11 ways to use our Balancing Essence Mist

Our Balancing Essence Mist is the ultimate treatment essence spray to balance, hydrate, soothe and condition sensitive and problem skin with multitasking, natural ectoin, smoothing giant sea kelp and calming liquorice root. It´s a true multitasker - read on for our 11 tips on how to use it to tackle dryness, irritation and redness the easy and gentle way!

1. Hydrate

Close eyes and spray Balancing Essence on face after cleansing, before oils or creams. Your skin will feel hydrated and ready to go. Especially when using an oil to care for skin, it is crucial to use a good humectant, i.e. a moisturising product, such as our toner, underneath.

2. Post-cleanse

Spray Balancing Essence on a cotton pad and wipe face after cleansing, to remove any residue from cleansers.

3. Set makeup

After applying your make-up, spray lightly on your face to set your make-up.

4. Re-fresh

Bring the bottle with you and spray on face as a quick pick-me-up during the day whenever needed. The Balancing Essence is also a great product to keep your skin hydrated onboard when travelling or logging in hours in front of the computer. Your skin will feel all refreshed again, without transferring your makeup.

5. "No Cream" alternative for sensitised/irritated skin 

Not a fan of creams? Or looking to pair back preservatives due to e.g. sensitisation or allergies? Mix a couple of pumps of Balancing Essence with a few drops of our Face Oil for one step hydration and nourishment. Great for those of you who can't handle emulsifiers in creams and lotions.

6. After sun care for sensitive skin

Sun mess up your skin? Use the Balancing Essence for natural and vegan after sun care - spritz affected areas to calm and soothe.

7. Irritated skin SOS

Pair our Balancing Essence with our soothing and renewing Calming Serum for some serious irritation SOS. This duo's great for tackling redness anywhere. 

8. Irritated scalp

The Balancing Essence can be applied to the scalp, too, to tackle issues like itching, dryness, dandruff and scalp acne.

9. Post sugaring/waxing

Apply Balancing Essence on treated areas to soothe irritated skin after sugaring or waxing treatments.

10. Hydrate and protect skin

Combine the Face Toner with our softening and protective waterless All-Around Balm to treat dry and rough skin. Suitable for the entire face and body. The Balm is great for kids too, as it completely fragrance-free and has a matte-ish texture that stays put on the face. 

11. Skin barrier repair

If your skin is acting up with unusual breakouts, redness, tightness and simultaneous dryness and oiliness (or a sort of 'shiny' look), chances are you're skin barrier is impaired. The Balancing Essence combined with our 2-in-1 Hydrating Face Mask & Cream and the All-around Balm will help reset your skin. Shop our Skin Barrier Repairing Set for Very dry/Damaged skin with all three products here. The Essence has a pH of around 5.5, which is optimal for healthy skin. If your barrier's out of whack, reach for products with a balanced pH.

Did you know?

An integral part of the balancing, hydrating, soothing and conditioning properties of our Balancing Essence boils down to ectoin, which is a powerful, small, multi-tasking and natural stress-protection molecule, a so-called extremolyte. From a chemical point of view, it is a cyclic amino acid derivate. Extremolytes protect extremophilic microorganisms and plants from the extreme conditions of their habitats like salt lakes, hot springs, permanent ice or deserts.

The properties of ectoin have been proven by various in-vivo studies: its benefits include long-term moisturisation, diminished skin roughness, skin barrier repair and anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties. We get ours from a lovely little company in Germany, where it is produced through biotechnological fermentation from a specific, non-GMO strain of the halophilic bacteria Halomonas elongata.
