No, još je bitnije izabrati vino koje će se savršeno spojiti s okusom ovih predivnih dragulja ranog proljeća.

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.

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.
