Hygge skin care: calm & comfort your complexion

Hygge skin care: calm & comfort your complexion

Our founder, Charlotte Vøhtz, was born in Denmark and her Danish heritage has had a big influence on the style and substance of our products, as well as the culture in our UK office and warehouse.

A true Dane, Charlotte believes in hygge and in this post we’ll explain how hygge skin care can help you to achieve cosy and comfortable skin.

 

What is hygge?

Hygge is a Danish word and while some compare this quality to cosiness, as Charlotte explains, the term is a more prompt to find joy, comfort and contentment.

“For me, hygge is all about togetherness at home and taking time out from life’s stresses.”

 

What is hygge skin care?

Showing yourself and others self care is a great way to incorporate hygge into your lifestyle and our Nordic Roots range provides a hygge beauty ritual that creates that calm and content feeling.

This hygge-inspired skin care range was made using functional Scandinavian extracts that work in synergy to provide cosy skin comfort and is designed to be so simple to use that, even if you only have 5 minutes to spare, you can take pleasure from small self-care moments.

Using Nordic facial oil for a moment of hygge

A little of this lightweight facial oil goes a long way and its formulation was inspired by Charlotte’s happy hygge childhood memories of her mother wrapping her skin in seaweed.

It features an extract from Atlantic Seaweed that is rich in minerals and is a hygge skin care product that can be used in several ways.  

  1. Use it on its own to condition the skin by promoting hydration and skin-firming collagen synthesis
  2. Use as the last stage of your hygge skin care routine and to seal serums and moisturiser into the skin to prolong their hydrating effects
  3. Use with a Gua Sha stone for facial massage

A great way to support the skin’s circulation and to release tension from the face, our Nordic Roots Midnight Oil Gift Set features a full-size Nordic Roots Marine Facial Oil, a heart-shaped Obsidian Gua Sha and a sachet of Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum and gives you everything you need to treat your skin to the comforting feeling of hygge before bedtime.

Take it slow and enjoy the pleasure you get from sweeping this reusable facial tool over the skin, having first created slip with the Nordic Roots Marine Facial Oil.

 

3 more ways to enjoy hygge

CREATE TOGETHERNESS

Arguably the most important aspect of hygge is coming together and sharing a good time with the people you care about. Use your Hygge skin care to host a Hygge pamper party on zoom or better still, in person.

 

CREATE COSINESS

Make skin care more inviting by creating a cosy area to apply your Hygge skin care. Light some candles for a soft glow or use a diffuser to create a cosy atmosphere with the Alexandra Kay pure essential blends featured in the Me Time Scent collection.

 

CREATE JOY

Create joy in Hygge skin care by trying something different. Make a homemade face mask by mixing a little of the Hyaluronic Booster Serum with the Marine Facial Oil or use our guide to Gua Sha to restore calm to your skin and your mind.
