Beauty regimen: how to keep your skin in great condition.

Beauty regimen: how to keep your skin in great condition.

As a model taking care of my skin is very important to me. I love to use all natural products and cosmetics. Here are some of my favorite products: Babor, Avene, Clarins, Clinique.

I have decided to share my face treatment experience.

I tried many different things, but there is one treatment that I found is the best if you have black spots on the face or any other imperfections.

So first of all clean your face with foam ( I personally like Babor or Avene foam), then prepare the mask and keep it on your face for 20 minutes.

Mask recipe: add white clay, view drops of tea three oil and Babor Skinovage Intense Purifying mask. Mix it all and apply on your face.  After 20 minutes wash it with warm water.

Afterwards I am applying Clinique cream under eyes, and Clarins cream for face to moisturize the skin.


Why You Might Not Be Getting The Fitness Results That You Want

Why You Might Not Be Getting The Fitness Results That You Want

As an ex-pro swimmer I know how hard it can be to motivate yourself to workout. Sometimes all you want to do is lie on the couch. For other people the issue could be that you are consistently working out but aren’t seeing the results that you want. For everyone who isn’t seeing the fitness results that they want, these tips are for you:

You’re doing the same workout routine every time

Don’t get me wrong, finding a workout activity that you love, such as yoga (my personal favorite), kickboxing or spin, is amazing. It gives you a reason to get to the gym. But if your favorite activity the only exercise that you’re doing time and time again then your body will get very good at these particular movements and eventually you won’t continue to see your desired results anymore. In order to stop this from happening try something new! You never know, you just might like it more!

You aren’t challenging yourself

Many studies are showing that the intensity of a workout is a more important factor when it comes to weight loss than the duration of it. Yeah, if you run on the treadmill for an hour that’s great. But it wouldn’t be as great as a HIIT session.

You’re overeating

One of the biggest parts of losing weight is watching your caloric intake. Exercising and keeping yourself at a caloric deficit are the two most important factors that come into play when trying to lose weight. No matter how much you workout, if you are taking in more calories than you are burning then you just simply won’t lose weight. Keep in mind that it’s important to eat. Eating nothing is not healthy and will not help you get the results that you want.

You’re too hard on yourself

Maybe your results are going great but you’re not truly seeing it because your expectations are a bit off. There are so many people who have their heart set on seeing a specific number on the scale. It’s important to keep in mind that the scale isn’t the end all be all. There are many other factors that come into play when talking about a healthy and fit body.
