Ingredients with stress relieving properties

Stress may be one of the main reasons why your skin is having such a hard time. Stress causes our body to make more cortisol, a hormone that leads to increased oil production in our skin. This is why those with acne often come out of stressful situations with an outbreak of pimples.

A skincare routine can also help to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Taking the time to massage your face and neck can help to release tension and promote a sense of calm. When you make self-care a priority, you are more likely to get the rest you need to function at your best. You’re also less likely to suffer from stress-related health problems.

The best way to prevent stressed out skin is to obviously avoid these situations and environments in the first place, but in the case it does happen, you can rely on some particular ingredients to soothe and restore your skin.

Aloe vera is a miracle ingredient, known for its strong anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce redness and swelling in the skin. Our Boosting Face Tonic is a gentle face tonic infused with aloe vera and rose water to hydrate and balance the skin’s PH levels and is suitable for all skin types.

Chamomile is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, making it the perfect ingredient for sensitive skin. It's also a natural antiseptic, helping to reduce redness and irritation in the skin. Our Face Masks and Massage Oils are rich in chamomile.

Fragrance free - Gentle yet effective, our Ab:scent collection is unscented and allergen free to help support and nourish the skin barrier for those with sensitive skin or looking for a simpler solution. Sometime less is more…
