At Northern Girl, we like keeping things simple. Washing your face should be a source of joy, not a chore. We’re all looking to simplify our lives, and if we can find a way to steal 10 minutes of time back throughout the day, we’ll take it! Skin care is one of those things that can start to take far too much time. Before you know it, you’ve got a countertop full of products and you’re taking off one only to add another, and another, and another.
Skincare doesn’t need to be a complicated, ten-step process. We’ve put together a simple, all-natural 3-step routine for your morning and evening face care regime.
To start your day fresh faced use a gentle exfoliator like our Face Polish. Removing those excess skin cells will help bring out your natural glow. Depending on your skin type, you may need need to exfoliate every other day or just once a week. For days when you don’t exfoliate, you can use a gentle soap or milk cleanser (more on that later).
Give your skin a dose of hydration, antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients with our Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that can hold a large quantity of moisture. This substance keeps our skin hydrated and firm, however with time our skin starts producing less and less hyaluronic acid resulting in the loss of skin firmness and elasticity.
Always make time to moisturize! It’s oh-so-important to protect your skin for the day ahead. Our daily facial moisturizer is the perfect all rounder! It is a hydrating cream, that nourishes and softens skin through a beautiful blend of Apricot Seed, Sunflower and Jojoba Oils. If you have more mature skin or need more nourishment, try our Intensive Facial Moisturizer . It's the ultimate superhero for your face. Through a super blend of oils and butters including Rosehip, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Avocado oil, Kokum & Shea Butter!

Wash the day away and cleanse your skin with our rich Milk Cleanser or a light foaming facial wash.
The skin around your eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of your face, so it’s important to give it an extra dose of TLC with an eye cream. Our Calendula Eye Cream has a lavishly rich & creamy texture and has been specifically formulated to be light and fast absorbing. It includes mango butter and organic calendula oil which helps to soothe the delicate under eye skin and helps to reduce the look of puffiness and dark circles. If you feel the need, you can use your eye cream twice a day, but in the spirit of simplicity, we’ve included it in the evening routine.
Slather on that serum. Before bed is the perfect time to let a hydrating serum nourish your skin while you sleep. Think of it like vitamins for your skin. Our Superfood Face Serum is made with a good dose of antioxidant-packed oils, and is filled with crazy-intense concentrations of vitamins and nutrients.
