4 ways to use our Facial Oil

Tip no. 1

Incorporate it into your skincare routine

After cleansing, apply serum and moisturiser to your skin, then add a few drops of Nordic Bloom [Lumo] Berry Pre-Retinol Facial Oil. Pat the oil onto your skin in the morning before applying sunscreen.

You can also use the facial oil only in the evenings if it suits your routine better. Dispense the oil onto your hand using a dropper, not directly onto your face. This prevents bacteria from coming into contact with the bottle. Applying the oil with your hands also makes it easier to control the amount used.

Tip no. 2

Enhance your skincare

You can also mix this facial oil with your day or night cream for even more nourishing skincare. Take some cream in your palm, add 1–2 drops of oil, and mix with your fingers. Apply this extra-nourishing blend to your cleansed face and neck.

The facial oil contains a pre-retinol compound derived from Nordic berries (a gentle alternative to retinol) which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving skin tone and texture.

Tip no. 3

Illuminate your makeup

If your skin is dry, you can use the facial oil to ensure a radiant makeup look. Apply a drop or two of oil to your skin, especially on your cheekbones, just before applying foundation, or mix a drop of oil into your foundation on the back of your hand and then apply it to your face. The oil adds a beautiful glow to your skin, making it look nourished and even-toned.

The facial oil contains squalane, a lightweight moisturising oil. It hydrates your skin and helps maintain its firmness and elasticity, while also enhancing your natural glow.

Tip no. 4

Pamper with a massage

The texture of Berry Pre-Retinol Facial Oil is also suitable for facial massage; treat yourself to a delightful morning or evening routine. You can use gua sha tools, spoons, rollers, facial cups, or simply use your hands to massage. Start with a couple of drops and add more oil as needed. The oil reduces friction on the skin's surface, making the tools or fingers glide more smoothly - enhancing the massage experience. Whilst at the same time, the nourishing oil is absorbed into the skin.

The facial oil also contains Nordic lingonberry seed oil (rich in omega-3 fatty acid, plant sterols and antioxidants) which helps balance skin moisture and even out skin tone.

Did you know?

LUMENE's pre-retinol compound from Nordic berries includes sea buckthorn oil and cloudberry seed oil, rich in β-carotene. Studies show that β-carotene converts into retinyl esters in the outermost skin layer, the epidermis, providing effects similar to retinol. LUMENE's unique compound contains three times more β-carotene than carrots.
