Must have! Superfood for dry skin

New Skin Food Face Care: plant power for cleansing and hydrating dry skin.

It’s finally here – the Skin Food new Face Care series! There are two new plant heroes: Olive leaf extract for the Skin Food Day Cream providing noticeable skin soothing benefits. Skin Food Night Cream contains organic sacha inchi oil which is high in alpha linoleic acid. This cold-pressed oil is easily absorbed, reduces trans-epidermal water loss and helps to keep skin smooth and supple. Try it out for yourself!

Why is my skin dry?

The skin on our face is challenged by external factors every day. It reacts to external elements like cold, heat, wind and dust. Our skin is often drier in cold weather because the sebaceous glands are less active. On the other hand, our skin loses moisture more quickly in warm, dry air. Wind increases the evaporation and reduce skin’s moisture content. Cleansing the skin too often is another relevant factor for developing dry skin. Cleansing agents have negative impact on the barrier function. They solve the lipids, so the skin dried out easier.

Our new Skin Food Face Care series comes to the rescue! The formula is enriched with the well-known plant extracts and the replenishing goodness of Skin Food. The skin feels intensively nourished and comforted. 

Pansy is known for its nourishing and moisturising properties. Organic calendula extract nourishes dry skin and stimulates its regenerative capacity, organic chamomile calms and soothes the skin, while organic rosemary has activating and regenerating properties. Organic sunflower oil provides further nourishment. The formulation’s pure plant-based oils are related to skins own fat structures. They can be integrated into the lipid barrier. In this way they increase the fat content of the skin.

This enables both creams to absorb well and support the skin barrier to provide long-lasting nourishment, moisture and protection from drying out. Skin Food Face Care also introduces new natural active ingredients: Sacha Inchi Oil for Skin Food Night Cream and Olive Leaf Extract for Skin Food Day Cream. You experience a transformed feeling of your dry skin – feeling soft, smooth, intensively nourished and noticeably moisturised.

Why is skin cleansing so important?

Cleansing your face helps your skin by freeing it of make-up and dirt and providing the basis for effective moisturization. It prepares the skin to absorb beneficial ingredients optimally. The new Skin Food Nourishing Cleansing Balm gently cleanses while maintaining your skin’s moisture levels. This oil-based face wash turns into a milky emulsion on contact with water and rinses off easily. With natural extracts of viola tricolor, organic chamomile, organic rosemary, and organic calendula and organic sunflower oil, the skin feels clean, nourished and refreshed. Orange and benzoin combine to envelop the skin in a warm, protective scent.

How to cleanse your face

Warm a small amount of the facial cleanser between clean, dry palms. Apply to dry face, neck and décolletage. Indulge in a brief massage: Add some water and massage the balm into the skin using circular motions. Start above the eyebrows and make gentle, circular movements from the inside out to the hairline. Repeat three times. Avoid the eye area. Then, make circular motions around the corners of your mouth with your fingertips. Make the circles larger and finish by stroking down the sides of your neck to your décolletage. Then rinse off with water – you’ll notice how the balm washes off effortlessly. Finished!

Top Tip: Nourishing face mask

Feel like treating your face with extra care? The cleansing balm can also be used as a nourishing face mask, for example, in the evening. When used as a mask, surface lipids on your face rise, leaving your skin looking replenished and feeling silky soft. This little me-moment, built into your day as a brief evening ritual, for example, doesn’t take long but feels good all around.

Here’s how: Warm a small amount of the balm in dry palms and gently apply with fingers to dry face, neck and décolletage. Avoid the eye area. Leave the face mask treatment to absorb into the skin for 10 minutes. To rinse off, first add a little water to emulsify the mask, massage a little and then remove with plenty of water.

Top Tip: Start the day with a quick morning routine

Take a small (about a pea size) amount of the cream and spread it between the fingertips of both hands. Then place your fingertips facing each other on your forehead. Stroke from the root of the nose upward across the forehead, from the inside out. Repeat a few times. This relaxes the forehead and also helps us relax inside. Then move to the cheeks: Spread some cream between your hands. Gently place your hands on your face and stroke your cheeks to the base of your ears without applying pressure. Move from the centre of the face outward. Breathe slowly and evenly, accompanying the strokes with your breath to support relaxation.

The benefits of face cream at night

Our face is exposed to many influences during the day, so giving it the proper care and getting enough sleep at night helps it to recover. During this time, the skin cells’ renewal is increased and also elimination of cells’ degradation products. During this phase, the skin is particularly receptive to active ingredients that support its regeneration. A daily skin care routine with our Skin Food Nourishing Night Cream before bed helps to recover and promotes skin cell turnover. After nurturing facial care and a good night’s sleep, your skin is ready for the new day.

How does the new night cream work?

The new Skin Food Nourishing Night Cream has been proven to increase the skin’s moisture by 81%* in just 15 minutes. It specifically supports the skin’s regeneration processes, promotes cell renewal and strengthens the skin’s resistance. Besides the proven botanical extracts from the Skin Food series, the night cream is enriched with centella asiatica, squalane and organic sacha inchi oil. The pale green herb centella asiatica, known from traditional Chinese medicine has skin soothing properties. Squalane is a component of the barrier layer of the skin. Derived from plants, Squalane can integrate well into the barrier layer and thus supports the protective function of the skin promoting a soft and silky feeling.
It’s extracted from olive oil and softens the skin. Sacha inchi oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. It has a cell regenerating effect and helps to keep the skin elastic and supple. With regular use, the complexion is visibly more beautiful, looking more refreshed and less tired. 83% of customers agree that the skin feels intensively nourished.**

Extra care: Evening face care routine

Put a small amount of the night cream on your palm. Spread the cream in your hands and place them gently on your face for a moment with a loving gesture. Take a deep breath and relax. Now gently stroke over the cheeks to the base of the ears, then over the neck and décolletage. Use the left hand for the right side of the neck and décolletage, and vice versa. During this gentle self-care routine, notice the fragrance of the cream, which is composed of authentic essential oils. Breathe in and out deeply, and feel the sense of harmony it exudes. Aromatic lavender envelopes you in a soothing, relaxing aroma. Together with the balsamic note of benzoin, it helps you wind down at night.
