, lifestyle almost always wins.

This is such a huge motivation for why I do what I do.  Besides of the quality of what goes on your skin, your daily rituals will make the difference between the smoothness of your skin, its tone, vitality and frankly, how good you feel about yourself and your day.

Being a brand new mommy, I fall off the wagon of the daily rituals I created myself.  A week later, I can tell my face desperately needs to be revived back to life. These are my absolute  go-to’s:

A few days of this skincamp™ and I feel like I’m right back to being the best version of myself. It feels pretty satisfying to be just that.

We invest so much time into things that don’t matter day after day.  I encourage you to take the extra few minutes and spend some time creating the best version of yourself.
