You asked me questions and here are my answers! Hear me talk about how I do all-in-one facings on sleeveless dresses, my best tricks for sewing a flat hem that doesn’t warp or twist, my skincare routine and favorite method when doing a full bottom adjustment. And plenty more!
Stuff mentioned in the video
My current skincare routine
My aim is to make my skin tone even, prevent the wrinkles (somewhat) and keep the acne at bay. I got oily skin that is sensitive to fragrance but can stand strong stuff like AHA, BHA and retinol. I want to buy more ethical, sustainable skincare products, but it’s hard to find non-oily, fragrance free, highly effective products that fits that criteria (but several products on my list do). The list below contains Amazon affiliate links.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
CAMDEN COSMETICS Vitamin C Serum for Face + Hyaluronic Acid
Face D 3-Luronics Anti Dark Circles Eye Cream
Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel
ACO Mattifyng Sun Face Fluid SPF 50 (Swedish Pharmacy brand)
Glycolic acid serum (I make my own)
Radha Beauty Retinol Moisturizer Cream for Face and Eye Area (a bit too greasy, so I only use it on the cheeks and under eye area)
To be honest I feel a bit torn about my skincare interest. These companies make a lot of money off our insecurities and we live in a society that constantly tells what is acceptable and not, especially for women. But it is so hard to resist all these pressures. For instance I’ve suffered from an large amount of bacne ever since I was teen and that often kept from wearing clothes that were open in the back. Since 2011 I’ve kept it under control with a homemade lotion mixing BHA and AHA acids. But the bacne definitely limited me for many years, mostly due to society pressures, and that sucks. You can read a bit more about my bacne struggles and how it affected my clothes choices here and here. And here is a before pic if you are curious.
Also if you have more questions you want to ask me, just do so and I’ll do another Q&A video in the future!
