Summer Prep - Cleanse, Hydrate and Repair

Start prepping now for summer skin that is ready to glow 

Thanks to ELAVE Happy. Skin. achieving sensational summer skin is as simple as Cleanse, Hydrate and Repair. Getting the basics right helps to minimise the potential for sensitive skin reactions. So, to make sure your skin looks its very best, whether at home or on holiday, it’s time to revisit your daily skincare regime. 

Elave Skincare is wholly made in Ireland and provides a complete solution for any skin type, but particularly fine, sensitive, eczema-prone skin. Our formulas omit harsh ingredients like alcohol, scents, dye, MI, sulfates and parabens that can trigger irritant reactions. They are also 96% vegan and 100% cruelty and gluten-free.

It is essential to deep-clean your skin twice daily to rid it of impurities like dirt, oil and makeup. Cream cleansers are ideal for dry skin as they tend to be more hydrating, but if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you may find a foam or gel cleanser works better for you. If a cleanser makes your skin feels dry and tight, then switch to another product. 

Cleansers should leave skin feeling soft, smooth and rehydrated

Elave Facial Cleanser with antioxidant vitamin E protects against cellular damage, clearing away make-up and impurities without causing irritation. The 250ml pump pack is a great value product which leaves skin feeling soft, soothed and rehydrated. 

Elave Hydrating Cream Cleanseris a great option for especially dry, eczema-prone skin. This unique combination of hydrating emollients and skin cleansers in a vitamin B5 & E, natural glycerin and aloe vera enriched formula removes make-up while hydrating the skin and preventing moisture loss, irritation and premature ageing.

Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Geloffers a unique blend of natural foaming cleansers, camomile and antimicrobial Manuka honey. Soothing camomile improves blood circulation in tissue and helps reduce inflammation.  Manuka honey keeps skin hydrated and has antimicrobial properties which discourage spots.

Moisturisers work by increasing the water content in the skin’s outermost layer, enhancing its ability to hold water and so relieving dryness. They also cover small skin fissures, providing a soothing film that protects skin from friction. When your face is properly moisturised, it will look plumper, smoother, brighter and younger.

Apply facial moisturiser twice daily while your skin is slightly damp

Apply a facial moisturiser twice daily - in the morning after cleansing, and in the evening, between cleansing and going to bed. Stick to tepid, not hot, water to avoid further dehydration and lightly exfoliate with a soft washcloth or cotton pad to slough off dead skin cells. Apply moisturiser while your face is slightly damp to help with absorption and create a barrier to protect your skin.

Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiserwith vitamins B5 & E, glycerin and hyaluronic acid restores the skin’s natural balance without stripping out the natural oils or blocking pores.Elave Intense Moisture Surgedelivers a powerful fusion of coconut oil, shea butter, vitamins and glycerin to repair and surge moisture back into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and rejuvenated.
