Toning is Essential

Toning is just as important as cleansing. Europeans tend to follow up cleansing with a good toner to remove any remaining traces of dirt, oil, and debris from the days hustle. It’s an effective way maintaining healthy, vibrant skin without introducing to much harsh chemicals which can leave you face feeling parched and fast track signs of aging.

Try Alternative Oils and Berries

Much like our diets, our skin requires a variety of good skin food ingredients. Nordic Skincare Lumene Vice President Joe Pastorkovich highlights the importance of vitamins, fatty acids, and natural plant-based ingredients to stay youthful and radiant through the ages. A high volume of vitamins, healthy fats from oils, and antioxidants has anti-inflammatory effects while helping to plump up the skin.

They are also huge fans of saunas, not only for the calming spa day vibes, but also for its skincare benefits which allow them to sweat out oil and impurities.
