Top Skincare Tips from the Apothecary Team

Our Team Shares Their Number One Tips For Caring For Your Skin

We asked a few of our team members for their favourite skincare tips and here they are!

Emilie, Digital Marketing Strategist

"Don’t skimp on sunscreen! It’s the best way to prevent wrinkles and fine lines as you age, and it also helps prevent acne and flair ups. When you apply, make sure you are also covering your neck, chest and hands. Try to look for a light facial sunscreen that uses all-natural, non-toxic ingredients— the EWG has a great guide to non-toxic sunscreen here:

Sage, Store Manager

"Don’t change your entire routine at once! It’s a shock to the system. Try changing one thing at a time to see how your skin will react. You can also give us a call. We have a ton of information and tools to help you out!"

Jill, Owner

"Don’t go to bed with makeup on. And if you don’t need it, don’t wear it!"


We recommend coconut oil or jojoba for removing makeup with zero waste.


Lindsay, Marketing Coordinator

"Use a toner and a moisturizer, no matter your skin type! When I was younger I had oily, acneic skin and I was reluctant to moisturize. Now I know that my acne flair ups happened partly due to lack of hydration. Find a cleanser, toner and moisturizer combination that is specific to your skin type, but don’t skip any steps!

"Keep your skin hydrated. After moving to Calgary from England, it was a struggle to stay hydrated in our dry climate. I’ve found that when I let my face dry out, I develop spots that won’t go away. A hydrosol has been really helpful in preventing my skin from drying out."

Shop Hydrosols

Laura, Perfumer

"Your skincare products don’t need a 20+ ingredient list! You can get the same benefits for a much cheaper price by making the switch to natural oils and serums. Pay attention to what goes into your skincare products and do your research to find all-natural alternatives (we sell a large variety of them in store!)."
