Vogue Scandinavia hits up Patrik Lernberger and Mattias Stafsing – the co-founders behind beloved Swedish beauty brand Lernberger Stafsing – to decode the key steps for an overhaul of your spring skin routine

For most industries, a ‘quarterly’ update has more to do with fiscal plans and budgets than moisturisers and SPF, but in the Nordic beauty industry, it marks how often we need to overhaul our bathroom cabinets. Every three months or so, the weather demands an update to our seasonal skincare routines – and the time has come to switch from winter to spring.

When the weather thaws, beauty aficionados, co-founders and romantic partners Patrik Lernberger and Mattias Stafsing (the duo behind buzzy Swedish beauty brand Lernberger Stafsing) focus on boosting hydration. “We mainly focus on increasing the moisture level in the skin,” they say. This means adding more moisturising products to their respective routines, such as their brand’s cult S.O.S Barrier Cream.

Another essential step when overhauling your skin for spring is to exfoliate regularly to remove any dry and chapped skin. Here, Lernberger and Stafsing opt for both their Overnight Retinol + Mask. The Multi Correcting Cream with azelaic acid, which simultaneously soothes the skin and works on damage, offers light exfoliation and “is perfect to wear under your night cream.” Finally, the brand’s facial oil is a must in the evening. “We pair it with a gentle massage with the fingertips to moisturise and soften the skin, which is very relaxing and soothing.”

More than anything, the duo says that SPF is a “must, every day!” That's why they created their award-winning Sun Defence face Cream. “Forgetting sun protection is the most common mistake. The spring sun is treacherous, and you need SPF 50 even if it is cloudy,” the duo says. “Once the sun damage is done, it’s hard to turn back the clock, and there is nothing that stresses the skin like the sun.”
