"A person who follows an unvarying routine."
"The range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance and relieve skin conditions."
"The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own wellbeing and happiness."
None of these ideas are complicated, so why are we made to feel that they are?
Skincare should be easy, enjoyable and fulfilling. It’s the process of looking after your own skin.
The beauty industry and the products on offer seem to become more complex by the day. We’re bombarded with recommendations, advertising, buzzwords and trends that make it impossible to work out what you should be doing and using.
We want to change that.
Creature of Habit exists for people, of all skin types and tones, to develop a simple, easy-to-follow skincare routine that gives results.
Taking care of your skin shouldn’t feel like a chore that’s been designed to overwhelm and confuse. It should be something that you enjoy, that fits into your lifestyle and self-care routine.
It’s time to simplify your skincare routine and become a Creature of Habit.
Creature of Habit was born from a desire to scale back and simplify the 10-step skincare routine that’s become the norm. Your skin doesn’t need it, and neither does your stress levels.
We see skincare as being about balance – there are days where you need quick and effective solutions. Then there are those days (or nights) where you want to slow down and be mindful and considered with your skincare.
At those times, it’s about enjoying the ritual and connection to your skin. That’s just as important as the other stuff.
Meet our founder, Jaina
“After years of buying pretty much every product going, I often found myself feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information and ‘must have’ products out there. I stopped enjoying skincare as a result.
I wanted to take a step back and slow it down, reconnect with my skin and get back to basics. I visited a dermatologist after experiencing mild acne and was prescribed medication for my skin, which came with a simplified routine alongside.
The medication helped me but left my skin very dry and sensitive. From then on I considered what I put onto my skin a lot more. Over time, I became pleasantly surprised to see how much better my skin looked and felt with this simpler routine.
I also felt the benefits in my own lifestyle and wellbeing. I was starting to enjoy skincare again.
I trained with an accredited school of Organic Cosmetic Science to further my knowledge of natural skincare and gained a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. This, coupled with my background in Chemical Engineering, enabled me to build Creature of Habit as it is today.
We only have one life, one body and one skin – it’s really important to enjoy the ritual of taking care of it. Creature of Habit has been created to help you to do just that.”
