Even in a climate that’s often harsh and unforgiving, Nordic women seem to always look effortlessly beautiful. It’s because many Scandinavians embrace a simple approach to great skin: using products with pure, natural and clean ingredients. It is minimalist and uncomplicated, meaning that you won’t find yourself in the midst of an exhaustive, 11-step routine to bring out that coveted Scandinavian glow. Instead, with an easy routine that includes a few high-quality products you can begin to see results.
A ‘berry’ special fruit
Known for gorgeous landscapes and rich natural resources, this region produces the purest ingredients sourced directly from the Scandinavian environment, in particular the precious cloudberry. Generally, these berries are eaten plain or atop breakfast cereals, mixed into desserts, pressed to beverages, and, more recently, used for skin and hair care.
This rare berry naturally contains vitamins A, B, C, and E, as well as calcium and magnesium. A single Cloudberry contains as much as four times more vitamin C than an entire orange, helping skin to look younger for longer. This is why many of Eleni & Chris products contain cloudberry seed oil…from cloudberries that grow right from their Scandinavian backyard!
Now that you have the right ingredient, let’s talk about incorporating it into your routine.
A simple regimen
Begin with washing your face twice a day with the Eleni & Chris Cleansing Foam, in the morning and, most especially, at night. Nighttime cleansing is an excellent way to stimulate the internal processes that fight aging and because this cleanser has cloudberry in it, your cells can repair and renew themselves at a much faster rate. The high dose of Vitamin C in this potent arctic berry protects skin against free radicals that are the culprits for dullness in skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles.
Quality not quantity
By adding a mere two or three Eleni & Chris products to your daily routine, you will be showing off your Scandinavian glow in no time.
Start with the Eleni & Chris Anti-Aging Face Serum, as the lightweight, fluid texture will penetrate more deeply into the skin, showcasing more instant results. This particular serum is very rich in antioxidants and vitamins that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plus the cloudberries increase the skin’s cell renewal by 22 percent after just 24 hours.
Then use a moisturizer to lock in the moisture. You can choose an Eleni & Chris moisturizer for day and night according to your skin type. Each of those moisturizers feature Scandinavian Glacier Water, sourced directly from natural, untouched glaciers in the northernmost areas of Scandinavia. Pristinely clear and impeccably rich in oxygen, it's some of the purest water you'll find.
You can also use the award-winning light and refreshing Anti-Aging Face Mist over your make up to add instant moisture and glow.
