The Scandi Way: A Holistic Approach to Wellness

Eleni & Chris products are the first step to great skin…but it shouldn’t stop there. For lasting results, adopt a holistic approach to wellness – one that is inspired by the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Many Scandinavians embrace a well-rounded approach to great skin, not only focusing on what they apply directly to their faces, but also paying particular attention to what they eat and how they exercise. Below you’ll find a helpful checklist of how you too can enjoy great looking skin with a foundation of good health and a few of our favorite Eleni & Chris products.

Eat Your Veggies

Vegetables pack a particularly big nutritional punch, plus dozens of them actually aid in detoxification, like broccoli, kale and cabbage. The baby versions of these cruciferous veggies offer even higher counts of nutrients, with more vitamin C and E than their regular versions, which can help your skin achieve that coveted Scandinavian glow. Add these types of baby greens to sandwiches and salads, and pair them with an Eleni & Chris Glow Face Mask and your skin will be looking smooth, hydrated and radiant in no time.

Sweat It Out

Sweating has restorative properties for your skin. Whether you go on a brisk walk or take a hot yoga class, as you sweat, you flush out toxins from your pores, which leads to smoother skin. A big part of the Scandi lifestyle is to use a sauna for this very reason. It’s a great way to give yourself a good flush, just be sure to drink plenty of water before and after your session – which should only last 10 minutes at a time. Another great tip that we follow is to wash your face before you enter to sauna to remove any sweat buildup from a workout or that you may accumulated throughout the day. For a clean canvas, use the Eleni & Chris Cleansing Foam to prevent your pores from being clogged.

Simplify Skin Care

Even in a climate that’s often harsh and unforgiving, Scandi women seem to always look effortlessly beautiful and that’s because they use products with pure, natural and clean ingredients. Among the preferred ingredients in their products is cloudberry. 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!
