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.
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.
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.

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.
