Maintaining healthy skin with a busy lifestyle is much easier than you might think.
Looking at this photo you’re probably thinking – “what is she talking about busy lifestyle, this looks super relaxing”. However imagine you go to Strasbourg for the weekend, on Tuesday fly to Singapore for 4 nights and the weekend after that already off to Como for another hotel review. That was me in November and that is busy!
The one thing I have learnt is in order to function top with such a busy life you need to look after yourself! Which includes looking after your skin.

5 Golden Rules to Maintaining Healthy Skin with a Busy Lifestyle
Drink lots of water
Even a small amount of dehydration, has an effect on how you function. The instant you’re dehydrated, it will take a toll on your skin. Great article about dehydration here.
2. Get enough Vitamin c
Did you know that vitamin C leads to fewer wrinkles. Researchers have found that skin exposed to vitamin C for long periods of time can produce up to eight times more collagen! I swear by it and for years have been taking vitamin C supplements – as a result I have been a lot less sick than I used to be! Interesting article here.
3. Up your skin care
Earlier this year I wrote about a skin challenge I did with Lierac skin care (link to post). I’m still super happy with this brand but for this month I decided to up my skin care regime with the Lierac Premium range. First time ever I managed to fly long haul without feeling dry tight skin.
These are the 4 products that have been glued to me for November survival.
Le Masque Supreme – I used it prior to each flight – amazing the difference it made to my skin. Even after a 12 hour flight my skin still felt fresh.
Premium Elixir Oil and Eye cream – have become my morning ritual. At this time of year my usual creams are never enough and I find myself plastering layers of additional cream during the day. But with this combination I am totally set for the day – finally success!
Premium Night cream – the perfect solution makes my skin still feel fresh when I wake up in the morning.
So what makes this cream special? I looked into the ingredients and saw each of these products contain extracts of Black Flowers : black orchid, rose black baccara and black poppy. These have been found to have fabulous protective and anti-oxidant properties. It is said that in the hearts of these flowers hides the secret of youth!
Super interesting article about using Flower Power for skincare here.
I love the fact that Lierac has a fair pricing policy.
Surfing online I see there is a special Christmas pack of this collection available online (currently CHF 205 instead of CHF340), international shipping.
4. Get enough Sleep
There is a reason why we call it beauty sleep. Aim for at least 7 -8 hours sleep a night. 5 hours sleep a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as 7 would.
Regular exercise makes people up to 9 years younger! Remember to drink more when exercising however!
