Being routine-bound is vital if you want beautiful skin. My go-to nighttime skincare products begin with a strict Swedish regime. The routine starts with coating myself with pre-sleep ceramides and Swedish company Nóttnuit’s, DEW. Nottnuit’s LAVE Enzymatic Face Cleanser (1-2 pumps) is the second product in the routine. Next up is one pump of FORM. Then a spritzing squirt or two of HAZE Protecting Face Mist. Lastly, the task is completed by a rapid-fire blitz of DEW Rejuvenating Oil and a Vow Barrier Repair mask. I can jump into bed with a clear conscience, knowing I’m in for a multi-corrective good night’s sleep.
I may not wake up every morning luminous. But I can dream of it. Swedish natural skincare pioneer, Nóttnuit, believes in “The Power Of The Night.” Founded by a former nutritional therapist and a homeopath, its holistic products come in a specially formulated Scandi-synergistic system in cute velvet glass vials. Other products include Fend Rich face cream, Igni Clarifying face Serum, and volcanic ash face masks, among their other Swedish skin quenchers. Add to the morning schedule, Nottnuit’s 528 Hz tuning fork is a multi-functional wellness and beauty tool. It can be used to bring the nervous system, muscles, and organs into harmony – increase lymphatic flow, stimulate circulation, tone facial muscles, and ease tension.
Another Swedish firm, VERSO, is a pioneer in Vitamin A-based beauty. They offer a Day Face Fluid, Clarifying Cream, a Super Face Oil, and an indispensable day-time booster called Glow.
Few would disagree that Scandinavians have some of the best complexions in the world. But Nordic skin secrets are more than just buckets of ice-cold pure glacial water, and appreciating that one cloudberry contains as much as four times more vitamin C than an entire orange. Geir Ness’s $215 Skin of Norway Skin Care Collection contains natural, anti-aging ingredients like snow algae, improving skin cell longevity, and garden sprout extract, a natural skin toner. They also have mineral chrono-energizers to decrease cell fatigue, juniper sprout, cloudberry, and antioxidants that fight wrinkles.
Scandinavian faces are the ones to envy and Scandinavian countries are the places to fulfill your beauty needs and dreams. If I’m wrong, I’ll change my name to Frida or Frija.
