Our approach to skin care
Sprekenhus´s approach to skin care is to inspire good habits of wellbeing and care for your skin.
Inflammation caused by external stressors such as UV rays and free radicals can lead to the destruction of collagen, skin’s underlying support network. Our powerful antioxidant-rich formulas helps defend skin from environmental stressors.
A modern lifestyle
Among other environmental stressors, living in the city means having pollution and a rough environment for the skin. Anti-oxidant-rich products can help to protect your skin against pollutants and other aggressors. Skin cleansing during the evening becomes even more important when living in the city.
Dry skin and dehydrated skin are two different things. Dry skin means that skin is lacking oil, while dehydration means that there is a lack of water or moisture.
Changing temperatures as a result of air-conditioned environments can displace the skin´s natural response to regulate itself. By implementing an intelligent skin care regimen one can create a protective layer, reducing the impact of sudden changes in temperature and environment.

We encourage to continuously learn about what works for you and your environment. There are different environments and there are different skin types, all need their own approach. Finding your way requires adjusting and trying different dosages, times and order.
The seasons are what a symphony ought to be:four perfect movements in harmony with each other.’ Artur Rubenstein
A changing environment
Changing seasons can be beautiful, but we encourage an adapted approach to skin care. When weather shifts from cooler to warmer months, more gentle yet still effective products can be a good way to adapt.
‘Beauty is the wonder of wonders.’ OSCAR WILDE
Stress can affect the skin negatively and we encourage a balanced lifestyle with enough sleep and rest. Consistency in skin care routines can help you to take a timeout for yourself and act as an anchor for prioritising yourself. Pay attention to your skin and take time for yourself; an active lifestyle is a great way to obtain a fresh mind and skin.
A warm bath before bed can be very relaxing. By including some botanical oils into the bath you will have some gentle, soothing and stimulating effects perfect for unwinding.

When you have access to the full skin care line, you will be able to take care of your skin no matter where you are. Especially for the days where you are active a good idea is to cleanse both at morning and during the evening so you give your skin time to recover before all externalities kick in again.
