Adjusting your skincare regimen with the changing seasons.

With the changes in the seasons it is always a good time to reflect on how you are treating mind, body and soul.

A skin regimen is a systematic approach to skincare along with healthier eating, more exercise and a positive outlook on life that will impact your physical and mental wellbeing. 

Right from when we created the first Sprekenhus products our vision has been on quality and purity, based on carefully selected natural ingredients. Combing our organic products with a comprehensive approach to skin and hair care is a great way to prepare for autumn and the colder weather to come.

Great skin is not simply a matter of DNA — your daily habits, stresses and the environment you live in all have a big impact on what you see in the mirror. 

The science behind skin-care products has come a long way but there’s still no quick fix. You need to be consistent in your routines and give it time before you start to reap the benefits. 

Sprekenhus products contain high quality natural ingredients, carefully chosen to create a range designed to build up the resilience of your skin to the stresses of everyday life.

Here’s our simple guide to creating your very own skincare routine:

1. Cleanse

It’s important to regularly use a gentle facial cleanser, to help remove the build-up of dirt that collects on the skin. 

Cleansing prevents the pores blocking and improves hydration in preparation of applying a moisturiser. 

Begin with clean damp hands and a dry face. Pour a tea spoon of Face Cleanser into the palm of your hand and lather. Massage over your face and neck, then rinse off with warm water and towel dry gently.

The Sprekenhus Face Cleanser offers exceptional cleansing without stripping your skin of it's natural oils. A gentle blend of botanicals provides a mild, low-foaming gel cleanser for sensitive or normal skin. This is a highly moisturising gel with bergamot to heal and provide a calming effect with rosemary to relax the skin.

2. Tone

A gentle, everyday toner suited to all skin types bridges between cleansing and hydrating – toning balances the skin ready to receive the benefits from hydration.

After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and wipe across the face and neck, or splash onto the palms of your hands and then pat onto clean skin.

This gentle skin-balancing blend, named for its inclusion of Rosemary and Ylang Ylang extract, offers light hydration and anti-oxidant protection - preparing your skin for subsequent hydration.

3. Hydrate

After cleansing your skin, a nourishing, daily moisturising cream should be applied. Ideally, you should moisturise morning and night to provide a barrier against a harsh climate especially now that we can already feel the change in the seasons. This will help to keep your skin hydrated and glowing.

The Sprekenhus Face Cream omits in it's formulation many known aggravators of sensitive skin, including conventional artificial preservatives. The complex blend of plant extracts is instantly absorbed, providing maximum hydration where it is most needed. 

A mix of almond oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil and coconut oil create a truly nourishing and protective foundation for the skin.

4. Repair

Inflammation caused by external stressors such as UV rays and free radicals can lead to the destruction of collagen, skin’s underlying support network and expedite the ageing process. 

Our powerful vitamin and antioxidant-rich formulas helps defend your skin from these environmental stressors.

The Sprekenhus Eye Cream is a potent blend of anti-oxidants for all skin types. This concentrated formula is designed to deliver rich nourishment to the delicate skin surrounding the eyes. Anti-oxidants offer premium protection while botanical extracts impart intense hydration.

The Sprekenhus skin care line means you don't have to compromise on taking care of your skin. We’ve never used ingredients from animal sources, use artificial colours or synthetic fragrances and all our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Sprekenhus create skin, hair and body care products with gentle, yet effective formulations with a focus on minimalist design. Based on the Scandinavian tradition where functional design meets beauty, in our formulations and in our contrasting packaging design. 

We hope that we go some way towards helping you generate positive energy and wellbeing by using our products.
