Her Skincare Journal

“I understand the frustration of trying countless skincare products that ultimately harm, rather than help, your skin. That’s why I prioritize consistent skincare routine, microbiome-friendly ingredients, and multitasking formulas for a truly healthy, radiant complexion.”

“My skincare routine is way simpler now, compared to a few years ago. I’ve learned that less is more and that consistency in use is key.”

 

hyd.: What’s your story with skincare and skincare routine?

Karolina: Like many of us, I used to rely on social media to guide my skincare routine. You can learn a lot on socials, but I have to admit that during that time I hated my skin the most. Looking back, it makes me sad. I think, that many of us can relate to those feelings. Constantly trying new products and going for high-concentration formulas to get quick results ended up damaging my skin barrier. I also have hormonal acne, which affects not only my skin but also my mental and social well-being. It’s a constant battle that requires a mature and thoughtful skincare routine.

That’s why I love using hyd. multitasking skincare products. They not only support my acne treatment but also promote a healthy skin barrier and balanced skin microbiome, making it easier to keep my face clear. Plus, their formulas are non-comedogenic and packed with ingredients that target other issues like wrinkles and dark spots at once.

Can you tell me more about your current skincare routine?

K: My skincare routine is way simpler now, compared to a few years ago. I’ve learned that less is more and that consistency in use is key.

 
MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

K: To keep my morning skincare routine simple I usually use just four products. Always starting with a gentle cleanser, I am currently using: Summer C face serum for a healthy, summery glow and to support my acne-prone skin thanks to Niacinamide. Then, I lather on That’s Calm, a trusty Hyaluronic Acid day cream that keeps my skin hydrated and soft. To finish off, I always make sure to apply SPF to protect my skin. I also use concealer and lip balm for a polished look. I like to add a touch of fragrance – currently Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540, Labo Santal 33 and my new discovery is a custom-made smell from Mo61.

 

NIGHT SKINCARE ROUTINE

K: At night, I start with a gentle cleanser at thee moment Glow Recipe Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser and use hyd. Pure Pure AHA BHA Cleanser as a face mask 1-2 times a week. I love Pure Pure for its ability to even out my skin tone. You can use this AHA/BHA cleanser without worrying about damaging my skin barrier and I know it protects my skin microbiome. Sometimes, I like to use Summer C Face Serum and Dieux Forever Eye Mask together for extra hydration and nourishment for my skin. It’s a great combo. On special occasions, I use Biologique Recherche Vivant Masque. I also use PCA Skin Intensive Clarity Treatment 0,5% Pure Retinol Night and always end the routine with Think Sleep – Peptide Night Cream for firmer and hydrated skin.

 

BODY SKINCARE ROUTINE

K: For my body, I use a Copper Body brush from Klapp and follow with a body balm for extra hydration. I’m currently loving Carea Cream from Soft Services and body cream Mojave Ghost from Byredo.

What’s your take on the latest skincare trends?

K: While we all used to love experimenting with new skincare trends like slugging or skin cycling routines, I think we have all become wiser and more informed about what our skin truly requires. We used to obsess over the highest concentration of ingredients like Retinol and Vitamin C, neglecting holistic treatments and formulas. In prioritizing skincare, I value science over trends as it offers proven results based on extensive testing and knowledge.

I currently appreciate skincare trends that focus on the skin barrier, skin microbiome, skinimalism, and multitasking products / skincare hybrids. I believe that consistent use of potent and multitasking formulas can produce excellent results while simplifying your skincare routine.

Do you have any extra tricks or techniques to keep your skin looking fab?

K: From time to time I treat myself to a nice facial, like the Hydrafacial, but I don’t do it too often to keep my budget at a good level. I like to visit Rescue Spa for an extra glow. I also know that diet plays a big role in the health of my skin, so I try to stick to mostly vegetables and fish, as well as fermented foods like sauerkraut and sour beets. These fermented foods are great for gut health and you can also find similar ingredients in hyd. skincare products like Lactobacillus Ferment and Oat Kernel Extract which balance the skin microbiome.
I know that sweets can cause breakouts for me, but I try to find a balance to keep my cravings happy. Dairy and wheat products are also avoided by me.I don’t do a lot of sports, but when I do sweat, I notice a positive difference in my skin. I love hot yoga, especially during the fall-winter season.

What does hyd. mean?

K: hyd. comes from hydration. hyd.rated skin is a key to achieving that healthy, glowing look we all want and look for. When skin is dehydrated, it can lead to a bunch of issues like wrinkles, dullness, and even acne. hyd.’s formulas, not only do they give your skin the hydration it needs, but they also help prevent water loss (TEWL), keeping your skin barrier strong and skin microbiome balanced. It’s pretty cool how our formulas are so multifunctional.


What makes multitasking skincare so special?

K: Keeping our skincare routine simple is always the goal, but as we get older, we want to address multiple concerns like wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven texture. The problem is, you often need multiple products for each issue, and using too many products or high concentrations of actives can harm your skin barrier and unbalanced skin microbiome. I understand the frustration of trying countless skincare products that ultimately harm, rather than help, your skin. That’s why I prioritize consistent skincare routine, microbiome-friendly ingredients, and multitasking formulas for a truly healthy, radiant complexion. That’s where hyd. comes in – our formulas are designed to target multiple issues at once, without compromising your skin barrier or microbiome.

I’m super excited that people are loving our products and are seeing real results. We wanted to create formulas that have scientific evidence to support their claims and deliver results you can trust.

We chatted about skincare, fragrances, and keeping makeup simple. How do you take care of your hair?

 

K: Although I haven’t had the best experiences with haircuts in the past, I’ve come to trust certain stylists. Tiffani Patchett is my go-to for cuts. I haven’t dyed my hair before, but I’ve been noticing some gray hair popping up. I kind of like it, but I’ve also been thinking about experimenting with a new color. If I do decide to change up my hair, I’ll definitely trust Emaly B from Beauty Supply to guide me through the process.
