3 Simple Steps To Happy. Skin.

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.

Dry, sensitive Type I and Type II skin is particularly vulnerable to sun damage,
especially for those who work outdoors or enjoy outdoor sports. The UV index is
typically low enough between September and March in Ireland forSPF30 to provide
adequate coverage. If you are going on a ski trip or winter sun break, however, you
should use a sunscreen with broad spectrumSPF50.

Eczema is a dry, itchy skin condition that affects 1 in 5 babies and 1 in 12 adults in Ireland. The cold, wet, winter weather typical of this time of year is particularly challenging, because when temperatures dip skin cells dehydrate and compromise the integrity of the dermal barrier.
