Milja & Sensitive, breakout-prone skin

Milja & Sensitive, breakout-prone skin

Laponie was born out of our founder Kristina’s need to find products for her sensitive and challenging skin, and now our mission is to help you take care of your skin the right way. A while back we asked our customers to take part in a three-week-long Laponie test group, in which we created a customised and individual, daily skincare routine to tackle different skin issues and problems. This is Milja’s story about how she found help for sensitive and break-out prone skin using Laponie’s products.

Milja says: "At the start of the test period, my skin was sensitive, easily irritated and red, with quite a lot of pimples, especially around the mouth and on the chin. Sometimes my skin felt itchy, tight, and dry. In terms of impurities, it’s been very on/off for a long time, with short calm periods, but also several weeks with several breakout appearing in a day." 

"I was told to use the Milk Cleanser, for cleansing my face AM and PM.  After cleansing, I misted my face with the Balancing Essence and pplied the Calming serum on top while skin still had a bit of Essence on it. Finally, I applied the Face Cream. A couple of times a week I used the Hydrating Face Mask & Cream as a night cream."

After the trial period, Milja's skin felt calmer and well-hydrated. The tightening and itching disappeared very quickly, and the skin was generally more evenly colored and smoother. For  pimples and breakouts, Milja did not notice a big change, but felt that they didn’t appear as often as before the trial period and also healed a little faster.

Based on Milja's feedback, we decided to extend the test period for another three weeks. The routine was kept the same, but we changed the soothing Calming Serum to our purifying Clarifying Serum. 

"Very soon after switching serums, the appearance of pimples started to decrease, and now pimples do appear, but at a clearly slower pace and it’s just the odd one and not clusters. They also heal quite quickly, usually within one day a new fresh pimple will start to heal. I also noticed that my skin is really soft and feels good these days, there's really no need to worry about dry spots. The way I feel about my skin has improved tremendously and nowadays I don't constantly think and worry about the condition of my skin. When I look in the mirror after my skincare routine, I'm happy with my skin."
