We’re all for discovering new skincare products, especially if they’re formulated with all-natural and organic ingredients. Newly launched at online store The Nordic Glow, Finnish brand Hetkinen is a bodycare and cosmetics line that’s free of parabens, artificial scents, colours, mineral oils and polyethylenes. Each product is made with plant-based ingredients like essential oils and vegetable fats, then packaged in a beautiful anti-bacterial heartwood jar.
Our top pick? This aluminium- and alcohol-free cream deodorant with a fresh woody scent. thenordicglow.com

Shower time just got a whole lot better with Lush Cosmetics’ new shower bombs ($7), an evolution from the brand’s cult-favourite bath bombs. They’re formulated with luxurious essential oils for a spa-like experience, as well as seaweed and starches to create a silky-soft touch. sg.lush.com

We ask Beauty Confidential author TOMOKA Y NGUYEN, who has over 20 years of experience in the spa and wellness industry, for tips on creating a home spa.
#1 Set aside alone time “Make sure you switch off your phone. The room chosen for the spa experience should have good air circulation and some natural light.”
#2 Set your intention “Think of what you wish to achieve from the experience. Is it relaxation, detoxification, or pain relief?”
#3 Select suitable products “Incorporate a bath routine with herbs, bath salts and essential oils. Candles, music and tea can help to transform a mundane space into a home spa. Using good quality, natural ingredients has a profound effect on both the body and mind.”
