Beauty: Why using facial oils can benefit your skin?

Facial oils have got so many benefits however still many people that have not tried any. To be honest I have been using them for few years but in the past I believed that oils would give me more acne and breakouts. Well, after trying out different brands I realised it is about what oil you use. There are days where I do not even touch cream and use purely oils for hydrating my skin.

And why are they so good? Well, they prevent wrinkles mainly, they hydrate, they protect and some of them can even make your pores smaller. I personally find them somehow soothing. When I was pregnant I was obsessed with oils and also I used oils during my Accutante treatment as the skin was really dry.

These would be some of my favourite facial oils and there are different reasons why I love them.

  1. Samaya Ajurveda – this oil has got definitely one of the more interesting concepts as before you purchase you need to do a test and find out what your dosha is. If you are into yoga and ajurveda this is one thing to try. I was half kapha and vata and picked this one which is more suitable vata purely based on smell preference. It is a gorgeous oil with gorgeous smell and became a big fan very quickly.
  2. Clarins Blue Orchid – Face Treatment Oil – I have been using this only shortly but even after few uses I felt a big difference in the morning. Mainly how even the skin tone was and bare in mind I would use it after a night when I had few glasses of wine. It smells very natural and very herbal base so if you like that kind of thing this is the winner.
  3. Rodial Snake Booster Oil – This is my old hero product and I still love it. This must be my third bottle and I still use this product. It helps to almost freeze expressions lines and reduce signs of ageing. It is very good before you want to apply your foundation as I do believe there is almost instant effect when it comes to fine lines. Not huge fan of the smell but everything else is top class.
  4. Pixi Rose Oil Blend – this oil improves skins elasticity and brings lot of glow. And it does deliver. I had this with me travelling and it worked wonders after full day on the sun. It does not feel greasy whilst it hydrates nicely and I love the smell so much.
  5. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate – I started to use this product many years ago when I was going through  Accutane treatment and it is a wonderful lightweight oil. It is great for daily use, hydrates beautifully and also creates great block from all the radicals around us on a daily basis.

Let me know if any of these are familiar or perhaps there are other wonderful oils I should know about.

Olejicky na oblicej maji spoustu vyhod a presto potkavam spousty lidi, kteri by si zadny na oblicej nedali. Ja se priznam, ze pred par lety jsem mezi ne patrila. Myslela jsem si naivne, ze pouzivat oleje bude znamenat akne a mastna plet. Ale spis je to to tom najit takovy, ktery sedi vasi pleti. Dneska jsou dny, kdy si ani krem nedavam a spoleham se pouze na ruzne oleje. 

A proc jsou tak dobre. Samozrejme si musite najit ten svuj, ale vseobecne krasne hydratuji, chrani vasi plet, bojuji proti vraskam a nektere dokonce dokazi zmensit vase pory. Ja osobne je shledavam hrozne uklidnujici. Kdyz jsem byla tehotna, oleje jsem si vylozene uzivala a take jsem je ve velkem pouzivala behem Accutane lecby. Pokozka byla v te dobe opravdu extremne sucha.

Mam vyzkousene spousty ruznych oleju, ale tyhle mam momentalne hodne rada z ruznych duvodu. 

  1. Samaya Ajurveda – tento olej si vyberete na zaklade urceni vasi dosi. Pokud jste na jogu a ajurvedu a tyhle veci, urcite se na produkt podivejte. V mem testu vyslo, ze jsem napul kapha a vata. A rozhodla jsem se pro vatu jenom diky tomu, ze tento mi vonel vice. A velmi rychle jsem si ho zamilovala. 
  2. Clarins Blue Orchid – Face Treatment Oil – Tento olej mam ze vsech nejkratsi dobu, ale jsem spokojena. I pri prvnim pouziti jsem videla vysledky a to hlavne v tom, ze pokozka byla mene zarudla a to i po veceru, kdy jsem mela par sklenicek vina. A pokud mate radi vylozene bylinkove vune, bude se vam libit. 
  3. Rodial Snake Booster Oil – Tento olej pouzivam asi nejdele a je to jeden z mych nejvetsich oblibencu. Je navrzeny tak, ze ma zmirnit vrasky a zpomalit proces starnuti. Ja ho rada pouzivam, kdyz si chci udelat hodne dobry makeup. Mam pocit ze ma temer okamzity efekt a po na naneseni makeupu jsou vrasky mene vyrazne. Takovy docasny botox v lahvicce. Uprimne mi moc nesedi jeho vune, ale fakt, ze uz mam asi treti baleni asi svedci o tom, ze je dobry. 
  4. Pixi Rose Oil Blend – Pomuze vam vylepsit elasticitu pokozky a krasne ji rozzari a je to pravda. Mela jsem ho sebou na cestach a je uzasny po celem dni na slunicku. A navic krasne voni. 
  5. Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate – Tento lehky olej jsem zacala pouzivat prave v dobe, kdyz jsem prochazela lecbou accutanem. A zamilovala jsem si jej. Je prirodni, ma vytazek z korene zazvoru a nadherne hydratuje. Vasi plet chrani a vytvari skvely blok pred skodlivinami, ktere mame kolem sebe. 

Dejte mi vedet jake vy pouzivat oleje a proc a treba zrovna nektery z techto je take vas oblibenec.

Dolce & Gabbana Meets Meadow

I may not be at Amalfi Coast or beautiful Sicilian Square but I decided to bring a bit of Dolce & Gabbana wherever I go. This time to the beautiful Czech Republic. When people love a touch luxury and beautiful things it does not matter where you are you can always have that slice of cake.

Whether that is a beautiful scent or gorgeous lipstick these things should always bring the best out of you. There is just simply something about putting on a nice lipstick or blush. Even if you do not feel like it just go and do it. Perhaps you had a bad week and makeup is the last thing you are thinking about however it makes people feel better. The inside and outside are so connected so you should look after both.

I wanted to bring together the juxtaposition of Czech countryside and this beautiful makeup. I am not shooting at gorgeous Sicilian village under the sun or wearing Dolce & Gabbana flower crown but I love it anyway. I collected wild flowers around the fields and forest and created my own crown. I was shooting in my father’s vineyard and tried on several gorgeous shades of Miss Sicily lipsticks that quickly became my favourites in the last few months. They create dewy and juicy lips and still giving your lips gorgeous shade. I really feel like the most feminine fairy under the sun.

Nejsem sice ani na pobrezi Amalfi nebo krasnem starem Sicilskem namesti, ale i tak jsem se rozhodla si sebou privezt trosku Dolce & Gabbany. A tentokrat do krasneho Ceska a to primo do vinice na Moravu. Kdyz maji lide radi trosku luxusu, nezalezi na tom, kde jste, muzete si ho vzit zkratka sebou.

At uz je to krasna rtenka ci vune, tyhle veci by ve vas mely probouzet to nejlepsi. Ja mam pocit, ze na tom neco je, kdyz si natrete rty krasnou rtenkou ci nalicite lice tvarenkou. A i kdyz mate za sebou tezky tyden, zkuste si alespon dat hezkou rtenku, protoze vnitrni a vnejsi krasa jsou tak propojene. Ovlivnuji jedna druhou. A je treba se starat o oboji.

Ja jsem chtela nejak spojit krasny Dolce & Gabbana makeup s Moravskou krajinou a i kdyz nejsem na sluncem rozpalenem Sicilskem venkove, tak se mi to hrozne libi. Juxtapozice kvetinove celenky, kterou jsem si vyrobila a krasneho makeupu mi prijde krasna. Navic jsem fotografie tvorila v rodinnem vinohradu.  Chtela jsem vyzkouset krasne odstiny rtenek Miss Sicily, ktere jsem si v poslednich mesicich oblibila. Krasne hydratuji a vypadaji prirozene. Hrozne me bavi ted v lete, protoze lesklejsi a stavnatejsi rty k horkemu letu proste patri.

Get Over Post Baby Issues with Swiss Clinic

When I got pregnant I had no idea what was ahead of me. Well, I had an idea but there are so many small things people are not talking about. It is amazing we are capable of creating a life like that and that our body is designed in that way but those little angels also take a lot out of you. And that is not only when they are inside of your body but also after they are born. I feel I am now slowly getting to my old self but it takes lot of hard work and dedication.

Let’s face it having a baby takes a lot out of you and because the way we look is a lot about what is happening to you inside you can imagine what impact it may have. My big issues were dull skin (lack of sleep really shows on your face), cellulite (I was terrified when I saw how worse it got) , pigmentation and falling hair. I am very lucky to have naturally healthy and very thick hair however breastfeeding took a lot out of me. I did lot of research about this. Obviously, you can take vitamins however I wanted to boost the growth and I still want it. My hair is my thing and I want it to be even longer and thicker but when I was washing brushing my hair I would end up with huge amount of hair in the brush and in my hands.

There are things like laser for your skin but being a new mum and so on it did not work for me. You spend lot of time away and money too.  When you have not baby sitting it can be tricky. I needed something I can do on my own at home. When I received Swiss clinic Skin renewal set I was over the moon. I heard about derma rolling but only the one done at salons which would not work for me that much purely because of the reasons I mentioned earlier. I will not lie I was petrified to try it first but the roller I was using has needles only 0,2 and it does not hurt.

I started this routine when Liam was about 9 months and loved it from day one. Every morning the skin looked fresher and glowing. I would usually do this every second day and then I would have a break for few days. There is a recommended way how to use this but I feel people can adapt this to their own needs. After I was using the roller together with the rejuvenating serum for about a month I took a longer break and I am now ready to start again. It is much easier than it may sound. You use the sterilised roller (the sterilising spray is also available from the brand) on clean face (when I am using this I go for the Micellar cleansing gel) and roll over your skin. I would go maximum three times on each part of the skin and then you apply this serum. The needles will gently break your skin and that means firstly your skin absorbs any products faster but also forces itself to renew much faster. And that is in simple words the whole secret. You can do this even for issues like cellulite.

I was also lucky enough to try also their hair renewal serum. And I can see the baby hair coming out and my hairdresser was convincing me that the hair also grew quite a lot. I keep forgetting to use it every day so trying to do it at least every second day and it just feels good to add a bit of head massage to your routine. It also prevents hair loss so I will be sticking to this product for sure. I do trust my hairdresser when they say the hair has been growing fast. It is sometimes hard to judge these things yourself.

I mentioned some of these products previously on my social channels and also here on the blog but I wanted to talk more about this routine as I feel anyone can benefit from this. Not only new mums but also people that feel they need to start with botox, laser treatments and similar. This is an easy and affordable way how to put these things off for a bit longer. I have seen improvements in my the size of my pores, wrinkles and the overall quality of the skin.

Kdyz jsem otehotnela nevedela jsem ani moc co me ceka. Urcita predstava tady byla, ale spoustu veci mi lide nezminily. Je uzasne, ze nase tela jsou stvorena k tomu tvorit dalsi zivot, ale jak asi vite, tak vam ti andilci hodne vezmou. At uz kdyz v nas rostou nebo i po porodu. Ja se konecne dostavam do stejne formy jako predtim, ale stoji to dost usili.

Jako vetsina zen jsem i ja mela problemy s unavene vypadajici pleti a trosku zasedlou barvou, zvysenou pigmentaci, celulitidou a vypadavanim vlasu. To jsou myslim caste problem zen po porodu. A at si kazdy rika, ze jsou to veci povrchni, kdyz existuji zpusoby jak se dat do kupy, proc ne. Liam ma ted 11 mesicu a teprve ted zacinam zpatky citit celkovou formu, plet se srovnava, celulitida je lepsi a vlasy dorustaji.

Kdyz bylo Liamkovi asi 9 mesicu, dostala jsem nekolik produktu od firmy Swiss Clinic. Nekolikrat jsem zminovala jejich produkty ve videu a na mych socialnich kanalech, protoze jsem byla zkratka spokojena,  rozhodla jsem se napsat uceleny clanek, protoze tento mesic budu zacinat znovu predchozi peci o plet. O derma rolling jsem cetla drive, ale mela jsem tento process spojeny jenom s chozenim do salonu a to v mem pripade nemuzu az tak casto uz jenom z toho duvodu, ze nemam hlidani. A proto mi system od Swiss Clinic opravdu vyhovuje. Zacinala jsem s touto sadou a delkou jehlicek 0,2. Priznavam se, ze jsem se hrozne bala pri poprvnim pouziti, ale vubec to neboli a neocekavejte ani zadne krvaceni. A uz po prvnim pouziti jsem si vsimla, ze plet vypada odpocate a zarive. Samozrejme je doporucene pouzivani, ale ja si vzdy rikam, at si kazdy upravi tyto veci podle sebe a co mu vyhovuje. Ja jsem pouzivala tuto sadu obden a pak si dala vzdy par dni pauzu. Po mesici jsem skoncila a az do ted jsem dala pleti oddych a zkousela.

Pouziti je jednoduche. Na ocistenou ( ja pouzivam pri tomto procesu tento gel) pokozku pouzijete valecek, ktery sterilisujete specialnim sprejem, jez je take k dostani od Swiss clinic a zkratka prejizdite jednotlive casti obliceje ci tela. Tento system se da pouzit i na celulitidu, ale tam myslim, ze jsou treba delsi jehlicky. Zjednodusene se da rict, ze jehlicky na valecku vam propichaji pokozku, ktera pak dokaze lepe absorbovat produkty, ktere pak pouzijete a take sama sebe nuti se rychleji obnovovat. Tim ze se vam rychleji a vic obnovuje vrchni vrstva kuze se zbavujete drobnych vrasek, pigmentovych skrvn, zmensujete pory, zbavujete se jizvicek atd. Myslim, ze to je vyborne a nejen pro maminky, ale i zeny ci muze, kteri premysli o zakrocich jako botox ci laser. Timto zpusobem si muzete tyhle silnejsi zakroky oddalit.

Dalsim strasakem zen po porodu a hlavne tech co koji je asi vypadavani vlasu. Po kazdem cesani jsem videla obrovske chuchvalce vlasu na kartaci a plus Liam je jeste ted expert v tahani za vlasy. Nastesti mam huste vlasy, ale i tak, protoze mam sve vlasy rada jsem chtela padani predejit a take si prala, at mi co nejdrive zacnou zase vyrustat a proto jsem se rozhodla vyzkouset tohle serum. A podle toho co mi tvrdily pri posledni navsteve kadernictvi funguje. Myslim, ze v nekterych pripadech nedokaze clovek sam hodnotit vysledky, ale kdyz vam kadernik rekne, ze vlasy vam opravdu rychle porostly a opet dorustaji, myslim, ze tomu muzu verit.

Ted se chystam znovu zacit asi mesicni rutinu, kdy zavedu derma rolling do sve peci o pokozku. Po mesici si dam zase pausu. Tento proces mi vyhovuje a vysledky se opravdu dostavily. A snad botox i ve svem veku budu moci jeste oddalit.

My new smile thanks to bonding

When I was 13 years old I walked into a casting of one of the biggest modelling agencies in Czech Republic Czechoslovak Models with dreams about a big modelling world and the owner Milada Karasova that discovered top models like Eva Herzigova told me you have all the right things young lady but you need to sort your teeth as you have gaps and it annoys photographers as there is always so much to photoshop after the shoot. I was happy but dreading braces at the same time. Imagine teenager looking at the her role model Cindy Crawford and the idea of wearing braces just wasn’t pleasing back then.

So I went to see the best orthodontist in the region and after few visits left with one of those old school braces you wear over the night. It was a relieve for me that I did not have to wear the permanent but little did I know. I got rid of the gaps but for how long? My teeth have always been straight but because of its smaller size (that is what I was told) there were small gaps and sometimes I felt optically they do not look straight as my attention used to go always to the gaps. And although it is a small thing it bothered me. It bothered me mainly when I was filming as my eyes would always go on the gaps in my teeth so now so many years later in my thirties I decided to do something about it and started to do research. And I made up my mind I wanted Invisaligns.

After doing more due diligence I realised it is not financially the cheapest thing but I wanted to have them so badly I got few quotes and tried to find a place that is going to do it cheap and well and ideally close to where I live. And I found an amazing dental practice Smile dental. I saw a work of Dr Dadashian and I liked what I saw so I booked myself for consultation and his words were like Eva you don’t need Invisaligns. I could not believe my ears as he was a first person that did not give me just another quote of 4000 £. Finally a first person that is not making my gaps bigger than they are and just trying to get lots of money out of my pocket.

He explained to me I always have the option to go for Invisaligns however that there is also a method called bonding where he simply uses technique how to model the teeth and bond them together. He showed me couple of examples and I decided to try to use it one one gap and see how I feel afterward. And guess what I loved it so I decided to have it done on all the gaps. Firstly it does not hurt, secondly it is much cheaper so you pay 120 £ per gap and it brings instant results. After creating a plan of action and three appointments later I have a new smile without gaps and pain free.

I could not be happier with the results. You know there is always advantages and disadvantages of the treatments but you have the option. If I feel I really want Invisaligns few years later I know I can still go for it but at the moment I am over the moon and so happy. I decided to share this with you as there may be so many of you having the same problem and looking for the right doctor to help you. I found mine and I can only speak highly of him. He really changed how I feel and that is what is very important.

Kdyz mi bylo 13 objevila jsem se ve zname agenture Czechoslovak models na castingu a snila o velkem svete modelingu. V hlave mela obraz tenkrat sveho idolu Cindy Crawford a s velkym odhodlanim se na casting tesila. Milada Karasova, ktera objevila napriklad top modelku Evu Herzigovou mi tenkrat rekla, ze vse dobry, ale ze mam mezery mezi zubama. No to bylo neco na trinactiletou holku, ktera mela uplne jine predstavy. Rekla mi, dej si rovnatka a prijd za dva roky.

A tak jsem se rozhodla, ze to udelam, ale predstava, ze mam permanentni rovnatka me desila. Nenecham se prece sikanovat ve skole a tak jsem se rozhodla pro takove ty klasicke stare rovnatka pres noc. Zadne terno to nebylo a mezery to do urcite miry srovnalo ale na jak dlouho? Po par letech se vse vratilo tak jak to bylo a nejak jsem si v posledni dobe rekla, ze s tim chci neco udelat. Neberte to spatne, mam zuby rovne, nebo mi to alespon rikaji zubari, jenom jsem mela par mezirek. A nejak mi to tak vrtalo hlavou a hlavne jsem mela pocit, ze to jde videt, kdyz tocim a tak jsem se rozhodla, ze zkusim Invisalign. 

A tak jsem zacala delat pruzkum, kde si je necham udelat, je to levnejsi v CR, jak bych to vubec udelala? Byla jsem v par klinikach a samozrejme jsem se snazila najit pokazde levnejsi, ale stejne dobrou variantu. Po nejake dobe jsem se rozhodla, ze chci kliniku, ktera bude i bliz k memu bytu, protoze kvuli Liamkovi a hlidani nechci nekde hodinu a pul cestovat na kazdou konzultaci. A nasla jsem skvelou kliniku Smile Dental Practice. Videla jsem praci doktora Dadashian a libilo se mi jak provadi kosmeticke upravy zubu a vubec vse.

Nemohla jsem uverit svym usim, kdyz mi po prvni konzultaci oznamil, ze zadne Invisalign nepotrebuju, ze mam proste rovne zuby a ze mu prijde zbytecni utracet pres tri tisice liber na takovem malem kosmetickem problemu a zminil se o metode bonding. Ukazal mi par prikladu a ja jsem zasla, protoze jsem o tom slysela poprve. Zubar vam zkratka vymodeluje zuby tak, ze je spoji a zbavi vas mezer. Jako vzdy ma vse sve vyhody a nevyhody, ale ja se rozhodla, ze to zkusim na jedne mezere. A po vyzkouseni jsem byla nadsena. Za prve to vubec neboli, za druhe je to mnohem levnejsi a za treti je vysledek videt ihned. Nevyhoda je, ze treba za sest let a vice si mozna budete muset zuby nechat zase upravit, ale zalezi na osobe jak se o zuby stara atd.

Ja jsem si rekla, ze to zkusim a ze kdybych se rozhodla za par let jinak, Invisaligns si muzu dat i pak. Zkratka me doktor presvedcil, ze tohle je pro me ted mnohem efektivnejsi reseni. A ja jsem nadsena. Stacily tri navstevy, zadna bolest a mezery jsou pryc.

Ted se budu smat snad jeste vice. Rozhodla jsem se napsat tento clanek, protoze mozna mate stejny problem a vubec o teto moznosti nevite. A taky se snad musim pochvalit se svym novym usmevem. LOL
