5 tips for healthier skincare

We all wish for healthy, vibrant skin. When looking at ingredients, however, it can feel as if you need a degree in biochemistry to make sense of it all. What do you need, and what can be left on the shelf? We bring you five tips to help you make better skincare decisions.

1. Ceramides and useful fatty acids

Ceramides are like cement that holds together the body’s protective wall of skin cells. They are essential in maintaining your skin’s protective qualities and keeping moisture inside the body. Unfortunately, the amount of ceramides in our skin decreases with age. The amount of polyunsaturated fatty acids that give elasticity and mobility to ceramides also decreases. They are replaced by saturated fatty acids, causing stiffness of the skin.

How to get more high-quality ceramides with the help of skincare products? Ceramides are lipids (fats) and can be added to products in synthetic form, as plant extracts, or using high-ceramide vegetable oils. Here at LUMI, we prefer the latter method. Hemp oil contains several ceramides, omega-3, and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids that the human body cannot produce. We avoid excess energy consumption and over-processing raw materials while ensuring our products are efficient. Ceramides are great for addressing extremely sensitive, extremely dry, or atopic skin.

Most LUMI products have hemp oil in them.


2. Microbiota of balanced skin

Recent studies have shown that the millions of bacteria living on the surface of the skin play a vital role in skin health. The collection of microorganisms is the first line of defence against environmental damage to the skin. The balance of this ecosystem, involving active cooperation between our immune system and beneficial bacteria, is crucial for maintaining healthy and youthful skin. Numerous studies have found a direct link between an imbalanced bacterial ecosystem and skin issues.

How to keep the skin`s microbiota healthy and vital?

  1. Keep in mind, less is more! Maintain an optimal skincare regimen and avoid extremes. Avoid using too many different products, toxic ingredients, and extreme treatments like mechanical exfoliation. For example, do not mechanically exfoliate your skin!
  2. Use hermetically sealed cosmetics in pump bottles – they do not need strong preservatives.
  3. Avoid products that have fragrances and alcohol in them.


3. AHA-BHA acids and lactic acid

Lactic acid helps maintain hyaluronic acid levels in the body. It stimulates collagen and elastin, making skin more viable and firm. By gently exfoliating the aged surface layer of our skin, lactic acid promotes skin renewal and a more even skin tone. Lactic acid helps to maintain the correct, slightly acidic pH level, which is necessary for a balanced skin ecosystem.

Be careful with AHA-BHA acids! Excessive AHA-BHA exfoliation can damage the skin barrier rather than balancing your skin. It is also vital that AHA-BHA acids are applied to the skin alongside lipids. All LUMI products are formulated with mild amounts of AHA-BHA and include beneficial omega fatty acids.


4. Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid binds water to the skin, providing moisture and elasticity. When hyaluronic acid is mixed with water in a laboratory, the resulting substance has a gel-like, springy consistency. Children’s skin is also flexible and elastic. Unfortunately, as people get older, hyaluronic acid levels decrease, skin dries out, and forms wrinkles. Thankfully, it’s possible to increase levels of hyaluronic acid in the body through skin care, provided the molecules used are of the correct size.

At LUMI, we use various sizes of hyaluronic acid molecules to ensure deep and extensive hydration of the skin’s different layers. We use post-biotic hyaluronic acid produced as a result of bacterial life activity. This vital ingredient is included in all our products for hands, body and face.


5. Antioxidants

Antioxidants neutralise free radicals in the body’s tissues. Normal body processes produce free radicals, and some perform vital signalling functions. However, environmental factors such as solar radiation, pollution and stress can intensify the production of free radicals.

Free radicals are like solitary particles that circulate through tissues and seek bonds. These particles can bond with vital molecules, such as DNA or collagen (which gives elasticity to the skin), causing them to break down. Fortunately, our bodies have a pretty effective system that uses antioxidants to control the entire process.

It is recommended to get additional antioxidants through food and skincare. Vitamins A, C, and E are all effective antioxidants; none is favoured over the others. A combination of these works best in skincare.

Body and hands

The season of dry and fragile skin is here – indoor air is dry and outdoor conditions are harsh. Moisturizers protect the skin from environmental factors by strengthening the skin barrier. Your body and hands need creams and treatments according to your skin type, just as your face does. Unfortunately, choosing the right cream can be challenging – there are numerous lotions and creams available today, and some of them have ingredients that are difficult to understand.

LUMI moisturizers have been developed in cooperation with Tallinn University of Technology and the University of Tartu.

Our moisturizers are based on Estonian 100% organic hemp seed oil and they do not contain synthetic fragrances, silicone oils, petroleum products, or preservatives. Hemp oil can moisturize perfectly, and so can LUMI creams!

We will help you learn about the differences between LUMI creams, lotions, and oils. Choose your favourite body moisturizer for the season according to your skin type – it is easy!

For the body

BIO-KLINIK soothing and moisturizing body cream

BIO-KLINIK moisture-lock body cream will hydrate your body for up to 48 hours. The cream calms your skin, helps to regenerate tissues, and protects against irritations. The cream is suitable for atopic, dry, itchy, scaly, reddish, and extremely sensitive skin. Problematic skin with dermatitis and other skin issues will love this cream as well.

Nourishing body oil

Our best-selling and award-winning revitalizing body oil was one of our very first products. It includes hemp seed oil and urea, which helps the oil to absorb. Essential oils activate lymphatic circulation and are excellent for tightening facial skin. Use the oil after a shower or mix a few pumps of it into your bath water and enjoy the softness of your healthy skin.

Revitalizing body lotion

LUMI deeply moisturizing body treatment targets skin issues systemically, entering different layers of the skin. Camellia oil and hyaluronic acid can penetrate deep – they add elasticity to the skin and keep it hydrated with the help of Peucedanum Ostruthium and lactic acid. Hemp seed oil improves the skin’s natural protective barrier and prevents dehydration. Shea butter creates a protective layer on the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis.

The lotion is suitable for sensitive skin. Absorbs fast, hydrates for a very long period, and makes the skin silky. This body lotion is perfect for dry and very sensitive skin.

Trimming and toning body moisturizer SENSES

Are you searching for a firming, smoothing, and moisturizing body lotion? Here it is! SENSES remodelling body moisturizer is inspired by scientific research. The lotion will tone, trim, and hydrate your skin while essential oil aromatherapy drives your senses wild! Bioactive ingredients improve the orange peel texture of the skin, and clay evens your skin tone. Suitable for all skin types. Do not use this lotion if you are pregnant or breastfeeding – in this case, choose LUMI products that do not contain essential oils.


Hand creams

Pay attention to skincare, especially in harsh weather conditions. High-quality creams will keep your hands soft and healthy. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and other skin-repairing agents.

Arctic hand cream

The fragrance-free Arctic hand cream protects extremely dry, reddened, damaged, and scaly skin from harsh weather conditions. Beeswax prevents moisture loss by creating a water-repellent protective layer. Vegetable oils and plant extracts deeply hydrate and nourish the skin, the hyaluronic acid moisturizes and gives elasticity.

The magic wand called HEMP

What is CBD?

CBD is an increasingly popular natural alternative for relieving a number of physical and mental health problems. However, there is a lot of confusion regarding CBD because the substance is said to have side effects and power to alter state of consciousness similar to marijuana. The hemp plant really contains more than 100 different natural substances known as cannabinoids, including CBD. Unlike other cannabinoids like THC, CBD does not have a narcotic effect. CBD is not psychoactive and is not classified as a narcotic. THC is illegal in many countries and is mostly used for recreational porposes, but CBD is valued for its medicinal and therapeutic effects.

CBD affects each person differently, according to the individual state of body and mind.

CBD helps identify weak links and health problems in the body and resolve them through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biological system similar to the immune system that plays a major role in controlling many vital processes, such as the functioning of the nervous system and metabolism. Unlike drugs, where one specific drug is created for each health problem, the endocannabinoid system works like the immune system, finding the problem that needs treatment and trying to “repair” it with the body’s own resources. Scientific studies have already demonstrated the benefits of CBD on a variety of conditions, including inflammation, sleep disorders, anxiety, joint issues, seizures, and weight problems. The list is long and keeps expanding as a result of new studies.

External magic wand to treat skin issues

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and forms an important part of the endocannabinoid system. Similar to receptors in the brain or digestive system, thousands of small receptors in the skin can bind to CBD and be responsive to its therapeutic value. This means that when applied to the skin, cosmetics containing CBD target the primary issue with a particular skin type and encourage the production of new, healthy skin cells to address the issue. CBD skincare products have helped people all over the world in restoring healthy skin, whether they were suffering from acne, pigment spots, scars, or micro-tears from dryness.

LUMI hemp seed oil based products work on the same principle. The ideal ratio of omega fatty acids for the skin is found in cold-pressed hemp seed oil, and also a number of beneficial vitamins, phytosterols, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. In order to guarantee the highest quality of active substances, LUMI works with local Estonian organic hemp farmers. The creams are prepared just after the oil is extracted from the seeds, ensuring that the products are as fresh and effective as possible.

Hemp oil helps to reduce many different skin problems, especially those related to excessive dryness of the skin and an imbalance of the microbiome – such as dermatitis or acne. For skin inflammations that require special attention, the LUMI selection also includes a CBD+ product line. We use the highest quality full-spectrum CBD extract, which has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, immediately helps with itching, soothes and stimulates the skin to renew itself over time. The organism naturally accepts CBD extract since it is natural to the human body. This explains the remarkable performance in complex problems as well. Additionally, the CBD+ products assist in the early prevention of skin issues. The saturation of high-quality active ingredients in the extract prevents the development of early aging symptoms like wrinkles, dull complexion, and rough, dry skin.

How to slow down aging with lifestyle choices and bioactive elements? Let’s take a look at the skin’s aging processes.

Can we slow our skin’s aging process?

How does Jennifer Lopez look so youthful at 52? Why is the skin of your older schoolmate smooth and free of wrinkles, while your forehead has deep lines already? What exactly do they know that you don’t? What is their secret to staying young? Is it an anti-aging cream, collagen, vitamin C, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, cosmetic injections, a specific diet, or even magic?

We shouldn’t fear or be ashamed of getting older. Aging is a natural part of life – often men and women are much happier with themselves after 40, much more than they were at the age of 20. Whatever your age, true beauty is your warm and caring character that lights up the world like a lighthouse.

For your youthful and charming inner beauty to shine through your skin, you should know how to live a life that slows aging. We’ve made a list of all the questions about aging that our customers and friends have asked us. We hope you find it helpful!

Why does our skin age?

Internal and external factors both influence skin aging. Internal causes are like a ticking clock in each of us. The pace of it is in our DNA. Genes are one of the reasons why some people still look amazing as they get older. The good news is that you can control the external factors that affect up to 40% of your aging processes! By knowing the factors that accelerate aging, you can make smart choices and enjoy looking youthful for longer.

Does tanning cause wrinkles?

Suppose you enjoy frying in the sun for a chocolate tan. You should know sunbathing has negative side effects: premature wrinkles, sagging skin, skin formations, and pigment spots. A dark complexion indicates skin damage and is often mistaken for beauty. Unless you plan long tanning sessions, daily cream with a sun protection factor is optional in Estonia. Many LUMI creams have light natural sun protection, which is sufficient.

Many forget that squinting in bright sun can cause wrinkles around the eyes. The eyelids are vulnerable because they have the thinnest and most delicate skin. Equip yourself with proper sunglasses to prevent those wrinkles.

Does computer screen time cause wrinkles?

The blue light emitted from the phone or computer screen can be stressful to the body in the evenings, and constant stress activates premature aging. Blue light also harms your eyesight. Indeed, crow`s feet, or wrinkles around the eyes, form and deepen by squinting in front of the computer screen for a long time.

Wear blue light glasses and take breaks when using a computer. Look at different objects near and far, make eye circles, and look up, down, left, and right during breaks. It is also helpful to close your eyes to take a break.

Does sleep deprivation cause wrinkles?

Chronic insomnia has been linked to several health issues, including obesity, diabetes, cancer, and immune system disorders. A clinical study in the United States has shown that insomnia causes the skin to age faster.

When it comes to beauty sleep, Hollywood celebs aren’t joking. At the very least, you should give yourself at least 7 hours of good-quality sleep. Sleep also reduces nervousness and mental stress, which in turn has a good effect on physical health.

Try sleeping on your back – this will save your face and décolleté from rubbing up against the pillow. If you tend to sleep on your side, do yourself a favour and choose pillowcases made of natural silk. They spare the skin, reduce the effect of the morning pillow face, and keep the hair from breaking and tangling.

Does stress cause wrinkles?

Constant stress makes the body produce stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline, which leads to premature aging, osteoporosis, and the loosening of facial skin. Find the right outlets for stress relief. Exercise is one of the most effective ways. Physical activity rejuvenates the body and mind.

Does smoking cause wrinkles?

If you smoke a pack of cigarettes every day for 25 years, you will have up to 5 times more wrinkles than a non-smoker. The smoker’s skin becomes dull, loose, and wrinkled much faster because less blood flows to the capillaries, and the crucial compounds do not reach the skin. Smoking leads to a shortage of vitamin C. Smoking also breaks down collagen and elastin, which are directly responsible for wrinkle-free skin. Your skin will recover to some extent if you stop smoking. The sooner you quit, the better your skin will recover!

Does food and drink impact how your skin ages?

Food is to your body like fuel to a car. You won’t get very far if you refuel a diesel car with gasoline. Everyone knows the best refuelling options for the human body. Foods with a high glycemic index (like white flour pastries) cause inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked to aging. Fructose in agave syrup (considered healthy) breaks down collagen and does it faster than sugar. But collagen keeps our skin wrinkle-free. So if you want to look youthful and healthy for longer, avoid the following villains:

  • white sugar
  • fructose
  • white flour products
  • deep-fried foods
  • processed foods
  • sausages and other processed meat products
  • artificial additives and preservatives
  • margarine
  • milk products
  • sweet soft drinks
  • coffee
  • alcohol
  • narcotics

Does the skin age faster when you live in an urban area?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes. According to research, air pollution from heavy traffic speeds up the development of aging symptoms. Your facial skin can have up to 20% more pigment spots than people who live in an environment with cleaner air. If relocating is not an option, you can protect your skin with a special cream with DNA protection. Find more information below.

Does a face massage make you look younger?

Face massage is a rising trend, and it works! You can do it yourself at home. It does wonders and costs nothing! When we train our bodies, we forget that the face has muscles too. We can achieve excellent results with regular exercise. Loose facial skin, bags under the eyes, wrinkles, and a double chin – facial exercises bring results. 

How to choose an anti-wrinkle cream?

Each person is unique. Choose a cream according to your skin type. There is no facial skin standard for 25- and 50-year-olds. This is why age-specific creams do not exist. Every person is amazingly one-of-a-kind and unique.

LUMI’s anti-wrinkle creams meet the needs of every skin type. Just read the description of the product and find what your skin needs. We also offer a personalized consultation through our Facebook page if you have difficulties deciding.

When to start using anti-wrinkle creams?

The aging of the skin begins when your childish soft face transforms into a more mature and well-shaped teenage face with more apparent outlines. How you take care of your skin before age 20 has a significant role in the condition of your facial skin when you get older.

Jennifer Lopez started moisturising her facial skin with her mother’s creams as a schoolgirl. Moisturising cream with bioactive substances that support skin`s elasticity is a good anti-wrinkle cream.

According to dermatologists, it is recommended to start using an anti-wrinkle cream at an average age of 25, especially in harsh cool climates, where cold winds and drying central heating can be damaging to the skin.

What is LUMI’s secret weapon against aging and wrinkles?

Plantains! Do you remember your childhood, the modest-looking herb you put on your scraped knee? Plantain activates the synthesis of collagen molecules and speeds up the wound healing process, it is scientifically proven. We use this valuable bioactive collagen-creating plantain extract in our anti-wrinkle creams.

How to choose the best anti-wrinkle cream for your skin?

The best anti-wrinkle cream has bioactive substances that stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid molecules in your skin. Low levels of these cause wrinkles and sagging skin.

Many substances stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin. The best anti-wrinkle cream should contain something from the following list:

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Plantain
  • Antioxidants
  • Hemp oil
  • CBD
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Lactic acid
  • Amino acids

Many are unaware that anti-wrinkle creams that contain collagen directly do not perform as they should. Collagen molecules are too large to pass through the skin and don’t absorb.

Retinol is another common ingredient in anti-wrinkle creams. LUMI uses vitamin C ester instead of retinol, which is just as effective as retinol but is also suitable for sensitive skin.

What kind of anti-aging products does LUMI offer?

LUMI’s natural anti-aging products have been developed in collaboration with nature and researchers from the University of Tartu to meet the needs of all skin types in the Nordic climate. You can safely use LUMI’s natural cosmetics from Estonia for allergic and sensitive skin.

Collagen-stimulating protective cream for aging skin

This anti-wrinkle cream is one of the bestsellers. The amazing natural moisturising cream contains a high concentration of anti-aging ingredients. It is ideal if you have already noticed symptoms of aging on your face and your skin needs serious help. The natural anti-wrinkle cream activates collagen production, smooths out wrinkles, and makes aging skin radiant. Like all other LUMI face creams, it’s ideal to use as an eye cream.

Regenerating night cream

This anti-wrinkle cream is rich, nourishing, deeply hydrating, regenerative, and mildly exfoliating. Helpful to those who are annoyed by acne and pimples. A unique natural anti-wrinkle cream with royal jelly for those who want silky, beautiful, and pleased skin. Like all of LUMI’s amazing face creams, it is also an eye cream.

NAKED hyaluronic acid multi serum

Deeply moisturising, anti-aging, skin rejuvenating, and wrinkle smoothing serum is Estonia’s first prebiotic hyaluronic acid serum! Made for you to be naturally beautiful.

Skincare basics for men

Meet LUMI MEN skincare products, a true power of nature with masculine freshness! Be sure to let your gentlemen know about it!

Traditionally, all LUMI products are UNISEX, designed for men and women. #lumiexperience 

Let’s go over the specifics of men’s skincare and offer recommendations from LUMI’s skin experts. You will find out the following:

  • What to consider when cleansing your skin and shaving.
  • How to choose a moisturizer.
  • How to treat ingrown hairs.

Understanding male skin

There is a strong connection between skin health and general health. The skin is the largest human organ, and it protects us from the harmful effects of the environment, such as UV radiation, pathogens, and chemicals. The skin’s functions are similar, regardless of gender. Still, gender, individual habits, and skin condition are important when choosing the best skincare routine.

  • Men’s skin is 20% thicker than women’s, and it does not loosen so quickly with age and is usually less sensitive.
  • The average man shaves 16,000 times in his life.
  • Shaving and using products containing alcohol cause dry skin, irritation, and premature aging. 
  • Dry skin can also lead to skin inflammations or eczema.
  • Men have more active sebaceous glands, and sebum production is more intense until the age of 50 because of testosterone. Sebum protects the skin from aging but can also cause problems with acne and pimples.
  • Skincare is different: men usually pay little attention to skincare. Middle-aged men may notice that skin produces less sebum (helps moisturize and protect the skin), and skin gets older and thinner. If you look at middle-aged couples, it is usually obvious whether they both use face creams or the man does not.


How to get started with a skincare routine as a man?

Cleaning your face should not leave you feeling dry. The complexion should be clear but not feel tight. Look for products with hydrating ingredients like vegetable oils or hyaluronic acid and exfoliating agents like lactic acid. Cleansing your face should remove dead skin cells to avoid clogged pores. Dead skin cells are like lids on the pores. And it causes pimples, comedones (blackheads), and ingrown hairs.

Depending on the skin type, we recommend moisturising cleansing milk for dry, normal, or combination skin. Or Tundra AHA-BHA cleansing milkfor problematic, acne-prone skin, inflamed skin, and skin with ingrown hairs.

Using cleansing milk is simple, quick, and convenient, similar to liquid soap. Press a few pumps of the product on your hands, then massage the milk on your face and rinse with lukewarm water. Although cleaning your face twice a day is ideal, you can use it only in the evenings too.

To prevent skin problems, use LUMI cleansing milk as a deep cleansing mask keeping it on your face for 5 minutes once or twice a week.


It is possible to shave without irritating the skin!

Remember, shave after cleansing your face because warm water and cleansing milk soften the skin and make shaving gentler.

Too hot shaving water can cause irritation, redness, and dryness. Shave in the direction of hair growth to prevent ingrown hair.

If shaving in the opposite direction is unavoidable, do so as slowly and gently as possible. Remember to rinse the razor well and replace the blade regularly. Shaving with a shaver or trimming a three-day beard can also irritate your skin, so keep in mind these guidelines.

Why prefer an alcohol-free aftershave?

For decades, men have been taught to use a cologne after shaving. It contains perfume, alcohol, and other harmful ingredients that irritate the skin and cause dryness and make the skin lose its natural balance. If you are using aftershave, we recommend TUNDRA Yarrow mist with salicylic acid and Aftershave toner for MEN, which are both natural, anti-inflammatory, and non-irritating, and will keep your skin healthy and complexion clear.


MEN aftershave toner

Here it is – the ONE multifunctional skincare product for every man’s bathroom! The golden trio of mint, juniper, and hemp. This combination says goodbye to itching, tingling, and redness and welcomes irritation-free moisturized skin.

Should you use an aftershave toner?

Dry, rough skin is not a sign of masculinity – this skin condition worsens over time. Fortunately, it is easy to improve this condition! LUMI MEN aftershave toner helps to restore the skin’s youthfulness and masculine strength.

The high-quality ingredients prevent skin irritation caused by shaving.

  • The antibacterial MINT cools down, refreshes, and gives energy. Relieves itching after shaving and is suitable for taking care of skin prone to acne. 
  • Cleansing JUNIPER helps to regenerate the skin and reduce sebum. Promotes skin microcirculation and helps prevent swelling and bags under the eyes. 
  • Pore-shrinking HEMP hydrosol moisturizes the skin and reduces irritation.
  • PRO-VITAMIN B5 cools down reddened skin.
  • BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS bind moisture and fight dryness.
  • PREBIOTICS and a suitable pH level create a hostile environment for bacteria growth on the skin. 
  • RED ALGAE cleanses and moisturizes while strengthening the skin’s protective barrier.

The versatile toner is easy to use.

Create your daily skincare routine as you like. 

  1. Use the toner as a moisturizer after shaving.
  2. Use the toner as a refresher to replace a face cream (in the morning and evening).
  3. Offer extra nourishment to your skin cells by continuing the treatment with the MEN moisturizing cream.

Men need creams as well!

Shaving (with a razor or a shaving machine) irritates the skin. Use a face cream suitable for your skin type. In addition to hydrating, moisturizing cream acts as a tissue softener and helps to prevent ingrown hair.

For normal skin type, we recommend day cream with antioxidants – it absorbs fast but moisturizes efficiently and has a mattifying effect thanks to natural cellulose.

If your skin is dry or sensitive, we recommend using a deep moisturizing multiplant face cream once or twice a day. The patented hydration complex moisturizes for a long time, panthenol calms, and hemp seed oil is restorative, supplying essential nutrients and vitamins.

We recommend Tundra AHA-BHA moisturizing cream for problematic skin with inflammations and acne. Its anti-acne complex regulates sebum production, while natural AHA and BHA acids, and linoleic acid, prevent clogging.


MEN Moisturizing Cream

This light cream does not clog pores. It moisturizes and smoothes deeply, does not irritate, and does not make the skin feel heavy. The cream is rich in nutrients. Get a boost of vitality from hemp oil, cannabinoids, and algae. It is gentle but strong – like a real man!

The multifunctional cream has the following qualities: 

  • refreshing
  • soothing
  • moisturizing
  • tightening
  • balancing

The high-quality ingredients include:

  • Balanced AHA acids remove dead skin cells without irritation and make skin look more youthful.
  • Prebiotics create a suitable pH level for the skin and an unsuitable environment for the growth of harmful bacteria.
  • Hemp oil and cannabinoids control sebum production, soothe irritations and stimulate the recovery of the skin’s protective layer.
  • Proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants in red algae keep the skin nourished and moisturized. Helps to protect against UV radiation and slows down the formation of wrinkles.
  • PGA and hyaluronic acid are a match made in heaven. They hydrate all layers of the skin.

With regular use:

  • Balances skin microflora.
  • Hydrates the skin and smoothes the complexion.
  • Makes the skin more elastic and softer.

How to use the cream?

The moisturizer is suitable for all skin types. And it can be used in the mornings and evenings, as you like. Just pump a small handful of cream and enjoy the instant freshness – perfect for using after LUMI MEN aftershave.

Reminder for men

Dry skin is a common problem in our Nordic climate. Particularly during the winter heating season. What can you do to feel good in your own skin?

Hydrate your skin with natural oil or cream after washing it. Remember that excessive washing and strong washing detergents irritate and dry your skin. We recommend adding a drop of universal body oil to your shower gel to help protect and restore the skin.

Important to remember

LUMI products are unique – natural, fresh, and minimally processed, so please protect them from direct sunlight. The products remain best for your skin for up to three months after opening. If you take a break from use, store the product in a fridge to slightly extend the shelf life. The fresher, the better!

Let’s do good together and protect the environment! Read our recycling ♻️ guide HERE and take the empty packaging to a collection container for recycling.

MYTH: Skin with acne and pimples does not need moisturising. Vegetable oils cause comedones

REALITY: Increased sebum production is a prerequisite for acne. Keeping your skin moisturised is very important because dry skin produces more sebum. According to scientific studies, dry skin is more sensitive to allergens, and lack of hydration can cause different skin problems. We use cold-pressed hemp oil in our products – it is an excellent moisturiser for problematic skin and does not clog pores. Studies show that linoleic acid in hemp oil has a role in addressing the causes of acne.

TIP! Apply AHA-BHA moisturising cream after using Yarrow mist with salicylic acid. If your skin feels “heavy” after using the product, try applying less next time. Or let it absorb for a few minutes before using Yarrow mist again.

MYTH: Dirty skin causes acne

REALITY: Research shows that acne is not caused by unclean skin. The process of developing symptoms is much more complicated and it is necessary to use gentle cleansers twice a day to prevent acne. Use mildly exfoliating and anti-inflammatory products that decrease sebum production and have a slightly acidic pH (not more than 5.5). Forget grainy face scrubs and excessive washing – these can cause skin barrier disorders and dehydration.

TIP! Clean your skin with Tundra AHA-BHA cleansing milk and finish with Yarrow mist with salicylic acid. Use them twice a day. Do not forget facial water – it removes impurities and maintains pH balance. Tundra AHA-BHA cleansing milk can be used as a facial mask for a few minutes. Don’t be alarmed – mild and short-term redness is a normal reaction. Listen to your skin – you can reduce the duration, frequency, and amount of the product if you are worried about redness.

7 Important Things to Know about Sunbathing and Sun Protection

We all know tanning can cause skin ageing and skin cancer. Although it is important to avoid excessive UV radiation, sunlight positively affects the body’s resilience, and synthesis of vitamin D. Sunlight also boosts our mood by raising endorphin levels. Pay attention to how much you spend in the sun and protect yourself. Three types of UV radiation are classified according to their wavelength: UVA, UVB, and UVC. The ozone layer protects us from UVC radiation. Medium-wavelength UVB is filtered by the atmosphere – although a small percentage does reach the Earth’s surface. Long-wave UVA radiation is not absorbed by the ozone layer.  UVA radiation intensity does not depend on the season or time of day; UVA can penetrate windows. UVB rays are most intense at midday and closer to the equator, where the path through the ozone layer is the shortest. That is why maintaining the ozone layer is so important.
