When it comes to skincare routines not everyone has time for or even wants to do a routine with 10+ steps. Personally I really enjoy the process of a long skincare routine. However, having chronic illnesses there are certainly days when I don’t have the energy or I’m in too much pain to be able to do that. Yet I don’t want to compromise on looking after my skin. So, what better than a 3 step skincare routine that you can do instead?
So, if you want a really easy and quick routine let me introduce you to Ermana Natural Skincare and a quick and easy 3 step skincare routine using just 3 of their products.
About Ermana Natural Skincare
The brand came about because the founder and owner, Claire had problems with her own sensitive skin. Over time she learned that her skin reacted badly to things like preservatives and additives. She researched everything she could find about natural skin and body treatments.
Initially, she gifted the products she made to friends and family and she received great feedback from them. Her own skin also reacted really well with the products. This, in turn, prompted her to learn even more about natural ingredients and how they affect the skin. She also took the plunge and went back to college to study anatomy and physiology, aromatherapy and natural skincare.
Claire came up with the name ‘Ermana‘ as it is the Spanish word for sister and her sister, Nicola has been her biggest supporter, encouraging Claire every step of the way developing her own brand.
I hand blend all Ermana products in my kitchen and my mission is to provide natural, healthy skincare products for people who want to know exactly what they are putting on their body.Claire

Step 1 – Cleanse
The first and I’d say probably one of if not THE most important step is of course to cleanse your face. For that, we will be using the Ermana REFINE Cleansing Oil 100ml (rrp £24)with Grapefruit & Galbanum.
The REFINE Cleansing Oil cleanses really deep to remove all the day’s dirt, makeup etc from your skin. It leaves the skin feeling really clean and fresh with no tightness or dryness at all. it’s light and non-greasy, adding moisture to the skin.
If you have oily skin you are in luck as this product is particularly good for oily skin and acne. It won’t block your pores and the Lavender will help to balance and soothe the skin. Plus, it alleviates acne symptoms. Often people think if they have oily skin that they can’t use oils, which is totally not the case.
With a potent list of natural ingredients, including Galbanum which has been hailed as an oil that can give you an ‘organic facelift’, it also leaves the skin toned and rejuvenated, minimising the appearance of wrinkles.
How to Use
Simply add a few drops to your hands and gently massage into your skin taking extra care of the eye area. Then just remove with a warm muslin cloth, or just a warm cloth if you don’t have a muslin one.

Step 2 – Toner
For the second step in our 3 step skincare routine, we will be turning to the Ermana HYDRATE Organic Rose Water Mist 100ml (rrp £18). Now I absolutely love misting toners and I love rose in skincare, ergo I adore this HYDRATE Rose Water Mist! Plus, you can actually use it in three different ways, so BONUS!
This is such a lovely mist and of course, smells flipping amazing – just like Turkish Delight! Plus the scent of roses helps to relieve anxiety, so leaves you feeling more relaxed. Rosewater has quite a few beneficial properties
How to Use
As I mentioned, this misting toner can be used in three different ways. You can use it as a toner, as we have in this 3 step skincare routine. Or as a refreshing mist, you can use any time of the day to keep your skin cool and refreshed. The third way you can use it is to spray it on your pillows to help you sleep better.
- Refreshing and soothing
- Balances the ph of the skin
- reduce inflammation
- soothes acne, eczema and sunburn.
- helps hydrate, revitalise and moisturise
- reduce the visibility of broken capillaries.
- aids in healing scars, cuts and wounds.
- strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues
Step 3 – Facial Oil
The third and final step is to use a nourishing and hydrating facial oil. In this instance, we will use the Ermana RENEW Facial Oil 30ml (rrp £25). This is suitable for all skin types but is particularly suited to sensitive and mature skin.
Alternatively, you could use their REVIVE Facial Oil 30ml (£25 rrp) instead which is great for dehydrated and sensitive skin.
The RENEW Facial Oil is a really luxe blend of nourishing plant oils that are chock full of natural vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These ingredients all help to nourish and tone the skin, boost collagen. Leaving the skin hydrated and younger-looking.
This step is like a whole experience in itself as you’re not just applying the oil to your skin, you are inhaling the oil and therefore also benefiting from the therapeutic properties of the oil too.
I found this such a lovely oil to use and it smells so good too! It doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy at all or tacky. My skin just feels so soft, hydrated and smooth with that kind of bouncy feeling.
How To Use
If you are doing your skincare in the morning, use 2-3 drops. You can apply makeup straight after applying it in the morning if you need to. At night use 4-5 drops as there is more time for the oils to penetrate the skin at night.
Apply it to your fingertips and warm the oil in the palm of your hands. You can then inhale the warmed oil to benefit from the therapeutic properties of the oils. Obviously, this is optional but I highly recommend trying it if you never have before. Then you pat the warmed oil gently into your skin, don’t forget to use just your fingertips around the eye area. After this, you can gently massage upwards in light strokes.
- Neroli and ylang-ylang – help to tone the skin and relieve irritation.
