My Beautiful Skin
Let's find out what type of skin do you REALLY have?
Most skincare brands base their products on the following 5 types of skin: oily, dry, sensitive, combination and normal.
Have you noticed how your skin might have changed throughout the years? Even in that time of the month? Or when moving to different climates or environments? Or when undergoing a lot of stress?
Although these are the 5 main skin types to describe the difference in our skin; there are micro skin types that caused by the above.
1- The intolerant skincare
It’s prone to redness, tight and tingly. Severely aggravated by stress, climate change
and harsh ingredients.
2- Dull Skin
Lacks glow. Identified by the slack, horizontal lines and creases around the eyes.
3- Uneven skin
This is the first sign of ageing. The skin might have undergone through too much sun
exposure, causing blotchy and brown spots to the skin.
4- Moody skin
Spots around the jaw and chin. Changes it complexion over the 28 day cycle.
5- City skin
Worn complexion and areas of dryness; dotty pin-prick prone.
6- Sluggish skin
Lack of elasticity, rough and flaky. Pores appear small and wrinkles strong.
We must take into considerations all of these factors before making the decision of purchasing a skincare product. The best way to choose a product is by first identifying your main and micro skin types and feed it the right ingredients, including nutrients and vitamins that will help restore your skin and bring out its beauty.
The main factors to keep a better and healthier skin is by starting with our diet. I know it’s hard to give up all those tasty fatty foods: pizza, french fries, burgers or if you are like me and have a sweet tooth... It’s hard to stay away from all those tempting sweets that are screaming at us every time we are at a counter trying to be good buying our water!
All these things can be replaced by healthier options. In my case I choose to replace my sweets fo a vanilla or chocolate protein shake, mixed with any fruit that is in season and with hazelnut milk....I just recently discover it, so yummy!
And it’s very very important that we drink plenty of water! Nature’s best gift!

Some of my favorite ingredients for a healthier skin
Today I would like to share with you some of my favourite ingredients and vitamins that help my skin stay young and fresh. And I’m also going to share with you a list of 10 ingredients, which are so hard to pronounce, it’s like a tongue twist; that you should keep away from when choosing the perfect skincare for you.
I am a huge advocate of nature and everything natural that it offers us.
I grew up in a farm in the south of Argentina where most of the population where farmers and the other half civil workers.
Mom was always very picky about what we consume, so we grew our own fruit and vegetables, and made our own yogurt, jams and juices... And Mom also insisted in natural remedies every time we got sick, which thanks to our healthy eating, it was very rare; apart from the ocassional winter flues, we were overall consider very strong and healthy girls.
Nature offers us a wonderful world of ingredients, from beatiful fruit extracts, oils and fragances...It’s all there to help our beauty to shine through.
For those ones who’ve been following me until now, you know my top natural ingredient for both skin and body is Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera also known as the “Miracle Plant”, contains a large amount of nutrients, minerals and vitamins; found in the leaf and in the inner gel.
Some of its minerals are: calcium, manganese, sodium, potassium, copper, magnesium, zinc, chronium.
Calcium has an important role in bones ans teeth. Sodium is responsible from preventing body fluids from becoming too acid or too alkiline.
Aloe Vera also contains Vitamins A,C, E, B12 and Folic Acid, which is very important in the development of blood cells.
I could go on talking about all the benefits of this amazing plant that nature has given us since Cleopatra’s time. If you would like to know more about Aloe Vera and its benefits, JOIN my monthly updates where you can learn more about nature beautiful ingredients and ask me anything you want!

The flesh of the cucumber constitutes of mostly water , vitamin C and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe the skin. Cucumbers have the same pH as the skin, making a treat for the skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic acid. HA)
AHAs exfoliate the skin, reducing fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and uneven skin color. Peels with high concentrations of AHAs are usually given by a beauty specialist or dermatologist. It has the unique ability to hold moisture in the skin.
The leaves are a compound of plant pigment called anthocyanins. These are part of the protective mechanism of the plant, as they perfectly respond to environmental challenges such as UV, radiation, extreme temperatures, disease and pollution.
