Turn your skin to porcelain


This one's for you!

An article to answer all the dozens of emails and messages I got, each asking about skin care.

I'll show you my beauty routine, tell you about the products I use and their benefits. Occasionally, I'll probably add some other details you didn't really ask for, but you'll just have to put up with me, 'cause I really can't help myself when it comes to coffee and vanilla.

So, let's get this party started..


Acesta e pentru tine!

Un articol sa raspunda zecilor de mailuri si mesaje care contin cate-o intrebare legata de ten.

Iti prezint mai jos rutina mea de beauty, produsele pe care le folosesc si efectele lor benefice. Si, din cand in cand, ma voi mai scapa cu cate-un detaliu, pe care nu l-ai cerut, dar care e prea parfumat sa-l pot lasa in urma.

Hai sa vedem..

What about you?

First I want to make sure you know what kind of skin you have. You can skip this part if you're already familiar with the differences between them.

Skin types fall into the following basic categories:

  • Dry ( prone to premature wrinkles and fine lines, flaking and dryness sensation)
  • Normal ( doesn't usually raise issues and requires minimal care to keep it healthy and shiny)
  • Oily ( shiny, greasy to the touch and prone to blackheads)
  • Mixed ( oily in certain areas and dry or normal in others)
  • Sensitive ( prone to acne and severe allergies)


..is normal - but it tends to get greasy. If it sounds familiar, then my habits should be more than perfect for you too. If not, then don't worry! - I'll give you some tips on how to adapt my tweaks to your skin.

AL Tau cum e?

Prima data vreau sa ma asigur ca stii ce fel de ten ai. Poti sa sari peste partea aceasta daca deja te-ai familiarizat cu diferentele intre ele.

In general, tipurile de ten intra in urmatoarele categorii:

  • Uscat ( predispus la aparitia ridurilor premature si liniilor fine, exfoliere si senzatiei de uscaciune )
  • Normal ( nu ridica de obicei probleme si necesita ingrijire minima pentru a-l mentine sanatos si stralucitor )
  • Gras ( lucios, gras la atingere si predispus la aparitia punctelor negre )
  • Mixt ( gras in anumite regiuni si uscat sau normal in altele )
  • Sensibil ( predispus acneei si alergiilor severe )

Al meu?

..e normal - dar cu tendinta de ingrasare. Daca-ti suna familiar, atunci obiceiurile mele ar trebui sa-ti fie mai mult decat perfecte. Daca NU, atunci nu fi suparata! - Iti voi da cateva sfaturi cum sa adaptezi trucurile pentru tenul tau.


Daily routine

Good Morning!

..with eyes half closed, I find my way to the mirror. I rinse my face with warm water. After putting my toothbrush down and taking my face out of the towel, I apply a thin layer of moisturizing cream. I wait 10 minutes to let it sink in the skin. Only then do I begin my preparations for my future makeup. (Mascara and lipstick in burgundy, brown or black - darks- a new passion.)

I'm sure you've seen many posts on Instagram with this elegant box, black with a white bow on top. Fereto Organics products come in this beauty box. I discovered them recently. - And I just had to know why everyone is so excited about them, right? - It didn't take long for these products to get into my life, almost in every corner. ( They're made without any artificial substances! - Geeperz!!)


The first thing Fereto did, after it won my heart with the package, that is, was to replace my usual face cream with Hydra MAT Sensitive. It's a special product that moisturizes, while reducing excess sebum from the T zone.

In other words: the area around the nose and forehead remains matte, even if I'm away from home all day, without refreshing my makeup. Ta-dam, no more disappearing to powder my nose!

If your skin is oily or normal, then it will probably be a life savior for you too! If it is dry or sensitive, I would suggest you stick to the simple moisturizer.


During the day

.. I usually don't really get back home in the middle of the day to clean my skin. If I'm still out, I make great efforts not to touch my face too much - but with Andrei snuggling me all the time, it's pretty pointless.

If I do get home though, then I never hesitate to wash up my face with a cleansing gel, one which removes both makeup and excess sebum, without drying the skin. ( this one )


It's not okay to disturb the natural production of skin sebum. If we dry out our skin too much, it will react by producing even more discharge than before. That's something we DON'T want! Therefore we must look for products that do not affect the skin's hydrolipidic barrier.

Meaning: it's not too smart to wash your face with soap, but if you do, you must compensate with a greasy face cream, to balance it out.


Good Night!

Generally, I think it's better to use products created by the same company, as a set, because they are designed in such a way that they give the best results together.

Because I feel they complete each other, I use the exfoliating gel from Fereto before I go to sleep. Then I add some face cream and a different product for the area around the eyes, where the skin is more sensitive and more violated ( by makeup, of course.)

I also comb my eyelashes and eyebrows  gently with a small brush dipped in castor oil. For my lips a natural lip balm does the trick.

Rutina Zilnica

Buna dimineata!

..cu ochii pe jumatate inchisi, imi fac drum catre oglinda. Imi clatesc chipul cu apa calduta. Dupa ce las periuta de dinti jos si-mi ridic privirea din prosop, aplic un strat subtire de crema hidratanta. Astept 10 minute sa intre complet in piele. Numai dupa aceea incep pregatirea lui pentru machiaj. ( Rimel si ruj burgundy, maro sau negru - noua pasiune. )

Sunt sigura ca ai vazut pe Instagram cate-o postare cu o cutie eleganta, neagra cu o funda alba inodata precis in varf. In cutiuta aceasta vin produsele de la Fereto Organics. I-am descoperit de curand. - Doar trebuia sa stiu si eu de ce e atat de entuziasmata toata lumea, nu? - N-a durat mult pana sa aduc in viata mea aproape toate produsele lor. ( Nu contin silicon, parabeni si alte substante artificiale )


Primul lucru care l-a facut, dupa ce m-a cucerit cu cutiuta, desigur, a fost sa-mi inlocuiasca crema obisnuita cu Hydra MAT Sensitive. E o crema speciala, care hidrateaza in timp ce reduce excesul de sebum din zona T.

In alte cuvinte: daca stau o zi intreaga in oras fara sa-mi pot reimprospata machiajul, zona din jurul nasului si a fruntii ramane mata. Ta-dam, nu mai dispar sa-mi pudrez nasul!

Daca tenul tau e gras sau normal, atunci probabil va fi un life savior si pentru tine! Daca e uscat sau sensibil, ti-as sugera sa ramai la crema hidratanta simpla.


Pe parcursul zilei

.. de regula nu prea ajung pe acasa sa-mi pot curata din nou tenul. Daca sunt inca in oras fac eforturi mari sa nu-mi ating pielea fetei pe cat posibil - dar cu Andrei smotocindu-ma non stop, e in zadar.

Daca totusi ajung pe acasa, nu stau pe ganduri si imi spal bine de tot cu un gel de curatare, care indeparteaza atat machiajul cat si excesul de sebum, fara sa usuce pielea. ( acesta )


Nu e bine sa dereglam productia naturala de sebum a pielii. Daca uscam tenul prea tare, aceasta va reactiona, producand si mai multa secretie decat pana atunci. NU ne dorim asta! De aceea trebuie sa cautam produse care nu afecteaza filmul hidrolipidic al pielii.

Adica: nu e bine sa ne spalam cu sapun, dar daca totusi o facem, trebuie sa compensam cu o crema grasa, care sa readuca tenul la normal.


Noapte buna!

In general, consider ca e bine sa folosesti produse create in set de la aceeasi firma, pentru ca acestea sunt conceputa in asa fel, incat impreuna sa dea cele mai bune rezultate.

Fiindca se completeaza, folosesc inainte de culcare gelul exfoliant de la Fereto, apoi cremele pentru fata si zona ochiilor, unde pielea e mai sensibila si mai agresata ( de machiaj, bineinteles. )

Genele si sprancenele le piaptan usor cu o periuta unmuiata in ulei de ricin, iar pe buze aplic putin balsam natural.


Buh-Bye Make-up

Never use cleansing wipes! - I do not recommend them, at all. I can't imagine a skin type that they're appropriate for. No matter how soft they are, they will always scratch the skin, pressing makeup in your pores. - That's not okay.

Find a cleansing gel for this and rinse thoroughly. If it doesn't manage to take off everything,use a cream cleanser or cleansing water, on a cotton disk or sticks, after wards.

If you use cleanser cream or water, don't apply face cream on top - they're greasy enough anyway. You should wipe your face again with a little tonic water. But I suggest you just go for the first option.


Let your lover do your cleansing for you. One evening, when you come back from a night out together. It will be an absolutely great experience for both of you. It's more intimate than you might think: you'll be surprised how graceful a man's touch can be and he will come to understand you much better .. ah, and it usually ends up with facial massages mmm .. Andreeei?


Niciodata nu folosesc servetele demachiante! - Nu-ti recomand nici tie. Nu-mi pot imagina un tip de ten caruia sa i-se potriveasca. Oricat de catifelate ar fi, vor zgaria mereu tenul, apasand machiajul in pori. - Nu e okay.

Gaseste-ti un gel de curatare pentru demachiere si clateste cu apa din abundenta. Daca nu indeparteaza tot, mai bine foloseste un demachiant crema sau apa micelara la sfarsit, pe un disc de vata sau betigase.

Daca folosesti demachiantul sau apa micelara, nu mai aplica si crema peste - ele incarca oricum. Ar trebui sa-l mai cureti apoi cu putina apa tonica, dar mai bine mergi pe prima varianta.


Lasa-ti iubitul sa te demachieze intr-o seara, cand veniti inapoi de la o iesire in doi. Va fi o experienta absolut deosebita. E mult mai intim decat ai crede: tu vei fi surprinsa cat de finuta poate fi o mana de barbat, iar el va ajunge sa te inteleaga mult mai bine.. ah, si se lasa deobicei cu masaje faciale, mmm.. Andreei?


Weekly Ritual

This is illustrated in the photos above!

Once a week, sometimes even twice, I stop one hour of the day.. while the pouring hot water fogs up the mirror and the foam mountains are getting taller, I run to make myself a cup of coffee with cinnamon.

I place it on a tray along with the jar of honey. In a cookie jar I pour the coffee grounds, then I light blissful candles to life. Lately, I also take my Toya Shop scented sticks I got as a gift. ( They gave me a gift for you too, by the way; Use the code DYROGUE to get a 15% discount on www.toyashop.ro )

"It's vanilla, how did they know? .."

The mail man carrying their package arrived during such a ritual ( can't be a coincidence.) The perfumes mix and daze.. relaxing me from head to toe.

After I pour a teaspoon of honey in my cup of coffee, I add two in the cookie jar filled with coffee grounds.

Ritualul Saptamanal

E ilustrat in pozele de mai sus!

O data pe saptamana, cateodata chiar de doua ori, imi opresc cate o ora din zi.. in timp ce apa fierbinte abureste oglinda baii si muntii de spuma cresc tot mai inalti, eu fug sa-mi fac o cafea cu scortisoara.

O asez pe o tava, alaturi de borcanul de miere. Intr-o bomboniera vars zatul de cafea si aprind lumanarile aromate. Mai nou, aduc si betigasele parfumate pe care le-am primit de la Toya Shop. ( Am primit si un cadou pentru voi, discount 15% cu codul DYROGUE pe www.toyashop.ro )

"E vanilie, de unde stiau?.. "

Curierul cu pachetul lor a ajuns tocmai in timpul unui astfel de ritual ( nu cred ca e o coincidenta. ) Mirosurile se imbine si atmosfera ma relaxeaza pana la varful picioarelor.

Dupa ce imi pun o lingurita de miere in  cafea, mai torn doua in bomboniera.

Facial Treatment Coffee and Honey on DYROGUE

I start by massaging the coffee grounds into my skin, leaving the honey penetrate my pores. I do it slowly, but adding pressure. The steam opens up my pores and the roughness of the coffee grounds exfoliate deeply, leaving my skin smooth. At the same time, it stimulates blood circulation to the face, revitalizing all imperfections and healing all tissue.

Incep prin a-mi masa fata cu zatul de cafea, lasand mierea sa-mi patrunda in pori. O fac incet, dar cu presiune. Aburii deschid porii, iar asprimea cafelei exfoliaza tenul, lasand in urma pielea neteda. In acelasi timp, stimuleaza si circulatia sangelui la nivelul fetei, vindecand imperfectiunile si revitalizand tot tesutul.

Facial Treatment on DYROGUE

Then I do the same to the rest of my body .. arms, thighs, hips, everything. The massage fights cellulite, ingrown hairs and will make you smoother than ever. If you haven't tried it before, I'm sure you'll thank me afterwards!


Let your cookie jar or whatever vessel you put the coffee grounds intonext to the sink, right at hand everyday and have a facial scrub at least once a week. I understand that you don't always have time to bathe for a full hour.

Do not overdo it! More than 2 times is too much! I say this because your skin will get used to this treatment and when you will not have enough time to go through it, it will be a lot more needy.


The best part?

It's not like a regular face mask or scrub! - This one is simply delicious! The taste of coffee combined with honey will make you want to repeat the experience every day!


Add cinnamon! EVERYWHERE. - No kidding!

Over your morning coffee (lowers cholesterol, reduces appetite, enhances combustion, reduces blood glucose levels, etc.) and in the mix for your facial! (It has an antibacterial effect and is very, very beneficial for acne!)

.. That's it?

Not really ..

If we want our skin to glow, we must ensure that we eat healthy, drink enough water and do exercise. If one of these elements are missing, then no wonder our skin will reflect our shortcomings.

Also, in the case of skin rash or pimples, you should know they're mostly due to the internal problems, caused by things like hormones to depression. You need to identify the causes before you start treatment, but this is something you should discuss with a qualified dermatologist!

Smoking isn't doing you any good either, by the way. So if you postpone the decision to quit this habit, it might be time to ask yourself once again; is really worth it?

We must learn to love ourselves and behave in such a manner. So take time for your body. Go for a massage as often as you can, caress it with divine fragrances, keep it safe from sun rays and admire it in the mirror.

And when you have an imperfection, don't act like you're enemies - it's all yours, remember?

Done now? - Yes sir!

Continui apoi cu restul corpului.. brate, coapse, fese, tot. Masajul lupta impotriva celulitei, firelor crescute sub piele si te va face mai catifelata decat ai fost vreodata. Daca n-ai incercat pana acum, imi vei multumi sigur dupa aceea!


Lasa-ti vasul, sau bomboniera, cu cafea langa chiuveta si fa-ti un gomaj fetei, macar o data pe saptamana. Inteleg ca nu totdeauna ai timp sa te imbaiezi cate-o ora intreaga.

Nu exagera! Mai mult decat de 2 ori e deja prea mult! Spun asta pentru ca tenul tau se va obisnui cu acest tratament, iar in momentul in care tu nu vei mai avea suficient timp sa-l parcurgi, acesta se va sensibiliza.


Partea cea mai buna?

Nu e ca o masca obisnuita! - Daca-ti ajunge pe buze nu va trebui sa scuip ca un barbat de la tara! Haha, chiar deloc. Gustul combinat de cafea cu miere te va face sa vrei sa repeti experienta zilnic!


Adauga scortisoara! PESTE TOT. - nu glumesc!

Peste spuma cafelei de dimineata ( scade colesterolul, reduce apetitul, sporeste arderile, reduce nivelul glucozei in sange, etc ) si in mixul pentru fata! ( Are efect antibacterian si e foarte, foarte benefic pentru acnee! )

.. Atat?

Nu chiar..

Pentru ca tenul nostru sa radieze, trebuie sa ne asiguram ca mancam sanatos, bem suficienta apa si facem miscare. Daca unul dintre aceste elemente lipsesc, atunci nu e de mirare ca pielea noastra va oglindi lipsurile.

De asemenea, in cazul eruptilor la nivelul pielii, de cele mai multe ori sunt cauzate din motive interioare, de la dereglari hormonale pana la depresii. Trebuie sa identificam cauzele inainte sa incepem tratamentele, dar asta discuti cel mai bine cu un dermatolog calificat!

Nu te prea ajuta nici fumatul, apropo. Deci daca amanai decizia sa te lasi de acest obicei, poate ar fi momentul sa-ti mai pui o data intrebarea, chiar merita?

Trebuie sa invatam sa ne iubim si sa ne si comportam in asa maniera. Asa ca fa-ti timp pentru corpul tau. Nu te sfii sa-ti masezi tenul cat de des ai ocazia, sa-l mangai cu creme parfumate, sa-l feresti de razele ultraviolete si sa-l admiri in oglinda.

Iar cand ai o imperfectiune, nu-l mai dusmani - tot al tau e, ai uitat?

Gata? - Daa.
