Skin care advice and ingredients ABC

  • CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of more than 80 cannabinoids found in the cannabis sativa plant. For thousands of years, the plant has been used by many cultures around the world, primarily for its many health benefits. Today, CBD is growing in popularity as more and more people are discovering its benefits.

  • CBD is said to regulate oil production, which is thought to be a contributing factor of acne. According to a 2014 study published by The Journal of Clinical Investigation, CBD may have an anti-inflammatory effect on sebocytes, the skin cells that produce sebum and therefore regulate sebum production.

    CBD is also said to help reduce inflammation. As an anti-inflammatory, CBD may be able to help reduce swelling, pain, and redness from existing breakouts, or irritation from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

    Last but not least, CBD could help hydrate dry skin. Research from 2009 published by Trend Pharmacol Sci. suggests that CBD may be effective for dry, dehydrated skin.

  • CBD interacts with the so-called endocannabinoid system: a system that consists of countless small receptors that are distributed throughout the body (brain, cells, gastrointestinal tract and skin). When these receptors come in contact with CBD, they are activated and can bring more balance to the skin.

    Unlike when taken orally, when applied to the skin, CBD does not enter the bloodstream, but acts directly on the applied site. As a result, it not only works faster but also much more specifically and can help to strengthen the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.

  • Our CBD skincare line offers a multitude of benefits:

    It is soothing, therefore reduces redneess and irritation caused by environmental aggressors;

    It is balancing, therefore helps stressed skin find its own balance;

    It is regenerating, therefore supplies skin with powerful, anti-aging antioxidants.

  • CBD, like other antioxidants, interrupts free radical chain reactions, capturing free radicals or transforming them into less active forms, reducing oxidative stress.

    Oxidative stress breaks down collagen, hinders skin’s natural repair process and triggers inflammation — and these result in fine lines, wrinkles, acne breakouts and a dull skin tone. By fighting free radicals, CBD, like other antioxidants, can help prevent and correct these visible signs.

  • The unique combination of CBD and plant extracts in all Nordic Cosmetics products ensures that CBD and other active ingredients can build on each other - so the full potential can unfold.

  • Our products are formulated in such a way that they can be integrated into your existing care routine as a perfect add-on and give your skin that little extra kick.

    Of course, you may achieve better results if you use the entire Nordic Cosmetics line, since the products build on each other and support each other's effects.

  • No, none of the Nordic Cosmetics products contain hormones.

  • There's no one size fits all, but most dermatologists recommend exfoliating one to two times a week.

    Combining a gentle AHA or BHA exfoliant with a mechanical peeling can help remove that extra, dull layer of skin cells providing you with smooth and glowing skin.

  • Experts recommend starting to use anti-aging products as early as your mid-twenties as preventing aging might be easier than slowing it down. The introduction of anti-aging products should be paird with a healthy lifestyle and a diet rich in antioxidants.

  • Retinol can be used by nearly everyone if it is used correctly.

    Start off by using a gentle version of Retinol, like retynil ester, always use it in combination with a moisturizer (it will make sure your skin does not dry out), and start small applying Retinol only two or three nights a week and build up from there.

  • No, this doesn’t actually happen — but there is an exception.

    Skin can build up a tolerance to retinol, but not a tolerance against its effectiveness. In fact, jumping around to different products can do more harm than good, so try to stick with it.

  • Yes, you definitely need a separate eye cream. The skin around the eyes is thinner and needs a different kind of support than other skin on the face.

  • Figuring out the right skincare order can be overwhelming but it is important to apply your skincare products in the right order because if you don’t layer your products in the right order you could render your products totally ineffective.

    In the morning, start off by cleansing, follow up with a toner (optional) and serums. Apply your eye cream, spot treatment (if any), follow up with your moisturizer, face oil, and SPF.

    At night, start off by cleansing, follow up with a toner (optional) and serums. Apply your eye cream, spot treatment (if any), follow up with your moisturizer, retinol, and face oil.

  • The short answer is YES! UV rays can pass through glass windows and can penetrate clouds so because of this is important to wear SPF at all times during the day.

  • Hyaluronic acid is probably one of the best known anti-aging ingredients on the market. A naturally-occurring water molecule found in the human’s body, itcan bind and store moisture and large amounts of water. The majority of hyaluronic acid is found in the skin where it has a plumping effect and significantly improves skin elasticity and tone.

    Anti-aging properties

    Hyaluronic acid is well known for its anti-aging properties. When applied topically through cosmetics products, it can reduce small wrinkles, making the skin appear firmer and more radiant.

    Moisture storage

    As hyaluronic acid actively binds with water in the skin, helping to prevent dryness. This can help give the skin a more radiant and youthful look.

  • Along with hyaluronic acid, retinol (vitamin A) is another highly effective anti-aging ingredient. In recent years, retinol has gained in popularity as not only does it have anti-aging properties, but it also removes dead skin particles on the epidermis, making the skin look smoother.

    Anti-aging properties

    Retinol is well known for its anti-aging effects – it actively supports the production of an enzyme that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is an enzyme that enhances the skin’s elasticity and resilience against harmful external influences.

    Cell metabolism

    Retinol also improves the cell’s renewal metabolism. This means that dead skin cells can be removed better and faster, so the pores clog less quickly and inflamed sebaceous glands are able to recede. This refines the skin texture, actively preventing acne and pimples.

  • Not only is Vitamin C important for our overall health, but it’s also crucial for our skin. Vitamin C is able to neutralize free radicals and therefore protect our skin from aging and dehydration. It also promotes the skin’s collagen production and can even fade pigmentation caused by sun exposure to make the skin look young and bright again. Last but not least, Vitamin C can also accelerate the skin’s recovery from wounds.

  • Vitamin E is an essential vitamin for a healthy looking skin. It neutralizes free radicals and has a positive effect on the skin's moisture balance by keeping the skin sufficiently moisturized. Especially during the night, our skin gets some well-needed rest, and Vitamin E plays a crucial role in ensuring the rejuvenation of the skin during this time.

  • Vitamin F primarily protects the skin from drying out by reducing fluid loss through the skin surface, but it also repels harmful substances like bacteria from the outside. When applied to hair instead of skin, vitamin F improves the elasticity and strength of the hair.

  • The beta carotene, fatty acids, and different sorts of vitamins found in avocado oil help moisturize and protect the skin from damaging UV rays, and can support collagen production. In particular, very dry skin can benefit from skincare products containing this oil as its rich formula supports the skin’s barrier against external stressors that might otherwise dry it out.

  • Aloe vera is said to have anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and soothing properties. The cooling gel helps with burns (especially sunburn), inflammatory skin diseases, and promotes skin regeneration. Its antiseptic, cooling and nourishing effect makes it an integral part of skin and hair care.

  • Camphor is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and wound-healing properties. It also has cooling effects that make it especially useful for muscle pain, and dry and tired skin.
