With the weather being so unpredictable many of us are faced with dry and dehydrated skin. Most often our skin lacks moisture and becomes irritated with any new product. The reason behind this includes factors like diet, stress and the formula of ingredients used in certain skincare products. The aim is to use a skincare range that has a good barrier function that will help prevent moisture escaping the skin and also keep toxins and microbes out.

The new Esse sensitive range is fully organic and contains ingredients such as aloe vera, seed oils and shea butter, which are all instrumental in helping to eliminate dryness. The products also make use of probiotic ingredients, which aid in restoring the skin barrier function and reduce sensitization. The inclusion of BIOME+ technology in the Esse sensitive range actively improves the microbial mix on the skin, so there is virtually no chance of any allergic reactions when using these products. To minimize any chance of allergic reactions, begin by using the sensitive cleanser, which uses the probiotic extract lactobacillus. The base of this cleanser is an organic aloe vera gel that helps to soothe and calm the skin.

The next step is to gently apply the hydro or nourish moisturisers that are designed to boost the hydrating function in dry, sensitive skins. This helps the skin to trap in water molecules necessary for moisturisation and also has an anti-aging effect. The most active product is the sensitive serum, which contains microbes which become activated on contact with water on the skin. Once active, they equip the skin to rectify imbalances and strengthen barrier function.

This miracle serum can be used during the day and night before applying the moisturiser. Like any product that contains active ingredients, the serum must be kept in a cool place away from sunlight to retain the micro molecules needed for the skin.

The Esse sensitive range has been shown to improve skin texture, reduce redness and reduce inflammation of sensitive skins. All products are of the highest quality and 100% organic, made from only natural ingredients.
