Review: Institut Esthederm, Intensive Hyaluronic Skincare Routine

During the last couple of years we started to hear about Hyaluronic Acid applied to skincare products but many times there is a misconception that HA is reserved for dry skin, Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar found naturally in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. The HA within our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin and joints, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air, now just like elastin and collagen this one also decrease in production as we get older so here is when we have to do our part to estimulate the production, internally as you can imagine our diet plays a vital role, no rocking science vegetables and fruits are in the top of the list, externally we can help our skin with skincare products like serums, creams, masks that keep the skin moisturised, helping to reduce the Transepidermal water loss.

Gift Idea or Treat Yourself: Phoebe Grace, Sustainable Recycled Silk Notebooks

For a little more than a year I changed many things in my life, I became minimalist with respect to my purchases, I got rid of many things that, as Marie Kondo would suggest “didn’t spark joy anymore”, changed habits that were damaging to the environment, I adopted new habits and took up others that I had left behind and readjusted them to my current needs. I got back to use a planner combined with a bullet journal to organise myself better and optimise my time, but right now taking care of mental health became vital and that is how I starting using a journal again.
