It’s official: back to work season has shown its exciting presence. The summer-to-fall transition is gradual, yet the signs are clear: a fewer amount of Instagram posts showing off sunsets, stores displaying their fall collections and the oh-so striking view of people walking the streets determinedly instead of strolling. Though the temperature is falling, the fall enthusiasm is in fact increasing. Warm summer days do certainly have their charm, but let’s be frank: that humidity was exhausting. Sweaty sundresses stand no chance against crisp office looks and cozy knitwear.

Sure, it’s a great pleasure to have time off, get tons of sleep and having ice cream for both breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner (summer is lawless). Nevertheless, it’s fair to discuss whether those habits really are sustainable in the long run. In the field of psychology, theories often claim that intrinsic motivation comes with the feeling of autonomy, competence, and relatedness. To have a tangible reason for getting up in the morning. That being said, a never-ending vacation really could make the sanest person go mad.

One of the greatest perks of going back to work is getting to start over whatever didn’t go as planned last season. Unhappy with the way you dressed? Update your closet with some fall essentials. Not content with your spring workout? Get back on the running track, or whatever floats your exercise-boat. Feel like your skin care never really did the job? Now, more than ever, is the time for improvement.

Skin care inclusion is skin care innovation

Digging deep in the world of skin care is addictive, yet somehow exclusive for a limited group of people. Advanced products with miracle-like effects are usually developed for a skin type that doesn’t damage from the ordinary ingredients and chemicals. For those who have sensitive skin that easily rashes or breaks out, product ranges have been limited to mild products with equally mild effects. Until now. Advanced Skin Care is developed to suit the sensitive skin type yet improve skin’s texture and appearance like any other miracle-like product would.

The multi-beneficial effects of Advanced Skin Care

Our aim when developing the Cell Renewal - Facial Cleanser was a product that could be deep cleansing and luster-boosting as well as having soothing and nourishing effects. Any other premium brand facial cleanser will give you both, but not necessarily simultaneously. The Cell Renewal - Facial Cleanser has anti-aging, anti-pollution, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects which basically are all the anti’s one could possibly need. On the other hand, it’s not anti-moisture. Quite contrary - it nourishes richly as well as it cleanses. Magic in a bottle, really.

Advanced Skin Care, a facial serie that contains AHA, BHA and retinol.

Any skin care junkie has probably come across – and dug deep into - the mega-hyped hyaluronic acid. In the Cell Renewal - Facial Cream, the miraculous hyaluronic acid is accompanied by BHA, AHA and retinol. The AHA and BHA acids open the pathways for the retinol to enter deep underneath the skin. The process could be compared to a personal trainer for your skin cells. The result is boosted cell renewal, increased collagen- and elastin production with reduced pores and hyperpigmentation. Can we get a ”no thank you!” to that? No? That’s what we thought.  

Possibly the greatest struggle of all in the area of sensitive skin types is mastering the art of exfoliating. Traditional guidelines on exfoliating sensitive skin are usually to use a mild chemical peel but never (ever!) as often as on a weekly basis. Löwengrip would on the other hand never (ever!) settle, so we developed the Cell Renewal - Facial Exfoliant. Finally, people whose skin easily damages have been invited to the ’advanced chemical peel club’. The Cell Renewal Facial Exfoliant works wonders on fine lines and wrinkles, pushes through the epidermis and the dermis of the skin, removes dead skin cells, reduces visibility of pores and maximizes your glow. A wise woman once said ”those who peel, heal.”* (*source non-existent, which is somewhat irrelevant as long as the statement adds up. It must have been said.).

The Advanced Skin Care product range is developed, and suitable, for sensitive skin. An important reminder, though, is that people react differently to various formulas, especially active ones. That’s why it’s essential to highlight the importance of making sure a specific product fits your individual skin type. Regardless of the product, make sure to always try on a small amount on your neck and leave on for 24 hours, before you jump right on a new range of products. If it works just fine: feel free to get back to work (-ing on your skin care).

Advanced Skin Care series includes three facial products.
