How to be "Skin Fit" - The importance of a Skincare Ritual
So why is a skincare routine essential to your daily ritual? How can one get started? We chatted with expert Dion Nash founder of Triumph and Disaster to break it down.
Ritual over routine. How do you define the difference and what is the importance of a ritual in general?
For me a ritual is always infused with a little ceremony, something that takes it beyond merely routine. Ceremony makes things special, gives them weight and importance. When you are investing in yourself, which a great grooming routine is, making it special and valuable comes down to having thought about the process, tailoring it to your specific needs/wants, using great (natural and sustainable) products, and perhaps infusing it with a little ceremony that just makes it your own.
Why is a skin care ritual important?
Practicing great rituals around skincare is like having a great fitness or gym routine. Only through regular attention and practice can you see the results. Anyone can pay the subscription or buy the product. But it takes regular use and effort to apply it and build a routine that actually ensures great skin health. We call it being skin fit. Getting to know the way your skin reacts to different conditions, and using products that make you feel great.
What are some products to get started with?
I would stake my reputation on this trifecta, our face cleanser, our rock n roll scrub and our gameface moisturiser. Use these three in combination and after a month you will have better skin - I have no question about this. Moreover, you will feel great.
How and when should you apply said products?
Ritual Cleanser - Clean your face in the shower daily with the cleanser - just a glob in your hand and rub into your pores and wash off.
Rock&Roll Face Scrub - Twice a week (once for business, once for pleasure , Monday morning, friday morning) use the scrub - make a big mess for 30 seconds, get the forehead, nose and any trouble spots then wash clean (this product will change your life).
Gameface Moisturiser - Finally apply gameface every morning to your clean but dry face. Be liberal or light depending on your skins needs, you will work this out as you go. - but use gameface everyday and dont forget the back of your neck, no one likes a rubber neck at 50!
What rituals do you have in your own life to help relax or unwind?
- A little (not enough) meditation
- I plan and write things down
- I read and make time for reading
- I exercise (not enough)
- I try to give myself a break every now and then.
The rest of the time its family and work.

Love getting my delivery each month!
The team do a really great job. It’s a super easy subscription service which means you’re always getting your kit without having to put much effort into thinking about it. Tbh when I first subscribed I wondered whether or not I’ll be happy with a fit and the variety. Have to say it’s been outstanding, I probably thought that the T-shirts and shirts would be pretty straightforward but wondered a lot more about the pants given I’m a bigger guy but it’s been excellent. Never any dramas if you want to move for change something. Really highly recommend them.
Every interaction, question, and transaction is easy. The people are friendly and responsive and the range means there is always something I enjoy. Thanks again. Richard
