It can often be confusing to find the right product for your skin type, especially when there are so many options available.
In the quest for clear, healthy skin, here are some of our tips to help you decide which products to incorporate into your daily regime.
If your skin feels tight, or you have dry, flaky patches, you probably have a drier skin type. What you need are products with nourishing ingredients to replenish lost moisture. Also, ensure you stay well hydrated and avoid any products that may further strip moisture from your skin such as harsh cleansers.
For cleansing, we suggest our Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser, which is a soap-free formula, so it won’t strip any natural oils from your skin. Our Collagen Boost Night Creme is loaded with Rosehip, Jojoba and Flaxseed Oil for intense moisturising. For the under eye area, our Collagen Boost Eye Cream will help to firm and lift eyelids while reducing fine lines and wrinkles with a blend of certified organic Rosehip Oil and restorative vitamins.
Shiny T-zone or prone to breakouts? As tempting as it is, the trick here is to not use anything too drying - this will only encourage your skin to produce more oil! Instead, use a product that is nourishing but light enough to combat the oiliness.
We recommend our soap-free Gentle Facial Cleanser with the goodness of natural botanical extracts, and our Pure Defence SPF15 Moisturiser, which has a slight ‘mattifying’ effect and is perfect to use as a primer too. Don’t be scared of using our Certified Organic Rosehip Oil once in a while as this will help rebalance your skin and regulate its natural oil production. Our oil is also packed with a natural form of Retinol (Vitamin A), which works at a cellular level to fade any scarring on blemish-prone skin.
If redness or itchiness is your concern, you have sensitive skin. This means it is best to stay clear of any products which contain harsh chemicals, to prevent irritation or inflammation. You can trust Essano™ to deliver the most natural products without irritants or contaminants. Look for calming ingredients such as Green Tea or Aloe Vera will help to soothe and protect your skin. We recommend our Micellar Soothing Sensitive Facial Wipes or Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water to remove dirt and makeup effectively, while keeping your skin super hydrated and supple. For a luxurious treatment without any irritations, try our Collagen Boost Serum, which can be used on its own or before one of our moisturisers. This active serum boosts your skin’s elastin levels for firmer, smoother skin!
