Stress and Skin

Posted 03/02/2021

How your skincare can help ease your stressed skin back to glowing health.

As our body’s largest organ, it’s no surprise that stress-induced symptoms often manifest in our skin. Think breakouts, eczema flare-ups, rosacea and more.

Stress Symptom: Inflammation

Hit the reset button with this award-winning hero. Soothe dry, redness-prone or uncomfortable skin. Super Boost Night Drops contain pure plant oils like avocado, poppy and hemp to moisturise and boost your skin’s natural lipid profile and help improve the overall resilience of your skin’s barrier function. Infused with CBD and strawberry seed oil, this treatment helps to reduce irritation and inflammation to leave your skin glowing and in perfect zen.

 

Stress Symptom: Breakouts 

Don’t dry out your blemishes! Calm breakouts with this clever blend of 2% salicylic acid which helps dissolve compacted skin cells and penetrate deep into the pores to ease congestion. Teamed with tamanu oil, a natural antiseptic, Blemish Rescue Oil tackles redness, inflammation and calms infection. Skin stays soft and supple which means it’s quicker to heal and scarring is minimised.

Stress Symptom: Dullness 

Infused with AHA glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid, this serum works its magic on dry, parched skin. Hyaluronic acid hydrates deeper layers of the skin and AHA gently exfoliates dry skin to leave you soft, supple and glowy! Natural neroli flower water delicately hydrates and refreshes.

Stress Symptom: Sensitivity

Redness and dullness be gone! Cooling and refreshing on your skin. Broccoli seed and rosehip oil deliver a natural lipid boost while hyaluronic acid increases hydration and plumps skin. Natural and bio-engineered peptides boost skin’s natural defences by supporting lipid function and your skin’s unique microbiome.

Better Beauty Sleep: 3 simple steps

Create a calm space

A good night’s sleep is written all over your face. Help your mind unwind with the calming scent of lavender and chamomile in our dreamy pillow spray.

Relax with a bath

Soak the day away (and get glowy skin while you’re at it!) with our hydrating Antidote Bath and Body Oil. The calming blend of lavender, chamomile and rose can be added to a warm bath or applied directly to your body for skin that feels smooth and supple.

Feed your skin & body

Packed with lemon balm, magnesium and amino acids, Super Sleep is formulated to encourage a good night’s rest. Your skin’s natural renewal process accelerates at night and deep sleep is essential to this function. L-Tryptophan and L-Theanine encourage the production of serotonin, a precursor to melatonin, the sleep hormone. Lemon balm and magnesium naturally aid relaxation, helping you wake rejuvenated.
