Forget your quadruple cleanse, seven serums and exfoliating three times a day – stripped back skincare regimes are on the rise. Whilst we love our vast collection of skincare products, sometimes less is more and dermatologist Dr Justine Hextall has called out complicated routines, saying ‘I see a lot of problem skin as a consequence of an over-zealous skincare regime’. So, it looks like it’s time to declutter our skincare routines and opt for products which are filled with gentle, multi-tasking, good quality ingredients.

The chic, trendy Scandi name that interlinks with this revolutionary way of thinking is ‘lagom’. We totally hear you asking, “What on Earth is lagom?’. Lagom is translated as ‘not too much, not too little’ and is all about balance, ease and simplicity. So, if like us you’re looking to add a little lagom to your skincare routine, here are the products guaranteed to simplify your skincare…
