Swedish girls have great skin, and no it’s not all down to the harsh weather and their diets, they know how to take care of what they have and protect themselves from the environment. So if you find yourself staring at Swedish models and wondering “how?”, wonder no more, because their skin care secrets are easy to copy!

1. They never shirk on skincare

 

Now we all know this, but I bet most of us don’t do it religiously. Because the weather gets so cold in Sweden, it’s important for Swedish women to take extra care of their skin keep it hydrated, which means using a serum that really packs a punch.

Verso Skincare’s healing serum is the secret to Swedish beauty, it’s hydrating, plumping, reduces wrinkles and discoloration and gives your skin a flawless healthy boost of collagen. Find out why it’s a favorite here.

 

2. They protect their skin from harsh weather

I spend half my time trying to clear my skin of oils, but there are some good oils out there that will do absolute wonders for your skin, and don’t the Swedes know it. This best-selling organic skincare oil is your best-kept secret for clear skin. It’s designed for weather worn complexions since the weather in Sweden can get a bit harsh, so you know it’ll protect you from the signs of environmental aging while keeping your skin radiant and clear! Buy it here.

3. They don’t leave it up to chance

We all know the damage that pollution can do! It’s shocking, and you might have noticed how Swedish girls all have this lovely clear complexion that comes with living in a fairly cold country, but you should know they don’t leave their skin care regime up to chance. Swedish products are always designed to solve a problem, and this anti-pollution mist will protect your skin from premature aging. No wonder they all look so youthful! Buy it here.

4. They know skin care doesn’t stop at the neck

Skin care doesn’t just stop at the neck, you know. The weather in Sweden can dry out skin all over your body so Swedish girls are smart about nourishing every inch of their skin. Nobody wants a super smooth youthful face but aging hands, do they? This hand cream contains tobacco leaves to nourish your skin and macadamia oil to leave them silky soft but not too oily. It’s seriously perfect! Buy it here.

5. They eat a lot of fish and vegetables

It’s all in a good diet. The Swedish diet staples are fish and vegetables, which we know are amazing for your skin. Try to up the amount of omega oil you’re consuming and have fresh vegetables at least three times a week. You might see your skin start to glow in as little as one week! Swedish people believe in moderation, which is why they have days like ‘Waffle Day’, an acceptable day to go cray-cray with the waffles.

6. They know the power of a sauna

Yes, it’s all about the sauna. It’s great for your skin and a lot of Swedish models swear by the detoxifying powers of a sauna, but let’s not forget, most of us can’t just jump into a sauna every weekend. That’s why you should invest in a facial steamer. This one is super easy to use (and highly rated by other converts of steaming!). It’s designed to bring the spa into your home, this steamer infuses your skin with hydration for instant results. It’s relaxing and will give you a new complexion in just 9 minutes. Want! Buy it here.

7. They know the power of sleep

The days are different in Sweden. In winter it’s darker, sometimes sunless and in summer there can be light for 24 hours. Because of this, disrupted sleep is common and plenty of research goes into getting the perfect night’s sleep between seasons. You need to repair your skin while you sleep. Our absolute favorite sleep mask will do that, it’s silk (so feels amazing!) and will keep all your beauty products on your face as well as reduce any tugging, wrinkles, or lines on your skin while you sleep! Buy it here.
