Summer Ready Sensitive Skincare Tips From Elave

Get ready to capture the perfect glow this summer thanks to these sunny skincare tips from Elave Skincare


Exfoliate … gently, but regularly, to shed dead skin cells and encourage the growth of new ones. Your skin will look brighter, smoother and less oily. Tip: Elave Rejuvenating Cleansing Treatmentcombines hydrating skin cleansers with 12% glycolic acid arginine complex to gently exfoliate and stimulate collagen synthesis to reveal younger, brighter skin.

Cleanse every day, your face is covered with bacteria, pollutants and dirt, so keeping it clean is the foundation of healthy skin. Tip: Elave Skin Balancing Cleansing Gelblends natural foaming cleansers with Manuka honey for a deep cleanse, while amino acids and humectants soften and hydrate, and vitamin E and camomile protect against environmental damage.

Hydrate …hydrated skin is smooth, supple and healthy. Tip: Elave Sensitive Body Lotion is a rich moisturising lotion with camomile extract for dry and sensitive skin. Elave Intense Moisture Surgewithcoconut oil and shea butter is rich in vitamin E and natural glycerin to surge moisture into the skin.

Feed …delicate areas with serums and balms designed to soothe, nourish and protect. Tip: Elave Eye Rescue Serum contains natural bio extracts like Brazilian Muira Puama and Madonna Lily to reduce dark circles, aloe vera to soothe, and vitamins B5, C and E for antioxidant environmental protection.

Water … drinks lots of water to flush out toxins and help surge nutrients towards the skin barrier. Take short, luke warm showers with a gentle body wash. Tip: Elave Sensitive Shower Gel is a sulfate-free gel with camomile to gently cleanse delicate irritated skin and vitamin E to re-condition the skin’s natural barrier.

Protect …UV rays cause at least 90% of skin ageing, so use a gentle, high SPF, broad spectrum sunscreen to get the glow, not the rash – or the burn!  Tip: Elave Daily Skin Defence SPF45is an oil-free formula which hydrates while offering high UVA & UVB protection; Elave Sun SPF 30 protects against sunburn as well as helping to prevent fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.

There is no such thing as a safe tan. Tanned skin is damaged skin, pure and simple. Melanin is the brown pigment that causes tanning and is the body's way of protecting skin from burning. UV damage causes premature ageing, wrinkles and cancer, particularly in very fair, freckled or delicate Type 1 and Type 2 skin.
