Cultures around the world have their own skin care secrets that passed through generations. Local people swear by. Balkans is a synonym of porcelain face and flawless skin.
What’s up to travel to Serbia today and get inspired by their skin care ritual?
Once again, I have to say many thanks to one of my best friends Sonia Andreou Weber (Graphic Designer) for telling me those secrets and be my today’s source of inspiration. You can follow her on facebook here. Her perfect skin represents so well to what I told you before.
Note that all the products that I recommend to you I have tried them and I will never suggest you something that is not working for me (at least). However, in Reviews, you can find products that I will not recommend but they might be working for you. What works a person might not working on another or it might be working better! xoxo
A light purple treasure that Serbian women love to use, for centuries, for its amazing benefits. Either they want to have a restful sleep or a nice relaxation lavender essential oil is their best option. Have in mind that Serbian not only love it for the above benefits but also because it has the ability to improve mood, pain control, heal wounds; and skin irritation.
Fortunately, I have lavender in my garden and it smells amazing. Every night that a nice soft wind is coming I feel immediately a relaxation feeling. Note that is a natural mosquito repellent. In my experience, if you suffer from insomnia or you want to have a restful sleep or even to fall asleep faster, apply 2-4 drops of lavender essential oil on your pillow.
