Recently I’ve found myself just wanting to give my skin a comforting hug…now that may sound weird …I mean how do you hug your skin, right? Well, you know the Danish concept of Hygge which loosely means comfort, warmth and cosines? Well, there are days when I feel that my skin wants that and that’s when I stray from my usual serums and treatment products and opt for products that feel soothing, comforting and gently effective, thanks to their use of nourishing ingredients from nature.

A Hug for the Face
