Top 3 Tips for Moisturising Magic
How to Achieve Effective Winter Moisturising
Moisturising is one of the main aspects of a skincare routine and is particularly important for people with delicate, reactive skin and dry skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and dermatitis.
At this time of year, harsh winter weather further dries out the skin, making it even more difficult for it to essential retain moisture, so here are 3 Top Tips to ensure your skin looks and feels its best:
If your skin is too wet, the moisturiser will slide right off it. If your skin is completely dry, dead skin cells will undermine its efficacy. It’s best to lightly towel-dry after a bath or shower and apply moisturiser when your skin is still slightly moist. Moisturise no less than twice daily, in the morning – to help protect against environmental pollution throughout the day – and about 20 mins before getting into bed, to avoid wiping it off on the sheets. Elave Intensive Cream is formulated to protect the skin’s natural barrier and reduce flare-ups of dry, itchy, sensitive, ultra-sensitive, reactive, eczema and dermatitis prone skin. The emollient rich formula contains white soft paraffin and fractionated coconut oil to soothe, hydrate and calm the skin by repairing the skin’s protective barrier and retaining the skin’s moisture.
Dry skin can become rough, itchy and flaky so it is essential to use moisturisers containing humectants (substances which attract moisture to your skin) like glycerin and hyaluronic acid and emollients (containing oil and water). Elave Skin Balancing Moisturiser is perfect for facial use first thing in the morning. This multi-action formulation with naturally derived prebiotics regulates the skin’s balance and smoothes the appearance of fine lines and imperfections. Recommended for all skin types, it contains hyaluronic acid, along with antimicrobial Manuka honey UMF 10+, antioxidant vitamins B5 & E, and natural glycerin. Elave Intense Moisture Surge is great for last thing at night moisturising.Thisunique combination of fractionated coconut oil with shea butter is rich in vitamin E and natural glycerin to repair and surge moisture into facial skin.
Cleansing and exfoliation rids the skin of impurities, makeup, oils, dead skin cells and oils. It is wise to use just one cleanser and exfoliant as part of your skincare regime, to minimise the potential burning and irritation. Elave Hydrating Cream Cleanser is a vitamin and aloe vera-enriched combination of hydrating emollients and gentle skin cleansers to gently remove makeup and impurities. Follow up with Elave Rejuvenating Night Treatment with emollients and glycolic acid arginine complex to promote cellular regeneration and trigger collagen synthesis to reveal brighter, younger-looking, deeply hydrated skin.

It’s never too soon for tweeners to start a sensible skincare routine
The first six months of life are particularly important for delicate young skin. When a child is born its skin is anatomically mature, but functional maturity continues during the first year of life and is often not complete until around the age of two.
From the age of two until puberty, children’s skin is naturally soft, smooth and full of water, but it is also a lot thinner and more vulnerable than adult skin and is therefore more liable to be affected by environmental pollutants and irritants.
