Buna fetelor!/Hey girls!

Protectia solara este foarte importanta in orice anotimp, in special vara, deoarece in aceasta perioada ne expunem, inevitabil, mai mult la soare. Prin aplicarea zilnica a protectiei solare, reducem riscul aparitiei cancerului de piele si inmultirea semnelor imbatranirii premature. Pentru o protectie solara eficienta, insa, trebuie sa tinem cont si de urmatoarele aspecte:

Protecting our skin from UV rays is very important the whole year, especialy in the summer, when we dress lighter and we are more outdoor. By applying sun protection on a daily basis, we reduce the risk of skin cancer and premature aging signs. However, for an effective sun protection, we must consider some aspects:

  • crema/ lotiunea cu FPS trebuie aplicata cu cel putin 30 de minute inainte de expunerea la soare, ca aceasta sa poata intra in piele si sa actioneze;
  • we should apply sunscreen approximately 30 minutes before going out in the sun. Sunscreens needs time to integrate in to our skin, in order to protect it.
  • protectia solara trebuie aplicata peste tot, deci indicat este sa facem asta inainte sa ne imbracam;
  • sun protection must be applied everywhere, so it’s best to do that before we get dressed;
  • buzele necesita si ele protectie UV.  Cea mai simpla metoda este folosirea unui balsam de buze cu FPS, care trebuie reaplicat mai des, decat lotiunea de corp, pentru ca, atunci cand vorbim, mancam sau bem, se sterge din stratul de balsam;
  • we must protect our lips as well with a lip balm, that has SPF. We should re-apply this more often then the other sunscreen products, because talking, eating and drinking will erase it more quickly.

  • sunt zone pe care, de obicei, omitem sa le protejam, cum ar fi degetele de la maini si picioare, talpile, laba piciorului, subratul, urechile, pleoapele. Protectia solara trebuie aplicata peste tot!
  • there are some parts of our body, where we usually skip applying sunscreen, like our fingers. toes, feet, underarm area, ears, eyelid. We must protect our whole body, including those areas!
  • tenul este mai sensibil, decat restul pielii, motiv pentru care trebuie sa folosim o crema cu FPS special conceputa pentru zona fetei;
  • we should use a special cream with SPF for our face, because this area is more sensitive, then the rest of our body;
  • pielea trebuie protejata de razele UV si cand nu este soare, deoarece acestea patrund prin nori si ne pot afecta;
  • we must protect our skin even when it’s cloudy, because UV rays get through the clouds as well;

  • geamurile casei sau parbrizul masinii nu ne feresc de razele UV, deci protectia solara trebuie aplicata si cand suntem inauntru sau in masina;
  • windows or windshields won’t protect us from the UV rays, so we must apply sun protection even when we are indoor or in the car;
  • reaplicarea protectiei solare este la fel de importanta ca si aplicarea ei. Specialistii in domeniu afirma ca, aceasta reaplicare trebuie sa aibe loc la fiecare 80 de minute, chiar daca produsul folosit este rezistent la apa;
  • reapplying sunscreen is as important as applying it.  Specialists say we should do that at every 80 minutes, even if the product is water resistant;
  • este indicat sa folosim produse cu FPS 50 in perioadele cand soarele este mai puternic (primavara/ vara), atat pentru fata, cat si pentru corp, iar in restul anului FPS 30, insa nu mai mic decat acesta;
  • we should apply sunscreen with SPF 50 at least, in the spring-summer season, and SPF 30 in the rest of the year;
  • parte importanta a protectiei solare este si hidratarea: trebuie sa bem cel putin 2l de apa pe zi, indiferent de anotimp.
  • it’s also important, for an effective sun protection, to stay hydrated and drink at least 2l of water daily, regardless of the season.

Pentru cele dintre voi care nu stiu ce inseamna FPS 30 sau FPS 50, as vrea sa mentionez faptul ca FPS este prescurtarea pentru Factor de Protectie Solara, iar cifra reprezinta perioada de timp care se scurge dupa aplicarea acestui FPS, pana cand pielea va incepe sa arda. De exemplu daca ai pielea deschisa la culoare, care se inroseste repede de la soare, sa zicem dupa aproximativ 10 minute, inseamna ca vei rezista 500 minute la soare fara sa te arzi, aplicand un produs cu FPS 50, 300 minute  aplicand un produs cu FPS 30 samd.

I’d like to explain what SPF 30 or SPF 50 mean for those of you, who don’t know. The SPF is short for Sun Protection Factor. The number in front indicates the length of time, after application of this SPF, till your skin starts to burn in the sun. For example, if you have fair skin type, which burns easily, let’s say 10minutes after sun exposure, with SPF 30 it will take your skin 300 minutes to burn and with SPF 50, 500 minutes to burn.

Cam atat pentru azi, dragile mele! Voi folositi zilnic protectie solara? Tineti cont de cele enumerate mai sus?

Daca aveti completari sau sugestii legate de acest subiect, le astept cu drag in comentarii.

That’s all for today, my dears! Do you protect your skin daily from the UV rays? Did you know about these tips?

Favoritele lunii Mai/ May Favorites 2015

Buna fetelor/ Hey girls!

Parca nu imi vine sa cred ca deja este vara, si odata cu venirea ei s-a scurs aproape jumatate din acest an… Dar, in acelasi timp, ma bucur nespus de aceasta perioada , pentru ca, dupa cum va spuneam, ador soarele, caldura… Razele de soare ma fac sa zambesc si astfel orice zi devine mult mai frumoasa :).

Daca luna iunie este aici, inseamna ca a venit timpul sa va prezint preferatele mele din luna mai.  Sa incepem!

pizap.com14333561646931

I can hardly believe that summer is here, and that means that almost half of this year is already gone… But in the same time, I’m absolutely delighted, because it’s warm and sunny outside. The sun always makes me smile, and everyday starts better this way :).

If summer it’s here, it means that it’s time for me to show you my May Favorites. Let’s get started!

1. Ingrijire&machiaj/Beauty&make-up 

  • Astor Lip Lacquer in nuanta 120 Fashion Style/ Astor Lip Lacquer in the shade 120 Fashion Style

1-IMG_2751

Un produs pentru buze intr-o nuanta perfecta pentru vara, care odata aplicat se usuca mat. Este superb, il ador.

A lip product in a beautiful summer shade, that dries matte on the lips. It’s gorgeous, I love it.

  • Mini-farduri de pleoape de la Sephora/ Mini eyeshadows from Sephora

1-IMG_2755

Aceste farduri de pleoape le-am primit cadou de la Sephora, cu ocazia zilei mele de nastere, si mi se pare geniale: mici, compacte, culori neutre, pigmentate, perfecte pentru calatorii si nu in ultimul rand dragute.

This mini trio was a gift from Sephora for my birthday, and I think it’s great, because the eyeshadows are small, compacted, in neutral shades, pigmented, perfect for traveling and cute.

  • Oja cu efect de gel Essence in nuanta Whisper of spring/ Essence the gel nail polish in the shade Whisper of spring

1-IMG_2761

Gama aceasta de oje de la Essence mi se pare foarte buna, deoarece are culori frumoase si rezistentente. Arata bine chiar si pe unghiile mele deteriorate de aplicarea indelungata a gelului. Nuanta prezentata mai sus, imi place in mod special, deoarece este in culoarea mea preferata si ma duce cu gandul la liliac.

The gel nails polishes from Essence are really great: beautiful colors, that last on the nails, with a gel finish. This nail polish looks good even on my naturally not so good looking nails. I love the shade Whisper of spring, especially because it’s in my favorite color and it reminds me of the lilac tree.

  • Apa micelara Garnier Pure Active/ Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

1-IMG_2766

Garnier are niste ape micelare foarte bune, iar varianta Pure Active mi-a placut la fel de mult ca surioara ei mai mica pentru tenul sensibil :).  Are tot ce caut eu la un produs de genul, adica nu irita tenul si indeparteaza in mod eficient machiajul. Unde mai pui ca este si spornic :)?

The Garnier micellar waters are really good, and I liked the Pure Active one as mush as I did liked the one for sensitive skin. It has all the things that I want from this kind of product: removes makeup efficiently and its gentle with the skin. And bonus it’s also economical :).

  • Gel de dus Yves Rocher cu rodie/ Yves Rocher shower gel with pomegranate

1-IMG_2768

Era timpul sa mai inlocuiesc aroma de ceai verde a gelului de dus de la Yves Rocher si cu altceva, asa ca am ales acesta cu aroma de rodie. Si bine am facut, deoarece este un gel de dus energizant, care miroase super bine si pe care l-am folosit cel mai mult dupa orele de kangoo jumps.

It was about time to replace my green tea shower gel from Yves Rocher with something else, and I choose the one with pomegranate. It was a great decision, because this shower gel smells lovely and it’s energizing, that’s why I love to use it after kangoo jump classes.

2. Haine, pantofi, accesorii/ Clothes, shoes, accessories

  • Pantofii sport Nike Air Max Trax/ Nike Air Max Trax Footwear

1-644453-102-900x900

In afara de faptul ca Nike Air Max a devenit in ultima perioada un „fashion item”, trebuie sa mentionez si faptul ca acesti pantofi sunt foarte comozi si potriviti pentru mers mult pe jos sau stat in picioare perioade indelungate. Confortul se datoreaza pernelor de aer de pe talpa. Modelul de mai sus este perrfect pentru perioada verii, deoarece partea superioara este alcatuita din material textil, lucru ce permite piciorului sa respire. Trebuie sa marturisesc faptul ca, de cand ii am, i-am purtat aproape in fiecare zi :).

Beside the fact that lately Nike Air Max has become a „fashion item”, there is something that I’d like to mention: these shoes are perfect for people who stand up a lot or have to walk long distances.  They are comfortable thanks to the air cushions on the midsole.  The model from the photo above it’s perfect for summer also, because the upper it’s made from mesh that allows the feet to be ventilated. Since I’ve got them I’ve been wearing them almost every day :).

3.Diverse/ Random

  • Piesa lunii mai/ Mays favorite song

Yiruma, pe numele sau adevarat Lee Ru-ma, este un pianist si compozitor din Coreea de Sud. Superba piesa „River flows in you” face parte din albumul „First Love”, lansat in 2001. Daca nu ati ascultat melodia pana acum, cu siguranta o veti face de acum incolo. Senzatia de liniste care ma cuprinde la ascultarea acestei piese este de neegalat :).

Lee Ru-ma, better known by his stage name Yiruma, is a pianist and composer from South Korea. „River flows in you” is part of the album First Love,  released in 2001. If you didn’t listen to this song till now, you will surely do from now on. When I hear this song I feel peaceful and relieved.

  • Kangoo Jumps

Nu imi plac exercitiile facute la aparate in salile de fitness, motiv pentru care mi-am dorit sa incerc un sport distractiv si activ, care sa ma ajute sa ma tonific si sa ma mentin in forma.  Acesta este Kangoo Jumps, dar mai multe va voi povesti intr-o postare viitoare.

10393967_1044500612245644_2961985905177997909_n

Because I don’t like the clasical gym exercises I wanted to try out something that it’s fun and active, and that keeps me fit and motivated to go on. This is Kangoo Jumps! I will tell you more about it in a future post.

  • Capsunile/ Strawberries

strawberry1

Sunt printre fructele mele preferate primavara. In afara de faptul ca sunt antioxidanti si contin vitamina C, E, B1, B2, B6, K, PP, sunt si delicioase :),

Strawberries are my favorite spring fruits. Beside the fact that they have high antioxidant content and vitamins like C, E, B1, B2, B6, K, PP, they are also delicious.

Asta a fost tot pentru azi!Ne „vedem” data viitoare :).

That’s all for today! „See” you next time.

Iulia.
