Skin Care While You Sleep

Our Australian Co-Founder & Chief Formulator, Dr. Mike Thair, gives some insider tips on skin care while you sleep.

“OK, these days many of us are time-poor and sleep-deprived (and that includes me). We need to be aiming at looking good and well rested, even if we don’t feel it. One secret I can share with you is maximizing skin care while sleeping.

You are probably well equipped in caring for your skin during the day against environmental stress.  At night you skin is in repair mode regenerating new cells and restoring damage. Sleep allows for detoxification and nervous system recuperation. This is not a time to be bombarding your skin with synthetic chemical-based skin care products. My advice is to keep your approach simple. What your skin requires overnight is good vitamins, antioxidants and nourishment.

Our Essence Des Plantes Organic Face Oil is the perfect answer in maximizing skin care while sleeping. The organic Jojoba seed oil contains vitamin E and B, chromium, copper, and zinc, which all nourish your skin after daily environmental stress. Organic Sesame seed oil contains linoleic acid that provides both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. This oil is rich in antioxidants, hence they are easily absorbed into the skin, nourishing it from deep inside and promoting skin softness. Organic Olive oil contains three major antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols. Vitamin E accounts for the anti-aging benefits of olive oil as it helps restore skin smoothness. The organic Coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal, and of course an excellent moisturizer. The organic Sunflower oil is also rich in Vitamin E and a strong antioxidant that struggles against the damage done by free radicals, helping in anti-aging. This oil also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial activity

On top of all these benefits, our Essence Des Plantes Organic Face Oil has a fresh, floral, oriental fragrance.  The exotic blend of Geranium Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang flower essential oils convey a sense of well-being and calm. Perfect for a good nights sleep.

Use in the evening after showering when skin is still damp.  Only a very small amount (usually less than 1 pump) is required. Pump the oil into your palm, rub hands together and gently pat your face, neck, and décolletage, spreading a thin even layer. Leave for a few minutes to let the oil sink into the skin.”
