Let’s be honest: I wouldn’t consider myself the sportiest person in the world and I totally dislike going to the gym. On the other hand, I like to look and feel good with my body and skin. Therefore some action is needed.

I remember exactly one year ago, on the first of September 2016, I moved to Vienna’s 13th district of Vienna. I had some extra kilos that I had to get rid of. Residents of the 13th district, including myself, are lucky to have Schönbrunn gardens in the proximity.

I decided to take advantage of it and go running as much as possible, as often as possible. In order to stay motivated, I bought a new sporty outfit and I downloaded an app which tracks my daily steps and reminds me to be more active. The best hour for me to go running was during  sunset time. Approximately 2 hours before the park closes.

Be more active”! That is exactly what I say to myself every morning.

The idea behind this visual story is to share with you a little bit of this activity and hopefully to inspire you to be more active too. The last time I went running, Vichy came up with the idea to provide me with their Mineralizing Thermal Water to try out. Using it on my sweaty skin after running up and down the Schonbrunn gardens was tremendously refreshing!

This face mist is powered by15 essential minerals (and not just some plain water that you can get from the tap of your kitchen). Apart from the refreshing feeling, it moisturize your skin and give you a glowy look.

Apart from using it while jogging, you can also use it in the morning after cleaning your face, and before you apply the Slow Age facial cream. Or you can take it with you and keep it on your office desk for when you need that refreshing vibrant glow.

For travelers, don’t leave home without it. The spray bottle comes in a convenient travel size (available with 50ml) which is airplane appropriate and it works nicely for jogging as well, since nobody likes to carry many things while running, right?

How I use it: I apply it on a cleansed skin and I spray it all over my face in a circular motion. Then either you can leave on for a few seconds and blot it with a tissue or just leave it to dry without blotting it.

The most important thing of all is to keep in mind that using Mineralizing Thermal Water is a natural solution for boosting skin quality. Focus on having a healthy base because this can make your make up look even better on your skin.

Be sun smart

I can remember myself as a teenager. I used to spend my summers on a Greek island. Summer holidays for me mean sun, sea and the beach. As teenagers, we had an entire month of holidays.

Be sun smart

During that month, my coevals and I used to spend all day carefree on the beach, totally ignoring the risk of sun damage to our skin. It didn’t even occur to us that UVA rays could cause sunburns.

All we cared about back then was playing volleyball and beach racket, socialize and get a tan. Because being tanned was (and still is?) more beautiful to the eyes.

I remember that at the beginning of those holidays, my skin looked dull and pale. After the over-exposure to the sun for one month on a Greek island, my skin became a colour similar to dark chocolate (very proud about it). My cousin would have big problems with dark sunspots on his face. As for myself, I had less sunspots. I can remember him complaining about it and trying to get rid of all his facial sunspots.

Apart from all the natural remedies such as aloe vera, lemon juice and milk, VICHY comes with a professional treatment: Ideal Soleil anti-dark spots care SPF50+. I am glad that I got the chance to test this product for myself, and to write a few words about this topic and spread a little bit of extra awareness about the vital importance of skin protection against the exposure to the sun.

I am glad to also be able to recommend a product for my cousin to use before he gets exposed to the sun again during his next summer holidays. If you also face similar problem, consider putting this product in your luggage the next time you pack for holidays.

I would also like to draw your attention to this product, Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand SPF50, that just launched recently. It’s a new formula, enriched with Vichy Mineralizing Water to ensure skin protection.

It keeps your skin hydrated and it has a velvety non-sticky feel, which allows sand to easily brush off of the skin.

Be sun smart, whether you are in the city or … on a Greek island savoring a slice of watermelon by the pool… just sayin’ hehe!
