”It’s a real thirst quencher for your skin”

The new moisturising series is here! Tell us, why did you decide to redo the series?

– I have always been nerdily interested in skincare and ingredients and I always pay attention to what’s happening in the business. The last few years a lot of new and exciting hydrating ingredients have popped up and that is why we have chosen to redo the moisturising series. The new series has brand new formulas, packaging and textures.

What is new with the series?

– For example, we have loaded the new series with low molecular Hyaluronic acid, a 3-step moisturising system called Trimoist that hydrates both immediately and long-term, more protective Antioxidants and also a sunscreen in the day cream.

What is special with low molecular Hyaluronic acid and Antioxidants?

– Low molecular Hyaluronic acid (which you can find in all four products) works deeper in the skin and binds moisture. The new serum also has two sizes of molecules that bind moisture on two different levels of the skin. Antioxidants are great for protecting the skin against free radicals that come from e.g. pollution, UV-light or emissions.

Who should use the series?

– The series is suitable for all ages and skin types, and of course for both men and women. After all, everybody needs a great moisturiser.

You have also had all the products undergo independent studies at a testing institute. Tell us more.

– For us it is very important to conduct independent studies so that we can measure the effects of the finished products, and not just the ingredients included. We’ve seen some great results where the studies show that you after three weeks of use have strengthened your skin barrier and improved the moisture balance significantly.

How will you use the products this summer?

– The new moisturising series is perfect to use during the summer if I don’t want something active every day (I usually use the ultimates series). We have added a sunscreen in the day cream which is something I have missed… moisturising serum is a real thirst quencher after a day in the sun! I also keep my eye gel in the fridge for an extra cooling and de-puffing effect in the morning.

What is your number one summer tip for healthy skin? 

– That’s a hard one. But I have to say use a day cream with sunscreen. And keep an eye gel on the nightstand to boost the delicate eye area with extra moisture every night. Other than that, my best beauty tip is always to exercise! It gives both me and my skin energy and glow.


Creating new routines

Voluntary quarantine or not – right now many of us are working from home to help reducing the spread of the virus. I find it quite hard to keep up good routines and for me, it really takes some discipline and effort to get things organized. Having two children at home who have distance education doesn’t make it any easier.

Planning your day, preferably including both work, exercise, family and routines, can be a challenge. Just like with my skincare routine, I try to find a good everyday routine even when having to work from my kitchen table.

07:00 – Good morning! If I have the energy, I start the day with 30 minutes of yoga, bringing out the yoga mat and putting on a pair of comfortable tights.

07:30 – Morning skincare routine. I take a quick shower and wash my face with cleansing facial wash. Thereafter I take care of my body with some body lotion and deodorant before continuing with my everyday skincare routine. Right now, I am using niacinamide formula, serum, eye cream and day cream with SPF (I go for the ultimate-series).

And a little bit of makeup… As I have a lot of video meetings I put on a light, natural makeup even though I work from home. This includes a CC cream, concealer, mascara and a cream rouge. Also a little super balm on both lips. Finally a quick blow-dry and a quick-fix hairstyle.

08:00 – Clothes. Wearing sweatpants all day makes me lose focus. Put on something that you feel comfortable in, but that you would also wear at the office. My go-to outfit right now is a pair of comfortable jeans, a blouse or a nice sweater.

8:30 – Finding focus. I try to have a clear agenda and prepared to-do list and like to put my phone in flight mode if I can so that I can work an hour or so without getting interrupted.

12:00 – Go for a walk. I always try to get some air and usually go for a walk around Hagaparken here in Stockholm. Afterwards, my teenagers (who are studying from home) and I eat lunch together.

13:00 – Some work again with digital meetings.

14:30 – Quick stretch. I go and make some coffee, do a quick stretch and spray on some refreshing face mist.

17:30 – “Go home”. It easily happens you never leave work when you are working from home. But try to leave the computer at the same time you usually leave the office. I often go for a walk with my neighbour Eva. Time flies by when I am with her and we talk uninterruptedly about everything. She is a doctor and I, of course, have a thousand questions and she has all the answers.

20:00 – get active /do something. Play cards with the teenagers, clean the closet (again), bake a sponge cake or watch a movie. In my family, we take turns in choosing a film for the night and the latest we watched was Francis Ford Coppola’s classic ”Apocalypse now”

21:00 – night routine. I always use a good cleanser, maybe an extra face mask and then, if I have the time, some polish and shaping of my nails.
