We need to establish healthy habits and daily routines to get the results we desire.
Our skin is a microclimate of ‘good bacteria’ necessary to regulate our skin, fight infection and retain moisture. However, with the increasing use of synthetics, preservatives, parabens and sulphates in traditional skincare, our skin’s natural healing and pH balancing abilities can be dramatically decreased, as good bacteria are stripped, and moisture levels depleted.
Sensitive skin is reactive skin and can affect all of us and at any age. There are many skin conditions associated with sensitive skin and the most common one is rosacea (meaning ‘red as a rose’). This a chronic condition characterized by inflammation of the skin on the face, causing reddening and flushing. Flare ups are erratic, meaning that rosacea sufferers have good days and bad days.
Unfortunately, the condition is not fully understood, and what works for one person may not work for another. Largely, we know that rosacea is caused by genetics and blood vessels that are not functioning as they should, which could be due to many different factors. Once there is a presence of rosacea, there are many triggers that can worsen the condition such as stress, vigorous exercise, diet, alcohol, sun, hot drinks, spicy food, medications and extreme weather.
The healthier and stronger our skin is, the less likely it is to flare up, even if we are prone to rosacea. Plus, a strong barrier will prevent water loss and will allow less irritants and chemicals to penetrate the skin and cause a flare up. In other words, you can avoid chronic dryness and sensitivity, stinging, itching and infections. Sounds good, right? Our Active 16+ Manuka honey combined with other pure ingredients such as avocado and harakeke seed oil, will provide a moisturizing protective shield on the skin, which will calm and heal irritated skin.

When it comes to our Remove Gentle Facial Cleanser, a little goes a long way.

Apply after cleansing and toning. You only need a small amount as it will spread easily and will deliciously soak into your skin.
Our entry-level anti-aging serum with retinol and harakeke seed oil.
Our Level 2 face oil has higher levels of retinol than our entry-level oil – great for those who have used retinol products previously.
Use a cool face cloth when removing cleanser - this will further help to reduce inflammation.
Our moisturizing AM day serum also works as a primer before make-up. After cleansing, just spread a layer on your face, then begin applying makeup just as moisturizer has dried.
