Anna Katrine shares her “Hygge” wellness tips and beauty routine


What is the first thing you do in the morning?

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is make a cup of coffee or tea to slowly wake up my body. I also open the windows (even in winter) to get in some fresh air (my boyfriend doesn’t love that…)!

Do you have any particular eating habits or diet?

I don’t like diets. I don’t think it’s good for you to focus too much on food. I eat what I want and what I think is good for my body. A lot of healthy food, and in that way, I also have space for the sweet stuff when I crave it! I would never deny myself any food.

Are you addicted to sport and exercise?

I love sports and I try to work out almost every day. Not because it’s something I have to do, but because it makes me feel good and it clears my mind. I love doing hot yoga at the moment, followed by a long shower with time to apply my True North body lotion. It is good for the mind as well as for the body.

Do you have a well-being ritual?

I love to watch movies and I also read a lot of books. If I really need to relax and feel good, I will make myself a big cup of tea and read a book or watch a movie. After that you can only feel good!


What is your skincare routine?

I wash my skin every morning only with water, and in the evening I normally use cleansing milk. My skin is not really complicated and doesn’t need much. But of course, it needs moist; so every morning and every evening I put on my face a cream called ‘De-stressed’ from True North. I love it because it is not too heavy on the skin and absorbs quickly!

What is your current beauty obsession?

My Scandinavian skin is pretty sensitive to the sun, so in the summertime I use sunscreen every day, but until now I have found it difficult to protect my lips. Now, however, I’ve discovered the protective lip balm from True North and it has saved my life (lips)!

What is your make-up look?

Actually, I don’t really wear make-up unless I am going out. And then it will only be mascara and maybe concealer. I will always go for the natural look!

What are your essential beauty products?

The essential beauty products for me are my day cream from True North, a sunscreen and the protective lip balm from True North. In that way, I can keep my face natural, healthy and fresh and really, I don’t need much more.


Where would be your ideal place to disconnect from the world?

In my aunt’s house in Tuscany, there’s no Internet connection, just nature. Oh, and a swimming pool!

What is your favourite restaurant?

I recently discovered the Ramen dish, so at the moment I really like the place ‘Papa Ramen’ just nearby my place in Copenhagen. Other than that I really really love Italian food!

Where would you buy a gift?

I love to buy books, but recently I also gave my mom a cream from True North, and she loved it! I like to give people gifts that can make them relax or feel good in some way. Or anything that refers to the Danish ’Hygge’!
