Achieving healthy, glowing skin is as easy as 1, 2, 3, with ELAVE Happy. Skin.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year, but a change in the weather can challenge your skin. One minute, you are in an over-heated living room, the next you are out in the cold, damp air. Central heating pulls moisture from your skin – and wet weather does the same thing by increasing trans epidermal water loss. When the skin barrier is compromised, the result is tight, dry, flaky skin, so it is vital to maintain a healthy dermal barrier with gentle, but thorough, cleansing, moisturising and protection.
Elave Skin Balancing Essentials is a super value kit of three skincare formulations designed to be used together to nourish and protect dry, sensitive and reactant Irish skin. This handy pack contains three vitamin and bio extract-infused formulations to cater for all your basic skincare needs: a cleansing gel, a moisturiser and daily SPF skin defence. These products are suitable for all skin types and are guaranteed oil-free, gluten-free and cruelty-free.
Step 1: Cleansing - Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Gel 200ml offers a unique blend of natural foaming cleansers, camomile and antimicrobial Manuka honey to remove daily residue, oil, make-up and impurities. Effective cleansing is the basis of all good facial skincare. Cleansing twice daily deep cleans your skin by ridding it of all the impurities it encounters during the previous 12 hours, including dirt, oil and makeup, to promote clear, healthy, glowing skin. Failing to establish a proper cleansing routine means your skin will be more liable to drying, premature ageing, blocked pores and breakouts.
Step 2: Moisturising - Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiser 50ml with vitamins B5 & E, glycerin and hyaluronic acid, restores the skin’s natural balance without stripping out the natural oils or blocking pores. Moisturisers work by increasing the water content in the skin’s outermost layer, enhancing its ability to hold water and so relieving dryness. Moisturising also covers small skin fissures, providing a soothing protective film that protects skin from friction. Dry skin looks dull, rough, red and scaly, but when your face is properly moisturised, it will look plumper, smoother, brighter and younger.
Step 3: Protection - Elave Daily Skin Defence SPF45 50ml is a multi award-winning dual action moisturiser and sunscreen which guarantees very high UVA/UVB protection all year round. This invisible zinc, non-comedogenic formula is absorbed quickly into the skin to hydrate and help repair environmental skin damage. An SPF of 45 helps guards against the signs of UV exposure such as dark spots, roughness and loss of elasticity. Use over or instead of a moisturiser.

Christmas, as merry as it is, can be stressful on our skin - late nights, rich food and too much alcohol can all wreak havoc. Bearing in mind that our skin is already being challenged by cold, wet weather, we need to take extra care to make sure our dermis is nourished and protected at this special time of year.

Your face is literally always on display, so it is natural to want to show the world a healthy, glowing complexion. However, exposure to the elements also means that facial skin is most vulnerable to environmental factors, physical damage and signs of ageing.
Failure to look after the dermal barrier on our face can produce highly visible consequences like breakouts, flakiness, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Elave Skincare formulations are specially created to combat these issues.
