Start the new year with Clara Lykkegaard
The Christmas season is almost coming to an end, and we look forward to the new year with great expectations. Many of us have a big wish or goal that we would like to realize in the new year. You may have wanted to do something good for yourself for a long time, but haven't had the time or energy to start. January is the perfect month to create new habits and routines that stick. A new habit, which is good for both body and mind, is a skin care routine. Many find it meditative to take care of the skin, it creates well-being and gives a respite in the otherwise busy everyday life. At LYKKEGAARD, we believe that you deserve to be pampered every day. That's why we asked Clara Lykkegaard what her skincare routine looks like, so you can get inspiration for your New Year's resolution.
What's your go-to skincare routine?
I start my day by cleansing my face with cleansing foam and then dab my face with face tonic on a cotton pad, after which I finish with my favorite day cream (Anti-pollution). In the evening, I again use cleansing foam and face tonic to remove make-up and clean the skin of dirt. I finish the day with my night cream (Revitalizing Moisture night cream), which is allowed to work overnight.
How did you start your skincare routine?
I started by finding out what skin type I have. It is crucial to know your skin type so that you can give your skin the right care and attention. When I started my skin care routine, I set a goal to make my skin care routine a part of my everyday life and thereby do something good for myself. Over time, it has become a completely natural part of my everyday life, and I love pampering my skin with healthy, nourishing and delicious products.
Can you feel a difference in your skin after starting your skin care routine?
Yes, I certainly can. I can feel that my skin is cleaner because I clean it thoroughly every day with proper products, and I therefore also get fewer impurities.
Does your skin care help you in other ways than with your skin?
I enjoy and take time to take care of my skin, especially my face, as it is really important. I also think it's great to know which ingredients I'm putting on my skin and know for sure that they are ingredients that only do something good. This therefore gives me more well-being and I can go out knowing that my skin, for example, is protected from contamination, which gives me peace of mind.
Do you have time for your skin care routine every day?
Some days I don't make it, but those days usually happen when I'm on the go. I always think about it if I don't reach it or have forgotten my routine products, as I would prefer to reach my skin care routine every day. I therefore make every effort to achieve it.
Every time I e.g. have to sleep somewhere other than myself, I always have a small toiletry bag with me, where I can put my favorite go-to products. That way, I know I have my products with me, and therefore there is no need to not going through my skincare routine as I know it's only doing something good for my skin.
So what do you do on the days when you don't have time for your skincare routine?
When I'm out, for example, I actually don't use other people's products, as I'd rather not use anything other than what my skin is used to, and therefore wait to go through my skin care routine until I'm back home.
Do you have other skin care routines that you don't do every day, but maybe once a week or once a month?
I make sure to clean my skin extra thoroughly with LYKKEGAARD's scrub mask, as it removes all dead skin cells and generally cleans the face more thoroughly. I prefer to use it once a week.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start a skincare routine but don't know where to start?
I think that they should find out what kind of skin type they have and in that way find out whether their skin needs moisture or fat, etc., so that they can get the right balance in their skin. After that, it's just a matter of buying the right products.
Do you have other (beauty) tips and tricks?
The skin remains beautiful and healthy if it is cared for and taken care of with the right products.
