I found it no surprise at all that in Switzerland, skincare is the priority and makeup is practical, modern and minimalist. Natural and clean products are at the heart of the minimal movement and simplified beauty routines and multi-functioning products meet the demands of Switzerland’s classic, chic and low maintenance driven vibe.
Since moving here only a few months ago, I’ve felt inspired to switch things up in my beauty routine…a little less makeup and a little more skincare. I’ve been lucky enough to spend the past few weekends up in St. Moritz, where I took in the crisp mountain air and channeled my inner athlete. The whole experience made me want to bring the invigorating freshness of the mountain air to my everyday regiment. The air in the Alps (and even here in Zurich) is just better — when you breathe you can really feel your lungs expand. The air is of course dryer here than it was in New York, so in adjusting my skincare routine, I have been trying to keep things extra hydrated. I have also become re-obsessed with oils — I’m talking essential oils to be more precise. If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories than you have seen how next level my oil addiction has become. It’s kinda out of control.
Ok…so in order to bring some of this alpine magic into my regular routine, I added these stellar products to my beauty line-up. And the results have been excellent. Whether you’re living in a chilly climate or simply want to add a little Swissness to your own skincare, here’s what I suggest trying out:
