My current home workout routine as a dancer (Lower body)

The last two weeks I have been working out at home since the new year started. I am a member at the gym, but I wanted to focus more on my flexibility and technic before the new dance semester is starting this week.
I will do an update routine when I have started with dance classes and lifting weights again.
This workout routine has only been something I´ve done to get the body started again after the christmas holiday.
So I usually do this workout every second day, and the other days I would focus on the upper body.

I start with warming up to this basic Pilates workout:

And then I do this booty workout! It burns so good if you don´t stop and just continue until your done with the first leg. Repeat X2 on each leg if you can! (Skip to 4:55 for the workout) :

After I´m done with those above I would do some leg raises in turn out, turn in and parallel. And then I will finish with a good flexibility training as the one below.
(Btw, she has 7 day´s of split flexibility workout on her channel, I´ve done them all and still do them everyday. They are really amazing to get deeper into your splits. Just thought I would share that with you if you want to improve your flexibility.)

So there you have my current workout routine at home. No equipment needed!
My splits have improved and I feel stronger, but I am ready to challenge myself again in dance classes and at the gym.

Amazing Polar Stratospheric Clouds

Happy New Years everyone!

I took these photos of polar stratospheric clouds right outside of our apartment on New years eve.
It was impossible to capture how it looked in real life, but oh well. It was like rainbow-colored skies, insanely gorgeous.
I never knew this existed until now. Mother earth is magical!

Have you ever seen polar stratospheric clouds before?

Winter skincare routine

I have been obsessed with products, tips and tricks on getting flawless skin since I was a teenager. And now, many years later I feel like I have pretty good knowledge on how to get beautiful skin. I will do many blog posts about skincare and skin tips in the future. But for today I want to share with you my winter skincare routine.

Right now I only use the brand Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr. One of the best brands in my opinion.
The ingredients in the products are well thought about, natural and organic. Most of the products are cruelty free and vegan as well, which is a huge factor for me.
I also believe that by using one brand is better for your skin since they are intended to complement each other.

You can buy products from Kora Organics HERE.


Step 1:
I always start by removing any make up that I have on my face. I use coconut oil and a damp bamboo cloth, I have found that it works best for my skin and removes all make up very nicely. After that my skin is already super smooth.

Step 2:
If I´ve had any make up on, I always wash my face with the cream cleanser 2 times!
First I massage the cleanser gently in to my face with my fingers and then rinse it off. After that I use my clearisonic with the cleanser to really get all the pores nice and clean. And if I went all make up free one day, I would just use my clearisonic one time with a cleanser.
After cleansing my face my skin is all clean and feels baby soft.

Step 3: 
Every second to third day I usually exfoliate my skin, it depends on how I´m feeling that day. Causally I feel like the clearisonic does a pretty good job with removing any dirt and oils from my face. But if I do, I will use the exfoliating cream which is a thin and gentle exfoliation that smooths my skin.

Step 4:
This step I only do once a week! And that is putting on a face mask.
Right now I am using a mud mask that gently purify, detoxifying and replenish the skin. I will do an own blog post about my favorite face mask in the near future.

Step 5:
When my face is fresh and clean I spray the energizing citrus mist all over my face to let dry.
If I feel my skin is dry I use the anti age oil instead. I switch between those two products depending on how I feel my skin is that day. I usually just use the spray.

Step 6:
The final step is of course to moisturize. I use the hydrating day and night cream now in the winter, and it really does hydrate my face tremendously without getting oily or sticky. I am obsessed with that thing. A little goes a long way.

In the morning I just cleanse the face with my fingers and then spray the mist all over the face, followed by gently massaging my face with moisturizer.

So that is my complete skincare routine for the winter.
Tell me in the comments what your favorite skincare brand is and why you like it so much!
