Good advice on skin and skincare
“Effect, effect, effect. Above all, a serum and a moisturizer duo should have an effect and produce noticeable, lasting results. That should be a given when you invest in skincare. Effect, skin pampering and the awareness that you're taking sustainable responsibility for both your body and the environment. Nothing less.”
The quote comes from Camilla Schjelderup, the very embodiment of Rudolph Care in Norway, and one of the most experienced women in Scandinavia when it comes to skincare advice.

Camilla always looks at things holistically – ahead of the more traditional talk about skin types or age: “I would rather talk about how your skin feels. The skin is the body’s largest organ – and it undergoes constant transformation throughout life. Seasons, lifestyle, illness, stress and much more all affect the skin. So take the time to look at yourself in the mirror and tell me if your skin feels tight, irritated, has dry patches, lacks radiance or anything else that can be part of the normal skin condition. And look at your work situation – do you sit in front of a computer all day? Do you spend a lot of time outdoors? This is the kind of chat you should have with your beauty advisor – or with us on rudolphcare.com – before you select your products.”
Caring for your skin shouldn’t be complicated, but a nice little moment of selfcare to look forward to at the end of a long day, says Camilla, and continues: “If you think your skin could be a little tighter, slightly fuller or have a bit more radiance, then a combination of serum and moisturizer can make a visible difference for you. Finally, give yourself plenty of time – and allow your serum to penetrate the skin before applying your face cream. It will be much more effective if you give the ingredients time to penetrate and do their work, and you’ll avoid the slightly greasy feel that can occur when the product has not completely melted into the skin”.
When it comes to getting the most out of your products, Camilla’s top tip is very simple: “Cleanse the skin gently and apply your skincare products to completely clean skin. You’ll see so much more effectiveness if you give yourself sufficient time and care at the sink and mirror. Five minutes each morning and evening can really be the best investment to achieving the skin you want”.
