How to simplify your skincare routine.

When it comes to skincare, we believe that less is more. Here is a guide to simplifying your skincare routine with only the essentials. Your skin will thank you for it.

Eye Serum


The first signs of aging often become visible around the eyes. The skin around your eyes is different from the rest of your face. It’s thinner, more sensitive, and prone to milia (milk spots). If you’re concerned about crow's feet and puffy eyes, you’ll get better results from a targeted eye serum with active ingredients, versus a face serum or cream that is only intended for hydration.

“I used to have ‘milk spots’ under my eyes before I started to apply eye serum. I am a minimalist when it comes to skincare. To simplify my skin regimen, I used face serum on my entire face, including eye areas. Because the face serum was too oily for my eye area, the ‘milk spots’ became more obvious,” Louisa Cheng recounts.

However, every skin is different. If you don’t have a concern with your eye area, you can skip the eye serum. 


If you are having a hectic lifestyle and want to restore your skin’s youthfulness, Eyes with Radiance Eye Serum can energize your tired skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and puffy eyes. 

Eyes with Radiance Eye Serum uses the Swiss-sourced active ingredient called IceAwake™. It is based on the extract of a bacterium that was isolated from soil below a Swiss glacier. It rejuvenates the skin, increases radiance, and reduces the tired appearance that comes from a hectic lifestyle and too little sleep.

Face Serum


Face serums are typically thinner and deliver a non-greasy feel. They are intended to penetrate deep into the skin to deliver targeted active ingredients. Most serums are ingredient-focused products, so finding formulas that work with you is really important. If you don’t have dry skin or feel the need to layer on moisturizer, then you are totally fine to use serum alone. 


Unfortunately, good skin isn’t built in a day. Dealing with sensitive skin can be an uphill battle. We don’t have the luxury of splashing any random product on our faces. The last thing any of us wants is a painful breakout in the middle of our day. And truth be told, a number of skincare products include the same harsh ingredients that trigger your skin the moment they touch your face.

That’s why we took our time to create a gentle face serum that protects your skin and activates your skin’s youthfulness -Glow Up Essence Face Serum. The serum contains Snow Algae, a Swiss-sourced high performance active ingredient that gives you a youthful glow all day. It rejuvenates and protects your skin at a cellular level, and works deep into your skin to make sure your skin is renewed, smooth, and hydrated. 



Facial cleansers play an important role in your skincare routine. It’s critical to maintaining healthy looking and feeling skin. A common benefit of facial cleansing is the removal of dirt, oil, and other unwanted debris. Without washing, your skin would be covered with a thick layer of dirt and grime which make it difficult for other products to penetrate the skin properly. 

Facial cleansing is important, but don’t overdo it. If your skin tends to be oily, you can try cleansing twice a day to see if it works for you. Cleansing in the evening for many people can be all that you need. 


Throughout the day, lots of dirt, oil, bacteria, dead skin cells and several other environmental particles can accumulate on your face. What you need is a daily deep face cleaning in the evenings. This keeps away all impurities from settling and causing damage on your skin. The Energy Boosting Wash is your perfect go-to. It clears your skins of all impurities and keeps your skin hydrated. 

Energy Boosting Wash is a fragrance-free hydrating cleanser containing Snow Algae, a Swiss-sourced active ingredient that keeps your skin hydrated and activates its youthfulness. The cleanser also contains Jojoba Oil, rich in vitamins A, E and D which nourish and protect your skin and activate its healing properties. 



An exfoliator removes the oldest layer of dead skin cells and makes room for new cells to come in. It’s an essential step to maintaining that healthy glow, improve skin texture and tone, and prevent pesky breakouts. For those prone to blemishes and clogged pores, exfoliation should be the main focus of your routine. 

When exfoliating, it’s important to be gentle to your skin. If you’re new to exfoliators, we recommend starting slowly and using them once a week. You can gradually build up your use to 2 to 3 times a week or as needed. 


Dead and dry skin cells on your face can be a heck of a problem. The oil produced in your skin is blocked by dead skin cells, which can eventually lead to breakouts and blackheads. To gently exfoliate your skin, we recommend the Clear Dull Skin Exfoliator which is made with good-for-you ingredients and is fragrance free. The product contains Snow Algae, a Swiss-sourced high active ingredient that keeps your skin hydrated and activates its youthfulness. The exfoliator also contains rice powder, rich in amino acids, Vitamin E and ferulic acid, which soothe and keep your skin hydrated. The Clear Dull Skin Exfoliator is suitable for those with sensitive skin.
