8 ways to customize your skincare routine
Australian brand Dr. Roebuck’s has bespoke-serum bars that do the mixing for you, sending the vitamin-and hyaluronic-acid-infused serum base for a twirl in an on-site centrifuge—along with three to six handpicked actives whittled down from a possible 27 after you’ve filled out a questionnaire. “We ask questions like ‘What happens when you wake up?’ and ‘How do you feel at the end of the day?’ It’s our philosophy to look at skin holistically,” says co-founder Zoë Roebuck, who designed the algorithm that personalizes serums for up to 22 different skin-care concerns. (A serum bar will be popping up exclusively at Holt Renfrew’s Bloor Street location in Toronto throughout the year.)
