How does Isabella soothe her sensitive skin and which step in her daily routine is the most important? Löwengrip’s Skin Therapist and Head Trainer Emelie Focklin met up with former Co-Founder Isabella Löwengrip to discuss sensitive skin – and the products that have helped Isabella.
As a skin therapist, I would describe sensitive skin as something that varies over time: our skin tends to be more or less sensitive in different periods. Do you experience that your skin’s sensitivity varies over time?
"We founded Löwengrip due to the fact that my skin is always sensitive – all the time. For others, the sensitivity may vary more, but I’ve always had so much problems with sensitive skin and redness. We needed to develop a brand offering gentle products that work for sensitive skin – always."
By taking care of your skin and minimize irritations, it is possible to soothe sensitive skin. What happens with your skin when you use the wrong products?
"I’ve tried lots of essential oils and organic products that are very natural - but also very strong. What has happened is that my skin becomes red, irritated and extremly itchy."
A good routine that fits your skin is essential to maintain healthy skin. Which step in your routine are you extra careful with to keep your sensitive skin balanced?
"To always use a balancing cleanser! Clean & Calm Facial Cleanser helps soothe and hydrate my skin from the first step in my skincare routine, so I’d say this is the most important product to me."
"One of the key-ingredients in the Clean & Calm-series is Allantoin, which has an astringent, soothing and moisturizing effect. Perfect for sensitive skin!"
- Emelie Focklin, Skin Therapist and Head Trainer, Löwengrip
Which product is your go-to when your skin feels more sensitive and in need of a balancing boost?
"The Cream Facial Cream! It’s really amazing and perfect to use when your skin feels more sensitive. It instantly helps to soothe redness."
I agree! It contains Allantoin which has an astringent, soothing and moisturizing effect on sensitive skin. Do you have another favorite from the Clean & Calm series?
"I’d have to say the Sleeping Sensation Hydrating Mask! It’s a facial mask that you apply before bedtime at night. You’ll wake up with a completely hydrated skin – it's really amazing for us with super dry and sensitive skin!"
