For a while now, in order to get our daily dose of inspiration, we take a peek at the profiles of local influencers who have slowly but surely become our source of inspo for everything from food, beauty, and general lifestyle. Lately however, we noticed a growing focus on natural cosmetics in the beauty world. It is therefore not surprising that our BiH influencers are increasingly using them in their morning and night time routines.

We asked Erna Saljević (@divaisback) and Sarah Cerkez (@zapeljiva_lolita) whether they believe in the benefits of natural cosmetics and if they would reveal their personal tricks for achieving glowing and youthful skin.

“I never used to read the ingredients of the majority of products I used but listening to my skin and how it started to react to certain products, I began to change my habit. I now give priority to labels that justify what’s in the bottle. Immortelle is currently the leading ingredient in the products that I use, starting with my serum, day cream and facial scrub. It has a specific scent and it relaxes the skin, which is essential after using products with heavy chemicals for so long. I am currently testing many Gloria products and I am loving it. They proudly display the #madeinbih label which I whole heartedly support but I also noticed that my skin is very thankful” said Erna.

Sarah is a new mother of a four-month-old baby, and in addition to her skin, she has the added burden of caring for her baby’s skin as well. She revealed that natural cosmetics, along with a healthy diet, work best for her.

“I like to take care of myself and I thouroughly agree with the saying that beauty comes from within. My prirority is a healthy and natural diet, drinking enough fluids and plenty of exercise. I used to run to buy the most expensive creams, thinking the results would be better but I recently discovered a local brand that is affordable even though all the ingredients are 100% natural.  I’ve realized that the secret to perfect skin is really to keep it as simple and natural as possible. In the mornings I use the immortelle day cream, it has been remarkable, and in the evenings I focus on washing my skin extremely well, then I put on a light eye cream and moisturizer. For the past few days, I have been using Gloria products on myself and my baby and I can truthfully say that I am very satisfied.“

Erna also revealed her simple trick for creating a natural highlighter – currently a worldwide beauty trend. “During these cloudy days, when our skin is lacking a little sun, I add a couple of drops of serum into my BB cream or foundation and I instantly get a naturally glowing complexion that is not completely matte. I also dab some on my lips over my lipstick to get a natural and fresh look that moves away from the static, old matte look.
