Tajna lijepog lica leži u Sache cosmetics

Ljudi me često, najčešće nakon priloga na televiziji pitaju čime njegujem kožu lica i koja je tajna mog izgleda. Jedna od tajni se skriva u Sache cosmetics proizvodima, a naročito u Sache prirodnoj kremi za normalnu kožu kojom svakodnevno njegujem lice. Možete je koristiti ujutro i/ili uvečer.

U pakiranju dolazi i žličica za higijensko korištenje kreme koja je veliki plus i ukazuje na luksuz Sache cosmetics proizvoda. Kremu nanosite na čisto i navlaženo lice, u vrlo maloj količini.

Šparoge i vino / Asparagus and wine

Volite li jesti (divlje) šparoge ili po istrijanski šparuge, tada zasigurno znate koliko paše čaša vina uz njih. No, još je bitnije izabrati vino koje će se savršeno spojiti s okusom ovih predivnih dragulja ranog proljeća. Pročitajte u mom novom blogu na Colours of Istria što vam savjetujem na temu sparivanja šparoga i vina. Želim vam prekrasan vikend pun proljetnih mirisa i okusa.


 

If you like to eat (wild) asparagus, then you certainly know how well a glass of wine goes with them. But, it is even more important to choose a proper wine that will perfectly match the taste of these wonderful early spring jewels. Read my new blog on Colors of Istria on the subject of pairing up asparagus and wine. Have a great weekend filled with springtime fragrances and flavors.

Mediteransko anticelulitno ulje / Mediterranean anti-cellulite oil

Ponekad su najjednostavniji pripravci najbolji za njegu i održavanje ljepote i zdravlja naše kože. Za današnje anticelulitno ulje vam trebaju tek dva sastojka, maslinovo ulje i ružmarin.

100 ml maslinovog ulja

2 žličice ružmarina u prahu

Maslinovo ulje i prah ružmarina pomiješajte u boci ili manjoj staklenci s poklopcem i ostavite dva tjedna na tamnom i hladnijem mjestu. Svaki dan promiješajte ili promućkajte ulje. Nakon dva tjedna ulje procijedite kroz gazu u čistu bocu ili staklenku i počnite koristiti.

Ulje nanosite na čistu kožu tri puta tjedno u periodu od bar dva mjeseca ili skroz do ljetovanja i celulit bi se trebao smanjiti. Nanosite kružnim pokretima na trbuh, stražnjicu i bokove, u početku nježno, a potom srednje čvrsto na mjestima s više celulita. Ostavite da djeluje 15-30 minuta i potom isperite. Nanosite li ga uvečer prije spavanja, tada ga utrljajte u kožu, obucite pidžamu i ostavite preko noći. Ne morate stavljati puno ulja na kožu, bitno je dobro ga umasirati i bolje je dozvoliti koži da upije koliko joj treba.

Što se viskoziteta maslinovog ulja tiče… Da, ima ulja koja će više dozvoliti ružmarinu upijanje, no meni je imperativ pokazati vam kako i sa sastojcima koje svi imamo kod kuće možemo svome tijelu podariti ljepotu, a i zdravlje. S druge strane, maslinovo ulje je odlično za kožu i sasvim će dovoljno dozvoliti ružmarinu njegovo djelovanje.

Želite li povećati upijanje, zamijenite maslinovo ulje kokosovim uljem ili recimo lješnjakovim uljem jer oba imaju odlično djelovanje na kožu.

Moram spomenuti da ovo anticelulitno ulje djeluje, kao i brojna druga anticelulitna ulja ili neke kreme i losioni, no ništa od toga svega neće pružiti optimalan učinak bez kretanja/rekreacije, pijenja vode i zdrave hrane. Uostalom, proljeće je, izađimo van!

bowl being poured with yellow liquid

Sometimes the simplest preparations are actually the best for maintaining the beauty and health of our skin. For today’s anti-cellulite oil, you only need two ingredients, olive oil and rosemary.

100 ml of olive oil

2 teaspoons of powdered rosemary

Mix olive oil and powdered rosemary in a bottle or a small jar with lid and leave for two weeks in a darker and cooler place. Mix or shake this oil every day. After two weeks, pour oil through the gauze into a clean bottle or jar and start using it right away.

Apply oil to clean skin three times a week for a period of at least two months or until the summer and cellulite should be greatly reduced. Apply circular movements to the belly, buttocks and hips – initially with a softer grip and then gradually increase it to more intense movements, especially on parts with more cellulite. Let it work for 15-30 minutes and then rinse.

You can also use the anti-cellulite oil in the evening before bedtime, then rub it in the skin, put on the pajamas and leave it overnight. You do not have to put a lot of oil on the skin, as the skin will absorb how much it needs.

What about the viscosity of olive oil? Yes, there are oils that will allow better absorption of rosemary, but it is my imperative to show you how to use these two ingredients we all have in our homes and how awesome they can be for our health and beauty. On the other hand, olive oil is great for the skin and will allow the rosemary to penetrate the skin well enough.

However, if you want to increase the absorption, replace olive oil with coconut oil or hazelnut oil, as both have excellent benefits for the skin.

I must mention that this anti-cellulite oil, as well many other similar oils, creams or lotions can provide great results, but you won’t reach optimal results without recreation, plenty of water and healthy dieting. After all, it’s spring, so let’s go outside!

Superhranom protiv stresa / Superfoods against stress

Dodaci prehrani mogu biti odlična nadopuna našem tijelu, odnosno imunitetu, posebice tijekom prijelaza sezona, ali i kada smo, kako i navodim u naslovu, pod stresom zbog posla, škole, ljubavi ili bolesti.

Čak i ako se, poput mene, većinu vremena hranite prilično zdravo, ponekad je dobro tijelu, na mjesec do dva, pružiti dodatnu pomoć kroz najbolje dodatke prehrani koje možete naći na tržištu. Tim više jer je stres, kako su brojne studije pokazale, glavni uzročnik brojnih bolesti.IMG_1552

Danas vam donosim Bee 4 Stress. Dodatak prehrani s medom, peludi, matičnom mliječi, ayurvedskim biljkama i vitaminima. Ovaj dodatak prehrani uzimam svaki dan nakon obroka i to po žličicu do dvije, zavisno do dnevnih napora. Divota leži u tome da se radi o sasvim prirodnom proizvodu, kvalitetnih sastojaka pa ga se može uzimati po potrebi bez vremenskih ograničenja, odnosno kada god osjetite potrebu ili kao prevenciju.

Bacite oko na fotke u tekstu te se potom zaletite na web shop Radovana Petrovića, naše poznate obiteljske manufakture koja proizvodi med, dodatke prehrani i kozmetiku na bazi pčelinjih produkata. Nabavite svoj Bee 4 Stress čim prije.

Apsolutno svi proizvodi Radovana Petrovića su 100 % prirodni i bez dodanih konzervansa, emulgatora i aditiva pa ih zato i sam koristim, a evo u međuvremenu smo i razvili prekrasnu suradnju.

Svi koji me i osobno poznajete znate da mi ne bi u životu palo na pamet reklamirati nešto ili nekoga čisto zbog osobne koristi.

Lijep vam i ugodan dan, kao i početak novog tjedna!


Nutritional supplements can be a great addon to our body and immune system, especially during the seasonal transitions, but also when we, as I said in the title, are under stress because of work, school, love or illness.

Even if you, like me, eat most of the time fairly healthy, it’s sometimes good to give your body, for a  month or two, some extra help with the best dietary supplements you can find on the market. More so because stress, as many studies have shown, is the major cause of numerous diseases.IMG_1551

Today, I’m bringing you Bee 4 Stress. A nutritional supplement with honey, pollen, royal jelly, ayurvedic herbs and vitamins. This dietary supplement is taken every day after a meal, in a dose of a teaspoon or two, depending on your daily need. The beauty of this supplement lies in the fact that it is a completely natural product, with quality ingredients, so it can be taken as needed without time constraints, basically whenever you feel the need or prevention.

Take a look at the photos in this text and then go to the web shop of Radovan Petrović, Croatia’s famous family manufacturer of honey, dietary supplements and cosmetics based on bee products. Get your Bee 4 Stress as soon as possible.

Absolutely all products by Radovan Petrovic are 100% natural and without added preservatives, emulsifiers or additives. That’s why I’m using them myself, and in the meantime have developed a wonderful collaboration with the company.

All of you who know me personally know that I would never advertise something or someone purely for personal gain.

I wish you a nice and enjoyable day, as well as the beginning of the new week!DSC_0142

Vitaminska maska za lice / Vitamin face mask

Proljeće nam je stiglo i sa sobom, kao i svake godine, donijelo toliko željeno sunce, ali i prekrasno procvjetalo bilje, kojeg je svakim danom sve više. To znači i više druženja i boravka na otvorenom pa je zato dobro krenuti s vitaminskom maskom za lice koja će u hipu ukloniti zimsko sivilo s lica.

Vitamini C i E su klasici u njezi kože, kako iznutra pa tako i izvana. Imaju jako antioksidativno djelovanje i pomažu u usporavanju znakova starenja kože, ali i poticanju stvaranja hijaluronske kiseline te kolagena.

Vitamin C potiče sintezu (stvaranje) hijaluronske kiseline u našem tijelu, a ona utječe na proizvodnju kolagena u tijelu. S druge strane, vitamin E njeguje i vlaži te poput vitamina C uništava slobodne radikale kako u tijelu, tako i na koži.

Imajte na umu, ova maska za lice nije za ljude s osjetljivom kožom. Osjetite li lagane trnce po licu, to je za očekivati jer vitamina C oksidira na zraku. Isperite lice vodom počne li vas maska peći.

1 žlica vitamina C u prahu

5-6 kapi ulja vitamina E – može i maslinovo ili čak suncokretovo ulje

Malo vode, negazirane mineralne ili termalne

Pomiješajte sve sastojke u posudi i ciljajte na teksturu kremaste paste. Dok je radite, maska bi se mogla pjeniti. Prstima je nanesite na prethodno očišćeno lice, izbjegavajući područje oko očiju, i ostavite pet do deset minuta da djeluje. Isperite mlakom vodom i potom lice nahranite uobičajenom hidratantnom njegom ili jednostavno pošpricajte termalnom vodom ili tonerom bez alkohola. Masku nanosite uvečer, jednom do dvaput tjedno.

Spring has arrived, and like every year, it brought so much needed sunshine and beautifully blossomed flora, whose flowers are increasing each and every day. This means more socializing and staying in the open so it’s a good idea to start with a vitamin face mask that will remove dull winter complexions from our faces.

Vitamins C and E are classic allies in skin care, both inside and out. They have a strong antioxidant effect and help slow down signs of skin aging and also stimulate the formation of hyaluronic acid and collagen.

Vitamin C stimulates the synthesis (formation) of hyaluronic acid in our body, and it aides with the production of collagen in the body as well. On the other hand, vitamin E nourishes and moisturizes, and like vitamin C, it destroys free radicals in the body as well as on the skin.

Bear in mind, this face mask is not for people with sensitive skin. If you feel slight tingling on your face, that’s okay because vitamin C oxidises in the air. Rinse your face with water if you’re experiencing a burning sensation.

1 tablespoon of vitamin C powder

5-6 drops of vitamin E oil – can also be olive oil or even sunflower oil

A little water, still mineral or thermal water

Mix all the ingredients in the bowl, until you get a cream paste texture. As you’re mixing the ingredients,, the mask could foam up. Put it with your fingers on a previously cleansed face, avoiding the eye area and leave it for five to ten minutes to do its magic. Rinse with lukewarm water and then nourish your face with the usual moisturizing care or simply spray with thermal water or alcohol-free toner. Apply the mask in the evening, once or twice a week.

Kako izgledati dobro za putovanja? / How to look good during travel?

Scroll down for English.

Volite putovati? Ja obožavam. Ponekad mi se čini da je samo putovanje zanimljivije i bitnije iskustvo od same destinacije. No, ponekad. 😉

Koje su vaše tajne za dobar izgled tijekom i nakon putovanja?

Osobno, pred sam put mi, još od djetinjstva, raste uzbuđenje i zbog toga ću težezaspati pa mi je zato bitno ne izgledati poput zombija tijekom puta ili još gore, po dolasku na cilj.

Iako je dobar san po dolasku na željenu destinaciju sve, postoji još nekoliko trikova kojih se držim…

Voda je možda i najvažniji element. Putujete li zrakoplovom, vodom se možete opskrbiti nakon prolaska aerodromskog osiguranja, a tijekom leta kabinsko osoblje redovito hoda pitajući tko želi vode. Čak ako to i ne rade, uvijek možete otići do njih i zamoliti čašu vode. I nemojte sada gunđati o tome kako ćete zbog pijenja vode ići češće na WC. Koža i tijelo će vam biti zdraviji, a imat ćete i manje retencije vode. Putujete li drugim prometalima, još ćete lakše imati pristup vodi.

Sljedeći na popisu je gel ili sprej na bazi alkohola za dezinfekciju ruku i površina. Kabine zrakoplova, vlakova, autobusa ili brodova se doslovce NIKADA ne peru pa zato nije loše dezinficirati bar vlastite ruke prije jela, kao i stolić na kojem ćete dobiti serviranu hranu. Birajte gelove, sprejeve ili dezinficirajuće maramice s alkoholom i što manje drugih sastojaka. Alkohol je jedan od vrlo rijetkih dezinficijensa koji neće uzrokovati razvoj štetnih bakterija.

Slijedi prirodna putna krema za ruke – jednostavno, nakon svog tog dezinficiranja, ruke će se sasušiti, a to ne želite.

Balzam za usne. Suh zrak tijekom putovanja je tragična zbilja za meke usne, zato ga često koristite.

Kapi za oči. Isto kao i za usne, suh zrak, ali i umor od puta može ostaviti oči umornima uz crvenilo.

Prije svakog putovanja nabavim testere omiljenih prirodnih brendova i ovisi koliko dugo putovanje traje, tijekom puta ću svakako jednom namazati lice kremom i osvježiti ga. No, prije toga savjetujem nježno ga prebrisati prirodnim vlažnim maramicama za osvježenje. Čak i ako vam se ovo ne da, putna termalna voda ili tonik za lice će pružiti predah licu.

Još možete ponijeti pastile za grlo jer se dobar glas daleko čuje, kao i vlažne maramice za toalet.

To je to. Sve ove kozmetičke stvarčice spakirajte u prozirnu vrećicu na zatvaranje i nećete imati problema s osiguranjem na aerodromima jer ništa od toga nije veće od 100 ml.

Sretan vam put!

Do you like to travel? I love it. Sometimes it seems to me that the journey is more interesting and more important than the destination itself. Well, sometimes. 😉

What are your secrets for looking and feeling good during and after your trip?

Personally, ever since childhood, I get excited before my trip, and because of that, it would be harder for me to fall asleep, so it is important not to look like a zombie during the journey or worse, after arriving at the destination.

Although, a good night’s sleep is crucial after you arrive at the destination, there are a few more tricks I follow…

PGdr6pi6Ss+dQvw14hY1yA_thumb_2c36

Water is, probably, the most important trick. If you travel by plane, you can buy/get water after passing through the airport security. During the flight, the cabin staff regularly walks up and down the aisles offering water. Even if they don’t, you can always go to the galley and ask for a glass of water, cabin crew will gladly help you. Don’t complain about going to the toilet more often for drinking more water. Your skin and body will be healthier and you will have less water retention. If you travel with other traffic, you will have even easier access to water.

Next on my trick list is a sanitizing gel or spray based on alcohol to disinfect hands and surfaces. Surfaces on the airplanes, trains, buses or ships are almost NEVER or rarely washed or disinfected, so it is not bad to disinfect at least your own hands before meals, as well as a table where you will be served food. Choose gels, sprays or disinfectants with alcohol and as little other ingredients as possible. Alcohol is one of very rare disinfectants that will not cause the development of harmful bacteria.

Natural hand cream. Your hands will be dry from all the sanitizing, but also from dry air and you don’t want dry and cracked hands.

Lip balm. It’s essential for pretty lips during and after travel.

Eye drops. Same as for lips, dry air and tiredness on the road can leave you with tired and red  eyes.

Before every trip I get the cosmetic testers of my favorite natural cosmetic brands. Depending on how long the journey lasts, I will occasionally refresh my face with a moisturizer. But before that I suggest gently cleaning your face with natural facial wipes. Even if you don’t feel like going the extra step, mist your face with travel thermal water or with a facial toner.

You can also add, but it’s optional, throat lozenges and flushable toilet wipes.

That’s it. Pack all of these travel cosmetic aids into a transparent and resealable plastic bag and you won’t have any problems with the airport security, as long as each product is within 100 ml.

Have a great and safe trip!
