Dry skin savers


You will agree with me that the care and protection of the skin is very important, especially in some specific periods during the year- for example in the summer and winter when the skin needs a special care. Not so much divides us from the winter; cold winds and rains have already started, and if you consider as well the beginning of the heating season, well my dears- all that means a little (and in some cases- drastic) change in our skincare. I already mentioned before that my skin is normal, but with a slight tendency towards a sensitive type (it especially reacts with the changes in temperature). What my skin particularly likes are thick, oily and nutritive creams that prevent a specific "tight" feeling. I haven't still found my perfect face cream, but there are some universal products (both for body and face) that I like to use lately, and these are Coconut jelly- 100% pure Vaseline and Balea cream with calendula (marigold).

Slozicete se sa mnom da je nega i zastita koze veoma vazna, narocito u nekim specificnim periodima tokom godine- npr. tokom leta i zime kada je kozi potrebna posebna briga. Ne deli nas toliko puno od zime, hladni vetrovi i kise su uveliko poceli, pa ako jos tome dodate pocetak sezone grejanja- dragi moji sve to znaci malu (a kod nekog i drasticnu) promenu u nezi koze. Vec sam napominjala da je moja koza normalna ali sa blagom tendencijom ka osetljivom tipu, narocito pri promenama temperature. Ono sto joj posebno prija su guste, masnije i hranljivije kreme koje sprecavaju osecaj zategnutosti. Jos uvek nisam pronasla svoju savrsenu kremu za lice, ali postoje neki univerzalni proizvodi (za telo i lice) koje volim da koristim u poslednje vreme i koji mi pomazu, a to su Cist vazelin sa kokosom i Balea mast sa nevenom.



*Balea cream with calendula (marigold)*
*Balea mast sa nevenom*

This thick orange cream in the packaging of 250gr will last for an eternity. Excellent for dry or damaged skin as it contains pro-vitamin B5, and it's just perfect for the burns we get from the excessive exposure to the summer sun. I like to use it in various situations, as well as Vaseline, which I will write about later in the text.
I remember that my grandma always used some cream based on calendula/marigold, so its healing effects are so familiar to me. Besides pro-vitamin B5 this plant contains as well: vitamin A, essential oils, potassium, tannins, lycopene (excellent in the fight against cancer and heart attack), proteins... I read once that the homemade creams are made ​​from chopped fresh calendula or its tea and pork fat, so there you have an idea if you are fans of the "beauty DIY recipes"!:)

Ova mast narandzaste boje u pakovanju od 250gr vam traje citavu vecnost. Odlicna je za suvu ili ostecenu kozu jer sadrzi provitamin B5, i prosto savrsena kod opekotina koje nastaju pri preteranom letnjem izlaganju suncu. Ja volim da je koristim u raznim prilikama, kao i vazelin, sto cu navesti kasnije tokom teksta.
Secam se da je moja baka uvek koristila neku kremu na bazi nevena, te su mi lekovita svojstva kalendule vec odavno poznata. Pored provitamina B5 ova biljka sadrzi i vitamin A, etericna ulja, kalijum, tanine, likopen (odlican u borbi protiv raka i infarkta), proteine... Procitala sam jednom da se prava domaca krema pravi od seckanog svezeg nevena ili njegovog caja i svinjske masti, pa eto ideje ako ste ljubitelji "domace radinosti"!:)


*Coconut jelly- 100% pure Vaseline*
*100% cist Vazelin sa kokosom*

I simply adore this Vaseline, and it could be 'cause of my favorite scent of coconut! I buy it in Greece and I have it always with me during the whole year! Of course, just like with the calendula cream, I don't use this product every day, but from time to time so my skin doesn't get overly used on it. So these are the situations  when I use both products:
* After the shower (at night before bed) while the skin is still warm I massage over the entire surface a thin layer and leave it overnight. In the morning, the skin is smooth and soft.
* When my feet need special care I apply a thicker layer, put on some old cotton socks and sleep over. The skin is soft as a baby's. The same situation is with the hands, only in this case (logically) I use the gloves.
* I especially like to apply a thicker layer of cream on the face before I go to bed. And then I always love my skin in the morning...
* It can be used as well for: chapped lips, rough elbows and heels, softening cuticles and the area around the nails, literally for everything you can think of!
p.s. You have noticed that I like to use these creams at night because I believe that the skin regenerates the best during the night. And here's another little advice for all girls/women- be sure you sleep alone when you want to use these or similar oily/thick products- it's not sexy at all if you're sticky like a jelly candy. You know what I mean ;)

Ja naprosto obozavam ovaj vazelin, i to vrlo lako moze biti zbog omiljenog mi mirisa kokosa! Kupujem ga u Grckoj i ne odvajam se od njega ni leti ni zimi! Naravno kao ni mast sa nevenom, ni ovaj proizvod ne koristim svaki dan, vec s vremena na vreme da ne bih preterano navikavala kozu. A evo kada koristim oba proizvoda:
* Nakon tusiranja (uvece pred spavanje) dok je jos topla koza umasiram lepo po citavoj povrsini tanak sloj te ostavim preko noci. Ujutru je koza glatka i meka. 
* Kada je mojim stopalima potrebna posebna nega nanesem deblji sloj, obujem starije pamucne carapice i prespavam. Koza je nakon toga kao bebina. Ista situacija je i sa rukama/sakama samo sto u tom slucaju logicno koristim rukavice.
* Posebno volim da nanesem deblji sloj po licu umesto kreme uvece. I onda uvek volim svoju kozu ujutru...
* Mozete koristiti i za: ispucala usta, ogrubele laktove i pete, omeksavanje zanoktica i podrucja oko noktiju, bukvalno za sve sto vam padne na pamet!
p.s. Primetili ste da volim da koristim ove kremice uvece, jer smatram da se koza najbolje hrani i regenerise tokom noci. Samo evo jos jednog malog saveta za sve devojke/zene- gledajte da spavate same kada zelite da koristite ove ili slicne masnije proizvode- nije uopste seksi ako ste lepljivi kao zele bombone. Znate na sta mislim!;)
