Head to toe dry skin regime

Minimize risk and maximize results with ELAVE Happy. Skin. formulations that work together to deliver top-to-toe solutions

Many factors, extrinsic and intrinsic, play a part in achieving and maintaining healthy skin. As the largest organ in the body, skin plays a key role in protecting us from micro-organisms, dehydration, ultraviolet light and mechanical damage. When the dermal barrier is compromised, it negatively impacts our general good health.

To maintain healthy skin eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit, drink lots of water, avoid alcohol, cigarettes and sunburn, try to manage stress, and get a good night’s sleep. These are simple steps which arm our skin against environmental damage and keep it looking fresh, young and glowing.

At ELAVE Happy. Skin. we believe that how our skin looks and feels affects our
confidence. Healthy skin is happy - and so are you! But what we put on our skin on a daily basis can trigger issues, rather than solve them, especially for people with especially dry, sensitive or eczema-prone Irish skin.

A basic skincare regime should include a cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. if you are feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of skincare products on your shelf, it is likely you have too many for them to be effective. Also, contrary to wishful thinking, skincare formulations do not last forever - over time they become ineffective, or can actually cause irritation.

Sticking to the same range is safest for sensitive skin

Sticking to the same stable of products, especially if you have sensitive skin, is the safest choice. Using the same brand of skincare in a top-to-toe regimen is less likely to cause irritation because all the products are designed to work together to produce the best results.

Mixing and matching products raises the risk that some of them may clash, but it
may prove difficult to pinpoint which formula or ingredient is triggering a reaction. In that case, it is better to strip back to basics from the one brand and assess how that is working before adding any other formulas into the mix.

When too many active ingredients are used, skin may become overstimulated and
overwhelmed, making it more difficult to identify and treat specific concerns like
breakouts, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. One visible sign of this is ‘pilling’
where products react against each other, forming tiny particles that lie on top of
the skin rather than soak into it.

All Elave formulations are subject to the same high international standards of
accreditation, meaning they complement each other and work together more
effectively. That is not always the case. For example, retinol and vitamin C
should not be used together and can cause irritation to sensitive skin.

No-fuss, no-waste and no-risk solutions for every skin type

Elave Skincare delivers care for every skin type with formulations that are easy-to-use, effective and affordable. There is no fuss, no waste, no risk – just pure, gentle, skincare. But that doesn’t mean missing out on highly effective ingredients, since Elave products are packed with skin nourishing goodies including antioxidants, vitamins, SPF, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, glycerin, shea butter coconut oil, and aloe vera.

Elave Facial Cleanser 250ml is a gentle, sulfate-free cleanser with antioxidant vitamin E to protect against cellular damage and repair dry, sensitive skin. The 250ml pump pack is a great value offering which is suitable for daily use, particularly on dry and eczema-prone skin.

Elave Hydrating Cream Cleanser is a vitamin B5 & E, natural glycerin and aloe vera enriched formula which removes make-up while hydrating the skin.

Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Gel blends naturally derived cleansers with pure antimicrobial Manuka honey UMF 10+ in an oil-free formula..

Highly effective full-size kits save you time, trouble and money

Elave Rejuvenating Cleansing Treatment contains hydrating skin cleansers
combined with 12% glycolic acid arginine complex to gently exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, actively promoting cellular regeneration and stimulating collagen synthesis.

For two highly effective, full-size products try the money-saving Elave Rejuvenating Skin Collection containing Elave Rejuvenating Cleansing Treatmentand Elave Daily Skin Defence SPF45.

Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiser contains naturally derived prebiotics to regulate the skin’s balance, together with antimicrobial Manuka Honey UMF 10+, hyaluronic acid, vitamins B5 & E, and glycerin. It is quickly absorbed with a matte finish that leaves the skin rebalanced, soft and refined.

Elave Intense Moisture Surge contains fractionated coconut oil and shea butter
which is naturally rich in vitamin E and glycerin to repair and surge moisture into the skin. This combination of active hydration and repair leaves even the most sensitive skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.

Formulas designed to work together for sensitive facial skin

Elave Eye Rescue Serum is a light, easily absorbed balm with a matte finish
specially designed to rejuvenate the delicate eye area. The skin is hydrated and
smoothed thanks to a combination of natural bio extracts, including Brazilian Muira, Puama, Madonna Lily and Aloe Vera.

For a money-saving pack that meets all your needs, try Elave Skin Balancing Essentials. The three products are designed to work together for even the most
sensitive, reactive skin types. Contains Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Gel,
Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiser and Elave Daily Skin Defence SPF45.

and no frills, just affordable, effective, sustainable skincare that guarantees Happy, healthy skin. All the products are available on this site or from Tesco,  Dunnes Beauty, Chemist Warehouse and community pharmacies.
